Research on Creating Tulpas



Christopher Laursen and companion.

Hi everyone.  My name is Christopher, and I’m writing an essay about creating tulpas.

My essay is about how creating tulpas affects the lives of the people who create them. In this practice, individuals imaginatively create or spontaneously encounter beings who become companions.

In this essay, I will also be putting the concept of the tulpa into historical, religious, and psychological perspectives.

The essay will appear in a book about digital media, beliefs, and practices.

This is part of my ongoing research on how extraordinary experiences impact people’s lives – things that might be called spiritual, mystical, paranormal, supernatural, imaginative, or psychological.  These experiences can be for the better, or there may be negative effects.  Either way, I would value hearing from you if you practice or have created or hosted tulpas, what some have referred to as “tulpamancy.”

I have a questionnaire available, and am seeking input before March 15th, 2017.

You don’t need to use your real name to answer the questions.  I ask for your e-mail.  I won’t be sharing it with anyone; it’s just so I can get in touch with you if I have questions, and to share any parts of the essay in which I share what you told me – to give you an opportunity to clarify anything.

I hope you will participate.  If you have any questions, feel free to use the contact me link on my webpage.

Update 16 March 2017: The questionnaire is now closed.  Thank you to all who participated.

To receive the questions by e-mail, contact me, and I’ll e-mail you the questions.  Then you can e-mail your answers back to me.
