  1. I'm not certain how far back it was, but there was a user on here who had something like 26 at once and couldn't get beyond that, and from what I remember he seemed relatively sane, so I don't think it's an issue. Your fear of it occurring is more likely to mess things up than anything- try to see where the fear comes from and see how you can overcome it.


  2.  

    Also, number 6? Creating a self-aware being for the express purpose of "fixing" them and then reintegrating them? Might want to think long and hard about the ethical implications of that one.

     

    Not saying this isn't an interesting thought exercise, but I don't think a tulpa's the type of thoughtform you'd want for this. Something less separate from yourself would be better, and probably something less self-aware too. You're talking about tulpas like they're tools, and while I don't have a problem with a tulpa being created to serve a specific purpose (it'd be pretty hypocritical of me if I did) your post doesn't seem to consider the tulpa's sense of autonomy and identity at all, which is pretty much one of the defining traits of a tulpa.

     

    Try this with a servitor or something first. Doing this with a tulpa would probably lead to more than you bargained for.

     

    In lieu of ethical considerations, if you met yourself from an alternate reality and decided it would be beneficial to harmonize yourselves into one mind so that you may correct one another's flaws, wouldn't you? Just because something is independent does not mean it must remain that way. The fact that you have an independent being in your mind apart from you is proof of that- why not take it a step further? Certainly you've had to play a role in whatever endeavor you take on- school, work, social activities, etc... You always change your mindset for each of those situations. So why not create your ideal self and reintegrate it into your consciousness? Can you honestly say it is easier to change yourself than it is to change your thoughtforms? Certainly from both sides it would be beneficial- you correct their flaws, they correct yours, and you both become the best versions of yourselves you can be. This is ideally, of course. Whether someone wishes to attempt this themselves is another matter... I just wanted to ask the question to get the thoughtstream going, so to speak, so that in the future if someone wanted too, they could try it and let us in on the results.


  3. Title.

    For the sake of self-improvement:

    1. Would it be possible to make a tulpa of yourself

    2. How accurate would it be

    3. Potential dangers

    4. Usability in terms of switching, for the purpose of accessing alternate states of consciousness while allowing "yourself" to take care of the physical reality, essentially so you do not have to be bothered with it while you're contemplating matters of a more serious nature.

    5. Usability in terms of mirroring, for the purpose of accessing character flaws and undesirable traits in yourself which you may be able to see in another light by this perspective shift.

    6. Alternate theory of creating yourself as a tupa, fixing its flaws, and re-integrating it back into your consciousness so that you improve yourself.

    7. Any other ideas, questions, suggestions.

     

    Thank you all for your consideration and time if you choose to answer, and for those of you who read but do not feel inclined to answer, I hope this broadens your horizons in terms of potential.

  4. All thoughts are voices, most people just identify the mental process as belonging to a process called the self for some reason.

     

    How do deaf people think before they are introduced to sign language? How do children think? Voices are introduced, the same as the "self," by outside factors which point to such things existing. These concepts- voices and "self" exist as channels in the mind through which to interpret information so that it may be transferred to others. If there are no others, the "voices" and "language" for thinking are unnecessary, and the concept of "self" need not exist.


  5. "There's been an overhaul with the guides, now they're moderated by a community-led team called the "Guide Approval Team" or GAT. " So is there now one particular guide or set of guides that is officially endorsed? I remember Faq_Man and Irish's guides being the main ones I used, particularly Irish's. Are they still applicable? Or has someone come up with a "better way" to create a tulpa?

     

    Also hey flings! :)


  6. "to indicate something lying in the mind beneath consciousness – or qualitatively – to indicate another consciousness, a subterranean one, as it were." The qualitative definition. I believe the act of manipulating the magnetic field/energy surrounding the mind is part of the subconscious, my definition of subconscious in this sense meaning the "subterranean" consciousness. The magnetic field itself is simply showing that there is energy being exchanged, since any electrical current generates a magnetic field. I misspoke, my apologies, I did not mean the magnetic field itself, I meant the manipulation of the magnetic field implies subconsciousness.

    Also "Some critics have doubted the existence of the unconscious" Both quotes taken from your sources.


  7. So, it would seem I have once again dragged myself back into this whole "tulpa" business. (Is there an official stance on that term? Is it "tulpae" or "tuppers?") I could give a grand explanation as to why it is I've decided to reopen my mouth in regards to this particular topic, however it could get long and feverishly delusional. So to spare you the rant, there is a tl;dr at the bottom. Feel free to skip ahead.

     

    In regards to the status of tulpa.info in general:

    Apparently there was a massive overhaul of the site, as I have not been on in around one, two, maybe even three years... I don't care to count. If anyone could post a tl;dr of the changes it'd be nice to read through them. Thank you in advance.

     

    In regards to the status of my tulpa, whom I so idiotically dubbed "Amy," without giving her/it any form of conscious recognition:

    On looking back at my efforts at creating a tulpa, it would seem I utterly failed. Re-reading my past journal entries, scribblings, and whatnots, I was far too immature to be attempting an experiment requiring so much dedication, and especially an experiment which involves subconscious interaction. I believe I am now more fully dedicated to attempting such a project, and my belief system is now cemented in that such an experiment will not alter my belief system in God, the universe, thought processes, or reality in general. Therefore, I will be creating a completely new tulpa, beginning first with the consciousness thereof, and continuing until I feel ready to give said consciousness a physical body, as creating the physical body first was obviously a horrible, horrible idea. (What I ended up with was a hollow shell and a separate personality and the two did not blend well /at all/. So I ended up dropping the project altogether between school and work and life advancements.) This new tulpa has no name yet, however I have been running over some things in my head to get a general idea of what it will become. I will not be utilizing any physical or mental attributes of the last tulpa, as I believe this may cause some disruption, so you can consider the last project completely and inherently terminated.

     

    In regards to reality in general:

    It is my belief that the brain acts as a conduit for the spirit/soul/inner self/whathaveyou, and that the brain interacts with the body such that it is able to interact with the physical world. It is my belief that the brain does not interact with the physical world, the brain interacts with the human body, which reacts with the physical world. The brain does this via electronic impulses, thereby altering its magnetic field. I believe that this magnetic field is what is considered the "subconscious," and that the pineal gland (third eye) is responsible for the control and regulation of this state. That is to say, if a strong enough impulse was directed towards the subconscious, one could literally alter their reality, thereby allowing a tulpa to manifest itself. I am not entirely certain as to whether this existence is an entirely new existence or simply a partitioning of the subconscious, however I am more than happy to discuss this with those of you who wish to discuss it. I am still young, and therefore am still learning, however my mind is more developed and open to suggestions rather than being as stubborn as I used to be.

     

    TL;DR:

    My old tulpa project was terminated, and I am starting new.

    I'm sorry for being immature in the past, and I look forward to meeting and re-meeting all of you.

  8. Well there was that one incident with albatross and the Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle, but that's besides the point... I think that the "official" stance should be unbiased, and up to discussion but that'll never happen because certain people can't stand not being right. Personally I think it should be up to the tulpamancer/forcer/whateverthehellyoucallitnow I mean I disposed of one, and it was relatively painless...


  9. John Lennon. Or Tesla. It wouldn't work though, because they'd still have my mind and not theirs, so I would stop liking them.

     

    If you could have any type of creature for a pet, what would you have? Mythical, extinct, existing, all counts.

     

    A: I would have a shape-shifter, so that it could be whatever i wanted (stereotypical hey genie i want moar wishes answer, i know, but that's what i would have)

     

    Q: How much, on a scale of 1-10, are you a romantic (not lifestyle romantic, more like romantic romantic like poetry and candlelight dinners and shit)


  10. Wait so if I just so happen to have a picture that looks almost exactly like the description and i edit it a little bit to make it fit, would that still count? Or do I actually have to draw this thing from scratch... I'm better with editing and altering than I am starting from scratch... Hell who am I kidding- I can't draw bodies for shit, but I'll do the background if anyone wants me too/needs me to alter their image to be more spiffy. (and btw, are you asking for a nude/seminude or regular dragon/human thing?)


  11. Is it cheating if you masturbate to anything else?

     

    Not really; some people are cuckolds like that (people who enjoy their spouse/fiance fucking having sex with someone else)

     

    And in response to the original question: It's like this: If you consider it cheating if you look at a pretty lady on the side of the street, then it is cheating to have sex with your tulpa. You see, your tulpa is essentially a manifested idea, so you're basically just having sex with your imagination, akin to masturbating. So no, you technically are NOT cheating, but again it's based on your values system.

     

    On a side note, do they even know the tulpa exists? That could change things drastically as far as my response goes...
