Hello, and welcome. If you’ve been handed this README, then you’re someone I trust. You’re someone with whom I want to share the whole “me,” or rather should I say, “the whole ‘us’”. You see, I (we) am (are) plural, a system, a collection of multiple persons in the same body, three sloths in a trench coat. (That last one’s a joke.)

Oh boy, this just got a bit awkward, eh? Let us, uh, show you a picture of our late hamster, Estelle.

Okay, hopefully we’re all feeling a bit better. Let’s resume. <3

Our experience

This is all still very new to us. What we can say is that much of our life has been marked by internal forces working at cross-paths with each other. Realizing and coming out to ourselves was a spiritual experience where all-of-a-sudden these energies, these people, could talk to one another and cooperate. This made us feel the most comfortable in our body and our brain than ever before.


We are, to the best of our knowledge, three entities in a closed system. Collectively we answer to Stef (she/they). We do our best to be honest with one another, be kind to one another, and cooperate towards achieving our common goal: namely to be a kind human and leave the world a little better and a little weirder than we found it. Our names were picked out of a bag of names we have either used or considered using for our vessel. There isn’t anything particularly meaningful about them.

Stef (she/they) ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ

Stef fronts most of the time these days. Since its her name on the vessel right now, she feels an extra sense of responsibility for keeping everything in order. When she’s not on the beam, she can be a bit controlling. She is curious, sincere, and pragmatic. Her goal is to someday be a mother and a wife.

Stephanie (she/her) ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Stephanie is a younger (adult) spirit. She’s silly, flirty, very outgoing, sarcastic. She can be a blind optimist. Her ultimate goal is to do humanitarian work.

Tom (they/he) ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ป

Tom is an older spirit, who fronted most of the time until late 2021, when he consciously handed the reigns over to Stef. Tom is very smart, a bit of an absentminded professor type. Tom abruptly starts fronting when they see an injustice being carried, a person in danger, or sense that the system is in danger. Tom’s goal is to get out of the house and teach somebody something fascinating.


This page will be a work in progress for some time. Please feel free to ask questions. Here are a few I anticipate:
