    7-Water: Part 2, Lake Lanier

    7-Water: Part 2, Lake Lanier

    In Northern Georgia there is a lake named after the poet Sidney Lanier. It wasn’t always there, but humans usually find novel ways to get water to places where it is needed. Much like any other man-made lake, it has since become a tourist attraction since it was created in 1956. By some estimates, nearly 8,000,000 people come from all around the world every year to enjoy the beauty of this man made marvel. Looking back through history, large congregations of humanity tend to bring mystery and tragedy with them. This lake is no different. Lake Lanier seems to be plagued by all manner of mysterious forces: rogue waves, killings, suicides, missing persons, giant animals, mysterious shadows in the water, abandoned towns deep under the lake, and even the occasional haunting. Sounds like the place to be, huh?
    Today we have an interview with a Georgia native named Patrick. He lives close to Lake Lanier and he has provided great insight to the local perspective on these mysteries. Enjoy. And…
    Welcome to Fabled.

    6-Water: Part One

    6-Water: Part One

    Bodies of water gave life to the small tribes of humans that wandered the land in pre-historic times. When nomadic humans decided to shed their ancient ways for more agrarian lifestyles, water allowed these tribes of people to congregate around plots of fertile land to raise livestock and plant vast fields of crops in order to maintain the ability to stay in one spot for long periods of time. These rivers and lakes were literally the lifeblood of these communities. But for all the good these bodies of water have done, they are still mysterious forces of nature to us, and humans have always held a tenuous relationship with them because, try as we might to dam them, re-route them, or outright stop them in their tracks, water persists, and the inevitability of its victory over our attempts to control them or investigate them is ever-present. Today on Fabled, we’re talking about mysteries that surround the one thing that is probably the most responsible for our success as a species: rivers and lakes.

    Transcript: 
    First off, I want to give a huge shout out to Jim, who goes by @Hellhound911 on Twitter for the kind iTunes review and to reaching out to me @FabledPod on Twitter to let me know he listens. Listeners like him help the production of a show such as this all the more worthwhile. Also thank you to Ryan Simms (@RSimm_01 on Twitter) for listening and for the feedback on the episode lengths. This show started as a passion project of mine and the episodes have been only as long as I could stand to listen to myself talk. The episodes are getting incrementally longer as my comfort level increases so longer episodes should be coming down the pike soon. One last shout out to shnoobles for the great review on iTunes. If you haven’t yet, leave a review on iTunes and share this show with a friend; it’s the best way to keep this thing going and to build a great community of listeners. I’ve started a Facebook group as well and I’ll link it in the description of this episode. Thank you all so much for the support.
    Now, on with the show...
    Tulpas. Thoughtforms. Egregore. Our last episode covered the basics of what these were and outlined some topics that you may need to have a passing knowledge of for this episode. If you have not done so yet, please go back and listen to part one. It is worth it. We will all be here waiting when you return.
    A photo of a group of children exists. In that photo, the seemingly-terrified children look toward the camera in what appears to be abject horror; some appear to be running, some soldiering on toward the cameraman, shoulders slumped and eyes downcast. In the background of this photo there is… something. A blur, or mist in the vague shape of a humanoid. The pale, featureless orb atop its neck where a head should be faces the camera and takes in the children before it. This entity is ushering the children along, but to what end? Who can tell? Below, the photo is captioned:
    We didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time…
    [Dated] 1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead.
    The Slender Man has arrived. 
    One day in 2014, 12 year olds Anissa and Morgan lured their friend Peyton into the woods. Once deep enough into the woods that they would not be disturbed or overheard, the two girls attacked Peyton, one holding her down while another stabbed her 19 times. It was a horrible, inexcusable crime and I am deeply sorry to the families of those affected. For our purposes, this is all the detail that needs to be discussed. The case has been documented in detail in many other places. Why would two children do this to a friend? According to the two attackers, this was an attempt to appease the Slender Man, to prove to the world that he was real, and the sacrifice of this little girl was going to be the key to doing just that. But Peyton survived the brutal and senseless assault. Mustering her strength and crawling out of the woods to the nearest road, she flagged down a bicyclist who contacted first responders. Luckily, Peyton made it through the ordeal and lived to assist police in finding her attackers. Anissa and Morgan were so convinced that the Slender Man was real that they were willing to take the life of another child to prove it. They are paying for their crimes, but the fact remains that they attempted to kill for a fictional creature. This is an extreme example concerning the validity of Slender Man’s existence. But many more people have claimed to have seen or even interacted with the creature. Most, like the aforementioned criminal act, can b

    Humans love to make monsters. From Count Dracula to Jigsaw, we can’t help but give the creatures living in the dark corners of our minds some semblance of life. Whether that life is on paper and housed in the imaginations of the reader or seen on the big screen at your local cinema, we delight in frightening each other with the horrors we create and, at the end of our experiences with them, we take a breath and tell ourselves “That was fun but at least it wasn’t real.” And that’s true... right? What if the monsters that dwell in our imagination have the potential to be just that: real? Is it possible we can create our worst fears by focusing so intensely on them that they spring into existence, fully formed and ready to rain terror on us? Some think so, and this focus on our fears may have created the worst monster of all: Today, we discuss Slender Man.
    To get to where we need to go with this idea of what Slender Man may be, we need to travel back in time to the origins of Tibetan Buddhism and explore the idea of the Thought-Form, or Tulpa, which is also referred to as an Emanation in ancient scripts. Going back to the earliest days of Buddhism there have always been teachings that deal with the concept of time, reality, and what we really are as sentient creatures. These teachings on the nature of reality led some of the practitioners of Buddhism to develop the concept of the Emanation. An Emanation, or Tulpa, was an extension of oneself on a spiritual level, however, powerful Buddha were said to have been able to create individual Tulpas that could think and act outside the will of their creator. This ability to create an Emanation was an explanation in early Buddhism as to how some of the Buddha throughout history were able to travel to heavenly realms while their body remained here in this realm. The practitioners would meditate in such a focused way that they would literally create a projection or copy of themselves in the heavenly realm they wished to visit. Obviously the idea of the Tulpa is a deeply spiritual one to practitioners of different sects of Buddhism and is vastly different in practice to the Thought-Forms we will discuss shortly. However, for our purposes, it is important to note that people have been claiming the ability to literally create beings from nothing but thoughts for many centuries.
    As with most things, Western culture in the early 20th century took the teachings of the Tibetan monks and adapted the concept of the Emanation into the idea of the Thought-Form and brought it to America. These people, calling themselves Theosophists, or religious philosophers, were led by a woman named Helena Blavatsky and drew upon what she referred to as ancient knowledge from “The Masters”, or, ancient spirits whom she claimed to have a psychic or spiritual connection with. Theosophists believed that if groups of people focused their thoughts on a particular idea for long enough, it would manifest physically in our world. Another group who took the concept of the Tulpa and ran with it was The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This group rose to some popularity in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and included notable people such as Alistair Crowley, the famed magician, author, and occult leader, among its ranks and leadership. The HOGD was a group of like-minded people who focused their studies on such things as the occult, paranormal activity, and metaphysics as a way to understand the world around them and to practice magic that might benefit themselves. Among many things they are known for (mostly large orgies claiming to be for channeling some sort of uni

    3-Home Means Nevada

    Humans have a tendency to attribute mystery to the mundane. When mysterious impressions are found in 19th-century Nevada, the question everyone has on their minds is "where did these come from?"
