We're Going to Write About This Next, but We're Playing with Mind Maps - There Are Directions to Try This One out :)

By Aynetal3 @aynetal3
Ok, this 

This going to be long ... It's about 9:00 am now ... We have been up for more than several hours. We've been working with the mind map (we left a snapshot of it yesterday) today it's like getting a video! ... really excited about it. We need to run an experiment
... I think we got the real "Brain" on line at our NEWS DID/MPD blog ... can you check it out to see if it works?

First go to:
Then scroll down toward the very bottom (well at least just to on top of the picture where the girl is holding an award and it says "Dissociative Edublogology." We're trying to get you to our mind map - which is a BIG block light blue on the top and white on the bottom (Takes up a screen size).
The first thing you should see in the map section (light blue) is a line reading "NEWS Real State of Personal Identity with the Curation and Blog Culture." To the right side you will see a line that reads "Multiples who Blog." Click on that. Under that you will see "Honored Bloggers." Click on "Honored Bloggers :)"
The map should move for you ... we're going to have you click on one of the bloggers, you could choose any of them, but for example we'll have you click on the one that says "Self-ish Too Triggering." They are pretty much in alphabetical order. That is the name of one blogger of 140 that is multiple. (This is JUST at the beginning of us forming a system to write map/outline).
So you've clicked on "Self-ish Too Triggering." Take your time to look at other areas too ... it's part of the fun!
Now there are links from the "Honored Bloggers" which moved to the right side of the map. Under "Self-ish Too Triggering" Click on the line that says
"Overrode reptilian brain with cognitive brain."
You'll notice that under the light blue screen there is a white screen and that says, "Overrode reptilian brain with cognitive brain" August 7, 2013 (1), NEWS August 7, 2013 (6)
"So we messed up three weeks ago and went to Maine. Pretty much we overrode the reptilian brains with our cognitive brains. In part this happened as we went to maine with some people. We kinda went with society’s understanding that going to the ocean for a paddle must be wonderful for everyone at all times or something is wrong with them."
This is a "note" letting viewers know that the title of this line came from a reference at the above blog link which is the actual address for the blogger Self-ish ... (dayodayo...), and that the full annotation from that blogger was written on August 7th and it is the first quote I took from him that day. It also notes that the annotation was copied in the NEWS blog on August 7, and it is the sixth blog that was written on that day. The lower the number, the more recent the blog annotations/bloggers (on the 7th there's like there's about 55 blogs that have annotations curated).
The part that reads, "So we messed up ..." that is the actual annotation taken from that blogger - again to read the full entry for him that day, you would click on the linked address and it will bring you back to that persons blog which you might want to do to put it in context.
Ok, now for the sake of our example, click on "Went on trip to Maine with other people."
You might notice under that line it reads "Expectation to do wonderful things or fall under peer pressure," and you could click on that, but this time look to the side of the "Went on trip..." line to "Triggered feelings when co-worker..."
Take note too that this whole map is a movable outline, so if you want to go back to the previous entry, just click one of the lines above the main line (the one circled and in the middle).
Anyway this time we're going to click on the line "Triggered feelings when co-worker..."
To the right you will get nine or more statements from the blogger "Just Be Real" - You can tell its a blog/blogger because I am starting those lines with an * (asterisk). You can skim over that list to the right and see what other kinds of thoughts "Just Be Real" had. At any time you can click on any line and it will lead you somewhere.
This time click on the word "Triggered" in the middle of the blue lines from the center to the right. Basically, then we're looking for thoughts to do with triggering (after only doing a handful of bloggers/blogs).
Over the word "Triggered" You will see the line "Dysfunctional Recurring Internal Force Imposed (Effect)." This is like someone did something wrong to the multiple which lead to a negative effect (the others' actions were "forceful." On the right you will see some of those effects that are negative such as "addictions, Entrapped (stuck), desire to escape/avoid/withdraw, lack of sleep, etc.)
Under "Triggered" you can see lines connecting being triggered to "Being Sexually intimate, being triggered by peers (their behaviors), and a line about not recognizing triggers. All of these things are going to take marvelous explorations through the continued curating of annotations as we continue to read other bloggers (including our own) randomly over time
This time we are going to click on the line at the top that says "Dysfunctional Recurring Internal Force Imposed (Effect)." The items to the right are now at the bottom of the map, but we're going to walk things backward to where we started.
This time click on the word, "Behavior."
You'll notice that the Behaviors this line pertains to are the behaviors of the "self" (above the word Behavior). Other things from the "Self" are beliefs, feelings, and thinking. They all lead to places broken down from those leads. We are still going backward though so click on the word, "Self."
Now we are back to where we started, "NEWS Real State of Personal Identity with the curation and Blog Culture ..." If you look to the right you will see the things I've paralleled with "Self," such as "Mainstream culture, Multiples who Blog, and Trusted Significant Others."
You've got the general idea of how the Map works. What the plan is to continue adding lines and annotations to the map until we can discern patterns that assist us in understanding what multiples are writing about. It's a process of Analyzing and then we will be Synthesizing.
I'm thinking this is how (outline/map) our next book is going to get written! Sure as hell am excited ... Like lets see what we can do in the next several years! Ya know?! It's a plan!
