>>26097907 >mental disorder Incorrect. People who have tulpas, barring other actual disorders, exhibit no chemical differences from those who do not, and are in fact aware that their tulpa is not part of reality. It's a willful choice to see things that are not there to others, but it is not a "disorder" any more than liking mlp is. If you must compare it to something, a willful delusion is more accurate.
>>26097881 A tulpa is basically an imaginary friend that you create via meditation. This concept started in Tibetan Buddhism, however modern tulpas are slightly different from the ones a Tibetan monk would make.
They are (if anonymous posts on the internet are to be believed) usually self-aware to some degree, and act independently from you.

>>26098146 One type of schizophrenia does that, and it is a SYMPTOM, not an all-inclusive definition, of schizophrenia. There are none of the chemical differences that come with schizophrenia, DiD, or any other mental disorder with like symptoms. It is an example of mind over matter, nothing more. Now, would I recommend a schizophrenic to make a tulpa? Not without their meds, no.
>>26098237 This isn't some special snowflake bullshit of only you being the chosen one to see shit. You're deluding yourself into something that isn't anything more than a figment of your imagination you're letting run amok. Nobody else will hear it screaming. Nobody else will have sleepless nights from it yelling in pain if you 'fuck up the procedure' or whatever it is.
>>26098256 This is somewhat true, somewhat not. You always have ultimate say over what your tulpa does and does not do. As the host, it is your job to make sure your tulpa is mentally sound from the ground up, and any problems they end up with are usually because, on some level, you wanted them to be that way. A semblance of autonomy is, however, the most-sought goal of most tulpafriends. However, no tulpa can make you do something you don't want to do.
>>26098267 Why would they? Tulpas have no effect on anything relevant to one's physical health.. There is absolutely no reason to divulge that information. If you're so weak-willed that you can't keep yourself from verbally acknowledging your tulpa in public, or in front of your doctor, then the fault lies in your choice not to control yourself, and you deserve to be treated like a lunatic. And contrary to popular belief, doctors don't just immediately say "lol u hear things that aren't there u are schizo here meds". There is a lot of testing done to confirm it. Just like how doctors no longer immediately suggest that someone with multiple personalities begin merging therapy, or whatever it's called (I am blanking on the name at this moment)
>>26098357 And? People saying dumb shit on the internet is pretty commonplace. Either the hosts had underlying problems that made them want that, or they freaked out during the visualization process when their imagination did something demented, and assumed that was permanently part of their tulpa because they imagined it, meaning they were probably ill-informed on the subject in the first place. A well-known example of this was the oguigi blog. The host assumed that everything he saw was real and out of his hands, and so he ended up in a state of beyond fucked up. The moral of the story is get your facts right and really think before you go down this path. It requires a lot of dedication, and i daresay a decent understanding of yourself, but in the end, you won't find anyone on the planet that understands you as well as your tulpa, and the bond you end up with is definitely special.
>>26098354 I agree with this wholeheartedly. Although I feel it has roots in psychology than anything paranormal, tulpas are definitely a spiritual thing, if one defines spirituality as the search for self enlightenment. Fun fact, the concept of tulpas can loosely be traced to an old Buddhist tradition (though the end goal was vastly different for practitioners of that particular exercise, of course).
