Religious Doctrine

The doctrine of the Octonity (from Latin octotas "eightfold") defines God as eight consubstantial persons, expressions, or hypostases: the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Matriarch, the Bodhisattva, the Force, the Dancing Goth, and the Pirate; "one God in eight persons". The eight persons are distinct, but also exist as one "substance, essence or nature". In this context, a "nature" is what one is, while a "person" is who one is.
