  1. To be a member of any current, you must consider yourself a member of it. And its participants should consider you a participant. That is, the flow is a network of mutual recognition of each other by participants. So no, you can't be a member of a movement if you don't know about it.

  2. Catholic theologian Karl Rahner believed that there are essentially Christians who either do not know about the existence of Christianity, or they know, but reject it, and express their beliefs in a different language. He called them ” anonymous Christians.” However, this concept has been criticized by other theologians.

    In general, the status of a participant in a particular current is determined by the rules of this current. Somewhere it is enough to share the relevant ideas, where actions are needed, but ideas are unimportant, somewhere recognition from all other participants or some special authority is important, somewhere it is enough to consider yourself as such, etc. The options are infinitely diverse.

  3. If I understand correctly what you have veda under current, then Yes.

    If a person does not believe in God, then it is generally assumed that he is an atheist, but if it is science that defines dogmas for you, then you are a scientist. And it is not a fact that you have heard this word, because it is not popular. But at the same time, you can be a member of this trend.

    Or for example, let's say I don't like to understand politics at all, and I don't know the difference between the right and the left, but if I explain my position to someone who knows, then they can refer me to the right block.�

    Currents are not the acceptance of some principles and ideas, they are not a subculture, they are rather a characteristic of the principles, and if you conform, then you become part of the current.

    Ideological trends are sometimes determined after the phenomenon itself, through the analysis of history, for example.
