Otherkin Origin Theory
Dunno if this have been posted, did some searching and I didnt find anything new.
Dont like thread necromancy.


The Otherkin Origin Theory is a theory ive been working on to explain otherkin at large.
This is what I believe...

I believe that a butterfly, as example, cant reincarnate as a tiger.
Nor do I believe that souls can be destroyed.

If you would kill every animal of a specie the souls would, in theory, merge and become a more major soul.
As example...if you would kill every tiger of a specie the souls would merge and become...several major soul that would reincarnate in a human body.

I believe that the human body is the most advanced container on earth and that the most powerful beings would choose them as their avatars.

Now to non-therian otherkin...


Look here...the universe is big, like...uhm...well, its big. ._.

There must be soooo many planets out there with alien life.
And above that we have the Astral plane!

I think there are "streams" leading from "the void" (the birthplace of all souls) to each and every planet.

Above you read that souls cant be destroyed, so what if a planet get destroyed?

I believe the souls will join other streams and get spread across the universe.
There must be so many alien otherkin that may not know what they are...


Then to the astral plane!

I believe that the astral plane may be the source to most otherkin on earth.
Maybe they choosed to come here and incarnate in order to live a physical life and...do the things we do here on Earth.

Angels may be souls created by the first one to protect earth on the metaphysical plane and incarnate in order to help people in need.

Vampires may be souls with an malfunctioning energy-generation and cant supply him/herself and have to drain energy from others.
A vampire may be a human with energy problems, but also an very powerful entity who need energy in order to sustain its own existence.

There may be many types of energy parasites roaming around like insects on the metaphysical plane and since it drain energy you have to also drain energy to feed the parasite and to fuel your subtle body.

Since the veil (the barrier thingy separating the physical and metaphysical) is getting thinner and maybe thats why there are so many otherkin popping up and maybe thats why there are so many vampires (energy parasite victims).

The other kin I really dont know anything about and coose to keep digging.


Use this theory however you want, maybe you may get some ideas, I know its a pretty wild theory. >.<

Re: Otherkin Origin Theory
Okay, just a couple things.

1. Not all otherkin even believe in souls. There are even those that believe that their otherkinness is a psychological thing, not spiritual at all.
So a theory regarding otherkin origins that revolves around souls is bound to only work for "some" otherkin and possibly insult others with the assumption that all otherkin are soul-based in origin.

2. Not everyone who believes in souls is going to agree with you that souls are indestructable, and very few of them are going to believe that human souls are somehow "more refined" than others.
That is to say, "my" soul is created, and if you can build 'em you can disassemble them. I firmly believe that souls can be "destroyed", not in the sense that you can destroy energy, but in the sense that if you peel an orange, eat it, and bury the rinds in the yard, the orange you ate is "destroyed".
I also believe souls can easily incarnate across species borders and that you do not need to wipe out a species for the souls to merge before they can move on.

3. Why exactly do you think the human body is more advanced a container for souls than any other?
I mean.. it's relatively "new". It's flawed. It's not all that attractive. It comes with a lot of drawbacks. I mean,.. just look at a house cat, you have to agree that they got a way better deal than human beings.

4. The Void is the birthplace of all souls?
Not mine. Sorry, but no.

5. I left my place of origin without it being destroyed.

6. What definition of the Astral are you using here?

7. The metaphysical is not a separate place from the physical. The astral, if you are using it in that sense, which you seem to be doing, is thus not another place of existence, removed and separate from the physical place we live in. It's just another layer of it.

8. Okay, the veil.
The thing about the veil is that it's not an actual barrier between worlds, or at least, that's not what the term meant until otherkin started running around with it. The metaphysical and the physical are not separate things, they exist in tandem and affect one another. The Veil is not a barrier between them but a metaphor for how we can not "see" all that surrounds us. Our eyes are physical and they see the physical, while the metaphysical is still there, but we do not see it. Thus the veil metaphor works like this, "what we see is limited, like a veil before our eyes".
Also, the veil is not becoming thinner. The world (only the western, cause you know, most of the world doesn't swing back and forth as much as we do here) is swinging back around to a more spiritual and philosophical way of thinking again. It's not the first time and not the last time the change has passed.
Otherkin is nothing new, they aren't popping up now for the first nor last time, google "Empedocles" and "Transmigration of the spirit" for just a little touch of history regarding the concept.

.. just the first couple things I thought when I read your post.

I might go into it with more depth later.

Re: Otherkin Origin Theory
Given that I don't believe in "the veil" or "souls", the theory just doesn't work for me.

Re: Otherkin Origin Theory
Maaan.
I told ya, its MY theory and I mentioned it was pretty wild.

1. That was new, I cant think like that (yet) so I cant form anything from their view, sadly. <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->


2. In my beliefs souls are indestructible and endlessly recycled.
They may be trapped by some means and we forget our memories every time we reincarnate, but never fully destroyed.

I have hard to believe about the species crossing in reincarnation due to own beliefs and data.


3. I havent seen a bull on the moon, a mouse scuba diving or a dog talking with a cat.
Humans ARE smarter than animals, our (all actually...) brains are awesome and thats proven.

I respect the nature and I like animals.
But to be serious, I want to be human. Tongue


4. In my own beliefs I find the void the place where all souls return when their body die and wait for their next incarnation.


5. That was not 100% what I meant.
I meant that if you destroy a planet the souls have to go somewhere and that they will probably split up and go into other streams of the void and therefore reincarnate on other worlds.

I find it possible that souls may change stream without their world being destroyed.


6. The astral/metaphysical mirror of the physical world.


7. Cool. *no good comment >.<*


8. I kno, I kno...

Just have a hard time expressing myself. T_T



The thing here is...
This subject is damn hard.
Some may say one thing, then you ask the next person and they have an another view and ideas that contradicts what the first one said.

Lets keep this topic hot, the more posts it get, the broader view we can get on the subject. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Why? Plenty of therians identify with more than one animal.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:Nor do I believe that souls can be destroyed.

Define "destroyed". I believe that souls cannot be destroyed on an energetic level. However, they can be fractured, moved about, recombined, etc. to such a degree that the original soul no longer exists. In that case they *can* effectively be destroyed.

As example...if you would kill every tiger of a specie the souls would merge and become...several major soul that would reincarnate in a human body.

I just don't agree with this one. I personally don't agree that you'd have to kill off a species for that species to reincarnate as something else. Nor do I believe that souls of an extinct species would somehow merge. Can they? Sure. They do *now* without extinction. And why incarnate in a human body? There are plenty of "races" in the multiverse to incarnate as...souls aren't restricted to their "home plane" so to speak. Angels and other energetic beings are "proof" of that.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:I believe that the human body is the most advanced container on earth and that the most powerful beings would choose them as their avatars.

I'm gonna say ditto Miniar on this one.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:There must be soooo many planets out there with alien life.

Don't forget about the rest of the multiverse. Our plane is but one of a crap ton.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:I think there are "streams" leading from "the void" (the birthplace of all souls) to each and every planet.

I dunno about this "void" you speak of (perhaps you could elaborate), but I wasn't "made" there and I haven't heard of anyone before really talking about one single birthplace of all souls.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:Above you read that souls cant be destroyed, so what if a planet get destroyed? I believe the souls will join other streams and get spread across the universe.
There must be so many alien otherkin that may not know what they are...

What if a planet gets destroyed? Are we talking in this plane of existance? Species go extinct, planets and worlds "die" and are created all the time. Souls incarnate across planets and planes of existance constantly with those planes and planets still existing, so I'm not quite sure why you think a species has to be extinct or a planet has to go poof in order for souls to go to new planes...

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:I believe that the astral plane may be the source to most otherkin on earth.
Maybe they choosed to come here and incarnate in order to live a physical life and...do the things we do here on Earth.

Most 'kin I know didn't choose what they incarnated as. Hell, some didn't choose to incarnate in the first place (myself included). There are plenty of physical races on earth and other planes that are far more exciting than humanity.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:Angels may be souls created by the first one to protect earth on the metaphysical plane and incarnate in order to help people in need.

Why do you think angels are concerned solely with earth? I can't say I've met many angels/angelkin whose purpose it is/was to protect earth via the physical or metaphysical. I also haven't come across many who are concerned with helping people in need. I don't know what you think angels are, but I assure you they aren't all bunny rabbits and rainbows.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:Vampires may be souls with an malfunctioning energy-generation and cant supply him/herself and have to drain energy from others.
A vampire may be a human with energy problems, but also an very powerful entity who need energy in order to sustain its own existence.

There is a difference between a vampire and something that is vampiric. A vampire requires external energy to sustain itself. Thus, vampires are actually quite weak and codependent and most don't consider themselves otherkin at all (that is if they're vampires and nothing else 'kin wise). Different vampires have different explanations for their energetic needs...the most common one I've come across being auric or chakra damage.

A powerful entity that is a vampire is something of an oxymoron, therefore. Can powerful entities be vampiric in nature, consuming external energies? Of course, but if they truly are "powerful" they take in extra energy for a booster, not because they need it.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:There may be many types of energy parasites roaming around like insects on the metaphysical plane and since it drain energy you have to also drain energy to feed the parasite and to fuel your subtle body.

Or you can kick the parasite's insectoid ass and send it packing. Having some kind of parasite attached to you doesn't exactly make you a vampire as your need for energy wouldn't be an inherent condition but one created by said parasite which would be entirely removable.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:Since the veil (the barrier thingy separating the physical and metaphysical) is getting thinner and maybe thats why there are so many otherkin popping up and maybe thats why there are so many vampires (energy parasite victims).

Ditto Miniar here too.

I wouldn't say it's a wild theory...just an underinformed one lacking a good number of external viewpoints. It's definitely a rough draft.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:3. I havent seen a bull on the moon, a mouse scuba diving or a dog talking with a cat.
Humans ARE smarter than animals, our (all actually...) brains are awesome and thats proven.

I don't see humans with horns, humans fitting through tiny spaces and not needing winter coats, and how do you know that dogs and cats can't understand each other (and why do you think they understand us for that matter)? I don't see humans diving without SCUBA equipment and they cannot dive as deep as a sperm whale without the aid of technology. I don't see humans jumping over 20 feet from a crouched position, outrunning a cheetah, holding our breath as long as any marine mammal, etc etc.

There's plenty that humans cannot do that animals can, is the point. Humans have the most evolved brain. Does that mean we're smarter than animals? Not necessarily. Without opposable thumbs, we'd be screwed <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue --> In all honestly, though (and you said it yourself), brains are awesome and just about everything on the planet has one.

Re: Otherkin Origin Theory
I don't usually play the line quote game, but I'm bored so here goes.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:I believe that a butterfly, as example, cant reincarnate as a tiger.

Why not? According to Hinduism anything is fair game on earth and off of it. Have you heard the story about the monk who dreamed he was a butterfly, and when he woke up wondered if he was a man dreaming that he was a butterfly or a butterfly dreaming he was a man?

Quote:Nor do I believe that souls can be destroyed.

Well, maybe the energy can't be destroyed, but you can sure as heck alter or even dissipate the patterns that the energy holds. If a pattern is destroyed and reemerges somewhere else, is it really the same pattern? That's one for the navel gazers to decide. Some would say yes and some would say no. They're both right.

Quote:If you would kill every animal of a specie the souls would, in theory, merge and become a more major soul.
As example...if you would kill every tiger of a specie the souls would merge and become...several major soul that would reincarnate in a human body.

But every tiger is not dead and yet we have tiger therians living now. Or are you just saying that multiple tiger souls might merge into one entity which might then decide to become human? I guess it could happen. If you were a multiple of the same thing, would you notice?

Quote:I believe that the human body is the most advanced container on earth and that the most powerful beings would choose them as their avatars.

Only if they needed to do human things. Humans are soo self-centered, not to mention noisy. I could easily see myself taking a spin as a hawk just to unwind. Humans may be the most advanced intellectually, but might not be the most spiritually advanced. A lot of meditative practices are designed to get our noisy wetware to shut the heck up. Maybe another animal can access the divine naturally without all the contortions we have to go through. The Hindus seem to like cows for this for some reason and actually put cows further up on the spiritual evolutionary scale. You can agree with them or not, just a different point of view.

Quote:I think there are "streams" leading from "the void" (the birthplace of all souls) to each and every planet.

I thought the whole point of the void was that there was nothing in it. Maybe we're not talking about the same one. How did the souls get in there? How were they formed? Where's the energy source that produces them?

Hmmm...running out of steam, maybe I'll get back to this.

This statement is so hugely anthropocentric that I did a double take when I read it. I recoil at such an idea and other exalted notions of human importance.

Interesting ideas. But personally (that's a big personally too) I think any workable theory on Otherkin should be like science, neutral in regards religions, gods, souls or any other currently unverifiable experience/theory.

So what is it about the extinction of a species that allows the souls to suddenly cross this species barrier? Are you working on the thoery that the souls get 'bottled' together and eventually merge if there are no bodies for them to be born in? And then that these somehow merged souls can then force themselves into across the aforementioned species barrier to be reborn? And how then do you account for therians who claim species that are not extinct? It may jsut be your theory but we would suggest that if you don't or can't answer that you might want to rework the theory.....

Ok. I do not get how requiring something to sustain oneself from an outside source makes one weak. That covers pretty much everything that lives on this planet so far as I know. Of course it could mean that all life forms on this planet are actually weak.....

Re: Otherkin Origin Theory
I've only read the OP. I'll read the rest of the posts after I've posted this, and edit my post if I feel the necessity.

Laiko Su Katara Wrote:I believe that a butterfly, as example, cant reincarnate as a tiger.

I suppose you believe in reincarnation, then?

Am I correct to assume that you view therianthropy as a reincarnation side-effect? If so, then why can that butterfly reincarnate as a human, but not as a tiger? What's wrong with the tiger? If I'd spent one lifetime being something like a butterfly, I'd love to try something furry and four-legged with kick-ass stripes.

Quote:Nor do I believe that souls can be destroyed.

Define "soul", and tell me why it's so strong.

Quote:If you would kill every animal of a specie the souls would, in theory, merge and become a more major soul.
As example...if you would kill every tiger of a specie the souls would merge and become...several major soul that would reincarnate in a human body.

This reads (to me) that one cannot become a korat therianthrope through reincarnation because korat cats still exist, and are not extinct. I may have misunderstood this, and I get the feeling that I have. Can you please re-word it?

Quote:I believe that the human body is the most advanced container on earth and that the most powerful beings would choose them as their avatars.

I think that you need to define what you mean when you say "container". If I were to drop a boab from a twenty-story-high building, and drop a human body from the same building, I'd be willing to bet you that the tree will sustain less damage. The human body is phenomenally weak compared to some other things on the earth that people view as capable of having a soul.

If I were a powerful being choosing something as my avatar, I'd not pick something capable of biologically attacking itself. I'd rather insert myself into a paperclip.

Quote:There must be soooo many planets out there with alien life.
And above that we have the Astral plane!

Now I really don't understand. An alien can reincarnate on earth, but a butterfly cannot reincarnate as a tiger? What is the significance of the astral plane concerning your post? You're mentioning it, and then leaping straight into something else until a later point in your post, which is confusing.

Quote:I think there are "streams" leading from "the void" (the birthplace of all souls) to each and every planet.

Isn't the point of a void location a location with nothing? Thus being void? Maybe I'm wrong. If I am, please correct me. If I have a soul, my mother gave birth to it. Not a void. What are these streams? Why do you believe in this void, and why do you think that it has significance relating to Otherkin?

Quote:Above you read that souls cant be destroyed, so what if a planet get destroyed?

It creates a pretty splat in the sky, or it just plain vanishes with no pretty colours.

Quote:I believe the souls will join other streams and get spread across the universe.

This reminds me of the mindstream concept in Isobelle Carmody's Obernewtyn Chronicles. A favourite book series of mine. As a matter of fact, a lot of this business about souls being in voids and streams is striking quite a similar beat.

Quote:There must be so many alien otherkin that may not know what they are...

What makes you believe in aliens at all, let alone alien Otherkin? Why do you think that they won't have made their own assumptions about alien life and Otherkin, just as you have?

Quote:Since the veil (the barrier thingy separating the physical and metaphysical) is getting thinner and maybe thats why there are so many otherkin popping up and maybe thats why there are so many vampires (energy parasite victims).

Now you've mentioned a veil and a void without describing what they are beyond a small definition in brackets. Can you please provide a proper definition of what these things are in your opinion? Telling me "a place where souls are born" or a "barrier thingie" isn't giving me much information.

Thanks, comrades.
You have given me many new things to think about.

That is correct, in my point of view its a space between spaces that is completly empty except for the souls waiting to re/incarnate.

Just because you are so able to move in a paperclip. Tongue

Look here, this is why I think humans have the most advanced body.

For me...a body is a container (Souls=Software, Body=Hardware).

A human body can go anywhere and do much more things than a animal body with the help of some technology.

MOST (NOT all) animals are a pack with instincts and not really much sentient thinking.
Humans have instincts too, but they are able to control themself at an another level.



Quote:This reads (to me) that one cannot become a korat therianthrope through reincarnation because korat cats still exist, and are not extinct. I may have misunderstood this, and I get the feeling that I have. Can you please re-word it?

They dont HAVE to die in order to merge into a new soul.
The whole theriantrophy concept is confusing for me and require me to think on a new level.

You're mentioning it, and then leaping straight into something else until a later point in your post, which is confusing.

I believe that there are streams from the void thats designated for every planet with life.
The streams work like a barrier and if the soul dont change stream on its own it will automatically reincarnate on the same planet.

For me...bugs are like machines.
I like to watch them, see how every one of them work.

They seem to lack will, only working until they die.
That is not a life I would choose, its labor ffs.
If they were sentient that would be pure slavery, dont you think the system gave them non-sentient souls?

Now...send this non-sentient soul to a human body.
I dont believe that would happen, their souls are just as important as every other soul.

I believe there are many different type of souls out there.

Quote:What makes you believe in aliens at all, let alone alien Otherkin? Why do you think that they won't have made their own assumptions about alien life and Otherkin, just as you have?

I believe in alien life.
Look at the size of the universe, think about the billions stars and all the planets out there.

I believe that souls of the sentient kind can evolve and become more and more complex.
An alien entity may come to earth for various reasons (free will, lost, homeworld destroyed) and take the most fitting body.

Can you please provide a proper definition of what these things are in your opinion? Telling me "a place where souls are born" or a "barrier thingie" isn't giving me much information.

The veil is not really part of "my beliefs".
Google it for a good description.

The void is, in my beliefs, the birthplace of souls.
Its a space between spaces and there is nothing material in it, thats why I call it the void.

I picture it like a gigantic reverted maelstorm that send energy which will later form into empty souls (not yet programmed souls).

However, souls can be created by various other means and not everyone have to come from the void.

There are streams connected to the void that guide souls to worlds where they will incarnate, when a being dies the soul will be kept (if the soul dont change stream manually...).


Quote:So what is it about the extinction of a species that allows the souls to suddenly cross this species barrier? Are you working on the thoery that the souls get 'bottled' together and eventually merge if there are no bodies for them to be born in? And then that these somehow merged souls can then force themselves into across the aforementioned species barrier to be reborn? And how then do you account for therians who claim species that are not extinct? It may jsut be your theory but we would suggest that if you don't or can't answer that you might want to rework the theory.....

Yes, I do believe that in this theory.
As I mentioned above, theriantrophy force me to think in new circles.

And I rework the theory for every post I read here in order to get a broader view.

Quote:There is a difference between a vampire and something that is vampiric. A vampire requires external energy to sustain itself. Thus, vampires are actually quite weak and codependent and most don't consider themselves otherkin at all (that is if they're vampires and nothing else 'kin wise). Different vampires have different explanations for their energetic needs...the most common one I've come across being auric or chakra damage.

A powerful entity that is a vampire is something of an oxymoron, therefore. Can powerful entities be vampiric in nature, consuming external energies? Of course, but if they truly are "powerful" they take in extra energy for a booster, not because they need it.

Nice way to put it, Seraphyna. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->


Quote:This statement is so hugely anthropocentric that I did a double take when I read it. I recoil at such an idea and other exalted notions of human importance.

Interesting ideas. But personally (that's a big personally too) I think any workable theory on Otherkin should be like science, neutral in regards religions, gods, souls or any other currently unverifiable experience/theory.


To be honest...iam really not a humie lover.

I love the universe, I love the system.
Its like a gigantic clockwork with a sick amount of gears.

Iam ready to fight several humans with words and fists to protect a creature of nature.

Dont take me for a human lover or human hater, I believe anything and anyone have a role to play.




@Motley. (the copy, paste, quote start to get boring.)

I dont believe in the hinduism reincarnation theory, it contradict my own beliefs. >.<
--------------------------------
Uhm, about souls.
I have to work more on that theory.
--------------------------------
I know a tiger theiran who is my absolute closest otherkin friend.
He was born the same day as the Javian tigers died out and identified himself with them.

He made me form the merge theory.

As said twice, theriantrophy confuse me and I need some mental changes.
--------------------------------
Look above, iam NOT a humie lover! >.>
I formed a theory similar to yours while thinking at the breakfast table.

A animal have a short lifespan, but maybe its worth it in order to fly or swim freely.
Like a vacation. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
--------------------------------
