Tulpas

Postby Timefly » Thu Mar 29, 2012 4:03 pm UTC

So, the following has been popping up in various corners of the internet recently.

http://louderthanthunder.net/tulpa.html

There are detailed guides as to what Tulpas are at the top of the page on the link provided, but a basic run down is something like; creating a Tulpa is when, through the persistent act of visualization and communication with an imagined entity, your conscious mind becomes segmented, displaying multiple personalities (yours and the Tulpa's personality that you create).

I thought that odd corners of the internet are probably not the best place to discuss this so I bring it to you guys. What do you make of it?

This is somehow not an odd corner of the internet?

There exists a definition of "odd corner" such that these xkcd fora do not meet it. Whether this is the intended definition is an exercise left for the reader.

According to TimeCube guy, there should be 4 odd corners.

And four even corners? That fits if it is a cube.
