With all of the shows about vampires, a social trend emerged with a unique group calling themselves, “Vampirekin,” who believe in and live the lifestyle of being vampires. Something appears to be triggering the base instinct of animalistic behavior which can be traced to primitives who may have consumed human blood and flesh in order to remain youthful and have eternal life.  Are there those in places of power who drink the blood of innocents? Are these vampire stories legend or myth, or, is there a kernel of truth to them? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Steve Stockton and Sandy Lewis about  ANOTHER VIEW OF THE VAMPIRE.





In a world that preaches free market ideologies –the newly accepted fringe has finally succeeded in turning the individual intellect, and the collective that is the Western civilization, into little more than value objects.

We can say that we have seen in the 21st century the remarkable change in reality that now everything, everyone, every emotion and even every movement has a price and a cost. Western society and individual thought have, at long last, become totally materialistic; which is to say, completely economic according to practices decidedly informed by 18th and 19th Century philosophy –which compared to now may be argued to be more informed and less political — rather than politically misinformed.

However, it appears we have not shaken old brutalities and even in the face of all that is holy –we have allowed the vipers to come in. Vipers that groom us for that massive bloodletting and serpents that groom our children for trafficking and slavery.

These underworld policies have led to ice-cold calculus, and equally brutal callousness, now present in the minds of the rulers, and the ruled. The efforts of journalists and academics are nearly intellectually bankrupt save for the “effort” of trying to report on the world not as it appears, but as it is as designed and managed by willful totalitarianism Vampires that provide for a “free” life in terms demanded by a Great Reset doctrine, even as it tortures that life daily, providing no escape from the daily routine. Even dreams are polluted. the unconscious mind is also polluted and it has been said that dreams are now turning to nightmares as we play back the fears of a muted future.

Transhumanists want you to think that the intellectual limits of the unenhanced human mind has now been reached.

Is it any wonder that technological, bioengineering and chemical enhancements are rapidly being called for by all?

Some people no longer have the desire to be human. They no longer wish to recognize gender roles or even gender assignments.

The most puzzling forms of human behavior, and their most horrifying, are no longer repulsive or indignant or hampered in their development, production and marketing. They are valuable in the sense that they are held by society to have monetary value either in the form of debt or credit. Such is the replacement for the concepts of right and wrong, moral and immoral. Boundaries and limits have been eliminated in every sphere of life.

In the era of transgender and transracial one can only expect that trans-life and trans-species will be next.

There is a new group that calls itself “Otherkin” a group of people who do not identify as human.

The origin and exact definition of otherkins is somewhat nebulous. Some otherkins regard themselves as transspecies, others believe that their identity is genetic, a result of reincarnation or feel that being otherkin is a religion.

Some otherkins identify with a specific animal, and others identify as mythical creatures. Some common otherkin identities include angels, demons, fairies, aliens, cartoon characters and sprites. There is even a group of otherkin that call themselves Vampirekin –who believe and live the lifestyle of being a vampire.

Vampirekin are individuals that are, feel, and/or believe they are in part or whole (non-physically) a vampire on an integral and personal level. An individual whose body image of their species is that of a vampire. Someone that identifies (non-physically) as a humanoid being that has a diet consisting of blood and/or has other traits sometimes (or most of the time) associated with the (fictional, mythical, folkloric, etc) vampire.

Someone who psychologically has a strong personal and integral identification with a being that society would call a “vampire,” or someone who spiritually has the soul/spirit of being that society would call a “vampire.” Someone whose sense of identity fits under the common use of the term “vampire” by society.

They share a bond with the “Otherkin” like draconic, therians, elfkin, etc) They might describe their nonhuman identities and feelings with just “dragons/wolf/elf/etc” replaced with “vampire” in their case. Just to name of a few definitions that could define who and what vampirekin are,

Like transgenders, the trans-species is also seeking recognition as a protected class.

Otherkins are believed to have started from an internet community of online elves in the 1990s. The University of Cambridge did a deep dive into what it means to be an otherkin, which cites a paper titled Doctors Herding Cats: The Misadventures of Modern Medicine and Psychology with Non-human Identities.

The author, Pedro Feijo writes: ‘We have witnessed, in the last half a century, an explosion of politics grounded on new identities, and on their overcoming.

‘People have been experimenting with and transgressing the limits of what it means to be a woman, of what it means to have a gender, a sex, or a sexual orientation.’

Across the western world, individuals and collectives are defying our identity as organic beings, in contrast with mechanical ones, and exploring cyborgism. Social movements of trans and disabled people started questioning what it means exactly to be an able body.

If one identifies as an amputee then in the mind of psychologists it should be honored like those who see themselves as a different gender.

Those with BIID– Body Integrity Identity Disorder would prefer to be ‘disabled’ have followed in the same footsteps as the transgender and otherkin communities.

Otherkin believe that they are happier when they don’t have to live as humans. As social beings, a sense of identity plays an important role in our relations – and in our own happiness.

But according to the otherkin identity doesn’t have to be narrowly human.

People who identify as other than human have been described and describe themselves as ‘animal-people’, ‘lycanthropes’, ‘therianthropes’ and vampires. Accounts of therianthropy (the psychiatric term for the delusional state of being an animal) exist in 19th-century medical literature. This was also common in Europe where mass murderers would identify as either vampires or werewolves.

Last month the remains of a ‘female vampire’ pinned to the ground by a sickle across her throat and a padlocked toe to ‘prevent her returning from the dead were found in a village in Poland.

Discovered during archaeological work at a 17th-century cemetery in the village of Pien, researchers also found the skeletal remains had a silk cap on its head, indicating she had held a high social status, and a protruding tooth.

The sickle was not laid flat but placed on the neck in such a way that if the deceased had tried to get up most likely the head would have been cut off or injured.

The padlocked big toe on the skeleton’s left foot likely symbolized ‘the closing of a stage and the impossibility of returning.’

Records of myths about the undead date back as far as the 11th century in Easter Europe. People feared that some who were buried would claw their way back up to the surface as blood-sucking monsters, and terrorize the living.

It is not uncommon for the region to find burial sites where a metal rod – or a stake – have been hammered through the skull of the deceased. People at the time believed this was one way to ensure the person stayed dead.

In some parts of the continent – particularly among Slavic people belief in the legends of vampires became so widespread that it caused mass hysteria, and even led to executions of people thought to be vampires.

People who died in untimely ways – such as through suicide – would also often have been suspected of vampirism, and their bodies would have been mutilated to prevent them from rising from the dead.

In 2015, archaeologists in the village of Drewsko 130 miles away found five skeletons buried in a similar manner at a 400-year-old cemetery. Sickles were found pressed against the throats of an adult man, who was between 35 to 44 years old, and an adult woman around 35 to 39 years old.

An older woman, who was 50 to 60 years old when she died, was buried with a sickle laying across her hips, and a medium sized stone at her throat.

Two more graves, both with sickles placed at the throats of the skeletons, revealed an adult woman between 30 and 39 years old, and a young girl who was just 14 to 19. The researchers who made the discovery said at the time: ‘When placed in burials they were a guarantee that the deceased remained in their graves and therefore could not harm the living, but they may also have served to protect the dead from evil forces.

‘According to folk wisdom, a sickle protected women in labor, children and the dead against evil spirits.

It also had a role in rituals designed to counter black magic and witchcraft.

Today Otherkin vampirism is a lifestyle that wants to be recognized as genetic — like homosexuality.

This is different than vampirism in that a vampirekin identifies their kintype as being a vampire as opposed to someone who feels/needs energy or blood to remain healthy. Where there are people like sanguinarians who are people who drink blood and pranavores (or also called psychic vampires) who feed on energy; vampirekin are merely people who identity as/with vampires like other otherkin do for their kintype. No need for blood or energy is required to be vampirekin just as with other kinds of otherkin. Being a vampirekin just required identifying as a vampire on an integral and personal level like any other kind of otherkin.

A vampirekin might also be a sanguinarian and/or pranavore as they could be only a vampirekin just with other kinds of otherkin, however they are not the same concept. Sanguinarians and pranavores aren’t otherkin/don’t have to be otherkin unless they also identify as such. Vampirekin is a kind of otherkin. One, at its base, is an identity while the other, at is base, is a need.

But tolerance of difference is shallow – and acceptance of people who feel different, and visibly don’t conform, is frequently tinged with ridicule. Their perceived absurdity was capitalized not only for diagnostic purposes, but also for mercantile ones.

For example, otherkin who identify as werewolves are nothing more than psychological curiosities, seen as fetishized subjects and ultimately as immaterial commodities. Lycanthrophy is written not so much for reasons of intellectual inquiry but because it sells.

The same can be said for Vampirekin.

Modern psychiatry and psychology have not been able to keep up-to-date with new post-human perceptions, which have been unable to admit the problems of distinguishing between a phenomenological symptom and a voluntary behavior, and furthermore which have chosen to pathologize and ruin the lives of many through the insistence on an obsolete paradigm, while the same people could have found a supporting community off- and online.

The narratives of those who share the rejection of their full humanity and an entangled sympathy with other beings have taken a new critical role in the 21st century. They pose a simple, uncomfortable question: what does it mean to be human?

Can a human identity as an animal or even a Vampire — where do we draw the line between fantasy and reality — or is this the new reality?

Back in January Actress Megan Fox and singer, rapper and sometimes actor Machine Gun Kelly got engaged. After she said yes, the couple took a far more serious step: They drank each other’s blood.

Megan has of course appeared in several movies — and is considered hard to work with –some say she is a little crazy — and Kelly for some reason is a celebrity– someone that you have to look up on Wikipedia or the internet movie database to figure out that he played Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee in “The Dirt.”Meagan Posted on Instagram how magical their union is– inferring that drinking blood was a magical elixir.

A press release about the engagement said this:

We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated by the love. And the karma. Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And Just as in every life before this one as in every life that will follow it — I said yes. And then we drank each other’s blood.

First of all, this apparently isn’t even the first time Fox and Kelly, have exchanged blood over the course of their relationship.

On Valentine’s Day 2021, Fox gifted Baker a necklace with a drop of her own blood with it, which Kelly then memorialized with a creative Instagram caption: “i wear your blood around my neck.

The necklace was an obvious nod to another celebrity couple — you may remember that Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton, wore necklaces with “vials” of each other’s blood during their three-year marriage, from 2000 to 2003.

Angelina Jole was recently featured in a video promoting the gourmet preparation of Spiders and scorpions in order to keep the planet greener. She is seen eating large spiders and scorpions with children.

The fact that in a ceremony where Kelly and Fox drank each other’s blood is something that seems to be a new trend with Hollywood celebrity couples.

If you think famous people are going to shy away from making a bodily fluid trendy — think again. It seems that they no longer hide it. Those who enjoy the blood spatter are now coming out –and well it certainly stoles the fires of conspiracy theories that claim that some of the elite are into drinking blood –especially the blood of innocent children.

We’re living in a time where conspiracy theories have more political heft than ever, and one of the most popular ones incorporates the idea that an elite tier of the population literally drinks blood.

Well now can we say that the conspiracy theorists have again scored a direct hit? There have been many speculations over time where people believe that vampirism exists in Hollywood — some even think that there are some elites that are cannibals.

Discovery + just released a documentary called House of Hammer.

This documentary contains graphic descriptions of violence, sexual abuse and coercive control. House of Hammer exposes details surrounding the sexual abuse allegations against Armie Hammer.

In early 2021, an onslaught of unverified messages that “The Social Network” star had allegedly sent to women surfaced on social media after one of his exes began to anonymously post graphic messages in which Hammer allegedly texted, “I am 100% a cannibal” and “I want to eat you.” The messages snowballed and Hammer’s career went into freefall.

Hammer has denied all allegations, maintaining that any and all interactions with his sexual partners were consensual and mutually participatory. But numerous women have accused him of abuse, coercion and even rape, which lead to an LAPD investigation.

According to research by the enigma channel’s Chris Everard –In ancient Germany, many witches, known as ‘hexe’ were vampires – often accused of drinking the blood of babies…

By drinking human blood, legends say vampires could prolong their lives. They amassed fortunes and became aristocrats and land owners.

In Hungary, Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia, in the year 1730, there was a well-marked epidemic of vampirism, committed by noblemen and their vampiric wives. In White Russia and the Ukraine, it is believed that vampires are generally wizards or sorcerers – and many had been awarded royal status.

And so too, vampires ruled over feudal estates in Scotland, Ireland, and England.

Tensions and wars often broke out between these clans – but few people dared to speak of the vampire aristocrats for fear of being made one of the undead.

In fact, all the early vampire authors – Bram Stoker, Lord Byron, Polydori and FS LeFanu – all made it very clear that some royal Viscounts, Earls and Dukes had been vampires for centuries.

It needs to be revealed that according to a survey there are more than 5,000 people out there who actually consume human and animal blood.

The Dark Ages were rife with plague, fanaticism, and accusations that vampires made pacts with Satan and secretly fed off the blood of children.

Today we are facing some eerie parallels as we are experiencing a plague and there are rumors flying around the internet that the rich and powerful are ritualistically drinking the blood or at least a component of the blood of terrified children.

Adrenochrome is a compound that occurs in the body, but about which little scientific research has been done beyond a few studies in the mid-20th century on whether it could play a role in schizophrenia.

It is now a dirty little conspiracy theory that the elite wish would go away. But it is hard not to speculate about this new form of vampirism when millionaires that are hell-bent on an Immortality Investment seek the sorcerer’s stone or hire the right alchemist to get the job done.

If you recall, three years ago there was a controversy regarding a sort of Silicon Valley vampirism where billionaires “end up being sustained by young blood.

Peter Thiel is allegedly receiving injections of blood drawn from healthy young kids, a technique that hasn’t been shown to work in humans and is based on some very scary studies in mice.

It just depends on who you ask –and what services provide the vampiric service.

An article in Futurism says that scientists are actually perfecting the practice of parabiosis but it is still facing some quarrelsome discussions in the scientific community.

The question persists are there those who drink the blood of innocents and are they still in places of power? Are these vampire stories legend or myth and is there a kernel of truth to them?

Vampires have been a focal point of literature since Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, “Dracula”. The present captivation with dark supernaturalism seems to create a cultural high and while religious leaders hope it fades, it seems that more and more stable people will indulge in the dark fetishism of the vampire, it doesn’t seem to be going away.

Is this all delusion? Is it part of the cult of supernaturalism that religious clerics believe is moving through the consciousness of the zeitgeist?

The history speaks for itself, and perhaps beastly instincts are being triggered because some people are keener to the possibility of a cataclysmic cycle.

Something is triggering the base instinct of animalistic behavior which can be traced to primitives who may have been used to drinking human blood and partaking of the flesh in order to remain youthful and have eternal life.

    Vampirism has been popularized more than any other type of monstrous behavior. There are a lot of people who are naturally psychic vampires. Some consider it a personality type. There are many books that have been written on the subject. It may have been Anton Lavey, author of the Satanic Bible who first wrote and warned people to beware of these people who drain the life out of you. He basically said Satanism is about empowering one’s self and psychic vampires steal your power. Don’t let others feed off of you. More recently other books like The Psychic Vampire Codex by author Michelle Belanger discuss different kinds of psychic vampires and teaches techniques to use to feed off of others energy. Everyone has the potential to be a vampire, but few practice the art and even fewer actually drink blood and consider themselves to be non human. Like many occult practices its good to have the knowledge so you have awareness and defenses if someone targets you. This modern vampirism is targeted toward young people maybe even more so to women then men through the media. With countless romantic vampire tv shows.

    To get a little deeper one could say there is an underworld that exists here simultaneously with our reality. Many people act as vampires or werewolves or zombies. The dark thoughts of a person’s dark half come to the surface on occasion. This underworld realm is gaining power and our reality which is like a facade is weakening. People are being groomed, trained if you will to function according to their darker selves.
