A tulpa can not cause the host's body to bleed, bruise, etc. However, I've been slapped by her and felt a sort of "pang" on my skin where pain should've been felt, but wasn't

Not sure if this is quite the same thing you're asking about, but I do have an interesting story regarding a time when one of my tulpas... sort of tried to kill me.

 

Berserker thrives on chaos and violence, and he's sort of more animal than human, so one time when I looked out over the edge of a tall building, I remember him trying to possess me - he wanted me to jump. It was kind of terrifying at the time, but thankfully he's not nearly powerful enough to possess me.

 

Afterwords, Pinky handcuffed him to a pole in wonderland. :/ I was so scared by it that I considered trying to get rid of him, but that freaked out everyone, so I wound up giving up on the idea rather quickly. Berserker's still around, and he's been a lot more obedient since.


Pinky is not a pony. She's an imp.

Sunray is an angel-imp. Ex is humanoid. Kael is a dragon. Magnum is a dog.

People can talk themselves into having any kind of illness. Note the placebo effect, it works both ways. If you think you're sick, you will get sick. This means that a tulpa should be able to do the same to you, especially if you choose to believe that they can.

 

Your mind can hurt itself easily.

 

[stop thinking bad things like that :(]

Me and Hakks used to fight all the time, sometimes to the point of impaling each other. It was for fun, but it did give me a odd sensation where she would have hit me, a odd empty feeling, but it didn't actually hurt.

Thank you for all your answers.

I was exactly thinking of something like this. As a kid I use to get voluntary fevers just by visualizing I was sick (pretty good trick to avoid school.) And I was just thinking about the power of the brain not actually getting Psychosomatically hurt xD.

I've done the same thing myself. :>

 

The same kind of mechanism makes depression so shitty. You feel bad, think bad thoughts which make you feel even worse, lethargic and sick. It's just one big downward positive feedback spiral.

Quick side note about the placebo effect:

While it is true that you can alter your perception about whether or not you are/will get sick, feel pain, be depressed, etc. it does not have any effect on whether or not you actually are. The placebo effect will not influence the presence of a disease causing agent or a "chemical imbalance" directly. However, you may experience physical effects such as a fever since a change in perception is often indirectly linked to a bodily reaction. Take for example stress or a threatening situation. Such stimuli can result in the release of corticotropin hormone which leads eventually to the stimulation of the adrenals by ACTH and release of epinephrine which has wide ranging effects on the body. Hopefully this makes some sense.

TL;DR: While the placebo effect may influence your perception, its scope and influence is limited.

 

Concerning the thread:

Since pain is a perception, theoretically it could be linked to or influenced by a tulpa since many of the aspects of developing one include altering perception; at least that is what I understand the fundamental principle of imposition to be.


Unless you believe, you shall not understand.
