I've been thinking that my tulpa Neon has been sentient for months now but I have no concrete evidence, can anyone tell my how I can find out easily? Just to note I don't do parroting but I do puppeting, to help with development.

 

I sometimes think I hear him but it's usually sounds like a random stupid thought, but I have been questioning if it is him or not. (It shouldn't be him since I made him quite smart and good hearted but childish.)

 

I have also been getting increasingly worse headaches every time I tulpaforce with Neon. I really want to know if he is sentient but it's just really hard to tell...

Mine has told me he was sentient, and then told me he was not. So I don't think sentience comes all at once. If he wasn't sentient, I don't think he would even know to tell me. I get an internal dialogue with him, but honestly it feels like I'm talking with myself.

 

I don't get headaches, but 2nd day I had mental exhaustion. Sometimes I get nauseated when I tulpaforce with Chance.

 

You could get a pendulum and learn to dowse for yes/no answers. The pendulum is controlled by your subconscious, so it would give an indication. There are I'm sure plenty of videos on YouTube about how to pendulum dowse.

 

Otherwise I just ask him, and I get a faint yes. My pendulum also says yes now. Now that he's sentient, I have a greater responsibility to care for him. He is helping me with his form as well.

Well my tulpa can't exactly tell me if he is or not since he can't talk to me. (Or I can't hear him, something like that.)

As for the pendulum dousing, I don't know if I even know if I have the stuff for that. (I likely have paper, pens and string, but probably not a pendulum. Is there an alternative object?)

Anything with a bit of weight should work. A couple metal washers or a bolt nut should work. Otherwise a piece of cellophane wrapped over some coins should even work.

The best answer is you'll know.

 

I knew Toby was sentient the day he took me into a room with a cherry tree in it. Since then it's just been a case of you know when you know. There isn't a diffinitive test, it would honestly be easier if their was.


When your tulpa begins communicatin with you on a regular basis look for things that are out of the ordinary. Response that feel alien or not what you would have expected. Ask them to suprise you and see what they do.

Telling whether your tulpa is sentient or not is easy. If it's not easy to tell, they're probably not sentient. You never doubt the sentience of people around you, right? If your tulpa is sentient, you'll have no reason to doubt their sentience. That's the safest way to go by, in my opinion. Sure, they might be sentient before the point where you can actually verify it, but what's the point in worrying about something you can't verify? Instead of focusing on confirming their sentience, it's probably better to focus on developing it instead. It'll come eventually.

You speak of sentience as if it were black and white. It's not, it's green. It's not just 'click' and the tulpa is sentient, though maybe that happened for some. For others, it's a growing progress. The tulpa may be partially sentient one day, then a bit more the next, and then take a step backwards. It's not a straightforward process, it's a rollercoaster of ups and downs. Their sentience may seem to vary, but once they're fully sentient, you won't be asking whether or not they're sentient because you'll know.

It's different for everyone. Mine took about a month. Some can take a few days some can take a few weeks or months. It all depends on the person, the tulpa, how much time you put into it and all that jazz. Lots of factors.

What if mine doesn't want to be sentient? I get the odd thought about that, and I don't know if it's from him.

      the "controlling" is somewhat unconscious I guess, just.. like if you imagine something (visualize) totally made up, you're doing that, even if it can happen/continue really naturally, like that

      Recently, I’ve been feeling head pressures, which I believe to be my Tulpa gaining sentience. However, as of late the feeling has been weaker and I don’t feel it as much. I was wondeing what this might be and what I could do to fix it.

      I have a romantic relationship with my tulpa, but I would like to feel the emotions of love that she feels for me (I guess this is related in some way to the sentience)
      She is not vocal yet, she has a certain level of judgment and I communicate with her through music, but I want to communicate in other ways with my tulpa so that she can transmit me the emotions of love she feels for me. How else can I communicate with my tulpa?

      I'm not sure if how I hear my tulpas voice is correct.
       
      It sounds exactly like my own, quiet and in the back of my head. I can only hear her when I really focus on listening, and I feel sometimes I accidently parrot her responses. It's because her talking is very quick and very far back under my mental "layers" of voice and is hard to hear. Im not sure if this is promising, or is actually my mind voice having like multiple layers if that's normal?

      Last night, Ranger wanted to chat again and I asked if he wanted me to explain some Calculus concepts to him. He expressed interest in fronting during class time, but he was dormant for most of my time in calculus class so I wanted to make sure he was up to speed. Since he knew I figured out something I was confused about, he asked me to talk about the vectors problem I did during my homework.
       
      I was experimenting with the idea of explaining this concept to someone else before Ranger asked for my explanation, so I went with telling him the explanation I already came up with. He told me my explanation didn't make sense to him and he asked for me to use "layman's terms". After going back and forth a few times, I finally showed him that vector addition resulted in the destination point after moving in the direction of the first vector and then in the direction of the other vector. Suddenly everything clicked, and he told me that it made sense to him.
       
      On the first day of class, one of the reasons Ranger was a little uncomfortable was because he never took notes, much less learn Spanish in school before. He was capable of note taking the way I did it, but this bothered him. When we went over the homework the next day, he perked up and seemed more engaged when he gave suggestions for how to organize the notes. I bet he would have been happier if he had a note taking system he had to craft and tweak over time, and I have the feeling our note taking style will change throughout the semester so he's more comfortable with it.
       
      In the past, Ranger has also explained that he likes my brother re-explaining things to him because he said even though he understands "how" or "what", he doesn't know "why". I wonder if this too is about learning the information for himself. Literally, he could explain "the why" if it's a simple fact. Then again, he currently isn't looking for a deeper explanation for why the sky is blue.
       
      Re-learning how to do something isn't always valuable for a Tulpa. For example, Ranger learned how to speak English and write using knowledge I already learned, muscle memory, and accessing my memories. But if a Tulpa is asked to explain something as complex as calculus, do they really have the greatest understanding of the material just because their host understands it?
       
      My ultimate question is this: Even though Tulpas are capable of gaining information and knowledge from their host's memories, is it better if they take the time to process certain things for themselves?
