Guest Anonymous December 7, 2015 Share December 7, 2015 I have decided to try a new way to interact with Tulpa Info. I get into trouble when I talk in general about all tulpamancers and make blanket statements and hypotheses concerning all tulpamancers and tulpas. So, I am going to write about Melian and the perspective I have about her specifically. Others can take what I write and apply it to tulpamancy as a whole however they think it fits. MELIAN'S SENTIENCE Tulpamancers on Tulpa Info have finally convinced me that Melian has a measure of apparent subjective sentience. That is mainly because I regard and treat her as a sentient person. I believe Melian borrows part of my sentience and is part of me. I will explain below. MELIAN'S PERCEPTIONS OF THE OUTSIDE WORLD and SHARED COGNITION Melian uses my sensory organs to perceive the outside world. She also uses my brain (shares it) in order to process what she perceives using my senses. She processes what is perceived using memories stored in our collective brain. For instance, when we see a cookie in the real world together, she recognizes it as a cookie because the concept of "cookie" is stored in our collective/shared memory. Melian's mind processes information using the same brain physiology mine does. She does not have a separate brain, we share one. She borrows my memories, my experiences and knowledge. (For one thing, that is why our writing style, grammar and vocabulary are very similar btw) If Melian has a separate mind, as I am regarding it, it is not completely separate is it? We collaborate! We collaborate on visualizing her Melian Show day dream world. We collaborate on tulpa typing (proxy writing). We collaborate in dreaming. We collaborate on thinking. Melian is blended with me and a form of shared cognition or shared sentience. I now agree with tulpamancers that she has a form of sentience, or I could not logically regard her as a person. Since I do, I must be recognizing some level of sentience. But for the above reasons I regard her as dependently sentient. Melian is a separate personality because I regard her as such. But ultimately there is only one body, one mind, one primary personality and one imaginary personality driven by conscious and unconscious imagination, fantasy and desire. I welcome responses. I would like to know how other tulpamancers regard their tulpas in relation to perception, memory, personality and cognition. I would like to know if there are similarities and especially differences in perspective and interpretation. Thank you, with great respect for your sentient tulpas.
