Scepticism vs. Faith

Featured · Tulpamancy

Are tulpas based primarily on faith? A few weeks ago I was called out by one of the fellow redditors who stated that there are absolutely scientific methods to create a tulpa, following the strict scientific method. That sounded odd. I was under an impression that all the popular tulpa guides get you into a mindset where you’re not only open to believe whatever; you are actively suspending your disbelief too. My hypothesis was that tulpas require at least some amount of faith to make the whole thing work.

Tulpa Census 2016

Featured · Tulpamancy

Is this extremely late? I'd think there's still something salvageable. We ran a yearly tulpa census very late in 2016. We wanted to focus more on tulpas this time, while collecting useful statistics on hosts as well. I hope you will find our insights useful. I’d like to thank Meten for organisational and management help. This census couldn’t be done without you. Also, huge thanks to Alsa, and to everyone on #redditulpas IRC for their support and ideas. Lots of thanks to the beta team. You all did tremendous job to make sure the census ran this smooth. Thanks to everyone vouching for thier support and asking for the data. We took a note from the gaming industry and switched to "when it's done" model; and this is the most done it can be now, anyways.

Forcing: Modern Practice vs Psychology

Featured · Tulpamancy

Active and passive forcing -- which one is better? Which one will help you to create a tulpa faster? Is it possible to create tulpa only by passive forcing? In this post I will discuss the mind theory behind the forcing, explain how it's similar and different to the Buddhist techniques and give practical advice. When tulpamancers are asked about forcing, they usually say that active forcing is when you actively hang out with your tulpa, in the wonderland or otherwise; while passive forcing is when you keep thinking of your tulpa when you're busy with something else[^cf1]. Furthermore, active forcing is often visuals-oriented -- described as a process of sitting down, closing your eyes and imagining the form of your tulpa, their voice or their interactions.
