I will start by saying that I don't know if this post belongs here or is better suited for /lounge/. I trust the mods will locate it accordingly.
Inspired by a song (https://yewtu.be/watch?v=sIXYPjIWPGY) of the musician Aphex Twin and a poem by Arthur O'Shaughnessy of which a few lines the electronic song echoes, I'm looking for a community of people who are somewhat removed from the current zeitgeist.
I'm looking for a community whose members are somewhat removed or to a certain degree unaware of the present (both online and offline) cultural atmosphere. People who don't keep up as much as possible with social media, news or popular imageboard culture. Such a community might be centered around a particular hobby or interest, but it's not really up to date to some cultural aspects concerning that hobby. People who barely found out yesterday that Trump was president, they might not have heard of TikTok, they don't know what a crab or a libtard is, that there is a war in Ukraine/Palestine, the interest rates or how large language models are going to take people's jobs. It's fine with me if something of the mainstream culture happened to reach the ears of some members of such a community, but all remains an abstraction. These people are so involved with their own lives, interests, passions and dreams they don't know what's going on in the world (online or offline). Living in the world is natural for them to be affected by some of the cultural changes, but they don't really engage with them on deeper levels (they might see the prices rising as a result of inflation, but don't read articles on what Jerome Powell has to say, they might not even know who the chairman of the Fed is).

This is the result of their seclusion, not because they are mentally retarded. They are coherent intelligent individuals, but they are just removed from the flow of culture to a considerably large degree.
Naturally, this sort of people or communities would be hard to reach, being somewhat off the grid (the Amish), but I'm looking for online communities. They could be religious in nature, I don't mind, but I'm looking more for people who are so focused, that culture just passed them by. They is no fear of missing out on anything, they already missed out a long time ago and they are not even aware of it. It doesn't matter to them and it doesn't bother them.

I'm asking here because wizchan is the closest to community that I know of and yet, I would argue that even here mainstream online culture sweeps discussions away at times, even hear the twitter screenshots find their way. So, I'm asking you wizzie:
Do you know of any such online communities?
Tell me where to find them. I'm looking for the music makers, I'm looking for the dreamers of dreams.

This isn't the place you are looking for.
Media consumption is a pretty popular hobby on this board, and most of the users also use several other imageboards.

We are a internet subculture, not isolated from internet culture. Some might be physically hermits but we ain't that far out of the loop as you seem to be seeking.

If you want community disconnected from internet culture maybe look outside of the internet.

I am the opposite of what you are looking for. I am completely engulfed by my depression, autism, and internal conflicts. I don't keep up with anything. I do not care about anything. I live in a completely isolated realm, created in my head. I am emotionally unstable and fucked and I bet money that I will start hating you in a month of conversation. People who are removed from life are never a good companion, like it or not. They may be intelligent (not my case), though, in rare cases. In most cases they're just tards. I'm a good example.

There's no such thing as a disconnected online community. You might start looking into 90's forums and the like. Autistic hobbyhorse interests and cool obsessions used to be the grist of wizardchan, that seems to have completely died at this point

"This is the result of their seclusion, not because they are mentally retarded"

but are they?

A community like this generally works, but you need to understand that it will eventually become a clique at some point. The only exception may be imageboards but those are dead.
