I think this may be a linguistic confusion, as Miriam is proposing a
collective noun (audience) and then qualifying with a singular
circumstance (individual).

Perhaps the way to write this was:
" ... is not the perception each individual in the audience individual?"

Is not every drop of rain that falls into a puddle individual? And
then we create the 'collective noun' of rain fall(ing).

This could be a matter of not seeing the trees for the forest.
