Reality is relative, not absolute.

@HesDeltanCaptain,
Your microscopic nesting argument appears to a be physical analogue of the infinite regress in language of words ( like "is") defining words. Both stem from the dynamic nature of human needs and contexts which continuously refocus what we all "attention". A snapshot of a "relatively satisfied"state of attention is where we might use the word "reality". It has nothing to do with a subjectivity-objectivity dichotomy....merely the degree of agreement about appropriateness of snapshot with respect to particular contexts.
