Not if dragula developed lasting sleep! !

Perhaps even in some god forsaken mystic cave somewhere in some veritable desert covered by forbidding sky clouds.

To forget, oh to forget and forgive, and dragula could stop pretending there really was someone out there , with foresight and charm, darling.

But dragula was afraid of drac, her nemesis, and shuddered at the spite he brought into her life ever since.

Ever since what? Her mind started to unreel. Into the black, from he blue, realiy.-ever since the owl took his soul away and hers to the land of morpheus.

Vampire bats can take up to 200 degrees of heat. The ability to take heat may be the partially differentiated key, both to the problem of the corona virus and the NWO.
Maybe in these days, nature is making a huge social and biological shift.






And to the coronavirus problem: ultraheating may be a partial solution.

Belarus president believes vodka and saunas will cure coronavirus

By Lee Brown

March 30, 2020 | 7:57am



Belarus president Alexander LukashenkoGetty Images


And we’re the crazy ones?

The president of Belarus is insisting that vodka and saunas will cure the coronavirus — while claiming nations that have gone into lockdown are in the throes of a “psychosis,” according to reports.

President Alexander Lukashenko has insisted the Eastern European nation of nearly 9.5 million remain open for business — and even took part in a packed ice hockey match on Saturday.

“It’s better to die standing that to live on your knees,” he said, quoting the Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata, and calling sports “the best anti-virus remedy”.

“There are no viruses here,” he said of the ice rink after his game, insisting, “I don’t see them.”

He attacked the “psychosis” that is crippling other nations’ economies, saying the “world has gone mad” — and offering what he says are simple solutions.

“People should not only wash their hands with vodka but also poison the virus with it,” he advised his people, according to The Times of London.

“You should drink the equivalent of 40-50 milliliters of rectified spirit daily. But not at work,” he reportedly said.

Lukashenko, who has ruled Belarus since 1994, advised slugging back the hard liquor after trips to the banya — a Russian-style sauna — “two or three times a week,” the UK Times said.

“When you come out of the sauna, not only wash your hands, but also your insides with 100 milliliters [of vodka],” Lukashenko said, according to the report.

He also advised that hard work would cure the deadly pandemic.

“You just have to work, especially now, in a village. Tractors will cure everyone! The field heals everyone!” he said.

Belarus has confirmed about 100 cases of the virus with no deaths — but many believe the government is covering up the true number, according to the UK paper.

“Lots of people think he is acting frivolously and irresponsibly,” Marina Zolotova, the editor-in-chief of the tut.by news website, told the paper.

Nosferatu: How The Silent Vampire Classic Was Almost Lost Forever
BY MICHAEL KENNEDY – ON APR 30, 2020 IN HORROR


1922's Nosferatu is today regarded as a classic of the horror genre, and of silent film, but it was almost lost forever thanks to a lawsuit. When it comes to the first major vampire film, many people would likely immediately think of 1931's Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. That's understandable, as Lugosi's Dracula is definitely the most famous bloodsucker in pop culture history. However, Nosferatu predated that film by almost a full decade, and some would argue is just as good.




Nosferatu stars Max Schreck as Count Orlok, a vampire seeking a new place to live who ends up with his sights set on the wife of his real estate agent. Anyone watching Nosferatu for the first time will likely be struck at just how similar it is to Dracula, and as it happens, that's no accident. Nosferatu was designed to be an unlicensed German expressionist adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel, but ended up changing some names, locations, and circumstances to try and avoid legal issues.



Yet, even in the 1920s, copyright law was still very much a thing, and Nosferatu ended up running afoul of it. The legal battle that ensued ended up almost destroying the film completely, but thankfully, there will always be people who don't do what they're told.

NOSFERATU: WHY THE SILENT VAMPIRE CLASSIC WAS ALMOST LOST FOREVER

As it turns out, Nosferatu producer Albin Grau did at least ask Bram Stoker's widow Florence if he could purchase the rights to adapt Dracula, but she refused. Grau wouldn't take no for an answer, even though under the terms of German copyright law the book wouldn't become public domain until the 1960s. Grau may have been spared the wrath of Stoker's widow, had some early prints of the film and posters not directly referred to Dracula. Florence Stoker sued Grau, and won, with a judge ruling that all copies of Nosferatu be destroyed.


While that seems harsh, it's important to remember that Grau knew from the beginning that he was breaking the law, yet pressed forward with adapting Dracula in all but a few elements anyway. Clearly he thought he could get away with it, but that wasn't the case. Thankfully for film buffs, the judge's order went unheeded by some, and a single print survived. That print of Nosferatu eventually found its way to the U.S. in 1929, where the law already said Dracula was public domain, and further prints were made from there. When Dracula's public domain status became universal in 1962, Nosferatu's fight for survival was officially over, one assumes to the chagrin of the Stoker estate. Still, losing Nosferatu to time would've been a huge loss to horror history, and regardless of its questionable origins, the film remains a treasure.

Wish. Wish to contra civilisation and it's discontent to be to be to be animal,
to be animal, wish to be
animal, ain't that romantic,
to wish,
to be to be to be animal, to discontent
to be to be to be animal
romantic, no to be civilisation animal
and to be discontent,
to be animal, romantic discontent
animal


But then:

Animal looses control, wish to gain, control and civilised,
Civilised and controlled the heard,
Heard?

That civilisation controls by the idea of hearing animals before slaughtering them for their beauty, the beast slaughters the beauty all because of the civilised atrocity of the sacrificial lamb.

Keep your clothes on and the pornographers out, for ain't it romantic to reveal the discontent of penned up civilisations simulated by the pornographers where everyone can get their vampiric stake of beauty?

Is that what's all at stake? : or, burned and shunned.

How come then you come begging to me to reverse transvaluate that and make it again sacred away from the profanity of love. Away from the profanity of the vulgar gods?

No it won't work. The wise ones retreat to Walhalla, away from pleasure into the pain of overcoming the sudden urge of spurting the energy in spasms of finality, with diminishing capacity to again and again simulate that decades of kindness to the preception of the void,
the only means of subterfuge to satisfy the empty one, the hungry ghosts of eternity.

The brain matter seminal to it's own content, Burroughs copped out on that one, for sure, in 1982. For sure he copped out can tell you, for sure.

That is why the ghosts are hungry for beauty , can't get their thrill , that is why their lunch is naked, and they can never fill.

Spurting out the romance, the romance of the sacrifice on battlegrounds of brotherhood, the compatriot sister did fInd, becoming no help us vain gods as an echo harbored Narcissus, when by now animal become the flower, to descend itself into a pre conscious scent,

The sisters of the Paris judgement can only wonder, three apples golden, land in forbidden garden and laugh, at the stupidity of beauty, the serpent' gill.


Why, the herders wonder of brain overcoming them , of brawn hearing eternal beauties through fountains come of, them, whom you once tried to love,
to cherish in angelic glow.

We do love you , course , but in retrospect so easy and forgiving the
self. Comes a time of emptied wells ,
asunder.

Some, have to, as though only the shadows
Fractures
as if for
Ever was not just a word

Has to for ever keep that heart
In which the darkness a force leading on

Somewhere.

Some have to adopt this pinioned stance the glare of which beyond all calculable expedient,

Some have to straight and narrow into that

Which was not meant to dissolve,
The ardor and anathema of the youngest.

No reason but by a deliberately hiss, a churning pain in the belly of the beast
The anachronism of the earliest signal for what's to come ever after.

Its pure involved guarantee to transfix through it, so hold on.

Here, comes

Trump is like a vampire!“You’ve got to drive a stake right through his heart. He’s going to keep coming. There’s nothing he won’t do. Even in this environment, you can’t count on him losing.”

{ Count Dracula counts backwards, when America was made Great!}



“He will not admit anything, and down faces everybody. If he can’t out-argue them he bullies them, and then takes their silence for agreement with his views.” — Bram Stoker,



Van Helsing as the Moral Driver in Stoker’s Dracula
J. Garcia
J. Garcia
Apr 28, 2016 · 8 min read


Religion is a heavy weight on the shoulders of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The novel asks the reader to question the weight and might of religion against the backdrop of the limited power of science. The novel positions religion as the moral arbiter of ultimate good. When all other reason fails religion and religious symbols win against the forces of darkness and ignorance. Christopher Herbert describes it in “Vampire Religion” as a “strong religious thrust” (100). Dracula is a novel fixated with facts and minutia while simultaneously giving way to overarching raids into the occult and divine. As an analogy to the overarching mechanics of religiosity and the divine Stoker positions Van Helsing as a God-like figure, while Count Dracula represents the more obvious devil-like figure. However, it is Van Helsing who carves the moral and religious reasoning that moves the plot forward. In this essay, we will analyze Van Helsing’s semi-deified role, his position as an arbiter between good and evil, and his interpretation of the world.
Van Helsing is an atypical character. Jonathan Harker, Mina Harker, Lucy Westenra, Arthur Holmwood, and John Seward are all British. We can confer the status of British on Mr. Morris under the United States previous colonial status and its cultural connection to England. However, the only two characters that are not British or connected to Britain by cultural association are Van Helsing and Dracula. He is described by Dr. Seward as “Professor Van Helsing, of Amsterdam who knows as much about obscure diseases as anyone in the world” (Stoker 105). From his first introduction, Van Helsing is demarcated as other by his place of origin and profuse knowledge. When Dr. Seward was perplexed by Lucy’s illness he looks towards a greater power, in this case, Van Helsing. Mario Vrbančic in his essay “Globalisation, Empire, and the Vampire” describes Van Helsing “job… [is] to make us believe the impossible” (5). It is interesting to note that in many Judeo-Christian traditions God is subtly trying to make his purpose be understood by progressive revelation. For example, in Daniel 10:1 the Bible states, “a revelation was given to Daniel… Its message was true and concerned a great war. The understanding of the message came to him in a vision” (NIV). In the book of Daniel, there are numerous messages that are only understood through the lens of time. Professor Van Helsing comes to the aid of those who seek help with knowledge, which he then reveals in incremental doses. He lords over the Lucy’s sickness and later the chase for Count Dracula with subtle God-like undertones.
During Lucy Westenra’s degeneration into a vampire, Van Helsing hints at knowledge and offers solutions that Dr. Seward, Lucy, and Lucy’s mother are all unfamiliar with and do not understand. In this regard the following excerpt elucidates Van Helsing’s alterity:
Oh, Professor, I believe you are only putting up a joke on me. Why, these flowers are only common garlic.”
To my surprise, Van Helsing rose up and said with all his sternness, his iron jaw set and his bushy eyebrows meeting,
“No trifling with me! I never jest! There is grim purpose in what I do, and I warn you that you do not thwart me. Take care, for the sake of others if not for your own. (Stoker 122)
If we notice, Van Helsing in this situation is taken to be jesting. Dr. Seward himself expresses surprise at the use of garlic but relents under Helsing’s explanation. Van Helsing is dominant and explosive. He dictates the course of action needed to be taken and those around him are expected to follow suit. In this fashion, Van Helsing represents a Judeo-Christion God who is forceful and managerial.
Ultimately, it is Van Helsing who drives the narrative against Dracula. In his speech before they leave to intercept the count Van Helsing says, “for it [referring to Dracula] have to yield to the powers that come from, and are, symbolic of good” (Stoker 298, 299). It is clear that Van Helsing knows what affects Dracula negatively and how he can be destroyed. He ascribes the label of good to religious objects that are embedded throughout the Christian tradition. Gavin Pate in “Vampire God” offers this modern moral critic of the vampire genre; “The vampire offers its victims horrific and contradictory choices when reflecting on their deaths. Will they be butchered and left for dead, or will they be granted the ultimate pardon, the immoral choice of everlasting life?” (261). Dracula plays out this moral dilemma, but the answer is categorical. There is no option. According to Val Helsing Lucy and, to some extent, Mina do not get a choice. He calls it “the curse of immortality,” in other words, something vile. In his judgment he proclaims Lucy an evil “Un-Dead” and further says, “this now Un-Dead be made to rest as true dead, then the soul of the lady we love shall again be free” (Stoker 200). Therefore, Van Helsing takes it upon himself to label aspects of Lucy’s life but casts judgment upon her life once she has metamorphosed into a vampire. He is the driver of the moral struggle against the vampires and their way of life.
If we notice in the text it is Van Helsing who convinces the others of Lucy corrupt nature after her human death. He is the one that brings to light Count Dracula’s sordid and complicated past. While the others tremble with fear and attempt to forget the past (i.e. Jonathan Harker after his encounter with Dracula and before meeting Van Helsing), Van Helsing actively tries to rehash and connect the pieces of the story. He creates the disassociation necessary for them to commit their perceived duty of murder and satiate their desire for vengeance. Jamil Khader in “Un/Speakability and Radical Otherness” states, “the band of witnesses… in killing [Lucy]… frame her murder within a theological narrative of redemption and salvation that invests her death with meaning for them, while absolving them from complicity in her murder” (78). As an avenue for the novel’s moral crises Van Helsing vents in his convictions of good and evil all the while swaying the other characters in their beliefs.

The novel focuses on “a series of passages [that] instructs readers to interpret the tale not just in accordance with a broadly ecumenical religious spirit but in particular theological terms” (Herbert 101). The ideological bent is driven particularly through Van Helsing. He is the one who guides Arthur’s hand to destroy the vampire Lucy. He rants on several occasions about the need to destroy the Count. The reader is repeatedly fed the novel’s moral structure through the eyes and mouth of Van Helsing. Herbert continues, “a vampire, declares the pious Van Helsing, nominally an advanced medical scientist but more a lay priest (and necromancer) and the book’s main religious authority, is ‘an arrow in the side of Him who died for man’ (D, 276)” (101). As Herbert pointedly points out it seems that Van Helsing is the anti-thesis to Count Dracula. Whereas Dracula is barely present and his worldview is deduced more than vocalized, Van Helsing’s worldview is vocalized and incessantly reaffirmed by guilt-inducing speeches to the other characters. He represents the positive versus the negative, thus, Van Helsing sets himself up as good while affirming the evils of Dracula.
According to Van Helsing the “Draculas… were scions who were held by their coevals to have had dealings with the Evil One” (174). From his Judeo-Christian viewpoint, anything that is different and dark is immediately linked to Satan. Herbert asserts, “the evil Count is above all an emanation of the world of superstition and an image of a terrible menace posed by the superstitious mentality to decent Christian existence” (101). As Herbert points out the push against the Count is reduced to the fight between religious external versus internal forces. Van Helsing considered all things connected to Dracula emanating from the occult. This is diametrically opposed to notions of cleanliness and purity within his Christian Belief system. This notion is highlighted when Mina Harker screams “unclean” numerous times when the Catholic wafer is placed on her forehead (Stoker 187). Therefore, in Van Helsing’s worldview paganism is not only evil but its expansion (represented by Dracula creating more vampires) is abhorrent. As the enforcer of his moral code, for we must remember that while one can barely attribute the death of one vampire to each of the other men, Van Helsing takes the lead in murdering vampires. He kills the three female vampires while holding Mina protected/captive. He also makes it clear that he would be capable of killing a vampire Mina if she crossed fully into the world of vampirism. Consequently, we see throughout the novel the religious fervor on Van Helsing’s part that allows us to see his worldview and how these notions continually shape the argument about good versus evil throughout the narrative.
Dracula embraces the narrative of unyielding religious dogma and uses Van Helsing as a god-like — in the Christian vein — figure to drive this narrative. It is interesting to note that while Helsing’s voice is prominent throughout the book, only one entry titled, “Dr. Seward’s Phonograph Diary Spoken by Van Helsing,” is really told by his voice. The rest of the events and his speeches are the reproductions of other characters. This implies that the effect of his actions and words influenced the other characters immensely. He was the great overseer of their anti-vampiric enterprises and proved to be the consolidator of the two main groups of characters the Harkers and Lucy’s three suitors. In his semi-deified role, Van Helsing pulls in all the elements needed to accomplish their goal and lords over their proceedings in a sanguine but dictatorial manner. It is evident that throughout the text his notions of good versus evil propel the plot and actions of the characters forward. He also stresses his worldview of the forces beyond logical explanation on the rest of the characters. Count Dracula serves as the obvious representation of things evil and dark while Van Helsing serves to highlight the principle of Christianity that fear paganism and strange lifestyles. Throughout the novel, we return to the othering of Van Helsing to highlight the perceived higher moral nature of his character in the representation of the contemporary British and, more so, Christian principles. In effect, Dracula is heavily imbued with religious themes and the most potent supporter and espouser of Judeo-Christian doctrine and symbols is Van Helsing.

Ampbreia's space

The Vampire







Islam is like a vampire.  It mesmerizes and/or deceives its naive supplicants who have either been forced to accept it, seduced, or bought into its lies.

The supplicants bare their throats to it; let it drink from them both blood and soul until they are drained of their humanity.

The most ardent of these supplicants – rather a lot of them – then become the vampire themselves.  The lie, they seduce, they thirst for blood, and they kill without compunction or mercy.



It isn’t just DAESH that’s so blood-thirsty.  Blood-thirstiness is a common trait of all Islamic theocracies even down to individual Muslim communities and families in non-Muslim lands that refuse to assimilate in the nation that took them in.

Like the mythological vampire, the Islamist fears light.  Figh.  Not sunlight, of course, but the light of truth.  They can not easily withstand it and still maintain themselves as the  vampires.

Figh – anything that causes a Muslim to question their religion – is a capital offense in Islam.  It’s one of a million or so excuses the hardcore Muslim has for beheading people or killing them in other gruesome ways.

Figh is what can return a Muslim’s humanity.  Figh is what can kill them too.  It’s sunlight to a vampire.

These were my thoughts when I chanced upon an Islamic forum where a Muslim had asked if Islam acknowledged the reality of vampires and asked whether or not they were haram (spiritually impure).

I laughed reading all the answers.  None of them really answered the question but I wanted to.  I refrained though.  The mentality there was child-like.  If I told them what I thought, that Islam itself is a sort of vampire, they would have been too outraged to deal with it.  They can’t handle figh.

The Golden Rule is light, figh, so not taught in Islam. It would have saved many from its evil clutches if  it had been but then that would have gone against Islam pretty much all the way.

It’s simple: treat others the way you want to be treated.  Don’t be a savage asshole by harassing, oppressing, torturing, enslaving, or killing them when they don’t happen to agree with your inculcated religious viewpoints.  Be nice.  Be decent.  Be grateful.  Don’t whine and belligerate all the time.  Be gentle and harmonious.  Kill only in self defense or defense of loved ones.

Killing for religion is terribly wrong.  It’s not nice, not decent, and definitely not harmonious.  All hands will end up turned against you in self defense as against a rabid animal.

Islam has damned itself.  I feel sorry for all the otherwise good people that will be dragged down with it when it collapses under the weight of it’s own horrifically bad karma just because they lack the fortitude or moral compass to escape it.  I hope they have the sense to leave Islam before it reaches the point of no return.  I hope they free themselves and become human again.

polymorphic creatures that are native to the Warp.[1]

History
These entities do not hold a homeworld and the reasons for their evolution into a parasitic existence within alien societies is unknown. They became entrenched within legends on Old Earth and were later regarded as being discredited myths as well as legends. However, in reality, their existence was real and they were known to infiltrate societies where they masqueraded as their chosen race and sought positions of power.[1] At some point, a Warp-spawned Vampire had risen into power on the Hive World Cephian IV. The Black Templars were known to have battled the creatures, with Helbrecht slaying the entity with this act seeing him inducted into the ranks of the Sword Brethren.[2]

Background

The natural form of a vamprie is a humanoid bat-shaped creature. However, they are able to alter their metabolism to mimic the races that they live amongst thus allowing them to blend into their surroundings. As they live in the manner of their chosen race, a vampire is not easily singled out by the societies they have infiltrated. Vampires are known to possess psychic powers that are comparable to Humans and maintain their existence by absorbing the lifeforce of other creatures. They are able to drain this energy through prolonged physical contact though are able to gain some sustenance from normal food or drink. Completely drained victims become something like zombies under Vampire control. By nature, vampires are known to crave power among intelligent races and even regard other members of their kind as a rival thus making them a threat.[1]

It is true capital is killing it! And it remains to be seen!

Capital killing, the great fear, FDR simulation, the war give rise,
The God,
Wag,
The the mongrel howls in the night
villages receede in to the vast empty canvas
All lost the pathos of Saturday night

Oh , Kerouac downtown
Hipsters took over main and 5th
Where once so old dance hall
Benny Goodman followed by bobby sox and sweet 16


Put out what's in I'm but a simple man,
But so into me,
Get go
4 get, go,
Dogful man's best wag
Watch out for the dog which doesent bark
He may have the depths of meanness
Dracula listens in the dark coffin
The castle is quiet
You can hear a pin drop.

Wag the tail
FDR simulation
A new deal in reverse,

Baalbek @ Leba on: this is no lapdog:


Baalbek, Lebanon, is the site of one of the most mysterious ruins of the Roman Empire, a monumental two-thousand-year-old temple to Jupiter that sits atop three thousand-ton stone blocks. (The pillars of Stonehenge weigh about a fortieth of that.)


As early as 9000 BC, Baalbek was a place for worship and became a cornerstone of ancient civilizations. Located in modern day Lebanon, the ruins stand tall as an archaeological wonder with towering monuments and impressive columns.Mar 23, 2017


Stonehenge is perhaps the world's most famous prehistoric monument. It was built in several stages: the first monument was an early henge monument, built about 5,000 years ago, and the unique stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period about 2500 BC.

Weird.. how some find daylight draining and others don’t, so recharging by day, and others by night.

The only good sun, is a setting sun
