### Progress in a Many-Minds Interpretation of Quantum Theory.

#### quant-ph/9904001

** Abstract ** In a series of papers, a many-minds
interpretation of quantum theory has been developed. The aim in
these papers is to present an explicit mathematical formalism which
constitutes a complete theory compatible with relativistic quantum
field theory. In this paper, which could also serve as an
introduction to the earlier papers, three issues are discussed.
First, a significant, but fairly straightforward, revision in some
of the technical details is proposed. This is used as an
opportunity to introduce the formalism. Then the probabilistic
structure of the theory is revised, and it is proposed that the
experience of an individual observer can be modelled as the
experience of observing a particular, identified, discrete
stochastic process. Finally, it is argued that the formalism can be
modified to give a physics in which no constants are required.
Instead, “constants” have to be determined by observation, and are
fixed only to the extent to which they have been observed.
