    • A term I just made up to mean: any mental construct that appears to have any sort of independent mental agency. Includes Minsky agents, IFS what-do-they-call-them, Jungian archetypes perhaps. Crazy Jane alters, Imagos and Imprimers.
    • Not sure if it's a good term though. tulpa in current usage suggests either a servitor (in magical practice) or a kind of artificial doppelganger (Twin Peaks).
    • Sweet, one of only a handful of uses of this term: A Mind/Brain/Matter Model Consistent with Quantum Physics and UFO Phenomena
      • This looks awesome. Written by Themas E. Bearden, a military nuclear engineer, "He also edits Specula , Journal of the American Association of Meta-Science."
      • If kindling continues even further, partial or full materialization occurs. Thus in a few cases, materialization of metal spacecraft, complete with materialized living, breathing crewmen can occur. In addition, such things as Sasquatch, the Loch Ness Monster, and other tulpoids (materialized thought forms) are occasionally materialized, including imps, devils, angels, Virgin Mary, etc.
