As I walk on my path to understanding spirituality and meaning of Buddhism I stumble upon more and more proof that modern tulpamancy is completely orthogonal; although trying to use similar practices. Like two edges on the blade; buddhism mind clearing techniques like meditation are used to cloud your mind and push you further away from reality.
Today I consider the imposition practice; basically the hallucinatory perception of your tulpa; be it vision; touch or smell. Imposition is praised as one of the most ultimate and complex skills in tulpamancy; giving you great benefit of actually feeling your tulpa. But ultimately it’s something that comes from within the mind; not the physical world. Tulpa doesn’t exist in the physical world and tulpamancers “lie” to themselves to make their lives more comfortable. To live in the dreams that they find more pleasing then the real life itself.
Still; it’s a useful practice if applied properly. Tulpamancy’s imposition can ultimately achieve the same goal as lucid dreaming. As you are lucid and mindful in your dreams you realise that the real life isn’t much different. The hallucinations allow you to see that even more clearly. See that; and discard it; becoming more attuned to reality and more wise. As wisdom is seeing the true nature of things; and tulpae don’t belong there.
I must note that it only applies to multiple consciousness in the tulpamancy context; the case where tulpamancers voluntarily or involuntarily get new headmates that didn’t exist in the mind before.
