Ranger January 18 Share January 18 I saw this post in LOTPW and given the attention towards it I felt deserved its own thread. 14 hours ago, ringgggg said: You know what I wonder about a lot? People who unintentionally create tulpas Its usually the idea of a character they have in their head and their personality gets so elaborate to the point where it becomes self-autonomous and the person starts to call it a voice in their head That part to me is baffling because these guys don’t know what kind of crazy feat they achieved Other replies in LOTPW: 14 hours ago, Breloomancer said: it's not that crazy really; i think tulpa-like phenomena are much more common than anyone realizes, but there are different levels of profoundness of experience and not everyone realized that what they are doing is unusual and there haven't been any large scale surveys of the general public on the topic afaik when i was younger, maybe pre teen or so, i made a tulpa-like thoughtform (i don't consider it a tulpa because i made completely separate from the tulpa community) by talking to myself and responding to myself and then eventually the responses became separate from me. they were like my doppelganger and they almost always acted extremely disagreeably and antagonistically, and eventually as they became more self aware, we decided that our dynamic was no good and that we should never talk to each other again 14 hours ago, ringgggg said: 14 hours ago, Breloomancer said: when i was younger, maybe pre teen or so, i made a tulpa-like thoughtform (i don't consider it a tulpa because i made completely separate from the tulpa community) A3 origin story 11 hours ago, TurboSimmie said: That happens to writers a lot! Never quite happened to Phil but I think he got a lot closer to creating an accidental tulpa than he realized on a few occasions in his teens. I'm actually glad the tulpa community didn't exist yet when Phil was a teenager. I'm not saying that teenagers shouldn't create tulpas, but I'm glad Phil was more mature and grounded when he learned what tulpas were. Teenage Phil would have had a difficult time in communities such as these. 😄 I think that roleplay characters are even more likely to become accidental tulpas, just because the "host" spends a lot of time in the character's head thinking about what they will do, think, or feel in various situations. 8 hours ago, Luminesce said: (That's me) Except I do know, and the accidental perfect tulpa creation process I followed shocks me that many other people really do the same, intentionally or not, lol As for myself... well I should probably let Gray make a second post since I am the accidental tulpa. I'm Ranger, GrayTheCat's tulpa, and I love hippos! I also like cake and chatting about stuff. I go by Rosalin or Ronan sometimes. You can call me Roz but please don't call me Ron.
