Information on How We Work
Welcome to our System
Personal System Index
Before we start, please visit the forum we co-run for empowered
multiples, and anyone else who has headmates here.
We have also started uploading our book to the internet, as it is written. This can be found here.
We also run an IRC channel - #plurality on irc.synirc.org
This site used to be hosted elsewhere, but has moved to meeble. Great
thanks to our
A welcome to the Collective, from each of the members.
We are neither MPD (multiple personality disorder) nor DID
(Dissociative Identity Disorder) but are instead a natural or healthy
multiple or plural system.
We are Pagmies, a system that believes it was created by trauma, but
that is open to the concept of healthy multiplicity, and that believes
that that is common. We are not a system full of serial killers,
although one of us is sometimes homicidal, or a system of sluts,
although one of us can promiscuous, we are a system of fully rounded
people, with emotions, likes and dislikes. None of us is the *angry
alter* and whilst one fo us looks after us, she is not a stereotypical
protector. We are people, just like you are a person. We have fun,
laugh, play games, we get sad and cry and we get angry and hurt people.
We go to college and we do our work. Being plural is not an excuse for
anything, in our opinion. We sometimes forget to hand our work in, but
that is not a reason to then say, “Oh, I am multiple,
sorry” any more than it is to blame an action on someone
else. As a system we must learn to do right, and whilst that will take
time, letting this take us off the hook is unhelpful. We should not
have to hide being multiple, but the fact is that we do, and that is
simply how things are. If the stigma ever goes we might say, but for
now we shall not. You will not find the bodysurname on this site
anywhere, so don't bother looking. Email us at
email@example.com sure, but don't pester us as to who
we are. We are Pagmies Collective. That is all you need to know.
Feel free to ask us questions, that is what the board is for, yes, even
stupid questions. But do not be offended or try to change our views on
ourselves. Do not say that we are in fact one person, because we are
not, we are lots of individual people in one body. Do not say we are
faking it, just because we know each other and are friends. Do not say
we are copying, we know what we are. Do not deride the systems we
admire because we count them amongst friends or role models.
We are proud of
those people, they are strong and we admire them. So don't deride
people for the wrong reasons but instead ask yourself why being
multiple scares you too much. We are not crazy, we are sane, despite
having issues. We have been through a lot and are allowed our
eccentricities. This is a promise and a request from us. From this we
hope you learn a lot about how we work, because this is a part and
parcel of who we are. The contract will keep developing and expanding,
currently to take the body and use it safely is a show of consent and
willingness to hold to the contract that we are developing. So do not
treat us as different or special, and do not attempt to allow us space
to develop, we have all we need, do not repeat everything you say for
all of our benefit, if it is important we will write it down to keep.
We have a set of rules that the Collective must abide by, and not
abiding by them means that they lose all access to the body, and all
right to fronting for a period of time decreed by Council:
1. Act (when people are not aware of our multiple
status) as the 17 year old singlet, and answer to the body-name.
2. Act with respect to those that claim to know
the body, and treat them as friends unless you have cause to behave
3. When leaving fronting, remain co-aware for an
appropriate period of time, in order that the next person to front is
aware of what has happened.
4. Write anything of importance that has occurred
on the noticeboard, so others can be informed without you having to tell them.
5. Attend the college classes that it has been
deemed are your responsibility, unless you have adequate cause to
6. Do not inform others of our status as multiple
without permission from Council.
7. Take responsibility for any of your actions
within the Collective or whilst fronting.
8. Do anything within your power to protect the
Collective if necessary.
