Real vampires are not pure fiction

The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.

Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.

Since this may also result in pain receptors working harder, we would be more sensitive to types of heat and other forms of pain. Explaining sensitivity to sun and loud noises. The body naturally creating endorphins to counteract pain would naturally adapt and produce either stronger endorphins or endorphins at a higher rate. This would result in a higher control over pain in the long run.

While that would be the results of a nervous system that has become more efficient, it probably sounds like pure fiction of it happening. However if you look at what happens to ones body when they are about to fight, with the sudden increased strength, it makes it seem more possible. As for regenerating as well, as cuts and bones healing in seconds, you’re on your own. Then again I can’t think of a vampire movie where one re-grew an arm or any other body part.

Normally our autonomic nervous system is in a constant balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic. The former basically says, prepare for a fight, the latter says, take it easy and relax. Personally after my change I’ve been consciously aware of that going on and am wondering if this is the case for other real vampires.

When we are about to fight, the sympathetic takes over and norepinephrine (adrenaline) pours into the blood, causing the circulatory system to be affected. Blood gets transferred from the skin and viscera to the brain and muscles, causing paleness and muscles to become strong. The extra blood going to the brain causes us to think quicker. The increased production of red blood corpuscles, allows for quicker coagulation, as well as quicker and deeper breathing. The blood also leaves the different digestive organs while being rushed to the brain and muscles. This results in cessation of digestion. With the power of the Internet this is easily looked into and confirmed.

If we, as real vampires, were in a constant state of that, seeing that a good portion of our body would feel the lack of blood it does make sense that we would feel the constant need to get blood from an outside source to feel reasonably normal. Plus with that lack on a philosophical jump of logic we could say that any blood that we ingested would be immediately drawn into our body, much like a dehydrated person’s body quickly puts any water they drink to use.

Ingesting blood, absorbing blood when a vampire drinks it. Every thing you eat touches a lot of places in your body before it reaches your stomach. It hits your mouth, tongue, and virtually every muscle in your esophagus not to mention depending on if you’ve eaten recently enough or eaten to much food it will wait in your esophagus for a short amount of time. There are a lot of chances for blood to be absorbed long before it even knew your stomach existed. Making stomach acid completely irrelevant, as for recognizing blood I’m pretty sure the body knows what blood is.

If you think a vampire or even you can drink blood without that blood or part of it being absorbed in to the body before it reaches the acid in their stomach. Then do the simple experiment of drinking about an ounce of blood from a person that has AIDS, and then go get tested for HIV three months later. If you do that experiment, you will test positive for HIV. It is a retrovirus as well as being a part of an infected persons blood. So that little experiment will double as a way to show how easily ingesting blood that contains vHERV works when being changed in to a vampire. As well as the fact that anybody can absorb ingested blood without it ever reaching the stomach.

That is the most logical explanation I can come up with for the idea of vampires being smarter, quicker, stronger, slightly faster healing, paler, and more psychically aware. The following endogenous retrovirus belief is the most logical I have heard as to why us real vampires exist. Though it is highly controversial, the people who call it fiction have much more far fetched explanations on what causes real vampirism, which is why I accept this explanation and not theirs.
