Abstract

I argue that the presence of subjective, qualitative consciousness in our world is - at first sight
maybe surprisingly - related with ontological complexities surrounding measurement in quantum
theory. Both issues can be cleared up by a suitable redefinition of the notion of observer - by
equipping them with subjective ontology and waving goodbye to the global one, covering “the whole
reality”.
