Awesome! I'm going to start trying this when I have the chance to do so and report short-term and long-term results later. I remember hearing of this before.
Is a 12" screen good enough?
I think there's barely such a case as insta-tulpas, it's a rare when that sort of thing happens. If that truly happens good for you.
But tulpas are friends, not trophies with a made up story to impress people.

Sounds fun. I've not messed with an audio-visual one before. They were mostly all strictly audio. Will give it a try once I can get a pair of headphones.

Dude I tried it last night and it was amazing.
It's like all the garbage of my mind subsided and suddenly I could concentrate on everything happening, my mind didn't drift near as much as normal.
Visualization was impeccable.
And the effect lasted a good long time, I was going to sleep 45 minutes later and solved world hunger while the effect was still lasting.
10/10

Edit: I used the Alpha Constant.

I love how you hype the hell out of it in your signature. I lost it at "eyeball fat." "Combine with Raspberry ketones for optimum effect."

Seriously, more on topic though. I plan on downloading these soon and then putting them to use. I'll have some privacy coming up and will be able to grab a pair of headphones for full effect. I'll have to do a bit more reading though before picking a particular frequency.

Also, I like that you put that bit for Delta you wrote about dimming the light and lowering the volume. Goes well with the concept of circadian rhythm. Might help to do this just as it starts to get dark outside as well, as it might help instill a proper circadian alignment, especially if they aren't often outside during the day during it's brightest hours, or spending their nights in very bright rooms.

I plan on trying with either Delta or Theta at first. As for descending, ascending or constant variations, I'm not sure yet. Delta will likely be a test to see if it can help aid in sleep (which is what I was searching for when I originally found BWE tones in the first place), which I have been suffering from for many, many years now.

My host did Descending Theta. I like it.

Lost, you might wanna go with the Theta pace if you want to be more energised.
Theta was the main plan to begin with. I just wanted to see if the other would result in improved sleep.

I've been using it every night for a couple of weeks now, and as a result, my dreams have become more vivid and I've been more fresh despite sleeping less than I should.
This is something I'd like to avoid, actually.

I had a whole bunch of crazy stuff happen this very night, with me and the political companion shooting players in a snowy Podagorsk, me trying to get in bed with the foreign advisor from Civilization 5 by falling asleep while playing the game (yeah), me trying to survive the invasion of Normandy in the second world war on the Americans' side, and a series of related dreams where Rapunzel from Tangled was endowed with some imaginative force from a tree by enchanting with her hair inside it, putting her in an interpretation of reality subject to her aesthetic will, which made her super happy and things until she after a while forgot the fact that her reality was only so real, until some cleric dude told her that new situations in life offer new opportunities and that she could still do people good, making her happy again as she found new purpose in her life. And a whole bunch of other crazy things. This is totally my thread; it is my full right to go off-topic about dreams induced by Eye-Bo. Did I mention it's free?
That sounds like fun. Vivid dreams are a blast.

To me, it didn't feel much different. The only way I can describe it is I felt "warmer", though it's not related to heat in any way. It was easier to communicate with my host, though. I'm not sure about it actually inducing any specific brainwaves, but he said the flashes and isochronic tones helped him disconnect from his senses better, which allowed for more visualization than usual. Also, he was more prone to hallucinations afterwards, sometimes hearing whispers which were not mine.

The most notable thing was when he did hear my voice in a hallucinatory fashion, or maybe like hypnagogia. I didn't have to do anything different from the usual, but I did feel much more at ease for whatever reason. I suppose this is supposed to affect hosts more than tulpas?

I suppose he should've said so himself but I figured the effects the tulpa experienced might also be a good perspective to hear from. We'll keep doing it, and if we notice any other effects I'll make sure to post about it.

So, results from one session of Ascending Theta.

As per habit of approaching these things, I took my temperature both before and after. My before was around 98.7, and the after was around 97.9 and 98.0. Interesting.

Three times during this, I believe I heard what sounded like laughter. And not "Ha-ha funny" laughter, it sounded more condescending. Twice I heard that laughter in what sounded like people's voices (that I know). The third was short and quickly dissipated. I am unsure if these were day-dream like, or hallucinations. Could have been merely the sounds that were in the headphones reminding me of laughter (or a manly zipper being pulled up and down a jacket really fast). I could have been projecting as well.

Towards the end of session, I began to feel very tired. I am wondering if this is what is contributing to the lowered temperature.

Overall, this was a mildly unpleasant experience.

I guess I'll just reply to that. The session itself was nice, the descending version really helped me go from a more alert state to a relaxed one(as opposed to ascending and constant, which i've also tried) and throughout the session i felt myself zoning out quite a bit, i even got one vivid hallucination of someone opening my door and walking into my room, but i'm so not used to visualizing that i physically got up to react to that at the time. Which was kinda lame, but it happened.

Anyhow, hearing her was easier, yes. Mindvoice sounded clearer, not only hers but also my own, the repetitive sounds and flashing turned into somewhat of a blur for me after a while, up to the point where i wasn't "hearing" the isochronics anymore (more like ignoring them) and my eyes looked like a canvas of white as opposed to strobe flashing. That's what she meant with the "disconnecting from the senses". After I got into that state i got a few second of visualization every 5-10 minutes or so, which is better than average for me.

Hallucinations didn't kick in until after the session. I listened to the entire tape, and afterwards my room looked really fuzzy, and my windows seemed to "wobble" (can't find a better word for this) which was like a visual variant of the metallic way everything sounded after listening to Clairvoyant Focus. Then I lied down and was still talking to Ea, and sometimes in between the mindvoice conversations I'd hear whispers beside me not saying anything I could really understand. But mind you, it was also raining softly. At some point they did get pretty loud though, it sorta freaked me out at first but Ea reminded me it was probably just to Eye-Bo and I cooled off.

After some more talking, I was pretty relaxed and at one point I could clearly hear one of Ea's sentences "out loud", which also immediately shocked me awake, and after that it was just back to mindvoice and nothing else happened.

Oh, last thing, sometimes during Eye-Bo I'd open my eyes due to unexpectedly visualizing, and i'd see a shadow of someone standing beside me for a split second.

Hope this means something for you, seriously great work man. I haven't had results this fast from any other entrainment tape so far.

Oh, my bad. Must've missed it. Yes, I was sitting down. When I lie down I'm afraid I'll fall asleep with the laptop on my lap, and drop it in my sleep-kungfu.

Sorry to hear that your session was unpleasant, Lost, but at least you hallucinated. Which makes me happy. I'm evil like that. I can assure you that there is no subliminal laughing in Eye-Bo.
I'll try it a bit more later. I'll try a bit harder to possibly remove confounding factors from it the next time.

Well, it wasn't necessarily subliminal laughing so much as the actual pulses reminded me of a laugh.

If you could somehow manage to create a setup where you can still see the flashes while lying down, you can try doing that hypnagogic visualisation technique where you consciously tell yourself that you're awake until the hallucinative vividness becomes less chaotic and more controllable. I mean, if you feel like experimenting, anyway. Experimenting is usually fun.

Experimenting is always good, I guess I could always give it a shot. I'm still in a stage where i'm getting used to visualizations though, they always surprise me by how vivid and yet unrealistic they are. Should've daydreamed more as a kid.

That wasn't me. My host can't deal with subaccounts. It's also not my form in the picture, just a picture I like.

You can easily change who posted it by modifying the post, you can change the subaccount there.
