I don't see how each gear is always meshed, they are turning at different speeds and would each turn the output shalf at different speeds, when are are not in use I cannot see how they would all be connected, turning the output shalf at the same time. Even if they are, atleast one gear needs to mesh with the selector rod chooses a gear.
You just posted a diagram showing all gears meshed... I'm not sure what your confusion is. I never said they are turning the output shaft at the same time, please re-read. Engaging a gear and meshing it are not the same thing (since circa 1929).
