How would dementia affect a system?

I have an interesting question that to my current knowledge hasn't been asked yet, how would dementia affect a system?  If the host developed dementia I feel like that would cause a massive problem for everyone else aswell since it deteriorates memories and the mind in general. 

Hi, I'm Michael, I'm a relatively new tulpamancer interested in diving as deep as I can into this realm of thoughtforms.

I'm Shade, Michael's first tulpa and girlfriend. I'm fairly reserved but love philosophy and psychonautics. 

I'm Dawn, I'm the most active tulpa in the system and also the most fun loving/party girl type. 

In our system there is also Ember and Spark, Cinderella, Astra, Scarlet, Jade, Rarity, AquaIgnis, Tony, and Majima

Oof, I hate to even speculate this. But I imagine the distinctions between who is who will become blurry and then completely collapse.

 

That's an interesting point I didn't consider. It could very well be possible for the individuality of the system members to melt into a singular mess of a person in the later stages.

I wonder if memory loss could weaken and strengthen certain personalities, or make switching happen more automatically. Like what if for a day, the brain forgot my hosts friends, but remembered my friends, and maybe me, but not him. I also wonder about mixing. Maybe weird combos or personality. Like it remembers me but not my host but my host’s friends but not my friends. I also wonder if new personalities might be created and removed more spontaneously, as a result of a brain accustomed to making tulpas but now forgetting, mixing, wanting to fill a void left by people forgotten. It’s interesting. I guess it’s scary but I also think I’ll always be in there somewhere. We’d just get more median ig.

Meaningful words, I'm here!

This is an interesting point. I can imagine how that would be mental hell for all parties involved. Being born and thrust into the front, then being forgotten within an hour, over and over again. Multiple tulpas forming at once and nobody to explain to them whats happening. 100 minds made and vanished within a day. Worse is that potentially no sense of self could exist, like many different personalities not even able to tell who they are, so they all make an ocean of thoughts with no stable being to tell them apart.  It is all speculation but it paints a grim picture, even by dementia standards.

You could write a novel off of an idea that grim. 

Hey there, the name's Bryan. In system Re:Body(In order of the rainbow): 

Sean, Esper, Blinky, Compact, Janey, Kyle, Gwen'd, Gwen, Emily, Rollin, Waynin, Trease, Layy, Justin, Chloe, Zachery, and Elliot. 

I've been here a while. Much longer than I thought I'd be. Our system was founded October 2nd, 2018. In early 2020, we decided that due to our systems exponential growth, we'd limit who would be active. Now, every month, we do a check to see who wishes to be in dormancy and who wishes to be active. Currently, for the month of February, 2022, we've got myself(Bryan), Janey(Co-host), Emily, Layy, Chloe, Trease, Blinky, and Esper(sub-rep). After over 2 long years, we can finally switch :) 

 

Bryan is currently swapped in as host, Esper is sub-rep.
