momo Wrote:This is sparked due to some poking I've done of Blake and I, and trying to figure out whether we/I actually are a multiple system or a median system (not exactly a multiple, but at the same time not a singlet either). I've been doing some research to find which actually fits us best.
From the definition on Astraea's Web, I read that median systems are "the presence of more than one person in the body, but without the independence of persons in a multiple system. Persons in a median system may be dependent upon a single individual (who may have created them at some point), and unable to exist without that central person."
My own poking:
Blake formed from me, but then did quite a bit of developing of his own. Without the core Lishie, I'm still not sure if Blake would be independent enough to cope. I mean, the way I see it ... two people with linked arms. they have their own way of seeing things, their own sexuality and gender, but they're still attached. Lishie is the core; she has the essentials for living and Blake ... relies on her for those, in a way. I just want to research into different things, because I'd like to find a term I'm comfortable with using.
Argh, sometimes I really don't like my endless questioning.
*claps hands* So, I thought I'd start a discussion thread for anybody curious. Post links to good sites, good articles, anything that could be of help and research. Do we have median systems here?
I liked this article.
Saw this awhile back, but we now have an answer!
Me and Gabriel are not a median system, we're both completely different people just sharing the same body.
However, like House Hesson, we have a person who's a "character I made up" named Alessandra here (oOo...isn't that name familiar--if you read our writings, lol), but she's not the talkative sort so we have no clue when she came into being and without me, I know for a fact that she wouldn't be able to interact or be independent and Gabriel would refuse to do anything to help her stay around...So me and her are kind of like a Median System.
