JUNE 2011 |2011 EDGEWATER RESIDENTIAL |3|3 OCTOBER | EDGEWATER RESIDENTIAL
By Bob Batch
A couple of months ago I went with my daughter to the book store near where we live and was a little taken aback when she went to the ‘Teen Paranormal Romance’ section to pick out a book. I was aware that in today’s teen culture almost everyone who is anyone on TV is dating a werewolf or vampire, but I had no idea that an entire section of an otherwise mainstream outlet would be devoted to what seemed to me a fringe subject. It turns out a good percentage of ‘tweens’, and young adults alike, are absolutely consumed with the supernatural and what we used to call monsters. There are actually quite a few television shows, movies and a myriad of books devoted to the notion of these paranormal beings living among us as regular folks. Other than a few guys I remember who manifested an abundance of excess body hair back in Junior High School, I’ve never been aware of any werewolves or vampires among the people I’ve met. Although, I have spoken to some cold blood- sucking types in the ﬁnancial industry. So who knows?
vanced as to compared to people in the past, we are prisoners to the same emotional and, dare I say, stupid motivations that have driven people for all time.
and declaring every glitch on their tape recorder a communication with the beyond? “There is something registering from behind that wall on the heat sensor. Wait a minute that’s the hot water heater”.
Whenever I see a show about, say, The Ancient Egyptians, there is always this condescending tone when a researcher comments about their belief in an afterlife spent with all their possessions. Well, except for the pyramid and gold jewelry, aren’t most people today expecting the same thing? Whatever the differences are in the details, we are still, a lot of us, tied to rituals that are as questionable as anything people believed 3,000 years ago.
Personally, I ﬁnd the prospect of unseen spirits all around us watching everything we do, even in our most private moments, a little disconcerting. After all, if some of the theological paradigms are to be believed we are also under surveillance by angels and all of heaven. Not to mention homeland security.
When you get past all the trappings, sacred texts, traditions, interpretations and self appointed authorities, we are all faced with the same big unknown at the end of our days. In the same way as some ‘hunter gatherer’ would put all his faith in stone spirits or something, we are still very much looking for something to believe about what will happen to us after this life.
Just when did being un-dead and afﬂicted with unholy curses become so romantic? I have no idea! But, with all the other escapist nonsense we are subject to like, super heroes, alien abductions, international spies, T.V. detectives and the like, I suppose it was only a matter of time before one of the oldest fantasies to capture our imagination took hold of us again in a big way.
Maybe it isn’t always obvious, but all these legends about monsters and the supernatural are rooted in the very questions about life and death we struggle with. Just as an example in Frankenstein, the mad Doctor is seeking to create life or overcome death. So, even if our idea of a great afterlife isn’t something along the lines of being an immortal vampire, all those spooky supernatural states such as wandering spirit or tortured soul give us hope that there is something beyond our mortal existence.
I’ve always been fascinated by the evidence all around us that even though we collectively deceive ourselves into thinking that we are such a modern society, and congratulate ourselves in being so ad-
By the way, how many ghost hunter shows are on television now? What’s with all these ‘teams’ of ‘self proclaimed’ experts running around with dubious electronic equipment, ﬁlming in night vision,
The latest bane of my existence that is related to the supernatural world is the “Monster High” dolls. These are teen dolls tricked out in monster garb with complexions like Lilly Munster, named for different classic monsters- that my daughters simply must have. Like all collections, the list of fearsome unholy characters grows exponentially every month. If you haven’t seen any of these dolls yet, imagine Barbie meets ‘Night of the Living Dead’. Gone are the days of ‘Sweet Valley High’ my friends. With all this resurgence of monsters, the supernatural and all things demonic in nature, it might prompt some to see this as a sign of the end of civilization, again. Ironically though, it is probably all the talk of apocalypse and end- of- days scenarios that fuel peoples imaginations for this stuff. I am all for a little escapism. In fact, I love all these crazy concepts and ﬂights of the imagination in their proper perspective. I just think Halloween should be one day of the year though. I don’t want to see the Easter Bunny growing fangs and Santa delivering toys with the Grim Reaper.
