We’ll never hear about this again. And we may never hear from those scientists again.
Big Oil’s gonna be piiiiiiiiissed
Somebody go put these folks in the witness protection program before they get hits put on them by ExxonMobil
just in time for me to get my first whip
PUT THIS EVERYWHERE.
Now HERE’S a post that needs 4 million notes!
I’ve actually heard of a man mysteriously disappearing after he refused to the government to not go through with his making of a substitute of gasoline with water. So everybody needs to reblog. Seriously.
I told my mom about this and the first thing she said was “He’s gonna disappear.”
My partner’s partner co-created this masterpiece, and it is relevant to every single human. [Though the creators, and myself, wanted to see more diversity in it, I still think it’s powerful despite that shortcoming.]
“My pursuit of orgasm is neither unnatural, nor dangerous, nor scary, nor an infringement on your religious liberty. My sexual activity exists for my benefit, not your pleasure.”
“Do not be afraid of a world where women know themselves, their voice, and their power. That world has arrived.”
General question for the folks in the multiplicity community. Do you ever experiences your alters outwardly?
I understand by experience headspace, and the ability to inwardly see an environment and individuals within that environment in headspace.
I don’t understand by experience the concept of fronting. Cofronting perhaps, yes, but there’s never a time I’m not with my body. (I do understand the concept of fronting, it just has never happened personally, and I and generally they like it this way.)
I’ve never seen anyone discuss seeing alters projected into the world, but this is in a large part the most notable ‘outward’ way mine interact. I don’t literally see or feel them, and they are not literally able to affect the world (nor, usually, does the outside world affect them), but they can choose to project themselves into the world around.
One question leads to some others, I’ll stick here for now and perhaps queue some for later.
I can’t help you on the projecting headmates question. That’s never happened to us.
The best way I’d explain our experiences of not fronting is it’s kinda like watching a movie. Most of the time you’re aware what’s going on but not an active participant and just watching as things happen. But sometimes you accidentally fall asleep; when you wake up you’re still watching the film but you have absolutely no clue what happened during that time. Hopefully someone will tell you what you’ve missed or will at least leave you notes, but other times you just have to puzzle it out.
Or you may find yourself up front, playing the main character in the movie you were watching.
I realize they had to introduce characters and such, but this particular episode seemed rushed. All of a sudden—BAM! All the messy loose ends get tied up.
There was a whole lot of ableism in this. ”Oh look, here’s a crazy person who hurts people. Then the bad guy he trusted to help make him better gave him pills to make him even more crazy so he’d kill the shrink’s wife! Isn’t it innovative to make the only obviously disabled person the bad guy?” We’re not going to give up on the show until we’ve seen a few more episodes, but this is definitely an unsettling start.
I hope they spend more time the next few episodes in developing Joan as a character. This episode was mostly introducing Sherlock. We’ve seen a little bit about Joan, but we want to know more.
All in all, though, there’s a lot of promise in here. I’ll definitely be waiting for next week.
