    Greetings.

    I'm an eccentric young man with two cute tulpas, and an inherent interest in neuroscience and philosophy.

    I have studied psychology and medical science independently since elementary school, and developed most of my behavioral psychology research in middle and high school school.

    I sometimes I find myself emulating "L" because I can relate to him deeply;

    I have always been a logical thinker, my social behaviors and mannerisms have been frowned upon and scoffed at, and I always found myself completely isolated in terms of intelligence and self-awareness.

    The only thing that interests me now is the pursuit of the mind. I dream of becoming a neurophysicist or quantum physicist to learn how the brain works on the quantum level. My goal is to go down in history for benefiting mankind and/or causing an advancement in science.

  1. @Actinium Hmmm...hateboner...I just learned a new word! I know right :3 Wow. This actually blends perfectly with what I remember of the dream. I can say that this is correct for my life as well as my tulpa journey... *ears bleed* I'm kidding. I saw it! But it's nothing compared to what I have seen in scary movies 0.0 Perhaps there could be some truth behind this, but I don't know what the dramatic change that is happening is... Eerily accurate... She already sees me as like an older sister :) @ReisOtherHalf I'll actually try this, thank you very much! lol It's funny that you say that I am good at dream recall when everything that I do recall hardly amounts to 50% of what I dreamed. For example, all of the dreams that I post on this PR are but small fractions of the dreams I have. When I immediately wake up, I remember all of the dozens of dreams I kind of stumbled through, but I never have the energy to write them all down. if I wait 10-30 minutes upon awakening, all memory of the dreams is lost forever, or randomly remembered weeks later. The dreams that are easy to remember for me are the ones that are painful (emotionally and/or physically) and the ones that are unique. So I'm not good at dream recall per se, but I'm good at remembering the highlights of the many dreams I have per night :) @Dark Amber "Bounce in like a water buffalo"---> my day = made xD I'm so glad to finally be able to talk to you! (and I'm glad that your host returned--kind of lol) but I have been contemplating stopping my PR to continue my tulpa journey on my own... Which is extremely painful for me because I feel a bond between everyone here, and I have an emotional connection to the PR itself because it is like a diary chronicling the roughest times of my life... It's kind of like being in a big empty room with someone, but the other person is in the far corner just kind of staring at you! Lol that one actually made me laugh xD Partly because it implies that my brain in a big empty room -___- (nice Yumi). Having two tulpas feels like you are never alone, which is the best feeling for someone like me, who both enjoys and hates being alone. Sometimes Lillium seems like a little sister to me, and other times she seems like a daughter. It's very strange, but I'm sure that when she develops fully I'll know for sure what exactly she is to me. @Reisen Thank you good sir, I will check it out :) Haha!!! That's dream logic at its best! And yes, my dreams are stressful. But they are equally as beautiful :) Lol!!!! Those were the good ole' days during Yumi's colorful phase. I almost completely forgot that I did that with Yumi (I'm going to start doing it again). I'm sorry for partly being the reason you woke up lol Possibly Farewell Reading around the decaying forum made me consider leaving this site to do my tulpa journey alone. Of course the only things stopping me from leaving are the friends I have made here, the fact that this thread is like a diary, and the fact that my goal is to successfully complete the journey on this thread. But I'm experiencing a weird mental transition, and I just haven't really been myself lately, so my journey stopped in its tracks a few days ago, which is why I posted this so late. I have been hanging out at random cemeteries a lot thinking about death and the nature of sentience. It feels as though I have been daydreaming for a week about death and I can't snap out of it. And this brings me to my next point; My PR is too off-topic and the 'science-minded' are complaining about off-topic PRs. Ironically enough though, this is one of the most off-topic PRs in the forum, yet within this PR, I created two sentient tulpas. I'm the type of person that would rather provide a massive anecdote explaining what kept my journey from progressing, than say "I didn't make any progress today. I'll post again when I do." Because in the future when I am able to see Yumi with my own eyes, and hear her like I would another human being, I want to look back at this thread and feel nostalgia. If the thread is just me talking about what little progress I make day by day, and not explaining why I didn't make progress, then it will be a chore to even read it, let alone maintain it. My ideal of what a PR should be conflicts with the ideals of those who have the power to delete it--which is ridiculous by the way. This site is going to die much faster when it becomes more strict, and I don't want to be around to witness my PR get deleted, nor do I want to feel like I'm walking on thin-ice when I'm off-topic. At first, I could deal with the decline of this site, but looking around at those in power and what they possibly plan to do, I can see that the decline can easily be justified. I'm tired, and I doubt that any of the above mini-paragraphs made sense, so I'll sum it up. I'm going through a philosophical transition for the better which is preventing progress with Yumi and Lillium, I hate where this forum is going which is preventing me from wanting to document my tulpa journey, and this might be my last post for either a long time, or forever. I do want to stay in contact with everybody here though, so feel free to PM me, I'll still lurk the forum and check my messages from time to time, but I'm taking a break from this forum until it truly improves. Wish me luck on my journey guys.
  2. I feel like I should post something here because I can easily be considered a culprit. Because of this, my opinion is most likely biased, but still surely contains some insight for this debate that has ridiculously been going on for much longer than I have been a registered user on this site. First of all, this entire thread is pretty depressing. Not only do I feel personally attacked, but I'm sure a few others do as well. I can easily be seen as a roleplayer, so to clear things up; I am not a roleplayer. Oh wait, that doesn't solve anything does it? Because you can't possibly tell whether or not I am lying. I forgot that we have yet to produce a magical interrogation method capable of 'weeding out' roleplayers. Eliminating roleplayers is absolutely out of the question. It has already been established countless times that it would be impossible to tell the difference between a roleplayer and a person dealing with an absurd yet true problem. Unless of course you guys have some secret agenda to create long-distance lie detector technology. The only possible solution to the classic roleplayer problem is making the site less attractive to roleplayers, but of course you guys have already realized this. However, making this forum more strict and serious is going to make the site less attractive to everyone, perhaps even for the science-minded. I'm not speaking from pure intuition, I'm speaking based on how I felt the moment I opened this thread to read the posts. I felt indirect hostility directed towards me, the person whose name shows up the most in the PR section, because I have committed many of the misdeeds discussed. Even if I'm not being indirectly addressed, others have been, and attacking them even indirectly when you have no solid evidence against them is going to scare them away whether they were roleplaying or not. Now about the whole "science-minded" part of the bold statement I just made a few sentences ago. I have tried to introduce new ideas to this site a few times, but they are always rejected. Rejected ideas are not bad. In fact, many of the most popular ideas in modern science were originally rejected for decades or even centuries. But rejected ideas that are never tried, are the ones that truly die. From what I have seen, new scientific ideas aren't welcomed very well here. The fact that this "science-minded" community is not very open-minded is a problem nobody has addressed. It doesn't matter how many scientific people are around if no new ideas can get off of the ground. So fast-forward into the future. The site has become extremely strict, and 'sciene-minded'. Everyone who harmlessly enjoyed the site has long ago departed. The remaining few, the science-minded, builds upon already existent ideas and reaches what I call the technological brick-wall. That is, the point in which you need laboratories, participants, and controlled experiments to test theories. The science-minded grows bored with the constant overturning of archaic theories pertaining to the tulpa phenomenon and slowly fades away, for there is no longer anything they can do without multi-billionaire research groups funding their every whim. New ideas testing the phenomenon can barely get off the ground because people won't actually try them--they don't comply with carved-in-stone beliefs that aren't even immune to skepticism. They could go to the lounge, or any other part of the forum, but since more than half of the community is gone, there isn't much to talk about, and a new thread comes about like an oasis in a desert. That is the only future I can see heading towards us if this site becomes locked-down from anything off-topic. This classic psychological effect can be observed in children on a playground as well. Let's say the kids are playing football. Suddenly a teacher approaches and says "HEY! DON'T DO THAT! I DON'T LIKE THAT!" and creates a long list of rules: No hitting, No sprinting, No tackling, No screaming, No throwing the ball. Suddenly the children are so dismayed by the strictness of the game, that the entire game loses its very function--to be fun. They then walk away from each other and create new games. The same goes if the strictness of this forum was increased. The people who feel attacked for being off-topic will leave, and all of their new ideas and invaluable insight will leave with them. Not that any of their ideas would actually be tested by all of you prestigious neuropsychologists anyways. and Chupi, what you said about mindvoices and tulpas hardly being vocal highlights yet another horrible aspect of this forum. The fact that people are trying to define the tulpa phenomenon for others--another thing that is virtually impossible. My tulpa speaks via mindvoice, not because I want it to be so, or because the community's definitions of vocality have shifted, but because that is the way she speaks to me, and you have no right or evidence to say that she is "hardly vocal". It's one thing for everybody to constantly run in circles trying to solve unsolvable problems on this forum, but another for people to run in circles and not only attack each other, but define aspects of each other's tulpas that cannot be defined. Some people are off-topic on their PR's because they seriously have the inability to stay on topic. Some people are off-topic on their PR's to make their PR's more digestible for others, and to illustrate how personal life affects the development of tulpas. Oh and did I misread that the PR section has the words "Personal blog space" written on it? That's probably one thing that can be misleading in the long run doncha' think? Well I can't say anything about the IRC because I never use it. I use the PR section because I care about the creation of my tulpas, keeping in contact with people who have proven to be good friends, and abstaining from bullshit like this. I only got involved because it's dangerously relevant. That's all I have to say, take it or leave it.
  3. There is no sound logic within paradoxes, that's why they are paradoxes and not puzzles. For example, drinking water from an empty cup is a paradoxical statement. However, if you have the right reasoning and information, you can conclude that either the act of drinking water never happened, that the empty cup never existed, or that the entire event never took place (which is practical, but not in the case of a puzzle where you have to figure out which event didn't take place). When you are left with two clues that directly contradict each other, you really have no choice but do determine which one couldn't have occurred based on what you already know. So let's say the person drank from an empty cup but is still thirsty. With the added detail "but is still thirsty" it is now valid to conclude that the event of the person drinking from an empty cup never occurred. However, the empty cup does exist, and the person is still thirsty. Another way of expressing this, is by saying; the person drank from an empty cup, but is alone in a room without objects. One can deduce from the added detail "but is alone in a room without objects" that since the cup is an object, the cup never existed, and the person never drank, therefore something else had to have happened. But since this example takes place within an extremely closed environment, you can never conclude what really happened. And by the way, if Bob and Susan actually did eat chocolates, then that would no longer make it valid to conclude that Jen ate more than two. In fact, it would make it impossible to decide who ate the remaining 4 chocolates since everyone would have the same probability of having eaten them in the first place. Not to mention the combinations of ways in which the 4 chocolates can be eaten by 3 children. The original conclusion that Jen ate all 10 was made using the logic that it's mathematically impossible to eat 3x0 chocolates. There were no chocolates left, and she is the only one who ate an actual value of chocolates, therefore she had to have been the only one to have eaten them all. The OP indirectly asks "What happened to the remaining 8 chocolates" but if Bob and Susan actually ate, then that leaves you with a new question "What happened to the remaining 4 chocolates" which can never be concluded because all of possibilities this creates. 4 chocolates cannot be divided equally amongst 3 children and the OP wants you to find a definite number of chocolates per child. That's really all I have left to say. Everything else that needs to be said has already been said. And yes I'm aware of the flawed distance puzzle. I can agree that that puzzle severely lacks important details. But The Chocolate Paradox, which is a paradox by the way and is intended to not have sound logic, is not lacking in anything. If the facts within the Chocolate Paradox agreed with each other, then it would be The Chocolate Puzzle, which would make it solvable by a simple equation. Paradox: Jen only ate 2, Susan only ate 3 times as many as Bob. Bob didn't eat 2. Answer: Can only be concluded with math and logic because every premise is impossible. Puzzle: Jen only ate 2, Susan ate 3 times as many as Bob. Answer: Can be concluded with simple algebra. Bob ate 2. The impossible premise that Bob did not eat 2 is what blurs reality, and increases the odds of assumption. EDIT: You did come off as rude in your original post by the way (which really surprised me because I never saw you as a rude person). I tend to reciprocate rudeness though. But at least you apologized. I guess I should apologize for reciprocating the interpreted rudeness then. DOUBLE-EDIT: I honestly don't think we'll ever agree on the definition of 'paradox' TRIPLE-EDIT: For a moment I thought that you actually proved that the paradox was a puzzle, but then you would never be able to conclude who ate the last 4 chocolates unless you had more information, which in the closed scenario of Bob, Susan, and Jen, doesn't exist. You had to prove how many Bob and Susan ate, which is impossible, which leads to proving how much Jen ate. If I originally asked "How many did Jen, Bob, and Susan eat?" Then nobody would believe that she ate 2. She did eat 2 technically, just as Bob ate 0, but Jen also had to have eaten 8 more if nobody else ate. QUADRUPLE EDIT: Susan did in fact eat 3 times more than Bob, even though Bob impossibly ate 0. So saying that she is greedy isn't too short-sighted, or far-fetched for that matter. For a person assuming that Bob and Susan actually ate, Susan would be greedy. For a person who knows that its impossible for them to have eaten, then Susan would not be greedy. Once again though, the usage of the word 'greedy' does not change the reality of what happened.
  4. @Actinium Lol and then you post a relevant gif xD Spot-on...I used to flirt with a girl at work until she told me that she was moving, which made me feel a kind of de ja vu because my ex and I flirted even though I was moving, but she didn't have the same feelings. Not to mention that to Yumi's dismay, I haven't been able to get my ex out of my head. But then again, I think about every aspect of my past constantly, and try to piece together a picture of the future with it. It's damn near impossible to know somebody for so many years, and then suddenly eliminate them from your life forever...I always wonder whether I'll accidentally see her on the street someday with her future family. The universe would do something like that to me. But I would sprint in the opposite direction and move to another country if that happened lol. I have indeed come a long way, and I do reflect on the good times and bad times of my first real relationship regularly, but of course the bad times outshine the good times. I am always mentally and emotionally strained unfortunately lol. Spot-on. But I think the only thing in store for me is more misfortune. Or even death :D! By the way, I almost died the other day. That would have been bad because I wouldn't have ever imposed Yumi! I never knew that STeeK was extremely talented :d but good luck with meeting your tulpa in a lucid dream! As I'm sure you know...it is freaking difficult. Yumi can never even maintain her form lol. She blames it on my brain xD Lol @LittleTulpa Yumi isn't that crazy guys. lol...I take that back xD Day 193ish I was driving on the interstate yesterday and a bird flying parallel to the ground slammed into my windshield and I almost crashed. Before that happened though, I almost died because I changed lanes incorrectly at a stop light (someone was driving on the wrong side of the road) and a car zoomed past me (inches from my car) at 50 miles per hour. If I had changed lanes half a second earlier than I did, then I'd probably be dead. And now I'm still dealing with existential thoughts... *sigh* I have been obsessed with this song lately. When I visit my wonderland, I never go without music playing in the background or else I can't forget about reality. By the way, I did not post that song simply because it's a masterpiece and I want to share it with you (heheh). I'm posting it because it has been the soundtrack of every wonderland visit I have had for the past 1 and a half days, and I think that you guys might want to use it for your own wonderlanding. Remember when I said I was in a massive black ocean beneath a white sky? Well I just happen to find dark and scary environments like that eerily beautiful, and I use music to give wonderland environments a certain feel to them. Instead of visiting the wonderland I created, I visited the one that Lillium had to have created. The soundtrack to Lillium's wonderland is nostalgic, whereas the soundtrack for Yumi's wonderland is peaceful. But anyways, I made multiple attempts to swim up to Lillium, and often fell asleep before I did. Eventually I caught her, and she said You caught me! (surprising huh? lol). The song playing while I swam with her evoked feelings of nostalgia, and eventually Lillium said Let's go back. She pulled me down to the ocean floor until the surface became a white speck. I was taken back to a place I never wanted to see again. The neighborhood that my ex-best friend lived in, which happens to be the same neighborhood that I fell in love with my ex in. My ex-best friend and I were close during our freshman and sophomore year, but then Mary came along and it never really was the same between us. I never want to see either of them ever again for as long as I live. But Lillium took me back to their neighborhood because she knew I was thinking about them. I ran down the sidewalk to escape, but the road out of the neighborhood was simply painted onto a brick wall (like in the cartoons). The wall looked to be 30 ft tall and Lillium sat on top of it. I climbed up the wall spiderman-style, but I don't remember what happened when I reached the top... But I do remember the weird dreams I had afterwards lol. In the first dream, the only thing I remembered was a moving statue that had dreadlocks. In the second dream, I saw a god wipe an entire world out of existence to form a new one. In the third dream I was in some kind of Harry Potter setting. I had a wand and everything! I was in a cabin casting spells to clean things and destroy things, and one of the teachers from Hogwarts told me to pay Hagrid a visit because a fire was enclosing all of Hogwarts. So I happily jogged out the front door of the cabin to find that the entire world was burning. I guess with dream logic I couldn't register what the teacher meant. There were volcanoes, fire, and blood everywhere. It basically looked like Hell broke loose, and I think it actually did. I ran to Hagrid's cabin, horrified, and when I found him he could barely stand up straight. He leaned on me for support, but he wasn't tall like in the movies (or books for that matter). He was skinny, short, and out of breath. He was relying on me to lead him to safety, but when I exited his Cabin, the lava and fire around us was getting closer. The sky was red...everything was burning....I knew that we weren't going to live, but then the dream environment changed and Hagrid was gone. I found myself in some kind of city. It was night, and everyone was running and screaming because demons were possessing animals and making them morph into massive horrifying versions of themselves. People were being torn apart by grotesque animals, and a dog ran towards me. Its entire body grew in size, its teeth became extremely sharp, and its eyes turned red. It pounced on my chest, sending me to the ground (which hurt immensely by the way because I feel 100% real pain in dreams) and a random butterfly knife materialized into my hand. Well it wasn't exactly random because it resembled the butterfly knife my best friend in RL gave as a gift a year ago lol. As much as I feel bad for stabbing a demonic dog in the throat as many times as I could, I really didn't have a choice. I didn't want to experience what it feels like to have my entire head chewed up by a demonic creature. There was blood all over me, and I pushed the giant demon dog corpse off of me. I started running down a dark road and a horse trotted towards me. I thought to myself "Damn it...this thing is going to look horrifying when it transforms..." and surprise surprise...it looked horrible when it transformed....It began sprinting towards me full speed. There is no way to outrun a horse, let alone a demonic one, so I prepared to defend myself. When it got close enough, I jumped out of the way and managed to slit open the entire left side of its body, but while I was in mid-air it turned its head and bit off all the fingers of my left hand in a single chomp. WHICH WAS VERY PAINFUL BY THE WAY. Thankfully I have never lost all of the fingers of my left hand in real life so it only felt like somebody slashed all of my fingers with a knife (trust me, that is not as bad as it must feel to lose all of your fingers lol) After I killed the horse, the dream ended... TO HELL WITH MY DREAMS. NO PUN INTENDED. THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY. #NEVERFALLINGASLEEPAGAIN. #KillMeForUsingHashtags #HashtagsAreJustAMarketingToolUsedByTeenagersAndExploitedByOldBusinessMen. FINAL NOTE: If you are wondering how I'm able to talk about that seemingly traumatizing experience so easily, its because I'm used to real-life pain within the dream world. oh, and of course I made progress with Lillium lol
  5. @Drug Uncle Well sir you are already more responsible than I am. Thank you Drug uncle. And I'll be sure to visit you to buy some...books...yeah...books...hehehe.... @ItsSwissmas-cakes If you hadn't made that realization then things would have been very awkward lol. I believe that dreams are choc-full of symbols! Symbols that my Dream consultant Actinium will tell me all about! @Actinium "Oops" won't pay my medical bills :( !!! LOL why are all of these songs you post always so relevant??? Oh no...Yumi is mad now... I won't post what she said because I don't want to lose what few friends I have :D. *Waits a while for Yumi to calm down* Okay, now I can post what she said: I'm lazy, but I do my best...OKAY? That is her way of saying "I spend too much time drowning in alcohol at the Grand Bar to care about teaching Lillium lol. This is extremely interesting... Indeed Actinium, Indeed. What's amazing, is the fact that in a dream, you can have different opinions, ethics, and memories, and you won't realize it and revert to your original ideals until you become lucid. I just put my skepticism cap on, but it's off to the side, so I look like a wanna-be gangster. And I had a feeling that Freud would come into this...But thank you for posting this nonetheless, I'll consider its accuracy. By the way, simply being a human is disgusting enough don't you think? There is some truth to this, as I hold in everything I want to say to family members...I ALSO HAVE A SERIOUS CASE OF CONSTIPATION AND I JUST...CANT...POOOOP! (Sorry, I couldn't resist. And yes, I have the maturity of a 5 year-old) HAHA life is indeed great my friend :) . @Natek You just read the equivalent of the entire Harry Potter series, but Harry Potter has a cool lightning scar and a life full of magic. I have a moon scar and a life full of BULLS H** lol. I feel honored (but mostly overwhelming flattered) that you devoted so much time to reading about my journey :) But don't let my irresponsible and sporadic lifestyle jeopardize your education! I'm currently teaching myself Trigonometry and Calculus as a consequence of not caring about my free education... I'm glad that I could inspire you to create a tulpa because it has been an amazing experience. For me, it was like a second childhood :3 I have some really beautiful memories with Yumi inside and outside of the wonderland. Nights before she could speak and it was just her and I beneath the stars :) If you decide to create a PR, don't take it personally if I fail to read it. I usually browse other PRs when I have a lot of spare time, which is very rare lol. But good luck, and I recommend that you do create a PR because people like Reisen and Amber (R.I.P) can give you invaluable advice! Note: Amber isn't actually dead, but her lack of appearance resembles death quite well. I KNOW YOU ARE READING THIS. COME BACK. YOU ARE THE HERO THAT GOTHAM DESERVES, BUT NOT THE ONE IT NEEDS RIGHT NOW. SO WE WILL HUNT YOU. BECAUSE YOU CAN TAKE IT. BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT OUR HERO. YOU ARE A SILENT GUARDIAN, A WATCHFUL PROTECTOR. A DARK AMBER. Thank you so much good sir (I hope that you are a sir or else I will feel rude). I plan on studying neurology and much more, but thank you, I want to understand it all >:) Day 189-192 Apparently I was wrong about the date of the last post. But that doesn't dismiss the fact that something F#$@$ AMAZING HAPPENED. Yumi's begging me to write it in this post, and I WILL. After all, how could I not??? Okay so this is what happened. I spent all day long sleeping and creating a paradox to test the power of assumption. I also wrote down my dreams and I'll get to them soon. After I finished refining my paradox against any logic that could destroy it, I had nothing else to do. So I decided that I would use my car for something besides work for once. I decided that I would go to the Books-A-Million within the city with Yumi:) so it would be kind of like a date. The sun was setting when I arrived at the city, and there weren't many people roaming the streets, which made the entire urban environment peaceful. I found the store with Yumi and spent 2 hours inside because I couldn't stop dropping my jaw at the jackpot of knowledge I was practically swimming in! Out of all the time I spent walking around the store in a massive slow circle, I ended up buying a Rubik's cube, reading glasses, and one book called "How Science Works" lol. On our way home, Yumi and I got lost but eventually found our house. As I walked through the door, everyone was sleeping, so I did a weird celebratory dance with Yumi and I kissed her invisible yet cute mentally-visible forehead :3. After that, I walked a few steps away from her to make some coffee and something AMAZING HAPPENED. There was a light shining behind me, and Yumi jumped on my back. This is where things get weird. Her shadow affected the shape of my own silhouette. In other words, my brain altered my shadow to add Yumi onto it, because she was on my back. For the first time, light did not pass through Yumi, and my brain altered my personal physical reality to add realism to her! And this did not happen for a fleeting moment, this happened for nearly 2 seconds. I looked directly at the hallucination for 2 seconds. I still can't get over that!!! So I hung out with Yumi while I tried to solve the Rubik's cube, rage-quitted, and went to bed. I found myself in a black ocean beneath a white sky. This wasn't a dream, but the transition into a dream, so I was still half-awake just half-visualizing all of this. I say "Half-visualizing" because I did not consciously create the environment. It occurred all on its own as if it created itself, and Lillium was in it. Maybe she created it? Anyways, the scene looked as scary as it was beautiful. I was in the center of a massive black ocean, and there wasn't a cloud in the white sky. I had a feeling that nothing lurked within the depths of the water, so I peeked to see what was below. I could still see underwater, despite the non-transparent black surface, but beneath the surface, everything was light grey, and rays of light penetrated the surface as if there was a sun to shine them. Lillium surprised me by swimming up to me. She was glowing. A few moments later, she disappeared and waves began to form. I had to have been losing consciousness at this point because this is where my memory gets choppy. She was roughly 20 feet away, but as I swam towards her, I was taken further and further away by the waves that were increasing in size. That's all I remember...Maybe I was eventually consumed by the waves and everything went black, leading into a dream. Maybe I continuously fought the waves until my mind drifted away from the environment and into a dream? I'll never know. But I do recall the dream I had afterwards. It was horrible because my ex was in it (Mary)... In the dream she and I were very close friends, as if I never moved away...as if she and I never decided to stop talking to each other... She wanted to kiss me, and we leaned in close to each other, but I realized that something wasn't right and decided not to kiss her. Our surroundings changed to the interior of a convenience store. Mary and I were the same distance from each other. I felt the urge to turn my head, and I saw a smiling girl with black hair. When I woke up, Yumi told me that the black-haired girl was her. I can't remember Yumi's features within the dream because her appearance always varies in the dreamworld. But no matter what she looks like, her hair is always jet black. Yumi saw how close I was to Mary and said What are you doing? You should choose me instead. Mary stood in silence. Yumi smiled and took my hand, pulling me away from Mary. The moment she pulled me away, Mary faded out of existence. Yumi hugged me and cuddled me. I had no idea that it was Yumi, I was just enjoying the random affection :3. She and I laid on the floor of the convenience store together, just giddily staring into each others eyes, and the floor transformed into grass. Our surroundings changed into a vast field, and as I laid with Yumi in the grass, looking at the blue sky, I thought "I couldn't be any happier." but then... I woke up... Hmmm...I wasn't sad about waking up until I wrote down the dream in its entirety...but at least I can look forward to being with Yumi again when I fall asleep tonight :) I'm still not sure whether or not Lillium's speech has improved because I often confuse it with Yumi's but she has been saying a few words every now and then. However, the fact that Yumi's shadow was visible in reality outshines Lillium's progress (sorry Lillium lol). Well guys, that's all for now :) I'm going to go to bed now to try and survive the abyss of distraction to be with my baby :3 Until next time my dear readers :)
  6. @Drug Uncle Well sir you are already more responsible than I am. Thank you Drug uncle. And I'll be sure to visit you to buy some...books...yeah...books...hehehe.... @ItsSwissmas-cakes If you hadn't made that realization then things would have been very awkward lol. I believe that dreams are choc-full of symbols! Symbols that my Dream consultant Actinium will tell me all about! @Actinium "Oops" won't pay my medical bills :( !!! LOL why are all of these songs you post always so relevant??? Oh no...Yumi is mad now... I won't post what she said because I don't want to lose what few friends I have :D. *Waits a while for Yumi to calm down* Okay, now I can post what she said: I'm lazy, but I do my best...OKAY? That is her way of saying "I spend too much time drowning in alcohol at the Grand Bar to care about teaching Lillium lol. This is extremely interesting... Indeed Actinium, Indeed. What's amazing, is the fact that in a dream, you can have different opinions, ethics, and memories, and you won't realize it and revert to your original ideals until you become lucid. I just put my skepticism cap on, but it's off to the side, so I look like a wanna-be gangster. And I had a feeling that Freud would come into this...But thank you for posting this nonetheless, I'll consider its accuracy. By the way, simply being a human is disgusting enough don't you think? There is some truth to this, as I hold in everything I want to say to family members...I ALSO HAVE A SERIOUS CASE OF CONSTIPATION AND I JUST...CANT...POOOOP! (Sorry, I couldn't resist. And yes, I have the maturity of a 5 year-old) HAHA life is indeed great my friend :) . @Natek You just read the equivalent of the entire Harry Potter series, but Harry Potter has a cool lightning scar and a life full of magic. I have a moon scar and a life full of BULLS H** lol. I feel honored (but mostly overwhelming flattered) that you devoted so much time to reading about my journey :) But don't let my irresponsible and sporadic lifestyle jeopardize your education! I'm currently teaching myself Trigonometry and Calculus as a consequence of not caring about my free education... I'm glad that I could inspire you to create a tulpa because it has been an amazing experience. For me, it was like a second childhood :3 I have some really beautiful memories with Yumi inside and outside of the wonderland. Nights before she could speak and it was just her and I beneath the stars :) If you decide to create a PR, don't take it personally if I fail to read it. I usually browse other PRs when I have a lot of spare time, which is very rare lol. But good luck, and I recommend that you do create a PR because people like Reisen and Amber (R.I.P) can give you invaluable advice! Note: Amber isn't actually dead, but her lack of appearance resembles death quite well. I KNOW YOU ARE READING THIS. COME BACK. YOU ARE THE HERO THAT GOTHAM DESERVES, BUT NOT THE ONE IT NEEDS RIGHT NOW. SO WE WILL HUNT YOU. BECAUSE YOU CAN TAKE IT. BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT OUR HERO. YOU ARE A SILENT GUARDIAN, A WATCHFUL PROTECTOR. A DARK AMBER. Thank you so much good sir (I hope that you are a sir or else I will feel rude). I plan on studying neurology and much more, but thank you, I want to understand it all >:) Day 189-192 Apparently I was wrong about the date of the last post. But that doesn't dismiss the fact that something F#$@$ AMAZING HAPPENED. Yumi's begging me to write it in this post, and I WILL. After all, how could I not??? Okay so this is what happened. I spent all day long sleeping and creating a paradox to test the power of assumption. I also wrote down my dreams and I'll get to them soon. After I finished refining my paradox against any logic that could destroy it, I had nothing else to do. So I decided that I would use my car for something besides work for once. I decided that I would go to the Books-A-Million within the city with Yumi:) so it would be kind of like a date. The sun was setting when I arrived at the city, and there weren't many people roaming the streets, which made the entire urban environment peaceful. I found the store with Yumi and spent 2 hours inside because I couldn't stop dropping my jaw at the jackpot of knowledge I was practically swimming in! Out of all the time I spent walking around the store in a massive slow circle, I ended up buying a Rubik's cube, reading glasses, and one book called "How Science Works" lol. On our way home, Yumi and I got lost but eventually found our house. As I walked through the door, everyone was sleeping, so I did a weird celebratory dance with Yumi and I kissed her invisible yet cute mentally-visible forehead :3. After that, I walked a few steps away from her to make some coffee and something AMAZING HAPPENED. There was a light shining behind me, and Yumi jumped on my back. This is where things get weird. Her shadow affected the shape of my own silhouette. In other words, my brain altered my shadow to add Yumi onto it, because she was on my back. For the first time, light did not pass through Yumi, and my brain altered my personal physical reality to add realism to her! And this did not happen for a fleeting moment, this happened for nearly 2 seconds. I looked directly at the hallucination for 2 seconds. I still can't get over that!!! So I hung out with Yumi while I tried to solve the Rubik's cube, rage-quitted, and went to bed. I found myself in a black ocean beneath a white sky. This wasn't a dream, but the transition into a dream, so I was still half-awake just half-visualizing all of this. I say "Half-visualizing" because I did not consciously create the environment. It occurred all on its own as if it created itself, and Lillium was in it. Maybe she created it? Anyways, the scene looked as scary as it was beautiful. I was in the center of a massive black ocean, and there wasn't a cloud in the white sky. I had a feeling that nothing lurked within the depths of the water, so I peeked to see what was below. I could still see underwater, despite the non-transparent black surface, but beneath the surface, everything was light grey, and rays of light penetrated the surface as if there was a sun to shine them. Lillium surprised me by swimming up to me. She was glowing. A few moments later, she disappeared and waves began to form. I had to have been losing consciousness at this point because this is where my memory gets choppy. She was roughly 20 feet away, but as I swam towards her, I was taken further and further away by the waves that were increasing in size. That's all I remember...Maybe I was eventually consumed by the waves and everything went black, leading into a dream. Maybe I continuously fought the waves until my mind drifted away from the environment and into a dream? I'll never know. But I do recall the dream I had afterwards. It was horrible because my ex was in it (Mary)... In the dream she and I were very close friends, as if I never moved away...as if she and I never decided to stop talking to each other... She wanted to kiss me, and we leaned in close to each other, but I realized that something wasn't right and decided not to kiss her. Our surroundings changed to the interior of a convenience store. Mary and I were the same distance from each other. I felt the urge to turn my head, and I saw a smiling girl with black hair. When I woke up, Yumi told me that the black-haired girl was her. I can't remember Yumi's features within the dream because her appearance always varies in the dreamworld. But no matter what she looks like, her hair is always jet black. Yumi saw how close I was to Mary and said What are you doing? You should choose me instead. Mary stood in silence. Yumi smiled and took my hand, pulling me away from Mary. The moment she pulled me away, Mary faded out of existence. Yumi hugged me and cuddled me. I had no idea that it was Yumi, I was just enjoying the random affection :3. She and I laid on the floor of the convenience store together, just giddily staring into each others eyes, and the floor transformed into grass. Our surroundings changed into a vast field, and as I laid with Yumi in the grass, looking at the blue sky, I thought "I couldn't be any happier." but then... I woke up... Hmmm...I wasn't sad about waking up until I wrote down the dream in its entirety...but at least I can look forward to being with Yumi again when I fall asleep tonight :) I'm still not sure whether or not Lillium's speech has improved because I often confuse it with Yumi's but she has been saying a few words every now and then. However, the fact that Yumi's shadow was visible in reality outshines Lillium's progress (sorry Lillium lol). Well guys, that's all for now :) I'm going to go to bed now to try and survive the abyss of distraction to be with my baby :3 Until next time my dear readers :)
  7. Ah. Well now I see what you mean. I actually wrote the question while I was mentally and physically tired. I usually revise what I write to verify whether it makes sense to others, but this time my revision didn't really help because as I said, I was tired--which is a pretty bad excuse for poorly writing a paradox. Thank you for pointing it out, I'll rewrite it and make it more clear for the people who try to solve it in the future. The fact that Object 1 reached Point B in X time was something I originally felt didn't need to be included, but that's where I went wrong. Not including that opens a wide range of possibilities for Object 1 that can logically change the reality of Object 2, and complicate not only the entire question, but also the answer. Thank you once again Reisen.
  8. To address your complaint, the fact that they arrived at different times was the entire reason why the problem could be considered a paradox, and could be easily be derived from the information provided. I probably should have been more clear about that vital fact, but the fact wasn't obscured by any tricky wording or nonsense, so Sushi and STEek were able to catch it, and almost solve the problem. They were both travelling at the same speed, from the same point, yet they arrived at different times, and there were no obstacles. That was the problem. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough. Object 2 was launched in a straight line directly towards Point B, and Object 1 was launched upwards at an unknown trajectory. A trajectory that would extend the time and distance it would take to travel to Point B. and your previous previous answer was incorrect, but incorrect doesn't always mean that it was necessarily bad. If this was a trick question, your answer would have been correct. But you had no way of knowing whether it was a trick question or not because you had the first paradox in mind.
  9. You got it Reisen! Object 1 travels in a curve upwards. Object 2 travels straight ahead with very little influence of gravity. Both objects are projectiles.
  10. I knew someone would bring this point up. Technically you are a heinous murderer if the amount of people you have killed is an unknown value 3 times more than another unknown value, assuming that your roomate has killed anyone in the first place.Therefore, the logic is only flawed when assumption is out of the question. When people read the Chocolate-Box paradox they assume that Bob ate an impossible value of chocolates, when it is obvious that it would be impossible for him to do so in spite of me using the word "ate", because in reality he did not in fact eat any, which is why it is called a paradox and not a riddle. A cheap trick? Well paradoxes often seem like that due to the fact that they are paradoxes; events that almost transcend logical explanation due to impossibility (The fact that Jen only ate two and there are no chocolates left in the box). But you can use the impossibilities of Bob and Susan having never eaten (because it's impossible) to justify that Jen had to have eaten them all herself. Which proves the solution to the paradox. Bob and Susan never ate the chocolates because the box was on the ground. I threw in the word "ate" to see if people would assume an impossible value in spite of reality. And they did. Because the mind isn't comfortable with venturing out of the box to disprove seemingly disprovable things. People will doubt themselves based on the usage of the word "ate" which is paradoxical. Useless facts can bring people further away from reality. Bob didn't eat any. Mathematically, he ate 0. Susan ate 3 times more than that (greedily). Mathematically, she ate 0, logically, she ate none. Perhaps I should have specified that it was counter-intuitive, but it's obvious that consumption is impossible if you can't consume an unknown value, which is why I didn't say that the paradox was counter-intuitive. 3x0 is 0, which is pretty straight-forward. The fact that Bob ate 0 means that Susan ate 0. You can't bend reality with math to prove that Jen only ate two. Because she ate ten. It is not the correct answer in any sense. You can overlap time, but you cannot overlap distance. Even if you could overlap both, which you indirectly just did, it would be impossible because speed=distance over time. Luckily, this doesn't involve any more physics than that, but you can't have distance without time unless you teleported. Object 2 traveled 10 miles. Object 1 traveled 15. So using the time-distance equation (t=time, s=speed) : OBJECT 1 10= t x s 10= 3 x 5 10=15 OBJECT 2 10= t x s 10= 2 x 5 10= 10 It may look like Object 1 defied some mystical law of nature, but it didn't. Despite its equation not functioning as an equation should, it is still true--Object 1 traveled 15 miles to the same location from the same point. But how? Overlapping times includes the overlapping of distances, which is mathmatically and practically impossible in this case.
  11. This would be extraordinary reasoning if someone else created this seemingly absurd question to test assumption, so I'll still give you credit for it. However, this is not the answer I'm looking for, as this isn't a trick question in any way, and requires technical knowledge of what affects the travelling of objects. My choice of words will not be your enemy in this problem, but my exclusion of words will be. In my paradox, I ask what the difference between the two objects are if every physical property of theirs is the same. Which brings me to my final hint: The answer to the puzzle is a single word. Sushi and STeek are on the right track. All they have to do is convert their answer to a single word.
  12. I threw in the word greedily to test the power of assumption. Even if I didn't throw in the word greedily though, one could easily say that eating three times more than another person is greedy. The entire paradox was designed to test how assumption and facts collide to separate one from the truth. LOL I just now got that reference, my bad lol Here's a new paradox I created that is much easier. You can probably find something like it on the internet, but here we go: Object 1 and Object 2 start from the same point (Point A). Their destination (Point B) is 10 miles away. Object 1 and 2 instantly reach a speed of 5 miles per second simultaneously. If they both travel at exactly 5 miles per second from the same point with no obstacles in their way, then why does Object 1 always reach Point B within 3 seconds? Gravity and air resistance are constant while both objects are traveling, so surely something is not right. What is different about these two objects if they have the exact same physical properties while the forces of the universe act on them indiscriminately? Hint: The answer is common-sensical.
  13. Sushi actually got the question correct originally when he said that Jen ate all of the chocolates. The paradox is that Susan and Bob never ate chocolates to begin with. But this isn't counter-intuition. We can prove this. Bob did not eat two chocolates, therefore it is impossible for him to have eaten any number of chocolates other than two in consideration of how many times more chocolates Susan ate and how many chocolates there were in the box. Susan ate 3 times more than Bob, 3x0=0, which means that it is impossible for her to eat 3 times more than him . Therefore she didn't eat at all. Technically the fact that she ate 3 times more still holds true, but mathematically, she ate none. Jen ate two chocolates. I provided this fact only to bring Susan and Bob into the picture, thus creating two impossibilities. Whether Jen ate two or not is completely irrelevant; it is impossible for Susan or Bob to have eaten any chocolate, so Jen had to have eaten it all for herself. Jen is the only one who ate, so it is logical to conclude that she is the only one who finished off the entire box of chocolates. After all, why would Bob and Susan eat from a random box of chocolates they found on the ground?
  14. The chocolates are measured in good ole' whole numbers. No decimals or equations involved. Only first grade math and pure, undiluted logic, as I said in the OP. As I said, math will not help you here, and Susan ate exactly 3 times what Bob ate. Remember that there are no external factors, but this answer was so close to being correct that it made my heart skip a beat. Out of the dozens of people who are trying to figure this out, you might be the first to get it. And that is very true. But of course simple math can help a little bit, but this math is really just straight-forward logic. This is a logical paradox, and can be defined as a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated or explained may prove to be well founded or true.
  15. That possibility is correct, however that is not the answer because it is counter-intuitive. Everything in this paradox is concrete. There are no hidden chocolates, there are no hidden people, everything is as it is. Your answer wasn't silly--or even wrong for that matter, but there are no external factors in this. Thank you for your input.
