Another weird question from me.

In Majoras Mask, you always come back (with the song of time) to a fixed point in time.

Which makes that at any given time, there might be 2-3 links running around termina.

So as link, why can't you see other links running around, even if the what you've done in your 'past' still happens (dungeons being done and stuff)

Why would there be more than one? Each time he goes back in the past he... goes. He's not in the "present" anymore. – Ben Brocka Dec 23 '12 at 17:45

You said in the question "what you've done in your 'past' still happens (dungeons being done and stuff)" but this is untrue, when you play the song of time everything reverts back to the first day, people get un-rescued rupees get un-collected, dungeons get reset. The only things that stay are the items like the bow and things (which we can assume are magic), and the markings on links body (the stamp he gets to save rupees in the bank).

Another answer to this question would be that this would take a tonne of storage space to save all the movements of every single link.
