The slenderman myth is fake. Apparently, the story of slenderman has been changed up so much to the point where there is not a consistent story of what slenderman is or what he does with his victims. There's a picture of "slenderman" from 1990 online, but people are saying that this myth started back in 2009. Regardless, of when it started it's not real. People have a better chance of believing in Chucky or Jason, atleast those stories are consistent from movie to movie.

That's just my opinion of this slenderman myth.

Yep, at time we do have threads that seem to go on longer than they need to but such is life at UM.

No way should this topic be closed! We are witnessing something awesome happening here…

An image from the mind of one person which grew to become a MEME (an idea/behaviour that spreads from one person to another within a culture) is now becoming LEGEND (a narrative of human actions that are perceived both by teller and listeners to take place within human history regardless of whether it is actually fictional or non-fictional).

We are witnessing how people’s experience of the “unknown” is culturally determined, how there is often no difference between belief and make-belief, and how a legend’s history can be created after the fact.

In many ways Slenderman has outgrown its actual origins and has literally taken on a life of its own and anyone is able to contribute to, and even alter, its fledgling LORE (accumulated facts, traditions, or beliefs about a particular subject). Slenderman is at the cutting edge of liminal human experience!

The evolution of Slenderman should be of immense importance to those of us with an interest in Bigfoot, ghosts, aliens, etc. Here we are in a privileged position to witness how such legends are born, grow, altered, and experienced virtually right before our very eyes (hooray for the internet!)

Essentially we are witnessing how it is possible to create via pure imagination what others will then perceive and experience as real.

How cool is that?!?

Hmm... maybe there is something to this Slender Man myth.

Posted Image
Slender Man "operator symbol" claimed to have been photographed in an abandoned house in Ireland that was previously home to a wealthy Anglo-Irish family that abandoned the estate for reasons unknown sometime back in the 1960s.  Source for said photo is unknown and is claimed to have been taken in the mid-1980s and to have been recovered via local photo and video archives by a reporter looking into an entirely unrelated matter.

Posted Image
What is claimed to be the only recovered frame from a recovered video camera found by forensic investigators at a site (Louth Hall, Co. Louth, Ireland) claimed to be a significant source of local paranormal legends involving a slim tall boogie man type figure superficially similar to Slender Man, portrayed as a graffiti inside a room within the supposedly haunted Louth Hall.  The source of this image is claimed to be a local paranormal group doing an "investigation" sometime in the mid 1990s.  This image is claimed (but I don't believe it) to be the only recovered frame from video tape supposedly found recently.

That's interesting!

Night Walker: I agree. Keep the thread open. :D

Here is a thought: Because of the tupila effect, it is possible that every detail, every story, and everything we say about this "not true" entity, we are the cause of the problem. Therefore, we ourselves are causing more pain, suffering, people dying, expecally innocent children. So, soon our little brothers, our nieces, our children and those around us will soon be dead. All because we contributed to the tuplia effect.

If you're going to reference it, spell it right. Please!

It's not trupila, tupila, tupla or tuplia

It's TULPA!

You have spelt it every single way on this thread apart from the correct way.  Get it right, please!  I'm not even an advocate of the concept and I know how to spell it.

How the is it possible for someone to be so familiar with a concept yet spell it incorrectly on every single occasion that use it!

Trender Man
Trender Man is described as the sassy brother (sometimes referred to as a cousin) of Slender Man with a crave for fashion and clothing, wearing brown fashionable attires with a white shirt underneath. The photograph, representing a shop mannequin with no visible face, was taken by Tumblr user Conjured Charisma, was posted on his blog on July 31th 2012 and was entitled Slenderman’s casual Friday.

In which case you can help stop killing our little brothers and nieces and children by not talking about it.


So why are you still talking about it?

It was necessary writing that one post so that we would all stop talking about it I guess... :tsu:

The supposed video evidence is Blair Witch Project stuff. Highly creative and low cost. Awesome!

Every culture (including our own) has multiple bogey-figures. Slenderman is the latest. Bogeys are not real but the fear of them is and that is their importance. Our fears manifest themselves via the human experience - imagination interacting with environment whilst spreading socially.

To understand the significance of Slenderman we should try to understand its similarities and differences to other cultural bogey-figures. By doing so perhaps we can influence the fledgling Slenderman lore or, better yet, create our own bogey for others to experience as "real". T'would be an interesting social experiment, would it not? Who's in?

And if you are concerned about the ethics or morality of doing so then just keep an eye on updates of the Slenderman Death/Injury Toll...
