The Slender Man Movie by AJ Meadows The Slender Man is a product of the internet. It all started back in 2009 with a thread on the SomethingAwful forums, when Victor Surge posted a picture he made of a tall man-like being with long arms he dubbed 'The Slender Man' as a part of their 'Paranormal Images' Photoshop contest. It wasn't long before other members posted their own Slender Man pictures and the internet caught wind of the creepy creation. Soon, the internet was ablaze with various forums and communities adding to the Slender Man lore. The stories tell of a tall, thin, human-like creature (appearing to wear a suit) who snatches up children and in some cases adults as well. Perhaps the most popular and well known pieces of Slender Man media to come from the web (with the exception of the original images themselves) is the MarbleHornets youtube channel and a new indie horror game called Slender. What we want to do is pay service to the stories created by anyone who's added to the Slender Man's urban legend.
Aokigahara: Japan’s Haunted Forest of Death Located at the base of Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is perhaps the most infamous forest in all of Japan. Also known as the Sea of Trees, Suicide Forest, and Japan’s Demon Forest, Aokigahara has been home to over 500 confirmed suicides since the 1950s. A Horrifying Legend is Born Legend says that this all started after Seicho Matsumoto published a novel by the name of Kuroi Kaiju (Black Sea of Trees) in 1960. Wataru Tsurumui’s controversial 1993 bestseller, The Complete Suicide Manual, is a book that describes various modes of suicide and even recommends Aokigahara as the perfect place to die. Japan’s suicide rate is already bad enough as it is, and having this forest and suicide manual on top of it all is pretty terrible. Legend has it that in ancient times families would abandon people in the forest during periods of famine when there was not enough food to go around. In addition, there are many other ghost and demon stories associated with the forest. Terrifying Topography Destination Truth
Dyatlov Pass incident The Dyatlov Pass incident (Russian: Гибель тургруппы Дятлова) refers to the unsolved deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural Mountains in the Soviet Union (now Russia) between 1 February and 2 February 1959. The area in which the incident took place was named Dyatlov Pass in honor of the group's leader, Igor Dyatlov. The experienced trekking group, who were all from the Ural Polytechnical Institute, had established a camp on the slopes of Kholat Syakhl when disaster struck. During the night, something caused them to tear their way out of their tents and to flee the campsite while inadequately dressed during a heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperature. After the discovery of the group's bodies, Soviet Union investigators determined that six victims died from hypothermia and that the three others showed signs of physical trauma. Access to the region was closed to expeditions and hikers for three years after the incident. Background Expedition Dyatlov Pass Investigation
Lucid Dreaming/Using Dream stabilization Once you are able to dream lucidly, you may find that it is difficult to stay in the dream; for example, you may wake instantly or the dream may start “fading” which is characterized by loss or degradation of any of the senses, especially vision. Alternatively, a new lucid dreamer could easily forget that they are in a dream, as a result of the shock of the sensation. Don't worry if you wake immediately after becoming lucid. As you gain more experience of becoming lucid, it will come as less of a shock and you’ll be less likely to wake up. You can avoid more gradual fadings by stimulating your senses. Ideally you should be able to use the techniques below to stabilize your dream before it starts to fade (or “black out”). If you still can’t stabilize your dream, you may decide to try and wake up with the aim of remembering your dream as accurately as possible while its still fresh in your mind.

Tulpa Tulpa (Tibetan: སྤྲུལ་པ, Wylie: sprul-pa; Sanskrit: निर्मित nirmita and निर्माण nirmāṇa; "to build" or "to construct") also translated as "magical emanation", "conjured thing"  and "phantom"  is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual or mental discipline alone. It is defined in Indian Buddhist texts as any unreal, illusory or mind created apparition. According to Alexandra David-Néel, tulpas are "magic formations generated by a powerful concentration of thought." It is a materialized thought that has taken physical form and is usually regarded as synonymous to a thoughtform. Indian Buddhism One early Buddhist text, the Samaññaphala Sutta lists the ability to create a “mind-made body” (manomāyakāya) as one of the "fruits of the contemplative life". Tibetan Buddhism Tulpa is a spiritual discipline and teachings concept in Tibetan Buddhism and Bon. Alexandra David-Néel Thoughtform Modern perspective
40 Ways to Feel More Alive “I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” ~Joseph Campbell As I write this, I am two hours away from my first weekly acting class in Los Angeles. I frequently said I wanted to do it, along with painting classes, which I’m starting next week, but I always made excuses not to start either. I was too busy. The list went on and on, but I realized the last two were the big ones for me. Also, I hesitate to give large amounts of time to hobbies I have no intention of pursuing professionally. I realized last month, however, that I want to prioritize more of the things that make me feel passionate and excited—and not just occasionally, but regularly. I don’t know if these classes are “leading” anywhere. That’s what it means to really feel alive—to be so immersed in the passionate bliss of this moment that you don’t think about yesterday or tomorrow.

Irish's Creation Guide • Guides • Tulpa.Info By Irish Reasons for following this guide I won’t tell you to follow this guide because it’s the ALMIGHTY GUIDE OF KNOWING EVERYTHING. I’ll just say this, I have no reason why you should follow my guide. If you feel like following it then more power to you. How my guide is different than FAQ’s My guide has the wonderland way and doesn’t work on personality at all (explained more in the guide). Some steps and info I was bored and found this whole tulpa ordeal a year or so ago and decided I wanted a companion of sorts so the idea of a tulpa really hit home.I decided on a form and the type of tulpa that I wanted and what I’d use the tulpa for (Basically companionship). Parroting – IMPORTANT Know this, parroting is basically forcing your tulpa to do whatever you’re thinking of. There are some types of good parroting, such as parroting it to do something to kick start it, or for voice you can kickstart by making it speak or say whatever you want.

Freud's *The Interpretation of Dreams* Chapter 1, Section D Back to Psych Web Home Page Back to The Interpretation of Dreams Table of Contents D. That a dream fades away in the morning is proverbial. The forgetting of dreams is treated in the most detailed manner by Strumpell. In the first place, all those factors which induce forgetfulness in the waking state determine also the forgetting of dreams. * Periodically recurrent dreams have been observed repeatedly. According to Strumpell, other factors, deriving from the relation of the dream to the waking state, are even more effective in causing us to forget our dreams. Finally, we should remember that the fact that most people take but little interest in their dreams is conducive to the forgetting of dreams. It is therefore all the more remarkable, as Strumpell himself observes, that, in spite of all these reasons for forgetting the dream, so many dreams are retained in the memory. Jessen (p. 547) expresses himself in very decided terms: The observations of V. On to Chapter 1, Section E
