Fictionkin and The Origin of Fiction


My take on fictionkin is simple, but also controversial.

I feel that fiction-realities already exist. Authors are simply tapping into those realities via their imagination.

Now, I know many will balk at that, because it says that our imaginations aren’t our own. Well, technically, that’s true, if you believe you have an inner spirit or soul. I can’t speak for atheists and agnostics; they will believe science in place of my beliefs and that’s fine. This is my belief.

I consider myself a writer of fiction as well as non-fiction (blogs.) I have absolutely no problem with the idea that I’m channeling the stories of my characters from their universes. They want their story told and shared with my world, and I’m a messenger that can write it up for them. Their reality inspires me.

Now, I include the word inspire because of the etymology of it. The word ‘spirit’ is at its very core (Latin spirare.) In my beliefs, our imagination comes through Spirit (not necessarily “from” it.) We breathe our thoughts through it and find those worlds that are either just like or similar enough to our idea that we can latch on and tell their stories.

Some authors agree with that premise, and others don’t. I’m not trying to tell anyone this is the way to believe. That’s up to you. For me, and my belief in infinite universes and realities/realms, I’m just exploring it all and letting others see what I see. Fictionkin then get to re-experience their Home through me, and all other creators of “fiction.”

I’ve said this before, maybe here, maybe in one of the Otherkin discord servers, but I strictly avoid using the term “multiverse theory” because it was developed in a way that restricts the concept of infinite. I don’t agree with that, because I base the same concept on originating from a supreme consciousness. I see it as the kind of infinite that we cannot in any way imagine because the ‘mind’ of such a consciousness is beyond ours in every way. To quote the movie “Contact” and add my own:

“The universe is a pretty big place. It’s bigger than anything anyone has ever dreamed of before. So if it’s just us… seems like an awful waste of space.” If god/supreme-consciousness is truly infinite beyond our ability to comprehend, and this is the only universe, then it seems like an awful waste of infinity.
