Re: Things that override "Common Sense,"
In my mini-system we act by a kind of consensus - act, think, and exist. I don't really think there's an issue of one person overriding the other any more than in a normal singleton.
To explain . . . a normal singleton might be at a great party despite needing to get up early the next day for work. There are two conflicting desires: stay at the party, or go home and sleep. It's not necessary for that singleton to have a method for overriding desicisions that are unwelcome, or arbitrating disputes. Ultimately, whatever gets decided is what's more important to the person at that time.
If a multiple system involved group members with extreme and fundamental differences in desire and motivation, I can see that that could cause massive problems (of course that kind of conflict can also exist, and cause problems, for a singleton). Perhaps a certain amount of compatability between thoughts and desires from one system to another is necessary for high level integration and co-consciousness. Or if not necessary, perhaps helpful.
