Episode 25: Tulpas, Thoughtforms, and the Slenderman

"Death scares all of us. Even the most faithful with religious certainty still holds doubts about what lies beyond the grave. Death is the end, even if you believe in an afterlife." -The Knight Hello again and welcome to Cryptic Chronicles. This episode is all about the esoteric nature of tulpas and thoughtforms and the possibility the entity known as the Slenderman has possibly been granted sentience and crossed over into the real world through the power on the internet. Or is it possible...


Episode 24: The Great Old Ones

Good to see you again. In this episode, Tim is joined by Gabriel Fuentes to help co-host a long talk about the Eldritch horrors known as the Great Old Ones from the Cthulu Mythos. There are so many of these madness-inducing entities that we barely scratch the surface, but it's interesting to see just how varied and quite frankly bizarre they can be. The backbone of Lovecraft's Mythos is the philosophy of Cosmicism, in which can be defined as us living in an uncaring and indifferent universe...

Episode 22: Aokigahara (AKA Japan’s Suicide Forest)

Once again Tim is joined by the wonderful Elizabeth Henderson to talk about the notorious Suicide Forest. For such a dark topic, we take a more lighthearted approach so as not to bum people out. Still, there is a lot of dark stuff in this episode, so it's not for the faint of heart. If you are easily disturbed you should probably avoid this episode.


Episode 21: Shadow People

In this episode of Cryptic Chronicles, Tim is joined by Elizabeth Henderson, an admin from the Cryptic Chronicles Facebook group to talk about Shadow People. Just who or what Shadow People are is up for debate. Are they delusions of the mind? Or are they interdimensional entities that feed off negative emotions like fear and depression? This conversation is a brief overview of the phenomenon and how it's viewed by different people. There will be many more episodes on Shadow People to come so...

Episode 18: The Outer Gods

In this episode, we're going to delve into H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulu Mythos featuring the Outer Gods. Cosmic Horror is an important sub-genre of Horror, which can also be defined as Lovecraftian Horror, Eldritch Horror, or Cosmicism. Cosmic Horror is heavily influenced by the philosophy of Existential Nihilism, and Philosophical Pessimism, with a consistent theme of madness to those who view what their minds aren't ready to comprehend. In Lovecraft's mythos universe human beings are entirely...

In this episode, Tim talks about the Smallville actress Allison Mack's recent arrest for human trafficking and being a leader of a modern-day sex cult. But don't worry because it's going to get even stranger. The meat and potatoes of the show is about MK-Ultra, the U.S. government's twisted brainwashing experiments on their own citizens. However, it's the experiments alleged later incarnation, the Monarch program that Tim will really go into detail about. Whether it's real or not though we...


Episode 14: Polyphasic Sleep

This was probably the most challenging episode to make ever. It goes into much detail about an alternate sleeping schedule called Polyphasic sleep. Human sleeping patterns used to be very different when compared to modern times. Did you know the monophasic 8-hour sleeping schedule is actually not natural to us? Well, there's much more interesting things to learn about sleep in this episode. Here are some links to the books referenced in the show as well as At Days Close Nights...
