What is about the unknown that lures us in? Is it the feeling that anything
is possible or the point that we can create anything we want. What I mean to say is that something being unknown allows us to invent anything and everything we want to surround it, whether it be complete nonsense or complete fear. Take for instance the example of the one of my favorite subjects. The black eyed children unknown urban legend. We have no idea if they are what they are explained to be like let alone if they are even real and not just something that someone decided to make up for a story to haunt people. We are told that the black eyed children are children that appear at random and they are indistinguishable from regular teenage children except for 1 discernable trait. They have pitch black eyes. They come to your door in the evening and night and ask random questions such as may we use the restroom or the telephone just to gain entrance to your establishment. Not much is known about the people who
actually let them in to do these things but the ones who do not allow entrance and say no are completely terrified because the black eyed children continue to try and gain access by asking the same questions over and over again, and seem to appear wherever you are in the house. What I mean to say is that if you leave the front door and go into your bedroom the next thing you will hear is a knock on your bedroom window and the same question as if they can see through walls and know exactly where you are. Anyways the point I am trying to make is that the phenomenon of these black eyed children is very much unknown so anyone can invent scenarios in their minds eye of what they are,, who they are, what they want and what could possibly happen if they do enter your home. This in my opinion is what makes the concept of the unknown so fascinating because we can
bend and manipulate how we please.
