Half-Eggists (Tib. སྒོ་ང་ཕྱེད་ཚལ་པ་, Wyl. sgo nga phyed tshal pa) — a subdivision of True Aspectarians in the Chittamatra school. They believe that there is only one aspect of the perceived and only one perceiving aspect of mind. Like an egg which has been cut precisely in two, there are only these two aspects to mind. The proponents of perceptual parity claim there are many different aspects to the mind, but the half-eggists say this would mean that people would have thousands of different minds.
