Abstract : We join Füllsack in his effort to untangle the concepts of circular causation, macro states, and observation by reanalyzing one of our own simulations in the light of these concepts. This simulation presents an example agent that keeps track of its own macro states. We examine how human observers (experimenters and readers of this commentary) can consider such an agent as an observing agent on its own.
