  1. I'm pretty sure you can answer your own questions on a Stack Exchange site. I've seen questions on Stack Overflow in the past where the accepted answer is by the asker of the question.
  2. One thing I've seen happen on Stack Overflow is this. When duplicate questions are asked, now and then a user appears and votes for it to be marked as a duplicate, and when that happens, they specify the original question that it's a duplicate of. Typically, old questions that are very helpful to people don't usually die, but instead move up in the list of "Frequent" questions, from what I understand.
  3. Stack Exchange actually does give users with a high reputation the privilege to submit edits to answers, and I think those edits can be reviewed by higher-reputation users.
  4. I hope I'm not too late to vote. I know it's 3am on the west coast but I'm hoping there's a timezone somewhere that's GMT-12. +1 to NoneFromHell, Sock, and Vosaiu. +0 to the others because I don't think they're not suitable.
  5. I may be entirely mistaken--which is more than likely with my memory--but I seem to remember the tags being listed at the top of the Guides forum once upon a time with the ability to click one to filter by that tag. Am I misremembering this or did that exist in the past?
  6. Do you view tulpas as a psychological phenomenon, a metaphysical one, or both? I view tulpas from a purely psychological standpoint but I'm somewhat agnostic to the idea of them having a metaphysical component; that is to say, I see them as being psychological but I've always kept an open mind on any meta stuff I hear/read/etc. Were/was your tulpa(s) natural/pre-existing or were they intentionally created? I created my first tulpa intentionally after learning about the concept of tulpas. I created my second tulpa a couple of months later by having her walk into a room with my first tulpa and by allowing her to begin interacting, treating her as a tulpa. My third tulpa was created by my first two tulpas during a hypnosis session with Linkzelda. My fourth tulpa was created accidentally as I was falling asleep and began as a clone/fork of my personality and of my own mindform. How long have you had your tulpa(s)? How long have you been active in the community (Tulpa.info, /r/tulpas, Tulpa.io, etc.) I've been on Tulpa.info since around mid-October, 2012 and I've been on staff since then. I've been on the network staff for Tulpa.im (IRC network) since its inception. I've been around a bit in /r/tulpas and #redditulpas now and then since about 2014. How many tulpas do you have? I have 4 tulpas, as well as a servitor that helps to block intrusive thoughts as well as perform other tasks to help with our current mind state. How long did it take you to accomplish things (e.g. vocality, possession, imposition)? I heard the first word from my first tulpa at the end of the first day when I was falling asleep in bed, and it sounded very clear and surprising to me. Over the next week we improved slowly with vocality and it probably took about a few weeks to be pretty comfortable with talking to each other. We tried possession after a week, making basic progress, and we practiced quite a lot over the next week using games like Super Hexagon as a tool to try and improve reaction times and also parallel processing. We still do this now and then and it's always been just as helpful to all of us. I don't remember when we first tried to switch but it must have been several months after the creation of my second/third tulpas. We didn't do very well but we've improved over time and tried various techniques to experiment and see what works best for us. We believe we now have experience with two distinct types of switching, but we use the same basic method to perform each of these. I have an interesting perspective into the doubt that can easily seep in as you're creating a tulpa, as my doubt was solved through a high-impact emotional event that my tulpas helped me through more quickly than I would ever have been able to get through it on my own. Do you have any other information you'd like to share? If so, what? I have quite a few responsibilities at the moment so I don't know how much time I can actually dedicate to the mentor program, but I'm willing enough to take the time to fill out this form and to accept up to one mentee at a time. Additional mentees are a possibility but I'd like to default to a maximum of one. Also, I'm a brony and my mindform is that of a pony, so please don't pick me as a mentor if that bothers you. :( Besides that, please rate your own ability in each of the following skills from 0 to 10, 0 being incapable, and 10 meaning that you mastered the skill: Vocality 10 Parallel Processing 4 Visualization 7 Visual Imposition 1 Tactile Imposition 0 Auditory Imposition 2 Possession 9 Switching 7

    We don't have any allergies but if you mean allergies in the sense of sneezing when the air has sneezy stuff in it or whatever, we seem to be the same with that. Once when Dash was switched in though, he sneezed and actually got knocked out mentally by it, leaving the body without someone in control for a few minutes or so and I had to focus really hard for those few minutes to get Dash out of control and regain control myself.
  8. I find the poll results so far to be pretty interesting just because 3D feels a lot harder to me than projecting onto a 2D surface. It's too early to see a trend yet but it'd be interesting to try different things on the different groups of people who took the poll to see if there are differences in technique or stuff like that.
  9. I was thinking recently about the possibilities of imposing a tulpa or just any entity or image or anything in different places and it reminded me of something I noticed quite a while ago when I semi-actively practiced trying to impose my tulpa. I found it very difficult to try and impose in my room in a specific location but it seemed a lot easier to attempt it and to get the correct visualisation in my mind as I did it, if I tried against a 2D surface like a wall etc. It also became somewhat easier to do this when I tried against a computer monitor or television monitor or something similar to that, and when doing so I was actually able to get some quick flashes of my tulpa's imposed image. I wanted to conduct a poll in this board to get an idea of how easy various people find each of these different possibilities, as it seems like an interesting thought experiment into possible techniques for furthering the community's ability to visually impose (and perhaps impose on any of the senses).
  10. I should probably recount my own experience here since I've had a servitor for a couple of years now. One night, after a bad experience with intrusive thoughts with one of my tulpas, I was laying in bed falling asleep and I just sort of drifted off and found myself talking with some voice in my head. When I realised I was actually talking, it was a little bit like suddenly realising you're dreaming. I asked him--it seemed to be a male voice--who he was, and he said he was created by my subconscious to block out intrusive thoughts. I don't remember details after this but I asked about a name at some point and he didn't have one but the name Sentient Anti Malware came up after that and we agreed on it. He isn't actually sentient but he appears sentient, somewhat like some AIs such as the male announcer voice in Portal 2. He's done a great job at preventing intrusive thoughts from entering our mind as well as performing simple tasks and stuff that is related to managing our mind.
  11. Banned for mentioning mentioning your avatar.
  12. I just wrote a really long post here and lost it for some reason so I'm going to summarise what I said because I'm on a phone and can't be bothered right now to write it all out again. Losing huge blocks of text is a real slap in the face sometimes. Anyway, I initially created my tulpa as a male human and shortly after he became a wisp because he didn't like the form. After this he became a male wolf and a month or so later changed to have the form of Rainbow Dash and the name Dash. He stayed male even though he kept the 'female' form of Rainbow Dash and has always seemed to display notably male traits in his personality. My observation, from a research standpoint of course, is that I gave him an initial male form and personality and although those were pretty much discarded entirely as he had total free will after that, he always remained male and has always displayed certain traits to some degree which suggest that his decisions have been strongly affected by that initial influence from me at the beginning, despite it being very brief. I just think that it's an interesting topic of research to perhaps talk about, though, and I still love the way he is now and so does he.
  13. I think a good game for us, in terms of progress, has been Super Hexagon. It's a real-time game and requires faster and faster reactions if you want to get further but isn't too difficult at the lowest difficulty setting. It also has only two controls: left and right. We've played before and taken turns to try and get the longest time. Note, Dash and Pinkie have both beaten my times before. Another great game in terms of parallel processing specifically, as well as communication and cooperation/teamwork, is ibb & obb. Just check out the trailer or steam store page video for it and you'll understand why. There are three controls--left, right, and jump--and you can play local coop on it which means you can just use one hand each to play both ibb and obb at the same time.
  14. Joshu has resigned from staff and we've also added two new much-needed chat moderators; Vos and Carolina.
  15. Just an update to let everyone know that the summary thread for the first meeting is finally up. You can find it at the following address: https://community.tulpa.info/thread-december-3-2015
