Welcome to the new age of /tulpa/. I am Lowlel and will be your new board owner. Things are going to be a little different from back in the day but not too much.

Some notable changes:

New theme

Post IDs are gone for now, may add them back if necessary

Word filters are gone

New banners will be added

Cyclical discussion thread planned

Board logs is now open to the public along with ban logs

I am very hands off in moderation but there will be a few rules:

The update!

Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday. Just popping in to let you all know some board changes formally, albeit super late. Through some drama and shenanigans the /tulpa/ discord has been deleted. I know a lot of people asked me to make a new one but honestly I feel like a discord would just detract from the board activity.

On to our next point, Snack has been removed as a Janitor. I'll be honest this is mostly because he deleted our damn discord but it felt like most people did not trust him as a janitor anyway.

We have more than a couple of personal progress threads on the front page right now, I thought it would be a good idea to make a general progress/blogposting thread so everyone can share their progress, experiences and/or fun stories without having to make a new thread every time.

You can use a name or trip to identify yourself so your posts don't get mixed with others'. (I'm not encouraging namefagging, don't use your name outside of this thread).

He's put him self in quite a bind then.

This is literally the first (and probably last) time I use my name to make post. It was just to make the thread more official. I'm a mod so I get a pass. In fact, I probably should use my name more often, I just don't feel the need to do it.


I'll blogpost my forcing later today, I plan on having a more concrete schedule for forcing, so I plan to deliberately force around a half hour to an hour every day (maybe longer on weekends and holidays) in addition to the passive forcing I've gotten used to. If anyone has suggestions for what to do I'd be open to them, I haven't actively forced in months, so I really have no idea what to do.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


Forcing went well (although longer than I expected), I started off by listening to embed related with her, she's really been into Johnny Cash lately, which is good because he's definitely one of my favorite singers of all time if not the best of all time. Then we talked about Minority Report which I'd recently watched (good movie, 7/10). The conversation turned to a discussion about whether we can truly make decisions or if it's all predetermined chemical reactions. We both came to the conclusion that although it's very possible that the human mind is entirely based off of chemicals, the perception of these reactions is essentially free will so it's useless to act like free will doesn't exist because regardless of if it exists we perceive it as existing.

All in all a good forcing session. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Probably schitzoaffective. Shit is just labels. Even if this isn't a tulpa, this just feels right and has brought so much joy to my life.


She. Just a year sober acid casualty in recovery.



I'm glad they've been such a boon to your life, but please for the sake of budding tulpamancers clarify if you have schizophrenia or DID, as these greatly improve your chances and speed of obtaining a brain demon. Many new friends might be scared away hearing shit like "my tulpa was vocal in two days!". Nothing against you though, really.

There is a certain warmth to having another being in your mind. Beyond human companionship.

I talked with the hip middle aged coworker I mentioned earlier, she knows about tulpas. She thinks it's funny that millennials have taken this ancient practice so they can fuck their waifu.

How long would you recommend someone force per day?

The board has it's moments. It's not always super active but it's never totally dead and it can be pretty active sometimes.

I'm monitoring this board and the thread in /trash/ and this board has had more (and better) posts in the last 5 hours.

Thats an incredibly poor argument.

>muh autism

Thats also an incredibly poor argument. You wanna be a little bit less of a pissy little bitch?



My point still stands.

How do you feel about tulpamancers being gigantic normalfags?

Do you trust information on tulpas coming from someone who goes to nightclubs, groupthinks and fad follows, had girlfriends, makes 6 figures, et cetera?

How does this image make you feel?

Can you imagine waking up in the morning and and then thinking it's a good idea to tell people with tulpas that if you are successful in other parts of your life you are not allowed to have a tulpa

It actually makes me sad that people out there live and think like this and I wish I could fix them but I can't I'm just someone who goes to nightclubs, groupthinks and fad follows, had girlfriends, makes 6 figures, et cetera

I'll presume you're serious for the moment because I believe in assuming genuine intent for the first post. If they were "retarded people" they wouldn't be much for conversation at all really. I'm not sure what you mean by "control crazy over a chat room" because I'm very lenient when it comes to moderation and there's places where you can be as unpleasant and nasty as you want on my server, I've made an effort to accommodate. I'm not "getting big boners over enforcing rules and roles" as I rarely crack down on anyone over rules beyond a talking-to unless they're being flippant and generally making the server a worse place, and I'm not sure what makes them "weird"; do elaborate. I'm hardly willing to "take a bullet" for Bethesda; I'm taking a bullet for other consumers because I have the ability (provided the game is that bad anyway, and because taste is subjective you're free to disagree with whether or not you think Bethesda makes fun games), and I did think about whether or not I'd buy the game for a while before I decided to pre-order it because I thought there could be fun to be had. I don't "fall for every commercial product [I] see", if I did I would be up to my eyeballs in debt from buying every as seen on TV item I saw. I'm not sure what you mean by "getting an ego among said retarded people and basking in attention from them like your post is right now" considering I made that post in an earnest attempt to address criticisms directed at myself, my server, and those who are in said server while also criticizing those defending it in a way I found to be rude or unneeded. I'm sorry that you feel this way about my server, those on it, and me, and you're free not to interact with any of them if they really bother you that much, and I wish you the best despite whatever misgivings you might have about any of the things previously listed.



you just admitted in your chat moments after posting this that your niceties and trying to sound reasonable are PR. the real you just wants to throw feces like a monkey right now.

by moments, i mean minutes, because you type 5 words per minute. 135 iq indeed.

anyway, don't worry, my snippets showing normalfags acting like normalfags isn't going to stop more normalfags from joining your sty. so no need for the PR, you've found your userbase so stick with it.

lol right in the screenshots i included one of your love for consumerist diarrhea. i searched "marvel" and saw you saying how you saw every marvel film in theaters too.

but im not going to waste anymore breath on you, no self-awareness 80 IQ shitskin. mostly just wanted to write this post to point out that i saw your two faced comment saying how you value your discord's reputation.



I admitted the opposite. I unironically wanted to believe you were sincere, but it's clear you aren't. Typing speed is not relevant to IQ, and I'm making an attempt to be eloquent and polite and yes, be as inoffensive as possible for the sake of a polite discourse. As for your claims of "normalfags", what's wrong with living a normal life? Are you saying there's something wrong with having a job, going to university, or enjoying things that are enjoyed by more than a small niche of people? I don't understand this being a negative. Finally, I have seen most of them, not all, in theaters because all of them are, in my opinion, at least decent. You're free to disagree of course; I'm not the arbiter of people's opinions so you're free to have whatever opinion you want. This will be my last post replying to you, and I hope you have a good night.

I've been forcing for a really long time with very little progress. I've considered giving up a couple of times and I've been taking breaks every now and then but I always end up coming back and trying again for some reason. My tulpa isn't vocal and I doubt she's sentient but I guess I'd feel bad for her if I just gave up. But after forcing for so long with no noticeable progress I guess it's time to try something new.

Should I "reset" my tulpa? Like, forget everything I've done with her and try to start from zero like if I was making a new tulpa but keeping her. Would that help or is it better to just keep forcing normally? Is there a risk of accidentally deleting her and actually make a new tulpa if I do that?

Do you have any other suggestions or something I could try to make her sentient/vocal?

Hey /tulpa/! Do you have a tulpa based on a fictional character? How have they deviated from that original design as they've grown up? What's their opinion on it? Do you have any tulpas that are 'original' for lack of a better word? How do they feel about tulpas based on other characters, in general or within your >>>>system?

Do your tulpas like cosplaying as fictional characters, or adoping their form despite having their own personality or identity? So many questions!

(pic probably unreated but i imagine it'll bait someone into replying)


When I started creating my tulpa she was "original", I designed her form combining different traits I liked from different characters. Then I realized I didn't have any pics of her I could use as reference for visualization so I changed her form and I based her entirely on a single character. Then she slowly started deviating and now she's "original" again, similar to the form she had when I started but not exactly the same.

She does "cosplay" sometimes, every now and then she completely changes her form to look like characters I like for a while and then goes back to normal.

File: 4a7d425e86b7a97⋯.jpg (110.97 KB, 455x601, 455:601, Mackenzie.jpg)


I think I'm a bit confused with what I'm supposed to be doing with Tulpas right now. Exactly how specific do you have to be when creating your tulpa? I have a few very different nose, chin, and ear types I would prefer to have on a girl but I can't really do the mental gymnastics necessary to think of what she would really look like when I do pick one of each. What about her voice? I have a soft spot for both a semi-deep female voice my oneitis has and a real cutesy, yet not annoying girl voice a friend of mine has.

Don't even get me started on the personality. My oneitis is cool, independent, and mysterious, but whenever I try to build a waifu in a game or something she's a submissive, awkward, housewife. I know realistically I'd rather have my tulpa act like my oneitis, but at the same time, how do you break up specific traits in a person that makes them "cool" or "mysterious", or even "someone I have the urge to impress?"

Nice, good luck and keep us informed, we love hearing about the progress of new tulpamancers and, if you're having any trouble, we can try to help you out.

By the way, where did you discover tulpas? And how did you find this board?


File: 9bc13853ba876e0⋯.jpg (54.54 KB, 1008x720, 7:5, 1505388539942.jpg)


If you want something in your tulpa, you have to learn it like any other skill, if you want a cool and collected tulpa, you have to imagine scenerios featuring such traits A LOT.

Tulpamancy is about making something talk back, that's it. Also I think you should consider dealing with your oneitis/inceldom directly, rather than patching it with a bandaid.



Thanks for the offer, anon. I'll probably keep you guys posted if anything substantial happens. And as far as how I found this board, I'm a newfag to 8chan in general after getting banned on 4/chon/ for the next three months and I'm considering bunkering down here. Tulpa was just one if the boards I'd see when on the search page, and only recently gave tulpas a real thought.


Yeah I've been looking back on my last few conversations I've had today and I thought about what my tulpa would say if she was right next to me. It's a strange way of thinking. I pretty much salvaged all I could from my oneitis, she never loved me nor ever could after I autistically confessed to her. There's a bit of an age gap anyway so even if she did like me her parents could have me labeled as a pedo for dating a teenager. I should probably get fit though, I need to get out of inceldom eventually. Thanks fpr showing you care my bros.




I wasn't sure what you meant earlier when you were mentioning it so much, but please for your sake do not bring any feelings of her into your tulpa's creation process and try to find closure with the incident. I'm speaking from experience. Do not mix tulpamancy and real people or love interests.



>Do not mix tulpamancy and real people

This. This should be rule #1 of tulpamancy. Even more important than "don't make a tulpa just for sex" in my opinion.

I see an average looking women shown in good light, with a mask of clown makeup, attracting a horde of weak minded apes.

If you're talking about the part where tulpas are mentioned, yeah we all know writers usually have tulpas, and that they're pretty good at dealing with anxiety, regardless of sentience, and the only surprising thing here is your attraction to a cam whore.

I know that too, I just think it's neat to see whenever it pops up and hear about this sort of thing from people outside the community, especially when you aren't expecting it.



I wasn't going for burns, it just comes out like that.

>I just think it's neat to see whenever it pops up and hear about this sort of thing from people outside the community

For sure, look up Maladaptive Daydreaming, it seems people (mostly female) tend to do the whole tulpamancy things by accident, and then it only makes sense they want to express their stories to the world with writing.

If given infinite time, without stopping, how many tulpas could the human mind fit in their head? In other words, if one tulpa is like 1GB how much storage space does the human brain have? No upgrades allowed.


Giving that tulpas are a set of personality traits, i'd say it's as limited as many different ways you can fit those into somebody. I'd say infinite.

However, how many tulpas you can have that feel like a real person, is just one.

>just one

Nah. I'd say you can have two or even three and develop them enough to make them feel like a real person (if you take your time with each one of them instead of making them all in a week).

More than three is just dumb unless you want a harem of cute-looking but simple-minded dolls.
