System Origins are the way that a system, including subsystems, sidesystems, and anything similar, has formed.

This page is intended for systems who are attempting to figure out their origin, or to quickly learn about them. This offers a basic overview for various origins.

Mixed-Origin[edit | edit source]

It's completely possible for a system to be mixed-origin, meaning they have multiple origins. This is also sometimes called "multigenic" or "polygenic".

There are more specific labels for mixed-origins. Such as chaogenic, which refers to an overall chaotic origin. There is also pangenic, which refers to having all origins, within the systems experience.

Isoscegenic refers to a system with one primary origin, but a few system members who don't fit into that origin. Origin-flux is a system whose origin changed over time. Supragenic is a system who was altered by a traumatic event but is not originally traumagenic.

Traumagenic/Adaptive[edit | edit source]

Traumagenic refers to a system that formed from trauma. This is also called adaptive, but may include experiences that aren't entirely trauma. Extraumagenic is a used term for when the trauma which caused a system is unknown.

Neurotraumagenic refers to trauma caused by being neurodivergent, and is a mix of neurogenic and traumagenic.

Stressgenic can be included under such, and includes systems formed from stressful situations that might not be traumatizing.

Parotraumagenic is a system intentionally created to deal with trauma.

Exotraumagenic refers to a system which formed from exotrauma, which is trauma that occurred outside of the body, often for metaphysical reasons. Intratraumagenic refers to a system which formed from trauma from within the system.

Araisagenic is an uncommon term to refer to a system formed from escapism specifically.

Solumgenic is a system formed from loneliness.

Endogenic[edit | edit source]

Endogenic is an umbrella term for an origin which involves something other than trauma. Some systems may identify as endogenic and nothing else. Most terms under this in the list count as endogenic.

Spontaneous and nihilumgenic refer to a system which came out of nowhere.

Innate or Protogenic is a system which was formed from birth.

Neurogenic[edit | edit source]

Neurogenic refers to system members who were created for neurological reasons.

A system which formed because of maladaptive daydreaming disorder, immersive daydreaming, or neuronarrating is Paragenic, a MaDD system, ID system, veritbond system, or dreamway system.

A system caused by psychosis is called psygenic, and a system caused by delusions is deligenic.

Neurotraumagenic refers to trauma caused by being neurodivergent, and is a mix of neurogenic and traumagenic.

Thoughtform/Created[edit | edit source]

Systems can be intentionally created, this experience is also called thoughtforms. This is more likely to be a specific subculture though rather than a specific origin, but some systems use created, thoughtform, or parogenic.

One such is tulpamancy, which refers to a fully autonomous and separated created headmate created by a host, called a tulpamancer.

Another is daemonism, which involve a representation (or representations) of one's inner consciousness, soul, or internal dialogue. This is often in the form of an animal.

Parotraumagenic is a system intentionally created to deal with trauma.

Archogenic can also be used if the system feels like their system was created in a more artistic way.

O-System, a system of headmates who started as OCs, may be similar to this. So is Primagenic, a system centered around an original universe.

An unintentional created system is called catharigenic. This doesn't have any connection to tulpamancy. Some systems in the tulpamancy community may also refer to these as walk-ins.

Willogenic is a term referring to an intentionally created system. This doesn't have any connection to tulpamancy.

Metaphysical/Spiritual[edit | edit source]

Some systems may form because of metaphysical or spiritual reasons. Some may call this metagenic, spirigenic, or aethergenic, while others just prefer spiritual or metaphysical.

This also includes soulbonding, which involves a fictional entity appearing in one's headspace. This is usually spiritual, but may be psychological as well.

Walk-ins, headmates which seem to come in from another location, also usually fit under this. These can also count as gateway systems. Pariogenic is a term for a system full of them.

There are also origins which involves souls. Psychegenic refers to a system caused by being multiple souls in one body, seelegenic refers to a system with an origin caused by a soul splitting into parts.

Exotraumagenic refers to a system which formed from exotrauma, which is trauma that occured outside of the body, often for metaphysical reasons.

Cosmogenic is also metaphysical, referring to coming from the stars.

"I Don't Know"[edit | edit source]

There are many different origins which can refer to an unknown origin, including unknown and quoigenic.

Other terms include agenic. cryptogenic, praesigenic, and voidgenic.

Congenic is a term which refers to a system with complicated origins specifically.

Other[edit | edit source]

Origins we have no idea where else to categorize.

Iatrogenic refers to a system created by being convinced they are a system when they're not or a system created through therapy. Pseudogenic is similar with being a system formed from lies.

A kin system is a system where members form from kintypes.

Dreagenic is where dreams are affected by plurality.

Mogaigenic is when being MOGAI affects your system.

Xeno-origin[edit | edit source]

Xeno-origin refers to origins that are more lesser known, and usually more personal and specific. These usually can fit into some of the other categories as microlabels.
