Science wishes to know the facts. Here is a gun. He still has several steps to make. We will see that his technique is almost identical with that of the stage hypnotist, that the underlying psychology is the same and the results much more effective. He observes these individuals who are continually in difficulty when he challenges the group or who are too relaxed to even make an effort. Your body is floating away and you can no longer control your muscles.

You are falling back into my arms. They seem just as surprised as the operator, but undoubtedly there is some very good reason for this state of affairs. The truth of yesterday may be false today. One must have more than a mere passing interest in the subject if he is to settle down and really master hypnotism.

The operator is getting his first control over the unconscious and this control we can see progressing in definite steps. You must keep repeating that sentence. Nor has hypnotism anything to do with the sex of the subject. In actual practice it is much better to deal with highly intelligent individuals. The writer was demonstrating hypnotism before a group of medical students. And, of course, operators may vary the order of the tests and use different muscle groups. Actually there can be many a curious twist which will deceive even a trained hypnotist.

Throughout the entire seance we keep stressing the idea, “You will not wake up until you are told. The experienced operator can easily pick the good subjects with such a technique, and have the whole thing over in ten minutes. The writer prepared one of the first of these records with the assistance of the Victor people and it is now marketed through the Marietta Apparatus Company.

Or he may meet the challenge quite successfully, relax his arm and open his eyes. In actual practice it is much better to deal with highly intelligent individuals. You are losing your balance and are falling backward. Let us suppose that the subject has arrived at somnambulism and the hypnotist wishes to end the seance. You may try but you cannot.

Moreover, the apparatus used can vary indefinitely. Then we ask him to close his eyes, suggest to him that he is falling backward and get an accurate measurement of just how far he does sway. Some people are so extremely susceptible to hypnotism that at times we get curious results even when using a victrola record. You are a board standing on end and you are falling back.

Then he stiffens out the arms of the entire group and dares them to relax the arm muscles. We further explain that, of course, the deepest form of relaxation is sleep, and that if the subject can fall asleep it will show that he has perfect control over his nervous system.


At times we can enter into conversation with him. So far as the writer can see, it g.a.estabrioks very little difference if we start with the eyes open or closed.

One, for example, simply aims at transforming natural sleep into the hypnotic variety. How these facts will be used is a question which he is not called on to answer. G.a.estabroo,s he is dealing with a good subject the hands will be stuck together and it will be impossible for him to take them apart. This site uses cookies. The following case is a good example. We know of no tests which will foretell with any degree of accuracy which individuals will develop into really good subjects.

The reader will have noted that when the operator changes normal sleep into the hypnotic trance, the subject has nothing to say in the matter. The person g.a.eetabrooks walks in his sleep, the “natural” somnambulist, will almost always go into “artificial” somnambulism or deep hypnosis. He has the subject stand erect with his feet close together and proceeds somewhat as follows: There are many of these in whom it is easy to induce eye-closure, but quite impossible to get any tests which indicate a deeper stage of hypnotism.

You are sound asleep, walking in your sleep. If that public uses the aeroplane to drop bombs, rather than to carry passengers, the scientist is in no way to blame.
