At this point it really sounds like your argument is that a tulpa is not an imaginary friend, and then you go through great lengths to ensure that it looks as much like an imaginary friend as possible.
I have also said that a tulpa is pretty much imaginary friend 2.0.
Well, I have to say that you do not seem to. For a thing to be sentient, it has to have an independent ability to feels or be capable of feeling;it has to have the power or function of sensation or of perception by the senses; it must be conscious or percipient of something.
I guess i should have posted the definition before, but yes, i do know what sentient means.
To do this, the thing must have a nervous system and an organ capable of interpreting the signals of stimuli. Nothing that the mind alone creates can have this. It is not possible.
Tulpae are said to use your brain, eyes and ears.
I am going to honest and say that i am skeptic on just how tulpae are supposed to do so.
Which is a meaningless statement, isn't it? It is very well possible that I am 15 foot tall...
As far as i am concerned, the square to cube law, and gravity, would make it impossible.
You don't happen to be on the moon, do you?
What you are saying here in weasel words is that you honestly are convinced that tuplas are real and have their own independent life complete with a body and organs.
What nonsense, i do not think of such things.
I believe tulpae are real, yes. But how exactly? I do not know, i admit that a delusion is likely the case.
But i also admit that others have other ideas.
Another meaningless statement, and you knew when you wrote it. You are doing your level-best not to say "Tulpas are imaginary and people invent them in their heads - they cannot be sentient.", aren't you?
Technically, a tulpa is imaginary in the physical sense, so there is that.
Again though, it is claimed that tulpae use the host's brain for sentience and such.
I am waiting for you to use some "Christian logic" such as "There are many things we do not know!" "You cannot know unless you accept tulpas." etc.
Nyet, do not expect such garbage from me.
I'm going to call you out on this one: you do know.
Please, amuse me. How do you know what i do not know?
Last time i checked, physics were not real.
But you now know that it is impossible and that you "create" nothing other than a delusion, the very thing that we here oppose. There is no logic, there is no science, there is no proof, there is no evidence and there never will be, and there is no advantage.
Never stated there was an advantage, and i never stated that a tulpa is not a delusion.
Heck, i never even said that you must believe what i must believe.
I have not the faintest idea who or what 'Chrysalis' is. Tell us why you wanted him/her/it to be "real". What purpose did you think this would serve that could not be found in the real world and in reality?
Originally, she was to be a gender swapped version of my OC, but then she became chrysalis, that black and green thing licking your screen for my avatar.
I guess i was intrigued as to what she would of been like?
On base level, you haven't got one.
Exactly, i never made an argument.
Now i guess i have one, and that is good, as this thread was going stale.
You seem to have once read something about tulpas and, not realising that it is all garbage, and without any critical thought, you decided you'd have a go at making one. You thought that this would make you interesting.
Actually, i started making Alexis, knowing that the idea is unbelievable.
It was when odd things started happening when i started to wonder if tulpae are real.
You then found a site, WWGHA, and made a decision to insist on talking about tulpas in the hopes that someone would be a tulpa devotee or be impressed by your knowledge. A moment's thought would have told you that this was as like posting, "Why's the world flat then?" on a serious astronomy site.
Yes, that is totally why i made such a crazy topic on this website full of people who dislike crazy topics.
I may not be a genius, but i am not stupid. (Granted, i am rather smart for a WA Aussie...)
If you need to know, i made this topic for a personal progress report, for a discussion, and for information.
The consensus of opinion, no, all opinion, went against you. No one thought you were introducing anything interesting. Not a single person thought there could be "tulpas". and yet you continued and did not notice this. This is the beginnings of obsession and delusion.
Actually, if you are capable of reading non-biased information.
Several people here have said that tulpae are possible, but not in the "real sentient thing in your head using your brain" sense, which is not the sense i acclaim myself in.
Mr Jason for example, has said that it is very well possible that tulpae could be a result of a well tuned sub-conscience.
You have now hijacked space on this site to publicise your delusion. You would do better to be a missionary peddling these delusions at another site: one that the gullible, shallow thinkers inhabit.
Missionary? Nyet, i would not tell another person to make a tulpa. (look at my response to Junebug talking about making one)
As for hijacked space, i do honestly want a discussion here, of any kind, i do not want to simply hog up space for a progress report.
I am also amazed that you can criticise Christians/Muslims/etc. from your position. What would you say if one of them asked, "What about you creating sentient tuplas then?"
Big difference for starters.
Theists believe well and truly that "god" is real, can interact with anything, and generally made the universe.
I on the other-hand believe that it is likely that tulpae are a delusion, and generally don't do much.
One thing i like to do is ask a theist "Would you say that i have a sentient companion in my head named Alexis?", of course the response is "Of course not, such things are not possible!" then i say how that is how i feel about god...
