  1. Oh yes, don't worry about that. I'm planning on having the narration over an animated video. The animations will be simplistic, but will highlight whatever is going on in the script, making it easier to understand. I DO intend this to look professional, and I don't intend my face to appear anywhere in it. And nice idea about the intro. Not sure what it should be, but I will add something. Something to represent the whole community I hope.
  2. Alright, you and Waffles make a good point. The very first words heard should be the ones that reassure the skeptics. I'll get to work on how that could go and put it up in the OP. Yes, I was planning on doing this. I view Tulpa as being scientific as well. However, I'm still unsure if I should mention the supernatural aspects as well. If I do, I'll try and keep it brief and make it very clear that most of us don't agree with it. Alright... I don't like leaving out information, but perhaps it would be better to leave the sensitive points alone for now, maybe go into more depth with them later. Will do. Good point! Also, this is still up in the air, but I think it might be a good idea to make a tulpa.info Youtube channel with which to post the video. We'll see. Thanks for the feedback guys. I didn't think about a lot of those things, so I'm glad I'm not doing this on my own. EDIT: Also, on the subject of terminology, I was planning on taking the simplistic route and just using "Tulpa" as both the singular AND plural, like Sheep. Certainly not finalized though.
  3. So the other day I had an interesting idea- what if we had a simple video explaining what tulpa are and how they work? So I started putting it together in my head. It would probably be about 5-6 minutes long, a narrated script with pictures, diagrams and such in the background. It would go over the basics of the concept while addressing frequently asked questions. If it turns out well, we could even go on to make more videos, like guides for possession and imposition. But that'll come later. So, I want you guys' feedback and suggestions. What should be in it? How should certain subjects be approached? What sort of examples should be given to explain things? And then, we're going to need a narrator and some animators/clip editors. I can probably handle the script, once we've decided on what should be in it. Here's my first draft so far. Feel free to edit it for... whatever you think should be changed. This is by no means finished. ---------- Other points: How is this not a bad idea? Explain the emotional benefits of tulpa and how they are not a form of schizophrenia. Are they physical? Explain that they are not physical, go over forms and gender identity. What else can they do? Touch on a few of the various things they are capable of, such as parallel processing, memory recall, and possibly imposition. ---------- So yeah, that's it in a nutshell. But, I'm by no means an expert, so this will only succeed with lots of input from you guys. Everyone will get credit for even the smallest contribution- this is a community effort. If you're willing to help with aspects like animation and narration, shoot me a PM. I'll do it all myself if I have to, but if other people have better voices/are better artists then me I'll be happy to pass the torch. TL;DR I'm going to make a short introductory video about tulpa and I can't do it by myself. This is the thread to talk about it. Feedback and suggestions welcome. Thanks!
  4. I try to make eye contact whenever I think of it. If it starts getting awkward and the fact that I'n staring at air becomes too distracting, I just close my eyes and continue imagining it in my mind. But then, most of my time narrating is during walks, so we're usually both looking straight forward, with frequent glances at each other. Maintaining eye contact isn't a problem.
  5. You've spent two weeks working on personality? Yes, your tulpa is already sentient. The thing is, sentience doesn't actually come from hardcore visualization or meditation- it comes from treating the tulpa like a person. As soon as you acknowledge the tulpa's existence, they exist, and the more and more you act like they are real, the more and more real they get. So those two weeks you spent working on personality? You were already making progress.
  6. Is your life ever really complete? No, you can always do more. Same applies to tulpa I think. There's always something to strive for, and considering how determined and adventurous Kay is... we're probably never going to stop striving.
  7. I've told one of my close friends, who is very open minded. He actually accepted the idea faster then I initially did. He said he had no interest in making one, but he understands the concept and does not think I'm crazy. It's nice having an IRL friends I can tell about this stuff. Another friend, who I haven't know as long, I told about the concept once. I basically made it sound like a random thing I read about and sounded interesting, and he did too. But... he didn't seem to care that much, so I don't think I'm going to tell him I'm actually doing it. He barely even remembered it when I brought it up a week later.
  8. So common knowledge around the community seems to be that getting headaches, pressures, or generally strange/warm feelings is a sign that you're tulpa is growing and you are making progress. However, despite the fact that I've been at this for nearly a month and have been able to frequently talk with and even proxy Kay, I've yet to feel anything out of the ordinary. So here's a poll. I'm wondering what sorts of feelings most people on the forum get as a result of forcing. NOTE: If you are already further along in the process and no longer feel these things, just report on what you felt while still early.
  9. Well maybe you're just better at making tulpa then us common folk. Your subconcious didn't have to help because you were already doing such a great job. All I know is, I tried to make Kay one way, but she turned out entirely different, in the best possible way. Since I didn't conciously make the changes, I'm going to assume my subconcious did it.
  10. Basically, I have an idea, and I'd like to hear what you guys think- that the subconscious is actually better at making Tulpae then the conscious mind. I thought of this due to how the creation of my Tulpa, Kay, has turned out. See, I set out with a specific primary goal- I wanted someone who would help me be a more productive person. I've always had trouble accomplishing things, whether it be important things, like work, to casual things, like personal projects. So I wanted someone who would help motivate me to get off my ass. My initial strategy for this was to make a personality that was very sensible and thought out- someone who knew how important it was to not slack off, and knew the consequences of not doing things. But as we got further and further along, I noticed that Kay was being the exact opposite. She was rash and spontaneous, with a taste for adventure. And I realized- that's exactly what I needed. I already did enough thinking of my own accord. I needed a do-er, someone who didn't hem and haw about things, and just DID them. So Kay turned out to be perfect, by going against everything I did to try and make her that way. My subconscious did a better job then my conscious would have done alone, and I find this interesting. I also find it encouraging- even if you are doing a bad job, it will still work out, because the Tulpa creation process doesn't really pay attention to your means, it pays attention to your goals.
  11. Most people start with personality, although starting with form is fairly common as well. I personally did both at the same time, but it's understandable if you'd want to take it one step at a time. If you're going to just do one however, I would recommend personality- making a form by itself feels like making a doll, not a person. Keep in mind that different strategies work well for different people. Read the guides section, try things out and see what works best for you. You might want to start by imagining personality traits as physical orbs, then giving them to your tulpa. Or you might want to narrate to your tulpa everything you want them to be. None of these are wrong. As for the ADD, I'll leave that up to someone who can relate, but from what I've heard, everyone here has been able to overcome it. We hope you stick around, and good luck in creating your tulpa!
  12. This so much. There are so many tests that could be run. Switching, parallel processing, intense communication... we could actually PROVE this. But, as with you, gonna wait until Kay is further along before doing crazy stuff like this.
  13. My favorite moment just happened the other night... I won't go into context, (feel free to imagine the weirdness for yourself) but basically, I was focusing on Kay, and I was told to "Show her how much you love her". I turned to look at her and she said, "You don't need to, I already know." Suddenly, the greatest feeling of love and closeness I have ever felt washed over me. Because I knew she was telling the truth, and I knew I felt the same way.
  14. I know this isn't my thread, but I really appreciate what you said here Chupi. I've been worried about a lot of stuff lately when it comes to Kay, and this is one of them. Thanks for the indirect-encouragement. =)
  15. So I haven't posted in here for a while because I'm LAZY, but Kay made me do it. She's my motivator. xD [align=center]Log #5 ~ 10/1 - 10/7 To wrap up that last log, Kay gave me a better answer to "Surprise me!", which was "Joe Pesci". For form, I spent a while trying to work out exactly what she looked like, but I wasn't getting anywhere, and she eventually convinced me to just go for a certain character as a base, and so we did. And I'm happy with it.

In terms of general progress, visualizing Kay and our wonderland has become a bit easier- I no longer need to focus quite as hard or for as long to see her face, allowing our forcing sessions to be quicker and more dynamic. Lastly, I've started adding symbolic goals for our wonderland adventures- such as finding a spring that makes Kay's voice more distinct, or an artifact that helps her keep herself entertained when I'm asleep. These help motivate us for reaching our goals.[/align]
