    If you have trouble staying in wonderland, here's a little trick you can use. When you first enter, jump twice. Then, duck twice. Turn left, then right, then left, then right. Press your left hand then your right. Then start.

    The most progress is made while you're having fun, I think! Skydiving sounds like a lot of fun, really. Your tulpaforcing time doesn't have to be all chair and meditation. If you have adventures while moving about, your body won't get the cramps, and you'll be able to go longer and do more things. You can imagine Ré in your world, and bring a whole wonderland of world from in there into your own. With some practice, imagined reality can mesh well with the real world. Why don't you try that more? I, for one, have made far more progress out and about than down in my chair. Not knocking the chair, mind you. Trancing is good, but it's easier to focus and work longer and harder out of a trance than in one.
  2. You make it sound like she exploded. xD Just to clarify, this pop was the sound that the freshness seal button on the cap of a glass bottle would make, for example, a snapple bottle. She did this once while I was inside, then when I went out on a walk, she did it over and over again for like 10 minutes. I kept looking around thinking, "where is that sound coming from?" even though it was the same sound I heard from when I was inside and I knew it was coming from her, I could hardly wrap my head around it. For a couple minutes I thought maybe it was coming from an animal in the trees somehow, but then we walked away from the trees and she kept doing it. After 10 minutes it started fading, and she finally stopped and tossed the illusory bottle away. "It's fun!" she said. But me, my mind was blown.
  3. *pop pop* I heard, out of the blue. It came from exactly the place where my tulpa, Makiko, was. "Was that you?" I asked. "yah," she says. "How did you do that?" I said. "ay-uh-no," was her reply, with a shrug. If she speaks, I hear her voice, but she very often produces sounds and images like that to communicate with me. For example, to convey a location, she puts an image of the place in front of me. Sometimes, she plays a song, or makes some sound, like she did now. I guess I wasn't sure exactly how it was going to end up when I started, but I certainly could never have guessed any of the things that have gone on in my head up to this point. So, regardless of how far along you might be, is it turning out to be anything like you expected? What are some of the strange things going on in your world these days?
  4. Since a tulpa is a literal part of yourself, any ethical issues would equate to the same when applied to your own self. I would consider treatment of yourself on the same lines as treatment of any other person. If it wouldn't be right to do to someone else, it's not right to do to yourself, I say. On the question of how sentient a tulpa is, in my mind it's a moot point. You yourself are sentient. If a part of your mind gives a voice, be it a hallucination or any other sort, it's necessarily as much sentient as you are, being that it's a part of you to begin with, and your own mind made it. The question isn't whether it's sentient but actually how distinct is it from your own consciousness, that is to say, how much of its sentience is assigned its own identity. Since there are a number of parts comprising an identity, from my point of view, there are therefore many varying degrees of distinction a separate consciousness can have. For example, it may or may not have its own vision of the world, as with hearing. Certain memories, individual thoughts, conditioned reactions, learned skills, and so on may or may not be shared with you. It doesn't need to be fully distinct in every respect to be declared independent, and in fact it may be undesirable or perhaps even impossible to be as fully distinct as two individual people. After all one of the benefits of sharing a mind is that all occupants can potentially share these resources.
  5. Yeah, it does sound like the girl in that book made a tulpa!

    Progress! You can't expect every day to be full of excitement, but sounds like you're doing well.
  7. >Does anyone know what the limit for visualization clarity is? I'd say the limit is unimaginable. >Is it possible to get to the point where you're basically having closed-eye hallucinations of an entire world inside of your mind? Almost like an awake form of lucid dreaming. It's possible for this to happen at any time, but very difficult to make it happen on purpose.
  8. I think it would be beneficial for this forum to have an art board. A large part tulpamancing is visualization, which goes hand in hand with creativity and artwork. Not to mention, I'd love to see people's artwork of their wonderlands and tulpa! What do you think?
  9. Another experiment - try to visualize your tulpa in your environment at a distance away from you up against a wall, and relate their proportions to whatever artifacts on the wall. Have your tulpa move, stretch or something and note positions. Then go up close to the wall and do it again. Were you accurate when you did it the first time? (When I do this, I am inaccurate in arm span and height almost every time.)
  10. I suppose you could do it to help with visualizing, but the question in point is, how accurately can you do it? One thing I wonder is if there is any corelation between how accurately you can reproduce your environment with how long you've been attempting visualizations. How good can it get, do you think? If they could visualize a wonderland perfectly, do you suppose someone could navigate an entire maze, perhaps a cornfield one, without error and without bumping into a wall? That would be amazing! Just to clarify, this has everything to do with tulpae, because if you can successfuly hallucinate an image of a person, or anything with any realism it also means that your mind is doing complex processing of your 3d environment with a manufactured image. So my theory is, if you can hallucinate a tulpa perfectly, perhaps you can also navigate such a maze.
  11. Here's something to try. Stand up, and take a look at your room. Pick a specfic point that's at least 5 or 6 steps steps ahead, then close your eyes and walk to that point. Keeping your eyes closed, turn to the left or to the right and try to imagine what it is you'll be seeing when you open your eyes. Then open your eyes and see what it is you are facing. How close did you get? When I tried this outdoors where it was bright, I found I could walk a distance of something like 10 to 20 meters and in some cases I was spot on, and other cases I was maybe a half meter off. I didn't fair nearly as well trying the same thing indoors. Just a note, if you try this experiment outdoors, do be careful that you don't do it in some place where guessing wrong would place you in danger. So, the sidewalk next to a busy street is probably not a good place to try it. An unrailed path on the side of a cliff isn't such a good place either, you daredevil.
