Splitting up?
So, we've been thinking. There are three people inhabiting this body and we don't really like it that way. We don't really like each other too much and at times things feel excessively cramped. Basically, we'd like to be singlets.

So, what we've been wondering is.. Well, is there a way to make that happen? Can two of us just "ship out" and leave the other behind in this body? Has anyone heard of this happening? Can anyone conceive of a way to accomplish it?

Any other ideas about such a concept? Would any of the other systems here take an opportunity like that?

Re: Splitting up?
I have a friend of mine that used to be a multiple system and merged the personalities...however I am no longer in contact with him, as I REALLY didn't like one of the personalities and it left too much of an impression on the whole for my tastes...

So, though I know that's possible, I can't really help you as to how you'd accomplish it.

PS: Nor is it what you're asking for - but it IS another option.

Well, we can't merge, as far as we know. We didn't "split" from one into three to begin with. We became attached. We were all formerly single parts of other separate entities.

Same with him. Before the merger he had at least a dozen different entities. I think maybe 5-6 were splits from the original person, but I know at least 2 were seperate entities that came in.

Re: Splitting up?
Hmm. Well, our egos might not let us merge. XD We'd like to be intact. Plus, we already don't like one another. Why would we want to become one another? XD

But thanks for telling us that. We'll consider it. If we were to merge we wouldn't be so different, outwardly, anyway.

Re: Splitting up?
I've known a couple of multiple systems for a while. I've seen people merge, split, evict and even "destroy" each other.
Rare is a multiple system of perfect balance and mutual contentment with one's headmates.

0.0

We don't want to destroy each other. 0.0 We just have trouble doing just one thing and sticking with it. We don't have enough common interests. We take turns reading different books.

Eviction wouldn't really be necessary, either. We'd like to have two of us move out willingly and give the third a chance to live on his own. William hasn't had a full life as a singlet at any point so we'd give it to him, probably. Plus, he's the most balanced. XD

Re: Splitting up?
I think it's entirely possible. Why don't you take some time and discuss the options with everyone and then all come to a mutual decision as to who leaves and who stays? Obviously all three of you have strong personalities, so perhaps just coming to the conclusion that two of you need to leave would be enough?
As long as there's an agreement and understanding, I don't see why two of you couldn't just leave and not come back. Perhaps perform a ritual of closing to complete the process?
Please keep up posted on your progress.

Re: Splitting up?
If 2 of you do decide to leave, I think it would be interesting for you to leave some sort of 'farewell post' here, though. I would be very interested to read it, at least.

Re: Splitting up?
Have you looked into the Native American concept of soul loss/soul retrieval? The idea is that through normal (and abnormal) life stresses, bits of us can sheer off and leave us not entirely complete. Soul retrieval is the process of getting the bits back. A similar process could possibly be used to get rid of parts that have added on, as it were.

What would concern me though before taking any action is first of all, where do the people who leave actually go to? Do they just die, or what? Second of all, are you all "complete" people? If not, two thirds moving out could be rather unpleasant for the incomplete singleton left behind.
