1. As far as my ranking of the shadow types, or as to why I have labeled them as such... to me, they are seperate creatures, not just one type in
different shape. It is just an impression, a pshycic feeling.
2. What can they be? I don't follow the alien belief, in as far as that they are not visitors from outer space. Now, visitors from between
dimensions? That is something else. I think these shadow creatures exist in our world... probably elsewhere as well... that they are able to cross
over into our realm as we would into theirs (astral travel). Or maybe we (both humans and the shadows) merge into a threshold as we cross... it is
interesting for me, in noting that the times I see them is when I am in a near-sleep state.
3. I am going to have to recant when I said I first started seeing them in my early teen years. Knowing that people can, and do, repress memories,
but are affected by similiar events... I have, over this past weekend, realized that I have seen them much earlier in life.
Now, some might be normal child nightmare type events, but I always like to stretch things a bit...
I watched the Twilight Zone and Outer Limits growing up, and casn honestly say nothing on those shows bothered me (or else my parents would not have
allowed me to watch them, right?). However, the episodes that have always stuck in my head, that still, deep down do bother me, have been the ones
showing these... creatures made of smoke, or the frail doll like creatures that you saw nothing of, for they were behind a fog.
Another thing that made me cry and run (literally) was in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"; the scene being when the UFO opens up, and
you see these tall, thin, shadowy beings. NOT when you see the aliens, but just before they come out, when they are nothing but shadows.
4. Are they evil, or demonic in origin? For the most part, I'd say no. In my "levels", clearly types 2&3 are curious... seekers almost. Type 1
is... a pawn (after seeing this type, a "higher" will usually follow); the type 1 cannot do anything, it is almost as if it is checking things out.
Now, the type 4 (the large shapeless one) I think is more along the lines of a guardian type creature... mindless, but reminding you to dread
carefully. The type 5, however, is clearly "evil".
