  1. I'm going to say it point-blank: To me, tulpas are just romanticized imaginary friends. This doesn't mean I don't believe in the power of them, in their ability to heal minds and help people grow. They definitely do that, and I speak from experience. What I don't believe is that tulpas are completely separate personalities from our own. They're extensions of us; they've evolved from what already existed in our heads, and the reason that tulpas can genuinely surprise us is that they're operating on the subconscious levels in our brains--the levels that we can't fully access. There's a book by David Eagleman called Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, and it explains a lot of this stuff really well: โ€œThe conscious mind is not at the center of the action in the brain; instead, it is far out on a distant edge, hearing but whispers of the activity.โ€ Your tulpa tells you something shocking or does their hair in a funky way or starts dancing when you're trying to study, and you're like, "What the fuck are you doing? Why're you doing that?" And it feels completely random and out of your control... but it's not. Sure, it's not under your conscious control. But you yourself are subconsciously controlling it. Another awesome quote from David Eagleman: "There is an ongoing conversation among the different factions in your brain, each competing to control the single output channel of your behavior. As a result, you can accomplish the strange feats of arguing with yourself, cursing at yourself, and cajoling yourself to do something." Or having a long heart-to-heart with your tulpa.
  2. Matt's an Asian guy who looks around 18 or 19 years old. I'm 18, and I want him to "grow up" as I do so we'll always both look the same age. He kinda walked in in the form he has now. He had long-ish hair to start, but eventually we both wanted it shorter, so now it's like... average-short, I guess. Shorter on the sides, longer on the top, usually brushed back or off to the side. He's always just worn t-shirts and jeans/slacks. Nothing fancy. He's just a guy.... A good-looking one, in my opinion. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. What are your favorite songs? How do the hosts' and tulpas' music tastes compare to each other? Leave a comment! I wanna know! -- -- -- Matt's favs right now: Greta Van Fleet -- You're the One -- Deep Purple -- Hush -- Jimi Hendrix -- All Along the Watchtower -- My favs right now: Ghost -- Rats -- Scandroid -- Neo Tokyo remix -- Rob Zombie -- Living Dead Girl -- Our joint favorite song: Volbeat -- Last Day Under the Sun --
  4. The first name is Matthew because I love that name. It sounds nice in my mouth. His last name is Hinode; Hinode means "sunrise" in Japanese, and I consider him to be a "light in my life" sort of thing (as corny as it sounds, lol...). He's Asian in appearance, too, so there's that. So yeah: Matt Hinode!
  5. Matt kind of walked into existence at a vague time. The first mention of him in my diary came on April 8th, 2018, which was about three months before I decided to make him into a tulpa. He kind of came in fully sentient; I spend a lot of time writing stories and thinking up characters anyway, so that helped him a lot. But to answer the question, I made his birthday July 5th, 2018. His "real" birthday is between April 8th and April 11th. :)
