When you tell me "I see a red pencil", I don't postulate "You". Rather,
I have no reason to doubt that there is "You", a person, who sees a red
pencil. Now, I may be wrong. Perhaps you are a robot that is programmed
to say "I see a red pencil" when that object is its visual field. Then
there is no "You." But there is still "Me" wondering what will happen
