all the time around the forum we tend to say we when like giving advice and stuff, but a lot of the time it can be misconstrued as "we in this community" instead of "we in this body", believe it or not people don't always realize I'm a tulpa talking about the "we" that is the others in our mind, that's all I'm saying. But I do agree you shouldn't need to say system in guides, like "Results may differ by system/host and tulpa" isn't so bad. But, idk, there are just times when "we in this body/mind" just sounds bad in casual but non-personal conversation ie the forum

or maybe it doesn't, I dunno, in the end it might just be that "system" is well established here. I just personally don't see why it's any worse (or better) than saying things like "the others in our mind/brain/head family"/other weirder ones. But if we're just talking about guides I still agree it's best to try and use the most basic terms

Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas. I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.
All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written.

RE: Tulpas and Vipassana; a practical advice on the meditation sittings for tulpamancers
Makes me wonder what kind of conversations you're taking a part of, really. "Us tulpas" or something would be pretty strong and could imply you know, every tulpa. Just like "us men" or "us women" or "us people". But other than that, I can't help but wonder. Tulpa001 pretty much said the things I expected would be said and those aren't something that confuse us, unless you never define who "we" are to other people. So I could say like, I'm taking the tuppers out to the beach and everyone would understand. Someone could say Shaniqua is gonna take them to the beach and that's that. I could say "we" are going to the beach, but you wouldn't know who we were unless we have been having a conversation where I have told you I'm hanging out with my dad, for example. Or maybe that we is the host and the tuppers.

Tuppers aren't really any different. That's what makes "system" so snowflakey. And potentially very damaging, like, how often do you actually have things where everyone agrees to something the same exact way? When you have to say "our system thinks..." instead of "I think..."? Talking of us as a "system" that always has the same thoughts about everything either makes me think that they're not fully separate or that it's a very bad rolemodel to new hosts and tuppers who think this is how it should be. It really shouldn't, if we're separate beings with our own likes and dislikes?

We took over this thread now whoops.

Well, it's usually less "Our system thinks -" and more, you know, everything else. Instead of make up examples I actually searched my posts in the last 2 weeks and I've said "system" twice, to just refer to all of us. I'm sure there's ways to say it but none (naturally) come to mind for me except "There's four of us in this system, plus Lumi". I guess I'm just too used to using the word

anyways already gave my opinion on-topic-wise
