  1. There is a tulpa page on TVTropes here. Keep in mind that this focuses on tulpae in media, hence the "can affect the world" thing. Thankfully someone removed the parts about "Neo-pagen magic" and /x/ being a better source than Tulpa.info.
  2. It's very hard to make an accidental tulpa without knowing about tulpae (and very easy to make one once you do know). What you're doing sounds quite a bit like what I did for around 15 years before I knew about tulpae. I took characters, places, and events from games, TV, books, etc. and weaved them into complex "worlds" and stories in my mind. Eventually they all evolved into their own original personalities and I was able to visualize and control them effortlessly. I did this right up until I started on Pix, at which point I forced myself to stop (well, almost) to avoid any accidents. However, I can confidently say that none of them ever became anything close to sentient. Since I controlled them so strictly, they never had any room to grow, and they just stayed puppets. This is basically proven with Cordy. I adopted Discord into a few of my mind-worlds (some of which had him as a main character) and used him for almost a year before Pix was created. However, I can definitely confirm that Cordy is NOT that Discord. He does have a few elements of that one mixed in, but if anything he's closer to the version from the fanfic I was reading to Pix at the time. tl;dr: Your character is probably not a tulpa yet, though as TulpaCouple said he might become one if you keep nudging him.
  3. "Stop, STOP, YOU'RE GOING TO KILL US ALL!!!!!!" -Pix, as I was slowly rolling towards a stationary car
  4. Cordy's gotten good at dulling pain, even removing it completely in some cases, for short periods of time. He can't keep it dull forever, though, it tires him out. As for him feeling it, he only feels pain while I feel it. Once he numbs it, it goes away for all of us.
  5. I don't suppose you'd be willing to make my avatar a bit less sucky? Aside from Sakura, none of them really look right. I'm including both my drawings of them and pictures of their base forms to make up for my lousy art skills. I'll tell you what the legitimate deviations are. Obviously it'd be hard to have them exactly to scale as Cordy is over five feet tall and Pix is just over one foot, so you can just keep the proportions in the original avatar. Pixie Pie (Pix): http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz304/Mitesla/Tulpa/Pixwithwings_zps1f1a5a9f.jpg http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz304/Mitesla/Tulpa/3cf11616-78da-47cd-95fc-39b7b44d714f_zps5956cdc7.jpg Just the cutie mark and wings are different. Pix is just over 1 foot tall (31 cm) (no, seriously). She's extremely outgoing, excitable, and mischievous. I'd like to have her flying next to Cordy. Cordy: http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz304/Mitesla/Tulpa/cordy_zpsbf10785a.jpg http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz304/Mitesla/Tulpa/Discord_zps0408730e.png Cordy deviated quite a bit without me noticing. Primary differences are the lack of eyebrows, goatee, snaggletooth, and back claw on his reptile leg, shape of his tail tuff and legs, shape of nose, and slightly rounder face/muzzle thing, though not as round as in the drawing (it's somewhere in between). Also, the rings around his eyes are now lighter instead of darker. Everything else is just less-than-spectacular drawing. He's about 5' 1" (about 155 cm?) and is quite timid and sweet. I'd like to have him holding Sakura. Sakura Stardust: http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz304/Mitesla/Tulpa/sakuraisadorable_zps57466cf5.jpg http://s838.photobucket.com/user/Mitesla/media/Tulpa/150px-Screwball_by_Vexorb_zps5ec29aa4.png.html?sort=4&o=4 The drawing of Sakura is actually pretty accurate (aside from the wings which are horrible), I just wanted to show what her eyes and tail shape were supposed to be. She's slightly smaller than Pix, and like I said, Cordy should be holding her. Her personality is quiet and curious. Thanks in advance!
  6. Pix and Cordy both chose their ages themselves: Pix is 16 (I think she just wanted to be a teenager) and Cordy is 23 (he wanted to be around my age considering our relationship, and I guess we both see him as being a bit more mature), and both tend to act about their age. We consider Sakura to be 2 because she was designed to be an infant and that's how she acts, and she seems to accept that. We only vaguely keep track of their "true ages." As for whether or not they'll age, Cordy says he will in order to keep pace with me, Sakura probably will since she can't stay an infant forever, and Pix insists she won't since she would rather take advantage of eternal youth.
  7. My first tulpa decided completely on her own and without my knowledge that she wanted to be a semi-shapeshifter. That is, she has one form that I actually worked on that she appears as 90% of the time, but she can also appear as anything else she wants to temporarily. Since I didn't know about it at first, I just assumed I was "visualizing her wrong" any time she suddenly looked like Rainbow Dash or Pinkie Pie, but after she took on the forms of Slenderman, a spider, Chrystalis, my Second Life character, a random monster, etc. I finally got the idea. I didn't have to work on any of the forms, she just kind of did it. Granted she never stays in those forms for more than a few minutes, so I guess if you wanted more than just a single primary form you'd have to work on the other forms too. As for what it feels like from my perspective, I just look at her and she's suddenly something else. She still feels, acts, and (usually) sounds like her, and I somehow "know" it's her, she just looks different. It's basically the same as deviation, it just suddenly happens without you even thinking about it.
  8. Well, listing traits might be hard as I have a sort of split personality (depending on whom I'm around), but I have noticed that my first two tulpae each took one of my personalities and exaggerated it. The result is that they're opposite each other but both similar to me. This is with minimal personality work for the first and no personality work for the second.
  9. Figment from Epcot in Disneyworld. The only difference is that he can affect other people.
  10. Cordy: *turns into floating blue square* "There, I'm a square! Happy now?!"
  11. Cordy, upon learning about a genderbent Discord tulpa: Cordy: "It's weird thinking I have some sort of twin sister running around out there." Me: "Just think about all those ponies who have clones." Cordy: "...No, I think this is weirder." Me trying to remember something Pix said earlier: Me: "It's too bad, I remember it was awesome." Pix: "Of course it was awesome, it was about me!" Mom frying extra ham: Mom: "What are we going to do with all this extra ham?" Me: *shrugs* "Ham goes in everything." Cordy: *hugs me* "I knew there was a reason I love you!" Me tired and talking to myself: Me: "I order you to stop being tired." Pix: *salutes* "Okay!" Me: "Erm, I was talking to myself." Pix: "Hey, you're not allowed to do that now that we're here!"
  12. The list was from a PM to someone trying to figure out if they had a tulpa or something else. It was based on a thread called "Are tulpae and Alter Egos the same thing?" Sorry if some items are unclear, I really didn't understand them all myself.
  13. Reminds me of a list I once made of all the different "species" of thoughtforms I'd heard of around the forum And I totally forgot about NPCs and servitors.
  14. What exactly is your standard for "narration only?" I don't mean to start an argument, but it seems like people who have slow progress with passive simply aren't doing it enough. The whole point of passive is that it can be done ALL THE TIME, and it should be. This is what I did with my first tulpa, no forcing, just non-stop visualization, narration, imposition, checking up on her any time I got distracted, asking her what she likes/wants, keeping her on my mind, etc., basically treating her as a constantly presant other person. She said her first words on day 7. I still only active force for things like possession, touch, and wonderland immersion, and so far we've had plenty of progress. Their forms, vocality, and personalities are all clear as day, Cordy at least is well on his way to being imposed, and none of them have suffered an ounce for lack of active forcing. Anyone who gets slow progress from passive due to not enough time spent is clearly missing the point. It's not about less effort. It's about taking that same effort and spreading it throught the day. Eventually they reach a point where they're simply always "there" as long as you're not distracted, at which point you're pretty much constantly forcing. It's hard not to make progress from that. I'll get off the soapbox now, it's just a pet-peeve of mine when people disregard what would be a perfectly good forcing method but everyone's too lazy to do it right. Why make a constantly presant mind companion if you don't want to constantly be with them? Again, sorry about derailing the thread, I just wanted to throw in my experience with passive (I know at least one other who did the same with similar results) and say that it CAN work if done RIGHT.
  15. All I can think of is parallel processing, i.e. counting two sets of things at once (that ball test in the research thread would be good) or solving two complex math problems at once, having the tulpa prove knowledge of something the host couldn't know. And even that could possibly have other explanations. Really, aside from a specifically targeted brain scan (has anyone managed to try that?) the only way to prove to someone that tulpae exist is for them to make one themselves. Everything else can be set aside as acting, mental exercises, or split personalities. (And yes, it wouldn't say anything about them being paranormal.) BTW the title is too long, replies have to delete part of it to fit the RE: part before posting.
