Vampire & Energy Work Research Survey

An Introspective Examination Of The Real Vampire Community

 

Authorized Edition v1.0 - 22 March 2006

________________________________________________________

 

Purpose & Significance:

 

The Vampire & Energy Work Research Survey is conducted by the Atlanta Vampire Alliance [AVA] with support from various Houses and elders from the vampire community.  This survey will address questions about the vampiric experience which have consistently been brought forward as concerns, either by members of the  Community or by outside researchers in the professional or academic sectors.  We have divided these concerns into the eleven topics which comprise the focus of this survey.  We see these recurring questions as evidence of a need, felt by outside researchers and Community members alike, for a larger body of reliable knowledge about how vampires describe their personal experiences of dealing with their condition.  We will attempt to gather data regarding these issues by researching specific cultural, physical, psychological, and emotional conditions that actually exist as written and reported from a vampire perspective.  To this end, we intend to directly address these concerns: we will examine the different traits associated with the vampiric condition from feeding habits to psychic abilities; we will examine who vampires are, their backgrounds, educations, and religious or spiritual choices; we will gather data on how individuals experience their personal vampirism and how they experience the vampire community; and we will distinguish the differences between real vampirism and the role playing phenomenon.

Our goal is to provide this data in a comprehensive printed and digitally available analysis to the community as a resource for our deeper understanding of modern vampirism.  We anticipate the results will provide a strong basis of fact and theoretical framework from which to dispel the popular misconceptions held by the public community, and highlight the flaws in the conventional theories of the scientific and academic communities regarding their frequent treatment of vampirism as both a cult and a dangerous practice.  We hope that with the data gathered in this study available to the scholarly community as well as the vampire community, the questions that scholarly professionals have posed about us may be addressed from a solid factual base - the experiences reported by actual members of the Community.  Furthermore, we intend to apply the raw data collected from this survey to several ongoing studies.  The results will provide us with a statistical insight into the commonalities shared among real vampires and assist in identifying traits that may commonly occur in the public population but are misdiagnosed or dismissed.  Using the census aspect of this study we will be able to evaluate the concentration of vampires in major metropolitan areas and throughout the world.  This will permit us to highlight pockets of vampires that exist but may be under-represented in the Community.  We will also be collecting personal family heredity information that will aid in establishing the frequency of vampirism throughout different generations and possible consideration of genetic inheritance theories.  While this study employs a concurrent triangulation strategy, the qualitative aspects of our research will allow for a case study examination that covers the primary spectrum of beliefs and opinions held by the vampire community.  The potential knowledge this survey may provide to the vampire community merits an extensive networking effort to gather support and participation.

In the pursuit of this goal, we believe that we are following in the tradition of, and building upon, the earliest efforts of members of our Community to share their experiences with each other online, on websites, forums, and in person discussions.  The goal then, as it is now, was above all to help one another understand our experiences, and to enrich our Community's understanding of itself.  While conducting this research we are committed to remaining neutral and abstaining from controversial rhetoric that could be viewed as biased.  As researchers, we recognize that we have a responsibility to be both fair and thorough in serving our community.  This is ultimately an effort by the Community, and for the Community, which we hope will also reach beyond our boundaries, to be a body of knowledge from which outside scholars can draw when trying to understand the reality of our lives and experience.

 

Ethical Considerations:

 

All involved with this project are deeply concerned with the safety, well-being, and happiness of the members of our Community.  We believe that this study will be of aid to the Community as a whole, to help us understand each other and our situation, and to allow us as a Community to answer the analyses of outside researchers in our own words.  This study will also benefit the individual respondents by providing an opportunity for reflection and examination of their unique individual experiences.


Participation in this study is completely voluntary; members of the Community who choose to participate should do so in order to further the Community’s knowledge, and should use their own judgment to decide whether participation is a positive, safe, and healthy activity based upon their own individual circumstances.  Any participant may remove themselves from the study at any time, and may also ask questions of those administering the survey via anonymous e-mail for the duration of this study.

We are concerned with the safety and well-being of our Community members, and therefore acknowledge that for some individuals participation may put them at some form of risk.  Having this survey in one’s possession, accessing the URL of the online version, or being observed in the process of completing the survey may cause risk or harm to some individuals from those outside the Community.  Participants are the sole judges of their circumstances, and we encourage participation by only those Community members who feel that their situation will not be adversely affected, either emotionally, physically, economically, socially, or in any other manner, by any aspect or stage of participation.

Privacy Considerations:

The enforcement of privacy and ethical standards while conducting this research is paramount to all involved with this project.  We wish to make the smallest footprint on the Community as possible in the distribution of and collection of data from this survey.

No response that yields information which could be used to locate or personally identify respondents or other members of the community should be given at any time.  We will vigorously safeguard the privacy of our participants by employing various security measures to ensure complete anonymity.  All form submissions completed online will be processed over a secure server, results stored offline, and no internet protocol addresses (IP) will be kept via an online log.  Participants may also choose to safely submit this survey from an anonymous e-mail or by postal mail.  Only raw statistical data collected from this survey in coded form will be made available to the general public once an internal review and analysis has been completed.  After the cessation of this data collection all responses will be stored under lock and key in a secure location, never to be shared with other researchers or persons outside of the administrative body involved in this study, however, the aggregated data from the study, as well as analysis of that data and conclusions drawn from that data will be made publicly available.

If the survey is submitted online the participant will receive a unique seven digit code that may be utilized to remove their survey from final data analysis if chosen by the participant.  If the participant completes this survey offline or via e-mail we ask that they write a random seven digit series of letters and numbers at the end of the final question under “exclusion option” so that the same consideration to privacy exclusion may be exercised as mandated by various international standard codes of ethics and institutional review board guidelines.

Definitions & Precedent:

As an extension to the theory defined in this mixed methodology study we will attempt to explain the viewpoints of real vampirism rather than propose a controversial “universal” definition that would ultimately serve to exclude certain participants in the community.  We recognize that claims of what comprises “true vampirism” or “living vampirism” varies to an almost infinite degree within the Community. However, generally there are universal characteristics shared among the majority that we hope will temporarily unite those who hold differences of opinion while completing this survey. Only the individual understands his or her own vampirism, path, and code of ethics and therefore, should answer all questions out of respect and in accordance with their own personal beliefs.

A vampire is essentially a blood drinker or an energy feeder that may display various levels of psychic ability.  The vampires that are the focus of this study are individuals who cannot adequately sustain their own physical, mental, or spiritual well-being without the taking of blood or vital life force energy from other sources; often human. Without feeding (whether by a regular or infrequent schedule) the vampire will become lethargic, sickly, and often go through physical suffering or discomfort.  Vampires often display signs of empathy, sense emotions, perceive auras of other humans, and are generally psychically aware of the world around them.

The supernatural, mythical, or vampire of popular romantic literature will not be examined in this study.  While we will discuss the other more metaphorical applications of the term “vampire”, (psychological, clinical, criminal, blood fetishists, autovampirism, energy leeches, non-vampire lifestylers, or roleplayers), these are not the central focus nor should be used as a basis by which to answer the majority of these study questions.

The following section represents the various categories that relate to the modern classification of vampires as defined by feeding method.  Terminology is haphazard and problematic within the Community, and the attempt is made below to acknowledge alternative spellings, and identify distinctions (some of which are controversial) which are made by some Community members.

The most common and universal distinction made within the Vampire Community is the distinction, based on feeding method, between Sanguinarian and Psi Vampires.

Sanguine Vampires (Sanguinarian) feed by the drinking of blood - either human or animal.  Sanguinarian vampires can vary in their experience of blood hunger and in how often or in what quantities they need to feed, but the unique craving for blood and the physical symptoms associated with neglecting to drink blood are unifying features of sanguinarian vampirism.  This term is commonly shortened to sang. Not all members of the Community actually acknowledge the difference between psychic and sanguinarian vampirism, and there is a popular but not universally-held theory within the Community that the life force energy or “prana” contained within the blood is the source from which they feed, rather than any physical component of the blood itself.  This theory is supported by the notably small amount of blood that vampires consume to alleviate their hunger, but challenged by the fact that vampires who consider themselves primarily blood drinkers often do not display as many or any of the psychic tendencies that psychic vampires do, and more often report more physical symptoms, such as sense acuity and physical strength, than do the psychic vampires.

Psi Vampires are understood to feed psychically on life force energy.  Psi (or psy) feeding is usually performed on a willing individual or from the ambient energies of a large group or crowd.  This term is often mistakenly confused with the pop psychology use of “psychic vampire” or “psychological vampire”, used as a metaphor to describe specific socially manipulative behaviors.  The most common usage within the Community, however, does not include this metaphor.  Psi vampire, refers to a vampire who feeds by some manner of energy transfer; this term may also be shortened to psivamp.  Psy vampire, and “psychic vampire” are sometimes considered synonyms for psi vampire, but are also sometimes employed as separate terms with distinctive meanings.  For example, “psi” is often employed as a synonym for ESP phenomena in parapsychology, and “psy” is short for either “psychic” or “psychological.”  Those who make distinctions between these terms may use these meanings as the basis for their reasoning.

Hybrid or Psi/Sang Vampires claim to have no primary feeding method, being able to feed from either source at any time.  Others report changing their primary feeding source from energy to blood, or vice versa, at various points in their lives.  Some, but not all, vampires who can feed or have fed via both methods choose to describe themselves as Psi/Sang or Hybrid vampires.

Some Community members go further to define sub-classes of vampirism based on the detailed methods and sources of psychic feeding.  These classes are most often distinguished from one another based on the type of energy gained.  Those who feed from natural or elemental energy, and those who feed from humans either during sexual contact, during magickal rituals, or during times of high emotional output may be described as specific types of vampires.  Further subcategories of psi feeding energy exist, including terminology to describe those who feed from direct contact with the human aura, those who feed from the ambient energy of crowds and public places, those who can only absorb certain kinds of emotions, etc.  While we respect individuals' choices of self-description, untangling the definitional problems surrounding these distinctions is beyond the scope of this study, and for our purposes, only the distinctions between blood drinkers and energy feeders will be addressed, with some attention given to the primary psychic source of psi feeding.
