We each are, I believe, the universe -- at least the only one we'll ever know.

Alternatively, from _TSAIB_ (see thread on Popper's philosophy of mind) section 
P1.1,"Kant's Argument":
"As Josef Popper-Lynkeus put it, every time a man dies, a whole universe is 
destroyed. (One realises this when one identifies oneself with that man)."

The difference being that, in the alternative view, we may be regarded as a 
singular universe not, as per solipsism, the universe of all.

Doesn't matter where he is, that's where he is
