  1. This was one of the first issues I ran into when I came back here last month, so I went looking and compiled a list of potentially helpful links (that I still need to go through and read): [hidden][/hidden] My plan was to read through these and practice a bit before making a question (and posting these links along with the question to say I did my homework), but I never got past that first step due to procrastination. Thanks, I'll add these to my list of reading material.
  2. You're never really supposed to be "finished", and if you feel like you've done all you can for that type of forcing, you were probably forcing wrong. Making a tulpa boils down to talking to with the idea of another person in your head until that idea talks back. If you considered the "personality step" of forcing (although I don't like the word "step" for this because it implies they are discrete, which they shouldn't be) to be something like just listing off traits and maybe fleshing out what those traits are, I'd say you were a little off base.
  3. I was in a similar position a month ago when I came back here after being gone since 2013, and the closest thing to change that I saw that happened while I was gone was more acceptance for "unintentional" tulpas, such as those created when writing stories and creating characters for that. For people like you and me who don't have tulpas yet but know what tulpas are, there really isn't much of a difference. There are more guides for whatever weird situation you might be in, but the overall "how is tulppa formed" stuff is the same. Read a bunch of guides and piece together a method that works for you.
  4. I guess this isn't happening then. I'm out.

    Dash is right. Fat is healthy. It's sugar and carbs that people need to avoid.
  6. Yup, you don't have to try or put effort into making something real real. It naturally happens on its own, so there's no need to worry about it one way or another.
  7. A character in a book is given flaws to make them more "real" in the sense they are relatable to the reader. A person has flaws that arise naturally simply by the very nature of what a human consciousness is. Two very different concepts. A tulpa having flaws shouldn't be something to be concerned about or something to be considered as part of the creation process. Hell, what those "flaws" are are just other parts of what makes a person a person. Don't worry about it.
  8. Well that certainly was something. I can't say that I can emphasize, but I can sympathize. Helpful or not, I encourage you to look up some of the principles behind bonsai and bonsai aesthetics, namely the wabi-sabi part of how there is beauty in imperfection. While Reisen may no longer be that immutable paragon of unconditional love she was to you, having a voice and being a human consciousness brings with it a certain je ne sais quoi that makes it all better. It all works out in the end.
  9. Before anything else, I wanted to say that I wouldn't put much faith in reddit anecdotes. They're weird over there. Anyway, about the main point of your post, look up previous discussions on this forum about intentionally giving your tulpa flaws. The general consensus is that the personality traits (good, neutral, or negative) you give your tulpa will "round out" so to speak into a cohesive human personality, which includes flaws, but mostly in the sense of stubborn = strong-willed. In a more general sense, from the theme I'm getting from your various questions here, I feel the need to tell you to calm down. This is an imprecise process, different for everyone, and all you need to know is to keep at it and it should all turn out fine. Once you end up with a tulpa you talk with every day like any other person, you'll look back at your worry-warting now and think how silly it all was.
  10. Well, they do say that people over the phone can hear if you're smiling or not in your voice, so what you're saying does make sense.
  11. No trailer. Just jump right into it.
  12. As a counterpoint to the general music thread. I recently watched Primer for the second time (definitely a movie you should watch multiple times), and it's still my number one favorite movie. Highly recommended.
  13. I've been listening to this album almost on loop for the past few days. It's good.
  14. Think about it like this: When listening to a piece of music, your experience of it isn't just the sound waves being produced by the speaker. There's so much hidden meaning and context that goes into experiencing that music. Maybe you're nostalgic about it because you remember hearing it when you got your first ice cream cone. Maybe it's a genre you hate, but a funny video you like had this song in it, so you enjoy the song nonetheless. Maybe it was the last song you heard before you broke up with your ex, so you now hate the song. Maybe this was your dad's favorite song that you always listened to together, and now he's gone, so sometimes you like to listen to it, and sometimes it's too painful to listen to it. Basically what I'm getting at is that human experience, whether listening to music or being fearful of spiders, has a lifetime's worth of context and previous experience that goes into how one feels about it at a certain time. I know that I'm afraid of dogs and hate dogs because I was sort of attacked as a kid, and the way my parents handled it in a way encouraged my fear of dogs by coddling me. Even knowing that now doesn't instantly remove that fear response from me. Just saying "I'm afraid of and hate dogs" doesn't give you all this context, but you don't need this context to accept that your friend may have this fear.
  15. Jungian just means relating to Carl Jung's stuff. Try using wikipedia as a starting point.
