    This is an interesting philosophic question. And of course the simple answer is yes. But the deeper answer lies in the distinction between imagination and reality.

    The work of children is play. And the purpose of play is to learn to distinguish between imagination and reality.

    Imagination without reality is fancy, and reality without imagination is lifeless. So both are equally important.

    And they are both equally important because each is the end of a bridge called transformation. And as we cross from imagination to reality, and from reality to imagination, we are transformed.

    Interestingly, this transformation is expressed mathematically in, The Laws of Form, by George Spencer-Brown.

    So as we notice, Mole is transformed as he passes from imagination to reality, as we might expect.

    And like a young poet I want Mole to come true.

    At first Mole started bleeding out of virtual reality into the real world, and I started hesitantly introducing myself as Mole.

    This has been surprisingly successful and more and more greet me with, G'day Mole.

    It is as though Mole is having a love affair with the world, and the world is saying, Mole.

    I feel as light as a feather blown by the breeze from warm muzzle to warm muzzle as, Mole.

    You mean to say you've successfully created a tulpa?

    Precisely, and what a lovely, interesting and charming tulpa Mole is.

    The Tibetans have their tulpas, and we describe the same imagined being as a permanent trance plane. But they are the same being.

    We can read about the trance plane or tulpa in, From Magic to Technology, by Dennis R. Wier at Download Freely - Expert PDF Reader
