I have tried to keep my mouth shut about this subject for a while. I just can't understand how the belief in a separate group of "Shadow People"
has come to be so prevalent in paranormal beliefs and studies these days. First of all, there isn't a genre of paranormal being on this site that can
be more easily fabricated in the form of photos and videos. In the days were anyone can photoshop and manipulate videos easily at home; I would say
that making a non-descript humanoid shadow type person would probably be one of the easiest thing to manufacture.
Furthermore, I have read much on this issue since up until recently I hadn't even heard of these vapory beings. The first time I heard about
shadow people was someone claiming to see them stalking her through her house while on a large dose of diphenhydramine which is known for it's rather
vivid and frightening hallucinations. So there's is the first nail in the coffin. Also, if they do in fact exist, I believe at the very least they
are being misclassified. There are many generally accepted forms of supernatural beings. We have ghosts, demons, simple psychic residue from deceased
people, and plenty of other things to choose without labeling them as an unclassified humanoid type race that is fading back and forth between another
random dimension without light. Especially since they tend to be associated with the occult and dark practices, why wouldn't they been seen as evil
spirits, or demons, as opposed to consciously evil, alive entities. It just seems that we are delving even further into the realm of the
superstitious than necessary. Coupled with the feeling of impending doom associated with these critters, why wouldn't the more religious types that
frequent this site view them as an incarnation of the angel of death or some parallel?
On top of all this somehow they are being pointed at for being in cahoots with the greys and the reptilians or whatever ill willed entities we
have in our collective unconscious. I do believe in a wide array of things involving UFO's and alien abductions, etc. However, I find it to be a bit
of a stretch that these preternatural beings are suddenly aiding EBE's in the terrorization of the general public. Much like the UFO phenomenon 98%
of the Shadow people phenomenon can be attributed to mis-interpretation, tricks of light, hypnogogia, etc. Not to say the other 2% didn't have some
type of real experience, I'm just saying it wasn't vague vapid boogeymen people make them out to be. Just a thought, all discussion and sensible
debate regarding this topic is more than welcome. Be polite and I'm sure this can be at least slightly enlightening to many, maybe even me.
