Luminesce May 20, 2015 Share May 20, 2015 Their forum behavior is more or less fine. But if the things people were complaining about IRC-wise were akin to that chat log, then I kind of understand where Yuki and the rest were coming from. It's annoying because there's always legitimate points behind what Mist's saying - started with the possession-as-escapism thing, continued with true-consciousness-or-just-realistic-simulation stuff. But then, implications that "most people here" claiming to have tulpas actually don't, that they're just fooling themselves. The problem is, that's a wide-reaching claim with no more basis to it than one person's personal experience. It's ignoring the scientific method and is also a bit rude. Mist seems unable to discuss these aspects of tulpamancy without passively making claims we'll find offensive or misguided, at least in spur-of-the-moment IRC if not premeditated forum posts. So I dunno. Instead of admitting that you have a problem, act on it. You still seem to be getting something out of your time here, so you're welcome to stay if you want. But try a little harder not to make claims against what others here believe - at least use some tact if you want to bring up "outsider looking in" concepts. Because while you are still an "outsider" who may have different and possibly beneficial ideas to show, you also don't know us that well yet. You might've noticed from this post that I've seen everything you've brought up before. It's great to check if your ideas are new or beneficial, but you shouldn't assume they're some sort of godsend or revelation automatically. Done well they can be thought provoking, done poorly they'll cause arguments. And since people stop listening when they argue and the whole point is to learn, it's best to avoid that. Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn. Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature. My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
