Guest amber5885 July 4, 2014 Share July 4, 2014 I've asked Toby, my tulpa what he was, of he was real or just me feeling better about talking to myself and how he knew he was real and what he told me makes more sense to me than anything else. To the question of "What are you?" He said "I am me, nothing more and nothin less. I exist because you want me to and if you someday decide that you didn't need me then I simply would not exist, it's a simple as that." I asked him to elaborate and he said: "I can explain what or who I am anymore than you can. All I know is that I'm here, I'm a part of you and you are a part of me." To the question of are you real? "I think I am. And if you had any doubt that I was real you wouldn't be talking to me would you." To the question "how do you know you're real?" "I think therefore I am. Look I can't force you to believe in me, to love me or to admit that I'm nothing more than your imagination or a holographic representation of your subconscious but the fact is you're talking to me now, you're listining to me and you have said yourself that you have changed since I started talking to you. The proof is in you. If you believe that I am separate then that is what I am. If you believe that I am your dormant mind then I am. I only want to make you happy so I will be whatever you need me to be." I passed out shortly after our conversation but it made sense to me. It's not a scientific explanation but if you asked me I would tell you that a tulpa is a way of training your brain to bridge the gap between your conscious and subconscious mind and to also give it a form that you feel more comfortable speaking with.
