Daniel's Starter Guide to Creating a Tulpa

Recommended Posts

Three approvals (Sands, waffles, and Linkzelda)


One approval implied since the title changed to something related to content (Averian)


One disapproval, though I figure that might change since it was made based on the implications behind the title. (GGMethos)

Blank vote or approved, if that's really what the majority ends up having voted.


It's a more concise write-up of Fede's method, with a few small additions and very slightly different belief system (compared to Fede's).


A good deal of things I've mentioned for Fede's guide also apply here.


As with Fede's guide, I'm a bit skeptical about skipping the part where you differentiate the origins of the actions (tulpa or yourself) at an unconscious level, that is, learning to perceive actions/thoughts not made by yourself.


While I do believe someone could end up with an independent tulpa following this guide (same as with Fede's), it's a murkier method than one which places independence as the foremost goal. Even JD1215's method which is parroting based still makes an important point about actually stopping and perceiving the tulpa do their own thing. This part is likely one of the trickiest things about making a tulpa, and I'm not sure why would you want to hide from it or hope that one day it just won't matter (and yes, it can be like that for some).


> That means the tulpa you create is only genuine if you believe it to be.


I'm not entirely sure I truly agree with this statement. It makes it seem to me like someone could just "believe" themselves to have a genuine tulpa and poof you get that instagenuinetulpa.


What I think actually happens in the case of genuine tulpas is that the tulpa ends up, sometimes slowly, sometimes faster, convincing the creator of their sentience and independence.


Sometimes, it even happens unintentionally, for example one can hear of people who one day found out they couldn't control their imaginary friends or that they had a mind of their own, had their own agency, memories, seeming autonomy and so on - sometimes there would even be stronger evidence (ex. possession or switching).


Some imaginary friends, roleplay/book characters, ... end up as tulpas, but that's not the same as saying that all of them are tulpas.


One day I was chatting with someone about the nature of a 'genuine' tulpa and we ended up finding a few things that rang true for both of us(paraphrased):

"It's when you truly doubt it, and it still works"

"It feels like you're talking to someone alive"

"Talking to my tulpa pretty much perfectly emulates talking to someone else".


Essentially when the tulpa is autonomous, your disbelief won't make it less genuine than you could make someone else's consciousness less genuine if you stop believing in it (that said, a strong disbelief may make communication iffier/worse).

Two disapproval (GGMethos & Schlondark)


Two blank votes (NotAnonymous & Mayormorgan)

This will remain in the sticky threads for updates on voting from GAT members. Most likely, it may be approved seeing how there's two blank votes, and two disapproval that were mostly based on the initial title of the guide.

Counting CyberD as a blank vote we get 4/6, which is approved.

CyberD, you can tag this with whatever you feel appropriate. Best remove the redundant one from the title.

Right, tag is sorted. Due to the lack of a [Creation] tag I figure [General] will do as it's what was used for other "general" creation guides.

      Teryakywind's Tulpas for Dummies (verified 3/30/21)
      This guide is intended to be a general overview of how to make a tulpa and providing tips to help a fledgeling creator in recognizing responses, a brief overview of the psychological model of tulpas, and a short history of tulpas in the Western world.
      A full glossary probably/maybe/might be added at a later date. Any inquiries about visualization practice, wonderlands, and other forcing-related topics should be covered by any of the multitudes of guides already posted.
      Constructive criticism can be posted here or by contacting me on the IRC.
      Hopefully this doesn't get removed because I'm not sure how submitting this stuff works after GAT was implemented.

      French Version:
      dragonclaw has kindly taken much time to translate this entire guide into French. Currently, this version contains all sections that can be found in the original English version, but lacks the revisions done to other sections in the past.
      Italian Version:
      This version, translated by the user "dreamy" (you'll always be noobdreamer to me) should currently be up-to-date, besides the most recent English update.
      Russian Version:
      This version of the guide was recently translated by the user Leopold, of his own accord. Much thanks to him for the hard work.
      For all the non-English versions of the guide, note the date of creation in comparison to the latest update of the English version. I will not tell you every time one of the versions is not completely up to date. You can figure that out yourself. If it was not up-to-date when it was posted, I will let you know as I did the French version.
      For those of you who want to translate this guide:
      At least not yet. I should have made serious note of this earlier, but I intend to do some major revisions to this guide, such that any translation done now would be severely outdated by the time I'm finished.
      On top of that, there is also a possibility that this guide may be taken down altogether.
      As always, let me know what you think, and if there are any sections you'd like to see added.
      It's worth noting that I still plan to reword/revise some of the paragraphs. I feel like I didn't get my point across as eloquently as possible. But until then, make do with my rough-draft wording.

      A little while back I was tasked with writing a general overview to tulpae and creation.  The idea was to have an up-to-date general guide that didn't push things like hour counts on new users, talked about different methods, and other such things. 
      Took me about a good number of hours in front of a public computer, but I got a draft finished. 
      So, here it is.  The Word file I typed up originally, and a .txt for people who the Word file doesn't work for. 
      Input would be fantastic.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.
      Latest version.

      For those who understands Russian, there's a guide describing so called "gymnasium student" method of tulpa creation.
      Working link: here
      The main idea is to treat tulpa as your own student in gymnasium. Then to organize all stuff, she got to learn/practice, in 3 levels: grade, disciplines for each grade and topics for each discipline. The whole tulpa's training process is considering as a "game of school", with tests, exams and score system. It is necessary for the tulpa to pass a test in every topic, and to pass exam in every discipline to make a progress. Introduced score system takes a role of feedback, which allows you to put extra flexibility to estimated hours per each topic and discipline.
      Also, an attempt to completely rid off "slaveholder" terminology of "forcing", "host" etc. Instead of that, all process is describing in positive terms of "learning", "teacher" and so on.
      Full English translation is possibly to come in future.
