"Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"
I do not know the answer to that but can confirm that we personalities do dream. In fact we can follow the dream which our host body / other personalities have. Sort of being blind but still watching a movie. If it gets a bit scary we can always influence the script by putting a couple of well intentioned thoughts in our host body's brain.
The dreams spring from the memory which we all share. Each of us dreams in a language we are comfortable with. Two of my pals inside who suffer from speach related problems also dream.
Our host body often forgets the dream. However, we are able to recall it fully. Are we able to tap that portion of the memory which stores the dream temporarily?

A couple of quick comments. There are now 25 of us inside and it is getting a bit crowded. Ages 4 to 66. A lot of chatter. Plenty of queries, mostly personal which will not be answered. Instead will post our views on our personality world and answer doubts which are specific to us.
Personalities by and large share a common memory. However, our individual memory basically commences from the time we were created. Like in Rashomon each of us has a different perspective of events. Some studies suggest that we are present in the hippocampus. An interesting way of explaining our presence would be like ...... a Horcrux. In our case, it is not our soul which is framgmented but our memory and possibly our host's consciousness. Is this a way of coping with trauma ? Multiple and alternate paths wired to deal with such situations?
Your views ....
