An ociliple system, sisasystem, or subsystem fluctuates between singlet and plural.

This can happen in multiple ways, including but not limited to:

  • A headmate that gets frontlocked, or otherwise has poor/no communication with the rest of the system for a period of time that feels like they have become a singlet.
  • A system where all headmates fused together, and then later gained more headmates.
  • A system where all headmates but one went dormant for a period of time, before later coming out of dormancy or gaining new headmates.
  • A system where all headmates but one walked out.

Osciliple systems can be median or multiple. Some osciliple systems may feel like they are fluctuating between monoconscious and polyconscious.
