Host 宿主

The primary consciousness within any given system; the individual who spends the majority of their time in control of their body, and usually the creator of any and all tulpas or other thoughtforms.

指某一系统内的主要意识, 即在操控身体上花费时间最多的个体. 大部分时候是其他tulpa或思维体的创造者.

Tulpa 幻灵*【此词可不翻译,直接用tulpa】

A tulpa is believed to be an autonomous consciousness, existing within their creator’s mind, often with a form of their creator’s initial choice and design.

tulpa被认为具有自我意识, 存在于创造者的意识之内, 通常具有由创造者初始决定设计的形态.【注:下面三个类型已经被归档,这些翻译不建议使用,建议视情况尽可能使用tulpa.cn上的四型分类法(四类分类法链接:

  • Intentional Tulpas: Tulpas created knowingly via deliberate, focused intent by their hosts, often with the use of guides and communities like our own.
  • 创造型: 有意被宿主专注地创造出的tulpa, 通常使用了例如我们社区的教程.
  • Accidental Tulpas: Tulpas not originally intended to be tulpas. Through a variety of different explanations and origins, they develop to be indistinguishable from regular tulpas outside of how they began. This is explained in greater detail in this post.
  • 意外型: 一开始并无意被创作为tulpa, 但变成了tulpa. 即使起源与解释众说纷纭, 他们的发展与普通tulpa通常无异, 除了起源以外. 详见此贴.【注:在中文社区这一类大多也被归类于邂逅型。此概念与下文的邂逅型概念已经停用,尽可能使用四型分类法。
  • Natural Tulpas: Tulpas created by those who have no knowledge of tulpas or the steps usually utilized to create one. They’re often later classified as tulpas when the host finds out about them. They are also usually indistinguishable from conventional tulpas outside of their origins.
  • 邂逅型: 指宿主在没有先验的tulpa知识或方法步骤的情况下创造出了的tulpa, 大部分时间都是在宿主了解到这一概念后被认定为tulpa的. 大部分时间与普通的tulpa无异, 除了出身以外.


Wonderland 幻境

A wonderland is an imaginary world inside your head which you can use as a background when creating your tulpa. There are no limits to what a wonderland can be: how big or small, how realistic or outlandish, and so on. The main function is that they allow your tulpa to experience certain activities with you, in an imaginary sense. In a wonderland, you can your tulpa can build and explore the imaginary world, as well as play games, sports, etc. Your imagination is limitless, so of course you can do anything together. This provides stimulation to your tulpa’s mind and promotes growth, as well as providing the two of you quality time together.


Mindscape 意识空间

A mental environment created in the host’s mind where the host and tulpa can interact visually, without the need for Imposition. Same as Wonderland.

指无需投影即可让宿主与tulpa互动的精神空间. 同 幻境 .【注:此类词语建议统一译为幻境】


Forcing 塑造

Any act relating to the host focusing on, developing, conversing or interacting with their tulpa.

指代宿主专注于tulpa, 与其交流互动, 或者任何与上述内容有关的行为.

  • Active Forcing – Often a dedicated span of time used to focus solely on the tulpa while the host generally tries to avoid any possible distractions. Chatting is often recommended early on, and when you get used to it, watching movies together, reading a book are good examples of activities.
  • 主动塑造 – 指代宿主花费一段长度可观时间将精力完全放在tulpa身上并试图忽略外部影响的行为. 早期进行时推荐单纯地闲聊, 熟悉了以后可以进行一些更好的互动, 如一起看电影, 读读书什么的.
  • Passive Forcing – The host’s focus is elsewhere (work, study, etc.) but they set aside a minimal amount of focus so their tulpa is aware of what is happening. Narration can also be done here.
  • 被动塑造 – 指代宿主专注于其它事物(工作, 学习等)时仍然花费少量精力在tulpa身上以让他们得知现实中发生了什么. 同时也可以进行叙述.
