Thanks for the link, I read a few posts and I have to say, even though it's really interesting, it'seems hard to believe that this was just caused by creating a tulpa. It seems like he was.. ugh, I can't think of a better word, sorry - like he was vulnerable to schizophrenia? The tulpa creating process may have triggered some psychotic episodes. This is the only way I can explain this. But I'll definitely read more of his posts.
The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure, while always arriving.

Maja will either use name tags, [brackets] or this colour.

The word is "susceptible". People use the same terminology when talking about how psychedelics/hallucinogens can cause people susceptible to things like schizophrenia to develop them.

I remember reading in one of Carl Jung's writings, that some people have a very tenuous or thin boundary between the conscious and unconscious mind. Such persons are more susceptible to psychosis. He also said that it is dangerous to delve into the unconscious mind to interact with mental personas without the guidance of a trained psychologist for this reason.

Thank you! I love learning new words and being able to express my thoughts better! Big Grin

Davie, you mentioned Carl Jung a few times now - would you recommend reading some of his stuff? It does sound fairly interesting.

There is a great book out. Jung, Carl. Encountering Jung. 1st ed.. Ed. Joan Chodorow. Princeton, NJ:
Princeton University Press, 2014. http://www.amazon.com/Jung-Active-Imagin...0691015767

I haven't read a lot of his stuff, but what I have read is very interesting and reminds me of myself. LOL

If you want to get into the real weird Jung shit, you need to read The Red Book.
#78
Yeah that was just published recently for the first time wasn't it? I think some of the excerpts in the book I linked Crescendo are from The Red Book in fact.
#79
I am closing this thread since the discussion seems to have runs its course and has now deviated into something entirely different. If you want to continue the discussion of Jung, make a thread for it or dig up the old Red Book thread.
