  1. Rebuilding the search index for This may take a little bit, and searching may not work as expected until it's finished.
  2. Plugins disabled for the time being. Please stay tuned.
  3. 68.....thousand...replies.... That's awesome.
  4. I posted this in the discord, but also posting it here. To perform some troubleshooting with Invision Community on a bug, we need to disable all of the plugins and themes for a short amount of time (ideally, less than 2 days). Here are the plugins that we are using: Welcome PMs Contact Us Linked Accounts Post Numbers Antispam We'll also end up with the default Invision Community theme, but I'll set everyone back to the dark theme when I restore the plugins. I'll try to do this at a time that isn't too disruptive, and in the next couple of days. Thank you for your understanding. Pleeb.
  5. Not working for me either. Seems to work incogneto... I'm opening a support request this weekend.
  6. Yeaaah, but I'm afraid it already got buried lol (page 6595, reply #65949 in case links act weird)
  7. If I had a whistle emoji, I'd post it here.
  8. So as always, I forgot a post. And thus posted the missing replies in that post directly. You may have been tagged if you posted in that thread. I can also do so for the missing forum games posts, if you guys think it's needed. I'll have that backup active for a few days, so please let me know if you need anything else restored that I may have missed.
  9. How much do I win if I post 10 missing pages of LOTPW?
  10. Banned for not mirroring lost posts:

  12. Hi, Here are the missing posts in this topic, as there are several. If you need something edited, please let us know in Talk To Staff, or simply even report my post and note what you would like edited. ------------------------------ Reply #4 by @TheOther: I thought this might be the case with most people. I do hope my tulpa and I can share one dream from two perspectives, but I’ll settle for just sharing the perspective with her. I read in one guide about forcing in dreams that if the host’s unsure if the tulpa is really their tulpa or just another dream character mimicking them, they should assume it’s their tulpa - at least until their tulpa is developed enough that they can ask them when they’re both awake and have them answer. But then sometimes, the tulpa won’t remember if it was really them or not, since they’re as likely to forget some of their dreams as the hosts are. That sounds like when my alarm wakes me after not enough sleep and I’m too groggy in the head to really know what’s going on, like not knowing what day it is or whether I’m supposed to go to work. ------------------------------ Reply #5 by @Luminesce: I went and found a really old post that might be exactly what you're looking for (though at present time the other thread links in it are broken because the forum migrated to a new software recently), for our system at least: There's a bit more to say about tulpas in dreams specifically, though unfortunately I can't answer some of your questions because I haven't successfully lucid dreamed in any depth yet. Though a lot of those answers vary wildly from person to person, too. This is rare, but it has happened in some systems for sure. The likelihood of a tulpa acting like themselves instead of just "being your tulpa" when they're really not at all (which can happen with them not even looking like themselves etc. lol) is usually dependent on how vivid your dream is, because that should be tied to how clear your thinking is in the dream. Wispier dreams are unlikely to have a clear-thinking or even accurate representation of your tulpa to begin with, but if the dream is closer to feeling real, vivid and clear, the chances are higher. Still depends on the person and the dream though, in my dreams no person is safe from randomly turning into someone else even if the dream is vivid - unsure if this is the case in a lucid dream, but there should be more consistency/control while lucid, if you've any skill with lucid dreaming. A lot of things can feel like your tulpa or such-and-such person in a dream, but for all intents and purposes I'd consider your tulpa(s) to be dreaming too. Realistically, most of the time they're being reenacted like a dream character, but since tulpas literally exist in our minds it's only fair to give their existence in a dream some credit too, if they seemed themselves. In those cases I think it's best to think of them as also having been "dreaming", mostly because the huge majority of tulpa appearances in dreams will have them just as convinced by dream context as your non-lucid self, and they may act like not themselves just as your dreaming self could. In a lucid dream though, I do believe it should be possible to "wake up" your tulpa if need be. Haven't done it myself, but I still know an awful lot about lucid dreaming so. If you get the chance, tell your tulpa they're dreaming and that they should become lucid to more clearly be/act themselves, and.. results may vary just by the nature of dreams, but I think this is one's best bet at lucid dreaming with your tulpa(s). And as always I'll throw in a link to our general-purpose post on how to lucid dream, in case you or anyone else reading the thread wanted a place to start. ------------------------------ Reply #6 by @Mirichu: We used to think so too, but after actually dreaming, dreams where a character mimicked us felt so drastically different we can't make ourselves believe it was us. But telling a tulpa 'you were dreaming last night' (even if it was just a character) can build up the expectation your tulpa can dream with you too and increase the chances of them showing up more frequently, me thinks. ------------------------------ Reply #7 by @Luminesce: It's dangerous to always say what felt like your tulpa, or looked like your tulpa, in a dream, necessarily was them. Usually they'll act like themselves, but dreams are wild and if you apply the same logic to yourself, the host, you'll understand the problem. Think of all the dreams where "you" have done ridiculous stuff you wouldn't necessarily want to be associated with in waking life, let alone things you simply did because dreams are dreams and you're rarely clearly thinking in them. That's why I highly recommend thinking of your tulpas as also having been dreaming, in all cases where they weren't clearly aware they were in a dream at least. It just saves a lot of hassle and unintentional beliefs that came from your subconscious mind's nonsensical generation of fluff. ------------------------------ Reply #8 by @TheImign: one time when I was very young I did that and was able to save my host from a nightmare, but it's never happened since having 2 separate dreams at the same time would be impossible because the brain can only run a single stream of thought at once. sometimes we have dreams where the other is there, but in those cases one of us is always the clear "protagonist" (usually the one who was switched in as we went to sleep). sometimes only one of us is there though, and sometimes neither of us is there and the protagonist is some dream character, and sometimes there isn't a protagonist, but those last two types of dreams happened before tulpamancy and probably aren't related when we dream, the protagonist is the only one who gets a separate perspective, at least in non lucid dreams. host's from is the same as our perception of the body, but that isn't quite the same as how the body actually looks ------------------------------ Reply #9 from @Mel Syreth: My walk-in(?), Erika is a recurring nightmare so maybe I can help with some of those. Never hand one of those as far as I'm aware, Erika thrived on the fact that I was unaware of a dream being a dream, which is what she exploited. If Martina has dreams they are completely separate except for the one occasion when we confronted Erika (and Sariel). We also feel like there were occasions where we shared dreams before but we just don't remember them, so I'd say definitely possible. Never quite asked Erika about this. Good question though, I just might if she ever comes back again.
