Research on creating tulpas for a book
#1
Question 
Hi everyone.  My name is Christopher, and I’m writing an essay about creating tulpas.

My essay is about how creating tulpas affects the lives of the people who create them.

In this essay, I will also be putting the concept of the tulpa into historical perspective.

The essay will appear in a book about digital media, beliefs, and practices.

This is part of my ongoing research on how extraordinary experiences impact people’s lives – things that might be called spiritual, mystical, paranormal, supernatural, imaginative, or psychological.  These experiences can be for the better, or there may be negative effects.  Either way, I would value hearing from you if you practice or have created or hosted tulpas, what some have referred to as "tulpamancy."

I have a questionnaire available, and am seeking input before March 15th, 2017.

You don’t need to use your real name to answer the questions.  I ask for your e-mail.  I won’t be sharing it with anyone; it’s just so I can get in touch with you if I have questions, and to share any parts of the essay in which I share what you told me – to give you an opportunity to clarify anything.

To participate in the questionnaire online, click here:

To receive the questions by e-mail, contact me, and I'll e-mail you the questions.  Then you can e-mail your answers back to me.  Here's a link to contact me directly: https://christopherlaursen.com/contact/  -- you can learn more about me and my research on my website as well.

Thank you for considering your participation in this questionnaire.

all the best,
Christopher

We've submitted ours. I hope that something actually comes out of this one, because it's not unusual for someone to make a survey/questionnaire and not do anything with it.

I hear you, Vos.  I have a commitment to myself and to the book's editors.  I always fulfill such commitments.  Much of my historical research is completed, so now it's about hearing from people who create tulpas, which is the heart and soul of the research.

I'm also committed to this project and its value, and hope it is a useful article both for people who create tulpas and for people to learn more about the value of the practice.

And many thanks for participating in the questionnaire.

We submitted it, and we'd be happy to answer more questions if you want! Hopefully Piano won't hog all of the attention, heh. T_T

Man, it's great that this should be happening. K and I are filling it out as we write this here, and it's pretty great, it just took some time to see whether or not it was to be answered by me or by K, my host, but he filled it out so we did it all right.

I filled out and submitted mine. I hope that something does come of it.
The book itself sounds very interesting regardless of tulpamancy.

She's the giggle at a funeral,
Knows everybody's disapproval,
I should've worshipped her sooner."

Well, done; I understand the need to ask the host these questions in this sort of publication, but I am the expert here, and I think her answers will come off a little... stuffy. And useless.
Host comments in italics. Tulpa's log. Tulpa's guide.

Thank you all. I'm grateful for the responses received to the questionnaire so far. They are so insightful! And I love reading your comments here in the thread.

Tulpa001, that's a good point, I created the questionnaire with the hosts in mind. The essay is about how creating tulpas has changed the hosts' lives.

I will be thinking on follow-up questions to ask participants by e-mail in the coming days. I am open to suggestions on aspects I might ask that I didn't cover in the questionnaire, but that still cover the core theme of personal transformation. Please feel free to suggest them here, or in a PM to me.

Christopher
