If someone has Multiple Personality Disorder (or whatever they call it now) are all the personalities separate physical individuals or just one
physical individual with splintered thought processes?
From my own messed up mind, not that I consider myself having a disorder, how about the brain analyses all people around it and creates (detailed)
images of them in the mind, from which the brain 'guesses' how the other sees you, then creates a personality out of these subtle influences (picked
up by how someone is treating you or one's attitude) which the brain then 'wears' like a suit? Meanwhile the complete person is in a kind of deep
sleep, dreaming it's wearing this suit. All other people see this suit and they approve or not, reinforcing this suit which makes the wearer feel
better making it even more difficult to see through and let go of it.
Most people throughout life would stick to one suit (usually daughters choose their fathers' image of a female suit and sons whatever the mother made
for them) but once it's let go one can make their own suit. If one survives mentally ofcourse. One of the most primal fears of man is the suit would
one day be gone, as they didn't create it themselves nor know how it is created if one ever loses it, it's very difficult to recover from.
Anyway the universe is full of seperated things, some come together temporarily to allow for experiencing this reality. Individuality is the greatest
good imho, otherwise everyone would be sucked up in this hive mind believing they make choices themselves but really is just the suit doing it's
