Re-Blog: Tulpas, Thoughtforms and Monsters, Oh My!

Monsters and Magic

John_William_Waterhouse_-_Magic_CircleThis is a blog that I wrote back in 2013 but, given some of the rumblings about thought forms I have been hearing on-line, I thought this was a good time to re-post it.  

I am an inveterate podcast listener. The job that puts bread on the table can, at times, be very repetitive, requiring little in the way of thought, so I often spice up my day by listening to one or the other of the paranormal podcasts on the Web. The other day I was listening to an interview with the noted paranormal author, Nick Redfern and the discussion turned to the place of tulpas in monster lore. I realized, as I listened to this show, that while I had referred to these beings obliquely in some of my posts, I have not dedicated a post to this subject.

Everything and Nothing

​This thought of nothing and everything and just the conscious act of noticing it, makes it reality. I approach it from the angle of, what was before the beginning, the big bang, the all of creation by God or aliens or…the emptiness or nothing of before anything no matter who or what started it. Was there a true nothing or is that a real “place” as well just because it can be thought about if not understood? We do know that in the quantum world, an object observed is an object changed or forced into a choice. So our awareness of a thing, creates it, micro moment by micro moment There is nothing real because it is ever evolving and at the same time all is real because we make it so by perception….consciousness. We don’t have the tools for the job…we are attempting to use three dimensional, physical machines to detect “nothing” or everything. Can’t find the nothing for all the everything that’s in the way.

The Tulip Staircase Ghost (1966)

“Rev. Ralph Hardy, a retired clergyman from White Rock, British Columbia, took this now-famous photograph in 1966. He intended merely to photograph the elegant spiral staircase (known as the “Tulip Staircase”) in the Queen’s House section of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. Upon development, however, the photo revealed a shrouded figure climbing the stairs, seeming to hold the railing with both hands. Experts, including some from Kodak, who examined the original negative concluded that it had not been tampered with. It’s been said that unexplained figures have been seen on occasion in the vicinity of the staircase, and unexplained footsteps have also been heard.” (

The above photo is one of my favorite anomalous pictures. There is something so melancholy, so desperate, so tragic in this figure’s abandoned gesture. If we are to take this as a true representation of a…
