|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.|
