So, you created your first world and it’s gotten to the point where it’s pretty much doing it’s own thing. But, you’ve had another idea for something else you’d like to explore right? So why stop with one world? Why not more? This is the point where I show you how well the concept mode scales in comparison to manual creation or exploration.
But, first off, we’re going to have to create a framework for your worlds. Because at the end of the day, you want your worlds to be unique, vibrant and most of all true to themselves. If you mash all your worlds together in one contiguous landscape, they’ll start to influence each other and soon enough it’ll all just become a big soup of weird stuff. So, I introduce to you the concept of a gallery of worlds if you will. An infinite hallway with doors on either side that each lead to the various worlds that you’ll be creating. As you enter the hallway, the door behind you leads back to your first created world, it’s behind you when you close it. Now, don’t turn around just yet, but simply decide that your door will be have a sign detailing what world it leads to and turn around. Easy isn’t it?
If you want to be fancy, you can simply furnish the door to have a special shape or a theme that reflects your worlds, that way it becomes really easy to find them all when you’re bumbling around in the gallery. Also, it helps to make all the non connected doors appear completely mundane.
OK, so it’s time to make your second world by using a concept to start off your subconscious creative process. This is where you have to work for it a bit since you’re going to need a concept of what your world is going to be like. So, start by simply assembling a collage of things that remind you of this world of yours. Does a song invoke that emotion? A picture? A certain turn of phrase? Any art is welcome here. Cobble together something and soon enough you’ll have an idea of a place in that world you’d want to visit. Think about this part as a concept, really try and visualize this starting area as well as you can. Then go up to one of your unused doors in the gallery and grasp the handle and think to yourself where this door could lead to in that concept of yours.
Then open it and step inside of your new world.. after that, you just explore and see what’s beyond your starting area and your mind will figuratively do the heavy lifting for you. “But wait Fairy” I hear some of you object “Didn’t you say that these worlds needed to be separate? What if someone walks through this door and into my beautiful gallery? I can’t have pirates invading my ninja world, that’s bad isn’t it?”
Indeed it is. And this is where the management part comes in. See, you’re going to decide right now that these doors only work for you (and for your tulpas if you have them) and that nobody else can actually see or even interact with these doors. That way, you keep your worlds separate and you cut down on the headaches.
And that’s how you manage your worlds on a macro scale. Now, here’s where it gets interesting, because this is what I like to call the management paradox: The more you consciously try to influence a world, the more “you” it becomes and the less of itself it remains. Since your subconscious is there filling in all the blanks and since that bastard is a lazy one, it’ll sit right down in it’s metaphorical ass the second you start to decide things for yourself. So, if you ask me, I’d recommend that you let the worlds do as they will and see how deep the proverbial rabbit hole goes.
But as always.. I have an ace up my sleeve when it comes to that.

So don’t wait until the cows come home, make a bargain today and pick up your package for the low low price of free. Operators are standing by!
Now, while the above ad is decidedly cheeky, the Argos is an important tool if you want to avoid the management paradox where the more you directly mess with your worlds, the less natural they become. Instead of directly intervening with our worlds, I tend to issue administrator commands to our omnipresent AI Satellite that I named Sarah. She in turn acts as a sort of buffer between me and the worlds, working as an abstraction filter. That way, the worlds get changed in a more organic manner because I won’t bother with the smaller details, I leave that to the AI, which again is just another concept that uses my subconscious to do my bidding.
However, I generally am a lazy person when it comes to administration, so I usually only tend to pull out the administrator card when shit hits the fan or when something big needs changing.
