Biotechnology October 22, 2013 Share October 22, 2013 "As Christians, at the very least we would hope that people would think we're insane. Because if enough people think we're insane, then maybe a few of those will become intrigued. And of those who are intrigued, maybe some will become inspired" - James MacPherson Honestly, having people thinking we're 'insane' for making tulpa is fine. Just as long as this community keeps user submitted content at a PG level and shitposting at a minimum, we won't be seen as insane degenerates. Might be about time to try find and delete any threads talking about things that should be kept in the bedroom, and threads that seem like they've been written by a 12 year old on a sugar high (even if they are slightly on-topic). I don't have a problem with the community making tulpa based off of cartoon characters, the only problem I find I have with the community is that the average age of users here feels to be ~14 years old. If we could find what is making people seem childish on tulpa.info and change that before we start getting into the media more (which will happen if the community keeps growing... Someone like Tanya who is interested in this sort of stuff with stumble upon us and write something in the future), we have a chance at reducing the risk of getting more children here, and being seen as a bunch of kids making imaginary friends. Unless it's just me that feels the community is like this that is. Also, this coming from the person that has bragged about getting mentioned in the NYT, there seem to be a few members out there that just crave attention. I'm sure that there are a few people that have just made up their progress with their tulpa, which is bad, but I'm talking about the people with tulpa that just scream for attention with it. If that could be cut down too that'd be nice. Anyway, just seems like these articles are giving us a chance to go improve our image before tulpa.info itself is mentioned in an article. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thoughtform#Modern_perspective 'I say 'soul making' Soul as distinguished from an Intelligence- There may be intelligences or sparks of divinity in millions- but they are not souls until they acquire identities, till each one is personality itself' -John Keats, 1819 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
