Why do you seem to yourself to be a single person instead of many?  Possible
answer: you can only recall being vividly conscious of one thing at a time
(even though you might have actually been conscious of several).  I think
you should consider the possibility that people really differ in how
they can divide their consciousness and how well they can recollect doing so.
