go ahead, friend.
I will try to resist the urge to ask next time Yang or Neon are in here. XD
oh god please don't if I get an answer I'll never be able to stop thinking about it x.x
maybe they can put it under a spoiler if they decide to tell the thread about it, so you won't be able to see it unless you click the spoiler
....that could work.
So the implication is that two fragments of your mind might be using your literal subconscious as a private bedroom venue to make sweet pseudo-hallucinatory love in an artificial headspace?
This is almost too wild. How is this real, the world is... just, wow.
I used to think that I came up with some stuff that was pretty out there
But your reality is stranger than my fiction. Uh, nothing negative meant by that
....why did you have to go and say it
no offense taken; you are not wrong.
I don't know, having brain ghosts making out in my head sounds pretty sweet.
//joke, I'm aware that the reality of all this is far from sweet :c
I'm currently baffled/amused by the fact that if cA imagines them having sex, it's not the same as the above even though its all in one brain
yes, but why would I ever imagine that
If CA imagines them having sex while they're also having sex in their subconscious, does that mean that they are in fact having DOUBLE SEX, one fakereal, and the other realfake, in independent parallel processes?
(I don't think any amount of psychedelics could take me anywhere close to this level of abstraction, to be honest)
....yes it does
that's 100% what it means
(I know right)
(DID: better than any drug)
tl;dr Dear CA's brain, how the fuck? why the fuck?
I honestly think there are some really important things about the nature of consciousness and human neurology/cognition to be learned from people with DID, and I'm kinda disappointed that science isn't getting on that post-haste.
(Not to imply that people with DID should be, like, test subjects or anything, unless they volunteer to do that. It's just that I already feel like I've learned so much from this thread, just by asking questions!)
I volunteer to be a test subject
(I am also seriously disappointed science isn't getting on this post-haste tbh. there's so little known about this condition and things and it frustrates me endlessly.)
I apologise if this has been answered/talked about elsewhere in the thread! I am sick rn and bad at reading
Do you have a lot of control in regards to when alters front/sit in the passenger seat with whoever is currently fronting? Is it easy to change who's fronting, and how long does a change take? Can changes happen fairly rapidly?
(I'm sorry if this is Horrible And Intrusive I'm just very curious and apparently my curiosity doesn't have boundaries but seriously if I'm out of line please tell me)
Also I did the quiz thingy and uh I got 53???
I'm pretty sure it's just me in my head???????? I mean there are multiple me's but they are all me and we shout at each other a lot. But Me!Me is only ever the one in charge, even if the other me's are strongly disagreeing with what I'm doing. But I guess I still consider them separate to the true me but they're not... different people??? Isn't this just auto-personification??? I'm very confused now.
ETA: I don't even think I disassociate I just day dream a lot and subsequently don't pay attention and do things on autopilot, and I have a shitty memory
