A theory of self is indicated which is a direct application of Newton's Fifth Rule. The subjectivity of anyone's autobiography is subject to the Rule, by transformation into operant factor structure. The formulation is fundamental, dependent upon factor (quantum),theory. The principles are introduced in terms of Virginia Woolf's autobiographical Orlando: they apply, of course, to any autobiography and are the foundations for the science of self in the subjective framework.
