  1. Anthromorphs or Transformation in VR

    I think there will at least initially be a market of people interested in immersive first-person VR novelty. Beyond that, of niche interest perhaps. I'd imagine we'll see this repeated often when someone makes a werewolf OR/VR game.
  2. first post. ;)

      First of many! =P

      Question! As I mentioned in my introductory doohickey, what files would you recommend trying on esuccubus?

  3. Help with imagination

    All I can say is keep practicing and trying different exercises. This isn't virtual reality, more like being swathed in a dreamcloak, I think.
  4. What is a tulpa? [CURIOSITY]

    Maybe I shouldn't have stirred the pot in retrospect. Actually, I find this discussion useful. Khazix and Kanibal raise reasonable concerns; I can't really fault caution here, and can appreciate the delicate needle-threading they're doing on this, and why. And as I understand it, there are some cautionary tales out there (anecdotally, anyway) to support their points. I should still pick accursedCursive's mind in PM sometime...
  5. What is a tulpa? [CURIOSITY]

    I saw this yesterday. So I guess tulpaforcing is a 'subculture,' now, I had no idea. Discussion point: have bronies misappropriated the practice? Is it healthy or even ethical to tulpaforce or develop thoughtforms for purposes of entertainment, distraction, comfort, or self-reorganization? I have no idea how seriously to take any of this, but it's interesting. Anyway, vice.com article on (mostly brony) "tulpamancy": http://www.vice.com/read/tulpamancy-internet-subculture-892
  6. What is a tulpa? [CURIOSITY]

    Tulpaforcing should be seen as a mental discipline, a higher construct or practice, like trance, that is not inherantly good or bad, or at worst, ambivalent. The sense I hold today is that the tradition originated in buddist spiritual practice. Looking at it from a contemporary western perspective, yes, perhaps a valid spiritual description of schizophrenia would be a mind that has become a terrain for semi-feral thoughtforms or tulpae, or at least, none in charge. Taken to some extreme, our identity or self is just an incumbant and well-established spirit, one that can share or even lose control of the physical self... I know this is getting... 'meta.' I think, as others have suggested, there can be a role for the practice, as a familiar, as a mental discipline 'assistant' and co-conspirator. Alternately, the practice could be thought of as a way of extending consciousness processes without cluttering the immediate mind. I don't think it's something that folks new to hypnosis are likely to benefit from studying early on-- it's probably more for folks who are experienced trancers and are either very self-aware or on a journey of self-discovery. I do think approaching it naively or with a spiritually shallow goal is probably asking for trouble, but I hate to see the practice arbitrarily dismissed as hazardous by default...
  7. Fortunately - Unfortunately

    Fortunately, their agent abruptly called, advising them the record label hard filed for bankrupcy and ceased operating. Nobody would be paid, the deal was off.

  9. An Itch In Trance

    Falling asleep could also just be a sign that you need to take a break, or should try earlier in the day when you're less drowsy. Other ideas would be maybe trying to be sure your sessions coincide with an empty stomach? Sometimes I 'fall asleep' during the induction. Strangely, I almost always 'wake up' during the end inverse-induction, exactly as suggested by the narrator. I figure those ones maybe still got a swipe at the subconscious, or I should have just kept on sleeping?

    I'm a mixed-up critter, but my forum desc and my avatar pic are definitely even more confused. XD
  11. What If?

    Kind of an old thread, but there's a lot of room for discussion left. Some storytellers have made a run at the scenario you describe, in terms of speculative fiction as to how the world and society would be altered, once settling in to some new order. I'd imagine it'd be terribly traumatic and many would probably never adjust. The Winds of Change story universe comes to mind-- http://www.furry.de/tsa/worlds/woc/index.html I think stepping back in the wider world of literature, 'alternate reality' stories can be on this terrain.

    And my, er... *looks down at empty winghands* my, er, *looks around the room for anything, nope* my, er, beak!
  13. Last To Post Wins 4 (2 Outside Japan)

    That sounds really interesting, an ancient brewing tradition. Pine needles and sloeberry! The final result exceeds my imagination, I'll try to keep my eyes open for it next time I'm in the exotic beer room of a local alcohol superstore. Cellar temperatures for real beers, eh? *looks guility up at haijacked forum thread*

    Hoppy beer. Acquired taste, but oh-so-delicious.
  15. Species?

    My profile pic is misleading, I identify more as a lagomorph.
