Well, there is ultimately a unified region: the person affected by multiple situations could be considered a region through which other regions overlap.
Think of jurisdiction. You have a property. It’s your property. Yet, it’s also the property of the police in some circumstances. It’s also the property of the local, or the state or the federal government. It’s also the property of the electric company, and whatever services come through.
Your property is a region through which multiple other regions intersect, each going in different directions. When all is well, the overlap is invisible.
Good question. I think so. If you’re dealing with two overlapping situations, you can only function in ways that serve both situations in some way, yet each of them try to draw you into areas that take you completely away from the other situation.
