Basic Law of the Spirits

After a few times watching Japanese mythological horror films and anime on spiritualism, gods and demons, I came to a conclusion that I will never fully understand them, because they don’t quite follow the same ‘Law of the Spirits’ as other Folk Religions in Mainland East & Southeast Asia.

Anyways, here are my “Laws of Spirits” growing up and living in several different Religions, ranging from Medieval Taoism to Buddhism and Folk Religion from East Asia and Southeast Asia.

    Humans can be possessed by ghost & demons. In the old days, when a human committed murder, people said that they were possessed by a spirit monster (Tiger spirits, fox spirits, Hollow Woman, etc.) and that would explain why a human would commit grave crimes and/or cannibalism.

    You take on the form of how you died. Especially ghost, either human or animal. However, you can take on a more “demonic” form, depending on how wretched and impure your soul was. You could have long tongues, backward arms or tilted eyes, from the probable cause of your wretched soul being combined and altered by another demon. People who were evil in life, could be condemned to look like the monster they were in the afterlife.

  3. You can reincarnate. Depending on cultures, some say you can reincarnate into a beast or animal. In my case, you just reincarnate back into your family clan name over and over again.
  4. image Too much time with spirits/ghost, can make you sick. A lot of those mediums, taoist priest, shamans, oracles, etc. etc. become who they are, because ghost and spirits are attracted to them, so they become very very sick often. In some cultures, they are shunned, and in others, they are accepted and praised as high as doctors.
  5. imageCover your face when you enter the Spirit World. Ghost, spirits, gods and monsters can follow you back to the Human World and make you sick. So often, people who go into the Spirit World, would cover their faces with cloth or put on mask when they enter the Spirit World, and become “Possessed” by Gods or their Ancestors Spirit, to speak to people for guidance.

    You can become a ghost. Not a spirit or spirit monster. When you die, your human soul needs to be guide to the Spirit World to reunite with your ancestors, and eventually reincarnated in the later future. However, if you lived your life that was unhappy or unfulfilled, you can become a ghost and haunt the earth, searching for whatever you were looking before.
  7. You can become a spirit monster. But like I have said, it usually considered as a Possession. In this case, humans can turn into “Funeral Vampires” (A man was accused of being a Funeral Vampire, because all his wives he had died young, leaving him lonely and bitter, turning him into a Funeral Vampire) or “Tiger Demons” (If you committed murder). Same with zombies, where evil spirits will infest an unburied body (probably a person who died in the forest or w/e), bring them back to life and eat human flesh and raid villages.

    Spirits & Gods already exist. They take forms of trees, plants, rocks, mountains, rivers, sun and moon, etc. etc. Even your front door, your fireplace, backdoor and kitchen.

  9. You can never destroy a Ghost/Spirit. The movie, “The Grudge” makes a great example that no matter what you can do, you can never get rid of it. You can remove all the water from a lake, but water will always still be around. You can banish it, but you will need a place for it to go.

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.
Probably the 2nd most popular style of homemade #Pho I’ve seen and grow up with. It’s Chicken Pho, where your momma is too lazy to babysit it the whole day, so she throws everything in it. It is literally called, “Stupid People’s Pho”, because of how quick, easy and cheap it is to make! :D

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.  
She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”

The term BAMF was coined for such persons. 

Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?

Yet another story I would like to read.

You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
