The link below will take you to a really long article, but if you've got some time, it is quite interesting, whether you think it sounds too sensationalistic or not. Give it a read, and see what you think. It gets a lot less basic as it goes on, try to stay awake through the first pages. http://www.whitedragon.org.uk/articles/vampyres.htm I personally had heard the term psychic vampire since I was a little boy, but I'd never really thought that much on the subject. That is, until I met one. One who so strongly resembles this psychological stew of mental problems, so extreme that it could create one of these cerebral blackholes,with their inherent controlling natures and the resulting adverse effects, that sound exactly like the disasters which these creatures usually thrive on. It may in scientific terms be a combinative personality disorder, but it seems to have paranormal ramifications as well. And that got me to wonder, if these people are real, and I'd bet many of you know one of them already, What's to say that Bush and Cheney aren't the biggest psychic vampires of all time?(possible exception for Hitler) Check out the list of 8 behavioral criterion in this article( in the second half of the article) and think about the insanities created by these guys, and their reasons given, and it sounds like a perfect description of our current administration. It may not be scientific, but it sure does explain oh, so many things about why they act as they do. Do you know a psychic vampire?
