Sure, to hell with my neighbors, why not nuke them from orbit to make sure?
Come on, what would any non-murderous person do to their neighbors?...
Then why wasn't the answer so obvious in regards to a tulpa? Your tulpa has it's own feelings, emotions, personality, etc. Feelings, emotions, and personality that are not you
. Shouldn't that really
have been enough information for you to readily say 'in general, it would be immoral to destroy a tulpa' in the same way you'd say 'in general, it would be immoral to destroy my neighbor'.
Also, read up on parallel processing, allows 2 things to run in one package.
Alrighty...computing analogy time. Maybe we can get on the same page that way.
Let's go with your brain being the equivalent of a computer. You're rockin' an brand spankin' new Haswell i7 with all of the trimmings.
Now this computer is running a host OS of some kind. It's really nothing more than a hypervisor - it's got some capabilities to talk to some of the low-level hardware, and runs a copy of VirtualBox or VMware or whatever. Now, there is at least
1 virtual machine, running AngusOS (you
). AngusOS has a few different programs and applications running on it, like the KDE desktop, drivers for an NVidia GPU, drivers for a SoundBlaster 16 (because you're old-skool and badass), several cron jobs that process incoming data and output some type of response, etc.
The totality of software that is AngusOS is an independent entity. AngusOS will run the same way regardless of whether it is running on this hypervisor, a different hypervisor, your i7, someone else's i5 or A10-5750M, etc.
Now, as I understand it, you are claiming that a second
virtual machine running AlexisOS exists and is running in the same hypervisor that AngusOS is running. AlexisOS has it's own
set of programs...maybe it's running the Xfce desktop, using drivers for an Intel GPU, drivers for a Turtle Beach sound card (because AlexisOS is also old-skool but in a completely different way), a different set of cron jobs, etc.
The programs running in AngusOS and AlexisOS comprise feelings, emotions, and personality.
Is this analogy to tulpa valid?
