So then it doesn't end where some other person begins.
Appearances arise and pass according to interdependent causation: They do not arise from or dissolve into some sort of independent, eternal, absolute consciousness/awareness, that stands behind/separate from the arising and passing of phenomena. These appearances are disjoint, each phenomena (of the 6 sense doors) arising and passing in each moment; with each moment complete in itself, yet interconnected with each passing chain of events.
Likewise, each moment is non-dual without a dichotomy of an apprehender/apprehended split. Therefore each phenomenal moment, is
the totality of suchness, without separation of a Mind/body dichotomy. Hence the saying that "the three realms are Mind-only (and I'm not proposing "Mind" as something substantial. It too is dependently originated, empty and free from all extremes.)
A more skillful way of looking at that quote (in order to avoid subsuming everything as a universal consciousness, which Buddhism rejects,) is through the simile of Indra's Net from the Avatamsaka Sutra.
