Koobecaf Connections By: Cassie Brown
Koobecaf ConnectionsThe Koobecaf culture is characterized by a group that has vastly spread throughout the entire world in the last four years. Many people today are discovering the various mysterious about the Koobecaf culture, but questions still remain about why the culture and its beliefs are becoming so prevalent. Also, what is so fascinating about the rituals the culture performs daily? The foundation of the culture’s beliefs and values are organized around the system of human interaction. Some humans have a need to be connected with others, and the Koobecaf culture fulfils the needs of those who have this desire. It allows them to do this by observation and communication. Being connected with others has a sense of comfort and, for some, it is hard to actually live outside the culture and face other cultures and to keep an open mind; however, having this connection sometimes interferes with personal privacy. The culture does not really practice great privacy, but it is still valued and controlled; a participant of Koobecaf will put much thought into the privacy he or she might have within the culture. This carries true for all members of the culture.
The first aspect of the Koobecaf culture is the ritual that happens every time one enters him or her self into the mystifying culture. There is at all times in the society a code name and a secret password. These code names are the Koobecaf’s identities and there is not one that is similar. However, if one was to uncover this sacred password they believe a curse will eventually follow. The curse would cause the people of the Koobecaf culture to lose their identity and become corrupted only because one might be impersonating them and giving false accusations to their own identity. To the Koobecaf having their identity stolen is a fear of theirs, for they might lose their individuality. The important aspect to remember is to keep control of the password and guard it with one’s life. The passwords are sacred to the culture and are to be kept private, but the code names in the culture are unique to ones self and represent ones individuality.
A daily ritual performed by the Koobecafs includes expressing themselves by little messages that are written down on their own egap. These messages are visible to everyone in the deefswen, which is where the messages appear immediately after being written. The Koobecafs then can comment on these egaps and then convey their own thoughts and feelings for everyone to see. They feel a sense of satisfaction when uttering their own thoughts to the world because they know the attention they receive when the messages are revealed. However, if someone wants to communicate in secret code, there is a special box where his or her messages are taken after writing. The thoughts are then hidden from everyone except those who are communicating in confidentiality.
I also discovered that the culture’s beliefs and values are centered around relationships: family, friends, and significant others; everything is connected. It is significant for the Koobecafs to have their relationships defined on the egaps. This unique aspect of the culture proclaims that they have the freedom to choose a life partner. The visible definition is important because it reflects their level of commitment, avoiding confusion in other potential relationships. It seems to me that relationships are extremely important to the Koobecaf culture and their number of friends are becoming greater everyday. So, maybe that is why they perform these daily rituals and have the foundation of the cultures belief of human interaction.
In conclusion, after observing this unique way of life I’ve discovered that the Koobecaf culture is reaching out to people all over the world. They have found a remarkable way to make an immense connection between all humans. However, some of their views are contradictory, which is the most confusing to me. They want to feel connected with people over the egaps, but some do not have the desire to extend the relationship outside of the Koobecaf culture. Their rituals of expressing themselves allows them to stay true to who they are, but still permit them to see how other people are expressing themselves and what they partake in from day to day.
