Slipper May 15, 2022 Share May 15, 2022 (edited) Hello! Uhm... feels a bit weird to be doing this. So, we've basically always wanted to start a progress report since the day we first joined Tulpa.info. However, by the time we joined Mordecai was already a year old and we didn't really have "progress" to speak of. We also aren't the greatest conversationalists (mainly me, I struggle to hold conversations a lot) so it's difficult for us to do something like this, where we're basically just talking about nonsense for large lengths of time. However, we both very much enjoy talking about tulpamancy, hearing from other people, and writing in our super old diary. So, we figured a progress report would be a great place to combine all three of those things into one place. Hopefully all that is enough to fill up a few paragraphs every couple of weeks. Should be. God I hope we aren't that boring. I suppose I should list a few interesting or important details for context, or things that you may otherwise find interesting or would like to ask about: Us in General: We are in our early 20's, from rural America We draw, animate, write... although not very well. Aside from here, only a few things we've made in the past 5 years has left our sketchbooks or hard drive We ran a blog on Tumblr for a few years where we theorized and tried to explain different aspects of tulpamancy About Slipper (host): There is very little interesting about me, aside from individual funny anecdotes I've been experiencing thoughtforms for... nearly a decade now, however they wouldn't last very long. They were always characters I was obsessed with from media I enjoyed, as I have a very bad habit of daydreaming more than most people. I thought it was DID when I was little, but after a few years found out about tulpas and it explained everything much better. When Mordecai showed up, I was very dedicated in making sure he didn't end up fading like the others. It took a long time, but we eventually got him stable. About Mordecai (tulpa): Mordecai's birthday is December 16th, 2015. He's about 6 1/2 years old as of right now As explained earlier, most of the characters I interacted with were from media I was obsessed over. Mordecai started as Sans from Undertale, before opting to change his appearance into something more neutral/original Feel free to ask or bring up any kind of related topic to our posts. We really love to talk and discuss things. ----- Okay so a few days ago we were looking up some old YouTube videos from a particular member of the community who was banned for their work with hypnosis and cults. Mordecai and I felt very interested in how this person ended up because they were a pretty big inspiration in us making our Tumblr blog a few years ago, and this person had actually messaged us about doing a collab shortly before they were banned from multiple tulpa communities. At the time, there was a lot of discussion about the safety of their guided meditation videos, however many said that all of the harmful stuff was hidden away and not available to the public. After finding a link to their archive, I found this wasn't the exact case. A lot of the allegations of there being manipulation in some of the meditations was true, however... the method of this was... a bit silly. For example, the meditation would be several paragraphs of a relaxing, self-actualization-type script, while halfway through it would switch to something about "serving the master", aka the banned individual. Mordecai found this entertainingly bizarre, if not a bit disturbing. He brought up how strange it was that a person who spent so much time trying to prove the independence of their tulpa would turn around and also make scripts for making their tulpa more subservient to them. Makes you wonder what caused them to change their opinion so much. We've never been very fond of guided mediation, in fact we meditate very little to begin with. But, we've both been very curious as to how effective something like that would be. Wouldn't you notice the script suddenly shifting into something completely different than you intended on listening to? Or are other's meditation so deep, they can't even notice it? How dangerous would these "hidden messages" be? Other than that, nothing else is coming to mind at the moment. We're just kind of chilling and between interests at the moment. Also, Mordecai has been complaining about how he can tell my jokes are coming before I say them. Apparently it takes up to 30 seconds from the start of the joke for me to finish it sometimes. All I can say is, sucks to be him. Edited June 27, 2022 by Slipper Slipper (cringelord host) and Mordecai (the brain gremlin).
