  1. Yeahs; I might need to look again into that definition. I'm not really fond of the "traditional" active & passive forcing definitions but the initial review of this article showed that people are getting confused if I used my own wording. Well duh. Thanks for pointing it out.
  2. I've been advised in my GAT submission thread that I might find a better discussion platform in the general section. Granted I never really was an active user in here and I don't know your local customs I'd like to throw in a link to my recent post on forcing and see if it sprouts any good discussion. So here you go: On Forcing
  3. “Can I create a tulpa only by passive forcing?” This question pops up constantly on tulpa forums and discussion groups. It often comes from a thought that “active forcing” requires you to dedicate time to your tulpa, and you ain’t got time for that shite (you still want to have a tulpa, though). I decided to tap into the applied neuroscience and make a bridge between forcing and mindfulness; expanding into the brain idling states and pointing out the best strategies to develop a tulpa. Read the article Note from GAT: While the page linked is clean/SFW, other pages/articles on Shinyuu's blog are not. Tread carefully if you are at work/school or are a minor or read the mirrored version on Medium.
  4. My name's Shinyuu and I'd like to join the GAT team. I consider myself qualified for the job based on the following points: I'm a tulpa passionate about figuring how tulpas work in the first place; I'm a professional writer with a high-quality critique standing on Scribophile (the professional writers community); also a blogger with numerous posts on the subject of tulpamancy; I'm an active member of the /r/tulpas community (and a sub moderator); I deal with people interested in tulpamancy on a daily basis and I have a good grasp of what kind of material is beneficial for the community as a whole. I'm not an active member of .info but I'm willing to change that and participate more to make sure there's more good content related to tulpamancy on all the major platforms. I'll also vouch for Within being one of the most professional people around when it comes to systematising the tulpamancy documents, articles, and research.
  5. I don't think there is a transcription – I'd prefer to read it myself.
  6. I had a very nice chat with didyoureddit people in regards to their episode on /r/tulpas. They seemed very nice and chill; and created an overall very friendly atmosphere. You can listen to the first part (the /r/tulpas review) here: and to the interview here:
  7. You're right. I should have paid more attention to the summary I've written. I totally accept I'm biased towards the result an while it doesn't change the content of the guides I looked for a very specific things in said guides. I guess I should have left the conclusion to the reader.
  8. I've provided explicit quotes from the most popular guides where they literally state to suspend the disbelief. You think that's not a valid enough argument?
  9. No; the fact that the guides rely on faith and suspension of disbelief. That's the point of the article.
  10. Point being the methods (guides) rely on faith to start with. As for surveying the unsuccessful attempts – that'd be awesome but also really hard to do; eh.
  11. Are tulpas based primarily on faith? A few weeks ago I was called out by one of the fellow redditors who stated that there are absolutely scientific methods to create a tulpa, following the strict scientific method. That sounded odd. I was under an impression that all the popular tulpa guides get you into a mindset where you’re not only open to believe whatever; you are actively suspending your disbelief too. My hypothesis was that tulpas require at least some amount of faith to make the whole thing work. I ran a short survey on most popular tulpa guides and I’ve got forty responses, which attributes to about twelve per cent of the active community population. Three most popular guides were: Methos’s with thirty per cent votes, Tulpa’s DIY Guide (twenty-five per cent) and Kiah’s guide (twenty per cent). FAQ Man’s took the fourth place with ten per cent. Proceed to the analysis and the results →
  12. Take the Survey! I'm following up on my research with another research. This time we're measuring the reactions to observed experiences of others (it's an actual test known in the wild). I have my expectations about the results in plurals and I need your help to confirm or disprove my hypothesis. As usual; the results will come up as an essay on when I have enough data.
  13. I guess I can revive this tread with the link to a short summary: here. And this is the reddit thread with more details.
  14. Helloes! It's absolutely safe to study the guides, more so I'd suggest you to study as many of them as possible. By doing this you'll be able to find the similarities and learn the core concepts, which are all pretty much the same across most of the guides. If you want to have a 100% safe route you can ask someone to read the guides and then tell you the gist of those, but I don't think you need that level of isolation. If you're working in the field of fiction, that'd be enough for you to make a believable claims in your story. If you're writing a historical fiction, then it might be wise to talk to some of the older community members to get their personal perspective on things too—you'd need them to agree that whatever they tell you would be used as a source material for a novel though. Are you a member of Scribophile or Reddit's Writer's Block? I'm a writer myself and we could have a lengthier discussion on tulpamancy-related topics in writing.
