Just thought I would make a bit of a comment here since I was the one to bring up the subject of Vampirism here and have been quite for sometime now. Been busy with other things. Anyway, here are my thought on things. Concerning the subject of MAKING vampires, if we are talking about the human vampire, most people of the vampire community believe that vampirism is a result of a condition of the spiritual body which requires the vampire to feed because they can't produce enough spiritual energy to substain themselves or they burn it off quicker than they produce it, or they just have a problem containing it. Many within the Vampire Community seem to believe that you have to be born a vampire, you may be 'awakened' but not 'turned' or 'made a vampire'. Myself, I believe that if it is a condition of the subtle bodies then there must be a way of creating such a condition. Thus, I feel it must be possible to make a person a vampire, or turn them so to speak. Concerning spiritual vampires, this gets deeper into occultism. If one believes in an after life and believes there are people who are vampires ( who feed off the life-force of others ) in this life, then it only follows that there are those shades of the dead (or undead) the continue there existance as a vampire in the after-life. Also, if there are humans that can be vampiric, and one believes in spirits such as angels, demons, djinn, nuture spirits and the like, what is to say that some of these spirts could not be vampiric? There is also within magic what is known as the creation of servitors. Servitors are in essence an extention of the magicians psyche that seem to take on a life of their own after their creation. It is possible to create a vampiric servitor. One must understand that my idea of vamprism is the feeding upon the life-force of another. I understand that there are vampires that drink actual blood. But the blood only serves as a link to the life-force of the one whose blood is being drank. Unless there is an exchange of energy then the drinking of blood is nothing more than a fetish. Well, I think I have went on long enough.
