RE: Getting tulpa in the mainstream.

Mainstream to me are the most popular, widely known things. Everyone knows of them, or it, and knows the basic facts. Usually it's something that can be seen through different opinions. WW2 is widely known and everyone knows what it was and about it, but you wouldn't call it mainstream. A genre of music can be mainstream- everyone knows of the most famous band in that genre, and they know a few songs by that band. That's mainstream.

So tuppers going mainsteam would be that people know generally what they are, what they can do and they have an opinion on them.

I suppose before we go mainstream we need to discern all the facts about tulpae. Actual facts. Through testing.

Oh god, the horror. Absolutely disgusting scenario, and I would be utterly shamed and disappointed if this would become our image to the general people/media. I've said this before, we can't really come out and "expose" ourselves and this phenomenon before we've got any real ground to stand on, proper explanations/guidelines/other things we can agree on and maybe even some scientific proof. If FOX news portrays us like we're waifu fuckers + teenage werewolfs + bronies x100, I will commit seppuku, or move to a little cottage in Dalarna after staging my own death. Jesus people, this forum is still not even a year old, a little patience, please. And about "recruiting" more people - yes, it would be nice if we had a wide selection of hosts and tulpae, but we're far from short on people, at least for now. This stuff will reach others, even if we don't do much commercializing.

"Like"? That's a fairly reasonable summary of a large portion of the community. And that's the problem. You'd come on this forum and see
>pony avatars fucking everywhere
>loldark avatars fucking everywhere
>every other avatar is anime-related
>"I had babies with my tulpa"
>Battle army tulpae in service of CIA since 1977 !
>tulpa sex poll #56

And so on. You couldn't blame FOX for giving an accurate portrayal.

RE: Getting tulpa in the mainstream.

Hey hey! Anime is just a hobby we happen to like that can be demonstrated in an avatar. If you like sailing, I doubt people would use a boat as their avatar. Sure just look at your avatar! I forget his name (jumbo was it?) but he's from Yotsubato, the manga.

But yeah. Apart from a few exceptions, that is a pretty accurate description of everyone here. But only some of those are inherently bad.

RE: Getting tulpa in the mainstream.

I think the question should be: "Why?"

What would we as people gain from self-induced multiplicity being known by the mainstream populace? How would this help us in our endeavors to learn more about the phenomenon? Would it allow the handful of legit Multiples to come out of their closet? Would it make people stop proscribing certain drugs to "cure" DID? Would it somehow help some lonely folk feel companionship? Would it help people reorganize their minds in a much better way?

Now, I say "self-induced multiplicity" rather than "Tulpa" because frankly, calling it "tulpa' is just asking to get labeled as some kind of New Age cult movement, something that this site has tried to completely avoid. A decent amount of us even don't care to call their mind buddies tulpa at all because of that word's roots in mysticism and the occult. At this point in time, I can see absolutely no good from having this known to the general public, and a whole ton of bad. At best, we'd get large amounts of ridicule and derisive jeers from people. At worst, we'd have people trying to have all of us admitted to a mental hospital, because the current general populace's definition of "getting help" for someone is having said person locked up and out of their sight.

Pretty much. Give it some centuries and peharps people would be willing to accept the possibility of this phenomenon being something other than self-delusional bullshit or full-blown crazy. You can call me a pessimist, but analyze the people around you just a little bit and you'll probably come to the same conclusion. It actually baffles me that this thread has been made more than one time (probably meaning that some people have way more faith in the world than me).

But really, i don't really care about what the masses think of tuppers, but i know i don't want to see this community flooded by shitty people at least. Let's just keep this place up and running and keep the judgemental bullshit out of it, for the sake of everything that is beautiful.

RE: Getting tulpa in the mainstream.

Tulpas are in the mainstream you have the movie Avatar, you have the cute little pokemons. I mean what more could you ask for? The fact is that tulpas work for us. That should be enough for now. Besides we don't want to dilute or dumb down the concept just for mass approval, do we?

RE: Getting tulpa in the mainstream.

What I think that will happen?
People that discover this will try to hide the knowledge because of the groundbreaking improvements a person can achieve in itself.
Simply put, a scientist will discover this, prove it, and then wonder if people should know about it. After SEVERAL years, it would become something recurrent in yoga and in occultist communities, but it would be hidden knowledge.
Even between scientists people would point that it's dangerous because your tulpa may take control of your body and things like that, while they would try themselves to make one. Then a lot of people would have tulpae, but it would became a taboo, and only people with high IQ's would be able to see through the metaphysical bullshit that some fake street monks will teach them, and end not with a servitor but a tulpa. Despite them, only people with psychological knowledge would really try making a tulpa. Later, really later, people will acknowledge this as a common thing, there will be guides in reader's digest about it and everyone will think that they made a tulpa, and will wonder how to achieve things like imposition. Even after this, possession and switching will still be a taboo, that won't be break untill many more studies in the psychological field.

Know, why we should do it? Quite frankly, I don't think any of us by having tulpae will become famous or anything like that. The credit will go to tibetan monks and scientists and we are going to be the anonymous people that hid tthe knowledge of the world.

That's my realistic view, my optimistic would be something else, but no one is interested in that one.

RE: Getting tulpa in the mainstream.

Oh, and I forgot to mention.
Once this is mainstream, this site won't really have much appeal. There will be sites with tons of marketing to them and this will only be the hipster one, the one that made tulpae before they were mainstream. And we're probably going to be close-minded to everything people claim about tulpae that didn't came from respectable sources, like "tulpae can make you lose weight", shit that will probably happen when it's mainstream, so in general we will be hated and considered circlejerks by everyone.
