We seem to agree on this, at least some of the time! If we entertain such notions, the question then presents itself - assuming one doesn't accept, with Hoyle, that this similarly entails "only one" multiplexed stream of consciousness - how "only one person" can be conceived as being the subject of every experience "simultaneously"?
