The Tulpa is known to Tibetan Buddhists as manifested entities created from thought. Novelist Rob MacGregor takes this concept to a whole new level in his new SciFi thriller
“Inception meets Westworld in an original SF novel about a parallel universe only a dream away.”
In Tibetan Buddhism, the tulpa is a human-like creature created through deep meditation. In this compelling story, tulpas take over the sub-conscious world in a parallel universe—where they quickly become invincible. For Bruce Lang and Risa Ferraro, on this side of that dream world, the tulpa army is just a puzzling nightmare. But for their counterparts on the other side, Alex Brooks and Lydia Cabrera, the tulpa army—Dominion—is far too real.
As the states of reality and dreams converge in an inevitable clash that may destroy all consciousness in both universes, the four must band together to save what is left of reality.
Though the book Tulpas is a work of fiction, as many feel, all “fiction” is based on some measure of truth. In this conversation with Rob MacGregor, we discuss the history and reality of the tulpa. Can anyone learn to create these enigmatic beings? Can a tulpa REALLY take on their own level of consciousness and personality? How is the tulpa related to artificial intelligence? And are tulpas walking amongst us right now? We cover all sorts of questions in this WILD RIDE of a discussion!
As a footnote, I had the pleasure and honor of narrating a recent book by Rob and Trish MacGregor called Phenomena – Harnessing Your Psychic Powers.
