Forcing is a term that refers to the act of giving a tulpa attention or stimuli so that they may grow. Generally used in reference to a tulpamancer forcing a tulpa, a tulpa may at times force a tulpamancer to improve them. The term was created with the idea that you are forcing a tulpa into existence, rather than forcing them to be a certain way.
