Section 1 : Beliefs and Definitions

Define vampire and vampirism.

A vampire is someone born with an energy deficiency that directly relates to our health, because of this they are more prone to sensitivity of, understanding, and working with energies as part of our survival.

Would you define vampires as human or non-human?

Human, but different, keeping in mind the condition that we have.

Do you believe that there's more than one kind vampire? If so, what do you think those kinds are and what defines them?

I believe that we are all consumers on energy. We have different pallets for feedings, but we are all vampires none the less.

Section 2 : Traits

Do you believe vampires are born, made, or some of each?

Born, though I have seen others mimic vampirism to a degree.

Do you believe non-vampires can be turned into vampires?

No, but I believe that one's energy can mimic vampirism in time of need.

If you think non-vampires can be turned into vampires how might that be accomplished?

I believe that it can be mimicked out of a large amount of energy loss or perhaps by great illness.

Do you think there are certain traits that all vampires share. What are they? If a self-proclaimed vampire doesn't exhibit these traits how would you classify them?

I would say that we all have a deficiency and need to survive. I wouldn't classify anyone who doesn't need to consume as a vampire.

Section 3 : Sang~Psi~Self-Perception

How do you know you're a vampire, or if you're not, what would make you think someone else was one.

I feel it. I also tend to feel others in the same way. In times when I questioned it and stopped my energy practices, my health failed me.

If your definitions include "energy," define "energy." If not, what do you believe the vampire draws sustenance from?

I would say energy can be biological, biochemical, spiritual, elemental… Energy can be found in all places and all forms, it is just a matter of what we can take from it to help ourselves in our condition.

Have you ever consumed blood? If so, how does doing so effect you?

Yes, I feel quite charged as well as whatever the donor puts into the blood by feeling.

Do you believe in "psychic/psionic" abilities? If so, do you think vampires have enhanced abilities in this area?

Yes, I believe like anything with a means of survival, that we are adapt to what our source of survival is.

Do you believe that all vampires need to consume blood or that some can feed by tapping energy directly(psionically)?

I believe we all have our different ways of feeding, regardless of the means.

Section 4 : Spiritual and Social

Do you follow a particular spiritual path and if so what is it?

That I do not, I keep an open mind and evolve my philosophies.

Does your spirituality or religion have any relationship to vampirism? Do you believe that vampirism has a religious context or is a religion?

I believe it can, based on interpretation.

Do you believe in physical immortality, and if so can vampires be immortal? What about spiritual immortality?

I do not believe in physical immortality, though it would be something interesting. Spiritual immortality, on the other hand seems quite possible, but I haven't seen any proof that would bring confirmation.

What do you think would be the ideal relationships between vampires and society? What do you see the real relationship between vampires and society as being?

I believe the ideal relationships between vampires and society should be that of open-mindedness and respect for others, regardless of differences. I believe the relationship is currently misunderstood and therefore handled poorly on some fronts.

Do you think there should be an overall community or organization for all vampires? If so how should it be structured? If not, why not?

I believe there should be an overall community, at least in communication. As for the structure, it should allow freedoms of difference held by and of each family, individual, and group, regardless of organization.
