  1. I'm pretty disappointed with Imaginary Mary. Not that it's a bad show--just that the show would lose absolutely nothing without Mary.
  2. Personally, I'm a fan of Jenna Elfman, so part of me wanting to see this is the tulpa aspect, and the other part is me not having seen her for ten or fifteen years.
  3. Just saw the trailer for . Thought this needed to be shared. Also that I need to see it.
  4. Today, Fenchurch is three and a half. We've been talking less than before. I wouldn't even feel confident in saying that it's every day anymore. We definitely don't have conversations anymore. In spite of that, she's still in here, and there are times when I'm really glad of it. I haven't made any progress with imposition in a long time. I have successfully been hypnotized a few times though, even achieving eye catalepsy once. Though I'm not making as much progress there as I'd like to either. I've stopped hypnotizing other people, though I am still learning new things. If I had the confidence to practice in person, I believe I'd quickly become one of the best hypnotists I've ever known. As it is, my inductions can be weak, but otherwise I rate myself quite highly. My girlfriend and I have moved into an apartment. I'm feeling more and more that I would like to stick with her for the rest of my life. She's not everything I want in a woman, but I don't think the sort of women I want are going to be able to put up with me. My ADHD is still a limiting factor in my life. I'm hoping that I'll be able to defeat it with hypnosis, but at the rate I'm going, I'll probably be in the same place years from now. I guess that's all I really have to say.
  5. I really like this idea. Reminds me of a few things I've read. I know there was a trilogy of novels that had a premise like this, but the name isn't coming to mind at the moment.
  6. Well, Fenchurch just took the survey and stylometric test again. Again, it looks like she's developed a writing style that's very distinct from my own. I'm not sure how much of that is context though.
  7. Here's our latest update: http://pastebin.com/uWnFu3p7
  8. I have hypnotized someone to feel like she was being choked (it was a turn-on for her) and she actually did pass out from it. I don't think her airway closed, but she did stop breathing. I believe this is safe in the sense that if you pass out, you will start breathing again. That being said, be very careful doing this in situations where it would be dangerous to pass out, like driving a car.
  9. Nearly all of my relationships started online, and in my experience, dating sites don't really work. The sorts of girls you meet on dating sites (in my experience, at least) are either looking for something casual, or are somewhat desperate. But the sort of girl who replies to this sort of thing is also likely to be desperate. Desperation is unattractive to everything but desperation.
  10. Mistgod, if you do check it out, you should start with Changeling: The Dreaming. I have a hunch it's your sort of thing. Don't get confused though: there's also a line called Changeling: The Lost, which is very different. But this is an interesting thread. I look forward to reading more.
  11. If you're like me, you're the sort of person who reads this sort of thing and thinks "Well, I could do that if I wanted to, but I don't want to." Please actually do this. It only takes a few minutes, and I bet you'll be impressed. This is a simple test that I suspect will show you that your "bad visualization" is better than you think. The first spoiler tag hides a list of words. Give yourself 30 seconds to memorize them, then cover the words again, open up a text document, and write out as many as you can remember in order. When you've done that, open a new text document and write out as many as you can remember--in reverse order. Didn't remember many words, did you? I think I had about five of them, two were out of order, and somehow another word that didn't even belong made its way onto my list. It's fine if you're in the same boat. So now, read the text under the following spoiler tag. It's the same word list, but this time each word has been paired with the next word on the list, and a little scene has been written to help you imagine the two words together. Do your best to imagine what you're reading in as vivid detail as you can. When you're done reading, open a new text document and try to list all of the words in order. Then close it, open a new document, and try to list the words in reverse order. Warning: some of these will be a little disgusting. That's deliberate, and it helps you to visualize them. Did you do better? I don't consider myself very good at visualization, but my recall went up from a handful of words to every single word. I actually forgot how many words there were, but I knew when I had written out the entire list. I wrote them just as easily in reverse order. The only mistake that I made was turning into , which is a pretty small error, all things considered. If you're interested, this comes from the book Tricks of the Mind, by Derren Brown.
  12. Median systems usually don't practice visualization or imposition. But then neither do all hosts. Tulpas can look similar to a median system, but they can also look very different.
  13. This is something I imagine that I think about more than the average teenager here. As I'm almost 31 now, children may not be far away. I've often thought about sharing Fenchurch with my children. I wonder what that would be like. In a way, she might outlive me.
  14. I believe he meant "later than late" rather than a specific time. Something like saying "29 o'clock at night".
  15. That really does sound just like a religion. I've never heard anyone say that ideas are dangerous except in a religious context.
