Open peer commentary on the article “Construction of Irreality: An Enactive-Constructivist Stance on Counterfactuals” by Andrey S. Druzhinin. Abstract: Since an observer arises in the experiential domain of languaging, and because everything said is said by an observer, it would be misleading to refer to a single reality constructed in language. Rather, we should assume multiple realities whose construction depends on individual memories as complex dynamic systems of past perceptual experiences - this is where the target article falls short.
