Hi Alan,

I agree pretty much with everything you said.

"But we are not one person: he is he; and I am me. "

Of course when you try to define 'person' or 'he' you need to identify what you mean with a particular body. That makes each one of 'us' different and recognizing that difference is vital in order to function. But if you try to pin down the essence of being and ask something like, yes I see the body, but what exactly is doing the thinking that seems to be being done by that body, I think the answer is the same for all bodies. In my view, there is only one thinker. It is what you call an ocean of consciousness.

Warm regards,

Paul
