Introducing the brain: multiple personalities (Introduction)

We know about multiple personalities that are separate. A definite strange structure. This article introduces a slightly different form in which there are multiple people who really relate to each other in some measure:

"A plural is a human being who says things like: ‘I’m one of many people inside my head.’ Although they are quite rare (it’s impossible to say how rare), plurals are increasingly visible on social media and in the occasional popular media article. At present, there is a handbook online about how to respond to a co-worker’s ‘coming out’ (as the document puts it) as plural.

"You might think you’ve heard of plurals if you’ve heard of dissociative identity disorder (DID), because, like plurals, people with DID experience themselves as being psychologically multiple. But many plurals don’t meet the diagnostic criteria for DID. Often, this is because they don’t find their plurality per se to be distressing or impairing."

Comment: there is no point in copying out any more. The people exist. i believe both types of disorder has the same one underlying soul connected/working with a defective brain with a resultant strange output of personality.
