  1. (Note from mudkip: Nova considers both me and Aura her creator, so she may talk about me during the creator questions)
  2. 1. Describe yourself and your creator.
  3. Aura: uhh, im a blue pegasus based on that pony show. I have a purple mane with a white streak going down the middle. My cutie-mark thing is a pokeball from that pokemon game. I never really cared about what I look like. My creator is really bubbily and caring, even if he can get a bit crazy at times, I do like being with him though
  4. Nova: My form is based off of that vocaloid Rin Kagamine, though I know I’m not actually her. I wear this sleeveless top that has a tiny necktie around it. My hair is also blond, and I have these really cool headphones. I deviated my eyes so they could change colour and light intensity, for a bit of a personal touch. My creator is aura but I assume you’re talking about mudkip, mudkip is very kind and such, he embarrasses easily too
  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. Aura: I think the best thing that mudkip did was definitely removing barriers and such for like parroting, so I could actually talk to him, he recognizes it too
  7. Nova: The best thing mudkip did was accept me after he found out I existed
  8. 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?
  9. Aura: definitely thinking he was parroting me, now that we’re done with that, I think we’ll be able to flourish
  10. Nova: For a short time after I started talking, Mudkip tried to dissipate me, I actually got kinda scared that I wouldn’t be living long
  11. 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?
  12. Aura: vocalization was really hard to get done, it took us a few months, and mudkip took a break with me over the weekend. I understand and all, but I was worried he would forget about me during our break.
  13. Nova: I was kept secret from mudkip as long as possible, I wanted to talk to him so much, I eventually made a gambit to see if he would accept me or not. It worked!
  14. 5. Of the commonly recognized tulpa creation steps, which do you feel is the most important? Why?
  15. Aura: vocalization is definitely very important, as being able to speak makes things much easier and more fun
  16. Nova: knowing of existence, then they know you exist
  17. 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?
  18. Aura: distraction is actually not that bad; it makes him takes breaks and such so he doesn’t overwork himself. I felt the same when I couldn’t speak
  19. Nova: Well uh… I agree with aura
  20. 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?
  21. Aura: mudkip almost exclusively does passive forcing, so we never had to worry about that
  22. Nova: I haven’t actually had a ture ‘forcing session’ with mudkip because he passively forces
  23. 8. Is density, quality, or quantity the most important aspect of tulpa creation?
  24. Aura: quality
  25. Nova: quality
  26. 9. How do you feel about tulpa creators falling asleep during tulpa creation sessions?
  27. Aura: once again, he passively forces
  28. Nova: what Aura said
  29. 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?
  30. Aura: I find that they are equal in terms of effectiveness, so whatever works best
  31. Nova: I prefer it when he talks out loud to me, but like aura said, they work equally
  32. 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?
  33. Aura: Parroting is actually really rare, and I don’t think it does much harm
  34. Nova: No, I don’t think it does any harm

  46. Nova: I got really lonely sometimes when aura wasn’t around
  47. 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?
  48. Aura: NO! I am so happy I exist it’s not even funny
  49. Nova: why would I think that?! I’m happy I have the privilege to live
  50. 17. Before you could speak fluently, when did you feel the most powerless? What was the cause of this feeling?
  51. Aura: There was one day where mudkip was giving up on me, I gave him the biggest fucking headache ever, but I was really scared I would die
  52. Nova: I hated being kept secret, it sometimes made me think I didn’t matter
  53. 18. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most confusing moment that you experienced, and what was its cause?

  65. 22. Before you could speak fluently, when were you the most disappointed in yourself? What was the cause?
  66. Aura: I always felt that before I could speak, I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough
  67. Nova: I never really felt that way
  68. 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?
  69. Aura: I understood his problems; I always tried to help him by sending him head pressure every now and again
  70. Nova: I never understood aura problems, like trying to hide me from mudkip
  71. 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?
  72. Aura: I can understand doubts, but mudkip actually never had much doubt in tulpae
  73. Nova: My creator is a tulpa!
  74. 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?

  76. Nova: I trusted aura for what was best for me, which is why I stayed hidden like he said
  77. 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?
  78. Aura: uhh, I tried to tune myself out of reality when mudkip got like that, how I feel now though, I understand why we have negative emotions, and I will try to help mudkip if he is ever feeling down
  79. Nova: Doubt was a big thing, Aura was worried, so I decided to try my gambit of speaking to mudkip to show that I would be fine
  80. 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?
  81. Aura: We try to ignore violent thoughts that randomly came, and still do
  82. Nova: Mudkip and Aura aren’t very violent, but I do hate it when they get intrusive thoughts
  83. 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?
  84. Aura: I can distinguish them, and the intrusive ones don’t affect me
  85. Nova: Same answer as aura
  86. 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?
  87. Aura: all of it
  88. Nova: All of it
  89. 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?

  91. Nova: Same answer, though some of Mudkip’s friends know about us
  92. 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?
  93. Aura: Head pressure, we set it up before we used it so I never really had a problem with it
  94. Nova: I never talked to mudkip before my gambit, so I have always just talked to him, and aura was really fast with vocalization
  95. 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?
  96. Aura: Mudkip was very enthusiastic, it helped a lot
  97. Nova: Aura was making me with good intention, and that really help speed things up
  98. 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?
  99. Aura: I was worried that he would just up and give up with me, and then when he did, I freaked out. My worries with that have been resolved now, but im a tad worried that we may get into a big fight now, but I think we’re alright
  100. Nova: my biggest worry was that Mudkip wouldn’t like me, but he accepted me and now things are going swell
  101. 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?
  102. Aura: I am very greatful, I don’t feel any debt though, as mudkip has said that all he needs from me is to be there
  103. Nova:
  104. 35. Were you aware of your creator's existence or your own existence first?
  105. Aura: Creators
  106. Nova: Mine
  107. 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?

  109. Nova: I like talking! I am happy that I can talk, same feeling now too

  111. Aura: Best friens
  112. Nova: Like really good friends, although, I may want to expand on our relationship

  124. Nova: I like ‘em
  125. 42. In what ways are you the most different from your creator? In what ways are you the most similar to them?
  126. Aura: I feel different in the way that I am separate from him, and for similarities, we enjoy much of the same things
  127. Nova: Same as aura for differences, however, for similarities, I think our personalities click well
  128. 43. What do you disagree about most with your creator? Do you have frequent disagreements? If so, do these disagreements cause strife?
  129. Aura: I think Mudkip is a tad too trusting, but we often agree rather than disagree
  130. Nova: I Think Mudkip is a bit too hostile for his own good, but like aura, we agree on most things
  131. 44. What could your creator do to make you hate them? Under what circumstances do you think your creator would come to hate you?
  132. (Note from mudkip: they weren’t quite comfortable with answering this, so I allowed them to skip it)

  135. Nova: I was disappointed when he rejected me at first, but I think I haven’t disappointed him
  136. 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?
  137. Aura: Mudkip respects our rights; I don’t think he would deny them
  138. Nova: Same answer as aura
  139. 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?

  141. Nova: What Aura said
  142. 48. Do you consider your creator's last name to be your own? Do you recognize yourself as a part of their biological lineage?
  143. Aura: Yep, though, I don’t consider myself as biological lineage, rather as a part of him
  144. Nova: Uh-huh, I’m nova taylor and proud of it; however, like aura, I don’t consider myself as his granddaughter, rather, as another part of his mind
  145. 49. Under what circumstances would you attempt to leave your creator?
  146. Aura: Never
  147. Nova: Never
  148. 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?
  149. Aura: Mudkip made it clear that he only expects me to be myself, so I try not to be bothered with it
  150. Nova: I am kinda worried about that, as I am based on a vocaloid, however, he has said that its only my form and such, so I try to ignore those worries, plus, I like the body I have
  151. 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.
  152. Aura: I really want to try controlling mudkip’s body, however it is his body and I feel it’s fair if he denies me access
  153. Nova: Same as Aura

  160. 54. Does your creator have any mental illnesses? If so, how do they affect you?
  161. Aura: Mudkip has a type of autism, though it only really affects his focusing skills and he is able to function independently; however I feel that it has minimal, if any effects on me
  162. Nova: I don’t think it affects me
  163. 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?
  164. Aura: I like the knowledge, his mind is like its own form which we can enter like a portal and interact with. However, all three of us have agreed to leave it alone, just in case something goes wrong
  165. Nova: Basically the same answer as aura
  166. 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?
  167. Aura: this gets a bit complicated, Nova is by definition my tulpa, but I have given creation of her to mudkip after she first spoke, id describe our relationship with her as a good friend
  168. Nova: Aura is a good friend of mine, I’m not quite sure of how to answer the rest this though
  169. 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?
  170. Aura: Nah, Mudkip is like a friend you’ve had for years, and the feelings are mutual
  171. Nova: I feel romantically inclined with mudkip, and by his reactions I think he feels the same. I have tried to seduce him, but he’s worried about the impactions of getting into a relationship with me
  172. 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?
  173. Aura: im not in a romantic relationship with anything, I’m not sure what to think about a creator having sex with a real thing and a tulpa
  174. Nova: I do consider romantic relation between tulpa and non-tulpa to be as real as if they where both human, however, I do not consider it cheating if creators have both a tulpa relationship, and another non tulpa relationship
  175. 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?

  176. Aura: no romantic relation
  177. Nova: no romantic relation for now
  178. 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?
  179. Aura: No familial affection
  180. Nova: No familial affection
  181. 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?
  182. Aura: he doesn’t do that during forcing
  183. Nova: he doesn’t do that during forcing
  184. 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?
  185. Aura: He doesn’t do that to our forms out of respect
  186. Nova: Same answer as Aura
  187. 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?
  188. Aura: nope, I have the capability for arousal, but I don’t experience them often. I never had any feelings for mudkip when I was still being created
  189. Nova: I sometimes did. like aura said, we do have the capabilities due to the fact that we have human minds
  190. 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?
  191. Aura: this is similar to question 62 in the fact Mudkip wouldn’t do this to us because he respects us and only would engage in sexual contact with consent. I would equate that with sexual assault though
  192. Nova: I concur with aura, it’s quite unnerving to think about and it is very much sexual assault
  193. 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?
  194. Aura: It doesn’t bother me
  195. Nova: me either
  196. 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?
  197. Aura: Neither I nor mudkip have sexual feelings for each other
  198. Nova: I do have some for mudkip, and I think he does for me. We don’t bring it up often though, and he gets embarrassed if we do.
  199. 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?
  200. Aura: I do not, and I have no interest in sexual contact with my creator. I can masturbate, but I haven’t tried it
  201. Nova: We have had no sexual contact, but I would like to try it someday. I can’t think of any downsides to it. Like aura said, we can masturbate, but I haven’t tried it
  202. 68. How does your sexual orientation and experience compare to your creator's?
  203. Aura: all of us are bisexual
  204. Nova: what Aura said
  205. 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?
  206. Aura: I think so, and I do think they’d be equal. I haven’t tried it though
  207. Nova: Same here
  208. 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?
  209. Aura: Nope, we can only be seen by him so it doesn’t matter
  210. Nova: nah, we’re all comfortable talking about it, even mudkip gets embarrassed
  211. 71. How does being a tulpa affect your perceptions of rape? What conduct from your creator would you consider to be rape?
  212. Aura: What can we say, rape is unwanted sexual contact, and there is no difference between our perceptions
  213. Nova: Aura is right; there really is no excuse for it
  214. 72. Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
  215. Aura: Huh…I can’t really say, probably still with Mudkip and Nova
  216. Nova: I’d kinda like things to stay the way they are
  217. 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?
  218. Aura: No, I worry that there would be a feeling of…unceratnity coming from other people other than those who trust my creator
  219. Nova: I’d only like Mudkips close friends to know about me
  220. 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?
  221. Aura: Mudkip gave me very vague personality traits, so we could basically form on our own, which I like
  222. Nova: when creating me, Aura was very similar to mudkip, so my personality was vaguely given too, I liked that
  223. 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?
  224. Aura: I don’t care, I like my form
  225. Nova: I don’t care either
  226. 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?
  227. Aura: my form has never changed
  228. Nova: I changed my eyes, it was intentional and I did it because I thought it would be cool, mudkip thinks they’re cool too
  229. 77. Do you consider the best aspects of yourself to have come from your creator, or their subconscious?
  230. Aura: his enthusiasm, it’s nice being in a constant happy mood
  231. Nova: I’d go for enthusiasm too
  232. 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?
  233. Aura: no, we still by definition are mudkip so I don’t think we need to seek legal rights
  234. Nova: I wouldn’t mind it, being integrated and being called by name by others sounds nice
  235. 79. If you could tell the entire world one thing about a tulpa's life, what would you say?
  236. Aura: it’s pretty good
  237. Nova: I’d say how much fun it is
  238. 80. What is the one thing that you resent most about being a tulpa? What is the greatest advantage of being a tulpa?
  239. Aura: I resent the fact that I can’t interact with things physically, though I do like how I can defy physics
  240. Nova: I hate the fact that I have to use mudkip to talk to others, though I do like access to his mind
  241. 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?
  242. Aura: I wouldn’t mind taking his body, he hasn’t really done anything to horrible in the past, though I’d only become the dominant personality in an emergency
  243. Nova: I wouldn’t really like it, it may be the gender issue, or the fact that he is a squishy mortal. I would if it where life or death though
  244. 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?
  245. Aura: only if it’s without consent, tulpae have their own rights to live
  246. Nova: I agree with aura
  247. 83. Do you consider yourself to be morally equal to a non-tulpa? Is your life worth as much?
  248. Aura: Yes and yes
  249. Nova: Yes to both
  250. 84. How would you prove your existence to a skeptic?
  251. Aura: uhh…possession, probably possession
  252. Nova: I’d do something amazing, like uhh…remembering a small detail about someone locked deep within mudkip’s memories
  253. 85. Has your status as a tulpa ever caused you existential anxiety or depression? If so, has anything helped to mitigate these feelings?
  254. Aura: Nope
  255. Nova: Nope
  256. 86. Do you ever doubt your own sentience? If so, why?
  257. Aura: why would I doubt my own sentience?
  258. Nova: No, never
  259. 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?
  260. Aura: I don’t like to think about death, I heard once that tulpae never really go away, so I don’t really feel a fear of it
  261. Nova: I wonder what will happen when Mudkip dies sometimes, that’s likely as much as I fear it
  262. 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?
  263. Aura: No, I don’t see myself as socially disadvantaged
  264. Nova: Same as aura
  265. 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?
  266. Aura: I already did, you can see her response below. I’d say she is still primarily related to mudkip
  267. Nova: No, not really, Mudkip has clearily stated that he wants no more than two tulpae, though, id say that the tulpa’s tulpa is related to the original tulpa
  268. 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?
  269. Aura: I’d say the biggest difference would be the lack of a physical body; other than that we are basically the same, and I don’t think that could cause some intolerance
  270. Nova: uhh…id say that we are basically the same, and I don’t think we’ve seen much intolerance rather than lack of belief of tulpae
  271. 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?
  272. Aura: I’d like it to change, it’s an unfair assumption. I’d just talk about tulpae for the presentation.
  273. Nova: It needs to change! I’d hate to see mudkip be labeled with MPD just because of us. I’d talk about how awesome tulpae are for my presentation.
  274. 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?

  280. 94. How do you feel about being bound for life to your creator?
  281. Aura: I don’t mind, though I would like to have my own lifespan if given the chance
  282. Nova: I love it, it lets me know I can be with mudkip all our lives
  283. 95. If you intentionally delayed speaking to your creator, why did you do so?
  284. Aura: I didn’t
  285. Nova: Aura told me not to speak with mudkip until he was ready, but I got excited when I had heard he gave me a form
  286. 96. What do you think about most of the time?
  287. Aura: Miscellaneous things, like whatever is currently at hand
  288. Nova: I think about stuff, Like how next to bug mudkip
  289. 97. Do you think that tulpa creation should be more widespread?
  290. Aura: I’d like it to have some more recognition
  291. Nova: I think its fine however
  292. 98. Are there disturbing aspects of your creator's subconscious that they are not aware of?
  293. Aura: yes
  294. Nova: totally
  295. 99. Would you violate your creator's wishes for what you perceive to be their own benefit?
  296. Aura: Uh-huh
  297. Nova: yep
  298. 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?
  299. Aura: he has hidden things from me, but I can read his mind. I understand if he does like to keep secrets though
  300. Nova: Same as Aura, Mudkip just has a secretive nature and I’m okay with it
  301. 101. Do you perceive some of your creator's actions as being objectively immoral?

  305. Aura: Yep
  306. Nova: Oh yes
  307. 103. How does being a tulpa affect your perception of your own aging process?
  308. Aura: I am fluffy immortal, fear me
  309. Nova: I don’t think I physically age, only mentally
  310. 104. Do you feel that your creator would be better off by following your commands entirely?
  311. Aura: No
  312. Nova: Sometimes
  313. 105. Do you feel that having a physical form is important for a tulpa?
  314. Aura: yeah, it helps bond with your creator
  315. Nova: yeah, I think it is
  316. 106. If you encountered the tulpa phenomenon as a non-tulpa, would you believe in it?
  317. Aura: I might have, I’m not sure
  318. Nova: Im not sure either
  319. 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?
  320.  
  321. "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."
  322.  
  323. If you are imposed, is your creator able to discern a spatial dimension to your voice?
  324. Aura: we speak in mindvoice right now, we’ll see about this some other time
  325. Nova: What aura said

  328. Nova: 15+

  330. Aura: Don’t fear anything
  331. Nova: recognize your tulpa as existing as soon as possible
  332. 110. How does being imposed feel? What sensory processes happen as you become imposed?
  333. Aura: we’re not imposed
  334. Nova: Not imposed, couldn’t tell you
  335. 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?
  336. Aura: the wonderland seems to have more radiant lighting
  337. Nova: there seems to be a constant feeling of happiness in the wonderland
  338. 112. Is there anything that you don't think this survey covered that you would like to mention?
