I remember you quoting that expression but I did introduce the term in
the thread "roadmap short"
the 15 augustus 2006
and even before:
(got the idea from Plotinus who wrote an entire treatise on it where he
criticizes Aristotle on the personhood of the big one.)
Now I talk on this on the list in 2001 where I attribute a (non
equivalent) 0-person notion to late James Higgo:
There, somehow, all notion of person's view are illusory so that only
the zero-person would be real. (I don't believe this in the sense that
those illusion are as real as we are ...).

Except that incompleteness makes (with comp) any third person view
limited and perspectival in a non trivial way. The zero-person reality
(here arithmetical truth for example) transcends all person views. It
is really the notion of truth, and it is not definable by any machine
by Tarski theorem.
