So, since I see "HOW DO I INTO TULPA" threads every other day, i'm going to write a Guide/FAQ. Enjoy, aspiring tulpamancers.
Common questions on Tulpamancing:
1. "What is a tulpa?"
A tulpa is a self-induced hallucination. Essentially, an imaginary friend for adults. The difference is that tulpas are believed to have their own sentience and personality; their "consciousness" is physically housed in your body, but they present themselves to you in a hallucinatory body that you imagine. The best analogy I can think of is a computer with a partitioned hard drive; both partitions are housed in the same physical drive, but they function as individual hard drives.
2. "Why should I create a tulpa? How will it benefit me?"
Tulpas have a lot of useful functions. They're usually reported to directly access your subconscious, allowing them to recall things like entire pages of books, phone numbers, or where you left your car keys, without you having to memorize them. Now, i'm not suggesting you create a tulpa to help with your homework; it takes a lot of time, and once you get into the habit of imagining your tulpa, it'll probably stay there all of your life. Another good side of a tulpa is that they're good for providing moral support.
3. "Will my tulpa read my thoughts or judge my actions?"
Yes, your tulpa will be able to read your thoughts. However, since you share a mind, you'll also be able to read it's. As for judging your actions, probably not, unless you specifically gave your tulpa a judgemental personality. Tulpas are usually pretty bro.
4. "Can I decide what my tulpa will look and act like?"
If you want. Or you can just let your mind drift and allow the tulpa to "form itself".
5. "Can my tulpa be a fictional character?"
You can try, but I wouldn't. Despite you having some control over the personality and appearance a tulpa is given, it is it's own entity. It probably will not stay true to the character you base it off of. Sorry, bronies.

A few days ago, I had a dream which ended in me collapsing while climbing up some stairs, suddenly going into a great deal of a pain, and my vision slowly fading. As this was happening, I started yelling for help, something along the lines of "HELP! IS ANYONE THERE? I CAN'T MOVE OR SEE!" and in response, an unfamiliar older sounding woman said "That's because you're waking up."

In 1883, a woman was found trampled to death and, on her body and a nearby bush, were clumps of reddish fur. Large hoof prints were found in the area, but locals were perplexed. A short time later, a large animal careened into a tent in which two miners lay sleeping. Though they were unable to identify the beast, again, large hoof prints and tufts of red hair were left behind. After more incidents occurred, the locals finally recognized the large animal as a camel. Soon, people began to report seeing the camel, who one rancher said carried a rider, though the rider appeared to be dead. The next report came from a group of prospectors who saw the camel and while watching him, spied something falling from its back. As the beast moved on, the prospectors went to see what had fallen and discovered a human skull. For the next several years, numerous others spied the camel, who by this time had been dubbed the "Red Ghost,” carrying its headless rider. However, in 1893, when an Arizona farmer found the red camel grazing in his garden, he shot and killed the beast. By this time, the large camel had shaken free of its dead rider, but still bore the saddle and leather straps with which the corpse had been attached.
There was much speculation as to who the mysterious dead rider the camel had carried for several years might have been. One tale alleges that the rider was a young soldier, who was afraid of the camels, and therefore, was having much difficulty in learning how to ride them. In order to teach him how, his fellow soldiers tied him to the top of the beast, determined that he would get over his fear. They then hit the camel on the rump and the beast took off running. Though the soldiers pursued the camel and his rider, the red beast easily outpaced them and escaped into the desert. Neither the camel, nor his helpless rider, were ever seen again.
