“… sign (switching) or symptom …” 

“The term multiplicity itself cuts across these preferences, as it may be viewed as a sign (switching) or symptom (with some degree of {co-presence}), or as the structural end-product of whatever event, actively enacted or passively suffered, underlies the appearance” (Dell & O’Neil, 2009). [Definitions]


{co-present} The experience of more than one person fronting at once; more than one person experiencing the world-at-large at the same time, without necessarily being able to know what other people at the front are thinking or feeling (Astraea, 2014).
