But the stimuli these brains are responding to, no matter how many  
copies or how perfect - are all different. Different positions in the  
same room, at different luminosity, different temperatures, and  
subjective points-of-view.

Or, do you suspect that all of the Mes will stand there, only moving  
about in synch, like the Rockettes, speaking in synch, summoning  
Mothra, or otherwise be incapable of doing anything different from  
one another.

Even though each one is now however many seconds into an individual  

The simplest example. Ten of me can't all occupy the same square foot  
of floor space. We (or to you, I'd guess "I") spread out. From one  
vantage point in the room, you can see down a hallway to the Men's  
room. This is not within the field of vision of all 10, just one.

Being incredibly vain, this discovery causes this one to leave for  
the Men's room... or... what? All ten walk out?
