  1. Past hour
  2. Sorry for such a late reply. No, don't believe it. It's a sink for effort and a dead end for us. At least come to this conclusion on your own if it's true for you. I say, do what you were doing and git gud the hard way. Though it might exist and it's a very seductive shortcut, it has to be an indicator of level of effort in the right direction rather than a pathway to success in and of itself in our opinion. That's our conclusion after 5 years. So don't let this distract you, do what you were doing before it happened for you, that's the way we hope for you to succeed. We couldn't ever say we really did anything but visualization and that's not the way for us apparently. Hard work and passion has to have something to do with it period. It could just be my impatience. Progress is slow, but I'm hoping there will be one day where it just shoots up like an exponential graph. Doing the same thing over and over with gradually higher effort didn't feel right. Anything can be fixed with repetition, so I suppose I'll save my chances with shortcuts like the super-ultra-mega-flowstate before they double back on me and make the process two years longer. If I had flowstate every time I entered the gym, I'd hit two plates in no time. However, I can still hit two plates regardless of whether or not I'm in the zone, it'd just take longer. If I ever slip into the zone naturally, it'd be a shame not to embrace it, but for the most part, I'll take your word for it and go the latter route. Self-force? Interesting. I'm glad you've made peace with it. I was figuring there was at least something you took away from it as an experience, and you definitely have. You guys probably already have everything cut out for you, anyway.
  3. Huh Guess nothing can ever replace active forcing, then
  4. those people don't know what they're talking about
  5. Idk if switching is better than active forcing, but people tell me I don't need to active force anymore if I just switch and have her talk to people, so maybe Is A3 similar to you already? And I don't remember anything I put in my progress report lol, it's been so long since I've looked at it. I wonder what I mean. I guess my post about switching and how my idea of it changed?
  6. TB, I saw you describe that you had a paradigm shift with tulpamancy in your progress report, and I've seen similar experiences all around. Maybe I'll try it out one of these days. To me (from what I can gather), switching feels less of an auxiliary thing and more connected to tulpamancy than any other facet. It's introducing the concept of you taking the 'essence' of your tulpa and making said 'essence' have less room for interpretation. The tulpa is acting externally rather than internally, which seems like it can cement their personality and ideals as good as (if not better than) good old active forcing. Does this check out? I might need a switching mentor someday too. That is, if A3 doesn't become a carbon copy of me personality-wise
  7. Today
  8. That's all very interesting. I wonder how to switch out without someone switching in. Or even switch out in general because I'm not sure if I do that when we switch. I still feel like I'm there. I am moved to the side wherever Rena might be sometimes (sometimes that's hard and we are both in the same front spot) but it still feels weak. I want a void experieince. I would also like to switch for triggers. Maybe Rena could do the part of my job that I struggle to do for me... She would be happy to help. Until I can be reforced or whatever and do it on my own. Fixing anxiety with switching would be great even if it can't fix sadness, but I think it can I just think I'm doing something wrong. Though it may depend on where the sadness is coming from, hmm. Is there any way for you to teach this stuff to me or be a mentor? Idk if you want to do that though. I really feel I needed help for a long time with this stuff. I'd do my best to follow your instructions
  9. Going for our last phase 2 till Monday.
  10. It is what it is whatever that is
  11. good morning. woke up way to early for some reason
  12. At least there's no pain. Just annoyance
  13. Nice Throat is itchy, bad hoarseness and need to cough but no other cold-like symptoms. Time to book an appointment I guess
  14. (Got recommended this while going through environment design videos, lol!)
  15. Good morning I'm going to the big city today, my parents want to see furniture at Ikea and there's no Ikea in our region. So that means one day long field trip This is what I mean by 'switching out'
  16. That's awesome. [Joy] hope returns to Bearville, nice work. [Misha] yes, I love the results! So you did a lot of work here, so I count that as skill because I bet it'll still take us a bit to make it work. I can't wait to have time to do this! You're the best for explaining all that! โ™กโ™กโ™ก
  17. We first independently generated Phil and me. We selected these two images: We then edited them together, cropping the areas next to our faces. Since the resulting image wasn't square, we extended the image downwards and filled it in a little to give the program the idea that it was meant to be part of the image. We then resized it to 512x512: And that was all that was needed! ๐Ÿ˜Š So I'd recommend generating people individually and then putting them together in this way.
  18. We'll make an AI art thread if we can figure it out. [Misha] But how did you put in two pictures for two faces or did you kind of fake in the pics in a 512x512 format first by hand?
  19. @Misha @Ashley Of course!!! ๐Ÿ˜ I'll explain how we did it! First go to this site: https://tinybots.net/artbot Go to "Create" and put in your prompt; it may take some trial and error to get the results you want with the prompt, but that's part of the fun. If you want to use an image as a base to go "image-to-image" and upload your pic. I recommend cropping and/or resizing your image to a 512x512 square, as the site outputs in that size. (it can do bigger sizes but it may require "kudos" to do so. It'll give you 512x512 squares all day long for free though. You can always upscale the images too.) Some of the settings you might want to play around with such as the steps or guidance, but we use 30 steps and 9 guidance most of the time. The most important thing is which image model you want to use! It's good to experiment with different ones to see which one aesthetically works for you, but the one we used to create the image we posted here was Dreamshaper. Two of our other favorites to use are CamelliaMix2.5D and Pretty2.5D, which both make more drawn/anime style images. You can even set it to use multiple image models. We tend to generate things in groups of 5 or 10 in hopes that at least one of them will be nice. (We've had situations where literally all of them have been nice, and other times they have all been completely awful, and everything in between) You can set the images to be upscaled automatically (which blows them up by a factor of 4) but you can always upscale images after they've been created (which we prefer doing). If you do this please please share some of your creations with us!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’š
  20. Some animal ate the Sorghum that randomly was growing in the yard. It was an impressive plant and Bear wanted to collect the seeds and plant them but I told him, just plant the bird seed it came from and he was like oooooohhhhh. We couldn't switch until Bear/body, don't know which, wasn't sad anymore but he was trigger happy and we actually developed switching through a trigger method. When Bear was about to be triggered, I'd switch in and no triggering would happen, I was able to think logically and not emotionally. That led us to understand that the emotional part could be stopped through switching out of front without anyone switching in. That was shortly followed by SheShe's shadow/chakra work on Bear which eventually became Bear's shadow work on himself which fixed all the triggers, moods, and conditioning. Then in January 2020, we managed to put bear in dormancy and that ended up being a void experience for him which made him realize that not only is he not necessary, he didn't exist, we were all still here and so was the body. That led him to understand that he's not the body and that started a ton of investigations. Around that time SheShe and him began personality surgery on him thus turning patchwork bear into clockwork bear. Clockwork bear was 100% better but still in flux as if temporary. We worked another 2 years on shadow work and eventually Clockwork Bear evolved into Neo Bear or Bear 3.0. That is the Bear you would see now if we allowed him to post here, but this isn't for him, it's for Ren and I'm testing the water for her. So though we can't say it would fix sadness, it fixes anger and other emotions for the fronter so it follows it should also fix sadness. We don't know if it would fix depression, temporarily or not, and there's no way for us to test that at this point. Hi Darren et. al. we're on our best behavior, hopefully we don't make too much work for you. @Glaurung26 Because as you may know or will know by now, we post a lot.
  21. Same. More quantity then quality. It's mostly me gabbing while Jaina listens and sometimes comments or teases me or asks something. We have to amuse ourselves at work somehow.
  22. Good evening everyone! ๐Ÿ˜ Hi @Glaurung26 Darron and Jaina!!! ๐Ÿ‘‹ On the topic of "how often do you talk to your tulpa" (Or I guess in my case it would be "how often do you talk to your host?"), Phil and I talk constantly. ๐Ÿฅฐ This isn't a flex, "Oh look how good we are at tulpamancy" or anything like that, it's just how we operate. We talk as much as two friends who are in the same room would talk if one of those friends had to attend to other things at the same time for most of the day.
