Fox The Rebel
Fox The Rebel is a chaos magickian, necromancer and dark pagan currently living in Wales. Born and raised in the East End of London, and growing up with tales of Spring-heeled Jack and the Highgate Vampire, Fox found himself fascinated from an early age by tales of the macabre, especially those purporting to be true. After series of personal experiences with the paranormal led to him spending most of his adolescent years studying the occult and magickal arts, Fox realised that it is not enough to simply practice in the shadows, which led him towards the use of social media and blogging platforms to defend the right to believe in subjects that have been forbidden for centuries by zealots both skeptical and religious, as well as a mass media who seem more interested in sensationalism than the truth.
As the owner of RebelWithoutASoul.Wordpress.com, Fox maintains a staunchly independent position within the wider occult paradigm, bringing to the attention of a global audience not only the actions of those who have placed themselves in a position of direct opposition to his magickal way of life, but also numerous articles and short essays covering a variety of related fields. His Twitter feed, @FoxTheRebel, regularly shares web and video content in a similar vein, as well as personal opinion on a selection of odd topics, the paranormal and forteana. Above all, Fox lives by the axiom that you must stand up for your beliefs, or die for someone else’s, and finds that as true today as it has ever been.
Accordingly, Fox finds the Highgate Vampire an intriguing case on many levels. While, as a modern magickian, he remains open to the chance that there is an actual flesh and (stolen) blood vampire haunting the area, he is more inclined to believe that a tulpa or thought form is roaming the cemetery, empowered by the very minds who seek to hunt it down. Also, Fox has eloquently argued that the case which was brought against David Farrant regarding his involvement with the media circus surrounding Highgate Cemetery amounted to little more than a latter day witch hunt, based on the prevailing social and religious views of a period when ghost hunting was a new and generally unacceptable way to spend your time.
