Reason for Creating a Tulpa
#31
companionshipselfbettermentforscience.

There's also the very fact that tulpae are self-aware thoughts for whom your mind is Cosmos and your imagination is real to them and they can relay to you the fascinating experiences of a nonhuman sapient being who dwells in the mental and is physically made of neural impulses but can also be molded into any subjective shape you wish, and the best thing? It's not a sci-fi story. It's all real and happening right now. Coming soon to a house near you.

Also I suspect tulpae are gonna slowly become a famous Thing over the next few years, and I'd rather know more about them than the average Joe Schmoe off the street.

I sure hope your tulpa will advice you on some better language choices.

I'm a lonely fuck.

Also memory recall is pretty neat.

A companion would always be nice. I'm tend to get ronery sometimes, so i figured a tulpa would be the way to go, as I have a bad case of social anxiety, because of which i am unable to go out into the world and make real friends.

The memory recall is great too and would do wonders for my performance in school as well as self improvement, which I strive for most in life.

We're going to make a new scripting language called Fresh. It'll be written in C and the source will be full of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air refrences and it will be so buggy half of your program will be trying to improvise around how buggy it is. Then Google will promise to make it 4x faster and proceed to do absolutly nothing.
This hot empty painting should be locked and towed.

I have to agree there, LOL
Just imagine conjuring food, lol, it may not be real, but it will be satisfying.
Back on subject, my reasons are because:
  1. Companionship
  2. Helping me become a bit more extroverted
  3. A lifelong companion
  4. A helpful guide
  5. Memory recall
  6. Subconscious access
  7. Science
  8. School help

At first I wasn't too keen on the whole Tulpa thing, too much work. But I started thinking about 'If I did what would she be like?' I kept thinking about that and after time I had exactly what she'd be like if I did planned out. One of her aspects was that she enjoyed life and enjoyed being alive, that kinda bugged me I kept thinking about her and it got to the point where I already considered her a person, and if I didn't create her it'd be the same as killing her in the first place ... She always looked so happy to be alive in my thoughts and the thought of her not existing and what she'd feel (Despite being unable to feel) about that made me decide that I had to create her.

tldr; All 'dem feels! Guilt-tripped me into making her yo!

I don't really know why I made Clair. Perhaps I was just fed up with this shitty life. What I do know is that creating Clair pulled me from the brink of disaster at a time when I needed pulling most.
