Tulpa and brain chemicals


Recommended Posts

So I was tulpaforcing awhile ago and asked my tulpa to give me a headache on certain parts of my head. I asked her to give me a headache on the left side of my head, and she did, and other parts of my head where I asked. She was able to pretty accurately cause pain in the areas I asked. So I then asked her to cause pain in my left kneecap, it took a little while but I did feel pain there. I also asked her to stop a headache earlier today and she did, she couldn't stop it for a very long period of time however. I did this to see just what exactly she could do and how much control she had.

 

Now before I go further, I should explain a little on how headaches work. Basically, during a headache your brain produces less serotonin, a chemical that controls constriction of blood vessels, among other things. When levels of serotonin drop, your brain releases neuropeptides, which cause blood vessels to become dilated and inflamed. This is, in a nutshell, what causes a headache. A tulpa must release more serotonin to prevent and stop the headaches, or release endorphins or dopamine. I can only be sure that a tulpa can control serotonin based on my own experiment though.

 

So basically your tulpa can cause your brain to release different levels of chemicals. When your tulpa gives you an emotional response, like being happy, the chemicals that cause that are dopamine, endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin. I can't be sure how many of these a tulpa can control, but at the very least one can manipulate serotonin.

 

I would like to know what chemicals a tulpa can actually manipulate and to what extent. I doubt it would be possible to narrow down every chemical in your brain a tulpa can control though as there are far too many and many chemicals can do various things. I'm more interested in how they can manipulate endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, and to what extent. I would try to do these all myself but I'm not very far into creating a tulpa, so a more developed one would probably be able to manipulate these various chemicals better.

 

So a few questions.

 

1. Say your in pain, has anyone ever had a tulpa stop this pain for you? And to what degree was the pain before and after your tulpa tried to alleviate it? How long can your tulpa prevent the pain?

 

2. Has anyone ever had an extreme feeling of happiness from their tulpa? And I mean a very extreme happiness. How long can your tulpa give you this feeling?

 

3. Has anyone ever had their tulpa give them an intense feeling of euphoria? How long did it last?

1. Yes. About a month ago, when I went on a week-long vacation to D.C., I had the bright idea of only bringing a pair of minimalist shoes. Absolutely destroyed my feet the first two days, but was still stuck walking for about 9 hours daily. I pretty much relied on Linda for the entirety of the 3rd-5th days (maybe two hours at a time), at which point I gave in and bought a pair of regular shoes. On a scale of 1-10, it was probably about an 8 on its own. Linda brought it down to a 2 or 3, little more than a dull ache that occasionally spiked up to a 6 for a second or two. Jumped right back up to an 8 whenever she stopped.

 

2/3. Yes to both, probably the most intense thing I've ever experienced. I can't say with much certainty how long it lasted, but I would guess about a minute. It definitely felt much longer though.

I would say claiming a tulpa is able to completely control the release of neurochemicals and their respective inhibitors is a bit of a stretch. While it is possible control pain tolerance to a certain extent with enough training, it's only ever on a psychological level as far as we know. The control of pain tolerance has been practiced in certain Buddhist disciplines for quite awhile now, and is definitely possible, but we understand very little on how exactly it works. So I would say with enough time and effort it's possible to use a tulpa as an aid for pain control, but only to an extent. Now that's not to completely dismiss the idea of tulpae having a strong connection to neurochemistry, as it's what I believe would be the only way to obtain scientific proof of tulpae existing as I've mentioned in previous threads.

 

There's quite a few reasons it'd be highly unlikely, if not completely impossible for a tulpa to interfere with neurochemistry, but I think the most obvious reason is that it would be impossible to control inhibitory neurotransmitter receptors. Unless a tulpa can conjure any particular inhibitory neurotransmitter out of thin air, there would be no way to control the release of chemicals into the synaptic cleft. Specifically for pain control, you can't simply shut off serotonin transporters without serotonin inhibitors, which means there's nothing stopping it from dispersing into the synaptic cleft and binding to serotonin receptors when you are in pain. Likewise, there's no way to inhibit inhibitory neurotransmitter cells from releasing into the synapse and binding to their respective chemical's transporter.

 

But entertaining the idea (for now), a tulpa would be able to also control GABA, glutamate, anandamide, and any neurochemicals reactive with μ-opioid receptors, to cover most major chemicals related to pain. But in theory a tulpa should be able to control literally every native and non-native neurochemical and inhibitory neurochemical equally well if they were able to alter neurochemistry in the first place. That would also mean they would be able to alter the effects of tryptamines and phenethylamines, completely changing drug trips. They'd also be able to create certain natural highs to mimic drugs like THC, since they'd be able to have an endless supply of anandamide feeding into inhibitory neurotransmitter cell's receptors, replacing it as it dissolves.

 

If this is at all possible, it'd be one of the largest breakthroughs in history for pharmaceutical companies, the DEA, and any stoner with a little patience.

Hm. interesting. so theoretically , a tulpa can physically harm you to some extent?

 

More importantly , what are its limits and how much control do you have over this?

Well, it's all a theory I came up with only a couple of hours ago. Though I think that a tulpa might be able to control some brain chemicals and be able to manipulate them to an extent, that's how I think they at least cause/stop headaches. I don't think it can all be completely psychological, though I could be wrong. I think it's worth experimenting with to see just what a tulpa would be able to do however.

A strong sense of excitement (euphoria, then?) once when I first showed my tulpa our first wonderland. Also a really strong wave of this sense of attachment towards my tulpa happened early on in the process.

I'm on the psychological boat, seeing it the way that a tupper can only do things as far as the subconscious permits them, like with the Buddhists. Anyone care to buy some equipment so that we may scan our tupperfested brains and confirm the scientific theories?

 

As for the extreme happiness/euphoria, I've had it several times now, and I get small "bursts" of happiness now and then. Hugging and kissing (and sex) really helps on this area, for the journal. How can you expect anything less from a pink pony?

For science, I'd love to see one of the more experienced users, with a fully sentient, fully vocal, fully imposed tulpa go in to get a MRI scan. It'd be interesting to watch the brain's activity while doing various tulpa activities. (Tulpaforcing, possession, tulpa causing pains/emotional responses, etc.) Of course, that'd require a scientist actually having any interest in tulpae, but still, it'd be interesting to see.

Ok, so I tried something earlier today. I asked Nola to try to give me a feeling of being on pain pills. I got a feeling of being on maybe a low-medium dose of codeine. Comparable to about 20mg of hydrocodone, not sure how much it would be as far as codeine goes since I've never actually taken less than 300mg of codeine at a time before. Basically what I'm trying to say is it was about as intense as 20mg of hydrocodone, but the buzz was very codeine like, even got what felt like the codeine itch. I got the warm feeling, starting at the head and chest, and it spread to the rest of my body. I got a decent euphoria and felt the nod you experience on pk's.

 

Even if this is all psychological it sure was fun.
