We create our own mystical creatures with our own minds. If you see it, it is strictly through the power of suggestion. Your own or somebody else's.

See, that's just it.. we do know. Creepypastas are fictional. It's like saying "you never know" about someone seeing Stokers Dracula. We do know, because Stokers Dracula is a fictional character. With Ticci Toby, it's a fictional character that's a spin off of another fictional character- like how Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a spinoff Angel, or how Walking Dead has spun Fear the Walking Dead.

No hating, just honesty. Didn't realize this was a matter of literal belief for you. Rather thought that given the emote you gave with your response that perchance you were playing Devil's Advocate there.

But if you stick around and check out some threads, you will find there is a whole spectrum of beliefs here on UM from the most ardent believers to the most critical skeptics and such.

Are you seriously going to leave because someone challenges your beliefs? Seriously? If you stick around you might learn something.

I completely agree with this explanation for sightings of Slender Man, the Hatman, and similar fictional characters.

I believe in individual and mass manifestations, created both psychically and psychologically.

A similar thing to a Thoughtform.

I do too. But I try to post things that are proven fact. I like to keep my opinion on spiritual matters to myself if possible. It's a Indian thing

I came out of the 'spiritual closet' many years ago, and I don't see any point in shutting myself back in. :lol:

No one has to believe anyone on here.

But we don't know one another in real-time so nobody can prove anything.

I mean a lot of sightings of any kind of fictional or paranormal creature have their origins in

Yeah I mean there's a lot of evidence about folklore affecting people to the point of people thinking or hallucinating encounters with them. And since Creepypasta is modern folklore it would not be outside the realm of possibility for somebody somewhere to imagine/hallucinate/dream up an encounter with any of the various characters that populate them, especially once a character reaches well-known status, such as Slenderman or the Rake.

If we want to go into other, more far out theories we could consider manifestations/glimpses of beings from other planes of existence being influenced by our subconscious. Like, if we consider that a possibility, there would be the further possibility that somebody, for whatever reason, is able to briefly perceive a malevolent creature/being/entity from outside the physical realm, as the brain struggles to process something that's normally not perceivable by poor humans it might draw on familiar concepts that correspond to that malvolence. A religious, christian person might "see" (process the perception) as Satan while the brain of a UFO enthusiast might translate it into ideas of an "evil" Reptilian from the Moon and someone who reads a lot about Creepy Pastas might get the idea that they have encountered Slenderman.

I wonder how many people who see (for example) Slender Man have never heard of the story.

Apparently, there have been people who have had sleep paralysis type encounters that were Vader-like.

I've seen plenty of slender men. Slenderman, on the other hand, is entirely fictional.

I'm not aware of any actual Slenderman sightings myself, only people saying that there have been Slenderman sightings. The idea of people seeing Slenderman in real life dates back to the original (fictional) Slenderman stories as a way to make them feel more real. Are people mistaking this 9 year old fiction for reality or did a real person claim to see "Slenderman" at some point?
