Pop Culture, God, and Fictionkin [Dec. 28th, 2008|10:25 am]
I've been thinking a lot lately about creation. Humans are in the position of both creating their own culture/pop culture and being creations of something else. While the world outside us tends to be considered the most important part of our existence by a lot of philosophers and such, we spend much more of our time thinking about the world we create, probably because we can contain it in our minds better. Science and psychology essentially make up what we can get about the world created by some form of outside entities. Philosophy and religion address our place in the universe too but do more to build new manmade constructs than to give an explanation of the natural world. Everything else we talk and think about, art and technology and civilization and everything they impact, are essentially our creations. Most philosophies and religions try to simultaneously make the world make sense and humble us about our place in it, but it's kind of hard to humble ourselves when we can look at ourselves "in God's image" forever without ever really thinking much about God.

Perhaps the otherkin/fictionkin theory that everything we create is in some way natural in another world fulfills the goals of both humbling us, making us realize our creations aren't entirely our own, and trying to apply the big picture to the pop culture we center our lives around.

Hello fellow 'kin.

To start off, my shell name is Ryan. I am a 18 year old Otakukin. To start..I have always felt connections to Haruka Tenou even before she was portrayed as an Anime character. When I was an 8 year old in 1994..I would run home from elementry school, to feel the wind against my ears. And as I grew to 12, when I started rping her. I started getting recongized for it..and as time went by I started noticing more me in her and her in me. And about a month ago my friend Raven (Who I haven't seen in a while now) saw my spirit who is truely Haruka Tenou. Me and Jenna are friends and we have talked astrally already..I hope to make many friends perhaps someone special, with time all good things come ^_^; Thank you for reading - Haruka Tenou/Ryan (Whichver you prefer)

Due to stupidity of idiots [And sceptics], the community otakukin got deleated due to harassment [or maybe they just got tired of drama from other people] It was my favorite community. But it got deleated. So I remade it into otakukiness Thusly will NOT be made fun of.

Yes it is a CLOSED community. YOU HAVE TO NOTIFY ME TO BE ADDED! I am almost on all the time, so thusly its a good thing I made this community. The other people who made otakukin had the entries accepted. I do no such thing. I think to accept entries, its just to stop people from getting too terribly offended. If you feel like talking about your past lives / memories / ect. Its fine with me. Im not going to close that option on people. BUT I DO HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE NO degrading posts about this community. I accept all beliefs, but HATE is not ACCEPTED in this community.

Thusly If you start dissing someone, I will not allow you posting rights. Thats the first offence. Second offence you get kicked from the community. [thats if I feel generous to give you you're posting rights back.] Yes Im strict, but its efficiant.

This community is about freedom of self expression

Not about telling other people where to shove it. I do not accept people being assholes. Thank you and have a nice day.
