Everyone's familiar with Descartes' "I think, therefor I am", but how can I be sure anyone else exists? Is there a empirical method towards confirming someone's existence?
>Yet observations are of fault, and every step of the twinning with the transcendental community is guilty of assuming the reality of the community in the first place.
Phenomenologicaly speaking, the sphere of intentional objects is the prime reality, and in that sense, observation are correct, because to transcendental subject obervations and reality are one and the same. Assuming there is material universe from which intentional objects are projected, the entire experience is already falsified, elemental particles and laws of physics being the 3rd party. The only non-theological way to connect the experience and a priori assumed reality is to attempt to cross the gap using as few and as small leaps of faith as possible.
>tulpafags, who commit every step of Husserl's proof of community- with themself, and no one else
That is, assuming tulpa does not have a monad of its own.

I'd go a step further and argue that it's ultimately pointless to wrack your brains over the potential truths that may or may not be there. Consciousness is flawed by design - that's how it is. We can't change that. Best we can do is take what we have and try to find happiness within it, even if it may or may not be illusory.
At the very best, I could imagine Tulpas are a "shut-off" part of the user's subconsciousness that has a (limited) consciousness of its own. Kind of like how you can run two different programs on the same computer. Or, more bluntly put, a voluntary form of a multiple personality disorder.
>it's ultimately pointless to wrack your brains over the potential truths that may or may not be there
Denying cognition completely is a self-defeating position, might as well turn to positivism.
>form of a multiple personality disorder
Despite what they usually show in film, multiple personality disorder is not a state when multiple separate concious minds coexist at the same time in one body, but rather an occurence of single conciousness believing itself to assume a different identity, usually accompanied by dissociative amnesia, a rather extreme cause of roleplaying.
>but rather an occurence of single conciousness believing itself to assume a different identity, usually accompanied by dissociative amnesia, a rather extreme cause of roleplaying.
That was sloppy wording on my part. The different "personalities" in someone suffering from MPD ultimately are part of the same consciousness - in the sense that they could not know something the main personality does not know unless its stored in the subconsciousness.
My point is that Tulpas as they are (probably) are not supernatural entities, but simply a psychological malfunction. A child's "invisible friend" for adults.
Why worry if others exist? If they truly exist, then those who are worth it, should be treated well and with the respect they deserve. If they do not really exist, then treat them the same respect, but understand that they are illusory figures, and do not grow attached.
Since the board is slow, I guess a dream thread might be appropriate, as many people suppose that we enter a wholly different realm in our sleep.
I'll start with a short one.
>in 2nd story bedroom
>look out window
>see black cat walking in street front of house
>morphs into a human figure
>still black, like a shadow
>black figure makes a mad dash towards my front door
>just about shit myself in fear

>run to the top of the stairs outside my bedroom

Dreams as a whole are an extremely easy and vastly underrated gateway to /x/ stuff.
>Why do we have them?
Dreams are the link between conscious and subconscious, they absolutely have a prophetic aspect, but most people don't realize just how prophetic they really are. If you can identify what creatures, things, and events happen in your dreams, they can correspond to how your day in the waking world will unfold.
Dream diaries are nice for remembering dreams, but having a dictionary helps immensely.
If you know how to remember and "view" your old dreams, you can even change the dream you had last night to influence how your day will go today.
Many say it can be used as a gateway to astral projection, and that kind of thing is a "depending on the person" type of deal. I had a sleep paralysis episode that I thought I was still awake, got out of my bed, and then it turns out I was in a lucid dream which looked like a teal-blue victorian-era hallway that was filled with darkness.
I keep having this dream every couple of months.
>I'm in my living room
>try to turn a light on
>none of the switches work
>or if they do, the light is very dim, flickering, and goes out in 10 seconds
>always feel a sense of urgency to turn the lights on
>always feel watched
Is there any deeper meaning than me being apparently afraid of the dark?
My guess you probably have fears of the unknown, and/or fears of losing the truth to liars.
Not sure if that's exactly what you think the fear of dark means, but it's just my spitballing.
If you want to recall more dreams, you should keep a dream journal. Just get a blank notebook and write the date and the dream in first person present tense (i.e. "I see a bioluminescent afro-american federal agent")
Do not analyze the dream as you are writing it down or fill out the blanks if you don't remember something.
If you want to achieve more lucid dreams or Out-of-Body Experiences/Astral projections, you should have a regular sleep schedule and don't drink alcohol/coffee, use drugs or take melatonin because if you are too deep in sleep, you won't either have lucid dreams and OBEs or you won't remember them. One of the methods to induce a lucid dream/OBE is to sleep for a few hours (say 3 hours) and setup an alarm. Once the alarm goes off, get out of the bed for like 5-10 minutes and then go back to sleep.
Also, I want to point out that clairvoyance and precognition are real and anyone can learn to do it, at least to some extend.
I've had dreams that predict shit that would later happen many times throughout my life, shit's weird but I'm used to it. Never really important stuff, just things that I would think back, "oh yeah, I dreamt about X last night, and Y happened today." I've had spooky shit happen in my dreams that felt fictional (which is fun because you can have power fantasies similar to the OP) but also spooky shit that "feels real" - these feel somehow malicious and caused by other entities and I can't explain it, but I think they are demons trying to fuck with people while they sleep. The one or more I'm thinking of have to do with shapeshifting and imitating people or animals you are familiar with to get close to you. In one case I also saw something while waking, going through the wall above my bed after laughing at me. When these dreams happen now I pray to God for protection and it seems to work. I don't get the shit scared out of me and I wake up calmer. I've only had maybe 4 or 5 in my life of those malicious-feeling nightmares, hopefully never again. I've only had a spooky sleep paralysis experience once or twice, but it didn't feel the same way, so I assume those were all in my head getting psyched out. I've also had a couple uneventful sleep paralysis. I don't think I want to invite whatever into my dreams for fear of what could happen, so I'm not interested in more than lucid dreaming for playful reasons like having more dreams where I can fly or do o
What is it? Why do people age faster there? Why hasn't anyone climbed it and finished it? Tell me what is it? Why is it?
Mount Kailash is a holy site to Hindus, Jains, and Buddhists. People climbing it would plainly cause lots of butthurt from the involved parties, and climbers who were offered permission to do so (including Reinhold Messner) did not take up the offer for the same reason.
As of today, China has also banned any mountaineering on Mount Kailash for the same reason.
Probably exaggerated. What I could imagine is that the the atmospheric conditions up there slightly cause your skin to retract/shrink, exposing more of the nail/hair in the process. A bit like with corpses whose nails and hair supposedly continued to "grow" well after death.
The more interesting part is that "Russian scientists" suggested the top part of Mount Kailash is actually man-made (and/or houses a nuclear reactor). Sadly, none of the sites I looked up ever bothered to explain just who these "Russian scientists" were.
Btw by the "rapid aging I meant more like you age a bit faster.
That reminds me of that one wierd video of one ruskie trting to create hybrid of human and chivken and creates some abomination. I dunno why, but It reminda me of it.
you mean this guy? his channel had a good run, shame he stopped posting as he allegedly died of a heart attack.
rumour goes his neighbour saw lots of unusual movement and cops confiscating his belongings as soon as he died
where do I find videos of this dude?
All suggestions about the "rapid aging" parts I saw specifically described your hair and fingernails growing by "two weeks", even if you only spent "twelve hours" near Mount Kailash.
Which either makes it a very clear-cut phenomenon, or means they serve copypasta from the same Indian poo-in-the-loo bullshit esoteric source that also tries to sell you fermented cowpiss as a means to ensure eternal life.
What do you listen to spookster anons? Any favorites?
Graveyard Tales is 2 old southern fags shit talking random spooky events and is well worth a listen.
Jim Harrold's camp fire is a call in show where people tell him their creepy or weird stories and he compiles them into an episode. Pretty hit or miss with the odd story which will linger in the back of your mind. He also does the paranormal podcast where he interviews two different people each week. Mostly trying to sell you books but still some quality there.
Mysterious universe. 2 aussies shit posting at maximum non-banned from youtube levels.
Monsters Among Us is a call-in show for "real" paranormal experiences. Hit or miss and some calls are BS but others seem genuinely believable.
What the hell are you talking about? One of the knockoff channels that uploads old David Paulides interviews? Because Paulides is on jewtube, he uploaded this week.
TV show, his new show, whatever, almost all of his old stuff is gone.
He doesn't have a tv show. I think you're confused, there were some "imposter" channels that he's been complaining about that got deleted recently. He has movies, which are all still up on youtube. His actual channel is called "Canam Missing Project".
His documentaries and some scenes in the trailer looked like TV shows or specials but he definitely had a podcast years that was repeatedly deleted by YouTube for discussing things that were too close for the alphabet's comfort.
So this apparently is a thing over at baguette land right now (or rather, has been a thing since the entire year). Basically, French farmers are complaining that unknown attackers kill or at least mutilate their horses, with things ranging from ears being cut off to "injuries in the anal and vaginal areas".
What makes this more interesting than the prospect of severely sexually frustrated Bronyfags is that France also has seen an uptick in what allegedly is Satanism, with numerous churches being desecrated (to be fair, the alleged Satanists would share that hobby with with local representants from the religion of peace).
So what's your take - are there attackers actual satanists? Have Muslims decided that horses are now haram, too? Or are it just some edgy teenage kids hopping onto something which never would have happened if the media had not bothered to report on it?
I'm gonna put my money on niggers.
>ranging from ears being cut off to "injuries in the anal and vaginal areas".
Reminds me of vid related, is that all the information that has been divulged on these incidents?
This article quotes the French agriculture minister Julien Denormandie, with him saying that "ears are cut off, eyes removed, an animal is emptied of its blood". One horse owner also is described as having struggled with two (human) attackers who went after his horses with a pruning knife.
Ultimately, I doubt there's ayyliens involved in cattle mutilations. Wannabe satanists, animal haters, or people who have it out against the owner of the animals for one reason or another seem more likely culprits.
The entire thing about eyes/ears/genitalia being mutilated also isn't that surprising when you consider that a) animal predators will often go for these first as the soft tissue is easier to eat than having to chew through the animal's hide, and b) human culprits may intentionally target those areas for the shock factor in itself.

Lets get some tales of ghosts up in here. Either copy pasta or screenshot.don't let me down.
>stories about jumping out the 13th story window
>hotel only has 12 at most depending on how you count it
Not exactly ghost-related but I just opened an article on Beelzebub and my cat immediately started mewing. I almost shit myself, Jesus Christ.
I got a few but nothing crazy
>visiting family up north
>uncle showing off his new house
>me and brother staying up late playing Xbox in the living room
>stop playing because we keep hearing something clicking on and off in the kitchen
>go check it out
>see one of the light switches moving up and down on its own
>get out of there and go to sleep
Its not the only paranormal thing I've seen happen there. Some of my family refuse to sleep in one of his rooms because they hear whispers coming from the closet and usually have weird dreams, Another time I was living with him because he got me a job and one night while I was playing video games I saw out of the corner of my eye a something run down the hall and head down stairs. I thought it was one of his kids but he had just dropped them off at the pool and I was alone in the house.
Anyone have screen cap of that story about the guy who tried to fuck his sleep paralysis demon and never posted back?
Hello Anon, you will see lately I have been interested with the summons especially the one of lesser spirits. They had told me that pic related is used for that, but I'm not very sure about it, could someone help me to answer questions? (You can also use the thread to talk about the summons, doubts, material, etc.)
Anon, it does not work like that
If you ask nicely I'll give you a good eight inches, anon.
Y-you can a-answer my question?
GUYZ HELP I THINK MY BUTT IS HANTED IT KEEPS MAKING SCURY NOISES!!
Let'em shit post, they're not fucking up the ghost story, boogeyman mythology, or space fake threads.
>mfw browsing this thread
did OP ever fix his haunted problem
speaking of anons with haunted problems, whatever happened to the anon from 8chan /x/ who one day lost his entire identity? The one who tried to go to work one day only for his workplace to say they didn't know him, his landlord not recognising him, and getting himself checked in as a john doe?
First post here, IIRC he posted weeks later, he checked himself to the hospital if they could identify him and at some point doctors found some lumps in his brain, probably a tumor.
I don't recall if he was identified and then given treatment or something but he deduced he had lost his bird due to his brain not connecting some data.
