'Collective solipsism' is a bit like 'massless black hole', or 'noisy silence' (contradictions make great poetry).

Introspection is a profound experience. We take it for granted, but for the individual it forms a sea of separation between the 'self' and anything external, such as a process " 'created' collectively in the minds of many."

Hence, although one may be capable of imagining such a mechanism, one would never be able to comprehend it. There is always that sea of separation.
