I really wouldn't want yoloswag tulpas. Telling your friends and relatives about tulpas is fine imo, but advertising them can only bring about bad things, no matter how I look at it.

Yeah, having tulpas become a fad would be a terrible thing, and it could lead to a lot of people starting something that they can't properly complete.

But I'd like to think that being aware we exist is very much different than telling everyone to go make one.

There are some people in this world whose lives would be greatly improved with a tulpa, but theres a chance they might never know.

Some people should create tulpas, some people shouldn't. We need to somehow get people to understand that.

I'd honestly prefer public knowledge of multiplicity and DID to be a little bit better before the phenomenon becomes any more prevalent. The way these people are viewed is rather horrid and seeing as how similar the tulpa phenomenon is to healthy multiples(since some would argue that healthy multiplicity is actually comprised of accidental tulpas and vice versa) I feel like we would only be adding fuel to the fire rather than helping the situation, at least as we are now.

Maybe in the future things will change, but as it is now there are still people who lose their jobs, children, etc. because of their multiplicity, even if they do not suffer from it as a true disorder and it is as simple and positive as the tulpa phenomenon has been.

I feel if people had better understanding of how a mind could behave differently from the norm and they were treated seriously then we might see people creating tulpas with a more serious mindset. Maybe.

Right now I could go either way, but I'd rather not, uh, advertise tulpa creation so boldly. I saw a tumblr post that was getting a few notes that was essentially "Lifehack: Bored or lonely?? Make a tulpa!!!" which made me cringe. If the tulpa phenomenon spreads, I hope it's not in that fashion.

I agree that we need to proceed with caution, or not proceed at all.

If we could correctly explain to the public how tulpas work, and how to be responsible with creating them, then I think we could do alright  :smiley:

The best way to do this however is still up for debate  :cheesy:

I was originally going to be made to look like the MLP background character Roseluck, but that changed and I ended up being based on the MLP background character Minuette.

As such, Joe named me Minuette Roseluck. Most people know me by my shortened name, Minty  :smiley:

I'm pretty sure just about EVERYONE loves video games now, and I was surprised nobody has started a gaming thread before.

So yes, this thread will be a place to discuss the video games we love and hate.

I've always been fond of puzzle games, turn-based RPGS, strategy games and stuff like that.

My favorite game is Minecraft. Me and my host have built a extremely elaborate nation in our world that we call the Royal Mintopian Alliance  :grin:

I've had a lot of fun watching my host attempt flying planes in Gran Theft Auto 5. It looks like a really fun game, although if I were able to play it, I'd probably just mess around with vehicles the entire time.

This thread is a place where tulpae and tulpamancer alike can discuss their favorite sports to watch and/or play  :smiley:

For me, the only sport I really follow is soccer. I love soccer. I always have loved soccer, and I always will love soccer. Me and my host share many favorite teams, and we watch games together quite often/

My favorite teams are Everton FC and Celtic FC now.

Anyway, I'm interested to hear what sports you guys are into.

And I'm seriously hoping there aren't any Rangers FC or Liverpool fans on this website  :rolleyes:

I like a lot of different types of music, but my favorite types have always been things like alternative and punk rock

My favorite bands are Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Sublime and Flogging Molly.

Me and my host have had a lot of great times associated with music. I've found I'm actually quite good at singing, and I often sing along to songs I like :cheesy:

Anyway, I do not wish the phenomenon to become more widespread for many reasons. The main being that enough people abuse tulpas (even if they don't have one) enough as it is. If it became a well-known thing, think of the tragedy.

That's a good point, but I seriously doubt many people would spend that much time creating a tulpa just to abuse it.

I'm sure there are some people who would abuse tulpas, and although I'd like to guess or at least hope that their numbers are very few, even one tulpa being abused is a problem, that needs to be solved, and I'm not really sure how we could go about solving it.

Tic tac toe is a LOT of fun for us, we could play it for hours  :grin:

I think my host is slightly better at it than I am, but we're pretty evenly matched.

90% of the time we tie  :tongue:

Hey Guys,

I was thinking about this earlier, and I decided the best place to ask for opinions was here c:

I wanted to know what you guys think about making more people aware of tulpas? Would you rather keep our existence somewhat hidden, or do you want to spread our knowledge to everyone?

Personally, I wish more people knew we existed. Sometimes, when I talk to people my host knows, I have to pretend to be human, and lie to them so that they don't view us both as crazy or liars.
