This reminds me. Scandinavian trolls become petrified when exposed to light, right? Well, my theory is that comes from when travelers at night would suspect there is something behind them, turn around and see what they think is a troll in the darkness, then light or turn their torch only to see a rock or tree that vaguely looks like a troll.
A bit like this mossy fellow I saw sitting deep in the woods.

It’s all serial killers, cougars, forgotten mines/caves and opportunistic killers that are behind all of these missing people in the woods.

That being said, two times I heard my name being called while I was splitting wood rounds.

>I was close enough to the house that my wife could have been bringing me a sandwich or hot coffee.

>I glanced around me in all directions. >see nothing, I sort of held my breath to hear better.

>packed up my chainsaw, gas, bar oil and walked out the quickest way possible

I’d spend the night /out/ there if I could find another grown up to go. As crazy as it sounds, I’d like to see if I would hear anything again.

One thing I've learned with my experiences with weird shit: always go and challenge it. I know that sounds very counter-intuitive, but something happens to you when you willingly approach the supernatural. It approaches you for a reason, and although that reason is impossible to understand, you will acknowledge what it was after it's over. It's well beyond the physical, it's entirely a contest of the will.

I encountered truly weird, haunted shit twice in my life, and I ran away. But the third time years later I decided to confront it, and although it was by far the most terrifying experience in my life, I came away from it with a weird sense of understanding. And weirdly enough, I encountered the supernatural a fourth time two years after that, but then time it was very different and felt like I was being helped. I can't explain it any more than that because it was an experience meant for me alone, but just trust me when I say you should challenge the Strange.

The rate of missing persons is consistent across the civilized world. 1 person out of every thousand just disappears. If you went to a decent sized school it is likely that one of the people you went with has or will just vanished. They aren't reported dead just missing.

The scary thing is that this is consistent with high level predator and prey dynamics, solitary predators which control large amounts of territory such as mountain lions kill a similar number of lower prey species such as deer.

Very possible that an unknown species (a cryptopredator) is preying on humanity.

Objectively wrong. Cougars don't exist in alot of places. The same could be said aboot caves. Also I serial killers alone doesn't make up for the huge number of people that go missing in the woods. It doesn't explain how people go missing for days/weeks and are later found in an area previously searched, lying dead. You have no fucking clue what the cause is. Nobody can say for certain.

I guess? Weird shit I've seen was always closer to populated areas though. There was a late day/early night hike in the summer when I still lived in Hungary, I saw these shadowy things sort of gliding around in a wheat field in patterns. They were upright and a bit bigger than a person. As gay and clichéd as it sounds seen a light leave a chimney of a run down old cottage too once at the edge of a village.

Real scary shit though? Got chased up a tree by a boar after I stumbled upon it's piglets. Now that was a fucking terrifying.
>>
There are plenty of known predators which attack humans if they're hungry enough and you present an easy target. There's likely things in the world humans don't understand and may never understand. You shouldn't assume every snapped twig is big foot but don't go fucking with things you don't understand either. Most of what's out there doesn't want to interact with you and it's probably for the best. Keep your wits about you and trust you instincts. They'll tell you when something isn't right be it natural or super natural. It'll protect you from psychos, animals or whatever creepy fuck horror monster turns out to be real.

Tell us more, did you run far before you got to tree? Did it warn you first or just charge? How long in tree?
>>
>>2062650
Mhm, it was I guess. I first thought it was some dudes running around, but the movement was just too fast and, maybe smooth or continuous is the best way to put it? Not to mention it wasn't dark enough not to make out the colors of their clothes.

When I say I stumbled upon them I really mean it. They were maybe a good 2 meters away when they came out of the bush. Momma came just after them. It started making this deep snorting-belching sound. I started backing away and then it just followed. Did that for a solid 5-10 meters then stopped. At that point I was scared shitless, so I just turned and ran. Now, I don't know what kind of monkey survival instinct kicked in, but I scrambled up the first tree like a motherfucker. I swear I felt it bump my boot, but then again I tell this story to the ladies too, so after 10 years it might just be bullshit. Anyway, spent a solid hour there even though the boars left pretty fast. Broke one of my fingers and cut my forearm pretty bad in the climb too.

It's not unusual to have auditory hallucinations when being exposed to a constant, loud monotone. Especially hearing someone yell your name seems to be common. I work very long shifts in noisy bars and a lot of colleagues independently told me the same story over the years, happened to me as well.

There are things that hunt humans, just as there are things that humans hunt. The primordial fear of the dark, sharp teeth, being followed from behind etc are universal for good reason.

What you should keep in mind is that there are some predators in the animal world which cannot be sensed by their prey. Which stands to reason, if they exist for other animals, they probably exist for humans as well.

Mountain lions aren't "supposed" to live in Appalachia anymore, but they keep showing up in trailcam photos.

Anon, have you ever wondered why people are afraid of things like picrel?
People tend to be afraid of things like snarling dogs, and rustles in the darkness, because, tens of thousands of years ago, these were very real threats to ones life.
That snapping branch could very well be a saber-toothed tiger ready to chew your face off.
We're left with a fear of these things, even though the chances of being torn asunder by wildlife is far less nowadays.
This leaves us with the question of why we carry an ingrained fear of deformed faces, and too-skinny monsters.
Is it because, they too, were the things behind the campfire, in the shadows, waiting for the opportunity to pounce?
A bit of food for thought, I suppose

The effect of the inhuman human looking thing is because we used to have other human races that didn’t really like us. A human figure with non homo sapien proportions will always make you feel uneasy because if this.
We don’t like that face because it looks like a corpse, like when you look at gore and see the membrane on the inside of somebodys skull. Your body immediately tells you that that isn’t something you should be seeing of another person and that means either that there is no saving the person anymore or that you should probably immediately escape. A system with which you can tell with a quick glance if someone is beyond saving or not. Seeing a severely disfigured body has the same effect.

I've had two weird encounters. One when I was really young, probably like three or four years old. One when I was about 14.
So I have a terrible sample here.
In one case I was not developed and in the other there was a lot of real shit going on at the same time.
But if I'm going to draw conclusions from these two things I could say this about them... While they're happening you don't question it much. It's just a thing that is happening.
You ever have a dream in which you're like "wtf there's something fishy about this?" but you don't think about it any further and then you wake up and you're like "yeah, that house wasn't set up anything like it was in that dream."
I've also had some encounters that weren't actually supernaturally weird at all and they stopped exactly when I confronted them.
I was having experiences in bed that I thought were a ghost visiting me, or something. Later I learned about hypnotic states and so on: I was basically just waking up in an altered state and freaking myself out.
Deciding to confront it meant I woke up more fully and saw nothing was going on.

Monsters and folktale creatures, nah. There are apex predators, that can tear you up, but most of them avoid humans under all circumstances. Unless they're sick or wounded, and desperate.

And then there are humans. These are your real problem. While people in the wild places are few and far between, there are some dangerous ones out there, very dangerous. Not all predators have sharp teeth.

And there are bad places. If you've been out a lot, you know that there are some areas that harbor secrets from long before man walked on two legs. Angry, covetous, cruel places, where your senses lie, and your instincts whisper when they should be screaming.

Mix such places with the bad kind of human or desperate kind of predator, and that's when things get really dangerous.

Cougars exist in far more places than wildlife authorities are admitting. I live in Western Massachusetts and have seen 2 in my 49 years, and my sister and niece photographed one in their back yard.

No question they are in Upstate New York and Northern New England too.

But I wouldn't attribute them as a factor in too many human disapperances. Some, quite possibly, but I'd say the land itself is more of a factor, and worse, bad folk - other people. From back woods pot farms and meth labs to off the grid groups of unkind men who live off the land, and will opportunistically predate on other humans when they can, without hesitation.

>Cougars don't exist in alot of places.
They exist in literally every state. Just go to a non gay bar and you'll spot one in its natural habitat.

Just your friendly neighborhood Sasquatch warding you off its turf. Honestly though, that would be utterly terrifying. You mind sharing roughly where this occurred?
I live somewhere where there's no Sasquatch, but I'm really curious about them and would love to have a non-violent, non pants shitting encounter with them
I'd be interesting/terrifying to do this with high-end night vision goggles
The previous story about the stuffed teddy bear is really bizarre though
Don't know what to make of that, other than there are unexplainable things out there

>Just your friendly neighborhood Sasquatch warding you off its turf.
lol Sasquatch aren't apparently invisible though. And if it was one of those, it probably would have stopped or responded to our shouts or lights. Honestly, I'm not convinced that Sasquatch exist(ed) outside of the Alaska/PNW/California mountain corridor, and the original footage of that one in the 1960's may have been among the last of its kind.

>You mind sharing roughly where this occurred?
Yeah it was near Hannagan Meadow, AZ. It's a weird little place. Incredibly beautiful though. It's far from everything, it's the highest campground in the state, and it's one of the few (perhaps only?) places in the country where there are black bear, grey wolf, mountain lion, red wolf, and coyote running around. It's basically this strange forest sanctuary where all the wild things retreated to as mankind spread across the state. It's also right on the border of the Apache reservation, and there's bad vibes there.
>>
>>2058671
Yes those little fucking cunts that hide in the trees and throw little sticks at you. You are sitting at a campfire and get hit in the head by a small twig and then another. I usually can stand 5-8 throws before I get pissed and start throwing shit back.

>I recall briefly seeing something that resembled the Japanese kanji for "mountain"
>but I didn't have time to think about any of this
>the moment I had thrown my arm out towards it, my arm disappeared into the blackness from the elbow down
>As I "touched" it, an intense, loud, rhythmic vibration invaded my mind
>I couldn't think, it was like my thoughts were being overpowered
>my vision began to blur
>my right arm went numb
>I had enough willpower to think one word over and over again
>Begone
>I sat there locked in mental combat with this shape, trying to will it away
>the vibrations got more and more intense, but then they began to fade
>my vision began to clear, and the shape slowly faded away
>I suddenly realized I could see my room, and there was in fact light coming through the window that was obscured by the shape
>I remained there for a while, my numb arm still held in the air with my heart beating out of its chest
>I got up and turned on the lights, then walked out of my room to the kitchen
>friend was getting a late-night snack and saw my eyes
>"Woah hey man, you alright bro?"
>Yeah, I think I am. But I think I just fought a ghost.
>proceed to tell him the story
>arm doesn't stop being numb and tingly until the next day

And that's when I decided to confront the supernatural. There's a strange relationship between my second encounter in the mountains, and me briefly seeing the shape of the "mountain" kanji, but I didn't discover that until like 6 months later when I saw the kanji in a classroom at my college. And two years later, I had my fourth encounter, but again, that's something that was only meant for me. All I can say, is that I think all those encounters were connected, and what we think of as the "supernatural" may in fact be something like God's shadow. But I really can't go into any more detail than that.

That face's expression is indiscernable, and so is its intent. Until you see the unsettling grin. It has big teeth, unnaturally large, and is exposing them to you. It doesn't look specifically angry, but the grin says excitement, stimulation. And its eyes are squarely locked onto you. Maybe it sees you as food.

>lol Sasquatch aren't apparently invisible though.
They're pretty stealthy creatures, from what I gather. And you said this was at night, and you ran, and then went back looking for it. They supposedly can cover a lot of ground in a very short time. They've avoided discovery for the most part for all these years
>it probably would have stopped or responded to our shouts or lights.
That's retarded. It scared you off when it had the element of surprise, and went back to lurking in the shadows when you and the home boys went looking for it with guns. These creatures have bigger brains than us and are definitely more intelligent than humans in a lot of ways
>Honestly, I'm not convinced that Sasquatch exist(ed) outside of the Alaska/PNW/California mountain corridor, and the original footage of that one in the 1960's may have been among the last of its kind.
There are reported sightings in all 49 states in North America as well as in Canada. I've seen plenty of compelling videos/interviews from Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, the Dakotas and Alberta, just to name a small handful. Here's a playlist of over 100 videos of these creatures, though some are probably hoaxes: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2S6DQjsunycpM__z7g0TgFbzNJxz-7zH

It's a two hour documentary with like 5 or 6 cases, of course they're cherry-picked. He isn't going include boring cases in his first documentary. And I have no recollection of him talking to "bigfoot enthusiasts" unless you're referring to those hunters who tape recorded those strange gorilla-sounding vocalizations indawoods the audio guy said wasn't faked.

That's pretty much it. They hide in the trees and they throw sticks and other shit at you until you leave their territory but mostly at night and in the evening. Never seen one but I know they hide in the tree crowns so you can't see them unless iit's the trees themselves. Seems that they only live in the warmia-masuria region I've never encountered them anywhere else. Fuck them.

Birds are friends

Are a book series about people going missing innawoods. I assume in the context of this meme that the "survivor" reads them to learn about the perils of the woods.
>path along a river, walks a few steps away evey half mile
I don't get this one either.
>hums a song, makes his presence known
This is actually a useful tip for hiking in bear country because turning a corner and spooking an 800 pound grizz probably won't end well but if they hear you coming they'll fuck off. That's also why people hang bells from their backpacks.

The wilderness is dangerous for obvious reasons, away from society, no signal, your supplies are limited to what you're carrying.

However, the wilderness is dangerous on a spiritual level because you are alone with your thoughts. When Christ fasted for 40 days in the wilderness, he was accosted by demons. If you think some fat dude achieved enlightenment, siddartha guatama sat under the boddhi tree alone and was also confronted by demons. The demons are able to tempt you in your everyday life with sloth,wrath,pride,lust,etc.

When the demons see you quite unbothered and more or less at some kind of peace, they rush to tempt you. that is why people have paranormal encounters in the woods.

Seems to me you've never experienced a paranormal encounter. I've had strange and frightening encounters in the middle of the suburbs during the day, and encounters with other people to witness it. The encounters I experienced, and like many others, has absolutely nothing to do with temptation and more to do with abject fear for your life and sanity.

You want my take on it? And this is based on personal experience: I think *most* of what is the "paranormal" is something like God's shadow. I'm talking things like ghosts, "demonic" experiences, unexplainable things, etc. Not like Bigfoot crap. If Bigfoot is real then it's just an ape ancestor that didn't bother inventing language or tools, and not something paranormal. In the Bible, God himself says that he is both darkness and the light, and many other religions which assert a singular God have very similar passages to the same effect. I think what we're talking about is that darkness. All power ultimately flows from God, as it was God that created the universe and thus all things were touched by his hand. Fear and destruction are not necessarily bad things, because good things like joy and creation would not exist if their opposites could not as well. How can you be motivated to do something if the possibility of failure and suffering didn't exist?

I have no idea for what reason or purpose some strange and frightening things happen to some people, because God is ultimately unknowable, but I believe there is a conscious will and intent behind them, and their effects extend beyond the lifetime of a single person.

Hey now! I'm African American and I camp away from campsites. Last trip was up in Washington State Park, just south of St. Louis. Hiked about 20 miles from an official campsite and setup a small stealth camp. Third night out, I broke stealth and made a fire. Heard what sounded like a bobcat, but that was really the only mammal I saw, besides a few squirrels and rabbits.

The abrahamic religions are clearly anti-city.

I just thought thats a big fucking fox. Then realized its a wolfie. He fucked off and didnt bother us, later in the tent I heard him take the same route back. We were sorta camping on his usual track I guess. This is Germany btw and because there is a village almost every 100 meters woves are kinda rare.
