Subcultures

A subculture is a collection of experiences, expectations, ultimately communication strategies that grow up around a work or develop from other shared experiences. For example, some Star Wars fans have more in common than just having seen the movie - they have developed a subculture or community.

Mormon

Truth, restored. A tagline for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - and itself true. Jesus Christ is alive today, and like His Father, has a glorified and perfected body of flesh and bone. Him and His Father appeared to the young man Joseph Smith in early 1820 and commanded him not to join any then existing church, due to a great falling away that had occurred many centuries previously. Jesus Christ still speaks with and visits man today, and His spirit is felt by any good people the world over. Still, the Priesthood authority was lost during this apostasy (falling away), which neccesitated a restoration of these ancient privilages. This was restored by angels sent from the presence of God, and now is on the earth and frequently used by authorized and worthy priesthood holders throughout the world today. The Book of Mormon ("Mormon's Book", an ancient prophet) was translated by the gift and power of God, and the source records taken back into God's keeping. This is a book of true scripture, comparible to the Bible in its value to humanity. Men ordained and called to be prophets, seers and revelators walk the land, visiting and sustaining the Church. Miracles are real. I know, and I bear witness in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Dragon?

Don't know. It fits. Possibly a power/otherness touchstone. I've felt drawn to dragons since before I was 4, so it is a core feature of my personality. I know that my spirit has existed since long before earth life - basic Mormon doctrine - so this is probably a connection formed before my time on Earth.
