There are a lot of humans on this planet who believe they’re “starseeds,” or aliens from another one, according to a new report in The Conversation. Spoiler: They’re not.
Still, that hasn’t stopped the trend from rapidly catching on. The Conversation reports that the hashtag #starseed is growing in popularity on the internet, including a massive rise on TikTok, now with over 1 billion views on content tied to the hashtag.
Starseeds believe they have “reawakened from another planet to be born here,” according to The Conversation. Of course, with that belief comes several other fantastical beliefs, such as starseeds’ conviction that they can transport between galaxies or communicate in “light languages.”
