What do anonettes on CC think of Tulpas?
I'm oddly fascinated about the subject but all the opinions I've seen have been mostly male dominated. Usually of them trying to bring their waifu into some sort of reality.
Isnt it just a advance imaginary friend taken to the next level? Where you can see touch and smell them and actively engaged with them.
I had one special Tulpa I carried with me through high school. Problem about creating them is that they grow off what you emotionally project onto them, so if you hate yourself they have the capacity to just be a very literal 'forefront of your mind' abuser.
My imaginary husbando started out like a therapist, then got a whole 'real' life career,background, family life etc. to the point of making him a facebook page.
When shit started to hit the fan , my inner self hating mantras got into his core personality and he was just a representation of those things, just unavoidable.
Only way to fix it is by 'purifying' them, which is essentially a concerted imaginative effort of either containment or simply ignoring their existence until reabsorbed into the subconscious.
It really did feel like a self inflicted psuedo-schizophrenia, and will never recommend it
So he became "abusive" towards you? Like did his behavior change? Did start to criticize or judge? I'm just curious how the relationship would change and how his personality would become.
It's the same kind of pattern that a partner you put too much emotional burden on would behave. He went from sympathetic and trying to give advice (compartmentalized logical side of my brain) to then controlling (do this or that differently so you don't get hurt, don't question me) to eventually giving up when I gave up on myself. The dialogue from then on was along the lines of "why should I give a shit? You're always gonna be a miserable bitch anyway" or "can you shut the fuck up already, you're giving me a headache."
In the end it was just a bizarre dissociative personification of my own self loathing and criticism, which only ended when I went to seek professional help.
