    You said:

    Could you (or anyone) explain what the 'division of experience into subjects
    and objects' means. Are you talking about differentiating the one that
    experiences from that which is experienced or dividing an experience into
    experience of subjects from experience of objects?

    I'm trying to nail down what SOM is. Do you think that mind-substance
    metaphysics would be another name for the same thing?

    I didn't mean for it to be a replacement, just perhaps a useful translation
    of one to the other.
