Approved, Guides.


The kind of imposition described in this guide is somewhat different from the one described in most other imposition guides (JD1215's, FAQ_Man's, Fede's, ...).


endoalir's method involves learning to get immersed in one's imagination to the point of ignoring real senses completely, then recreating the real senses into a wonderland where the tulpa is imposed, while keeping those senses and that wonderland in sync.


Someone could learn both methods independently, although they should keep in mind that the original imposition methods were more about mixing imagination and real senses, rather than recreating real senses through/in imagination while being fully immersed in your imagination.


The author himself had some various issues with using this method (mostly along the lines of desync's with the real senses), thus as far as I remember, he didn't recommend this as a complete replacement of traditional imposition methods.


Also, it's worth noting that for most people, this "daydream state" where one is fully immersed in their imagination isn't always trivial to archive - especially the "fully ignoring" senses bit, however practice should improve such skills.


> All the while, as you are entering and exiting this daydream state, you are actually manufacturing artificial memories.


A few people may find this interpretation questionable, but I'm not sure if there's much of a difference from truly instantly perceiving something and having a memory of it and "manufacturing" (by imagining) memories - I suppose one could say some memories are generated in your imagination, while some memories are "factual" and come from your real senses - and in this example, you get clear memories of spending time with your tulpa while they feel real to you, which are subjectively true memories, but objectively (relative to external people) false.

Reading this, I'm not sure that the writer really knows what a hallucination is. Like Sands quoted, he says

being in a daydream state means you are continuously hallucinating

And I'll quote this too:

while you are in the daydream state, you can visualize anything you want, and that visualization is also a hallucination by definition.


Both of these seem to give the impression that hallucination is just visualisation when you're ignoring your real senses. That is wrong. Hallucination is perceiving non-real things as real on top of your real senses.

What's odd about this is that he gives a correct definition of hallucination as well:

Hallucinations are sensations that exist in your mind which get mixed up with real ones. An image or a sound gets created in your mind, and then you perceive that image or sound the same way that you would as if there was something outside of your mind which would be the source of that sensation.

But I think the source of the conflict is here:

These sensations can get mixed up with real ones in any normal person, and being in a daydream state entails them even taking the place of the real ones entirely.

He seems to confuse 'perceiving senses as real' with 'senses replacing real senses'. Of course, hallucination is the first and daydreaming is the second; if you hallucinate an image you perceive it as if it were real in front of you, but if you daydream about it you visualise it while ignoring your real senses.


I'll back this up additionally, with this

All the while, as you are entering and exiting this daydream state, you are actually manufacturing artificial memories. Depending on how well you do it, you might feel like you can't perceive anything at all of your hallucination in a particular moment, but then you may remember your visualization clear as day from only seconds before. The better you do it, the closer in time and the more realistic your artificial memories become, until you get to a point where you can turn and look at your hallucinated tulpa, then when you look away you instantly remember having seen it there, clear as day.

From my experiences and the experiences of others, this effect happens with normal visualisation that is not hallucination. I'd guess that it's to do with how you remember imaginary things; that is, you remember imaginary sensations as 'real', although you know semantically that they weren't. So the fact that his method has taken him from not doing this to doing this seems to indicate to me that he's actually gone from not visualising open-eye to visualising open-eye.



While I'm making an inference here, I think it's reasonably supported. Frankly, the fact that this is a method not seen elsewhere makes me less willing to approve it, since it just makes it less likely that someone else has done it and got actual hallucinations.


I think it's plain wrong and confusing to say that daydreaming is hallucinating, and I might be minded to disapprove just for that being scattered throughout the guide. But I'm not at all confident, given my above reasoning, that this is even an imposition guide at all. So unless someone can convince me otherwise, I'm going to disapprove and recommend that everyone else evaluate my arguments and revisit their votes with them in mind.



I realise there's an alternate explanation for the weird stuff above, and that's that he really did hallucinate every time he daydreamed. But since that's not normal, and he neither states that prerequisite nor explains how to get there, it still makes for a useless guide, so still disapproved.

I guess you can take mine as a disapproval, after we did a lot of talking about this guide, I think we came to the conclusion that it doesn't really explain how to get to this daydreaming state properly enough. It talks of normal daydreaming, but that's far from hallucinations and otherwise for many of us normal people, it's not as good as the author suggests it is. After a little bit of digging, the author apparently didn't start with such super daydreaming skills and actually practiced, so they could definitely write how they did it in the guide to make it truly helpful. Right now it seems like it assumes we have a skill we don't have and goes from there.


Pity, because I think this guide has potential and some people seem to know what he's talking about, so seems like a valid way of at least helping your imposition, if nothing else. But I think it's missing one of the key steps. Still could be very helpful for those who do know how to get into this special daydreaming state already.

Yeah, plausible points there, Sands.

And seeing how the other two members (excluding Averian) didn't make a confirmation before the end of the deadline, this will be unstickied. Of course, if OP ever shows up, we can always review it again if the suggestions stated could be implemented in some way.

      I whined that we needed an imposition guide so I decided to experiment with my own methods in order to make one for you guys. I did not have to experiment for long as my first method was very successful.
      Basically this leash method is similar to FAQman's method of imagining your Tulpa behind you and eventually mastering that and over time you become good enough to imagine it in your central vision and then it becomes real.
      This method is just like that. But wait! There's more!
      A leash; basically imagine a leash/chain/rope/any other form of physical attachment or linkage and tie one end to yourself (waist or wrist reccommended) and the other end to your Tulpa.
      Now because you are now attached to eachother, you cannot escape eachother as easy. When you walk around you are able to feel the 'tug' of the leash as you pull your Tulpa around. This is very helpful.
      This method is also great because I noticed that whenever i 'forgot' my Tulpa and she was drifting away from my mind, she is able to tug on the rope, catching my attention and making me remember her again.
      Because she is able to simply tug a rope and remind me that she was behind her or wanted attention; this has greatly benefitted my progress. I can now imagine her nearly all the time and I have seen her in the corner of my eyes 3 times. All in a space of nearly a week.
      -Draw a chainlink or some other symbol on your hand to keep reminding yourself of the chain, this seems to give bursts of clarity in visualising her behind me
      -Don't forget to pull the chain yourself if you feel they are drifting away or you are losing them.
      Warnings and reccomendations:
      -This leash is kind of oppressive to some or maybe offensive so make sure you Tulpa is okay with it
      -Make sure you and your Tulpa have the ability to remove the leash. You do not want to develop an unfree Tulpa
      -Make sure to take breaks from this method as the Tulpa will most likely want some alone time from this.
      -Make sure your Tulpa is sentient enough to change the length of the rope at will so they are a little more free.
      I did this method well into sentience (she can speak and move perfectly) and got fantastic results as my Tulpa can now gain my attention in the real world at any moment she wants, all she needs to do is make a small bit of pressure around my wrist simulating the tug of a rope, (she even claims its simple and makes her life alot easier, she says without it, it was very frustrating) I do not know what will happen or if it would work if you did this at an earlier stage.

      Yo, guys. Sparky here to share something I found while researching imposition. Whether or not this has been seen or discussed before, long forgotten in a thread in the catacombs beneath our forum is unknown to me.
      But it's not mine, so I'll post it here first and, if it's deemed better posted elsewhere, that's fine too.

      I made this time a while ago while trying to make a guide for people on touch imposition from what I have done in the past when I was learning to do it few years ago (before the tulpa community). I'm not sure how good it is, but I thought it would be worth posting anyway.
      Note: It often helps to believe that what you are imagining is really there. Closing your eyes and thus not knowing if it is there or not can help as well.
      1. Basic principle of this method
      2a-4b. How to start doing controlled hallucination of touch
      5. How to continue getting better at this
      1) The basic principle behind this method is recreating the perception created by one of the senses, in this case caused by touch, of something you have experienced already.
      2a) An easy way to start is by recreating a small focused (on a small area) feeling that you can control to some degree (caused by you or someone who wants to help you). For example you could start by doing a circle by going with one of your fingers over your palm of your other hand and then stop and recreate the feeling. When you can do that well enough, then try making a spiral or another more complicated object.
      2b) After you get that down well enough, stop recreating a stimulus and instead start feeling (without actually using your finger to do it or feeling it beforehand) new shapes, that you haven't tried yet, or just seemingly random movements. You can try making anything you want, but it should be something that you haven't caused yourself to feel yet.
      3a) Now, recreate more than one small focused feeling at once. For example you could use more than one finger at a time. Start with two fingers and trying to reproduce the feeling, and move up to using all of your fingers.
      3b) Let's stop recreating feelings again and instead start creating multiple small focused feelings created by something that you have used in 4a), but in a way that you haven't felt before.
      4a) When you are able to do those well enough, then you should move onto recreating a feeling that focuses on a bigger area. For example you could put one of your hands over the other hand in any position you would like and try to feel it as much as you can and try to remember that feeling as well as you can. After that stop feeling that feeling and try to recreate it. In the case of using your limbs, I would recommend placing them apart from each other and in a way that they aren't touching any part of your body and then try to recreate the feeling that you got first on only one hand and then on both hands.
      4b) Now, stop recreating those feelings and start creating it in a way you haven't felt before.
      5) Continue this general set of steps (in Xa and Xb) and do them with more and more complicated feelings. You can of course try creating feelings that you have never felt before and aren't possible to feel in physical world like having wings, being out of slime, having animal ears, tail, paws, etc.

      So I've been reading imposition guides and I was wondering if basically all you do is "paste your tulpa over reality, and how long does this take? Also can my tulpa make me hallucinate things other than her form?
    • By Baldy
      Hello, I haven't seen it anywhere, maybe my searching skills aren't so great, or maybe I keep missing what's in front of me.
      To make a long story medium-length, I'm having trouble deciding on a form for my tulpa, she's alright with either or, but I don't want to touch her in one form, feeling fur where skin should be, or go to grab her hand and feel a hoof, that would be very uncomfortable and confusing, my question is, would it be possible to impose the feeling of touch/feeling certain things for specific forms, (IE: Skin for human, and fur for pony) I apologize if this question's been answered or my search skills were just poor.
      I've heard very little on this specific topic, I feel, and before I decide on a form for life, I really need to sit and think about, unless I'm worrying my head over absolutely nothing, and I can impose both forms and I don't have to make a life-changing decision it just depends on me imposing even more/longer, not that the latter matters to me, I'm very anal-retentive about these things and like to make absolutely sure.
      Thank you!
