A Tulpa is a thoughtform, or being created from the collective thoughts of separate individuals. The concept of Tulpas is theoretical in nature and originates from Tibetan Buddhism mythology, where Tulpas are described as extra bodies that were created from one person’s mind in order to travel to spiritual realms. The Tulpa Effect is the name given to the unintentional creation of a Tulpa based on collective belief of a being with similar traits. One example is that of Slenderman, with numerous stories and online forums and boards devoted to people talking about what they believe Slenderman is, if he exists or not, etc. The Tulpa Effect is that all of these thoughts and devoted attention to the myth has in a way created the reality – a living, breathing creature who may or may not exist in our own dimension as the Slenderman. Many people believe that the Tulpa Effect may have some serious real-life repercussions. Slenderman was invented as a creepypasta story in 2009 – originally pure fiction. If it’s possible that something so recent could be created through the Tulpa Effect – what about something more ancient, such as UFOs and extraterrestrials? Could it be that our fascination with them for so many years has, in effect, created the real thing?
Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb should never have been friends, they were too different from on another. But they did have one thing in common – they both agreed to create the perfect murder – and a mundane pair of eyeglasses would be their undoing.
Little grips people’s imaginations like stories of what might have been, alternative histories where zeppelins fill the skies, the Nazis won WW2 and JFK was never assassinated. One such speculative tale revolves around a subject already heady with conspiracy and legend — the Apollo moon landings. We can only imagine what alternative history would have unfolded if the program hadn’t been cancelled, but continued to explore the Moon. But one man claims the program was not canceled. In fact, he claims that Apollo 18, 19, and 20 did, in fact, go to the moon despite what was reported. And what Apollo 20 found was beyond incredible – it was downright unbelievable. On the other side of the moon, a crashed alien spacecraft – complete with the dead bodies of its crew. I’m Darren Marlar and this is Weird Darkness.
