Re: Real Vampires
UglyNRude Wrote:The following section represents the various categories that relate to the modern classification of vampires as defined by feeding method. Terminology is haphazard and problematic within the Community, and the attempt is made below to acknowledge alternative spellings, and identify distinctions (some of which are controversial) which are made by some Community members.

The most common and universal distinction made within the Vampire Community is the distinction, based on feeding method, between Sanguinarian and Psi Vampires.

Sanguine Vampires (Sanguinarian) feed by the drinking of blood - either human or animal. Sanguinarian vampires can vary in their experience of blood hunger and in how often or in what quantities they need to feed, but the unique craving for blood and the physical symptoms associated with neglecting to drink blood are unifying features of sanguinarian vampirism. This term is commonly shortened to sang. Not all members of the Community actually acknowledge the difference between psychic and sanguinarian vampirism, and there is a popular but not universally-held theory within the Community that the life force energy or “prana” contained within the blood is the source from which they feed, rather than any physical component of the blood itself. This theory is supported by the notably small amount of blood that vampires consume to alleviate their hunger, but challenged by the fact that vampires who consider themselves primarily blood drinkers often do not display as many or any of the psychic tendencies that psychic vampires do, and more often report more physical symptoms, such as sense acuity and physical strength, than do the psychic vampires.

Psi Vampires are understood to feed psychically on life force energy. Psi (or psy) feeding is usually performed on a willing individual or from the ambient energies of a large group or crowd. This term is often mistakenly confused with the pop psychology use of “psychic vampire” or “psychological vampire”, used as a metaphor to describe specific socially manipulative behaviors. The most common usage within the Community, however, does not include this metaphor. Psi vampire, refers to a vampire who feeds by some manner of energy transfer; this term may also be shortened to psivamp. Psy vampire, and “psychic vampire” are sometimes considered synonyms for psi vampire, but are also sometimes employed as separate terms with distinctive meanings. For example, “psi” is often employed as a synonym for ESP phenomena in parapsychology, and “psy” is short for either “psychic” or “psychological.” Those who make distinctions between these terms may use these meanings as the basis for their reasoning.

Hybrid or Psi/Sang Vampires claim to have no primary feeding method, being able to feed from either source at any time. Others report changing their primary feeding source from energy to blood, or vice versa, at various points in their lives. Some, but not all, vampires who can feed or have fed via both methods choose to describe themselves as Psi/Sang or Hybrid vampires.

Some Community members go further to define sub-classes of vampirism based on the detailed methods and sources of psychic feeding. These classes are most often distinguished from one another based on the type of energy gained. Those who feed from natural or elemental energy, and those who feed from humans either during sexual contact, during magickal rituals, or during times of high emotional output may be described as specific types of vampires. Further subcategories of psi feeding energy exist, including terminology to describe those who feed from direct contact with the human aura, those who feed from the ambient energy of crowds and public places, those who can only absorb certain kinds of emotions, etc. While we respect individuals' choices of self-description, untangling the definitional problems surrounding these distinctions is beyond the scope of this study, and for our purposes, only the distinctions between blood drinkers and energy feeders will be addressed, with some attention given to the primary psychic source of psi feeding.

That is actually extremely false. Myths of vampires have been around long before Vlad the Impaler. He never had any connection to vampires until Dracula came out. He was the inspiration for the character and that is all. It's also a misconception that Vlad the Impaler IS Dracula in the book. Bram Stoker used his story as just the background to the character and never states they are the same person in the novel, and infact there are many inconsistancies that prove this, but that's another story.

Mostly just first and second generation vamps.

I don't believe that a corpse can raise to life and go on trying to suck the life out of others. I feel that was a tale taken out of context.

I'd like a lot more details. On the Asian cultures that drink pig/duck blood as well as the African cultures as there's no nutritional value to blood and I doubt you'd survive long.

And you're way off the mark about Vlad.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

A bit from wiki on the pig's blood...

Pig's blood curd is rich in riboflavin, vitamin C, protein, iron, phosphorus, calcium, niacin and other minerals.[citation needed] Plasma proteins in pig blood are broken down in the human body into acid, which is able to react with the human body dust and metal particles of harmful compounds and detoxify, excreting toxins.[clarification needed][7] Moreover, it is easy for body to digest and absorb. It also contains a certain amount[vague] of lecithin and can curb the harmful effects of low density cholesterol.[citation needed]

Excessive consumption may cause iron poisoning. It might affect the absorption of other minerals. Therefore, it is suggested to eat pig blood no more than twice in a week.

RE: Real Vampires
I never thought Vampires were real until a few years ago. I was staying in Hollywood, CA with my band. Our neighbor was a local native guy that was pale and had fangs. Yes, he had real fangs and even said he was insecure about them. He was very nice and had all of us over for dinner several times. He would tell us the craziest stories about growing up in LA and living on the street. My band mates were freaked out because he ate raw meat and drank the blood from the plate. He was a MMA fighter. We still see his post online from time to time. We were all convinced he was a real vampire. He never slept, white skin, fangs, drank blood. He was charismatic and creepy at the same time. We often talk about him because our drummer swears he saw him disappear. They were in the laundry room when it happened. I did not see it, so I can't confirm or deny what happened. I only know what I saw and felt when we would go over to his place.
