Crypto-Criminology: The Gothic Nature of Crime

Crypto-criminology is the dark, devious, and dangerous side to human nature. This is a humanistic proclivity which crosses the borders of civility and into brutality. This is “practical crimeology” which can be applied to real life. Human behavior is difficult to predict and profile. This investigation takes us to the darkest depths of human depravity and to the damp gloomy dungeons mental mayhem. Modern science does not have the ability to provide a useful, efficient, and effective explanation for all possible outcomes. This area of discussion is full of allusions to myth, magic, and metaphor. It’s, in one sense, the exploration of human evil with all its manifestations. In another sense, cryptocriminology aims to unravel the mystery behind why criminals commit crimes. This is an evaluation of criminal behavior in order to understand the disturbing landscape of human deviance which encourages criminality. Modern explanations include the study of the influence of “gothic metaphors”, in literature, movies, and other mass media. “Crypto” is a term that refers to the hidden and secret, as well as the unknown. The primitive and primeval ideas of human nature are also referred to, much like the word “gothic”. The world of demonic influence, psychic werewolves, and dreams of death. This subterranean world of monstrous meanings and vampiric violence, as well as cunning cruelty.

Cryptozoology is a term that refers to closely related areas of study. It is often used to refer to the study of missing or unknown “animal” life forms. We can extrapolate from this that “crypto”, which refers to the mysterious, hidden and mysterious natures of living things, could be made. In this connection, we also have the elements of understanding, studying, and explaining unexplained phenomena. This notion is relevant to the field of criminalology. We have many schools of thought. None of these schools of thought offer satisfactory explanations. This has led to a misguided social policy, public confusion, and a failed application of the criminal justice system. Contemporary society is caught between fact and fiction and has to rely on illusion and fabrication.

Truth becomes intertwined with untruth and metaphors assert their presence to stumble upon clear-cut rationalizations. It is more difficult to understand the crimes committed by people the more we label, profile and define them. The quest for the mysterious nature of human beings follows the mystifying paths of bizarre events, baffling occurrences and sinister acts of debauchery. “Crypto,” in particular, seeks to understand the macabre mind. This includes event selectivity, primal existence and criminal causality. Premeditated decisions are made to commit crimes. Even the most horrific acts of violence can be planned and executed with unique logic and rationality. We are shocked, shocked, and horrified when these things happen. Perhaps it’s because we can see ourselves in violence, aggression, and destruction. This is why crypto-criminology can be seen as a mental tool to study deviant behavior. As a result, it is possible to cause injury, trauma, and even death. Investigating the complex, mysterious and perplexing nature of criminology reveals the seductive connection to gothic ideas of legend, myth, and allegory. It is not necessary to say that the mysterious, dark, and shadowy mental process behind human behavior remains elusive to many fields of “pseudo science”.

Particularly, the nature and purpose of evil is not clear-cut or predictable. It is still obscured by myths, magic, and daydreams. We look at alternatives at multiple levels in order to address practical criminological problems. Avenues of the chase are characterized by premeditated, ill-advised capers that take place on the fringes of the exotic and supernatural. Or, preferably the ever-expanding realm of “crypto-criminology”. These brain processes are engaged in an endless war to balance the battle between good and bad. In the hazy illusions of psychic aberrations, myth, magic and metaphor all surface. We act as we think. It is human nature to know, feel and act. We also fantasize about the sensations of our imagination. It can be taken from one dimension to the next. It can be lifted out of your psyche and into the real world.
