Adventures in Bronyism, Waifuism and Tulpamancy 3A thought form or 'tulpa' in the internet sense is an interesting mental construct. In essence, a thought form is like an imaginary friend like the kind you would have during early childhood, only one that has been “burned” or “wired” into your mind through highly concentrated and directed thought. Most tulpas (or tulpae?) are intended to be seen, heard and be capable of parallel processing. A tulpa that has been developed to the most extreme extent is said to be able to even take control of the host. A good number of these “tulpamancers” claim to be able to even switch places with their tulpa and have the thought form run their lives without any input from the original “software”, albeit this last one seems a little hard to believe if you ask me.Adventures in Bronyism, Waifuism and Tulpamancy 32 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
The end goal of tulpamancy is to create an advanced, sentient hallucination with complete form to be a companion and aide to you, the “host”. People do this for a variety of reasons,

I write this opening entry in my bedroom; the bedroom that, for over eight years now, I could safely call my own. But tonight everything changes, for tomorrow this room will no longer me my bedroom, but simply an empty bedroom.
For years I have imagined my own freedom; pacing back and forth along the aged blue carpet, rambling on and on to myself about the possibilities, always ending on that solemn note of “But not today.” I would also promise myself to not forget where I had come from; not now or ever. And, as “Day Zero” fast approaches on that swift moon-lit night, I felt it best to begin recording what had happened since my life truly began.
Before I dive into the significance of tonight, and of the beginning of a whole new chapter of my life tomorrow, I wish to pay home age and respects to my childhood, and to summarize in brief d

Now, for those very few of you who are reading this without any prior knowledge, let me give you an introduction. At the start of the 2010s our culture saw something truly extraordinary happen, a children's cartoon show being religiously watched and taken seriously by armies of full grown men and women (Albeit, vast majority being men). For all intents and purposes, this is indeed 'weird' behavior and brings up some questions regarding the mental well being of these people. However, to be fair, Hasbro's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was no ordinary cartoon show as we will soon learn I'm sure. Don't let an elaborate toy commercial with talking animals fool you. Not only was Pony (the show's unofficial short name) designed to be tolerable for a wide audience, but was of unusually high-quality and advanced for it's type, not really something you would find often.
The adult fans of this cartoon crafted a name for themselves, the 'bronies' they were to be called. The br
Adventures in Bronyism, Waifuism and Tulpamancy 5Eventually Twilight Tulpa got the energy and was able to recover our shared psyche out of depression's grasp. This was the third time that unicorn successfully fought back depression, not to mention getting my life started again back in high-school. I know waifus and tulpas are usually not things to be proud of, but I have to admit, if your getting a pony waifu, at least let her be a Twilight Sparkle!Adventures in Bronyism, Waifuism and Tulpamancy 52 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
When I received the first acceptance letter from the two of the colleges that let me in, I experienced a level of happiness and relief that I never felt in a long time. Even though this was no Harvard or MIT, I was still extremely grateful anyway. The question that had my very future in the balance was finally answered. My own heart overtook me and I broke down in tears. In fact, I was so happy and relived that I even demanded a celebration take place with my kin. I (and Twilight Tulpa even) woulden't have it any other way!
The idea crossed my mind to write an epically long and cheesy sou
Adventures in Bronyism, Waifuism and Tulpamancy 4Twilight Tulpa's problem lessened over time, but these were just temporary fixes to a tough situation. We explored the plausibility of more permanent solutions, the most ambitious of our options was to create the rest of her friends as thought forms. This idea, I did not go with as the processor power tax of running at least six (including Spike) other characters full time would be unacceptable. I already had her library set up as a wonderland from day one, we later expanded it to include more of Ponyville and eventually some of Canterlot, including her old library. With school starting again, this would have to do for now, and I would have to switch to passive development as opposed to active tulpamancy sessions.Adventures in Bronyism, Waifuism and Tulpamancy 42 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
With being back in school, I felt safe turning Twilight Tulpa on full time again. She was amazing to see! she was everything I could ask for (despite the fact she wasn't complete of course), determined, beautiful (if I may say so myself) and everything else you'd expect of th
