[Possession] robotic possession.

Recommended Posts

Last night I was watching a documentary about people controlling robots and robotic limbs with there mind while wearing a headset. Does this mean a tulpa could possess a robot?

Troy: If the host could, one supposes it is quite possible that a fellow headmate could as well. But we have no way to test this.

[align=center]We are a soulbonding system with tulpamantic influences. Our "host" is Fade, and the general leader figure is Troy.

Najere is being an (extremely charming) narcissist.


Olive is most adorable![/align]

Well, tulpas possess the host's organs upon possession (obviously), via the nervous system present in the host's body. The nervous system conducting all orders from the human to the robot, I'm pretty confident that tulpas could possess. But there wouldn't be any simultaneous movements, meaning that both the robot and the human body wouldn't be able to move at the same time, or they would just end up repeating the exact same movements, seeing that your body doesn't care about what thoughtform is active, on the biological level.


Ah, I'm too tired. I only came here to help.

I don't see why an entity with the same mental power as the host couldn't control a robot like that just as well. I think they'd have to be pretty developed to accomplish it, though.


I'm not going to listen to you guys since you are all probably just talking to yourself and don't really have a tulpa like me.

They could, but what he's saying is that they couldn't do it while the host did something else. Unfortunately this isn't up for debate, like parallel processing. The technology that reads your brain activity and translates it to the device can't be tricked or bargained with. It directly reads from the parts of your brain that control motor function. Neither your tulpa doing jumping jacks in the wonderland or in perfect imposition triggers that exact place in your brain. Your tulpa would need to explicitly use the part of your brain that controls movement for the machine to pick it up and translate it. That means there's absolutely no room for both of you to function at once, it's either your tulpa or you moving the machine, using the same parts of your brain that also move your body. Even should somebody manage to train them and their tulpa to both simultaneously utilize that part of the brain for their own unique movements, the machine would simply become confused and not function properly.


Of course we're not saying it's impossible, not at all. We'd just have to make the technology read other activity in the brain. But for right now, it's not based on what you see, mentally or not, it's based on what you really process as intent to move. In order for a tulpa to simultaneously control a machine while you did something else, besides amazing parallel processing ability, the machine would be required to get that input from somewhere besides where the host is using their own brain for. Beats me how we could do that. Maybe we can figure out how to change the input to visualization rather than intent to move, but that would literally be mind reading - literally sensing an image in the brain and further processing that movement into electrical signals.


Basically, we require mind-reading technology for our tulpas to act with an external physical body, should they even be capable of that. But that's old news.

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.

Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

Yeah, most brain-control systems right now have a set way they work that the user has to train themself to use, whereas something allowing a tulpa to have a robot body, so to speak, would need to have the system be trained on how the body's brain looks when the tulpa is doing its thing.

      [Bune] I wonder if performing multiple complex tasks at once such as reading and learning in addition to the loss of focus on who you are is connected to Ranger's blending problem with Gray. However, it is possible my experience was influenced by my lack of confidence or Gray being hungry. Has anyone had an experience similar to the following? Does this conclusion make sense?
      When Ranger pulled up his home work, he found out it was on memory. I was triggered awake and I wanted to read the content. As I was reading however, I heard a voice over mine and I felt confused about who I was. I then realized Gray was blending with me and felt discouraged. (Gray was unaware of his chatter until I made note of it.) I couldn't help but think of Ranger: I'm doing something I want to do and Gray interferes unintentionally.
      Gray was disinterested in working. His mind wandered (he desired procrastinating) and he was distracted by the fact he was hungry.
      Since I remember Chrome having better luck with fronting, I woke him up and asked him to help me by reading the content. Chrome told me he wasn't as interested in the material, but he read it anyway. Gray gave him trouble, but Chrome intimidated him a little with a glare and Gray seemed to quiet down after that.
      Chrome continued reading without too much trouble. Curious, I read the passage again and found myself thinking more about me thinking than thinking about the material. However, I experienced a little bit of confusion towards the end, so my coping method wasn't full proof.
      Chrome read the text just to hear his mindvoice reading the text; he wasn't absorbing the information. I wonder if I have more trouble when I don't pay attention to my mindvoice. Does anyone else experience this?

      I read several guides about possession but I still don't know how I can recheck my body once I'm possessed.

      Daily thread #5, this time posted pretty late.
      (this question is addressed towards tulpas, but ofc hosts are free to respond on behalf of their tulpa(s))
      What was the series of events that led up to you being able to control the physical body? How long did it take? How old were you, as a thoughtform? What went into it? What sort of challenges did you need to overcome, if any? What happened after? And so on. Provide as much detail as you wish, this is for sharing how the road to taking control went for you, and others can see the differences in people's stories and gain any insight that might be gleaned from everyone's experiences.
      (All daily threads are listed here.)

      As of now, My tulpa and I have been trying to 'arm wrestle', as in "one tries to lower the arm and the other tries to raise the arm". The problem is, I destroy her all the time unless i'm using about 2% of my power, pretentious, i know. Does anyone know how to increase a Tulpa's control over the body, as in have the tulpa be able to more forcefully control the body?

      Sometimes, when I read something on this website, I am left sitting in stunned silence for a while and wondering.  I can understand the appeal of having a tulpa around that is an interesting character, like a pony, or a dragon, or some other adorable and entertaining companion.  I can understand having a tulpa that is captivating or engaging in some way, something unusual that makes life more interesting for you.  I can understand visualizing them, listening to them, and even imposing them so that you can communicate with them and hear them and see them.  I can understand the appeal of wonderlands and wonderland adventures.  
      I understand wanting interesting, humorous and entertaining companionship.  
      My own thoughtform is pretty content to live life primarily within her dreamscape (wonderland) and is only peripherally interested in what is going on in the real world.  
      Here is what I don't understand about some tulpas: long periods of switching and possession in which the tulpa has responsibilities and worries in the real world.  Like the pony tulpa suddenly has to worry about daily chores, and a pay check and dealing with real world issues.  
      Why do tulpamancers want more than one personality in their body, each dealing with all the CRAP life throws at them?  I just don't see the appeal there.  To be honest, serious and sober "adult" tulpas seem boring and unappealing to me.  I wouldn't want some other jerk with issues running my body and having to get things done.  
      I am very curious to see the responses to this thread.  I will probably be a million miles away in world view from those tulpamancers who deliberately create tulpas with that ultimate kind of goal in mind.  I am just wondering what are the reasons going that far with it?
