(Repost since the site went down, since this is an older post some things may be outdated now.)
I follow science and logic as closely as I can, it's the only thing that keeps me grounded in a world that's rather confusing and daunting to try and navigate. However I wasn't raised on science, I grew up in a household that didn't impose any beliefs on me, leaving me to discover the world however I wished. As a child, I didn't know about religion until a few friends would bring up things such as 'hell' and 'heaven'. Confused and interested I asked them what it was, and the answer I got sounded exactly like the story books I read before going to bed, so I dismissed it and just carried on letting them believe whatever they wished. Heck, at the time I believed in dragons, though it turned out to be more of a desperate plea rather than something I could continue to believe in in a seance that they walked among us. (Though ironically if Dragonkin are to be counted, maybe I wasn't wrong.)
However, Otherkin for the most part seems to almost repel science theories and speculation. There's a number of very valid reasons for this, one being that it's simply an impossible thing to test or think about scientifically since it's beyond our abilities at present. Yet a lot of people's beliefs seem to be spiritual, in fact I'd say about 85% of the community from what I've seen tend to have at least 'some' spiritual beliefs. I myself can't bring myself to believe in such things, there's just nothing clear cut observable or able to be tested that can prove or disprove it, so I have to say I can't bring such a thing into my own beliefs.
The few who say their Otherkin is physiological still interest me, as I'm not 100% what is meant by this. On the whole it seems to share a portion of the structure that some trans* persons go through. A person is trans when their brain structure is saying one thing that does not coincide with their physical body, though unlike otherkin, there are tests and a fair amount of linkage to how this occurs during development.
I am trans myself, but for me, I would not put my otherkin experiences and beliefs alongside my trans experiences.
When I found out I was what society calls 'trans', my experiences were very 'core'. I knew 100% that I was not the gender label I had been given at birth, any attempts at trying to reassociate to it would just be met with a very loud 'no' internally. Being addressed as such would cause great depression, anger, outbursts and more. My gender however is somewhat fluid, so I had moments of doubting I was trans simply because now and then it would change to become more feminine, but not female. These experiences resonate with me incredibly strongly, there is no debate, no question, it's as fact as it is that I have hair on my head.
In comparison, when I found out about Otherkin I was incredibly sceptical. It's not possible for animal DNA to get forced into developing babies; humans do not carry the gene structure to be able to mess up and program the child's brain to be like that of an entire other species, it's impossible. It was also not a clear cut 'Yes this is what I am' like with my trans experience. It was something a lot more gradual, like I was becoming aware of something that was hidden from me. My experiences defy every rule I've had about following science to a T, it's broken me from a thought structure I never thought I'd leave.
There is however one similarity between them.
I discovered I was trans when I hit puberty, which is what brought the concept of gender to the forefront of my mind. Also how I discovered my otherkin-ness was the result of my mind going through a lot of changes due to mental stress, which brought it to my attention.
In this way, it's actually very similar, if not identical. I became aware of things related to the changes I was going through.
What I Know
This segment is mostly on the information I received about my connection to my kintype. As previously mentioned in previous posts, I essentially broke a wall to this information, it was created in a time of great mental stress, however what I was going through does not lineup to any mental illness, which is enough to allow me to lend an ear to what I was told. Essentially, I became aware of a voice, who always had the answers. Everything they've said has always been correct, and they were the one who told me my kintype. At the moment I'm starting to doubt them, but I haven't heard from them for a while, so I suppose that's natural.
Basically, I am being used as a vessel of information gathering. When I die however, I'm no longer sure of the result. I will either A. Be absorbed in my entirety back into the full conciousness, however this will in essence still erase who I am now as I will have a whole other mentality again and thus behave as I once did, just with more information or B. Have them essentially 'read' the information off of me and then discard the human element of me back into the void of death. A rather more bleak result, but understandable. Then of course there's C. I'm not connected at all and I'm crazy and just die like everyone else. Which to me actually sounds nicer than B, as B would essentially mean I am being overlooked, but not cared for, as I hold no value to them.
I must apologise though, I keep using 'them'. You see I am essentially split into many different parts, I say this with unyielding certainty. The main one is overlooking and communicating to 'me', my human mind. It's quite possible they're also learning through many other humans other than me, but I've had no information about such. They also have influenced my interactions and events happening around me. In other words, I am controlling myself and my own surroundings. The things that happen around me are decided by myself, however my reactions here on Earth to them is generally human, as that's how I am physically made up.
Here's an example. Imagine you're walking down a street and you see a penny on the ground, you're now presented with the choice to either pick it up, or leave it alone. This is what in essence the 'me' still in their original form is giving me to see how I will react to specific events. Of course this doesn't apply to every event, but most of the major ones are structured by them. Another example is if you're playing the sims and set their house on fire and then sit back and watch them respond. You may not care about the sim, even if to them you have a very strong valuable connection to their own life, being able to effect it so much, but you are using them to gather information about how they act. This is a sensation I've had for a very long time, way way before I even became aware of Otherkin and started questioning myself.
Now, if there are those who don't know much about my kintype I'd direct you to my other posts I've already made about such, here and here as well as reading over my profile.
Unlike most other kintypes, mine does lean quite heavily on scientific theories and information about the universe around us, which I shall now get into. A quick message before I do though; I am not claiming that these are 'proof' of my identity or anything of the sort, I am simply sharing information that for me grounds my beliefs in a way that I feel justifies my beliefs to myself. An example being that if you have shifts where your mind changes to fit an animal, this would be your way of justifying your belief you are that animal.
Leonardo Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician who popularized the decimal system. He is also known for the Fibonacci Series, a numerical series found frequently in the natural world. The Fibonacci Sequence is generated by adding the previous two numbers in the list together to form the next and so on (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55…). Divide any number in the Fibonacci Sequence by the one before it, for example 55/34, or 21/13, and the answer is always close to 1.61803. This is known as the Golden Ratio (Sectio Divina). One of the most profound and significant activities encompassed within Sacred Geometry and lLght Source is the 'Golden Mean Spiral’, derived by using the 'Golden Ratio’.
Many forms observed in nature can be related to geometry (for sound reasons of resource optimization). For example, the chambered nautilus grows at a constant rate and so its shell forms a logarithmic spiral to accommodate that growth without changing shape. Also, honeybees construct hexagonal cells to hold their honey. These and other correspondences are seen by believers in sacred geometry to be further proof of the cosmic significance of geometric forms.
Some scientists see such phenomena as the logical outcome of natural principles, however an experiment done at the UK.’s Oxford University, University of Bristol, and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and Germany’s Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin for Materials and Energy have discovered this pattern on a nanoscale. Researchers examined chains of linked magnetic cobalt niobate (CoNb2O6) particles only one particle wide to investigate the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. They applied a magnetic field at right angles to an aligned spin of the magnetic chains to introduce more quantum uncertainty. Following the changes in field direction, these small magnets started to magnetically resonate. Neutrons were fired at the cobalt niobate particles to detect the resonant notes. “We found a series (scale) of resonant notes: The first two notes show a perfect relationship with each other. Their frequencies (pitch) are in the ratio of 1.618 … which is the golden ratio famous from art and architecture,”
Whatever the case, geometry can be seen everywhere within our reality. Our Reality is structured in patterns, this is reflected though Nature in the form of Geometry. Geometry is the very basis of our Reality in this sense, hence we live in a coherent world possibly effected by relatively unknown laws.
Frequency & the Law of Vibration
In the year 1905, Albert Einstein proved that we can break matter down into smaller components and that, when we do, we move beyond the material realm and into a realm in which everything is energy. This is the Law of Vibration, a law of nature that states that ‘nothing rests; everything moves; every-thing vibrates.’ The lower the vibration, the slower the vibration; the higher the vibration the faster the vibration.
The difference between the manifestations of the physical, mental and emotional result simply from different levels of vibrating energy, or frequencies. So, while the feelings of fear, grief and despair vibrate at a very low frequency, the feelings of love, joy and gratitude vibrate much quicker.
The most common unit of measure for frequency is the Hertz, which is one vibrational cycle per second. So a frequency of 460 Hz means that there are 460 cycles of vibration occurring every single second. At the very leading edge of biophysics today, scientists are recognizing that the molecules in our bodies are actually controlled by these frequencies. In 1974, Dr. Colin W.F. McClare, Ph.D, an Oxford University Bio-Physicist, discovered that frequencies of vibrating energy are roughly one-hundred times more efficient in relaying information within a biological system than physical signals, such as hormones, neurotransmitters and other growth factors.
Although most frequencies exist outside of our normal range of perception, all can be perceived as both colors and sounds. There are seven colors in a rainbow and seven notes in the musical scale. So the color blue is also heard as the musical key of D, which vibrates at 587 Hz.
But what is most interesting is that, if a frequency is vibrating fast enough, it’s emitted as a color of Light. If we wanted to convert sound to Light, we would simply raise its frequency forty octaves. This results in a vibration in the trillions of cycles per second. So, if a pianist could press a key way above the eighty-eight keys that exist on a piano, that key would produce Light. They could create a chord of Light in the same way they can create a chord of sound. And it would be seen as colors of Light because it would be moving at the speed of Light.
The philosophical and scientific basis for this Law of Vibration can be found in quantum physics and in Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Energy is related to matter and the speed of Light. This is Einstein’s famous E = mc2 equation. When two frequenciesare brought together, the lower will always rise to meet the higher. This is the principle of resonance. So, when a piano is tuned, a tuning fork is struck, and then brought close to the piano string that carries that same musical tone. The string then raises its vibration automatically and attunes itself to the same rate at which the fork is vibrating.
Using this principal of resonance, we can actually increase the speed at which the molecules in our bodies vibrate. And the higher our consciousness is raised, the closer to energy we become.
This is a personal conclusion based on these pieces of information and my own experiences.
Theoretically, imagine if you will; a lifeform that has evolved in such a way that it can freely move between all forms of light and matter. I'm also going to say it's most likely in some way connected to the 5th dimension, be it having evolved there or what as it's abilities to be able to shift so easily would make more sense if developed in a dimension of constant movement. An example would be if a 3D character interacted with a 2D one, they'd be able to move in ways the 2D person would not be able to, or even be able to perceive. The ways the 3D person would interact could very much seem to be 'magic' as it's not observable for them.
In this sense, a creature from a higher dimension interacting with this one can logically do things that would be 'otherworldly' and only comprehensible through very complex mathematics, if even that.
However, this isn't a pass for the theory, the behaviour and result (me) still needs stronger ties to form a more water proof theory.
Considering this creature is around in this dimension, well, why would it come here? Well, lets get down a few facts first.
To be able to constantly change shape and form, one needs a lot of energy to do so, inconceivable amounts of energy in fact. For a lifeform to have developed something like this it would need to be self sustaining in a way that means it either does not ever run out of energy, or it takes energy from other sources such as stars, supernovas or dark energy; this of course excluding any possibilities from their own dimension.
This would in essence, make them immortal. I can't get into how they came to be in the first place, but the only thing I could come up with is that it was formed during a Big Bang like event in their own dimension. Really I can't know something like that, and I'll never claim to have a solid theory in this area.
Back to the question, why here? But to which I'd say, why not? If you can freely travel around space and have little to no concept of the flow of time, one would assume that you may want something to do while exploring this dimension. A different perspective, a way to experience 'living' in a way they're unfamiliar with. They can see the rules that bind this plane, and want to be able to experience what it's like to be bound by them. Essentially, if you play a game with the cheats on all the time, it gets boring, you'll want to make challenges for yourself, limit yourself intentionally to see what happens. I will say this is a human notion, but unfortunately they haven't given me any better logic for this element.
Okay, so there's no way to prove it's actually out there, but theoretically, it's existence is possible. It is possible to change between light and sound. There are patterns in everything around us that could act as a form of recipe to follow when changing between other forms. The universe is also incredibly vast, allowing for many different lifeforms to evolve. We also know very little about other dimensions and how they might work. All of this isn't evidence towards it, but essentially it shows that there's not anything dismissing it through the information we do have.
This combined with unexplainable experiences with voices, information that's so soundly structured the second I'm given it and hasn't had a single hic-up in attempting to decompile it, when I have deconstructed many crazy ideas and theories before is so far giving me logic enough to give it the benefit of the doubt. Until I get more information from this other 'me' or find a hole in the theory I have the belief I am connected to this being or if I am it, if but a shard.
