A system reset is the debated terminology for the experience where a system "resets" as a system, with old members ceasing to exist and new members being created. They are noted to mainly occur in polyfragmented or otherwise large systems[1], and can be voluntary or involuntary[2][3], and can be triggered by extreme stress[3][4]. It may be related to the medical concept of epochal divisions within systems with dissociative identity disorder and other dissociative disorders, which was observed in 1988 in 35% of a sample of systems[5] with "extremely complex multiple personality disorder", later changed to polyfragmented dissociative identity disorder. It was coined by Mod Baopis of now-deleted blog thatmultiplefeel on Tumblr[6]. The term is heavily debated, being considered a possible tool of abuse[7], especially in the system exclusionist community[8]
