Are sentient thoughtforms less independent than we think?

Messing with your sense of identity is always potentially dangerous if you aren't ready to deal with it. Doesn't even need to be tulpas or headmates either, they're just one of many ways you can come to question your sense of self.


The "general consensus on people who MADE tulpas" you've noticed is due to those people all following similar guidelines, ie being told to believe certain things, that the community has created and shaped over time to create that general experience. I assure you it has nothing to do with truth or most-likely-scenarios. That's the same as seeing other countries as strange because you're so sure of your own's culture, but really they're all as arbitrary as the next. One could work more smoothly and beneficially than the others, however.


Fun fact though, a lot of it was shaped by people like me who never followed those rules in the first place, because our tulpas predate tulpas. That, and people who first pioneered the community and had no idea what they were doing. So like I said, we will always accept and accommodate new (reasonable) input, so we can keep growing and encompassing more different people with our "culture". Better to accept and in result be changed by lots of different people like America than to shut out those different from us believing we're already as good as can be,

like Nazi Germany. yeahIwentthere


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.

Wow, this thread has gone into some deep discussions I never foresaw when I wrote the OP. Neato! This might be a good place for me to mention that Davie went through some psychological head trips when I first went on the internet in 2013 and he started telling people about me. When he started having to describe me and talk about the past, it drudged up a lot of old feelings about loneliness and anxiety and trying to escape from the world into his own mind. These were sometimes places that he wanted to forget about. It sent us into a tail spin for a while. Another soulbond-tulpa, King Justin of Arisdale, who is not a member of this forum, helped me and Davie survive it all somehow. It was actually kinda profound. It is interesting that it took another tulpa to understand what was happening. Note: this happened before we knew they were called tulpas. Anyways, Justin and I meditated together or imagined we were meditating together and it helped calm it all down. Davie meditated too. We need to get back to that!


I think any time you start mucking around in old painful memories or especially with the unconscious, you can reawaken feelings of anxiety or depression or fear or any number of things. Since tulpas (or any autonomous mental persona of any kind) are closely tied to the unconscious mind, they can have that effect. I base that statement on something we read in writings by the psychologist Carl Jung. He said one must use great caution when using his Active Imagination technique in which the patient contacts internal autonomous personas.


Then yeah, you can really wreck havoc with your concepts of identity. That so makes sense. For a person that is not ready for it, wowy. I can see that could be a major problem, especially if the tulpa develops quickly.
