:The change that occurs to a tulpa's personality or form during and after creation, seemingly against or independent of your own conscious will. (Note: Some people prefer to simply use the word change instead)<br />

==== Dissipation ====
  +
:The process of a mind fading from existence, becoming less distinct and sentient over time. Sometimes happens to young tulpae starved of attention or stimuli. A long process that is a touchy subject for a lot of the community.<br />

  +
<br />
  +
