RE: Is there any movies about tulpas?

The movie "Inside Out" has something that is kind of like Tulpas.

[SPOILERS for Steven Universe] Pearl is a Multiple System?

So, if you've watched the two new Steven Universe episodes . . . it's probably just a stylistic choice to portray Pearl's layers of personality. But I find the idea of her being a multiple fascinating- my sister raised a theory that every time a gem (or, more specifically, a Pearl) regenerates, a new level of consciousness is created, that are autonomous from each other. 

Of course, it may be dissociation and multiple personality formation from trauma, as well. But that is still a Multiple System, just a differently generated one.

It's kind of unrelated but once i saw fluorite (6+ gems) I could not look at her without thinking of a multiple system.

Not specifically about Tulpas but the premise is similar.

Yeah, I mean for fusions it's very obvious, but Pearl is a single gem, so that's why it was such a surprise. 

I do like the detail of Fluorite speaking very slowly, because she has to integrate so many minds. It's a nice touch.

Video  RE: Is there any movies about tulpas?

I wouldn't say I can think of any movies, per say, but I did get introduced to the term by a game I really liked watching a playthrough of, 'Hello Charlotte' (Episode 3).

(I wouldn't call it a great representation though, considering it was a pretty toxic relationship..., I'm glad it led me here, though).

&%$^ ninja! That one. 

I am getting a kick out of all the "no, no, that's not Tulpamancy, just MPD/DID." comments. In my experience these things are not mutually exclusive. Wink

They very much are, although in the context of saying "Hey, that's sort of like a tulpa" about things, I'm not sure it applies as much. There's still a difference, but most often in media tulpa-like things aren't really trying to be one or the other and so fall somewhere between. Or just as entirely its own thing.

Hi, I'm Tewi, one of Luminesce's tulpas. I often switch to take care of things for the others.

Vinny of Vinesauce knows what a tulpa is, I guess! ?

didn't go in-depth or anything but still cool!

also uh, language, binyot shwears

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.
