A new member's introduction.
Hello. I'm Canopus, a new member. I have nothing interesting to say, as I dislike introductions and never know what to say. I don't like talking about myself.

I'm uncertain of exactly what it is that makes me identify as Otherkin; that is, I'm unsure of why I'm Otherkin or what I am. I've identified as non-human on a non-physical level for quite a while, I first started thinking of myself as such around a year before I came across the term 'Otherkin'. I think that I'm something birdlike, but I do not feel comfortable with nor capable of giving you explanations concerning the 'how' or the 'why' at this point in time. I don't believe in souls whatsoever, so I suppose that rules out a lot of what I could attribute this to. I suppose that I view Otherkin as an entirely psychological phenomenon. Of course, that's one of the reasons for my joining this forum - I cannot see demonic or angelic kintypes being purely psychological, but they still do exist, and so I want to observe people with these kintypes and what people think of their own kintypes, to try to see if I can convince myself to believe in something of a more spiritually-inclined origin.

Despite what I may have led you to believe, I am somewhat spiritual by some definitions. I certainly don't subscribe to a specific religion, and I do not view deities as anything more than the Earth, the wind, the rain, the sun and the sky. I worship these natural things as though they are deities. I am a pseudo-animist, I think, as I believe that nothing has a soul, but everything (excluding non-living objects and prokaryotes) has a consciousness. I identify with a few mythological and/or cryptozoological birdanimals on archetypal levels. I have an ungulate totem, but am a ninny when it comes to ungulates, and have no idea what animal it is. I couldn't tell a moose from a duiker.

I'm an argumentative, analytical person. I enjoy various different types of music, but have a distinct preference for grunge and rock. I write quite a bit in my spare time, and enjoy idle amateur meteorology and climatology. I look forward to getting to know several of you.

Hehe, Laiko, that made me grin. I'm sure that fire and water can work together somehow, right?

Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> Interestingly, I notice more people ascribing to the psychological theory of otherkin in the therian community than the rest of the otherkin community...and I guess identifying with something birdlike puts you closer to the therian camp. Of course it's entirely possible that you aren't a therian or even something birdlike, just an interesting thought.
