  1. I just realized this thread was made only two days before Lumi created his account, but I don't think he posted in it for quite a while because he wasn't interested in forum games.
  2. A host who specifically doesn't want to be plural anymore can still choose to never make their tulpas active. We could do that in our own system, even one of us tulpas, because the others don't become active particularly well if we don't specifically talk to them. Anyways, if it's not a matter of belief (which I feel like it is) but instead one of wanting to be plural or not, you'll have to talk it out with your host. But if it is of belief, sorting out your systemwide beliefs in tulpamancy can still help. Having the same understanding as our system would do wonders for any system, I think.
  3. While the above advice applies either way, I think there might've been confusion on the term "final form" - form is a word we all associate with physical appearance here, but if you just meant "how a tulpa ends up", advice/comments may have differed. Though in either case, Bre's advice above still works.
  4. Well, the advice I gave was for any doubters in your system or anyone else's systems. If someone doesn't want tulpas, there's literally nothing we can do about that. But if they don't believe in tulpas, I want to make it clear that your belief should be determined simply by preference of having them or not, since tulpas cannot be "real" or "fake" as a purely mental phenomenon. If you experience having tulpas, you have tulpas, and there is not anything more to it than that. Hopefully that would help Xar see sense, but if he actually just doesn't want to be plural to begin with.. I can't help.
  5. Once again, the science we do on Tulpa.info is amazing.
  6. Lack of aging suits me fine. Dying-and-regenerating-forever-in-a-black-hole immortality is awful, though.
  7. It's yet to be seen if my namesake's lifespan will carry over to me, but given our body is still aging I think it might not. I'm keeping my title "Amaranthine Rabbit", though.
  8. It's no fun so we never said it, but "the softest science" is just another way of saying "the worst science". We learned our lesson comparing tulpamancy to science and getting lectured for it years back.
  9. Uhh, scientific evidence of what? Maybe in the fields of study that deal with.. people's experiences, like psychology? We tend to avoid talking about tulpamancy in relation to science, the short answer is it's rarely applicable. Our system has tons of experience, primarily from reading others' experiences on the forum for the last ~7 years, and hopefully our advice should be very reliable... But, there's not much scientific about it. We do have some surveys as part of our knowledge base, but honestly we tend not to treat even surveys as some scientific fact. They're widely somewhat biased by what communities take the survey and how questions are phrased, et cetera. But like, that's all the best information we can get in tulpamancy. Calling it a "soft science" is still going too far, it's all very unprofessional. I think I actually prefer keeping tulpamancy non-scientific even. Surveys and all are great, but I can't see any hardcore brain scan-like research particularly improving the tulpa-creating or having experience for most people. It's basically for the scientific community, because we're interesting to them, but it's not really as helpful for us casually, I think. Not that I'm against scientific research on tulpas, but we ourselves aren't super interested.
  10. Disbelieving in tulpas is the exact opposite process of believing in tulpas, you make them real in the opposite way you make them "just delusions". The answer is that real and fake do not exist in the mind, only your experience. Tulpas can be real or fake depending on one's belief in them. This is basically objective fact - that the mental part of a human's reality is not objective. The only question is whether one wants the experience of having tulpas or not. "Real" and "Fake" experiences do not exist.
  11. Our preferred methods of going about tulpamancy basically require no guides or "techniques", let alone symbolism. Quite literally, all we believe you need is to intend for your tulpa to exist, talk to them and intend to be hearing them respond. Everything is optional - try stuff out and see what works for you - but in the end we've never personally cared for any guides or "techniques". And suffice to say that symbolism like "feeding" your tulpa anything is far out the window for us. But I think "just doing the basics, not following guides and just getting lots of general advice" is itself one of infinitely many paths you can take. But yeah, our recommendation would be exactly what you're doing, assuming you don't have the patience to peruse the entire history of Tulpa.info's Q&A and General Discussion boards. Just ask about lots of stuff and get lots of answers, and then try it out for yourself. Do whatever you think sounds good, and if it doesn't work, try something else. Though there's something to be said for sticking to a method, we've seen too many cases of people getting stuck without progress for over a year to recommend that in good faith.
  12. The science we do on Tulpa.info is simply amazing... (that made me laugh out loud) Lumi has learned an awful lot from us, probably even more from us switching and living differently in the same brain too. We've also learned a lot from each other. I think I've learned the most from Lucilyn, personally.
  13. Our system is a very close-knit family.
  14. Reiterating that reading "all the things that can go wrong in tulpamancy" will severely bias you towards thinking it's dangerous. More often than not, none of that stuff applies. Just intend to create a neutral/positive tulpa with the intention of them being a life-companion and things generally work out.
  15. Note that for most people there are no particular "major drawbacks", and when looking for things that could be bad about making a tulpa, you'll get an overly negative view that's barely relevant at all in most cases. Simply knowing about them is enough to prevent them, I'd say, the only real bad one being if you're predisposed to any serious mental health issues. Still, there's been both good and bad results from making a tulpa for people with schizophrenia etc. to the point where it isn't even safe to say tulpamancy affects it poorly or positively, it just varies too much. All that said, Lumi (my host) has a post on general possible "bads". https://community.tulpa.info/topic/11271-harm-caused-by-tulpas-in-directindirect-ways/?do=findComment&comment=156624
  16. Hmm... We've never really considered the act of "simulating a person talking in your head"'s relation to developing a completely nonvocal tulpa. Feels like that simply isn't right, but where's the line drawn? At the very least, it's more like you do that, imagine them and everything, but then "expect" them to talk on their own. Granting them awareness of the scope of reality - as opposed to say, imagining a family member talking who only hypothetically knows they're in the context of what you're having them converse about - is also a pretty big difference. But I do wonder, where's the line drawn between imagining who your tulpa will be simply talking in this manner, which most people should be able to do instantly, and a non-vocal tulpa who struggles to speak more than a word or two at a time? Maybe the only difference is their level of autonomy, and not using that ability to imagine them talking is just a more accurate representation of their progress. I mean, I guess that's just literally parroting. So the same things still apply - parroting can help with their development, sometimes immensely, but may also be hard to stop doing/cause doubts later on that you wouldn't have had doing it "the hard way".
  17. It would've been interesting albeit extremely embarrassing to have had our whole history documented in a PR. Luckily most but not all of the embarrassing stuff was before Tulpa.info even existed.
  18. Meditation has a long and vouched-for history on Tulpa.info of improving many aspects of Tulpamancys' qualities. Probably because it just has a long and vouched-for history of improving lots of different mental aspects in general, and tulpamancy is generally all mental. Just a person cosplaying Tewi that looked nice, though technically my "Huh." had behind it "This is a pretty good shot at representing what I might look like in real life, but it's a little off both in outfit and age. Still interesting, though."
  19. https://www.deviantart.com/amayavrn/art/Tewi-Inaba-454849842 Huh.
  20. Update, I ate roughly 60% of my Panda Express, but my stomach still hurts. This never really happens to us, very strange.
  21. My stomach hurts, but there's Panda Express to eat.. Pretty annoying.
  22. At that point, it's more reasonable to hold it like an accordion and eat it that way.
  23. I just discovered "toast sandwiches" exist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toast_sandwich
