The lids are locked tightly together. Deeper and deeper, deeper and deeper. Here, again, the point is largely imaginary, and the reader is asked to reserve judgment until we discuss such questions.
That is his problem. This leaves us with no means at all of judging the susceptibility of the average adult. The techniques we have described can be mastered by anyone, just as anyone can learn to run an automobile. We simply say it is possible for anyone to learn and stress this point because of popular notions of will power, the dark hypnotic eye, black magic, and other weird ideas. These he notes as future good subjects and dismisses the group when he wishes.
A very neat example of how little “will power,” passes, and hypnotic eyes have to do with the trance. We begin by requesting the subject to clasp his hands firmly together, and to imagine as vividly as possible that they are locked together, that he cannot take them apart. The following is fairly typical of the technique employed by the stage performer.
Many of the older hypnotists, writing around were quite definite in their assertions that no one could be hypnotized against his will.
Make an effort and put some muscle into those fingers. They knew very little about hypnotism but had heard that this marvelous gadget, just on the market, would actually hypnotize.
The subject is still wide “awake” in the sense that his conscious mind hears everything and remembers everything afterward.
Where L Ron Hubbard got the idea for the fraud called Dianetics – Estabrooks – HYPNOTISM (c)
The writer g.x.estabrooks contend that hypnotism can be used for criminal ends, but such use would demand an operator of the highest skill. Your jaws are stiff and locked in place. But when he dismissed the group, his demonstration subject remained seated, with his eyes wide open but unable to move.
I am talking to you and you will answer in your sleep. Moreover, our police are quite familiar with everything written in this hypnlsis and could detect a crime involving hypnotism quite as readily as any other.
Estabrooks – Hypnotism – 2
Scientific research gives no basis whatsoever for such an idea. You are falling back, back, back. You are commenting using your Facebook account. You are sound, sound asleep and will not awaken until I tell you. Hypnotism is notoriously time consuming and any device which could meet this objection might make it far more acceptable to the average medical man.
The answer is unfortunately all too definite. At this point it would be well to mention the “disguised” technique.
If he tells us there is a black dog standing by our chair, we will see the animal clearly and pet it. You cannot take your hands apart no matter how hard you may try. When we are in the normal waking condition, the conscious mind is run ning the body. They are rotating faster and faster, faster and faster. If they numbered one or two of these professionals among their friends, they would not fall into some very common errors as to theory.
However, there are certain places in which hypnotism might be used where it would have to be employed without the consent of the hypnotized.
So the first concept we get of hypnotism is that curious picture of an unconscious mind controlled by the conscious mind of the operator. To be sure, the facts he unearths may be unpleasant. Just imagine that you are a board standing on end. I will catch you. We can use some of the simplest tests of hypnosis as indicators. The hypnotist gives his subject no time to recover his poise, but returns to the attack at once. How does he do it?
You are falling backward into my arms. It is this sort of thing which has given hypnotism such a bad name with the average American, who always feels that somehow it is linked with sleight of hand and “magic” in general.
It cannot be done h.a.estabrooks least in the present stage of our work. The person who walks in his sleep, the “natural” somnambulist, will almost always go into “artificial” somnambulism or deep hypnosis.
