The nature of tulpa in the brain.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn24...tR-oZ5_sVQ
So interesting article on new scientist about a woman hallucinating simple musical tones. Apparently they originate from neurons operating on a primarily higher brain wave frequency in a higher level of the brain, I've also seen posted somewhere before in the forums a picture of someones brain indicating that tulpa also function on higher brain frequencies.
Perhaps the higher bands coupled with the idea they originate in slightly different areas acts as a kind of separator for host and tulpa consciousnesses.

Quote:In Sylvia, there is probably some malfunctioning connectivity in the two higher regions that make them start talking to one another, says Sukhbinder Kumar, also at Newcastle. "If this happened in a healthy person they would be constrained by the information coming up, but in Sylvia this information isn't reliable and they keep on talking to each other."

I think maybe this explains why tulpas often learn to think before they can speak (which is probably always the case).

Any thoughts?

RE: The nature of tulpa in the brain.

This sounds pretty solid. the way I see it, this is a very good reason why tulpae seem to communicate via thoughts, images, and feelings before they do with a voice. Honestly, I think that there really is not much doubt that tulpae do operate on a different brain frequency. It makes them different from you, and separates your thoughts to make them a separate being. I wonder what the effects of switching have to do with these differing levels of frequencies, especially if they cause a shift in the consciousness actually changing brain frequencies, hence the different state of being within the mind. I'm not sure, so I would need to hear from someone who practices switching often, or at least is very knowledgeable about it.

Somebody activate the Nobillis-signal!

Even though my username is that of my tulpa, Quilten, my name is Phaneron, the host, who does all of the actual posting.

RE: The nature of tulpa in the brain.

I don't really see your point here. Yeah, these kinds of coherent hallucinations are generated by imagination/memory/interpolation/whatever; tell me something I didn't know. Apart from tulpas also being somewhat related to imagination, how does that relate to tulpas here? In my experience hallucinations like that woman experiences and tulpas are pretty different.

I don't know what Quilten is on about there either. Yeah, you've said that tulpas are different kinds of thoughts from normal consciousness. Okay, seems likely, not that there isn't any doubt because actually I'm pretty sure that's based entirely on deductive reasoning. But as long as we're talking strictly hypothetically, switching shouldn't cause a significant change in activity like you describe. Excluding the actual process, you have the same kind of thinking going on before and after switching; that is, one normal consciousness and one tulpa-thing.

As far as a tulpa showing a different kind of brain activity would actually indicate, though, it wouldn't be a separator as much as something different in nature. I guess if the activity were radically different then that would probably imply that tulpas aren't actually conscious like we are. But as far as I'm aware all we have by way of experimental data for this was that one guy with the consumer EEG, and there wasn't a whole lot there.

Indeed, I don't think I really have one besides this ladies condition being similar to that of someone with a tulpa, I'm just trying to make conversation about how tulpa work (because that hasn't been done to death).

I just feel like it fits in with tulpa creation and behaviour.
