  1. This was an interesting thread, any updates or further thoughts?
  2. Good to know. That's why it's so helpful for people to share tips, experiences, guides. So we don't waste time doing less efficient things that other people have already figured out.
  3. True. I expect walking away and towards would help for sense of space too.
  4. Instead of walking around your tulpa for imposition, do you think having them rotate in place (as if on a rotating platform) would be equally effective? Lowkey don't have a lot of space indoors to walk around invisible people.
  5. Just keep forcing, she'll come back when she can. Don't "wait" in the sense of not forcing. I've had times when I became exhausted or very sleepy from forcing--forcing in the evening and the next morning I'm exhausted, which sometimes lasted for the entire for the entire day. Just make sure you get enough sleep.
  6. "If your tulpa could be active in wonderland without your attention, why would you ever talk to them again?" That's just a really bizarre take. People like to spend time with their headmates, I assume that's why anyone takes up tulpamancy, to spend time with tulpas... Ah yes, make a tulpa so you can leave them in wonderland and never speak to them again! I've love to learn parallel processing, so that we can do more together, not less. So if I'm busy with work or literally anything else, they don't go inactive. So they can pay attention and think about things without stopping me from thinking as they do so. Parallel processing has huge potential for improving quality of life for systems. As for large systems, I don't know much. I suspect many of them have limitations that they gloss over or seem unaware of. One large non-tulpa system I talked to would say things like "if we remember so and so we believe that means they were thinking of us" and "we don't really see the headspace, people just come and go and we haven't seen some people in ages." That doesn't seem promising for what state their non-fronting headmates are in. But I did talk to one host who had over 60 tulpas and it seems she does pay attention to them in their worlds all day. It's no small feat and would probably count as maladaptive daydreaming. My very tentative take is that if the system is putting lots of effort into building and maintaining activity for headmates, they probably have more going on than systems who just leave things be and put no effort in.
  7. Yeah, Sailor Moon does have a lot of filler, sometimes I don't think of that. The plot does build and eventually go places though (Utena does this too but it's edgier and more subversive). Most anime now days are only 12 episode long, with no filler, so in comparison older shows can seem like too much fluff. CCS has plenty of episodes where not a lot happens either. I do feel like longer shows can leave a more lasting impression, the characters more iconic or memorable. Even if it's only because you saw 5-10x more of it than shorter shows. I'm really fond of Sailor Moon after watching all 200 episodes and the movies :'D
  8. Death Note's probably fine if she's watched My Hero Academia. MHA and HunterxHunter can be really violent at times. HxH in particular gets quite dark. Death Note's pretty mild imo, it's more about mind games than anything. As for recommendations, you got some good ones but she could try Card Captor Sakura or Sailor Moon for some classic magical girl genre. Haikyuu is another shounen anime but it's pretty popular with female fans.
  9. Should there really be R-rated movies for Tulpa Movie Night? There are a lot of minors in the community (and yeah, I know a lot of teens don't really care, but still).
  10. Ooohhh, I had watched the first 4-5 episodes of Brotherhood and dropped it. Everything about it just seemed worse (including the art style imho). Everyone else seems to love it but I'm not sure if I can make myself watch it. I love the 2003 FMA.
  11. Those are some good series. Ouran is a long time favorite of mine, haven't rewatched it in a while, though.
  12. I actually like falling asleep talking with my tulpa. It hasn't caused us any problems.
  13. I struggled with this kind of thing for a while. In my observation, when you ask a young tulpa a question, the brain kind of scrambles to give out an answer without thinking things through. And the possibility of multiple answers can give this inconsistent jumble. The solution is for your tulpa to think things out properly, let her take her time, ask her to elaborate on replies. When she starts thinking, just let her thoughts flow without examining them or worrying about whether it's her or not. For me the most important thing for overcoming these kinds of problems is understanding that you share a brain, you use the same areas of the brain to do things, and that can make it feel like you are parroting your tulpa. When you talk with your tulpa, don't expect their replies to pop in from the void with no mental effort involved. It will take the same level of mental effort that your own thoughts take, otherwise her thinking abilities are being stunted by these expectations of alien no conscious effort responses. The difference between your thoughts and hers will be who's identity is attached. The distinction grows stronger with experience/practice, and details like using a different mindvoice, including form visualization, will help. Ideally it will feel like you're thinking your thoughts and she is thinking hers, but things can still get jumbled sometimes, nothing is perfect. Another important thing to consider is that your tulpa does not know anything that you don't know, and that includes knowing whether words were parroted or not. There's no secret knowledge, no magic. She could assert that a statement is hers or not, and build off of that assumption, maybe. If it seems like she doesn't know herself, she probably doesn't. She may need time thinking about herself more to figure things out. One last thing about mindset. We've found that doubt can be a killer. It can stop thoughts in their tracks, stop them from forming in the first place. If she says something and you doubt it, it subtracts from everything that makes her up in the brain, it tells the brain it was on the wrong track. If you think things like "she can't do this", "the brain won't cooperate" and such, it can become the lived experience. I know it can be very frustrating, and when you're feeling discouraged and you have all these thoughts of previous failures, ambiguities, bad experiences it can be hard to adopt a positive mindset. Remember the good times, get as hyped and motivated as you can, and go into your forcing session ready to succeed. Build upon the positive experiences.
  14. Try not to clear your mind when you talk with them. They use the same parts of the brain to think as you do, and when you clear the mind or focus on nothing, they may not be able to think in that state. In a sense, when you listen intently like that, you are directing the brain to listen... when it needs to be thinking from your tulpa's perspective. It can take some practice to find that balance between listening and not clearing the mind. But when you talk to your tulpa, pause and listen, and just let the thoughts flow. You may feel some parrotnoia, but just let the thoughts form anyway. You want to encourage the brain to create tulpa thoughts, the more they think, the more there is to them--the mind will start building a database of things your tulpa has said and done, and they'll become more consistent and real over time.
  15. Give them some prompts or topics to think about, and they can try to talk as much about that topic on their own. If they get stuck, guide them along a bit, just ask them more questions to get them thinking. It's a good way for them to explore their own thoughts and build opinions about things.
  16. That dragon sketch is really good 😮
  17. neo, do you think you could practice this for a week or so and report on how it went? The idea is interesting but it sounds like you only did it once or twice. Just asking as a forum member.
  18. Yeah, the term you're looking for is wonderland immersion, not (reverse) imposition. If you get comfy and reduce external distractions, you should be able to forget about your physical senses for the most part. I'd recommend reading around r/hyperphantasia to get an idea of some of the stuff people with excellent visualization skills can do https://www.reddit.com/r/hyperphantasia/
  19. This is less of a guide and more of a "Here's something I did," except your method has not stopped intrusive imagery for you. The wording is confusing as well. As Breloomancer mentioned, this feels like a post in part of a discussion. I cannot approve this guide/tip in its current state.
  20. I have come across people on a plural Discord server who also have switching walk-ins. One system in particular reminds me of your case--they started with a tulpa, but after depressive episodes leaving the front empty, new headmates would form in front. This situation has just continued for them. I've heard the term "Adaptive system" to describe these non-traumagenic systems who get new headmates like this. You can PM me if you want to know the server/person mentioned.
  21. I can't help but think this is the wrong approach... If parallel processing is compared to vocality, I feel what you're trying to do is akin to hoping a young tulpa who has never spoken will next dictate an entire book. I read the conversation mentioned and had my own thoughts. If I were to approach this, I think there are a bunch of skills to work on before other things like hidden wonderland adventures can be achieved. Here's a list of things I think would need to develop first: I think the ability to stay active separately in wonderland depends on the ability for the non-fronter to maintain their own attention and awareness, and to think without interfering with the fronter. I like the idea of approaching these skills like early vocality, treating very small and maybe iffy results as success. I'd love for someone who can actually do this stuff to weigh in on how to progress.
  22. I'm glad to hear you guys are doing well!
