RE: Tulpaudcast!
Hey! Just finished listening to the whole thing and it was amazing! Some of the episodes were more awesome than others. Like the one with Vampire because Vampire is amazing. (10) (And I'm not just saying that because I was mentioned in that episode. But also the guest on episode (3) had the most interesting things to say, and insights on plurality.

(Just wanted to ping you because I have some questions about your interview below)

Hey Jean-luc, getting back to you like I promised on R/tulpas. Haven't been able to get through all of them, but I wanted to leave my thoughts on the ones I've been able to listen to so . 

For me, the enjoyability varies heavily episode to episode. It totally depends on your guest, but not even in the ways that matter. I think they all walked into the interview expecting you to do some research into their background. Instead, you read off the same list of bad questions for each interview. The best interviews were the people who realized this and took control of the interview, instead directing it into areas they cared about. The worst interviews are the ones where they chirp back answers for your bland, unpersonalized questions. 

Jean-luc, as an interviewer, your job is to ask the questions that you already know these people spend their time pondering the answers to. That's how you build a great discussion. Do your research and figure out what those topics are. That being said, you know when to shut up. And I mean that in a good way-- you keep the spotlight on the guest whenever appropriate. You never interrupt or force your perspective. You go into these interviews genuinely wanting to learn more about these people. Keep those things up Smile 

To future interviewees, go into the interview already knowing what you want to talk about, and figure out how to get there during the interview. Have both a core message and 3-5 points / stories you want to hit. Jean does a great job (most of the time) once the interviewee gives a clear idea of where they want to go. 

Below, I'll bring up my comments, questions, and concerns on the most interesting episodes. 

First off, your discussion with Glitch. 

Glitch, did you end up getting that psych degree? How did that Research paper on Buddhism end up going? You say that you would research tulpas if you were able to fund a study, but that you don't even have the money to run a few surveys. How those would cost money? After all, thanks to the eagerness of this community to be scientifically understood and accepted, every attempt to survey the community has achieved a high response rate, despite offering no compensation.

You also imply that none of the benefits experienced by tulpamancers are unique to tulpamancy, that the same therapeutic effect can be achieved by role play or something. I don't understand this either. Tulpas are documented to help with lonliness and mental illness due to them being psychologically independent companions. Does roleplay help with this too? Unless you mean roleplay as an alternate means of tulpa creation, in which case, they're still tulpas. My study found that tulpas had these benefits even if the system did not practice meditation and had no relationship to the community. And even if Roleplay has the same benefits, that doesn't dismiss or delegitimize the benefits of tulpas. 

The one part of your discussion of researching tulpas that I did agree with was the fact it would be difficult to get your university behind it. To get funding and IRB approval something as a non-professor, you need a professor to greenlight you, and professors are hesitant to greenlight anything outside their area of expertise. There's 2 tulpamancy expert professors in the world, so unless you're at McGill university (Veissiere) or Stanford (Luhrmann), good luck. I'm still working towards it though. If anyone wants to research tulpas anyway, check out this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/Tulpas/comments..._go_do_it/ 

Second off, your chat with Vampiric / the Brimstone system

This had me and my gf laughing hard a few times. Ivy and Raven kept ripping on your shitty interview tactics, and it was hilarious. 

I enjoyed learning more about occult perspectives of tulpas, although the episode would have greatly benefitted from a more concise conduction.    

Third off, Fede

Oh God, where do I start with this one. This is going to be my go-to cautionary tale, highlighting why tulpas are best at helping us improve our lives, not escaping from them. Everyone with a shit relationship to their family will understand and relate to what he went through. There's considering your tulpas / online people who love you your "real" parents, and then there's straight up deluding yourself and erasing all memories of your genetic relatives. Fede experimented so we didn't have to. RIP Fede systemmates. 

All in all, great guests, hope you continue to improve as a host (in all meanings of the phrase). I'll plug a short bio in applications if you'd like to chat sometime ^^

RE: Tulpaudcast!
Thank you so much fordaplot. It's nice know someone does actually listen to these casts, not just some robots accidentally downloading them. Furthermore, you've given me some great advice that I will certainly incorporate it (as best I can) into the next episode. I've done bits and pieces (sometimes it's simply a matter of lack of effort on my part), but your quote "ask the questions that you already know these people spend their time pondering the answers to" is really well-put, thank you.



FYI, Quoting someone doesn't notify them, you'll have to PM Glitch if you want his attention specifically.

RE: Tulpaudcast!
I was worried that I was too harsh; I'm happy you took me feedback well <3 Best of luck in future podcasts; I'll PM Glitch.

I took that bit of advice from Tim Ferris, whose podcast is one of the best in the world. It'll serve you well ^^

I've finished the core requirements for my Master's degree in psychology, currently writing my thesis on mental telepathy. The Buddhist psychology guy wasn't taking any students when I joined the program, so I decided to work under the telepathy guy instead and it's been... probably slightly easier than trying to write a thesis on tulpas. One of the reasons they told me I couldn't is because you need at least five published journal articles to write a thesis, and to my knowledge there were only two or three that had been published 2 years ago (all of them by Dr. Veissiere). Currently Luna and I are thinking of revisiting the topic for our doctoral dissertation if I go on for my doctorate, otherwise we just want to finish up my master's so I can get a job (and so she can write the book that she wants to, but that's besides the point).

As for the benefits... I haven't read anything stating that tulpas specifically provide some advantage over other forms of psychological therapy. Of the professors I've talked to about it, the consensus seems to be that it could be better than placebo, and might even be easier than doing roleplays/able to achieve the same result with less effort, but unless we can show that it has specific advantages over other methods it isn't worth using it with clients. My personal experience has been that it allows me to reap the benefits of other interventions at significantly less of a time and money investment (for instance, having a tulpa that can biohack is more efficient than doing it yourself, because they appear to have a better understanding of your mind's inner workings, and by proxy, those of your brain as well), but there's nothing that only a tulpa can do, except maybe love you unconditionally which most humans are incapable of.

RE: Tulpaudcast!
It's weird to talk about tulpas like a "method of therapy". You know, for depression (usually "Situational" I think), just having supportive people around you is recommended. But you wouldn't call making friends a method of therapy would you? Because that's how I see tulpamancy, just a different way of finding people to support you.

Unless you do consider specifically trying to get someone to make friends to support them a 'thing', then I guess tuppers become an even more complicated thing.

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.
