Casting Instructions for 'Incarnation Mutations'
I've been in the nonhuman community a VERY long time. Longer than most I would believe, and with many disputes rising about being born nonhuman or it being purely spiritual have me in confusion and theorizing about the truth of the matter.
On the side of being born nonhuman, there lies many plot holes and inconsistencies. If you were born a werewolf, then that means your parents would also have to be werewolves, your grandparents, and so on. It would be traceable all the way back to the first werewolf. If it is dominant, then everyone in your family would be a werewolf. If it is recessive, then everyone would have to carry the gene or gene sets. This is a problem, mostly due to how rare even werewolves are, and how if so many people carried it or were werewolves for it to have to "spread", then werewolves would not be rare. Werewolves would be everywhere and everyone would know about them. There is no way a gene expression could go unnoticed throughout history for everyone in one family to be a wolf or wolf carrier and you to be the only "born shifter". Therefore shifting must not be an inherited trait.
On the spiritual side, there are also many inconsistencies. If spirituality is the only key to physically shifting, then why can't everyone who is nonhuman in soul shift? How come the majority of people who attempt to shift fail, despite being mermaid incarnates or wolf therians? Why are so many people able to mentally and phantom shift, but physically they cannot? You could argue they just don't try, but I have met plenty of otherkin and therians who have tried p shifting for years, but they cannot do it. Therefore, shifting must not be a purely spiritual phenomenon either.
I have come up with an answer that appeases both fronts and makes the most sense out of any theory. I call it Incarnation Mutations.
In this theory, I like to say "If you are meant to be it, you already are it". This may seem confusing, however it makes a lot of sense. If you are meant to be a dragon in this life, then you already are a dragon in this life. If you are meant to be a wolf shifter in this life, then no matter your parents or your heritage, you are already a wolf shifter.
Expanding upon this, i believe that due to fate and destiny, because you are meant to be (insert species here) then your soul mutates your genes and phenotype upon incarnation, bypassing the need for your parents to all be shifters. If you were sent here to be a dragon, then your purpose has mutated your body to be one, regardless of what it had to overcome.
This theory appeases the genetic argument because yes, if your mom was meant to be a wolf and your dad was meant to be a wolf, then you would be a wolf from genetics. But it is also spiritual, because your soul and destiny have influenced your body upon incarnation.
