revised explanation of aggregate median structure 

in regards to the dominant aggregate median aspect of our system, we use a tiered identity model to describe the composite that makes up our current self at any given moment. some names repeat for historical reasons, which should not be taken to imply equivalence across levels. the scope of a given name is indicated by a numerical subscript suffix.

0, metaphor: foundational/base model for the subjective experience of the world. very slow to change. deeply influences the way reality is perceived. at time of writing, our metaphor is "prism, mirror, lens₀", taken from Dhalgren's thematic refrain and optical metaphor for consciousness &c. Aspects of consciousness are seen as a shifting set of interrelated components variably and reactively refracting, reflecting, or distorting the expression of some deeper Self or Selves.

2, mask: contextually mediated aspects of identity, including some degree of empathic mirroring. can change situationally on a scale of hours or days, or suddenly in response to extreme situations. masks have underlying complexes of acute physical, emotional, & spiritual imperatives, which are mapped onto the closest representative identity: limni₂, aster₂, ramshackle₂, rue₂, etc.. mask at time of writing is ramshackle₂, who is associated with mystic exploration, gruff engagement, playful subversion, and hedonism.
