HEADCANNON THAT MICHAEL GETS SUPER HIGH AND HAS THE WEIRDEST SHIT COME OUT OF HIS MOUTH AND JEREMY LIVES FOR IT
i wish i could contribute to this but ive never been high in my life. i kinda just assume whatever weird shit any high person would say would be something akin to every word that comes out of my one friend’s mouth. a good example being
i just don't get why people believe they are animals/ plants, objects or even SPACE. could you explain? i don't want drama, i just simply don't understand
Hey, that’s okay. We know that the concept can appear pretty
strange to people who have no experience with anything similar.
Let’s take the spiritual side of things as an example first,
especially because there’s certain beliefs that are extremely prevalent in the
community. Many otherkin with spiritual beliefs believe in reincarnation, the
idea that a soul, or the essence of a person’s being, cannot truly die and
therefore it passes from one body to the next, forever, like any natural cycle.
Sometimes people believe there is an end goal to these reincarnations,
sometimes they believe it is just recycling. But they also don’t believe that
souls are limited to humans, and that all living beings have souls that can
enter into this cycle as well. With things like objects, plants, or space,
belief in animism can come into play here, which is defined as “the attribution
of a soul to plants, inanimate objects, and natural phenomena.”
Now, how does someone go from these kinds of beliefs to
believing they apply to their present state? Many people say that they
experience memories from those past lives, and that because of what their soul
has been in the past, its past experiences still have some bearing on who they
are now. How do they know these memories aren’t just imagination? Honestly, it’s
impossible to know for sure. Spiritual beliefs are based in faith. They have
experienced something, and their
interpretation of what they have experienced makes their belief. It doesn’t
matter whether you believe what they do, and science and faith are at an impasse
most of the time because these are personal, often abstract experiences
involving abstract concepts which cannot be documented and tested reliably.
However, people in the community are more than willing to accept a potential where
if science proves some belief wrong, they will have to find another way of
explaining the experiences that have happened to them. Stuff like reincarnation
isn’t the only spiritual belief present in the community, but I think it’s the
best suited to try and help you understand what’s going on spiritually for many
Spirituality is also not the only way people try and make
sense of their experiences. Another is through psychology. For otherkin who
base their explanations in psychology, they may not have spiritual beliefs at
all, or even if spiritual do not believe their nonhuman experiences are due to
a spiritual cause. Like spiritual otherkin, though, they have experienced something and are trying to interpret
it. They use what we know of psychology and apply it to their experiences.
Ideas out there include discrepancy between the mental body image and the
physical body (which may lead to phenomena such as supernumerary phantom
How do people with either of these explanations know they
aren’t just experiencing normal human psychological things? Honestly, we don’t.
There is a level of faith and interpretation in everything. We do not choose to
have these experiences, no, but we can only try and make sense of them in the ways
available to us. Many people have a combination of spiritual and psychological
beliefs, or sometimes do not have a full explanation but simply say “well, this
is what I feel and experience. who knows why.” We’re not sure. We can’t be sure. But life is a journey to
try and understand.
