Immortal Vantage Point

Vampire Bat: Yes, it is the Immortal Vantage Point that all of us here possesses.

Interviewer: I don’t get it. What on Earth is that?

Vampire Owl: Okay, I will explain it to you. Do you see that electric post outside this castle?

Interviewer: Yes, I do see it. What is special about it? Why is it leaning towards one side?

Vampire Owl: Most of the vampires who go out to hunt with an Immortal Vantage Point end up not seeing the post and hitting it. Until this date, the vampire team has hit that post forty nine times. We are hoping to score the half-century tonight itself. It is the difference between your vantage point and the immortal one.

Vampire Bat: What? That was so negative. They hit that electric post because they are sleepy most of the time and it is the first electric post you see when you get out of this castle. I am sure that if we switch off the generators, you will hit that post too, as the power is supplied from the station only for a few hours every day.

Interviewer: Then you owe me and the readers an explanation.

Vampire Bat: Well, you know that we have all evolved from the mortal side very long ago. We had many ways of seeing things, and it has been changing through the ages. We have lived most of our lives with almost no social contact until Uncle Dracula found us and united the vampire brethren in this castle. I had the Vantage Point of the Bat, he had the Owlish Vantage Point, and so did the other members of our vampire team. They looked at things differently, and according to the mortal existence of their species, never really seeing things as the immortal vampires that they have been.

Vampire Owl: Vampire Crocodile still sees things with the vantage point of Dr. Hannibal Lecter. This is his third vantage point, and it is dangerous to have him with us. I told you.

Vampire Bat: You don’t need to say bad things about other members whom you don’t like. At least he has a stronger vantage point, and Hannibal himself is immortal too. Also, we are united in vampirism. We are the same at heart and in the mind.

Interviewer: So, you were united by the uncle under one vantage point. Can you explain further?

Vampire Bat: Yes, Immortal Vantage Point has been something special. We always had a part of the same attained the moment we became vampires. But we realized it very late as we were afraid to let go of our mortal existence which we thought was still our identity. But it was not the same anymore. Things had changed, and our immortality had replaced our previous existence and had given us another perspective. We needed a guide to explore the same, and it was Uncle Dracula.

Interviewer: Okay, but what is the point? What is the advantage of having this particular vantage point?

Vampire Owl: I can make the point in a shorter way. Have you seen chaos? We see that each and every day. We look at humans from the Immortal Vantage Point and the only things that we see are vanity, hatred, envy and pathetic lies. They are provided so many religious texts and still they haven’t learned. Some of them claim that they can have morality without religion, but that is pure nonsense. None of them got any love for the other.

Vampire Bat: You are making a point again to take over the world. No, the Immortal Vantage Point is not that simple. To be frank, it is not a vantage point as humans see it. You can call it a skill, or a vision. We get to see things from a point which you can never accept. We get to see things as neutrals and also as people among you. We become you, not in blood and bones, but as the life force of your soul. We can’t do it for each person, but we do create a group with the particles from each person’s soul and use a ripple effect to influence a better result.

Interviewer: I am confused. Is this even legal? This is not listed in the vampire powers as I have read in books and noted down.

Vampire Bat: It has been officially added to the list. We are actually conducting spiritual experiments to discover further possibilities.

Interviewer: I think that this will be enough for today. I would like to move to my vantage points without any distractions.

[The interviewer leaves…]

Vampire Owl: I think that he just hit that electric post.

Vampire Bat: How can you be so sure?

Vampire Owl: He looked more confused than we are.
