Slipper March 3 Share March 3 I've been thinking about this a lot over the years, but do you think all tulpas work the same or are we just describing our experiences differently? Ultimately, we're all stuck with our experience and how other people can describe theirs. I've heard a few different explanations of people describing how tulpas can exist, with some similarities and some differences. Some people describe them as a new being grown from their thoughts, others say its tricking your mind into believing someone's there, others believe its a spiritual practice, and others see tulpas as another part of their own consciousness. And then there's literally everything in-between. As you can see, some of those beliefs are contradictory, yet here we are, all talking and describing very similar experiences. I don't bring this up as a discussion on the legitimacy of any of these beliefs, but I wonder if these different belief systems cause different ways tulpas present themselves. For example, would someone who views their tulpa as just as imaginary friend, who can talk to them just like someone who considers their tulpa a separate person, not be able to switch? Or would someone who's tulpa is viewed as a separate entity from the host's conscious be able to do more than a tulpa who is considered deeply tied to host's consciousness? Essentially, do tulpas function differently in the mind based on the host's personal beliefs? Are all tulpas the same thing, given limitations by the host's beliefs, or are we creating different types of tulpas with actual differences? I know this is pretty strange sounding, but I tried to explain my question as thoroughly as I could. Any thoughts relating to this topic would be appreciated.
