        One could still ask for the effective probability of a
sub-observation. For example if I had 100 eyes, I could ask for the
effective probability of an eye seeing red.
        Your above argument does not make any sense. Yes, part of us
would see a lawful world; in your view, we would also see many more
non-lawful worlds. Nothing is gained by declaring these views 'connected'
and avoiding the question of why we see a lawful one.
