Confusion

79 views

I see a lot of terms around this place, and others, and they kind of confuse me. I don't know what most stuff means, like tulpa, soulbond, etc. but I'm a little too afraid to ask. Usually I would just ask Xayah about stuff, but she's not here. She's the smart one! I'm so lost without her. I wonder when she'll be back... At least I have my host to keep me hopeful until she returns!

Well, to be honest, I don't know what any of them mean besides fictive, which is what I am.

Oh, I see! Which ones are you most curious about? Also, we have a library article on terms as well! ^-^

Oh, that's pretty helpful! That answers a few questions I had on its own. However, what exactly does tulpa mean?

Its basically when you make a headmate. They're formed of your own thoughts via breaking off a part of your own conscious,

Glad you got your answers!!

I can understand this confusion very well, it was the same for me when I joined. Plus there are sometimes overlaps or very fine differences between terms, or even sometimes people would understand terms differently which doesn't make things easier. Still I recommend to use the site's search function and read discussions about the terms, that usually works. Also as Pearl said, many basic terms are explained in our library, especially here and here.

As far as I understand from previous posts, a tulpa would be an entity that exists within your mind and is intentionally created by you, but having its own self awareness, and control over its form, personality and doing. It seems creation of a tulpa can take very long (years). Unlike an imaginary friend it would act on its own accord, without you imagining that action, but typically not take control over your body (like a system member would). You'd be able to see the tulpa with your "mind's eye", eventually interacting with the physical reality around you. But nobody else can see the tulpa and there is no actual physical interaction; it's a mental construct which is very real to the creator.
