Tulpa sentience discussion


Recommended Posts

Guest Anonymous

People use the terminology available in an attempt to explain their experiences. There's nothing to claim. There's very little objective data, aside from brain activity; hardly anything to discuss, is there?

Sharing each-others opinions/points of view and discussing whether these can fit together ?

If we think this way, there is almost never anything to discuss am I wrong?

No animosity intended ever

I suggest not giving a fuck. Knowing what we are does not change what we are, so if the answer gives strife, then why bother? While Doc is confident in the existence of tulpas due to some overcomplicated psychology and neurology shit that I'm sure he could explain but is too lazy to do it, I meanwhile don't care. If I do exist, that's awesome, but if I don't, it's not like I'm around to care that I don't exist.

 

So instead, I just spend my time hedonistically doing whatever I please in the wonderland, though I do like to help Doc with whatever he needs.

Doc: Childhood friend turned servitor gone rogue turned host who's bad at feeling emotions.

Meti: Overly lewd Tupper.

CT, who is also called Jeremy: Original personality whose default emotion is anger.

Maybe the original slogan of this site should have been "For Philosophy!" instead of "For Science!" (:

I saw it, I just didn't feel I can say much to that. Lets see... I guess the problem with people trying to claim there are multiple people inside their head based on their behavior as they switch, is that it is indistinguishable from faking it. Neuroplasticity has been shown to occur, but the question is how much can a human brain rewrite itself. Is there a limit, and if so, is a scientifically verifiable sentient and independent tulpa within or outside that limit. Maybe anyone saw some relevant papers that tested the limits of neuroplasticity?

That is an excellent example of something I feel the community skips over with some frequency. Yes, a tulpa fronting is indistinguishable from someone faking a tulpa. But the relative odds of the person faking are quite low compared to the odds of the person not faking. So the evidence is still viable. Unless when checking those odds, you discover the person in question is a pathological liar or something.

If a person is essentially in all manners a different person reliably and consistently when switched, identification wise they're a different person. Legally they will always be one person no matter what, which is how it should be. You can try and stop someone from believing they can "be multiple people", but if they already are all you can do is be in denial. They're still for all intents and purposes a different person when switched, assuming the system's got switching down well.

 

I can assure you it's very possible to have utterly independent "personalities" with entirely different thought patterns (ways of thinking) and the like. And unfortunately, deluded as many are, "you" are nothing more than a personality. Legally "you" are your body. A different personality is a different person in the sense of who you are in effect, but it's really up to the individual to decide just how separate a person someone who's switched is from their host. (IE Respecting their desire to have their own body/not be associated with their host's, stuff like that)

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.

This reminds me of a topic that occured a while ago, where I basically said "I'm not my body" and the thread ended pretty badly D:

      This discussion originated from the thread Did I give the right answer? -Cat_ShadowGriffin
       

       

       

       
      the "controlling" is somewhat unconscious I guess, just.. like if you imagine something (visualize) totally made up, you're doing that, even if it can happen/continue really naturally, like that
       
      tulpas just have a little more going on y'know

      I have a romantic relationship with my tulpa, but I would like to feel the emotions of love that she feels for me (I guess this is related in some way to the sentience)
      She is not vocal yet, she has a certain level of judgment and I communicate with her through music, but I want to communicate in other ways with my tulpa so that she can transmit me the emotions of love she feels for me. How else can I communicate with my tulpa?

      Recently, I’ve been feeling head pressures, which I believe to be my Tulpa gaining sentience. However, as of late the feeling has been weaker and I don’t feel it as much. I was wondeing what this might be and what I could do to fix it.

      I'm not sure if how I hear my tulpas voice is correct.
       
      It sounds exactly like my own, quiet and in the back of my head. I can only hear her when I really focus on listening, and I feel sometimes I accidently parrot her responses. It's because her talking is very quick and very far back under my mental "layers" of voice and is hard to hear. Im not sure if this is promising, or is actually my mind voice having like multiple layers if that's normal?

      Last night, Ranger wanted to chat again and I asked if he wanted me to explain some Calculus concepts to him. He expressed interest in fronting during class time, but he was dormant for most of my time in calculus class so I wanted to make sure he was up to speed. Since he knew I figured out something I was confused about, he asked me to talk about the vectors problem I did during my homework.
       
      I was experimenting with the idea of explaining this concept to someone else before Ranger asked for my explanation, so I went with telling him the explanation I already came up with. He told me my explanation didn't make sense to him and he asked for me to use "layman's terms". After going back and forth a few times, I finally showed him that vector addition resulted in the destination point after moving in the direction of the first vector and then in the direction of the other vector. Suddenly everything clicked, and he told me that it made sense to him.
       
      On the first day of class, one of the reasons Ranger was a little uncomfortable was because he never took notes, much less learn Spanish in school before. He was capable of note taking the way I did it, but this bothered him. When we went over the homework the next day, he perked up and seemed more engaged when he gave suggestions for how to organize the notes. I bet he would have been happier if he had a note taking system he had to craft and tweak over time, and I have the feeling our note taking style will change throughout the semester so he's more comfortable with it.
       
      In the past, Ranger has also explained that he likes my brother re-explaining things to him because he said even though he understands "how" or "what", he doesn't know "why". I wonder if this too is about learning the information for himself. Literally, he could explain "the why" if it's a simple fact. Then again, he currently isn't looking for a deeper explanation for why the sky is blue.
       
      Re-learning how to do something isn't always valuable for a Tulpa. For example, Ranger learned how to speak English and write using knowledge I already learned, muscle memory, and accessing my memories. But if a Tulpa is asked to explain something as complex as calculus, do they really have the greatest understanding of the material just because their host understands it?
       
      My ultimate question is this: Even though Tulpas are capable of gaining information and knowledge from their host's memories, is it better if they take the time to process certain things for themselves?
