[Patreon Unlock] The Corkboard Bizarre – Tulpas!

Published by

Sequoyah had to deal with some rough stuff this week so in lieu of chaining him to his keyboard and squeezing an episode out of him like an old citrus, we’re unlocking an episode of our bonus series where we dive into the weird, disturbing, and hilarious world of internet tulpamancy. What’s a tulpa? Well a tulpa (aka “tupper,” apparently) is a thoughtform entity created by the power of belief that gains external agency and sentience. It’s a concept from esoteric Tibetan Buddhism by way of Theosophy. But we’re not talking about that side of it. We’re talking about kids on 4chan learning how to break their brains in the pursuit of fun and profit. It’s usually neither, in the end.
