I am currently digging information in regards to subjective and objective realities and I was wondering if there is a name or a term for the following interpretation of reality.

It goes like this:

Only subjective reality to be considered real, where the apparent objective reality rules of physics are defined by the only reality compatible with all actors who experience subjective realities.

Please note that I recently moved this question from Physics Stack Exchange.

    To identify this world-view I'd need a better description, as I cannot disentangle this one.The quote appears to endorse 'subjective Idealism'. A subject requires an object so the idea that only the subjective is real is not common.

    The traditional term is subjective idealism. For an interesting modern twist on it see Subjective Interpretation of Quantum Physics by Ruyant.

  • @Conifold, your link to subjective idealism redirected me to monism which provide this nice diagram. From this diagram, I would say that the Monism Idealism would be similar to what I am referring to, I would simply define it as Matter < Mind(s) instead of Matter < Mind. Thx for your guidance.

  • "Monism" is not a specific term, it refers to any philosophy with a single "root nature" of reality. In particular, materialism and idealism are both monisms, and there is nothing it says concerning subjective/objective.
