You basically answered this yourself. If I am God and have unlimited power, surely I can develop a way for me to "hide" this information from myself and take up the role of one person.
As a human, I know I can do this in my own dreams. I can choose to be this character or that character. It's pretty simple. So it seems likely to me that God could do this as well.
He can wish or believe you out of existence.
He can wish me out of his own existence. Steve can change Steve's internal reality. Everything you quoted from him could be taken in this context.
He can also change (what I call) the outer reality. For example, he published a book, and when I walk into the bookstore and happen to notice it, he has changed MY reality as well.
Technically, Steve could try to kill me and really wipe me out from existence as well. He'd probably fail though. Just giving you a fair warning, Steve.
Subjective reality articles can be confusing at times because the author may switch from an objective-speak to subjective-speak, sometimes even in the same sentence. For example, if someone says "you don't exist," what they might really mean is that the whole concept of "you" is an illusion. They don't literally mean you don't exist.
Keep in mind, I don't fully believe in subjective reality like many here either. I think some things are subjective and others are objective. BUT, I just wanted to chime in and try to help clarify. There's a difference between Subjective Reality and Solipsism. I used to confuse the two.
