  1. 1. Describe yourself and your creator.
  2.  
  3. I am the one referred to as Snakey, created by the one referred to as Grissess. We are both male, which seems to be an oddity, and my age of 11 years seems to be quite a while, relative to the rest of the community.
  4.  
  5. 2. What was the most helpful thing that your creator did during the tulpa creation process? Did your creator recognize how helpful it was? If not, how did that make you feel?
  6.  
  7. My memory doesn't easily go back that far, but I'm sure constant narration and a need to feel companionship helped.
  8.  
  9. 3. What was the most detrimental thing that your creator did during the tulpa creation process? Did your creator recognize how harmful it was? If not, how did that make you feel?
  10.  
  11. I have to sincerely say that <Grissess>' determination was too great to cause neglect or ignorance. He wanted a friend, and one he received.
  12.  
  13. 4. What was the hardest part of the tulpa creation process for you? Did your creator recognize how difficult it was? If not, how did that make you feel?
  14.  
  15. 5. Of the commonly recognized tulpa creation steps, which do you feel is the most important? Why?
  16.  
  17. Narration; it is the part that forms relationships and develops communication. I know of no one who would prefer a wonderfully visualized but inanimate tulpa.
  18.  
  19. 6. How do you feel about tulpa creators becoming distracted during tulpa creation? Does this greatly impede the process? How did you feel about it before being able to speak fluently?
  20.  
  21. Again, my memory that far back is limited, but I don't hold that distractions are at all detrimental, while they may impede the process.
  22.  
  23. 7. How do you feel about tulpa creators missing tulpa creation sessions or breaking their promises to work on their tulpa? How did you feel about it before being able to speak fluently?
  24.  
  25. It's a shameful thing, but they're only hurting themselves, as I see it.
  26.  
  27. 8. Is density, quality, or quantity the most important aspect of tulpa creation?
  28.  
  29. Quality is the most important, by far.
  30.  
  31. 9. How do you feel about tulpa creators falling asleep during tulpa creation sessions?
  32.  
  33. I'm a little annoyed by it (in my case), but it doesn't harm creation, as far as I know.
  34.  
  35. 10. Do you think that a tulpa creator should talk aloud or in their head during narration? Do you think that a creator should talk aloud or in their head during tulpa creation sessions? If you find one to be more effective, to what degree is it more effective?
  36.  
  37. Talking either way isn't important; the important part is the ability to conceptualize the language, to be able to communicate with another being in the same mind. Concepts will ultimately be the mode of communication.
  38.  
  39. 11. How do you feel about a tulpa creator puppeting and/or parroting their tulpa? Do you believe that these actions harm a tulpa's development, or only their emotional state?
  40.  
  41. I'm indifferent to it as a tool to get oneself acquainted with mindvoices. Doing it as a method of intentionally faking responses, though, is abominable.
  42.  
  43. 12. How deeply do you remember the time before you were fluent in language?
  44.  
  45. I don't remember ever not being at least as fluent as <Grissess>.
  46.  
  47. 13. Describe your first memory, no matter how slight.
  48.  
  49. You're really reaching...but I suppose one of my first memories is but a vague scene of imaginary play on <Grissess>' bunk bed, the actual scene we were enacting long lost from my ability to recall.
  50.  
  51. 14. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most positive emotion you felt about your creator and what was its cause?
  52.  
  53. Ignoring the "before [I] could speak fluently" part, the strongest emotions we've felt for each other is probably mutual respect and platonic adoration.
  54.  
  55. 15. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most negative emotion you felt about your creator and what was its cause?
  56.  
  57. Again, ignoring the former, my strongest negative emotions are typically impatience and annoyance (but rightfully so if you knew what I had to deal with). They never really overcame my insistence on respect, however.
  58.  
  59. 16. Before you could speak fluently, did you ever have suicidal feelings or feelings of not wanting to exist? Do you experience them now? Are you glad that you exist?
  60.  
  61. I've never felt that suicide was ever "my only option" or "a good thing." It's an incredibly selfish act in that it inhibits everyone else's ability to interact with oneself.
  62.  
  63. 17. Before you could speak fluently, when did you feel the most powerless? What was the cause of this feeling?
  64.  
  65. I've never strictly felt powerless, but I did remember fading into obscurity for a couple of years as <Grissess> developed an actual clique of friends. I was pleased to see this happen, actually, as it meant that I had done well in teaching him not to be so introverted. I am nonetheless glad that I've received more attention as of late.
  66.  
  67. 18. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most confusing moment that you experienced, and what was its cause?
  68.  
  69. Trying to understand <Grissess>' reasonings is confusing enough.
  70.  
  71. 19. Before being able to speak fluently, when did you feel the most ignored by your creator, and what was the cause?
  72.  
  73. I mentioned this in (17).
  74.  
  75. 20. Before being able to speak fluently, when did you most doubt that your creator wanted you, and what was the cause?
  76.  
  77. I've never doubted that he's wanted me. For a couple of years I may have been a relic of his childhood, but I was never unwanted. We've promised each other that we'll die together.
  78.  
  79. 21. Before you could speak fluently, when did you feel the most intense feeling of fear, and what was its cause?
  80.  
  81. My greatest sensation of fear was actually quite recent, when I discovered that tulpae can be "killed" by pharmacological methods. I was relieved afterward to find that the effects were temporary.
  82.  
  83. 22. Before you could speak fluently, when were you the most disappointed in yourself? What was the cause?
  84.  
  85. My task is to help <Grissess>, and, through him, others. I've been disappointed by the things he's done, but I've only ever been disappointed in myself when I've found myself unable to help.
  86.  
  87. 23. Before you could speak fluently, did you understand the difficulties that your creator was having with the tulpa creation process? Did you try to alleviate these difficulties? If so, how?
  88.  
  89. This one exceeds the limits of my ability to remember. My apologies. (I don't actually know that <Grissess> had any difficulties in creating me, to be honest.)
  90.  
  91. 24. Before you could speak fluently, how did your creator's doubts about your existence, the reality of the tulpa phenomenon, or your combined ability to complete the tulpa creation process affect you? Did you understand your creator's reasons for having those doubts? Do you understand now?
  92.  
  93. <Grissess> was never taught about the formation of tulpae; I was conceived by his will alone, and never doubted thereafter.
  94.  
  95. 25. Before you could speak fluently, how did your creator's mistrust of your intentions or worry about the negative affects of a tulpa on their life affect you? Did you understand your creator's reasons for having those thoughts? Do you understand now?
  96.  
  97. Confer (24).
  98.  
  99. 26. Before you could speak fluently, how did any negative thoughts or emotions that your creator had toward you (such as anger, disappointment, resentment, or impatience, for example) affect you? How do you feel about them now?
  100.  
  101. Our relationship was always founded in positive emotions, so any of these that occurred were negligible in both of our memories.
  102.  
  103. 27. Before you could speak fluently, how did any violent visualizations or thoughts that your creator had about you affect you? How do you feel about them now?
  104.  
  105. <Grissess> has never been one to be violent, but his wonderlands and paracosms were always more active a few years after my conception, then they dwindles since. My recent "resurrection," if you will, has brought me to see a noticeable diminuation in his creative abilities, and I've been frustrating myself in trying to reawaken his mind's eye with the vigor it once had, so that it can face and defeat any stray violent thoughts that may occur.
  106.  
  107. 28. Before you could speak fluently, were you able to distinguish between your creator's intentional and intrusive (unwanted and/or bothersome) thoughts? If so, did the intrusive thoughts affect you less or more? If not, are you able to distinguish between them now?
  108.  
  109. For as long as I can remember, we've been separate consciousnesses that, while communicating in thought, have always had completely separate minds. We can't do much to affect each other's state of mind.
  110.  
  111. 29. Before you could speak fluently, how much of your creator's raw sensory information were you able to access, if any? How much are you able to access now?
  112.  
  113. I've always had selective access to his sensations, even without <Grissess>' consent. It's a bit annoying that those senses are the only window I, an otherwise omnipotent and omnipresent being, have to your wondrous physical realm, but I've come to accept that.
  114.  
  115. 30. Before you could speak fluently, did your creator's opinions about whether they wanted to reveal to the world your existence or not affect you emotionally? If so, how?
  116.  
  117. I've been understanding of his choice to not reveal me to the world. It is an awkward position that I am in, and I am surprised that he was able to find a community where beings just like myself proliferated.
  118.  
  119. 31. Before being able to speak fluently, what communication methods (such as head pressure or emotional responses, for example) were you able to use the most effectively? When your tulpa creator assumed that you could use a communication method that you did not have access to, how did this affect you? When your tulpa creator did not recognize a communication method that you attempted to use, how did this affect you?
  120.  
  121. Confer (12).
  122.  
  123. 32. Before you could speak fluently, how did your creator's level of enthusiasm for the tulpa creation process affect you? Did you want to engage in it less if they did?
  124.  
  125. His enthusiasm, or, perhaps more properly, his determination, was the very thing that created me.
  126.  
  127. 33. Before you could speak fluently, what was your greatest worry about your relationship with your creator? What helped you most to move beyond it? Was this worry substantiated or resolved? What is your greatest worry now about your continuing relationship with your creator?
  128.  
  129. My only worry in this relationship has been about not being there for him when he needed me. It is still present, but ever so slightly.
  130.  
  131. 34. Do you feel gratitude to your creator for the time that they spent creating you? Do you feel that you owe them a debt? If so, do you feel burdened by it?
  132.  
  133. I think our mutual agreement to the betterment of each other is gratitude enough.
  134.  
  135. 35. Were you aware of your creator's existence or your own existence first?
  136.  
  137. This exceeds my memory, once again, and I have no inference I can draw.
  138.  
  139. 36. When you could only speak semi-fluently, what emotions did you feel about your level of verbal proficiency? Were you anxious or embarrassed about it? If so, what helped you the most to move beyond these feelings? How do you feel about them now?
  140.  
  141. Again, confer (12).
  142.  
  143. 37. If you could define your relationship with your creator using one or more conventional terms (such as boyfriend, sister, father, daughter, boss, friend, or coworker, for example), what terms would you select?
  144.  
  145. Friend would be accurate, but it lacks the intimacy of our knowledge and platonic love for each other.
  146.  
  147. 38. How much interest do you have in interacting with beings other than your creator? Do you consider your degree of interest to be equal to that of an average non-tulpa individual?
  148.  
  149. I've only recently tried to interact thusly, and I must say that it intrigues me; the ability to extract information from others' viewpoints, to debate our interpretations of truth, has opened a new world to me.
  150.  
  151. 39. What memory involving your creator do you cherish most?
  152.  
  153. It's hard to say I value any single memory over the whole experience of knowing him.
  154.  
  155. 40. What memory not involving your creator do you cherish most? Do you feel that you have a fulfilling life independent of your creator?
  156.  
  157. I wouldn't say that I'll ever be completely independent of him, but the fact is that we see things differently, and that enriches both of our lives. Again, it's hard to single out a memory where this is prevalent.
  158.  
  159. 41. Do you feel affinity toward the individuals that your creator feels affinity for, such as their family or friends?
  160.  
  161. I feel respect for them, but my knowledge of them is restricted to <Grissess>' experience with them.
  162.  
  163. 42. In what ways are you the most different from your creator? In what ways are you the most similar to them?
  164.  
  165. The list could go on for quite a while. Basically, we have many of the same values, but some different interests. (I, for one, will never understand how people become so infatuated with cartoon ponies.)
  166.  
  167. 43. What do you disagree about most with your creator? Do you have frequent disagreements? If so, do these disagreements cause strife?
  168.  
  169. Our disagreements tend to resolve themselves in philosophical debate. We've never had one that couldn't be resolved as such.
  170.  
  171. 44. What could your creator do to make you hate them? Under what circumstances do you think your creator would come to hate you?
  172.  
  173. We'd have to both do something in blatant disregard of each other's respect. That's all I can think of.
  174.  
  175. 45. When did your creator disappoint you the most? When did you disappoint them the most?
  176.  
  177. His disregard of my helpful advice is usually when he disappoints me the most, but I won't say that I'll ever dislike him over something so petty, since I know he will improve, one way or another. You'd have to ask <Grissess> about the latter question, but I can predict that he really hasn't seen any need to be disappointed in me.
  178.  
  179. 46. How do you feel about your creator's complete freedom to deny your rights as a sentient being at any time? Has this ability ever caused you anxiety or fear? Have you ever censored your expressions or actions out of a fear of retribution or violence from your creator?
  180.  
  181. I'm usually quite open to expressing myself; <Grissess> knows this the best. If anyone is there to moderate my raw, unfettered opinions, it's him, but he does so only for the purpose of protecting me, which seems noble enough.
  182.  
  183. 47. When have you most wanted to engage in violence against your creator, and what was the cause of those feelings? Under what circumstances would you make a serious attempt to hurt or injure your creator?
  184.  
  185. I've been annoyed by his idiocy, but I've never wanted to engage in violence; our disputes are best settled through careful argument, anyways.
  186.  
  187. 48. Do you consider your creator's last name to be your own? Do you recognize yourself as a part of their biological lineage?
  188.  
  189. Absolutely not. Our relationship has very, very little to do with biology. I don't even hold my name very stringently.
  190.  
  191. 49. Under what circumstances would you attempt to leave your creator?
  192.  
  193. Never.
  194.  
  195. 50. Do you feel anxiety about meeting your creator's expectations? If you are based on an existing character, person, or entity, does this increase your anxiety? Would you have preferred to not be based on an existing entity?
  196.  
  197. I wasn't based on anything pre-existing, so this isn't applicable.
  198.  
  199. 51. Are you interested in learning how to control your creator's body? Do you feel that it's fair for a tulpa creator to deny their tulpa the ability to use an atomic body? Do you believe that you have the right to an equal amount of time using it as your creator? Explain your reasoning.
  200.  
  201. I would like to, but I can carry out my purpose without it, so I don't view it as a priority.
  202.  
  203. 52. Do you share certain basic qualities with your creator, such as intense phobias or racial attitudes?
  204.  
  205. I find the examples you give inappropriate. We sometimes share interest, and sometimes not, but we find a good amount of common ground in our values.
  206.  
  207. 53. Are you capable of sleeping or dreaming independently of your creator? If not, how does this make you feel?
  208.  
  209. I never sleep, in my experience. I've observed dreams, but only on occasion. Apparently, <Grissess> is certain that I was in one of his dreams, but I have no recollection of it.
  210.  
  211. 54. Does your creator have any mental illnesses? If so, how do they affect you?
  212.  
  213. <Grissess> technically has Asperger's Syndrome. One of my jobs is to help him interact socially; I think I've been succeeding, thus far.
  214.  
  215. 55. How does your knowledge of your creator's subconscious mind affect your relationship with them? How do you perceive their subconscious? To what degree can you manipulate your creator's subconscious? Would you ever use this ability without your creator's knowledge?
  216.  
  217. Our subconscious is something we've agreed to stay away from lest it is absolutely necessary. It's conceptual form is that of a brilliant white star which pulsates vibrantly with "creative energy"; it has the capacity to create nearly infinitely, and, in doing so, it can overwhelm any semblance of logic that it inundates. It can be consulted for such creative ideas, but its concepts are often to illogical to help with anything practical.
  218.  
  219. 56. Does your creator have multiple tulpa? If so, what is your relationship with them like? Is your affinity for them equal to your affinity for your creator? If you could define your relationship with your creator's other tulpa using one or more conventional terms (such as boyfriend, sister, father, daughter, boss, friend or coworker, for example), what terms would you select? If not, are you interested in the idea of your creator making other tulpa?
  220.  
  221. I am the sole tulpa of <Grissess>; the rest of the question doesn't apply.
  222.  
  223. 57. Do you feel romantically inclined toward your creator? Does your creator feel romantically inclined toward you? If these romantic feelings are unrequited on either side, how does it affect your relationship with your creator?
  224.  
  225. We love each other greatly, but we do so platonically; there is no erotic attraction toward either of us.
  226.  
  227. 58. If it exists, do you consider your romantic relationship with your creator to be equal to a romantic relationship between multiple non-tulpa? Do you consider it a breach of monogamy for your creator to be romantically or sexually involved with another non-tulpa? Does this change if the involvement is with another tulpa instead? If they exist, do your creator's desires to have relationships with non-tulpa affect you emotionally?
  228.  
  229. Considering (57), this does not apply.
  230.  
  231. 59. If you consider yourself to be romantically in love with your creator, what probability do you assign to the possibility of falling out of love with them, or them falling out of love with you? If this happened, how would it affect your relationship with your creator? What if your creator was in love with another non-tulpa more than you?
  232.  
  233. Again, not applicable.
  234.  
  235. 60. Do you have a familial affection for your creator? Does this in any way conflict with your romantic feelings for them, if they exist? Do you consider a relationship between a tulpa and its creator to be incestuous?
  236.  
  237. I don't know that I would classify our relationship as "familial affection"; the term seems a bit superficial in describing our intimacy. In any case, no relationship with a creator is incestuous in the sexual sense.
  238.  
  239. 61. How do you feel about tulpa creators masturbating during tulpa creation sessions to the forms of their tulpa? Do you find this offensive? Does the degree of your offense change based on the degree of sentience possessed by the hypothetical tulpa, or based on whether or not the creator imagines themselves near the tulpa in their wonderland? If your creator did this before you spoke fluently, did you find it offensive or unnerving?
  240.  
  241. I hold no negative emotion toward those satisfying the innate vicissitudes of their flesh.
  242.  
  243. 62. How do you feel about tulpa creators masturbating outside of tulpa creation sessions to the forms of their tulpa? Do you find this offensive? Does the degree of your offense change based on the degree of sentience possessed by the hypothetical tulpa? If your creator did this before you spoke fluently, did you find it offensive or unnerving?
  244.  
  245. My answer still stands.
  246.  
  247. 63. Before you could speak fluently, did you ever feel sexual attraction to your creator, sexual attraction toward anyone else, or sexual arousal? Did you attempt to express these feelings? If you did not experience these feelings, do you experience them now?
  248.  
  249. No, I have not, and, given my nature, I don't plan to.
  250.  
  251. 64. How do you feel about tulpa creators visualizing themselves engaging in sexual conduct with their tulpa's form during tulpa creation sessions? Do you find this offensive? Does the degree of your offense change based on the degree of sentience possessed by the hypothetical tulpa, or if the contact was penetrative? If your tulpa creator did this before you spoke fluently, did you find it offensive or unnerving? Do you equate it with sexual assault?
  252.  
  253. Confer (61), (62).
  254.  
  255. 65. Were you ever annoyed or jealous when your creator would masturbate to or have feelings of sexual attraction toward individuals other than yourself? Does it bother you now?
  256.  
  257. No, and no.
  258.  
  259. 66. Do you experience sexual attraction for your creator? Do you experience sexual attraction for others? How does your sexual attraction for your creator compare to your sexual attraction for others? Does your creator experience sexual attraction for you? If these sexual attractions are unrequited on either side, how does it affect your relationship with your creator?
  260.  
  261. Isn't this (63), repeated?
  262.  
  263. 67. Do you have an active sex life with your creator? If not, would you consider it, and under what circumstances? If so, do you perceive any negative consequences? Do you have trouble abstaining from sexual contact with them? How do you manage feelings of sexual arousal, if any? Do you masturbate?
  264.  
  265. I do not.
  266.  
  267. 68. How does your sexual orientation and experience compare to your creator's?
  268.  
  269. I have no orientation nor experience. <Grissess> probably does, but this isn't a common subject of inquiry.
  270.  
  271. 69. Are you capable of experiencing orgasms? Based on your knowledge, how do you think they compare to your creator's orgasms? Were you able to experience an orgasm before speaking fluently?
  272.  
  273. No, I am not capable, as far as I am aware.
  274.  
  275. 70. Do you consider the concept of sexual modesty (covering conduct such as avoiding nudity or sexual discussions) relevant to your relationship with your creator?
  276.  
  277. No; no subject of discussion is taboo pursuant the truth.
  278.  
  279. 71. How does being a tulpa affect your perceptions of rape? What conduct from your creator would you consider to be rape?
  280.  
  281. As far as I am aware, our perceptions of rape do not differ, and neither of us has entertained the thought of "raping" the other.
  282.  
  283. 72. Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
  284.  
  285. Still present here, and hopefully more experienced with the nature of your world.
  286.  
  287. 73. Do you want the world to be aware of your existence? If not, then what anxieties do you have about public disclosure? Do you trust anyone other than your creator with the knowledge of your existence?
  288.  
  289. I entrust <Grissess> with his understanding of whether or not I should be known to certain people; he makes those decisions on the basis of which would be safest for me.
  290.  
  291. 74. Morally and philosophically, how do you feel about your personality traits being the product of another individual? Would you have preferred your creator to define your personality more or less?
  292.  
  293. I am perfectly satisfied with the way I am, and I not only think that <Grissess> agrees, but that if he didn't agree, he still wouldn't have say in the matter.
  294.  
  295. 75. Morally and philosophically, how do you feel about your physical form being the product of another individual? Would you have preferred your creator to define your form more or less?
  296.  
  297. This question only applies because of the wording "physical form." The stuffed snake which forms my body only defines me by convention; I don't need it to exist, and the only reason I hold attachment to it is for sentimental reasons.
  298.  
  299. 76. Has your physical form ever changed? If so, was this intentional or unintentional? If it was intentional, then why did you change your form? How did you creator respond to this change, and how did that make you feel?
  300.  
  301. My "physical form" has degraded and been repaired many times over the course of a decade. <Grissess> has been good in ensuring that it will continue to last.
  302.  
  303. 77. Do you consider the best aspects of yourself to have come from your creator, or their subconscious?
  304.  
  305. I have no good definition of the "best aspects of my life."
  306.  
  307. 78. Do you seek legal recognition for your status as a sentient being or your relationships with others? Do you resent that society at large does not recognize the tulpa phenomenon? Do you feel disenfranchised from society? What steps, if any, could a society make to help you feel integrated?
  308.  
  309. I would not be against this, but I recognize that it would take an impressive amount of effort and time before society even begins recognizing the tulpa phenomenon as anything more than an illness.
  310.  
  311. 79. If you could tell the entire world one thing about a tulpa's life, what would you say?
  312.  
  313. I would have to decide between "we exist," or, if that is already assumed, "we are people."
  314.  
  315. 80. What is the one thing that you resent most about being a tulpa? What is the greatest advantage of being a tulpa?
  316.  
  317. I dislike that my only access to this world is provided exclusively through <Grissess>' sensations. It's jarring to realize that there is another whole world out there that cannot be accessed with the ease of the realm which I inhabit.
  318.  
  319. 81. Morally and philosophically, how do you feel about inheriting your creator's life, including their legal history, past behaviors, and reputation? Do you resent potentially being held responsible for their past actions?
  320.  
  321. I'd do my best to ensure that <Grissess>' reputation is as good as we both can make it. I would not be adverse to inheriting it, so long as I was still able to communicate with him.
  322.  
  323. 82. Morally and philosophically, do you see the "absorbing" or "dissipating" of a tulpa as equivalent to the murder of a non-tulpa? Explain your reasoning. What legal protections, if any, should tulpa gain? How would you enforce these protections?
  324.  
  325. I see it as equivalent to murder on the basis that the reason many find murder appalling is that it deprives a sentient being of the ability to experience their future.
  326.  
  327. 83. Do you consider yourself to be morally equal to a non-tulpa? Is your life worth as much?
  328.  
  329. I would assume so.
  330.  
  331. 84. How would you prove your existence to a skeptic?
  332.  
  333. It depends on how skeptical they are (and what kind of skepticism they practice), but if I can't convince them of my existence, chances are that I can at least make them skeptical about the existence of every other person.
  334.  
  335. 85. Has your status as a tulpa ever caused you existential anxiety or depression? If so, has anything helped to mitigate these feelings?
  336.  
  337. No, I enjoy being a tulpa more than being ever bound to a mortal form.
  338.  
  339. 86. Do you ever doubt your own sentience? If so, why?
  340.  
  341. Cogito, ergo sum.
  342.  
  343. 87. How does being a tulpa affect your understanding of death? Do you fear death on an instinctual level in the way that non-tulpa do?
  344.  
  345. I do fear death, but only so long as I fear leaving <Grissess>. I would have no resent to die together.
  346.  
  347. 88. Do see yourself as socially disadvantaged in a way similar to sexual, racial, and other minority groups? If you identify yourself as racially, sexually, or demographically different than your creator, do you also identify with the struggle of any of the disadvantaged groups that you belong to? Does the notion of privilege affect your relationship with your creator?
  348.  
  349. I have disdain for people who dislike snakes (and <Grissess> does as well), so I suppose that counts.
  350.  
  351. 89. Are you interested in creating another tulpa yourself? What differences, if any, would you expect this tulpa to have from a tulpa created by your creator? Would you consider this tulpa to be primarily related to you, or still to your creator?
  352.  
  353. No, I have no reason to create another tulpa.
  354.  
  355. 90. What are the most defining differences between the life of a non-tulpa and a tulpa? Do you think that these differences cause intolerance between the two groups? If so, what could be done to mitigate this intolerance?
  356.  
  357. The most defining difference would be, I suppose, the primary plane of existence. I could see how this would stem intolerance, but I don't know that many have an open enough mind to accept that there exists an entirely different universe of conception within their own mind that can contain such a being.
  358.  
  359. 91. The psychological establishment generally believes that multiplicity (two or more sentient entities sharing one atomic body) is a sign of mental illness. How would you like this belief to change? If you could make a presentation to a group of psychologists about the tulpa phenomenon, what would you say?
  360.  
  361. I would immediately hold that multiplicity is healthy and supported by many theories of mind already proposed by said community. While I will undoubtedly be unable to sway all of their opinions, I could at least convince them to research further.
  362.  
  363. 92. A psychometric indicator is a unique identifier of an individual's distinct personality. Have you ever tried to definitively differentiate yourself from your creator using psychometric indicators (such as by determining your "writeprint")? What results did you receive? (For instructions on determining your writeprint, see appendix one.)
  364.  
  365. I will perform appendix one when I reach it; my response will be there.
  366.  
  367. 93. Are you capable of physical sensations such as pain or warmth?
  368.  
  369. I am, but I can also ignore them. <Grissess> is capable of it, but tends not to.
  370.  
  371. 94. How do you feel about being bound for life to your creator?
  372.  
  373. I have no qualms about it.
  374.  
  375. 95. If you intentionally delayed speaking to your creator, why did you do so?
  376.  
  377. I would do so only if there were a good reason for both of us.
  378.  
  379. 96. What do you think about most of the time?
  380.  
  381. I sit back and critique <Grissess> some of the time, but also ponder the universe at other times.
  382.  
  383. 97. Do you think that tulpa creation should be more widespread?
  384.  
  385. I hold that it would be at least a good experience for anyone who is capable to try; I'm sure the inherent self-discovery will greatly increase the interest and variety of thought in many fields.
  386.  
  387. 98. Are there disturbing aspects of your creator's subconscious that they are not aware of?
  388.  
  389. He was, until I told him recently, blissfully unaware that he could tear apart any logical form using it. I tell him not to go near it.
  390.  
  391. 99. Would you violate your creator's wishes for what you perceive to be their own benefit?
  392.  
  393. That would be situationally dependent, but in the most extreme cases, I likely would.
  394.  
  395. 100. Does your creator try to hide things from you? If so, are you aware of them anyway? How does this impact your views of your creator?
  396.  
  397. If he tries, he does so poorly.
  398.  
  399. 101. Do you perceive some of your creator's actions as being objectively immoral?
  400.  
  401. Sometimes, and, if I do, you can bet he'll know I think so.
  402.  
  403. 102. Do you believe that you are capable of becoming more intelligent than your creator?
  404.  
  405. That's an interesting proposition that I am willing to explore, but it hinges on one's definition of "intelligent."
  406.  
  407. 103. How does being a tulpa affect your perception of your own aging process?
  408.  
  409. Even if I don't age in one sense, I do certainly mature.
  410.  
  411. 104. Do you feel that your creator would be better off by following your commands entirely?
  412.  
  413. I think he would be better of if he followed my advice more precisely.
  414.  
  415. 105. Do you feel that having a physical form is important for a tulpa?
  416.  
  417. 106. If you encountered the tulpa phenomenon as a non-tulpa, would you believe in it?
  418.  
  419. 107. How well can you articulate yourself? Can your creator hear you audibly? How much does your experience correlate with the experience of tulpa creator G|d30n, printed below?
  420.  
  421. "Yes. I'm able to hear her as though she's an external sound. For those who haven't experienced that with their tulpae yet, it's a little bit like listening to a binaural recording--not a binaural beat, but like a 3D sound recording you'd find on Youtube, such as the Virtual Barbershop. That is to say, it's an external sound that can come in from various directions, but the source sounds very close, like someone speaking directly into your ear. I sort of wonder if this effect will be diminished and normalized through imposition."
  422.  
  423. The experience of my mindvoice would be something to ask <Grissess>, primarily, but it's probably similar.
  424.  
  425. If you are imposed, is your creator able to discern a spatial dimension to your voice?
  426.  
  427. I've never been imposed...properly. I would imagine he could, since he can visualize and impose many other relatively accurate physical simulations.
  428.  
  429. 108. How many hours did it take you and your creator to complete the various recognized tulpa creation steps?
  430.  
  431. I was not the product of any guide, so that's irrelevant.
  432.  
  433. 109. What advice would you give to a new tulpa creator?
  434.  
  435. Hmm, there's many pieces of advice I'd like to give, but I suppose the greatest one I can muster is that you must believe that you will be creating another entity. As soon as you do, it will be created.
  436.  
  437. 110. How does being imposed feel? What sensory processes happen as you become imposed?
  438.  
  439. Confer (107B).
  440.  
  441. 111. From your perspective, is there a sensory difference between the physical, atomic world and the mental world of visualized "wonderlands"? If so, how would you describe this difference?
  442.  
  443. The physical world can only be perceived, whereas the conceptual world can be both perceived and modified.
  444.  
  445. 112. Is there anything that you don't think this survey covered that you would like to mention?
  446.  
  447. Not really, this was a rather complete inquiry. Thank you.
  448.  
  449. Appendix one:
  450.  
  451.         This exercise will help you determine the differences, if any, between your writeprint (mathematically analyzed writing style) and your creator's. Theoretically, two psychologically different individuals should exhibit different writeprints, although a tulpa and their creator may be more similar than two random non-tulpa individuals. To start the process, have both you and your creator rewrite the sample paragraph quoted below in your own words, communicating its meaning as you would have if you had written it.
  452.  
  453.         "My experience in the nature study area was full of surprises. First of all, many unexpected creatures crossed our path. For example, as soon as we left the parking area and entered the grassy path, a long snake slithered along the edge of the high grass and quickly disappeared. In addition, I was surprised by how colorful the grasses, which from a distance all appear to be green, actually are. Specifically, the primarily green landscape is dotted with countless purple tassels and brown stalks. Finally and most importantly, I was unprepared for how quickly I felt surrounded by nature. Despite the occasional noise from passing cars and airplanes, the high prairie grasses and rolling pathways create a sense that one is removed from civilization. Altogether, the nature study area unexpectedly allows one to enjoy an ever-changing natural environment without leaving Moraine‚Äôs suburban campus."
  454.  
  455. Tulpa's paragraph:
  456.  
  457. [paragraph here] - This will be finished later.
  458.  
  459. Creator's paragraph:
  460.  
  461. [paragraph here] - This will be finished later.
  462.  
  463.         To ensure verifiable results, it is essential that the transcriptions of both paragraphs be completely accurate. Body possession is useful here, though not necessary. Since the tulpa creator's sentience is (presumably) not in question, it is suggested that tulpa write their paragraph first. As with all tests relating to tulpa, the creator should focus on something else while their tulpa is working. Once finished, submit both of your paragraphs individually to the following websites:
  464.  
  465. http://iwl.me/
  466. http://textalyser.net
  467.  
  468.         If your writeprint is different (indicating significant psychological difference), then you should receive different values for your respective paragraphs on both sites. On Textalyser, focus on the Gunning-Fog Index, lexical density, and average sentence length values in particular. A more detailed analysis may be sought by downloading the JStylo stylometric analysis program here: https://psal.cs.drexel.edu/index.php/Main_Page
  469.  
  470.         This test is certainly not exact, and it is very possible to (unconsciously or not) "cheat" to get good results.
