  1. Genetic TF is gathering pace here - we now have more than one programmer on the team! (we need about 20 to write the software)
  2. I actually quit hypnosis after 3 years of it because I was scared of succeeding. That fear held me back from properly visualising the effects, because I was worried that if I allowed myself to believe fully that I had already become an anthro red fox, I would lose the drive to do the job properly (through genetics). Which I am working on now and will be for years yet. So yeah I guess that isn't the answer you are looking for, but it was because I had seen the potency of the hypnosis files on those who did allow them to work fully, that I felt that way. I should point out that the files will do what you honestly expect and want them to do on a subconscious level. If you expect them to cause random TFs at the worst possible moments, i.e. because you are anxious, then that will be what they do. If you expect a permanent, always-on TF, you will get that - but you have to believe and hold on to the way you want it to be as a fact of your innermost self.
  3. ^this. You can believe in magic but with a healthy dose of scientific consideration - that none of the 'spells' you've heard of count as real things that actually happened until you see actual proof and are able to share that proof with us and anyone else who asks and has the ability to critically review it. Empiricism stands between magical thinking and commonly defined sanity.
  4. Oh yeah, we have new people here too XD The description is right there if you follow the Lulu link but I'll go copy-paste it, hang on... "Great people go out and happen to the world, they say. When you have finally discovered something to dedicate your life to, a concept so multi-faceted as Freedom Of Form, and when said concept just happens to conveniently fit with your obsession with anthropomorphic animals, it helps to be just a little bit more organised and to think things through... Steven Dhai starts off by changing the course of evolution forever. But that's the least of his worries. Mature warning: contains drug gang violence (mild to medium), references to very nasty prior-to-story events involving sexual assault (but no direct descriptions of them), several other gritty things, strong language." Here's the blurb from my DeviantArt page (DSDFox): "Great people go out and happen to the world, they say. When you have finally discovered something to dedicate your life to, a concept so multi-faceted as Freedom Of Form, and when said concept just happens to conveniently fit with your obsession with anthropomorphic animals, it helps to be just a little bit more organised and to think things through... Steven Dhai starts off by changing the course of evolution forever. But that's the least of his worries. (I have now edited this story in line with suggestions made by a non-furry proof reader - as a result, it should make a little bit more sense) It's 187,548 words long. The first of a planned trilogy. Are you ready? Grab your modified trousers and digitigrade shoes and get in the Furmobile. You're in for something quite unlike any story you have ever read before. Disclaimer: that's not to say it's any good. You decide that. Mature warning: contains drug gang violence (mild to medium), references to very nasty prior-to-story events involving sexual assault (but no direct descriptions of them), several other gritty things, strong language. And if you see a McEgbert's lorry, don't forget to give it plenty of room and a friendly wave "
  5. I'm pretty sure I had a thread about this way back. Some of you may remember An Atom of Freedom, which I finished writing and published on Lulu.com in 2012: https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?contributorId=1108140 Yep, it's still there, feel free to buy it or to ask me nicely for a PDF if you really can't afford to. Anyway, those of you who would like me to continue writing more of this saga, please consider contributing to my living expenses via Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/danfoxdavies
  6. So you're a therian
  7. http://aminoapps.com/p/l8k1jd Kyon is offering commissions at the moment, and says he's keen to try doing TF art. :-)
  8. I thought I'd pop this thread here to suggest the broadening of musical horizons via listening to a wider variety of musical instrument types. Here are some instruments that have interested me lately that you won't find in an average orchestra: The Hurdy Gurdy - look up anything by Guilhem Desq (on his solo career) or Arcane Alchemists (the band). The Zither - beautifully demonstrated in the film, 'Safety Not Guaranteed', alas the Youtube videos I have found of it so far are not a patch on either the performance in that film or the one I was lucky enough to attend at the Bournemouth Arts Festival. The Harmonium - if you take the New Adventures as canon (you should), The Doctor (Doctor Who) has played one at some stage. Interesting in its own way and popular in India. Floppy Disk Drives - See Youtube for the marvellous music of the stepper motors and sprung diskette casings. Dot Matrix Printers - Similar to above, but capable of printing some sort of pattern out at the same time. Louder and a distinct sound. Synthesia Black Music - Yo dawg, I heard you like musical notes. So I put notes in your notes so you can noise while you noise and oh god how does this still sound like music? (Youtube it) EDIT: Finally, some of you probably already know of this one, but it's always worth mentioning that a theramin was never eerie enough for Jean Michel Jarre, so he invented the Laser Harp. Building one yourself requires a computer case, power supply, powerful laser, mirrors, a smoke machine and asbestos gloves as well as careful aim and venue choices.
  9. Pro tip: don't expect a fursona chosen for sexual reasons to stick, as it is unlikely to be truly representative. I found this out after several months of lurking, and was told in summer 2008 that a horse fursona didn't suit me and I seemed more like a fox. It simply clicked and I have been an anthro red fox type ever since. It feels so integral to who I am now that it is hard to say if 'furry' or 'otherkin' is the more appropriate term for me. Maybe a little bit of each. I do not see my fursona choice changing any time soon. It should be noted that although I found foxes interesting and having a certain allure, as it were, it was not until 2008 that I considered myself in any way linked on that sort of level to being one. Yet looking back, there are aspects of my childhood that can be interpreted as being indicators of a furry self within. I think, however, that that is a retroactive filter placed on my memories by the strength of my current self-identity, and it is more accurate to say that either I chose to be a fox, or perhaps more romantically, it chose me, in 2008.
  10. When using a forum, it is generally considered good practise to post your questions in threads relevant to their topic. You may now need an admin or moderator to move your post to a tech questions section, where it is more likely to be seen by those who can answer it. And for the record, I haven't got much Android experience after version 4.1.
  11. Memory erasure as well as trickery into transformative hypnosis sounds like a recipe for deep psychological trauma to me. You're only going to cause long term repression to come flooding back painfully to the subject at some later date, probably after or even because they messed up their life for reasons related to either the transformation itself or reasons for it. Ergo, don't.
  12. Apologies for the very late reply, I have a pile of silly excuses and should still have checked this thread sooner. I will PM you some more info. Din's right about that. :-) Phantom limb feelings are easier to induce than visual hallucination.
  13. Two words: Open Source.
  14. I still maintain that surgery is a messy and foolhardy option that will (for the patient patient) be superseded by genetic transformation tech. We're still on course, science is advancing in the right direction faster than I even thought it would.
  15. Hence we take a medical approach. Tech that can edit genes and kick-start transformations can also properly (not pharmaceutically) cure cancer. The two use cases require the same capabilities.
