How can you be in two places at once ?
Your soul, or 1p-you, cannot.
A viewpoint implies a certain place, but I don't see that one can
only be conscious of one place at a time. Consider the operator
in Florida who is operating a drone over Afghanistan. His
consciousness is aware of both places at once.
OK, and with the TV or the net, in that sense most of us are aware
of many places at once, but not in a sense relevant for the 1-
indeterminacy question, I think.
But I think it could be. If the drone pilot were in a more
immersive simulation he might just shift his attention from
Afgahnistan to Florida the same as shifting your attention from your
desk to your monitor. While his body would have a definite
location, his consciousness would not.
Indeed. That might perhaps help people to understand that
consciousness is not something located anywhere. But I don't see if
this would help to get the indeterminacy point, where the thought
experiement has to be the less ambiguous possible. The non location of
consciousness is a more advanced topic.
