Active and passive forcing -- which one is better? Which one will help you to create a tulpa faster? Is it possible to create tulpa only by passive forcing? In this post I will discuss the mind theory behind the forcing, explain how it's similar and different to the Buddhist techniques and give practical advice. When tulpamancers are asked about forcing, they usually say that active forcing is when you actively hang out with your tulpa, in the wonderland or otherwise; while passive forcing is when you keep thinking of your tulpa when you're busy with something else[^cf1]. Furthermore, active forcing is often visuals-oriented -- described as a process of sitting down, closing your eyes and imagining the form of your tulpa, their voice or their interactions.
