Would an observer see itself being in a superposition?

In a sense, tautologically, an observer is not a superposition of itself, because “an observer” can be defined as “a consistent history”.

an observer ~ a consistent history

Because “state” is expressed in RQM as the correlation between two systems, there can be no meaning to “self-measurement”.

Would an observer see itself being in a superposition?

When we say that “before observation, observable B is in a superposition of some eigenstates”, you have to specify

  1. it is a superposition of what?

  2. it is a superposition with respect to what apparatuses or experimental setups?
