The Cold Dead Stare


You should consider that you are rather fortunate to be given these glimpses into the workings of my mind. Ordinarily you are unable to peer into the dark mind of my kind and me.  As an empathic individual you do cultivate an ability to understand the way that other people are thinking and how they are feeling. It provides you with a degree of intuition and this is applicable to many of the people that you meet. You apply this ability for the purposes of doing good things and I understand why you do that. Notwithstanding this ability, however, it does not work with us. You are unable to establish what is going through our minds or what we might be thinking, no matter how desperate you are, to be able to do this. This is because we do not abide by the normal rules and conventions of everyone else. We do not travel on the well-worn path but instead we take those routes which are far from the beaten path. These routes are tangled, unmapped and dangerous and they are so designed to prevent others from following us down them. We do not want you to know what we are thinking.

This is because we have no desire to convey to you any advantage in seeking to escape our effects and make it harder for us to obtain fuel from you. We must cloak our minds and make them impervious to your attempts to read them. We must operate through secrecy and covert behaviours so that you never see us coming, so that you never know what will happen next and so that you have no opportunity to evade us. Not only do we shroud our minds in this manner through our rejection of logic and the adoption of behaviours which are outside those considered normal, we also ensure you cannot read us through our eyes.

Many people look to the eyes as a device for gauging what someone might be thinking or perhaps more accurately feeling. If we are explaining something to somebody and we see confusion in that person’s eyes we know we must adopt a clearer method in our explanation. If we are conveying some news and see a pained expression in those eyes we know (if it was you making the comment) to alter the manner in which it is expressed to make it less painful or to do or say something to offer support. Of course, when we see it, we merely increase the pain in order to extract a reaction from you.

This weakness of the eyes in allowing another person to gauge how someone is feeling and therefore ascertain what they are thinking is not something that we can countenance. This is vulnerability and we do not like vulnerabilities at all. We have enough to contend with, without allowing you to see what they are. Accordingly, in order to ensure that our mind is impervious to your inspection we will either adopt a cold, dead look in our eyes which renders them impenetrable or we will simply reflect back at you what you are feeling and mislead you. When we adopt that cold stare, it may be designed to induce a sense of dread in you but it has a primary purpose. This purpose is to create a shield so that you are unable to ascertain what we are thinking and thus our plotting mind is secure from external influence and can proceed in its scheming. Should we reflect back to you what you are showing to us, we are doing this to mislead you, but also again to prevent you from having any chance of understanding what is going on in our dark minds. Our minds are the core of our operations. Our minds control everything in order to achieve our aim of securing fuel and as such, this most precious of devices must not be compromised in any way by people like you and your meddling.

We must ensure that our minds are ring-fenced, cut-off and protected from your attempts to read us. Should you be able to do that then you will be taking away one of our advantages. We know what you are thinking and we know what you are going to do next because you are an empath and you not only wear your heart on your sleeve but you wear your mind there as well. Your eyes allow us straight into what you are thinking and feeling. Your mind may as well be transparent or broadcast its thoughts onto a flat screen for all to see. You are easy to work out and study, hence why we choose you. A similar fate must not befall us and this is why we ensure at all times that our minds are impervious to your penetration.

  1. This what the somatic lesser gym rat did at the gym. Gave me the ” The cold stare”

    Why do narcissist have blank cold empty stares, HG? Almost as if you guys have no soul.

      Please see the article The Stare.

      1. Again, spot on, HG.

        You are indeed the best source to go to, when it comes to learning about narcissist.

    2. I almost felt like he was bullying me. His eyes would not unlock with my eyes at all.

    I’m glad I read this I was going to bypass it. Thank you. I thought it was an article with a different name “The Stare.” Equally disturbing no doubt this article is new to me and uncanny. This explains a lot.

    For the empaths a valuable skill is to learn how to mirror the blank stare. It comes in handy when u are trying to avoid fueling the narcissist. If you focus on your own breath your body will focus inward, on itself,and not show as much emotion outwardly. Try it. It’s simple meditation. Our greatest weapon against them , if you have to be around them, is self awareness. It confuses, disgusts and seems to wound them at times so beware and be safe.

    HG do you mean you choose our kind beacause we ARE the most predictable and unvailed kind?
    Do you maybe compare us to an already read book?

    Isn’t there anything that sometimes surprises you a bit beacause it goes out from our typical behavioural schemes?

    Are you ever attracted to a mind that you find interesting a part from the fact of gaining fuel?

    Can you also consider that when we look into your eyes we can maybe see and feel something that you don’t even know about yourself?
    And this because we are empaths while you are not and most of all because you don’t want to know but reject yourself?

    A question if you do not mind….
    When you receive your fuel it causes you to feel high, right? Can that high be compared somewhat to that of being high on drugs? Is that what causes the change in eye color? That is the only thing I can think of as to how the eyes can look so different. How lovely brown eyes become black and empty.

    There was a moment that I recall while intensely kissing him. I opened my eyes for a moment to see how he was reacting to me (I guess you could say it was one of my tests, I wanted to see if he was giving his all to me) and he had his eyes open which was surprising. However they were black and empty, like he was somewhere else. It was a vacant and dead look but the blackness, I will never forget it. I called him out on it but rather than address how his eyes were different looking (the blackness) I asked why he was kissing me with his eyes open.

    But anyway back to the black eyes….does something change in the body or mind that causes eyes to become black like that similar to a drug high?

    I guess I wonder about the opposite effect too. The mirroring nonsense. How can I tell after the fact if I am being mirrored? Or will be just always mirror as he is not real has nothing real to show?

    I hope my inquiries make sense.

    Instead of a cold dead stare, I hope you are having a cold glass of champagne, HG. Congratulations on reaching over 9 M I L L I O N hits !
