Psychology of Sang Vampirism
I'm often curious how the occult fits into our understanding of science. I don't believe that there is anything innately supernatural, so much as there are things which we simply don't have all the evidence for. In short, if something interacts with the natural world, it follows some set of rules, and a set of rules that humans can comprehend given time and study. This said, after a bit of study of the phenomena of Sang vampires, I've come to a few conclusions.
1) The sang is, biologically and physiologically exactly the same as any other human being, down to hormonal levels and RBC count. I came to this conclusion based off of interviews with numerous Sang vampires who reported visiting a doctor and the doctor not being able to detect any difference between the sang and any other human being.
2) It is an energy in blood which is required, not just the blood itself, though the blood is indeed necessary. In short, there is no biological or physiological need for blood itself. This is further supported by the fact that when the components of blood are taken into account and taken separately, there is no benefit to the vampire. Iron pills do nothing more than they would for anyone else, and old blood is even flat out discouraged as being less beneficial to the vampire.
3) Lack of blood causes withdrawal type symptoms (headaches, fatigue, nausia, depression, lethargy, obsessive thoughts of blood, and in more extreme cases migranes, tremors, ect). Drinking blood also brings on a rush of energy at the onset.
4) It is not energy alone which is required through blood, as I've run across a number of sang vampires whom know how to feed psychically, but find that it's less fulfilling than feeding on blood.
This leads me to the following conclusion. Sang vampirism is at least partially, a psychological addiction to blood. the withdrawal symptoms and rush of energy seem to be (excuse the expression) the nail in the coffin. Any comments, contrary evidence, alternate hypothesizes or anything that can help me shore up my argument would be greatly appreciated, I'm curious to see what you think.
I'm not closed minded, you are just wrong. Be open minded, but not so much that your brain falls out.
Correct my spelling and I'll stab you to death with my car.
