Based on the multi-page discussion that you have going already on this topic, do you think you have found any Tulpae believers on this forum?
Hmm, i not believe so.
May I ask what you hope to accomplish by conducting this poll?
Nothing in particular, just basic statistics.
And also, how much time do you invest in interacting with real people? Not forum members or your tulpa.
With my friends?...Well, a lot of them live rather far away, so its hard to see them in person all the time, we often chat on skype.
I'm kind of finding myself feeling that you are just really lonely, and perhaps having trouble making human connections, so you have created this elaborate fantasy to occupy yourself. And then you come to an atheist forum, and rather than engaging in the topics that are important to most members here, you insist on talking about your tulpa, over and over and over again.
Indeed, i am rather lonely at times, i am very finicky with my friends, only top notch will suffice
I know the topic of tulpae is off-topic (hence this is in the off-topic section), and i will probably post more tulpa related topics, but live and let live, no?
You see, when you are interacting with real people, (even online) you are likely to have a more meaningful connection if you find an area of common interest.
Of course, but in order to know what connections you have, you must investigate
I'm kind of guessing that this is something that you are having trouble doing in your life. (And please correct me if I am wrong.)
You are indeed wrong, i know what connections i have with others, its just that there are very few to start with xD.
But it seems that you are trying to get attention in a really non-productive way on this forum.
I would say the same thing, but ehh, i'm enjoying the questions and opinions.
And you may do that in your real life interactions as well, which is perhaps the reason that you decided to create your tulpa.
Must disagree here, i do not do so with people.
And then, for some odd reason, you create a tulpa who has inexplicably different interests from your own. She likes fire and you like water. This to me, is really telling. You've created this artificial divide, and yet you are still the best of buddies.
Actually, i created Alexis with the fear of fire, ironically, she does not fear it. (I'm not bullshitting either, i can even post the personality sheet i made for her.)
Could it be that this is what you want to do with real people, in your real life? Because we all have differences, and our differences often give us interesting things to talk about. But usually, after we have already established a common set of interests.
No, i like having friends i can connect with, although if i had a friend who i could light on fire, that would be cool. (Heheh, get it?...Cool...)
You are clearly a smart, creative guy. But I have to admit, I'm kind of worried about you. If this tulpa thing is sort of a rehearsal for starting to develop strong human friendships, I suppose it is a sort of interesting exercise. But I really hope that you try to move on to the next step soon.
If there is one thing i have learnt about most people (well, modern day teenagers near my age), about 99.9% of them are assholes, there is no dismissing this.
Sadly, those .01% of actually nice people are rather hard to come by.
Of course Alexis cannot replace an actual friend, but she helps, a bit...
Is there anything other than tulpas that you are interested in talking about?
