This seems to me to be one of those questions that we answer by our own
assumptions. Since AUTWN is plural and probably masculine, it could include
the paralytic. It could I suppose refer just to those carrying him, but I
see no reason in the text for such a limitation. I am sure the gospel
writer assumed that he permitted himself to be brought to Jesus.
