The No-Bullshit Tulpa Book

Like others have said, I feel like the fiction thing is misleading. If you want to cover yourself legally, you should use something more like this.

 

"Empirical" is not synonymous with fiction. "Bullshit" is. If someone tells a story about a giant frog that ate his cat, his friends are likely to say "He was just bullshiting", meaning "His story was fictional". If you're trying to present a book without bullshit, you shouldn't tell us it's bullshit right at the beginning.

 

It's not entirely accurate to say that "visualization has nothing to do with hallucinations". It actually has quite a lot to do with hallucination.

 

Also, where you say "If you came here because you have no friends in real life", I feel like you're alienating a fairly large chunk of the community.

 

Interesting to see that Vipassana has caught on. I think you could just as easily call this a book about Vipassana as a book about tulpas. But it's up to the reader whether that's a good thing.

 

All that being said, there is a lot of overlap between Vipassana and forcing, and following the practices of Vipassana and of this book will help many hosts.

Well yeah, we're all neckbeards with spaghetti dropping from our pockets. But on a serious note, there's a grain of truth in that. Very few of us are the picture of mental health, whether or be maladaptive daydreaming, ADHD, depression, autism ... or social anxiety. I've gotten PMs from people who are so uncomfortable with posting because everyone else will see their posts that they communicate entirely by PM.

Outside of what others have already mentioned, I don't have too many complaints to make. Someone might find it to be useful, so I'll approve this for Resources. Use sushi's link to make a better disclaimer (you probably don't need the fiction bit in there at all), and feel free to drop a post in here at some point to let us know when you're finished with this.
