  1. This kind of thing I guess: https://faculty.washington.edu/jmiyamot/p355/lec05-2.p355.w13.pdf
  2. There's a difference between how we normally view "age" and "how long something has been around". When someone says age it seems more like they are talking about their physical or apparent age, no?
  3. That's not a unique property to a wonderland. You never "forgot" the numbers in the first place, you just stopped thinking about them. What happened was your brain created an association between the numbers and the notepad, so when you retrieved the memory of the notepad (something easy to remember), the numbers followed suite. I think the same technique is applied to "roman rooms" (mnemonics) outside of the tulpa community. I think a more fruitful experiment would be to try and access the capacity of that memory under different circumstances.
  4. Original character, however the "template" came from a paraverse I've had since my childhood, but only recently did I try to turn a recurring fantasy character into a tulpa. She looks a bit like this (but with darker hair, and no curls, although she might want to pick up that style): http://a.pomf.se/1Po9.jpg http://a.pomf.se/0Qo6.jpg
  5. To see all the (visible) tulpa IRC channels, when you're on Rizon issue the command "/list *tulpa*" (without the quotation marks). It will present you with a list of all visible channels with the string "tulpa" in it, along with the channel topic and the number of users.
  6. My tulpa says she's 9, and she looks it but she acts a bit more mature than I'd expect a girl of her age to act.
  7. What exactly is this testing? If you are able to remember numbers and the position of a glass of water? You don't need a "wonderland" to do that, just your normal visuospatial sketchpad's memory.
  8. Already been done (although not under the name "tulpa"). However testing to see an "increase" in activity would not be very accurate. This is because a tulpa does not by itself provide any extra capabilities, but the process of forcing increases your own brain capacity (as does any other form of practice and training) to "make room" for your tulpa. They are completely separate things.
  9. No, it is not possible for the brain to jump into REM sleep (with a few exceptions like narcolepsy). This is hardwired, and neither you nor a tulpa will be able to change that (especially not a tulpa, which, during most stages of sleep, is unable to "exist" anymore than your own consciousness can). You can however still have vivid dreams with practice (which are caused by better memory recall and more vivid dreams in general, not by trying to alter stages of sleep).
  10. It is, although there is always a chance it manifests as an alter from dissociative identity disorder (DID). While there might not be an official definition for "tulpa" that everyone can agree on, I personally view tulpas as an alter created *intentionally* to be a tulpa. We all have this "ability" in our brains. Some people who suffer from certain genetic disorders can activate this (often in less than pleasant ways), other people for whatever reason are predisposed to it, others still are simply able to get a tulpa more easily, although most must work at it manually. It's a whole spectrum, so there's no clear answer (unless you attach tulpa to mean any "being" created by this phenomenon, intentional or not).
