One Celestial from the Stars
That's me. =]

I have gone back and forth about kintype and other such things for years, coming up with different theories that were only vaguely related. Extraterrestrial, Djinn, polymorph, therian and fae are all words that I have used to describe myself. I have recently begun to understand the connecting link between them, as well as the intense phantom sensations that I experience.

I believe that all of those terms are partially correct in describing my kinship, though not necessarily my "species".

I have, I think, met another of my species. This being is non-physical, an energy being, I would say, without language and without a completely static shape. It began hanging about and I would "feel" it occasionally, and I eventually began to communicate with it, though it takes quite a bit of effort as I am a being who uses language. I think that I have also met a couple of shadows out and about, as well, and so Archer's mention of "white light-y cousins" made me think there may be or may have been a connection. I have no concrete ideas about why this being, my "companion", has taken to following me about but I do get feelings from it that give me a tiny idea.

I will describe my "species", explain why I jumped on other incomplete labels, say what I can about the origins of the species and, hopefully, the information will be useful to someone in the future.

I wish I had a name for the species. =/

They are "from the stars", I believe feeding off of the fusion energy produced by stars in space. I hypothesize that a greater number of them may be found drifting around the larger stars. They are "star-like" in that they take on the qualities of the energy they consume. They are not solid, physical beings, though they may be able to compress themselves into such in an environment that requires it. They are polymorphic in the sense that moving energy may change it's apparent shape, though I think it is more like hot molecules bouncing off of one another that causes the irregularity. They "split" into two, or many, separate beings when there is enough fusion energy present to feed all the parts. I believe that they have an above average ability to sense, process and otherwise manipulate different kinds of energy. My "companion" has tried to share with me what it is like to just wiggle about in space, blinking from one star to the next.

I felt that I was an extraterrestrial due to the feelings that I have when I look at or think about the stars, thought I could have been a Djinn as I feel an non-solid body would better suit me and because I have a knack for "making wishes come true" (which, it turns out, has merely to do with exercising personal will), am polymorphic in a way, have mental "shifts" like a therian in which I think/feel more human or "star creature" depending on.. well, a number of things, and called myself fae or fae-like because of the similarity in energy, as well as being a bit of a trickster, myself.
The phantom sensations I feel, I think, come from a common "form" assumed by many of my kind when confined to a physical environment.

Feel free to ask questions. I'll post more information as it is .. revealed to me, or whatever. XD

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
It's late here, but I will post a more detailed response tomorrow when I'm a little more awake.

One thing just caught me, though - you don't seem to have a name to refer to your people. With non-physical beings it isn't always easy to get one, because it's not just a case of translating something into English. However, it can sometimes help to have a name to use - as our human brains are very language oriented, a name can help with focus.

I noticed that your username here is ancient Greek. My knowledge of that language is severely limited and I don't have any textbooks handy, butMy Ancient Greek is lacking (severely!) and I don't have any textbooks handy, but I Googled a bit.

"Asterios" is ancient Greek for "starry". "Asterion" was a Greek king, whose name literally means "ruler of the stars". Now I have no idea how to turn the first word into a noun or pluralise the second, but they might be interesting for you if you want a label to pin on your people, if only to make it easier for you to identify them.

I stress "might". All these years later and my brighty lighty cousins are still just, err, brighty lighties <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
Astero/Asteroi would be the appropriate singular/plural noun, I believe. Asterio/s could also mean "starry one/s", which would also be appropriate.
I'll put some thought into that.

I have been trying to communicate doubt to my "companion" (perhaps, I should call this being Asterius?) that we are the same type of being. I believe that last night that was finally successfully understood and it responded in this manner:
I was laying in bed, on my side, and it "laid down" over/in me, so that I could feel my energy and it's mingle. It felt tingly, startling, but also very .. "right". I felt very "homesick" but also comforted and I gathered from it that this is what these creatures do to .. socialize?

Just an interesting thing. =/

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
That's a very interesting way for your companion to react, and certainly seems like progress on the communication front.

I have some theories/methods about communicating with non-physical entities but I don't think I even need to offer them here as you seem to be making good progress!

Question - can you astrally project, or do any other kind of out of body exercise? If so it might be very valuable to attempt such when your companion is near, to try to examine what (if any) energy body you seem to be aware of in yourself, and possibly even attempt to travel to the sun to see if you can sense any of your people nearby.

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
Oh and, before I forget - do you have any thoughts with how this nature could/does fit in with your multiplicity?

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
I would very much like to hear your ideas about communication. I am struggling with it, and seem to be much better at expressing myself than interpreting the ideas from my companion, who, for ease of communication's sake, will henceforth be referred to as Asterius.

As for astral projection and out-of-body, I have never sincerely attempted it because I had decided that I didn't believe in it. However, I have been rethinking a number of things that I didn't believe in, so I suppose there is some due experimentation on that front.

With the multiplicity, well.. since Puck and Iago "left", I feel the horrible doubt that there were never "here" to begin with. It makes me very unhappy to think about, so I try not to. I do suspect that Puck, at least, was/is of the same species. If I didn't have .. "memories", though I am not sure that's what they are, of how the three of us had gotten "stuck together", I would even postulate that Puck and I were/are the same entity at some point, especially since *I* attained independent consciousness in the past decade. It would also be fitting with what little I know/interpret about how my species reproduces.
Iago.. is/was an entirely different matter. For him, I think, having a physical body was "normal". His only experience as an energy being, that we were aware of, was when he and Puck got stuck together originally, which, we believed, was thousands of years ago, at least. =/
*sigh* Thinking about this is very depressing. I miss them, in spite of how unhappy we all were with that arrangement.

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
Archer and I seem to have similar ideas on how formless energy beings communicate. The energy itself is the communication, but it's also what the being is made of. So communication involves a sharing of self. Touching another would be the most efficient and most detailed method of communication, though energy can also be sent at a distance.

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
I would describe my efforts to communicate as "attempting to think energy".

That sounds about right to me.

Re: One Celestial from the Stars
One way to think of it is that in your mind, there is a split second of 'knowing' before a thought is translated into words. Growing up in a human society, that gap becomes smaller the longer we speak verbally. So, it might take some sort of meditative practice to recognize that it even exists. That 'knowing' contains the energetic essence of what that thought would contain.
