  1. Not dead yet... Like the new forum. Planning on putting out 2.0 versions of my visualization and imposition guides. Maybe it will be one guide, since those two things can be coupled. I dunno yet.

  2. Hi slydshot, welcome to the community. A soulbond absolutely has potential to become a tulpa. Just as any other mental figure or character can be produced into a tulpa, a soulbond should be able to obtain the level of cognitive complexity seen in tulpas with enough effort. However, creating a tulpa means recognizing your soulbond as being independent from yourself. Along with this comes with the possibility for "deviation". All this means is that it becomes possible your tulpa may want to change its appearance, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will happen. The process of creating a tulpa involves thinking about it and spending time with it. This is often called tulpaforcing. During tulpaforcing, you often work on your tulpa's form and personality. To develop your tulpa's personality, you may want to check out some of the guides we have, to get a feel for how tulpas are developed. Signs of sentience include different kinds of communication attempts from your tulpa. Some of the most basic ones are head pressure, emotional responses, and alien thoughts. Your tulpa may also start communicating to you through body language or mindvoice, if developed. Over time, these kinds of responses may seem more and more separate and distinct from yourself.
  3. I like it, and agree with the feedback that was said above. It's basic enough to be a good introductory guide for new users without getting them muddled in weirder things like possession, switching, parroting, etc. and it avoids most of the 'mancer jargon.
  4. Not bad. At least it was interesting to hear about Melian's upbringing from Mistgod's perspective rather than through Melian's "musings" format, haha. As for the podcast itself, I'd recommend looking into how to clean the audio up a bit with Audacity. You can do a lot with just a few clicks. I was thinking about doing something like this myself some time, but it looks like there's already a couple folks out there giving it a shot. Good luck!
  5. I'd like to make an apology to the users of tulpa.info, and the members that I did not respond to in a timely manner. While this community and the quality of its guides remains in my interest, I was surprised by how much time was required to actually manage the GAT team. We started the guide approval process on the 14th of November, pre-screening all guides to decide whether they were worth voting on. As that had been done, approved guides were to be stickied in waves as GAT members voted their approval or disapproval. However, getting all of the members to participate took more energy than I anticipated, and I realize now that I simply don't have the time to bother the handful of folks who don't seem to otherwise use tulpa.info. There was also some confusion about Fede's guide being the only approved guide. Seeing as the main post had been edited by Rasznir, and none of the team had complaints about it being hosted on tulpa-network, there was no problem with us approving it. Another thing is that it fell into the approval threshold after member Ashmo resigned from GAT. Since the approval threshold is percentage-based, this meant that fewer votes were required to approve the thread. My approval of Fede's guide (and now Teryaky's guide) are compliant to the 60% threshold in the official GAT pastebin. It does not matter if this number goes up again in the future, they are supposed to only be un-approved if the community gives abundant negative feedback (although apparently moderator-feedback is above all else?). With some of those answers out of the way, I apologize that I have not been pulling my weight around here, due to my inability to be online enough to manage a team of people. I am resigning from GAT so that someone else can properly finish the job of screening all the guide submissions. I did have ambitions to help the community, but the amount of time needed overwhelmed my anticipations. As a college student and part-time employee with many passions and hobbies, I decided that I would rather not sacrifice anything more than my free time for this. In my opinion, the most active GAT members appear to be waffles, Sands, and LinkZelda, and I think they would be better suited for the manager position than I am right now. Also, may I suggest the remainder of the GAT gets together and starts voting off some of their members as well - particularly the ones who have never posted a vote or been in the IRC. The almost-popularity based system of the last voting period did not work, members need to campaign their activity, intentions, and actively show their worth for their nomination to be meaningful. I will answer other questions in this thread when I can, hopefully there are no hard feelings. I did not intend for the approval process to take this long.
  6. This thread has been approved by LinkZelda and has been pinned for further review by GAT and non-GAT members.
  7. This guide has reached the number of votes to be approved, somewhat partially due to a reduction in the number of GAT members as of Dec 2.
  8. There is no exact way you should be doing it. If you've read all of these guides, then you probably have a general idea. Outside of that, you can go in almost any order - it's a subjective experience. Also parroting does not lead to servitors; this is usually outdated information from older guides. Many newer guides will tell you parroting can actually be beneficial for developing a tulpa, and some methods rely on it. And for your last question, you'll probably get a lot of answers, but my method has always simply been to ask myself "Was that me, or my tulpa?" if I was confused; my logic behind this is based on the fact that our brains inherently know the answers to decisions or questions a few seconds before we consciously think of them - so asking myself whether something was my tulpa or me is a way to know whether I was subconsciously doing something or if my tulpa was doing it... but not everyone is the same, and there's other ways to tell.
  9. This thread has been approved by LinkZelda and stickied for further review by the GAT.
  10. This thread has been approved by LinkZelda and has been stickied for further review.
  11. Due to a reduction in the number of GAT members, this thread has the number of votes required to be approved. Congrats. (also I do not have permissions to delete the poll)
  12. I partially agree. Other people can easily become a part of a tulpa's development, especially to act as a deterrent to existential crises - a growing pain that many tulpas experience. Although my guide is not meant to debate the practicality of telling other people about your tulpa, that is up to the host and his trustees of course, but rather things to think about before actually doing so. The first word of this guide is "after", there is no endorsement to doing all this before or during the creation process, and not everyone will know all the things to ask themselves when the time comes. This has nothing to do with "revealing a power level", and entirely to do with a topic that could literally change the entire course of your relations with others -- something very serious that I don't believe every person on this forum can handle by intuition, especially considering past incidents such as user Goldsmith's case.
  13. A compilation of some fun tips and new potentially helpful exercises. I think most of this is okay, although LinkZelda hit on the points I was going to make, specifically about professionalism. Just a little bit of editing to those things and I will approve this.
  14. The PDF version of this guide is very nice, looks like the quality of a professional e-book or something. Packed to the brim with legit information - although some of it can be a little confusing to people who don't understand all the computer analogies. The only section I found not too useful was the audial imposition section, but no other description of that step exists elsewhere. I realize my review of the guide is short, but my sentiment towards this guide is positive, and I approve of it.
