An experiment in psychology, with some results already here. Feel free to ask questions!

==========

Before asking any question about tulpas, please visit: http://www.tulpa.info/guides.xhtml
--------------------------------------------
>A tulpa is believed to be an autonomous consciousness which also exists in a self imposed hallucinatory body, which is usually much of your choice. A tulpa is entirely sentient and in control of its opinions, feelings, movements.
>It is perceived as completely real, and you don't have to constantly focus on it to keep it around.

Futile? No, not futile. And a imaginary friend? Here, have a read of this...

The human psyche is divided into 2 big “sections”. The active consciousness, which is controlling non-autonomous actions, such as what to eat today or perceiving a TV show.
Then, we have the unconscious, which is controlling things like respiration, sleep, thirst, hunger, blinking etc. Dreams emerge from here as well.

This is the point where it gets interesting. Approximately 90% of our decisions are being made unconsciously and without our “Active and conscious” control. (Here, Freud’s papers are becoming very interesting; I will be quoting a small extract from wikipedia)


The unconscious: Its mental content cannot directly be made conscious despite of deliberate effort; to do this, it is required to use an armamentarium of certain methods such as the psychoanalytical technique or, obsolete in the Freudian psychoanalysis, hypnosis. In accordance to Freud, an adult’s unconscious is a system, which mainly consists of repressed and repelled content of consciousness. The unconscious especially contains drives resp. their psychic representations of concept (“instinct representatives”).
[…]
According to Freud, they are subject to “primal repression” but are still taking effective actions without conscious knowledge of an individual through its symbolic dialogues in dreams. Additionally it is forcing itself into everyday life, through the so called “Freudian slips”.


This is the point, where a Tulpa starts to form. We have a second consciousness since birth - the unconscious. Nonetheless, it is being biochemically suppressed by the active synapses, which leads to the formation of the psyche, personality and consciousness.

I, like most people with undamaged cognitive functions, require drugs or extreme sleep deprivation to actively hallucinate.

There's more than a dozen people who claim to have a real tulpa:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AlmHucQaUeJPdEpUQWhwVzV5U1lmeDNGcENJUHU5YXc#gid=0
That list is incomplete, there's more than 5 people missing from that, one with 2 tulpas.

As for the hallucinations, it's supposed to work like this:
1. You develop a good mental model of the body of the tulpa and its behavior.
2. You assume some personality traits and details and suggest them to it.
3. You talk to your tulpa for a long ass time (a few weeks, some 30-50 hours).
4. Eventually it talks back and you can't control whatever it says and you can't attribute the voice to yourself. This is the part that's different from making a regular imaginary friend.
5. Improve imagination with other 5 senses.
6. Since now the tulpa controls its own body, it's basically part of your active imagination, but you cannot control it very easily. If you start imagining it with your eyes open, it would eventually become a regular persistent hallucination which works by itself (as it's no longer controlled by you directly), not different at all from how your own inner voice works (that's a "hallucination" too).
7. Keep this process up for a month or two and it will go from an unstable near transparent imagination to a full blown near permanent hallucination.

This stuff takes a lot of mental effort, but it seems doable in principle. The part about the tulpas independence and own personality seems to be contested by one particular psychologist, but some others seem to have contrary opinions, so it's a bit controversial. The point being that you just self-experiment and find out for yourself, make your own theories and test them.

I believe that the mistake people make is in thinking that these are actually entities outside of your control, and therefore may unconsciously be directing them but consciously unaware of the fact. This would result in the impression of free will among the Tulpa. As it is, this seems to be controlled schizophrenia. You're going to lose control and induce mental illness by thinking that these creations are independent.

>> No.4641798

>>4641789
Pretty much everyone that has them has reported that they do a lot of interesting things that are just plain impossible for a puppet, from memory access (can retrieve a lot of lost memories, or even remember entire books in perfect detail) to reported dream experiences to them joining you in your dreams and have their own experiences.

I proposed a simple experiment to test if the tulpa is its own being: have the tulpa work in parallel with you own some problem, for example, some advanced math. You would be focusing all your attention on something specific thus having no time to work on the problem, while the tulpa does just that. If the tulpa succeeds, you can conclude that it's its own independent mental process separate from your own.

One person who was asked to performed this experiment reported some success that's just not feasible for normal humans. Failure was reported for those that parroted (regular imaginary friend).

I plan on trying this stuff for myself and experimenting, then I will know for sure.

This seems plausible in the same way that my own inner voice seems plausible : that is a hallucination after all.

Having lurked on IRC for more than a month and talked in these threads, I'm willing to give them a benefit of the doubt, especially since there's so many of them.

As for hits: more than 10, you can talk to them on IRC or in the appropriate board which they frequent.
Misses: lots of people dropped out before getting anywhere, but they spent insufficient time. You do need some 50-70 hours until a tulpa responds (changing the process can cut it down to 40). Some people have gone for longer, with meager results: tulpa talks, but isn't very interested in interacting, instead prefers dreaming/sleeping and only talks occasionally - this is what seems to count of partial failure and it's a bit more common, although it's unclear if this is a permanent state.

Except we didn't even know there was a group of people who did something similar to this a few years ago, but in a different form.

Differences seem to be: people just expect daemons to have animal form, and they let their subconscious decide the form a lot more, when it comes to tulpas, people tend to pick more random forms and try to decide on more details, even though it's possible to go full random if you want to. Other differences: daemons are mostly kept as imaginary friends, but most people with a tulpa impose (hallucinate) them, this seems to be an optional step. Likely very similar if not the same phenomena, but slight differences in the method and approach/expectations.

It's still controversial if tulpae are closer to real personalities than just subconscious projections.

They're projections of the subconscious, but they appear to be and act like separate entities. Whereas with daemons, you always think of it as being you.

How do you explain dozens of different people claiming to have succeeded with this, some having even done this years ago? This aren't just random "claims", these people have spent weeks/months talking to others about their advanced imaginary friends. What's more interesting is when someone comes on IRC and just chats there for a while for weeks, and you can see their tulpa growing and becoming what it is claimed to be. Don't like IRC? Have some blogs of people doing it right now: http://chupitulpa.tumblr.com/followed

Seems unfalsifiable either way, but I'll err on the side of accepting claimed subjective experiences when discussing such things.

The thing is, nobody that tried the process in full has failed. There are a lot of people that dropped it after 10-20 hours or so as it's too tiring, but nobody who has gone the full 100 hours has yet reported failure. There are not many people who have completed it (a dozen or more), but from those that completed it, so far there has not been a single case of reported failure.

I never had any noteworthy hallucinations in my life ( I'm >>4641807 ), yet I'm still doing this as an experiment and I'll see for myself if it's true or not. I do consider my own inner voice a "hallucination", so I don't see why this wouldn't be possible, given the sheer amount of conscious effort involved in it.

I do know it's prone to confirmation bias, but the claim is that this stuff is not likely to work as claimed unless you put in the required hours and effort.
If someone followed some experiment you set up and then decided to change the rules to suit them and then reported failure, would you not discard them as a test subject?
The facts being that of those that took the experiment until completion, pretty much all reported success (there was one supposed failure, but he only contacted someone by email and never went on IRC or the other threads to discuss how he failed).

There were a few partial failures reported, but they were not complete failures: people who claimed their tulpa interacts with them, but doesn't like to do it too often, tulpa regressing into emotional responses from being vocal and so forth, but given that these people haven't yet completed the process, it's hard to claim it's a failure: it's just their in-progress report.

I don't really think people aren't admitting failure though.

It seems that anyone that actually went past the halfway point where the tulpa starts talking to them just continue it until completion.

Most of us don't care about bad interpretations. What is worth caring is if this works or not. Making a theory to explain fact usually comes after observing said fact. A bad theory does not invalidate the fact.

While I would never actually make a tulpa due to personal reasons, I would find one fairly useful.

My primary use for such would be as a personal calculator. Any roboticist would tell you how tedious it is to program and design a robot to walk and turn, let alone jump or run. Our minds are able to execute such actions instinctively, which hints at great arithmetical - maybe even trigonometric or algebraic - ability in the subconscious. It's just a hypothesis.

As to appearance, I would have the tulpa in female form, that way I may use it/her as a model for drawfagging.

As for imaginary friends providing sex?

About a third of it is identical to making a regular imaginary friend, to the point of skipping the actual puppeting parts.
The half-way point is where the tulpa talks back, or basically auditory hallucinations similar to your own inner voice, but different and in a way that you can't identify it as being generated by your own deliberate thought process. Prior to this part, there are various other "symptoms"/hints that it's working, such as the tulpa interacting with your imaginary world, or sudden unexpected/unrelated bursts of emotion similar to bipolar disorder and a few other things described in the guides, and I suppose a bunch of headaches if you're new to visualization.
The full process is the one where one has a complete hallucination interacting with the full senses and having complete access to your memories.

>> No.4642702

>>4642701
Continued.

Being successful would probably be completing the whole thing, but the way I see it, if you do reach the half-way point, you will end up finishing the whole thing, unless for some really unexpected reason you end up murdering your tulpa (read: ignoring it for about a month, until it goes away completely, this is possible even after the process is complete), so if the tulpa does talk back, you may already count yourself successful.
> t seems to me that you are being callously dismissive by just ignoring people for "sucking at visualization"
I used to suck at visualization before starting on this. Each day I worked on it, I began sucking less and less. It's just a skill that you can learn. If you say that there are people for whom this is impossible for some biological reason, I'd like to see some evidence about that.
> and not being able to induce auditory hallucination at will which according to you would be the halfway point
I'm not yet at the halfway point myself (a week or a bit more to go, with about 2 hours per day spent on this), but there are enough people past it already, and I've talked to enough of them that makes me believe this is doable. So far my own progress has been matching up with most other reported experiences.
> that you trolled out of some poor dumbass.
Fine, so we're all going to get trolled by dozen of separate and seemingly uncoordinated trolls which report consistent, yet subtly different experiences with each other. If this doesn't work, I'll just get out of it with better visualization skills, which are already greater improved. I don't stand anything to lose here, nor do you, unless 100 hours of your time is something you just cannot afford.

>> No.4642707

>>4642693
Your tulpa is supposed to be a very good friend/companion. You would just ask it to go away.
If you really fucked up the creation process, you can just ignore it for a month and it will fade away. You can also see past it if you developed it into a hallucination, the same way that you can listen to something and think in your own head - you perceive both senses and imagination at once. It's also possible to more instantly kill the tulpa by programming a "kill switch" during the creation process (associating the body and the tulpa with some special trigger), but this isn't recommended because a tulpa is reported to act like a self-aware being with (claimed) subjective experiences, which means, that you would essentially be murdering it if it actually is conscious (I don't want to debate this now, I'm too tired right now), and it would know you have the ability to instantly kill it, so any trust you might have had initially would be ruined. If you plan on killing it, just don't start in the first place.

No, but given that more than a dozen people have followed these guides to completion and have reported very similar experiences (with some small variations, mostly depending on changes in the process), I'm willing to take their *subjective experiences* at face value. That is, I'm assuming they are not telling lies about their own memories. I'm not asking them about their religious beliefs or pet scientific theories, I'm asking them about what they think they experienced. Sure, maybe they are all liars, but this seems unlikely because, the people that make these claims have been around for a while, you could observe them go through the process gradually, you could talk to them at any time and so on. It would also be rather unusual to do this just for trolling, when it was mostly just semi-private communication between themselves about their own subjective experiences.

Even if I were to disbelieve them, the sheer amount of positive reports and the talks I've had with some of them have made me assign a reasonably high initial prior for this hypothesis being true, a high enough prior for me to think this is worth testing by myself.

So they think they are now hallucinating something, without actually having the hallucination? That sounds like the same crappy justification used in the past to say that dreams (lucid or otherwise) don't actually happen, they're just bad memories. If I want to take my own subjective experiences at face value, I have to do the same for others.
> It would be totally usual for them to experience some massive confirmation bias, though. That goes for you as well.
Possible. I'm going in this with a very agnostic outlook. When something weird happens, I don't go "this is my tulpa", instead I ask myself "what exactly was that thought that I couldn't identify as to who it belongs to?" or if I have a sudden headache, which seem to be reported by pretty much everyone so far I would go "is this a genuine effect or is this a placebo effect?", but this doesn't matter, because if this is right, at the halfway point, it wouldn't be possible to just keep saying to yourself that "it's just me", simply because it would be too much out of my control, if the claims made by those that reported successes so far are true. I'm keeping an open mind, but I'm also very careful not to get biased, although it is difficult with such subjective phenomena.

Sure, but if this process works like it's supposed to, you will end up with a persistent hallucination which acts independently as a seemingly conscious being and which you cannot doubt. That's the whole point of this. If these people are claiming that they are having these hallucinations, are you just claiming that they are only thinking they have hallucinations without having them?

A few people have reported that they can let their tulpa control their body. This is unconfirmed stuff though, none of those that wrote those guides linked here actually tried doing it. Some of the recent people that succeeded are experimenting with that now though.

The main difference between DID and a tulpa is that, DID is formed through trauma and the host may not even be aware of the alternate personality, which is never the case with a tulpa. The host and tulpa do appear to have separate, but sharable memories to some extent (reported experiences also differ here, one of the guys that wrote the FAQs claims he can't do that, but another one claims that he can, so it varies per individual, what makes it worse is that those 2 used different processes when making the tulpa).

tl;dr: Stuff is unclear and controversial. Too few people have experimented enough to see how different or similar to DID it is.

Welp, you train yourself through the whole process, you do get headaches and shit along the way, but they pass. Also during the process you get a bunch "new" feelings, like times where feelings appear to come from outside of your perception and such, like a bi-polar person would feel. The culmination of feelings and perceptions and reactions that you get from a tulpa could be classified as a number of mental illnesses, but the fact that ALL of these things happen to people with tulpae shows that they are completely separate phenomena. You can't induce bi-polarism,DID,Scizophrenia, autism, and whatever just by meditating, or else all of those yoga freaks would be crazy.

With tulpa, you're creating independent hallucinations from scratch that you're very much aware of as distinct from ordinary reality, and entirely taking place inside your own head, even when the actual visualisation reaches the point of being indistinguishable from their surroundings as unreal.

They're not hypnagogic hallucinations, since they don't relate to sleep... this is the closest phenomena I've found:

It's unclear if one can switch "places" with the tulpa, but even if that were even remotely possible (there were a handful of 3rd party people that claimed they could do this, but none of them ever stuck around enough on IRC or in other related places, so people are considering that they might have given false testimony), it wouldn't result in time lapses and memory loss, not unless you somehow could "sleep" while the tulpa was "awake".

Dissociative identity disorder (DID), popularly known as multiple personality disorder is "...is the presence of two or more distinct identities or personality states...that recurrently take control of behavior." (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV (Text Revision)). This basically means that there is a host that has another personality which will take control of the hosts behavior which results in the host experiencing memory loss while the personality is in control. This personality does not form like a tulpa, and people with this disorder usually have had server physical and sexual abuse while the they were a child. Now the exact cause for DID is debated heavily, but there are two explanations. 1) The experience of pathological levels of stress which disrupts normal functioning forces some memories, thoughts and aspects of personality from consciousness, and 2) Psychotherapy caused it (the treatment of mental disorder by psychological rather than medical means).

Sadly, research on DID which have scanned the brain inside and out have identified DID, this makes it very hard to hypothesize a biological basis for DID.... Interestingly, studies have shown differences between cerebral blood flow, changes in visual parameters and support of amnesia between the host and the personality switching.

Perhaps as technology and our understanding of the brain increase, we will be able to put a biological reason for this discorded to occur... Once the secrets to DID are unlocked, I believe that someone could find it worthwhile to follow up on the creation of Tulpas as the two seem very similar.

>"Schizophrenia is when one is unable to tell the difference between real and unreal experiences..."

Then creating Tulpas is EXACTLY like schizophrenia in this regard. You're arguing that Tulpas are something independent from their creator. This is no different from people who claim that the "voices" are telling them to do things when we all know that the those voices are coming from that person's own head. You can't touch a Tulpa, and it cannot physically interact with you. No one else but you can see or hear a Tulpa. It cannot see anything that you haven't already seen. This is why people like us have been saying that Tulpas are not real, in the sense that you actually created something. To us, this is defined as schizophrenia. Now, if you were to argue that they are more like "programs" created in your mind to perform certain tasks, then it's a much different story because you are then demonstrating an ability to separate the real from the unreal.

>> No.4644236

>>4644215
You're right there, but I feel that DID is similar to tulpas and I thought that looking at DID might give some clues to tulpas.. But the studies just can't find any subtle changes in the brains of people with DID to a normal person to lead them on any path to finding the cause.

>> No.4644249

What about programs created to emulate human personalities? We already have such functionality in our mind, we use them for rehearsing conversations with our friends or for predicting someone else's behaviour. Tulpa, to me, seem to be an extended, artificial version of that.

We often hear of writers and cartoonists say that after a certain point, characters "write themselves". What if you continued developing that thread, far past the point of necessity, and then combined it with visualisation exercises?

Does that not produce something functionally identical to the phenomena described as "tulpa"?

>> No.4644274

If you are looking for a predictable program like thoughtform, then you are speaking of servitors. They don't have a consciousness of their own and do as they please. Tulpa have a different set of emotions, personality, and opinions. They even act unpredictably and can surprise you. Calling it schizophrenia is too easy. We know that they don't really exist and we can't interact with them. Just because you can perceive a hallucination, doesn't mean that you don't know that it isn't real. That's stupid. That's like saying that people that look at kaleidescopes are crazy because they see the world different through their magic binoculars. They know that they are looking through a kaleidescope, what makes them crazy by realizing that?

There should be a way to allow schizophrenics to know the difference between reality and their hallucinations soon anyway.

Pretty much, you're on the right track, except you CAN tell the difference between the one you consciously spent three months or more building up from scratch, and the flesh-and-blood people walking around and talking to you, by virtue of their distinctive appearance (especially if you modelled their appearance on anything from animation) and their total inability to affect their local environment.

Recall at the very end of A Beautiful Mind, when he could still see his projected consciousnesses, but chose to ignore them, and knew that they were fake hallucinations of his own unintentional creation? This is that, with intent and the hope of better results in knowing from the very start. He was compelled to dangerous actions by his own paranoia, self-doubt, and many other facets of schizophrenia beyond the independent visualisation; someone of sound mental health attempting to give rise to a tulpa will not have such issues. This is, for me at least, an attempt at self-improvement by opening a proper dialogue with my subconscious mind.

I am looking for further scientific works to confirm this, and if you or anyone else on /sci/ would like to help find anything even remotely related to the topic - research papers on imaginary friends, religious visualisations or schizophrenic hallucinations - that would be greatly appreciated by myself and everyone else dabbling in this pseudoscience we'd like to see mature.

First, >>4644775. But in short:

Designing a personality from the ground up - every single individual facet - and bearing this personality in mind, focusing on it in both specific sessions in which you describe it as though to another person, and narrating to it throughout the day. Eventually, you will begin to have seemingly "alien" thoughts, which you'll gradually hear with more clarity and frequency to the point of being able to hold a conversation with this made-up personality, without having to consciously reply on their behalf. At this point, you can begin to visualise a body for them, gradually, bringing it up from something you can see clearly with your eyes closed until it becomes a stable and animated auditory and visual hallucination, with seemingly free will and independence from your own normal thoughts.

That is a tulpa and its creation process.

I am extremely skeptic but just like parallel worlds and aliens, tulpae are cool so I would be interested if there was any solid evidence.

For example, you could have two subjects: a normal one and someone with an alleged tulpa, and you display a subliminal image while recording their brain activity. The normal subject won't react apart from a subconscious trigger in their brain but the guy with a tulpa will have a considerably increased brain activity and his tulpa will let him know what the image was.

Hi /sci/, owner of tupla.info, here.

It's funny, the entire purpose for my website was a personal site for my experiment on tulpae, and it has grown so much since then (you can still read about the actual Experiment -- which I'm still doing -- on the About page).

I'm keeping a laboratory/research journal with this, too; I even numbered the pages, dating everything, etc. In the end, I'm going to be writing an academic paper on this whole thing.

Since I'm sure nobody knows more about keeping a laboratory notebook than you guys, does anyone have some advice with what I should be writing down? It's more like journal entries with lots of tables and stuff in it, at the moment.

TL;DR version of this thread please.

Anyways, I constantly misread things. So what are the implications of this? Do I have a tulpa shit inside me that's being 'wild'? I don't talk to my self but I always put up my imagination to play scenes that probably won't ever happen in life. I have a bit of ADD since I can't focus on a task sometimes (my mind always wanders when I get an idea of something) but I can strain my focus juices for a long period of time.

Making one of yourself is bad because you attatch your ego to it and having a doppelganger like that with the natural slight deviation is very off-putting.
