Anonymous asked: Do you have any advice or tips on how to create or visualize a wonderland?
A wonderland is really nothing but a fairly detailed imagined location that you assume will continue to exist even when you aren’t actively imagining it. Some wonderlands are very realistic and may even be based on real-life places. Others are entirely surreal, abstract places. Some are stable, others change on their own. You could even make a sentient wonderland that is basically a tulpa. Really, anything you can imagine can be a wonderland.
If you have a “happy place” you imagine when you’re someplace you don’t want to be, you just about have a wonderland already. Just add the assumption that it will continue to run when you aren’t there, maybe work on the detail level a bit, and you’ve got it.
When I talk about detail level, I don’t just mean how clear you can visualize. Even with clear visualization, you can have undefined objects. If I tell you to visualize a person, you will likely end up with something with something undefined. It has the overall shape of a person, but few details are present. This may appear as blurry, interfere with your ability to visualize it as clearly as you normally can, or even appear as zillions of different ways it could be, stacked up. As you fill in the details, either by consciously deciding them or looking at a part and letting it fill itself in, the object becomes clearer and better defined. Adding details to your wonderland this way will make it easier to see and more pleasant to live in, for both you and your tulpa.
If you’re having issues visualizing at all, I wrote a guide on this. If that doesn’t help, tell me the problem you’re having in more detail.
