MEETING THE PSYCHIC VAMPIRE
THE BEAST has always been with us. For as long as our hearts have pumped blood, for as long as our souls have glowed with life, for as long as we have yearned for love, the beast has always been there. Sneering and stalking, drooling and scheming, it licks itsfull, soft lips in anticipation of its next warm meal. For the beast is essentially a feedingthing. Oh, yes, it has many faces, all of them human, and it has our endearing manners aswell. But those human graces are a camouflage born of necessity-they are the disguisethat enables the beast to prevail. Beneath its veneer of humanity, the core of the beast ishunger, and survival is its only goal.The beast hungers for survival, but not for life, as we know it, since life implies thewarmth of a beating heart and the light of a shining soul. The beast has neither heart nor soul. It has only a. clever mind and an insatiable hunger. To survive, the beast mustappease its hunger, and it can feed only on the thing it lacks-the essence of life. So the beast must prey upon us, the living. It must suck our lifeblood and drain our force.If we are lucky, we will merely die. If we are less fortunate, we will succumb to thedeepest horror of the beast's predation, which is that most of its victims will not die.Instead, we will become the thing to which we have fallen prey, and we will be compelledto feed in the same parasitic way. Thus the feeding frenzy spreads, swelling into a bestiallegion whose progenitors haunted prehistory. The beast is ancient and global andgrowing. It has many stories, and shapes without number, and all are like shadows elusiveand dim. But the name that we call the beast itself is clear and cold and precise. We callthe beast
vampire
.The story of the vampire is as old, as tangled, and as evil as any on earth. Our contemporary model for the vampire is the beast whom we call Dracula, so I will beginmy storytelling with Dracula's tale. But first I must warn you. Do not be deceived intothinking that Dracula's truth is the only truth of the vampire. Do not believe that the luriddetails of blood and fangs and bats and garlic are the sum of the vampire's existence. For if you believe that these bits of lore can capture its essence, then you are in danger of arming yourself against only the literal incarnation of the vampire and you risk fallingvictim to another kind of vampire––the one who can infect and exhaust our souls.Dracula himself tells us that he is only one member (and certainly not the last) of a vastand ancient race. Now consider this: the creeping thing that we call vampire in English-and French speaking countries is called
