[align=justify]This is daily thread #11


If you've achieved some form of imposition, what's it like? How does it feel to to it? Which of the five senses can you do it with and how well?

All of them, it was great, but it happens randomly with normal visualization and presence imposition. Just like real, but fleeting.

we impose visually, and our mindvoice "comes from the direction of" our imposed forms, and of course we impose our "sense of presence" which is the most important one


I dunno how exactly to explain what it looks like, people use terms like "transparent overlay" and stuff but really it's a brain thing and just doesn't have a perfect existing description. It's a "knowing" of the senses that sort of gets put into the sensory information, like actual light -> your eyes -> brain processes it (+ imposition added here) -> conscious experience of it, I guess, so you still have/see what's really there but you sorta experience both and can easily learn to ignore the blocked information (we easily focus our eyes on the air where the imposed person is despite our very poor visualization clarity)


the "sense of presence" makes up for the lack of information coming from our visualization clarity, like even if we're not technically seeing someone imposed on a particularly bad visuals day we still "know we're seeing them" and "know they're there", plus that's what makes it feel like you're not actually alone in the room or such. I think it comes with practicing imposition-of-tulpas automatically (if you went the weird route of imposing objects first, I dunno if you'd get sense of presence as easily/quickly, maybe)

Hi, I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.

I think being happy and having fun makes life worth living, so spreading happiness is my number one goal!

For us it's mostly sense of presence and location. We also have a bit of touch to the point where I can feel it but not entirely, like their form isn't entirely solid.


We haven't been doing imposition much but we should really get back into it

(as many of us have said a thousand times).



Edit: Forgot about this. Damien used to impose himself in cub form and sit around on my shoulder. Only problem was he was heavy and that shoulder would actually start getting a bit sore.

We can impose all 5 senses and we can impose each sense identical to reality, however in practice it gets a bit more funky.


Our imposition can block out stimulus, however things that are considered high priority still go through, so if something is flying at me, but Miela is in front of it I would still be able to see it, but if there was just a stationary object then I couldn't.


With visual imposition, as long as we are looking at the imposed object it just looks like anything else, but if we looked away so that it was out of our field of view, we would still be able to see it. I don't know how to describe it better than that, it just remains in place despite being out of our view. Also, mirrors don't always work right, they take special effort to make reflections happen, and the reflection doesn't always do what the object it's reflecting does.


Tactile imposition itself works just fine, however since it is used to touch intangible things, I sometimes accedentally reach right through whatever I am trying to touch and it is quite jarring. We've built up a reflex to not apply pressure to imposed objects, but I still beak that every once in a while.


We generally are able to tell that something is imposed because of the aforementioned "glitches", and also because things that we impose aren't things that we would normally see, but I have almost dropped things a few times when trying to hand them to Miela.

I have a tulpa named Miela who I love very much.

I do understand the out of view but still see it thing, that is how wonderland is sometimes, or it's like my FOV is over 180 deg. (even 360 deg) but everything is, not just certain objects because everything is generated.

We can do the five senses except for sight. If I try to do sight imposition, I will get excited to have a blob to morph around.


Our touch imposition isn't the greatest, but that's because it's not perfect either. I can feel weak sensations of me drawing on my hand for instance, but it's not strong enough to match the same action in reality as of now. Weight and pressure are easier than texture since it's a more subtle and easier to miss. It's not enough to reverse pain, but it can be used to suppress pain a little bit, depending on how severe the pain is.


Auditory imposition is something that came fairly naturally to me since I mishear everything all the time. One time I pulled out my phone while playing a videogame and thought it was strange that I couldn't turn the music down, only afterwards realizing I was imposing the videogame music. Unless you have a good memory of how the song goes, it won't feel as real or be dismissed. Scent imposition is pretty similar here since I have a poor sense of smell. Both of these skills are not strong enough to overpower real sound or real smells. Our taste imposition is only a little bit worse than our smell imposition.


The only other thing we can impose is presence, which has had some stunning results. Even though I can't hallucinate Ranger looking right at me, I can feel he's there standing beside me or riding my shoulders. Since my visualization ability has slowly improved over time, Ranger looking more and more realistic in the mind's eye has lead to a stronger sense that he's there.

Not my main form or name really but this nick is my brand now. You may see my headmates call me Gray.

I used to speak in pink and Ranger used to speak in blue (if it's unmarked and colored assume it's Ranger). She loves to chat.

...No imposition here, but sometimes I smell something that's not there. So scent might be a good sense to start with. I actually have a really good sense of smell, and when I smell something that's not there, it smells real as opposed to an imagined sense which is much fainter and over powered by whatever my real senses are experiencing.

      I wrote this guide, to describe the method I came up with to impose my tulpa. It works very well for me. I hope that it can be useful to some of you as well.

      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?
