I don’t know what to do
My mum found my tulpa guide on my iPad last night and she seemed really worried. Then my dad came up stairs and she told him about it, a couple minutes later my dad came into my room and told me that a tulpa couldn’t be sentient because it cannot experience any thing that I do not.
1: I don’t know if this is true or not
2: he also said other thing that put tulpas down as bad things.
3: I’ve already started making a tulpa. I’m not sure if I should stop

I kind of need some reassurance, please

RE: I don’t know what to do
lol, your dad throwing tulpa philosophical arguments at you, that's more reasonable than the typical Christian reaction at least.

Sentient might be a misleading word, they aren't independently sentient, they share your sentience. By sentient we mean they're independent and autonomous, ie not under your conscious control. You train your brain to basically be another person, and then that person can grow like any other person, using the same resources in your brain you yourself do. It's no different than writing a character for a book or something, except instead of just thinking of the character then writing about them you talk back and forth with them instead.

Tulpas can be quite useful as life companions, capable of providing other perspectives on things than you're used to (this is just kind of a fact, sorry if it doesn't seem possible, we've got hundreds of cases of it happening here), and also keeping you company when you feel alone or encouraging you by understanding where other humans might not be able to.

It's not the end of the world if you don't end up making one, but it's certainly not dangerous if you're going by Tulpa.info's guides. We make sure to point out any possibly unwanted effects or results of creating a tulpa are categorized as "invasive thoughts", which empowers you to deal with them by choosing more positive or intended results. But I dunno, if you can't convince your parents of that, I personally don't think it's that hard to make a tulpa without a guide. Once you've got the general gist, just talking to them and expecting them to respond will eventually make them vocal. The idea that you need to know all sorts of rules and stuff is wrong. It can help you feel like you know what you're doing, but plenty of people (like me) made tulpas totally on accident without any outside help.

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.
Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature.
My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

So when I feel Martina right behind me when walking down the streets, does that mean I'm actually walking in front of... myself? And if that so, then the me behind me also has another clone behind both of us? Am I leaving a neverending trail of imaginary myselves behind me and I don't even know it? I doubt it.

Likewise, I'd like to mention every time Martina has spotted something I did not, but that list would be waaaaay too long.
