Isn't silver supposed to effect werewolves not vampires? Perhaps it's both, but either way, I think that those are literary additions and should be taken with a pinch of salt. There are a great many superstitions surrounding mining in general for the obvious reason that it has always been very dangerous work, potentially. There are even more when it is metallic ores being mined because of the ancient belief that metals were considered to be the body of a fallen god, or the off-spring. Those beliefs extend to metal working too. From extraction to finished product, sacredness was integrated into the process. During the 19th century when folkloreists began systematically collecting stories, it was usual for coal mines to have been founded due to the revelations of a white haired man, perhaps Time himself. Inthe classical world Nereids similarly appeared as guides. It was the Greeks I think that 'firmed' up the anthropomorphization of the natural world, and started dictating that everything must have a humanoid form. The uglier that form, the closer it was to the underworld; beauty came from above, but wisdom from below.

There might be some truth to wearing amulets especially metal ones but I guess Iron is the real kryptonite of sorts. A Crucifix made of Iron to be extra sure.


To Corroborate things further check out the video of Hudson Valley, more precisely you can start at 19:20 and 19:30 is dead on target !

Iron (and it's ores) has a sacredness all it's own, quite seperate and distinct from all the other metals. Our relationship with it goes back about 300,000 years and from at least 100,000 years ago we were not only mining it but transforming its properties with fire and processing it into a number of utilitarian products including the pigments that we painted the caves, and ourselves, with. It was only about 4000 years ago that we discovered that we could extract metal from the ores, and that secret was closely guarded for several lifetimes before the cat was let out of the bag. Before that, it appears that the 'new' metal was assumed to be 'metal from the sky' or 'star metal' from iron meteorites. This iron was widely associated with both shaman-hood and later priest-hood and kingship - almost exclusively. It came from heaven afterall. Around the third millennia, iron was more valueable than gold both because of it's sacredness (body of the sky god) and because of it's rarity. That it's use was initally limited to 'magical' personage only increased that 'specialiness'. Beyond that, I don't think amulets do much more than create a psychological comfort or protection, but I could be wrong, however it all seems to rely on what we believe in rather than any demonstrable effect.

Iron ores themselves are pretty well dispersed and abundant. If that alone provided an answer I think we would have been able to quite easily demonstrate that by now. It could be a factor though but as could any number of things. Open cast mines and large structures in otherwise well vegetated areas can act as heat sinks which, at night, can create microclimates. Depending upon the temperature and humidity differentials, such conditions can create heat plumes that micro-organisms, as well as their predators, can utilise to rise high into the atmosphere. They can also create conditions, particularly in areas sheltered by cliffs and mountains, suitable for rare light phenomenon. Aditionally, there is the possibility that Telluric currents play a role. The Hudson Valley seems to offer the potential for a number of possible 'natural' explanations. And, I shouldn't forget, gases escaping from old mines or fissures, which ties into the 'dangerous' things that might not be visible but may stir some deep seated recognition in our brains that makes such a danger visible so we can be guided away.

Lots of options to play with.

Also some tales of indigenous Alaskan Indians in the vid below describing little people who live underground (or inside mountains).

Well said mate and it really is pretty freaky how globes (or orbs) of light do seem inextricably connected to pretty much every aspect of the 'paranormal' - fascinating stuff.

I think stuff like this is the future of anomalous phenomena research—seeing the connections between seemingly different types of paranormal events.

I have a (quite speculative) theory that legitimate encounters with UFOs, bigfoot, the loch-ness monster and other cryptids, and all of the different strange encounters with fairies and gnomes throughout history are all part of the same phenomenon, interpreted and filtered differently by the individual and cultural framework of each witness.

One thing to remember is that our brains interpret reality in the same way that we see images in a Rorschach blot. We overlay conceptual frameworks onto our raw perception of reality—which would be meaningless to us without such concepts.

What would we perceive if we were to encounter some phenomenon which was so unexpected, so unlike anything in our previous experience, and so impossible based on our current understanding of reality, that there was no way for our brain to filter and interpret that perception in a reliable way? Perhaps we would see angels, gnomes, or aliens—whatever is filed under "the impossible Other" in our minds.

If this is true, perhaps Vallee was onto something when he began to study the ways in which UFOs seem to manipulate and interact with human society. We may not be able to unmask the Other, but we can learn about it by studying its actions.

Too right
Karl has brought in some excellent material to ATS over the years and puts things down in a very readable and enlightening way

Some very interesting speculation there bud and thanks for posting it - have been looking at high strangeness 'humanoid' cases within forests and looks like there's quite a few freaky ones out there.

Here's one example from September 4, 1964:

This case as described by Leonard Nimoy also has a few Faerie lore parallels including being disoriented in the woods, the Oz factor / missing time and being given strange pills to swallow..

Further ruminations from the Prof.





So, several years ago, stimulated by wonder and also the peculiar thought that some were pushing that my own favorite anomaly (UFOs) was "just" Faery in modern dress, I started that quest.
