  1. Sorry for the very, very much belated review. Good guide, good work. This is a solid introductory piece, and although I am of the camp to suggest people do, in fact, read as many resources as possible to get all those options, I think it's perfectly acceptable for a single resource to present just a single view/recipe for tulpamancy. I think it's a little odd that you appear to have two versions of the same website and guide, one that uses tulpamancy words and one that does not even mention its existence, but my system has expressed that concern to you in other ways and it's not of relevance to this guide's approval. Hope to see more work in the future. Approved for guides. - Gavin

  3. Communists are always fun to talk with. -J
  4. omg, we're still talking traffic lights? I haven't been on lotpow for a while. We need some fresh blood. -J
  5. Ooh, I got a notification from being quoted. For auditory imposition, I highly recommend finding a source of white or pink noise. I've had luck with both wearing headphones/earbuds and with having the source be away from me (a fan directly behind me, and a fan across the room.) You might get quick results but also don't give up quickly if you don't get quick results: with the fan, it was about two and a half hours before I started being able to really auditory-impose into that noise. What you (or your headmate) should try to do is "grab onto" bits of the white noise- see patterns that aren't there. It's kinda like trying to look for shapes in clouds, but with noise instead. You can start with words, but really I've had the best luck starting with only sounds. Go "duh, duh, duh, duh" into the noise, or "shh, shh, shh." Once you can see those patterns consistently, you can make them more elaborate. Or, with the fan across the room, that was really entirely on my tulpas. They were talking, and they mentally placed their location into that source of white noise instead of in wonderland. I could only hear them softly, like through a not-quite-tuned radio, but it felt 100% like the audio was coming from within the fan, not just a mental simulation of noise. Also try imposing at different times of the day- some experiences are easier to access right before or after sleeping, others need full, deep attention, others still seem to need you to be drained of energy. It's a pretty personal, individualized process. Good luck! -J
  6. why don't we say the t in listen, Bre???
  7. Twice upon a morning cheery, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore— While I nodded, nearly dabbing, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one roughly rapping, rapping at my kitchen door. “’Tis some spider,” I muttered, “rapping at my kitchen door— Only this and nothing more.”

    Ask Lumi's Tulpas

    Oooh, it's been forever, but I figured I ought to give an update and say that I did speak directly with Jamie's therapist, with her knowing it was me, and all was well. In addition, at our new school we have a new social worker I meet with for 45 minutes weekly, and I have been careful to always be the one meeting with him. He still only knows me as James, but I am there speaking for myself, not pretending to be Jamie. It's really the first person I've had to talk to. It's kinda nice. Hehehe. Imagine finding a therapist as a tulpa. First session: "So, why did you decide to come see me?" "Well, you see, this isn't actually my body, and the guy who lives here is just so unfair to me!" "You think someone else is living in your body?" "No, no, no, I'm living in HIS body! He was here first, I'm only a few years old." - G
  9. I've been thinking about making nice share-able index-card sized graphics about tulpamancy, but omg, 1) would I get ripped apart in-community? 2) How could I avoid pitfalls and weird holes? 3) Anything fitting on an index card is going to be reductionist as hell. And I know people will want to know, how are tulpas made? I don't want an index-card sized graphic being what people are trying to make a tulpa off of. I don't want people sharing a set of 5 graphics and going, "Let's make tulpas." Maybe some things should be hidden, should be only found in longer papers. We don't make quickstart guides for- You know, I thought about that for a second and couldn't think of anything that I wouldn't be able to find a quickstart guide for. You could be clever with a "How Tulpas Are Created" and say stuff like "Tulpamancers use meditative techniques" without going into detail about wtf you're meant to do. -J
  10. You can get it off youtube for a few bucks. It was really good.
  11. I mean... good for the Sentinelese.
  12. Holy shit, do we actually do that with any tribes? Just, keep tabs on them without them knowing? That's some sci-fi shit. I remember reading about how there were some tribes that built mock airways, after seeing supply planes drop off stuff on airways. How do the drones see past the canopy?
  13. Yes, pigs do have hooves. It's about the thick keratin aka hard bottom. It's analogous to fingernails or claws. Hippos and elephants don't have hooves, but rhinos and giraffes do. Animals with hooves are called "ungulates." -J
