  1. Everyone’s rushing to call tulpamancy a disorder, DID, or even schizophrenia as soon as they learn it’s not a practical joke and people actually practise tulpamancy. But is tulpamancy a disorder? Is it something you should be concerned about or treated for? Let’s begin with what tulpamancy is definitely not and that’s schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness that is thought to have a significant but not solely genetic component; found in about 1% of the population worldwide. Schizophrenia involves a chronic psychosis, characterised by hallucinating (including multimodal hallu
  2. I'm not sure how you read that as me considering tulpamancy a disorder; that's obviously not the statement the opening makes.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. This is a right thread. It's a submission for the "articles".
  6. Yeah; you kinda nailed what I tried to communicate with that word; it seems to carry the meaning I envisioned originally. But again; I'm not a scientist.
  7. Thanks for the feedback y'all! Overall the process seems much smoother and useful than where the GAT was two years ago so you're doing a good job. Keep it up. On the individual feedback. Re. Kitsune in Yellow's notes: Everything is valid. I'm not a neuroscientist so for me it feels natural to use the words based on their definitions; e.g. subconscious is "of or concerning the part of the mind of which one is not fully aware but which influences one's actions and feelings." (Oxford Dictionary) as compared to the unconscious: "the part of the mind which is inaccessible to the conscious
  8. I think I explained my reasoning quite clearly in the discussion above. Besides; I don't see why there's an "or" between helping people and growing a blog. And there's no need to twist my words; I'm not refusing to host content locally on .info; I'm refusing to host the content on the medium which is webforum. If Pleeb had grabbed a custom Medium subdomain when they were offering the service for articles.tulpa.info I'd be the first one to jump on the bandwagon.
  9. yeah; I'm sorry if I sounded rude there but that comment confused me because I didn't remember who's on GAT and who's not and I thought the voting is over.
  10. I actually tired that! The click-through rate was nonexistent so I gave up on that strategy. I have no issues with posting my whole stories on e.g. FA or sofurry: after all they build my audience on those websites – the users can track my profile; they will rate my writing; they'll get notified when I post more. But those websites are designed to make content accessible and searchable; they give the artists a great visibility. These forums are just different.
  11. In general it's not as handy for me; I post my articles on my blog and cross-post the full text to Medium but I get the reading numbers from both. Crossposting the full content without any visibility on the readers isn't helpful when I decide what I'm planning to write next. For my articles that are posted elsewhere (e.g. I got a couple of those translated) I have very low return rate to my website. In general I try to be more expressive with my stories lately and having a consistent way to publish those helps a lot – I don't need to do the images twice; it's all markdown; etc. I can und
  12. While I'm waiting on the last critique I want to get a GAT summary on what constitutes "advertising". I'm not making money off those posts but I also have no interest in posting on .info without any accreditation of my work; specifically: You can copy and paste your finished draft into submissions and leave out the last two paragraphs linking to your other stuff, or you can leave everything on your blog and not have this work on Tulpa.info. if this is a hard requirement then I'm going to save your time. As for the other feedback; thanks a lot; you all were very helpful; especially Kit
  13. “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.
