Samura's Fire Ability
Where does Samura's ability to use fire come into play. Shouldnt the corpses be burned instead of water sogged? Anyway, check out my thread about her being the devil; the fire thing comes into play too, I suppose.

Re: Samura's Fire Ability
Where'd you get the idea that she has any kind of fire ability?

And also, flies are also usually associated with rotting. They eat rotting flesh, remember.

Re: Samura's Fire Ability
I am confused, where is the ability of fire mentioned, I believed that the corpses were exemplars of a heightened state of fright coupled with dramatically accelerated decomposition.

Dont you remember her burning the image of the tree into the wall of the barn, and burning all that stone in the well?

Re: Samura's Fire Ability
Samara doesn't have "fire ability"

it's called Projected Thermography.

Remember when Noah finds those x-ray style images of like the rocking horse with a horses skull, the tree, the one with screws/nails going into a body, and others?

If you read very quickly when the doctor holds them in SM0015, it says "Projected Thermography" on the images or a folder.

Hence the question "How did you make these pictures Samara?"
"I don't make them......I see them in my head"


She sees, then they get thermally "burnt" onto film.
Ala the cursed tape

OMG, the wall of the barn is not film. Did you even listen to my post. THe film has nothing to do with it. She burns the wall, she burns the well, she burns aidens hand, she burns rachel's hand. How long could I go on with this? And FYI, none of those mediums are film.

Re: OMG
Whoops, my bad.
I mentioned the projected thermography, but forgot to use it in the context as you pointed out (the wall, the well, Rachael's hand).

Damnit dont I feel dumb.

Heh, thanks for the kindness towards a newbie. It won't be forgotten :D


Just a question, is projected thermography an actual recorded 'phenomena' if you will ?
All I can find is that Themography is a process of writing involving the use of heat

That raises a neat theory...
When you're around 8 or so you tend to draw much more then write, hence Samaras prjection of images as opposed to words.


I'd like to know if this kind of stuff has actually happened before. And then learn how to do it :D

Psychicness and other weirdiness
I dunno the only paranormal class I know is remote viewing, kinda like psychicness, only it costs $1300 for the first basic class and $200 for the advanced classes, where you can supposedly find out your destiny and change it by knowing what decisions you make and stuff like that

Well, without being too semantic and cryptic, Samara's ablity to burn the imagery on to different media and create burn like marks on victims is probably related to radio signals and electro magnetic radiation, which connects readily to television broadcasting. Just conjecture, but I think she uses these waves much like a microwave oven, only she can send a confined broadcast signal to a target like a maser: a focused microwave beam. Here the waves could be used to "heat" an object with an image directly like on film, skin or a wall and as a tight beam communications device sending messages to electronic devices where their circuitry recieves and transmits the information as she desires. That said, I really have no other explaination, its not pyrokinesis like Charly from Firestarter, its more like a directed energy weapon, like a laser or particle beam.

I have heard of those that were gifted with the skill of psychometry and could expose the images they saw onto photographic film. I don't know how true those claims are. The only one I ever knew that beyond a shadow of a doubt was psychic was a college friends mother who was skilled in psychometry. She could pick up an object and see the last person to touch said object in her mind, she also could see what they did 5 minutes prior to releasing said object, know some intimate details about you like your fave color and foods, what you like to do with your free time. It was remarkable seeing her do it. She didn't do it very often since she was no longer in her hometown of Alabama where she was accepted in doing that, she didn't want to alienate anyone not accustomed to her abilities. Sadly she passed away just before the end of 2000 from a long battle with cancer. So there could be a psychic format much like Samara's I dunno.

You say psycho like its a bad thing!

Re: Prodigy knew!
yes, and it's called nensha. our dear sadako had the same abilities ;p consult the faqs if the term is making you stare at the monitor crosseyed.

i have a hard time arguing with the palm marks on the arms of those that are marked, but sadako did the same thing in the original and there was never any reference to her having any sort of physical burning abilities. all we really know is that both of them had nensha (the making of the tape and images on film in the hospital), telekinisis (the mirror scene on the cursed tape, the spinning chair on the remake's tape), and the look o' death (accusational reporter in ringu, doctor in remake). i wouldn't put it past her to have extra abilities, but they're not exactly discussed, other than the tree burnt into the wall underneath the unmarred (other than being torn) wallpaper. if samara did indeed have this extra power, that would indicate that it wasn't really a flaming burning ability but more of something that probably effects objects on a molecular level. if it was just plain firestarter stuff then the wallpaper would have been crisped up in a second and there would be no unwrapping of the present that was the wall.

the actual tree was never on fire, it was symbolic of how the tree's leaves would make the tree look as if on fire at sunset. a pleasant memory to keep with her when locked up in the barn i suppose. i know the scene was shot with the actual tree on fire but i'm guessing that they didn't like the way it looked and used the cg flames instead.

Nicely put, Miharu ;)

Nensha....This one word (two put together in fact) actually can explain and put to rest a large number of newbie questions about Ring.

You know the literal meaning of the Chinese characters in nensha? Nen (thought) and sha (to write). 'Writing thoughts'...
