Apparently stories about this phenomenon have been around for awhile. It reminds me of Amy Allen's description of an inter-dimensional life force
that plagues some unfortunate families, usually (it sounds like anyway) attached to specific areas of the earth. They apparently pray on children.
Don't know what their motivation is but Amy has said they "feed" on them. She's not sure what they are or where they come from but in her opinion,
they are not ghosts or otherwise "human" spirits. Very weird. What in Gods name could this be? Surely not a godly design so why?
Anyone have any more information or first hand experience? I personally do not and wouldn't what any. They sound absolutely horrifying.
The Slender Man (also known as Slenderman) is a fictional character that originated as an Internet meme created by Something Awful forums user
Eric Knudsen (a.k.a "Victor Surge") in 2009. It is depicted as resembling a thin, unnaturally tall man with a blank and usually featureless face,
wearing a black suit. The Slender Man is commonly said to stalk, abduct, or traumatize people, particularly children. The Slender Man is not tied
to any particular story, but appears in many disparate works of fiction, mostly composed online.
Slendermans creation can be traced to a singlular point in internet history. He is 100% fictional.
My daughter described a graphic dream, in which she said she was raped by slenderman.
Coming from a 10yr old, my heart sank. Reading your thread made my heart sink even further. I only clicked on it because I'd mentioned my daughters
openness and honesty about this dream to my mother only a few hrs ago.
Very strange synchronicity.
I'm kinda pissed now!
My initial reaction when she came out with it, well I was gutted and shocked. She was to young to be having those dreams surely? She was not distresed
and even mentioned feeling comfortable. I told my partner what she had just came out with and we put it down to her imagination(which is kind of
creative) and the slenderman game/app on iPad.
edit on 4-6-2014 by Wifibrains because: (no reason given)
Clyde Lewis did a show on slendy last night. He talked about dark archetypes and the possibility that slenderman has become a tulpa.
We all know about his origins on somethingawful but I think it goes back farther than that. I think the meme associated with the slenderman figure is
something ingrained on our collective unconscious.
How do you explain tales such as Der Grossman and other antiquated myths that are wholly similar to the slenderman. We have these YouTube
"slendervlogs" filled with bad acting, with the exception to Marble Hornets, yet we still have reports by genuinely terrified individuals regarding
the slenderman and his antics.
The “tall man” is generally depicted as an unusually tall (he can grow to different heights; capable of blending in with the trees of a
forest) and completely bald figure sporting a business suit with either a red or black tie. He has no eyes, nose, or ears, and has a very wide grin
running from one side of his face to the other (or no mouth at all). In some cases he is reported as having a hat, tentacles, or multiple limbs
sprouting from his back which he uses to ensnare his prey. What makes Der Großmann so fearful is that his existence is questionable. He may be
real…or he may not be. Perhaps the majority who have encountered the tall man have never lived to tell the tale. In fact, fear for slenderman may
actually manifest him into your reality-creating a bridge between fact and myth.
I love the fact that part of this being created was to target conspiracy sites and post hoaxed material on them to the degree to discredit many
paranormal topics in general.
And here we are on one of the largest conspiracy sites talking about these idiots that only wanted to damage the study of these topics and ultimately
lead to a murder.
Ironic at best.
I say let this one die for the greater good of things!
I cant believe those girls aged 12, killed a friend, and then blamed it on the slender man. supposedly one of the girls had read something on an
online forum, about the slender man. It just blows me away, that parents even let a child grow up, with such disregard for other humans. because
really that is what it comes down too, the fact that they didnt care about another human being.
Sadly, it seems, the more energy that is put into a fictional event, the more reality changes it's shape to fit that fiction into it's paradigm. In
other words, as the poster above said, the slender man has possibly become a tulpa, or a reality out of belief.
I don't think it's cool at all. It's sick and it only means more crap like this will happen...more basement dwelling keyboard warriors will try
their damnedest to concoct the next fantasy/reality bending internet meme to captivate the shallow, stupid, bored masses.
I don't actually recall having ever issued any sort of belief that slendy or Der Großmann were/are "real" but like the modern grey alien phenomena
are simply manifestations of certain thoughtforms within the human collective unconscious.
Is it real?
Hell, who knows. Just like the aliens, you just have to make up your own mind. Maybe one day good ol' slenderman will show and do a jig for $20.00...
Doesnt have anything to do with basement dwellers or the Internet. Fiction and tall tales have inspired people to action since the beginning of human
Fiction has always been a contested artifact. Way back at the writing of The Tale of the Heike people feared fiction being available to everyone would
be dangerous for society.
You can't stop people from imagining or creating.
Some people take it too far, sure. But are we really going to all commit ourselves to a national asylum just to prevent a few lunatics from acting out
once in a while? I'm not willing to throw away my life or liberty because some psycho acted out a fantasy.

What does it say about people or the world in 2014 that they can't or won't accept this as the total internet BS that it is?
It's just the logical extension of the seeming need to believe in the paranormal, as evidenced by countless threads on this message board. As we see
here, even if the origin of the story can be pinned down to the minute it was first posted on a forum, people still want to believe.
And people wonder why hoaxers and cranks thrive in today's world...
