  1. I miss the old community so, so much. The thing I find the most embarrassing about this article is that it's mostly true. Congratulations! We're now reaching the public, and we appear as autistic nerds. I knew it would happen eventually, but this is just wonderful. Also, our public image is half clopper. Thanks bronies. I'm sure the Tibetans would be happy where we are now. But hey! For science! R-right guys?
  2. Of course, but still, it's in there for a reason. At the very least, this proves that he wasn't diagnosed by a professional. It was very likely a self diagnosis and by a 13 year old, I might add. Sorry to be rude, but someone has to say it because we all know it. You aren't a sociopath (actually anti-social personality disorder) charming sociopath. Believe me, I know about ASPD. And yes, it's controversial, but this is the diagnostics manual and is pretty widely accepted. You're absolutely right about that. I don't know why I'm keeping this going but I am. I guess I'm bored.
  3. Sorry, but yes there is. http://www.psi.uba.ar/academica/carrerasdegrado/psicologia/sitios_catedras/practicas_profesionales/820_clinica_tr_personalidad_psicosis/material/dsm.pdf
  4. You are 13. You are not a sociopath.
  5. I wouldn't call it a large number either, but still, things feel significantly less homey and serious with this many people. The number used to be drastically smaller. And keep your red pill on /pol/ EDIT: Sorry to derail thread
  6. -> Part of what I enjoy aobu tulpamancy is the close knit community. Lol Don't mind me. Just weeping for the old tulpa.info...
  7. Hell no. In fact, I wish the community could somehow shrink back down to the size it was two years ago.
  8. Like Kiahdaj, I kind of joined when Faqman and Irish's guides were the only ones out there (le epic oldfag XDDDD). I kind of hated Irish's. His whole guide felt very incomplete to me, and his ideas in parroting went against the entire community's so I mostly stuck to Faqman's, but no one really follows a guide full on. I think as of right now, Kiahdaj's guide is probably the one most similar to the method I used. I still think his and Faqman's are the best out there. Oh, and Fede's is pretty nice but it doesn't work for everyone.
  9. Yeah... I think you need a few more options than the two you currently have. Personally though, I believe that they are what your poll is calling "human", but I don't believe they are entitled to the same "person-hood rights" a regular human would be. I think it's an unfair move to deprive them of most rights, but they certainly have no entitlement towards them.
  10. To be honest, I believe that unless your tulpa have gained a significant level of independence, you are capable of putting them back together as long as you believe it on both a conscious and subconscious level, but the only way of doing it is symbolism and that just doesn't work for some people. I'd say your best bet is to get rid of one of them, though the majority of the community will likely believe otherwise. Also, in response to "(And if I should, how, and which one?)" I think you already know which one, but are reluctant to admit it. (Pssst! It's Ravi^2!) On another note, keep in mind that there may be another option. If you didn't force personality yet, or even if you did, then I would do so (again?) at the very least with Ravi^2. Sounds like you've got three options. Ditching one sounds like the easiest as long as you won't feel bad about it, but that's your call. Personally, I would try forcing personality with Ravi^2.
  11. To be honest, I wasn't sure if this was the right section either. If a mod thinks this should be moved, then by all means go ahead.
  12. @Hamcha Thanks! @HumbleGlow We agree. I've found that symbolism and meditation on the idea that you get what you expect with tulpa are helpful. @bersinger I don't believe they were being lazy. I think that they just have a difficult time having true faith. That was the problem for me a while back anyway. @Future I'm glad to hear it. I think that a lot of times people like us get discouraged because it seems like most people aren't having this problem when in reality, we just aren't very vocal about it. After all, we're supposed to "just have faith." @hbenton It's good, I'm getting such positive reactions from this. Glad to hear it. @Garland The whole point is that this will stop your tulpa from seeming thought dependent and that they aren't really depending on your thoughts at all. Instead, what I think may be happening is that the thoughts you're having that your tulpa seems to be using are actually not your thoughts at all. Rather than them using your thoughts, they are sending their thoughts over to communicate with you. When we speak with them we send literal words over to them, but maybe they haven't quite figured this out yet, and so they send "raw untranslated thought." Since you're subconcious is so used to translating your own thoughts into words, it automatically does it for your tulpa's causing their messages to lose that alien feeling. Basically, your tulpa isn't using your thoughts. You are translating theirs into words.
  13. Thanks, I'd appreciate that and I'm glad I could be of assistance. We've only really done simple math at this point. She can't really do much past oh... maybe a first grade level math wise. I think it's kind of a skill most of us have forgotten, but I'm sure anyone can figure it out. I don't really see any benefit in doing so though.
  14. This is a theory I've had about why so many hosts are having difficulty in attaining thought independence lately. I never intended to post this, but after my tulpa, Vanille said to, I decided that it was about time I give back to the community a little. Keep in mind that this was never intended to be read by anyone but myself, so I'm sorry if it is a little hard to follow. "With both of my vocal tulpa, I had noticed that they never really seemed all that "alien" or good at parallel processing. These are my thoughts as to why so many hosts have been having trouble with thought independence lately and how to fix the problem. The basic idea is that our tulpa are sending unprocessed thoughts to us rather than thoughts in word form like we send to them. This is an idea I'm sure most people in the community have considered. I guess this is just my way of sorting it out and adding to it. The process would be that the tulpa attempts to communicate with the host, but instead of using words, they send raw thoughts, not even knowing that they are doing it incorrectly. Vanille tells me that this has been a problem for her now that she looks back on it. She seems to beleive this theory. Once the thoughts reach the host, their brain automatically puts them into word form. Because they are translating the thoughts themselves, the "alien feeling" that used to be associated with a tulpa's first words is lost. At this point, one of two things can happen. The host can take what is said as the tulpa, or they can dismiss it as parroting. In the former situation, the tulpa is glad that they are heard, but usually it will take a while for the tulpa to learn to use the mindvoice properly. In the latter, the tulpa may become discouraged, but with time, they will learn to use it correctly. Since we have taken the first road and she has yet to master speaking, I told Vanille to mouth out her words, something she says she hasn't really done before. I like everyone else, have always sort of moved my throat in accordance with my thoughts. I think this functions as a kind of grounding, and almost a form of symbolism in getting my words sorted out, just as it should with a tulpa, or at least that's the idea. I'm sure we can all use raw thought ourselves, but the problem with that, while it is much faster, is that it isn't "solid" for lack of a better word. The thoughts are always hard to remember and hard to process. After learning to speak, the brain makes it habit to sort of auto-translate thoughts into words. I guess this should be obvious, but I feel it's necessary to record. This is likely why the brain seems to auto-translate a tulpa's raw thoughts. Another idea was that this could be the reason many hosts are having parallel processing issues lately. For example, if your tulpa is sending you the answer to a math problem, and it's sent via raw thought, it's only natural that you would assume it's coming from yourself if there is no alien feeling backing it up, especially if you're already so used to translating these raw thoughts yourself. Maybe, when we think a tulpa is leeching off of our thoughts, or even worse, we're puppeting them, in reality it's merely us picking up their own thoughts. I actually have experience backing this up myself. The two of us have taken a brilliant parallel processing test in which you would watch two sets of balls pass by. One of us would count one side while the other would count the opposite. While we messed up the first two times, it wasn't far off and the third was actually perfect. Despite this, I've always felt weird asking her math questions, like she was just reading my own thoughts for the answer. I think that what really was going on was that she was trying to send me the answers she calculated herself, but they felt like my own due to this type of communication. One other thing I suppose I should discuss is what would happen if the tulpa sent thoughts as well as words to you at once like I feel Vanille sometimes does when she isn't really focusing on communicating with me. This sort of communication isn't nearly as awkward, but it still isn't quite right. The most obvious effect would be that we get a feeling of what the tulpa is going to say just before they say it. I'm sure everyone with a tulpa has had this before. I do not beleive that this means the tulpa is not sentient. I think it simply indicates that they cannot properly use the mindvoice yet. Honestly, I feel like there is more to write concerning these instances, but I can't quite remember what it was. So, knowing all of this, what are some things we can do to alleviate the issue? I think the biggest thing is to simply recognize the problem and to notify the tulpa. Like I suggested before, have them speak the words they are saying, not "send the thoughts at you" I guess you could say. It may seem unnecessary to the tulpa and even though it is only symbolism, something I generally despise, this seems like the best way. The last thing is to set up a sort of barrier between your thoughts and your tulpa's, something many people have suggested before. I think the biggest difference between those guides and this one is that you are actively recognizing the problem and putting a possible explanation behind it, tying it all together and understanding it. In the tulpa community, those who are painfully logical, myself included, seem increasingly at a disadvantage with this whole "just have faith" idealogy. I think the biggest problem for us is that there is no explanation behind the idea. This method doesn't exactly make faith unnecessary, but it certainly makes it easier to have." Like I said, sorry it's unorganized. I hope this helps someone out.
