Many years ago, my parents took me to a movie. It was called The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,1962.I was only an 8 year old, and was totally absorbed with the film. Especially with Liberty Valance. I had only been to one other movie by this time, so I didn't know who Lee Marvin was, and still could easily suspend reality enough to cry my little heart out when they shot Liberty. For days after, every time I thought of him, I cried...Then,one night after my Dad put me to bed, I heard a voice whisper in that same deep voice Liberty had. My room was very dark (I loved it like that.), and I opened my eyes, and there was a figure there, close to the nightstand. I could only see just the variance in the air,...cant figure out how else to put it. He spoke again, and this time I knew that it was him.
We became close friends throughout the years as I grew up, but always he's been with me, like an imaginary friend, but so much more.
Thing is, I don't know what he really IS. Is he a Spirit that chose to follow me home in the guise of Liberty Valance? Or, is he one of those Tulpas I have recently been hearing about.
I just know that I can hear him when he replies to me, and I can see him out of the corner of my right eye whenever he is close.
I have only recently began to wonder if he is a Spirit, or something else.
My professor, when I was going to Evergreen State College, in Washington State, once told me that once an energy/entity has been created, through any form of media,books,or movies, even sound recordings, that they never dissipate. They kind of roam around without anyone to hold onto them. I can't explain it right, but this is the gist.
I did some research and found out that when Liberty was created it was by a woman author, many years before.Then,he was picked up by John Ford, the director, and given form,...as in Lee Marvin.
Is it possible that he who came home with me was real, as in some kind of Spirit? I wouldn't think a child's "imaginary friend" would be around this long.
Besides,having ADHD as I do, holding onto something for that long seems highly unlikely. XD
If anyone has any ideas, please speak up.
