Ask Lumi's Tulpas


Recommended Posts

Haven wanted to ask something.

Here's one I just thought up - assuming technology advanced to a stage it was possible and you could transfer your conciousness(es) into an artificial body (a robot(s) for example) would you or perhaps more importantly Reisen Flandre or Tewi wish to? Obviously as you were all.. Ehh I don't like created as it sounds clinical but ..formed to accomplish or fill certain rolls, would you still be able to fulfil those rolls? I've been pondering this a lot with recent tech advances and whatnot.

We sort of judge whether we want each picture we see to reflect them or not. Most pictures, it's just a picture of the character. But sometimes I, or one of my tulpas, see one that we really like and would like to associate with them. But the short answer would probably be yes, considering the site I browse for pictures of them is like 1/3 porn, I've had to develop a tolerance to images we don't like. Although, of the ~50,000 images of the three of them I've seen, I've seen maybe ten that were actually really nice despite being NSFW. Didn't save them, but I respect the artists for respecting the characters.

I'll say first that, just because my tulpas each have a purpose does not mean they were created solely to fulfill that purpose. It's more like.. I'm giving them chances to exist, to share happiness and life with me. But just like every human needs a purpose to lead a fulfilling life, I feel every tulpa needs a purpose to.. well, lead a fulfilling tulpa-hood. The reason I recently made a new tulpa is probably obvious by now - motivation is one of the largest limiting factors in my life right now. In fact it beats out every other one like money tenfold or more. And if that were no longer a problem, my ability to give attention to my tulpas would also be increased tenfold, so it benefits them all.

 

Okay, anyways. A couple years ago, instant yes without a doubt, I was desperate to be with Reisen in any way possible. Now.. I don't think so. Reisen certainly not - I rely on her for basic feelings of being loved, and I would never let her become something external from me. It would cause more problems than not. Flandre says her emotions' integrity would be compromised were she to be "simulated" by some kind of technology outside my mind. However if Tewi were able to take a copy of my mind and hers to an external body, I think she'd do it for the heck of it. She'd be much more productive, that's for sure. The problem then would be that her mind was no longer updating with my own, and within a couple years she could be entirely irrelevant to me, considering her purpose is to help me better use my intuition, ie access subconscious thoughts.

 

A Sylvia robot would be scary have the same problem, and she's practically like a robot now anyway. However I notice you mentioned me doing it - if I could take my tulpas with me and gain a sort of immortality through consciousness backups, sure. I feel like if I were given a hundred years of a decently functioning mind, I could do some great things. And I'm comfortable enough with my understandings of my tulpas and my "humanity" that I wouldn't regret it. As long as I retained my ability to develop mentally, 'cus I have a lot of stuff to work out still.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

Interesting. Ok then, how about this, if you could give one piece of advice to a new tulpamancer, just one, what would it be? I figure you may have a more unique answer given Reisen and co's different origins to those of us following guides and such -

There are no rules. None. We don't make rules, and neither does your brain. Don't let anyone or any thought tell you otherwise. You can do, feel, create anything. Never let anything limit you, because the only way you can be limited is if you believe you are. So don't. Believe you can do anything, and you can. Probably. You can do a hundred times more than you think you can, so although there may be limits, it's more productive not to acknowledge them.

[this is old]Hi guys. For some reason I can't access the forum (community.tulpa.info specifically) right now due to some problem on my ISP's end (thanks Comcast). So I'm going to be on the IRC until that's fixed, I guess. I can't guarantee I'll be paying attention to it 24/7, but if you message me I should notice eventually.

 

On the other hand, I'm currently using a proxy to access the site and post this. So don't rely on me being here too much. I'll probably check the forum a couple times a day still, but :ugh:. If time isn't important then just message me here. Otherwise, IRC. I'll edit this post when I'm back. (For those of you who find it ironic that I just wrote a post about not ever leaving, I'm not! So don't think that.)[/this is old]

 

Exactly 24 hours later it's working again, that's good. I was preparing to not be here for like a week..

Hey, it's the same with me. The forum works from my phone, but not from my laptop. Been like that all day.

I can connect with a proxy as well, but I don't really feel comfortable using it...

Do you like ww2 fighter planes? Because there's a whole series of them named Reisen. The A6M Zero. I like them.

No specific interest in them, but that's interesting. I've heard of a couple uses for the word/name Reisen, but not that one. Usually I just hear it as "travel" in German.
