Abstract

We define and characterise two kinds of facts that play a role in quantum theory: stable and relative. We describe how stable facts emerge in a world of relative facts and then discuss the respective roles they play in connecting the theory and the world. The distinction between relative and stable facts resolves the difficulties pointed out by the no-go theorems of Frauchiger and Renner, Brukner, and Bong et. al..
Basing the ontology of the theory on relative facts clarifies the role of decoherence in bringing about the classical world and solves the apparent incompatibility between the linear evolution and projection postulates.
