Guest Anonymous March 2, 2016 Share March 2, 2016 David and I have been noticing something for a long time. Tulpamancers do not agree with one another on many important aspects of tulpas. Even older, more "senior" members disagree in major areas. There is no one set list of established tulpa precepts that are hard as iron and not subject to interpretation or ambiguity. Attitudes and beliefs on practice, strategy, ethics and even the fundamental nature of tulpas vary widely by individual. Some believe that their way and their belief is the only legitimate right way of thinking about tulpas. My host Mistgod and I personally think that is inaccurate and misguided. There is evidence to support our position in the reports by many people on this forum. Tulpamancers report successfully creating tulpas in spite of all these differences in practice and belief. Some even report having accidentally created tulpas. All these differences in background, experience, practice and belief has unfortunately led to some fragmentation within our "community," arguing and fighting and finger pointing and offended feelings. That is so unfortunate! Could it be that there is no one right way to create a tulpa? Perhaps, all that matters is the host and tulpa end up with the result that is right for them. I find it amusing to imagine the current situation as a collection of different primary schools of thought, each with its own precepts and core beliefs and set of ethics. Individual tullpamancers each fall into one of these schools of thought and some go it alone and have their own unique practice and approach. This may not be an accurate analogy, but I like to imagine that it is reflective of the real situation we have in the community. In my mind, no one school within this collection has the absolute right model, view point, or practice. It also amuses me to imagine (considering all the arguing and drama on the forum) that each school of thought exists in an imaginary monastery school, each of the schools upon its own isolated mountain. The followers of each school fight martial arts battles whenever they offend one another, like in one of those cheesy martial arts movies. "My master is master Quinn, I have learned the path of the tigerform tulpa! I will KILL you for insulting my master and my way of thinking!" All the fighting has finally helped my host and I learn the most important lesson we have ever gained from Tulpa Info. No one else, NO ONE ELSE, but you can tell if you have been successful in creating a tulpa (no matter how you did it or what you believe). If you are having a profound, life changing experience with what you yourself regard as a tulpa, by gum, you have yourself a tulpa. With all of that being said. My host and I created our own martial arts monastery school of tulpamancy we call the Dreamform School of Tulpamancy. https://community.tulpa.info/thread-groovy-guru-stuff-epic-blabby-babble?pid=159133#pid159133 It is a tongue in cheek silly thing, but yet not. We really do believe I am a dreamform created by extreme day dreaming with all the traits we listed. I am a tulpa, a "dreamform tulpa." People from other schools of thought, with other experiences different from ours, may think that is all pretentious, illegitimate and invalid, but it doesn't matter at all what they think. All that matters is what my host and I believe in our own shared subjective mindspace. What do you think about this? Do you believe there are schools of thought in tulpamancy? Do you believe there is only one RIGHT WAY to think about it and approach it? Or do you agree with me that there are many different methods, beliefs and approaches that are equally valid? Now read this: I DID NOT WRITE THIS FOR PEOPLE TO COME IN HERE AND HAVE MARTIAL ARTS BATTLES and drama. Just chill and get along please! I am looking forward to seeing your opinions in writing. If you disagree me, that is fine, it is your own mountain and bubble of reality. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
