In sum, the simplicity is the indivisibility of the action of intellectual marshaling in regard to the formed thought that emerges (which it coalesces about and holds). Roughly, then, the encompassing of a formed thought within or by the intellectual marshaling that I am is not divisible or distributable. I try to clarify exactly what this comes to in the next subsection. ’ He says, It is obvious that in attaching “I” to our thoughts, we designate the subject of inherence only transcendentally.
Suppose right now there were “homunculi” in me each thinking a part. Would that mean I wasn’t thinking (I wasn’t the homunculi collection)? Suppose even that several persons were each thinking a word of a verse, as in the William James example. Would it follow that nothing was thinking the whole verse? Of course none of the persons were, but where is the contradiction in saying there is a group subject (composed of these persons) thinking the whole verse? All that matters, when we think impersonally, is that the whole thought pertain or belong to something (even a group), not that it be a whole accident or action that is more than co-occurrence of component actions.
It can’t apparently be an activity or action, because the cogito reveals not just thinking (acting) but that which thinks (acts). It can only then be either a substance or a state inhering in a substance. But if the psychological subject inheres in something else, then what it inheres in would be the psychological as well as the metaphysical subject, as the inherence would only be that by which that (metaphysical) subject was the (psychological) subject of thinking. Thus, for example, it isn’t a person’s present state that thinks of the sky’s being blue but the person who so thinks by being in that state (by that state inhering in him).
