  1. Give Ashmo my slot. I'm leaving the community.
  2. I usually make my tulpa a character in most the games I play.
  3. So, I followed that link you posted to another thread, where the first link was this, which talks about the thoughts of "Anthropology Professor Tanya Luhrmann" -- the same one who wrote the NY Times article. Interesting. Very interesting.
  4. This seems to suggest that tulpa were originally meant to be created gods in Tibetan Buddhism. Though students who believed in the divinity of the tulpa were deemed failures.
  5. Yeah, I value my tulpa's insight because she often thinks of things that I wouldn't, but it's a matter of having a different perspective. I'd say we're around the same intelligence.

    Tulpas and sleep

    Well, first off, meditation can replace sleep -- but not all sleep. There are a number of bad side effects to not getting enough sleep, and many of these will hit you even if you're meditating. I strongly suspect that even if someone switches with their tulpa for the sleeping hours, they will still feel many of these effects. But of course I'm not switching yet, so I can't say for sure.
  7. Frankly, I side with Yori on all of this. But I'm tired of arguing about it.
  8. Nope. That's another flaw with Pascal's Wager. He didn't even consider the possibility that his Christianity might annoy Odin or Zeus. (Especially Zeus -- he liked to sleep with the goddesses of other religions, and Christianity doesn't have goddesses.) But that doesn't really apply, even on a metaphorical level, to tulpa.
  9. Well, like I said, don't expect too much of it. Fifteen seconds gets a bit repetitive, and it's easy to hear where it ends and loops, so it's a bit distracting. But maybe it'll give you an idea of whether this is the sort of thing that works with you.
  10. But what do I call just the ones who share Kevin's body?
  11. The criticism seems fair, but none of that stuff really bothered me. The only thing I want is a definition. Nobillis, I think you and your (clan? system? family?) define switching a bit differently than most of the community -- which is a good thing. I think the definitions around here are slightly off what they should be. But I would really like to know exactly what you mean by "switching". Other than that, I personally have no complaints.
  12. Personally, I don't see why length is an issue. Articles and guides have an advantage over forum posts and personal messages in that you don't have to read them all the way through. If I pick up a guide on making tulpa, for example, I'm going to skip over the parts that are no longer relevant to me, like narration.

    So it goes

    Oh yeah. I think that was Enny's PR. The idea was based off the Engineer's Ring, and the idea is that it will remind you of what it represents every time you write or draw, as well as when you see it. I don't do much writing -- I type absolutely everything -- so it's only a visual reminder for me. But I imagine it should work better for other people. Let me know how it works out for you.
  14. This has been brought up several times before. Pretty much every time, people conclude that there's no way to prove someone has a tulpa except, as Chupi said, possibly with a brain scan.
