I like the shared consciousness view because it seems simpler, but does it
actually mean anything?
Myself and a colleague's pc are on the same central hard disk drive.
==equivalent to one consciousness- or does it?.
Butsince we have our own passwords, and sharing some server management
software,  we can't access each other's files or front-end software, so we
effectively have two independant systems, equating to two independant

So I'm not sure if a single consciousness.
