We all know that there are people who like to drink blood, people allergic to sunlight, people who prey on the energy of others, etc. This is not what
I intend to discuss here though.
I believe in the POSSIBILITY that true vampires may exist, in the mythical sense.
Err, lets start there. Are you looking for the truth or some pre-conceived notion of the truth? There are, to my likely incomplete, understanding a
few different classifications;
a) Humans who are labour under a psychological fetish or compulsion to "drink" blood *(I assure you, licking a few dribbles from some poor chick's
ark is NOT vampirism)
b) people who can work with energy and absorb from the world around them more effectively and intentionally than others, and while I don't think they
are purely human in the classical sense, they, IMHO are also NOT vampires. In some cases they may just be energy working humans, and sometimes it's
very likely that they're something else.
c) There are low-grade vampire-like types who do display weaknesses to not receiving blood in quantity but also don't have acute issues to sunlight,
don't have access to certain abilities (eg. mental/emotional manipulation, precognition, slow aging (so far), increased clotting, illness immunity),
and then, there's some like me:
d) An acute danger to sunlight, such as blistering in sensitive areas (lips, cheeks) and quick to burn. Slow aging, which is not something that can be
truly gauged until some years from now but I'm normally pegged at about 22-30 and I'm well beyond that. I don't get sick as long as I'm kept fed
with a good quantity of blood. If I go without blood for a long time, I can get ill, but it's always the same illness, a throat infection what seems
to be viral and lasts for days. Still, it takes that, and a loss of energy to get to that point and over time I've learned not to use up all my
energy when not able to feed.
To those sensitive to it, I exude a very strong "presence" and this reads as a certain kind of predatory "vibe". Some are intimidated and find me
difficult to be around (despite my generally friendly demeanour) and some are intensely drawn to me. I am convinced that most humans are able to
subconsciously get some clue to what I am, yet most don't or refuse to, accept whey they're experiencing. After all, the P.R. for "Vampires Don't
Exist" is pretty amazingly good.
I don't get some pseudo-sexual gratification from blood drinking so lets squelch that nonsense before it starts, in fact those humans that are
aroused by it, are a pain in the ass as they are the primary populace of the so-called "Vampire Community" (more on that in a bit) and it makes my
life more difficult they they exist and call themselves vampires.
As to blood drinking, I drink a large quantity in a sitting, I'd say a pint is a standard amount but a little less or a good bit more at times. This
can sustain my energy for about a week or so and at that point I'm operating at my peak. Do i die without it? heavens no, but then I think death
isn't just going to happen on it's own but we shall see. I don't get ill from blood, I don't suffer iron poisoning or constipation or black stool
(disgusting yes but you try drinking that much blood and see what happens...) or any of the other maladies that come with humans drinking large
quantities of undiluted human blood, several days in a row no less.
I believe (note specific word usage) that the blood is translated into energy, essence of life and it fills a deficiency I can not satisfy as humans
do, by simply recharging through food, rest, life, sunshine. There are lots of theories on the topic but one that is rather profound, is the concept
of the lack of a specific chakra. I didn't know if this was true but then i went to a reiki practitioner and asked her to read my chakras, and gave
her no knowledge of the notion that i may not have a chakra at my navel spot. I can tell you, the woman gave me the strangest look when she described
it, she said it felt like a, "sucking feeling, like a vortex", and told me she'd never felt that before. She said everything except my heart felt
normal. I didn't investigate further but perhaps in the future. So, take all that for what you will.
What I would like to do here is collect data on all of these different traits and package them into one creature, to see what traits are or are not
valid in defining a "true" Vampire.
Ha, you're going to have a hard time quantifying all traits into one type. Truth is, vampires are a diverse thing and yes, I suspect that there is a
"True Vampire" but you start waving that phrase around and all the little fakes and pretenders who are at the forefront of the "Vampire Community"
get a real stick up their ass. They take offense because, internally they know they're not very "real". They're playing a game that supports their
ego and their delusions are fed well and in some cases, they get turned on. Psychologically, they're no different than cross-dressers are to women.
Nothing more disturbing than fakes gaining such a strong footing that they convince the world that THEY are the real thing. There are not enough of us
TRUE vampires to form such a large community, or at least I've not met more than a couple like me, indicating our rarity and NONE as potent as I am.
That's a lonely feeling.
There are people who CHOOSE to drink blood, and creatures who NEED to drink fresh blood to survive. Does anyone have any evidence of a Human who
actually needs to drink blood, from a clinical perspective?
I don't believe that I am fully human, and I need blood to maintain a full existence and the only choice
is "Suffer" or "thrive". Perhaps
you expect a literal translation of films but while films are often totally fiction, most hold a surprising number of truths and are often allegory. I
can eat food but without blood I don't tolerate it well, but should I ever have the chance to live solely off blood, I'll let you know how that
goes. It requires some real human commitment from donors. For this to work, you're going to have to allow for science AND the metaphysical.
I will however say, that one of the "big guns" of the fakes and pretenders is "that's scientifically impossible" and a near rabid scientific
zealotry. Sure, I'd like to see some deeper understanding of myself through some repeatable science but, I won't expose myself to science because
it'll be so quickly dismissed and ignored, I'd be wasting my time and possibly setting myself up for public exposure. Note, I don't think any self
respecting true vampire is going to go on television talk shows, just attention seeking fakes. I have yet to see one like me in the public eye and
that's likely to continue. In fact, I am SURE that the OVC has it's eyes on this website and some PR types will show up and start decrying my
information as soon as they spot it, their reasons being either they're fakes offended by "True vampire" assertions, or they're a True Vampire
interested in applying misinformation tactics. Oh YES, we have that too. Can we turn a human into a vampire? yes. They have been covering that one up
for years and years and will continue to do so to the end that even most true vampires will not know they're capable and may accidentally do it.
