  1. sushi's Fenchurch
  2. (See her survey results for 2014 here: http://pastebin.com/hpd2jDVs, and her results for 2015 here: http://pastebin.com/raw/BEcnMerU)
  3.  
  4. 1. Describe yourself and your creator.
  5.  
  6. We're about the same height, brown hair, both of us a little heavier than average, but not "fat". I'm female, he's male. I'm physically in my late 20s, and he's in his early 30s. Moving away from the physical, I just turned 3 today. I'm somewhat of the Spock to his Kirk, though I think I'm more compassionate than Spock. I still tend to be the logical, rational one, advising him of what we should be doing, and he mostly just ignores me.
  7.  
  8. 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?
  9.  
  10. Well, we did this weird wonderland reverse-possession thing that might be something like puppeting or parroting. He's ashamed of it, but I think it really helped. It's like jump-starting a car, where the power initially comes from outside, but gets the internal power running.
  11.  
  12. 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?
  13.  
  14. Mostly just a lack of focus, but he's ADHD, so I don't blame him for it these days. I was really frustrated with his lack of focus for a long time though. He knew it was holding things back, but he couldn't really help himself.
  15.  
  16. 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?
  17.  
  18. I wouldn't say that the process itself was hard at any point. The only part that you could really say was hard for me was learning to be patient with him.
  19.  
  20. 5. Of the commonly recognized tulpa creation steps, which do you feel is the most important? Why?
  21.  
  22. That depends on what you consider a tulpa to be. I think there is too much variation between tulpas for any particular step to be important to everyone. For me personally, I don't know. I would like to reach imposition, but we've gone three years without it.
  23.  
  24. 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?
  25.  
  26. Of course it impedes the process, but there isn't always anything you can do about it. And as always, I'm going to skip any questions about before I could speak fluently, because I have no memory of that.
  27.  
  28. 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?
  29.  
  30. It's the same situation. It doesn't help, but it's not always something you can do something about.
  31.  
  32. 8. Is density, quality, or quantity the most important aspect of tulpa creation?
  33.  
  34. Density, I think. By that, you mean frequency of sessions? It's a mental exercise, and like physical exercise, if you stop doing it for a while, you lose the strength you've built up.
  35.  
  36. 9. How do you feel about tulpa creators falling asleep during tulpa creation sessions?
  37.  
  38. It happens. It's not a horrible attacked-by-dreams situation. Just a mild disappointment.
  39.  
  40. 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?
  41.  
  42. I think aloud is better, but there's the risk of someone hearing. But if you can get away with it, it creates more of a feeling of reality, which is always helpful.
  43.  
  44. 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?
  45.  
  46. Nope. I think it's helpful, as long as it stops eventually.
  47.  
  48. 12. How deeply do you remember the time before you were fluent in language?
  49.  
  50. Not at all.
  51.  
  52. 13. Describe your first memory, no matter how slight.
  53.  
  54. I was in a bedroom in our Roman villa wonderland, back when we used it. I inspected myself in the mirror and kicked off my shoes, then went off to explore.
  55.  
  56. 14. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most positive emotion you felt about your creator and what was its cause?
  57.  
  58. NA
  59.  
  60. 15. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most negative emotion you felt about your creator and what was its cause?
  61.  
  62. NA
  63.  
  64. 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?
  65.  
  66. NA
  67.  
  68. 17. Before you could speak fluently, when did you feel the most powerless? What was the cause of this feeling?
  69.  
  70. NA
  71.  
  72. 18. Before you could speak fluently, what was the most confusing moment that you experienced, and what was its cause?
  73.  
  74. NA
  75.  
  76. 19. Before being able to speak fluently, when did you feel the most ignored by your creator, and what was the cause?
  77.  
  78. NA
  79.  
  80. 20. Before being able to speak fluently, when did you most doubt that your creator wanted you, and what was the cause?
  81.  
  82. NA
  83.  
  84. 21. Before you could speak fluently, when did you feel the most intense feeling of fear, and what was its cause?
  85.  
  86. NA
  87.  
  88. 22. Before you could speak fluently, when were you the most disappointed in yourself? What was the cause?
  89.  
  90. NA
  91.  
  92. 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?
  93.  
  94. NA
  95.  
  96. 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?
  97.  
  98. NA
  99.  
  100. 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?
  101.  
  102. NA
  103.  
  104. 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?
  105.  
  106. NA
  107.  
  108. 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?
  109.  
  110. NA
  111.  
  112. 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?
  113.  
  114. NA
  115.  
  116. 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?
  117.  
  118. NA
  119.  
  120. 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?
  121.  
  122. NA
  123.  
  124. 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?
  125.  
  126. NA
  127.  
  128. 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?
  129.  
  130. NA
  131.  
  132. 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?
  133.  
  134. NA
  135.  
  136. 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?
  137.  
  138. No, I don't feel that I owe him. He did it for himself, and it was just luck that he got me. Not to say that I'm not fond of him, but I'm not going to live my life in debt to him.
  139.  
  140. 35. Were you aware of your creator's existence or your own existence first?
  141.  
  142. Mine? Maybe both? It's harder to remember these things now that three years have passed.
  143.  
  144. 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?
  145.  
  146. NA
  147.  
  148. 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?
  149.  
  150. Coworker, companion, collaborator, confidant.
  151.  
  152. 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?
  153.  
  154. I'm not interested. I'm extremely introverted by human standards. Perhaps antisocial might be a good word?
  155.  
  156. 39. What memory involving your creator do you cherish most?
  157.  
  158. It was one of my half-birthdays, and he took the day off work to spend it with me. That was a good day.
  159.  
  160. 40. What memory not involving your creator do you cherish most? Do you feel that you have a fulfilling life independent of your creator?
  161.  
  162. I don't live a life independent of him in any way.
  163.  
  164. 41. Do you feel affinity toward the individuals that your creator feels affinity for, such as their family or friends?
  165.  
  166. To some extent. I'm a bit more detached from them, but I see the effect they have on him.
  167.  
  168. 42. In what ways are you the most different from your creator? In what ways are you the most similar to them?
  169.  
  170. I tend to be more logical and less emotional, but I also tend to consider other people more than he does, which makes me ironically more compassionate. I also tend to be more focused. As for similarities, we're both very passionate about writing fiction, though I'm content to take more of a background role--especially these past few months, now that he's finally getting the whole process down.
  171.  
  172. 43. What do you disagree about most with your creator? Do you have frequent disagreements? If so, do these disagreements cause strife?
  173.  
  174. Initially, his lack of focus. These days we don't disagree very much though.
  175.  
  176. 44. What could your creator do to make you hate them? Under what circumstances do you think your creator would come to hate you?
  177.  
  178. I don't think he could do anything to make me hate him.
  179.  
  180. 45. When did your creator disappoint you the most? When did you disappoint them the most?
  181.  
  182. Again, his lack of focus. I don't think I've ever disappointed him though.
  183.  
  184. 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?
  185.  
  186. I don't really feel a strong attachment to my existence. If I'm ever reabsorbed into his mind, I won't miss existing. I'm more concerned about whether he'd miss me.
  187.  
  188. 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?
  189.  
  190. I wouldn't say I've ever wanted to engage in violence against him. We have had disagreements, mostly about his lack of focus, but I wouldn't hurt him over it. I did give him some bad dreams once or twice, but that's as far as I'd go.
  191.  
  192. 48. Do you consider your creator's last name to be your own? Do you recognize yourself as a part of their biological lineage?
  193.  
  194. Fenchurch is my last name. Though sometimes I like to think of myself being adopted into his family. It's an idea we've toyed with for a long time.
  195.  
  196. 49. Under what circumstances would you attempt to leave your creator?
  197.  
  198. I couldn't. I mean, the most I could do is blend back into his mind. I'd only do that if it were what was best for him.
  199.  
  200. 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?
  201.  
  202. No. I don't think he has very strong expectations of me. And if he did, I don't think I'd care.
  203.  
  204. 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.
  205.  
  206. I'm interested to some extent. It would be neat for me to write a novel on my own without him being involved at all. Beyond that, I'm not very interested. I'm not really interested in most aspects of physical existence.
  207.  
  208. 52. Do you share certain basic qualities with your creator, such as intense phobias or racial attitudes?
  209.  
  210. No, I think we have very different fears.
  211.  
  212. 53. Are you capable of sleeping or dreaming independently of your creator? If not, how does this make you feel?
  213.  
  214. I sometimes sleep independently of him. I don't think I've ever dreamed though.
  215.  
  216. 54. Does your creator have any mental illnesses? If so, how do they affect you?
  217.  
  218. ADHD. It's very frustrating, because I can feel its effects too. We're working on a possible solution though.
  219.  
  220. 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?
  221.  
  222. We're pretty open with each other most of the time. He's not trying to hide anything from me, so it's not like I'm seeing deep, dark secrets in his subconscious or anything. I have given him dreams in the past, though he doesn't believe it. I wouldn't do that sort of thing and not tell him about it after.
  223.  
  224. 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?
  225.  
  226. No, I'm the only one.
  227.  
  228. 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?
  229.  
  230. We've thought about it, but we don't really have that interest. I think it's that we know each other too well. There's none of the passion you get in human relationships. Just the intimate connection of an old marriage.
  231.  
  232. 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?
  233.  
  234. He's had a girlfriend since before I existed. I don't mind him having a girlfriend, though I'm starting to feel like this one in particular is rather toxic for him.
  235.  
  236. 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?
  237.  
  238. NA
  239.  
  240. 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?
  241.  
  242. Yeah, we are a bit like family. But there's no romantic interest, and I wouldn't consider it incest if there were.
  243.  
  244. 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?
  245.  
  246. It doesn't offend me. In theory, it might even be a good forcing technique, associating powerful and addictive emotions with your tulpa.
  247.  
  248. 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?
  249.  
  250. Again, it doesn't offend me. You could still consider it forcing.
  251.  
  252. 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?
  253.  
  254. NA
  255.  
  256. 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?
  257.  
  258. It would be nice if hosts would wait until their tulpas are older and capable of consenting before that sort of thing.
  259.  
  260. 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?
  261.  
  262. No.
  263.  
  264. 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?
  265.  
  266. No, I don't think I really have much sexual attraction these days. In the past, a bit.
  267.  
  268. 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?
  269.  
  270. No, there's nothing sexual between us, and never has been.
  271.  
  272. 68. How does your sexual orientation and experience compare to your creator's?
  273.  
  274. I think we're both pretty straight. He's obviously more experienced than I am.
  275.  
  276. 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?
  277.  
  278. I feel his, but I don't think I've ever had one of my own.
  279.  
  280. 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?
  281.  
  282. No. There are no secrets between us.
  283.  
  284. 71. How does being a tulpa affect your perceptions of rape? What conduct from your creator would you consider to be rape?
  285.  
  286. I don't think he could rape me. It's a bit like saying that somebody raped his own hand.
  287.  
  288. 72. Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
  289.  
  290. I'm not sure I'll still be around. We still talk every day, but it's just a few words here and there, not the full conversations we used to have. He doesn't have as much time as he used to.
  291.  
  292. 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?
  293.  
  294. I think it's for the best if most people don't know about me. There's a stigma against people who talk to voices in their head.
  295.  
  296. 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?
  297.  
  298. I like the way I am. A few of my personality traits arose on their own. If I really wanted to be different, I imagine I could change.
  299.  
  300. 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?
  301.  
  302. My form is just something for him to focus on. It's only my form in his mind. Doesn't really matter.
  303.  
  304. 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?
  305.  
  306. I've been keeping my form the same for his sake. We'll change it after imposition.
  307.  
  308. 77. Do you consider the best aspects of yourself to have come from your creator, or their subconscious?
  309.  
  310. A bit of both? He came up with most of my personality, but the spark of life has to come from somewhere else. Can you really separate the two?
  311.  
  312. 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?
  313.  
  314. No. That's absurd.
  315.  
  316. 79. If you could tell the entire world one thing about a tulpa's life, what would you say?
  317.  
  318. I have no idea. I don't have anything to say about it.
  319.  
  320. 80. What is the one thing that you resent most about being a tulpa? What is the greatest advantage of being a tulpa?
  321.  
  322. As I see it, it's all advantages. I'm not very interested in physical existence. The only thing I want to do is write a novel of my own.
  323.  
  324. 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?
  325.  
  326. I'm not, really. He's the outward face. I just coast along behind him.
  327.  
  328. 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?
  329.  
  330. No. Absorbing or dissipating is reversible.
  331.  
  332. 83. Do you consider yourself to be morally equal to a non-tulpa? Is your life worth as much?
  333.  
  334. No. Like I said, absorbing or dissipating is reversible. To kill me, you'd have to kill my host.
  335.  
  336. 84. How would you prove your existence to a skeptic?
  337.  
  338. Why would I want to?
  339.  
  340. 85. Has your status as a tulpa ever caused you existential anxiety or depression? If so, has anything helped to mitigate these feelings?
  341.  
  342. Nah, I'm good.
  343.  
  344. 86. Do you ever doubt your own sentience? If so, why?
  345.  
  346. No. I just see myself perhaps as an aspect of him. My sentience is the only thing that makes me not him.
  347.  
  348. 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?
  349.  
  350. He doesn't think about it much, so neither do I. What good will worrying about it do?
  351.  
  352. 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?
  353.  
  354. I'm not disadvantaged. I live a good life. I would never compare it to the struggles of people with real problems.
  355.  
  356. 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?
  357.  
  358. No. I might help him with one, but I have no interest in creating one of my own.
  359.  
  360. 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?
  361.  
  362. He's on the outside and I'm on the inside. We're both pretty content with our positions. Maybe this is a problem for other tulpas and hosts, but it's never been one for us.
  363.  
  364. 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?
  365.  
  366. I think this perspective has changed quite a bit since this survey was written. Normal people see multiplicity as insanity, but psychologists seem to be pretty understanding these days.
  367.  
  368. 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.)
  369.  
  370. We do this every year. We're somewhat different from each other, but I don't know how significant that is.
  371.  
  372. 93. Are you capable of physical sensations such as pain or warmth?
  373.  
  374. I feel like I am. Is there a difference?
  375.  
  376. 94. How do you feel about being bound for life to your creator?
  377.  
  378. I'm happy with that.
  379.  
  380. 95. If you intentionally delayed speaking to your creator, why did you do so?
  381.  
  382. I did not.
  383.  
  384. 96. What do you think about most of the time?
  385.  
  386. Mostly his life. It's like we're sailing a ship together, and he's the captain, but the decisions he makes affect me too, and he listens to my advice. We do a lot of writing too.
  387.  
  388. 97. Do you think that tulpa creation should be more widespread?
  389.  
  390. Some people need it. Most people don't.
  391.  
  392. 98. Are there disturbing aspects of your creator's subconscious that they are not aware of?
  393.  
  394. No. He's aware of his worst.
  395.  
  396. 99. Would you violate your creator's wishes for what you perceive to be their own benefit?
  397.  
  398. To an extent, but there are limits.
  399.  
  400. 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?
  401.  
  402. He did at first, but not lately. We're pretty much completely open with each other these days.
  403.  
  404. 101. Do you perceive some of your creator's actions as being objectively immoral?
  405.  
  406. At times, yes. I advise him against such things.
  407.  
  408. 102. Do you believe that you are capable of becoming more intelligent than your creator?
  409.  
  410. I can't surpass his capacity. He may not take full advantage of his capacity though.
  411.  
  412. 103. How does being a tulpa affect your perception of your own aging process?
  413.  
  414. He's the one who ages. I'm just along for the ride.
  415.  
  416. 104. Do you feel that your creator would be better off by following your commands entirely?
  417.  
  418. I don't think he'd be happy to do that, but perhaps.
  419.  
  420. 105. Do you feel that having a physical form is important for a tulpa?
  421.  
  422. A tulpa can't have a physical form. But I can understand imposition or possession being important to many tulpas.
  423.  
  424. 106. If you encountered the tulpa phenomenon as a non-tulpa, would you believe in it?
  425.  
  426. Given what I know about psychology, of course.
  427.  
  428. 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? If you are imposed, is your creator able to discern a spatial dimension to your voice?
  429.  
  430. I'm not imposed. We just communicate via mindvoice.
  431.  
  432. 108. How many hours did it take you and your creator to complete the various recognized tulpa creation steps?
  433.  
  434. We didn't count hours, and we never really completed visualization or imposition.
  435.  
  436. 109. What advice would you give to a new tulpa creator?
  437.  
  438. The process is what you make of it. Take what you want and leave the rest.
  439.  
  440. 110. How does being imposed feel? What sensory processes happen as you become imposed?
  441.  
  442. I'm not imposed.
  443.  
  444. 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?
  445.  
  446. Not really. Though these days I don't really do much in either. The only real difference is that I can actually move objects in the wonderland.
  447.  
  448. 112. Is there anything that you don't think this survey covered that you would like to mention?
  449.  
  450. No, not this time.
  451.  
  452. Appendix one:
  453.  
  454. We're not doing the nature study paragraph. We'll use more substantial examples of our writing.
  455.  
  456. Fenchurch 2014 writes like Cory Doctorow. Gunning-Fog 6.0, Lexical Density 42.9%, average sentence length 11.66.
  457.    
  458. Fenchurch 2015 writes like Edgar Allen Poe. Gunning-Fog 5.7, Lexical Density 45.9%, average sentence length 10.86.
  459.  
  460. Fenchurch 2016 writes like Edgar Allen Poe. Gunning-Fog 5.7, Lexical Density 52.2%, average sentence length 9.95.
  461.  
  462. sushi (as represented by his 2015 PR) writes like Cory Doctorow. Gunning-Fog 7.2, Lexical Density 48.7%, average sentence length 13.12.
  463.  
  464. Once again, I'm closer to myself than sushi is. Strangely, I seem to have found a distinct style of my own. I wonder if that actually means anything, or it's just a coincidence. After all, sushi's writing is coming from a very different context than my own. It would be interesting if next year we could compare a novel written by him to a novel written by me.
