It is true that TO AUTO is, in itself, an ambiguous (nominative/accusative)
form; however, the verb here is 2nd plural, which would rule out the nominative. TO
AUTO as a nominative would function as a third person subject, which use is ruled
out by the verb.
I'm interested in knowing how you would possibly translate this thought, even if
the verb had been 3rd singular: "Let the same one think." ?
