What do any of you know about or think of the idea of Thoughtforms (for example the Tibetan Tulpas or Jewish Golems-energy clusters that can be made to do things and take different forms-I'm not crazy! lol)? Or Jungs Archetypes (for example anima/animus).

Perhaps after some elaboration on this statement, we'll then decide whether you are crazy or not.

I've heard of 'thought-experiments' though.

Uhhmmm...it's all in your mind?

J/k...could you give a context? I mean, it's like asking...'what do you know about cars'???

Interesting.

As I understand it a Golem is not so much a thought-form as an animated lump of clay. It can only obey specific instructions and these must be quite exact.

It only obeys that which it is specifically told to do but doesn't necessarily know when to stop or moderate its behaviour.

In the case of shamanic spirits, I believe a shaman (in the Siberian traditions) may collect several of these (rather than 'create' them). Arguably the quest process where the shaman seeks such a form would involve some kind of visualisation of what the form would be and what the abilities of the form would be. A bit like inventing a pokemon, I suppose.

Yeah true, although a golem is still suppsoed to infused with psychic (divine I guess) energy isn't it? Kind of like a thoughtform. So what would you create? I'd make a very obediant and beautiful girl.

The metalsmith in Kalevala did that, he made a golden woman. Personally I'd like a very naughty girl...

I think that this topic is best closed and that 'golems' might be more suitably discussed in the 'zombie' thread.

It has been argued that this whole Universal Creation is, in the first place, a physical manifestation of God's own 'ThoughtForm' and so any 'creature' (however beautiful or naughty) created or manifested by anyone's 'ThoughtForm' can only be an...ehhh...'After-Thought'?
