Like to you (Z), I am histories of experiences which are associated with me
(Y) and I am a body which is located right now in a house in North Carolina
(X). Your Y is private, but your X is much more public - I am a body in a
house in NC to any Z who is a person, dog, cat, etc. Not to a plant really,
or a molecule, to those distant kinds of Z, I don't exist at all.
Everyone's XY for me put together adds up to basically (Absolute minus Z).
My Z is what is being borrowed from the Absolute inertial frame
temporarily, and my XY is the like shadow that it casts. It's complicated
of course, because all of the X, Y, and Z feedback multiple loops on each
other too. Very pretzely.
