My thoughtform Melian shares memories with me. I know all of her memories and she knows all of mine. Nothing is hidden, as far as I know. At least that is what she tells me that there are none.

 

Now that brings me to a question that keeps coming back to me. If a tulpa has hidden memories, and you only know about them when the tulpa tells you about them, how do you know they are actually real memories? What if they are part of your mind's process of creating an illusion?

 

Its the old philosophical zombie thing again isn't it?

 

I can imagine if the tulpa remembered something for you, like something you had forgotten, now that would be amazing! I know tulpas can suprise their hosts with unexpected and apparently spontaneous statements, but what about remembering things you have forgotten?

 

This could still be some form of unconscious process related to a part of your brain being associated with a tulpa perhaps. I don't know. But it would be pretty hard to explain away such a thing. It would really challenge my "tulpas are illusions" hypotheses to its limits. EDIT NOTE: NOTE: This is my final position on the question of sentience after seven months of debate --> https://community.tulpa.info/thread-formal-apology-to-tulpa-info-members-i-was-wrong

 

What I want to know is this. Has anyone had their tulpa help them remember things they had forgotten?

Yes, she has reminded me a few times. Since this is Tulpa week, I might as well have Saph tell you...

[i have reminded my host a few times, whenever I remind him however, its always some minuscule detail he missed, a bug fix, some error in code, and occasionally lunch. (I'm tired of ramen, can you blame me?!) Yes, yes I can. Anyway, the time span between the memory being 'made', and it being 'recalled' must be fairly short, about a few hours for me to be able to remind him.

(So yeah, it never exceeds months so far, but I think Saph might have reminded me a few times of something that happened far earlier, but I don't remember the exact details.)

Oh yeah, tulpa week. Melian was a bit quiet this morning and I was excited about these ideas in my head. She will be ready to go on later I am sure. Thanks Saph, that is interesting! Hmmm, more thoughts for me to ponder. LOL

Lumi: Surprisingly, I've had no experiences like this. People used to talk all the time about their tulpas remembering stuff like whole passages from books... Not mine. We have equal ability to recall things that don't instantly come to mind. If any of them helped me remember things I'd forgotten it would be Sylvia, but she's not a tulpa. So, no, but last I checked I'm not the norm.

Hi guys, plain text is just me now! We've each got our own accounts: me, Tewi, Flandre, and Lucilyn. We're Luminesce's tulpas.

Here's our "Ask Thread", and here's our Progress Report (You should be able to see all of our accounts on the second page if you want)

I don't think i'm better at memory access but i am clearly better at looking up the right word in the brain. My host will be trying to tell some story to me and will get a little lost for speech at times, but i can always just pull the correct name for things, even if i don't know the definition. He cares nothing about celebrities but i'm curious about who everyone is, so i can usually just find the right name for a face, even though i haven't heard anything particularly about them.

 

I'm not sure if i have a better memory per se. There's a distinct difference between facts i've just looked up versus facts i've actually mastered and personally understood. But i'm only a few years old compared to my host being decades old, so there's a lot of memories that are strictly his original life which i can find, but don't mean the same to me.

@Everyone so far

 

Interesting responses you guys! So far it is split fifty fifty. There is a tendency toward more short term memory recall over like super far back memories and stuff.

Oh man, have I got a story here.

 

So this one time, around half a year ago, I was talking to Twi in public transport. It was a mostly boring ride, but when passing through the old part of our city I have tried to remember this one word in English that describes old, run down buildings. Naturally, after an unsuccessful attempt on my side, she volunteered to help. So she just shuts up for something like one or two minutes, but I can "hear" the gears in my mind turning. Even though that I wasn't having any conscious thoughts at that moment. And after that pause, she just fires out one word - "decrepit".

 

I remembered that I knew that word existed, but I didn't know what it meant at that moment. After another uneventful walk home, all the while keeping that word in my head, I still didn't know what it meant. So I sit down, fire up this magical abacus that lets me post on the internet, and go to google. Needless to say, from that moment I'm sure that she can access my memory sometimes better than I do.

 

Lots of theories both from her and me on how that could be possible, but that's just pointless banter without any formidable evidence.

Cool!

 

That's it, I am going to help Davie with his decrepit old memory from now on. That's assuming I can remember myself what he is trying to remember so I can help him with his memory.

If he can't remember it from the top of his head, you won't be capable of either. Maybe it's just me, but I use associative memory to find the last known "link" to that memory. Memory after memory, you're gonna have to dig all that crap out.

That sounds labor intensive. I am not a laborious person. Nope.

      I keep reading, especially on the IRC that certain users have had trouble getting their tulpa's voice to sound different from their own. So far its just a wait and see kind of event. Hoping and praying that the voice will start to sound different. I did not do this.
       
      I am going to tell you something that every other guide has told you not to do, ever. That if you were to do what I say then some unholy god/admin from the mighty tulpa overwatchers will smite you. This is not true.
      I am going to tell you to parrot. That's right you are going to move your tulpa's lips like a puppet.
       
      This is not a requirement but I suggest that you fully visualize you'r tulpa before you begin Voxxing. (That is the word for Forcing a voice) If you can fully visualize and render your tulpa before you begin voxxing it will be much easier as you can get down the lip and jaw movements.
       
      In your head you will need to sound out some phrases and stories. It doesnt matter what it is as long as you can remember it and repeat it over and over again. Go ahead and say this phrase to your tulpa and have him/her repeat it. Here is the tricky part. Imagine the voice you want your tulpa to possess. It will sound weak and hazy, not very strong like the voice you already have in your head. This is ok. Keep doing this and continue to focus on the voice.
       
      This is the longest step of this process is that which seems like no progress is being made. It took me personally six hours for the process to begin to work. The voice will start to sound more clear and profound. Now you might think it may be easy to mix up signs of sentience with this. Its not. When your tulpa becomes sentient his/her voice will be able to talk over yours. Like a friend talking to you. It is very distinct and the only way you can not notice it is if you are completely doped up. Even then Its hard. I know.
       
      After you are able to get this voice solid and firm enough you can continue onto narration, or personality if your a stiff.. Have your tulpa repeat what you say every so often to keep the voice in your head. I did this and I was able to skip all of the horrible hassle of trying to deviate my tulpas voice from my own. Also her voice may deviate from the original, my tulpa has.
       
      ENJOY

      This discussion originated from the thread Did I give the right answer? -Cat_ShadowGriffin
       

       

       

       
      the "controlling" is somewhat unconscious I guess, just.. like if you imagine something (visualize) totally made up, you're doing that, even if it can happen/continue really naturally, like that
       
      tulpas just have a little more going on y'know

      I have a romantic relationship with my tulpa, but I would like to feel the emotions of love that she feels for me (I guess this is related in some way to the sentience)
      She is not vocal yet, she has a certain level of judgment and I communicate with her through music, but I want to communicate in other ways with my tulpa so that she can transmit me the emotions of love she feels for me. How else can I communicate with my tulpa?

      Recently, I’ve been feeling head pressures, which I believe to be my Tulpa gaining sentience. However, as of late the feeling has been weaker and I don’t feel it as much. I was wondeing what this might be and what I could do to fix it.

      I'm not sure if how I hear my tulpas voice is correct.
       
      It sounds exactly like my own, quiet and in the back of my head. I can only hear her when I really focus on listening, and I feel sometimes I accidently parrot her responses. It's because her talking is very quick and very far back under my mental "layers" of voice and is hard to hear. Im not sure if this is promising, or is actually my mind voice having like multiple layers if that's normal?
