I thank Pucceiti for his kind and very generous introductory comments and helpful critique. The majority of our differences seem not to be serious. In regard to the split-brain subjects seeing two different things at the same position in space at the same time, Puccetti spells out in detail exactly the point I was hoping to make more succinctly and assumed would be taken for granted by readers acquainted with the split-brain literature. It seems a legitimate subtlety to refer to the bisected brain in the singular here just as one often refers to a pair, or a couple, in the singular.
