Title *How to Hypnotize Anyone Without Getting Caught*
2
Your Launch Pad…
For the last eight years, did I ever make dozens of mistakes with
what you’ll be learning in this book? Absolutely. I learned about
a particular technique, went out in the real world, and then tried
it. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.
Finally, I realized that it wasn’t just WHAT I was saying that
compelled others to obey my commands. Rather, it was a
combination of HOW you say WHAT you’re saying. This would
include the way your voice sounds, as well as your body
language when you’re delivering a hypnotic message and when
communicating to others on an unconscious level.
In this book, you’ll find a variety of different exercises and
techniques that not only show you how to “side-step” the
English language – you’re also going to learn how to use your
voice and gestures in the most congruent and hypnotic way so
you don’t make the same mistakes I was making when I first
started in unconscious communication.
I was amazed (as you soon will be) at the amount of power
covert hypnosis has when it’s used with others. Better still, I was
excited when I realized the incredible influencing ability
covert hypnosis brings you. Because; here’s a set of
communication tools where to you, it seems like you’re giving
direct commands for your listeners to obey, and to the listener,
it seems like every day ordinary conversation.
Needless to say, and I’ll probably keep repeating it – use these
techniques honestly, ethically and judiciously. Since you’ll
be communicating on an unconscious level with others, you’ll
also be communicating to your own unconscious mind. So, in
essence, everything you make other people experience in their
own brains, you’ll be experiencing as well. With that said,
always us these techniques to benefit others, period.
You see, there’s a big difference between using your power
WITH someone, and using your power AGAINST a person.
3
Using your power AGAINST someone is using it without
considering how it affects the person.
Using your power WITH someone, is considering how what
you’re using covert hypnosis for is beneficial to either that
person alone, or the both of you. If you can’t answer “yes” to the
question “Is the other person benefiting from my using covert
hypnosis?” than you’re not using it WITH, when you should be.
When I first started using hypnosis, I failed to take in account of
the fact that there are consequences to using hypnosis on
others. Because these techniques can be used to make anyone
practically do anything you want them to – both verbally and in
writing, I tested the limits to see how effective these techniques
are, without thinking about how it affected me as well.
I made people feel bad, and feel good.
I realized that sometimes no matter how bad you want to slam
someone to “put them in their place” using these stealth
devices – you’ll be better off in the long run if you just don’t use
it to make others feel bad. A good rule of thumb is to use these
techniques – only for the sake of helping others benefit, so
remember that.
Also, you’re going to hear this phrase over and over again from
the so called “experts” out there in the real world that you can’t
make people do anything against their will.
I disagree.
When you use hypnotic language patterns (which you’ll be
learning to do), you can melt away resistance, and instill the
desire to chase after the action you’re spelling out for them to
take – oftentimes without them even knowing why they are
taking action.
ANYONE you talk with can be persuaded into performing any
action you want them to. If I wanted a woman to take off her
shirt in front of all my friends (which I have never done and
4
never would do) – but for the sake of understanding my point…
it may take me a few minutes, but I could convince her
conscious mind using hypnosis and get her to think it was a fun,
perfectly natural thing for her to do.
My point is this, even though it may be something that originally
may have been against a person’s will, covert hypnosis can
change all that, and make it seem like the action is perfectly
natural and safe to do -- just by delivering hypnotic commands
to your listener.
So put yourself in the mindset that anyone, (and I really do
mean anyone) can be convinced and persuaded into doing
anything you want them to. And you’ll find as you continue to
read this book from front to back, a variety of ways that you can
do this quickly and easily.
Quick Start:
Like anything new you learn for the first time, you must learn
the basics. Covert hypnosis can be difficult or as easy as you
want it to be. You can forge ahead to the later chapters and
begin using the devices right off the bat -- not considering the
basics and formula of covert hypnosis, or you can learn the
fundamentals of hypnosis and master them.
Therefore, the only real question to ask yourself right now is:
“Would you rather become a master using hypnosis – and
communicating effectively to others to the best of your ability, or
just learn it half hazardless – use it only once and a while, and
only have “subtle” skills of unconscious communication?”
If you would rather be a master at hypnosis, I’m not going to lie
to you – like anything new for the first time, it is going to require
some painful climbing. But to reach to the top of the summit,
you always have to start somewhere. So if you start by only by
jumping ahead to the stealth devices, then be prepared to have
a major challenge ahead of you.
5
However, if you follow through with this e-book, page by page,
you’ll have more power than the person who just passively
reads this material, and you’ll come to realize all the benefits of
following this manual far outweigh just learning the “tricks.” In
other words, practice what you’re learning.
You see, what most people don’t realize is that your voice has
to be projected a certain way, and there is a formula you must
follow to properly lead someone to take action, and jumping
ahead to learn only the “tricks” aren’t going to give you the
same benefits if you were to follow this entire e-book -- page by
page as you master every technique that you learn along the
way.
In short, it’s okay to jump ahead and read about the devices
and even practice them if you want. But at some point you’ll
want to sit down with this e-book, this time – ready to follow
each exercise given, and prepare yourself to have the most
incredible power over others than you’re even able to
comprehend right now.
Hypnosis is defined by The Apply Hypnosis Center as
"unconscious communication." The conscious mind is quite
difficult to try and convince -- and it's not even worth the effort.
Therefore, you will be learning every way possible, as I have, to
speak to a person's unconscious mind. Doing so will make your
ability to convince and persuade others a breeze.
When using hypnosis, keep in mind that it's not so much what
you say, rather how you say it. The unconscious brain is
sensitive to voice tone and inflection. You'll be learning this in
the beginning chapters about how to make your voice
hypnotically stimulating. So when you want something planted
into a person's unconscious brain, it's as easy as applying your
hypnotic tone of voice.
Once you begin the process of constructing your proper
hypnotic tone of voice, you'll then find yourself armed with a
variety of tools which will give you the ability to make everything
for education purposes only

really cant think why anyone would ever wnat to hypnotise somebody!

Like those "how to hypnotise women to have sex with you! books.
or make people employ you ar give you there car keys!

WHY?

Not only is it an offence against free will to hypnotise somebody..
how could you possibly have any self respect that your sexual partners even liked you!
that you deserved the job...! etc...

Even if you are successfull hypnotist, at the end of the day your ethical standards ARE going to be compromised by the act itself.. and so what possible self value can you have.

why would anyone want a worthless, fake to overpower their mind?

I dont think they would if they thought about it!


Plus the hypnotists are the ones who wanted to kill dobby!
and Nobody likes the type of people who wanted dobby dead!

I agree with what you state, and as far a s I am concerned it is mind rape. I have posted it here so that members will know and understand that there are people using this system who are not, in the least bit, ethical. the truth is, you will see when you have read a little, this is the system of control operated by the media, the news, for instance, is read in a monotone voice at a low resonance, and with what appears to be natural timbre in the voice. covert hypnosis can only work if those who are targeted are unaware of the methods used, so this is to help awareness. [but yes I agree again it is mind rape]
but I am happy for you to ignore, and rebut, hypnosis, if that is your wish. tick tock tick tock

Angelthecat is highlighting the fact that our english language has been constructed to allow hypnotic suggestions to be introduced without any detection. Putting it it simply, we have been entranced into our 3D illusory (prison) state via hypnotic suggestions (through language and symbols), and these hypnotic suggestions compel us to focus on the intellect (ego) rather than our hearts/intuition (inner tuition).

People need to realize that it is not just 'money' and 'time' that are the greatest control systems in place. It is also our language. And whilst 'money' and 'time' are so obviously controlling, our 'language' control system is much more covert and subtle, and therefore more powerful in its effectiveness. And it is way too overlooked.

I suggest you all read this mans posts. It will open your eyes to another, deeper truth.

Thanks for this, I know someone who is abusing and a little self defence is in order. I am not his brother but he needs to know the level.

Quote:
you say compelling. These are the psychological devices, the
tools, methods, the bullets.
I like to call them “bullets” because that’s what they are to me.
When I am talking with a person, I instantly shoot my device
into the brain with confidence knowing it is unconsciously
accepted. You'll find near the end of this e-book "signs" others
give off and that you can look for when you're using these
hypnotic techniques which will cause you to have the same
level of confidence I have when using hypnosis.
When you combine this e-book with the other e-books you
might have purchased in my gold program, you'll have
everything you need to make what you say stimulating to the
unconscious brain. You'll find as you continue to read, all the
stops are all pulled away, and your learning this will be easy
and fun. You'll be a master covert hypnotist in no time.
And remember, once you begin to put these applications in use,
and go out and in the real world armed with these hypnotic
tools, if at anytime you can prove to me you can’t get TEN
TIMES the persuasion power from this material, give me a call
or send me an e-mail and we can arrange for your refund.
But I don’t think that’s going to happen. I have a good feeling
about you. You bought this program because you wanted to
improve your communication in one form or another, and as
you continue to read this book, you’ll find a variety of ways
where you can easily begin to do that.
~Chapter One
A Mega-Watt Power -- Much Too Stimulating To Resist
If you've ever wondered what the single most important skill is
in communicating with anyone, that when mastered, would
single-handedly account for more sales, seductions, and
compliance than any other skill, I would tell you, without a doubt
-- it's the ability to use hypnosis. That's because the single
most important ingredient of any personal communication is....
7
words that persuade - instantly.
Listen closely. You could spend a bundle reading books and
attending seminars, use the "outdated" skills everyone already
knows, and practice it like crazy -- but all the "win friends &
influence” people skills in the world isn't going to do you much
good if your listener doesn't follow your way of thinking because
your “talk” isn't compelling enough to make them agree, let
alone, buy what you're selling, or surrendering to your charms.
Throughout the pages of this e-book, I'll show you how to easily
master the skill of hypnosis, achieve a double-digit
conversion ratio for your sales, reap immeasurable romantic
rewards in all your 'pick-up" efforts, and create more electrifying
personal and professional relationships you could ever want or
even imagine.
Sound too good to be true?
Well, it isn’t if you have the right tools… As you continue to read
this chapter, you will find out:
• How your life is “transparently” controlled and manipulated,
and how to change your way of viewing the world that
ultimately leads you to success with others in the blink of an
eye
• The reason hypnosis is single handedly the most powerful
skill you could ever develop – exactly who is using it on you,
how it affects you and why its so easy to implement on those
who know nothing of it.
• The 2,300 year old shocking secret of the human mind
which yields the key to controlling others leveraging the
initial weakness of the human mind.
There is a science to speaking compelling language (as well as
creating body language and non-verbal communications). And
there are certain immutable laws which govern the creation of
hypnotic presentations. Once these laws are followed, anyone
8
can achieve promising success in persuasion -- with
mathematical certainty.
Claim What’s Rightfully Yours
This is an incredible opportunity that is available to you -- but
only if you take the first step. Your first step is to read this ebook
in its entirety. Please don't just skim through it -- I don't
want you to miss a single word because when I demystify
covert hypnosis for you, you simply cannot fail to create the
persuasion and influence you want in life.
Quote:
"Nathan Blaszak is certainly a
world-class persuader. When
it comes to persuasion and
influence, he is -- hands-down
-- the best. He gave a sales
presentation for my salesman,
and all I could say was --
Wow! Fabulous! Amazing! I’m
sold! – and it was my bike that
he was selling me!"
-- Aaron Keeler, now a proud
owner of a competitor killing

The True Currency of The Civilized World
You've heard it said before. Words are the underlying currency
of today's business world. Words wield power that controls the
entire planet -- and words have the power to influence people,
alter beliefs, and even shape the destiny of the world.
Therefore, wordsmiths (skillful speakers) are the real "power
behind the throne," so to speak. In the brick-and-mortar world,
the most prominent wordsmiths are the speechwriters,
9
journalists, spin doctors, politicians, religious leaders,
advertising copywriters, and the like.
In civilizations, the most powerful wordsmiths are skilled
hypnotists. They are the ones who get people to obey, follow,
read, listen, surrender, comply, order, subscribe, commit or
take action that eventually leads to whatever they intend.
Since they are the driving force of civilizations, is it any wonder
that expert hypnotist's earn some of the highest incomes --
and that world leaders who have the ability to use undetectable
hypnosis are among the privileged few who generate serious
power in life?
The Truth About Hypnosis
Hypnosis is commonly thought of therapy, "Follow My Watch
From Side-to-side" and "you're getting sleepy" - obviously,
that’s not the kind of hypnosis you’ll be using to persuade and
influence others to make them feel compelled to take the action
you want.
Myth: Hypnosis only consists of subliminal tapes, a leather
sofa, and not everyone can be hypnotized.
Wrong!
Just because the internet and world consists of information that
relies solely on these subjects, doesn't mean there aren't any
other ways to hypnotize and persuade people. Here's a
shocker - if you know how to persuade and influence others
using hypnosis, every person you talk to will do whatever you
want them to, often times - without even knowing why they feel
compelled to do it.
What most people don't realize is that you can side-step the
English language and make what you say go right into a
person's unconscious mind while making it sound like a totally
innocent conversation. That’s exactly what you’ll be learning
here – the secrets of stealth hypnosis. And since most people
don’t know anything of it, it’s extremely hard to get caught.
10
In this way, you gain compliance effortlessly. Your subjects
don't perceive that they've received a command. Typically, they
will obey your command as if they had received it directly, but
without any resistance whatsoever.
What would you do if you had the ability to say special phrases
that make what you say seem like an innocent conversation
and get anyone to do what you want – without having a clue
you’re doing it?
Would you maybe use it to break the company sales record
and achieve savvy business success? Seduce others within
minutes? Land a job at an interview because you decided to
MAKE it turn out that way?
If you know how talk, you can get anyone to do what you want
quickly and easily – without strain. So today, you can kiss your
old way of communicating with others goodbye because you
now have a new found power within your reach, and it’s calling
your name…
More sales…
Better relationships…
Control over others…
What more could you possibly get from ONE skill?
If you aren't using hypnosis, or don’t have a clue how it’s done
– by now, you must be tired of the dismal results you’re getting
socially because your lacking the single most important skill to
influence anyone as strong as you should be able to.
Clearly, how you say things to a person will affect them
consciously or unconsciously. It will drive them emotionally or it
won’t. If you’ve ever been involved in a classic no-holdsbarred
argument before – Evidently, you were overwhelming
the person’s conscious mind, and you don’t have a clue how
your words affect a persons thoughts and emotions because if
you did – there wouldn’t be any arguments in your life.

part 3

Quote:
In fact, once you discover how covert hypnosis works, people
would be so drawn to you, and like you so much -- there would
be no reason whatsoever to argue or fight you because you
wouldn’t let that happen.
Hypnosis truly is power --- which is too stimulating to resist!
You Were Never Taught Covert Hypnosis
Listen, it’s not your fault if you’ve never been taught these
hard-hitting communicating secrets. If you were schooled in a
government public schooling house, you weren't ever taught
how to think, read or write hypnotically. If your parents didn’t
know about it, how were you taught? You weren’t!
Just think about it - If you knew how, and everyone else did too,
everyone who already knows this rare communication would
lose their power.
How many people do you know with power -- willing to part with
any of it?
Very few - if any. I stumbled across someone willing to reveal to
me only some of the methods of covert hypnosis, but I had to
pay a hefty price in the tens of thousands of dollars, and work
up sometimes unlikable motivation to spend long hours of
grueling study to find out what you’ll be learning in the this ebook.
Listen, the truth is: the skills of hypnotic communication are
hard to come by. And you’re getting thousands of dollars worth
of material in this single e-book. I dare you to try any of these
techniques and prove me wrong that they don’t work. If you
follow the techniques exactly the way they are shown –
naturally, you’ll see the true power they hold.
Most people – once they find themselves discovering these
breakthrough hypnotic skills, they find out that it is so extremely
powerful and the intensity of the secrets of hypnosis are so
12
ingenious, they aren’t willing to let go if this mouth-watering
knowledge from their mind and won’t tell anyone they know
these techniques. Hypnotic skill is protected by the single most
aggravating emotion to the uneducated – jealousy.
Consider today to be your lucky day dear friend, I am going to
be sharing with you all the secrets that took me years and cost
me a small fortune to discover. You aren’t going to have to put
forth the long hours and painstaking research like I did to find
out what hypnosis in the “covert” form is all about.
In fact, I’m going to hand them to you on a silver platter, and
you aren’t going to believe how easy it is to do! When you see
how as you continue to read this e-book, to get what you want
from others, you realize you can do it without any sweat! Just
be sure to send me an email when you get a chance thanking
me because I put a lot of effort into this e-book for you – it took
me two years to put this information in writing.
I know, I’m slow, but I have demanded to myself that I make
sure that no stones were left unturned, and you completely
understand every way hypnosis can be used covertly. As you
can see, I put quite a daunting task on myself as well as
expectations, and it is my dearest intention for you to find this ebook
to be worth every cent of your investment.
Have You already been successfully hypnotized covertly?
If you've ever thought back about “the good ole’ days” and think
to yourself how you wish you were a child again – without a
worry in the world, and have been wondering where the control
in your own future went, where it’s hiding, and why you don't
know what's going to happen next, you've been successfully
hypnotized – covertly!
I apologize for this unpleasant and blatant truth, but in order for
you to understand how it works, you must understand the way
it’s used, and there really is no other way to show you other
than to just come out with it.
13
A shocking Discovery
Listen carefully, if you understand the secrets of the human
mind which go back 2,300 years, all the mouth-watering power
over others can be yours. With hypnosis, it’s never been easier.
Since convert hypnosis is transparently difficult to detect, and
most individuals have been "conditioned" and set-up right from
the start to make choices by "following" external guidance, you
might find it a little hard at first to accept what you’re finding out
now as the truth. Undoubtedly, what you’re about to find out
next will free your mind within minutes if you’ll let it.
Quote:
A Word of Caution…
The following information is not fiction, but
thesis. By continuing reading, you agree not
to hold Apply Hypnosis or anyone associated
with Apply Hypnosis responsible for the
damages for the instant shattering of beliefs
due to the intensity of this information. If you
aren’t the kind of person who can handle
powerful knowledge, please scroll ahead to
the following chapters now. However, if you’re
ready to achieve unlimited persuasion results
and power over others that will make your
wildest dreams, look like a joke -- By all
means, please proceed…
The world is undeniably set up for you to fail. It all started years
ago around the age of 7. This is when you begin the process of
becoming mentally “conditioned” and built forcibly to let others
make decisions for you. You were given the “way of living” –
trained to get up, go to school, memorize facts, do the work you
are given, let your teachers make decisions for you, and worst
of all: “follow” the way the world works – you were never taught
how to think for yourself.
You then grow up to follow the same pattern. Get up, go to
work – you’re given “specialized” tasks at your job and
14
enviously guarded against gaining any sort of power in the
business you work for – the “white collar hoax” hold political
power in business – a microcosm of the way the world is setup.
Most people don’t realize that is the foremost reason why
most businesses fail to grow, diminish in value and lose the
competitive edge.
The reason for this is because, I wonder if you’ve ever noticed
how corporations seem to be more political rather than focused
on “value-production.” A short hand way of putting this is:
“Henry Ford created value-producing jobs for many Americans,
distributed cars and made them affordable on a mass scale for
everyone.” That is the purpose of business, not who can create
the award winning commercials, and who can suck up to the
boss best.
Unfortunately, the world is set up this way, and you’ve already
heard the expression “if you can’t beat em,’ join em.” Well, I am
not only going to show you how to join them, I am going to
show you how to beat them too using the world’s most
enviously guarded social influencing power.
If you come across a political game at your workplace, you’ll
have the advantage. If anyone tries using covert hypnosis on
you, you’ll stop them dead in their tracks. If you sincerely desire
to hold the most power in your dealings with others, this e-book
will give you that edge.
Welcome to the world of unconscious communication.
Certainly, what happens on a very rare occasion, a person
realizes on their own the way society is shaped and molded as I
have described to you – understanding this “set up” gives them
the leverage they need to break free from this society trap once
and for all.
Quote:
Think about the government
owned militaries for example.
Early on you are taught to
“obey” the authority over you
and to “do what they say”
without question or asking of
explanations. There is a chain
of command and “respect” is
shown by saluting the officer
over you – who only makes
you feel inferior and that you
must “look up” to the person
with power.
In the courtroom, the judge sits high, is trained to talk with a
deep resonating voice designed to make you feel inferior –
meant to make you feel intimidated and project an illusion
based heir’ of riotousness at the same time.
There are several examples of this – celebrities, religious
leaders, politicians – to name a few… It is not my wish to draw
arguments on this subject, just as so long as you understand
one simple idea “the world is set up for you to follow external
authority.” As you sit there and read more, you’ll realize this
truth and you’ll break free and begin to use your own mind like
you did before the age of 7. So, stick with me.
Don’t you think such “established” acts seem funny to a person
when you realize the truth? – nobody has power over anyone
else, its nothing more than a mere “gun backed” -- forced
illusion created and cast down by the “elite” – high rollers of
civilization which gives them to power to control people by the
masses. And if you tell them “no” you are threatened with
punishment.
Therefore, since most people are conditioned to behave this
way, and forced to remain this way, if you know the same
reproducible tools of hypnosis, you can control the behavior
of nearly anyone in the civilized world just like they do.
In fact, when you finish this e-book, you’ll more than likely have
more power then “they” do and you’ll see through their acts and
childish, very immature, weak and you’ll always have in the
back of your mind “I can do that better.
Now we are getting to the juicy bits
you see that authority is an hypnotic suggestion and does not really apply in reality!
for education purpose's only

Quote:
Earlier I asked if you’re ready to learn this incredibly powerful
form of communication. If you’re still reading this – obviously,
you want to find out exactly how to use hypnosis. With that
understanding between us, before you learn the specific tools,
are you willing to give me five more minutes to reveal to you the
most powerful secret of all time?
I thought so… So here’s the ultimate answer to the question:
How exactly can people be controlled?
There is a "glitch" if you will, in the human mind to search for
outside guidance – “external authority.” It goes back many
centuries, and gives anyone who holds this knowledge of the
"glitch" the power to make decisions for those who don't. Dr.
Julian Jaynes efforts and extensive research and his
integrated objectively factual book "The Origin Of
Consciousness” and his breakdown of the bicameral mind
proves this to be true.
Here’s a selection of his book, he writes:
Quote:
"
...the theory of evolution by
natural selection was the
hollowing knell of all that
ennobling tradition of man as
the purposed creation of
Majestic Greatness, the
elohim, that goes straight back
into the unconscious depths of
the Bicameral Age. It said in a
word that there is no
authorization from outside.
Behold! there is nothing there.
What we must do must come
from ourselves. The king at
Eynan can stop staring at
Mount Hermon; the dead king
can die at last. We, we fragile
human species at the end of
the second millennium a.d.,
we must become our own
authorization. And here at the
end of the second millennium
and about to enter the third,
we are surrounded with this
problem. It is one that the new
millennium will be working out,
perhaps slowly, perhaps
swiftly, perhaps even with
some further changes in our
mentality."
The Origin Of Consciousness
Julian Jaynes, Princeton
University
The summarized version of his book entails that over 2,300
years ago, man "obeyed" hallucinated voices and did not think
for themselves. They did not use consciousness. Studies reveal
hieroglyphics; the odyssey and many other ancient writings did
not involve the use of consciousness.
They were “right-brained” actions – better explained as
“hallucinations” of the mind to automatically follow without
question, debate or doubt – actions delivered automatically by
Mother Nature herself. Or better put – the “right-brain” or even
better, the unconscious mind.
To keep this simple – in short, man was not responsible for his
own actions and he did not think for himself – he only obeyed
the laws of nature.
A Metaphor to help you understand…
If you’ve ever seen an ant hill, such remarkable “mountain” so it
seems is created by such a small creature. Ants automatically
follow the laws of nature, and do what nature instructs. You do
18
not see these ants arguing, fighting, and stealing from oneanother
– dropping bomb’s over one another. Instead, you see
them just cooperatively building and enhancing each other’s
livability, and they do it naturally.
Likewise, man once built thriving pyramids and civilizations
automatically and naturally – just like the great “ant hill.” Man
learned from one another by mimicking the successful actions
of others. Later they came to develop a child-like grammar –
simple language if you will, as society grew more complex.
Unexplainably, as societies grew more complex than what the
“right brain” could make sense of and handle, societies began
to collapse, and one-by-one man now had to learn a new way
of thinking – man had to develop a particular organization of the
mind in order to make sense of the tragedies and fall of their
environment around them.
The collapse of these thriving societies was the cause for man
to INVENT what we commonly refer to today as the “conscious
mind.” Man for the first time in history, became responsible for
his own actions to make sense of the rising complexity of the
civilizations. Before it was simple, but now it’s too complex for
Mother Nature to control alone.
So What Do You Do Now?
Well, first -- that secret either hit your square between the eyes,
or it went breezing over your head. You might want to read it
again – this time, focusing on the few paragraphs and making
sense of what is written.
If you understood what you just read, there’s only one more
piece of information to make that secret complete which is:
You must remember that man back in the day, followed
“external authority” by hallucinating “voices” from the right-brain
-- across the corpus colossus, to the left brain and automatically
followed what was instructed – without question.
19
Quote:
When those voices grew silent and as
they “jumped” into conscious
awareness, they invented idols, leaders,
dictators, kings, queens, demons,
angels, gods, Allah and everything that
still exists today as an authority -- trying
desperately to bring those hallucinated
voices of automatic guidance back that
only grew more quiet.
Thus, observing the world with this in mind, perhaps now the
wool is no longer pulled over your eyes and you can now see
the “behind the scenes” truth about what is really going on in
the anti-civilization we all live in -- still to this day.
To further press this into your head, these “remnants” of the
mind to search for external guidance still exists today, and
desperately seek outside assistance rather than using
consciousness to solve their own problems, man can easily be
controlled by electing yourself to become that “outside”
assistance for them – often times, they will begin to idolize you
for it.
The next time you are in a mall, or somewhere in public, I
encourage you to observe the “zombie-like” behavior in most
people. They idolize celebrities, elect “leaders” to rule cities,
states and countries. Which is quite ironic considering even the
bible (one of the oldest books in history) states that no man has
the power to rule and guide civilizations.
Which brings us back to the fact that society is simply set-up
this way. And if everyone knew this secret, it wouldn’t be set-up
this way, and everyone who already knows it now, would not
have the power they do.
Just look around. Politicians rule over the “lower class” and
control what goes into the minds of your children by controlling
public schools. Certain religious leaders like in the Middle East
get individuals to believe they are doing well for an imagined
“Allah” to crash planes into one of the most value producing set
20
of buildings in New York City. Addictive and harmful drugs like
nicotine in tobacco products and caffeine in soda’s, ice cream
and chocolate are distributed, which destroys people’s health
for a “quick fix,” or in better words, the products are set up and
designed to be an external authority – it’s a “fix” or an “escape”
or evasion of reality.
Indeed, Dr. Julian Jaynes makes a shocking discovery for the
ordinary person. He talks about a new way of thinking we must
learn to develop, and that is the ability to rule and guide
ourselves – the ability to use our conscious mind – and to not
follow anyone’s way of thinking, but our own.
Sometimes even the BIGGEST secrets are hard to accept. I
apologize because I realize I did not prepare you for this secret.
If you find this secret fascinating, you can look that book up to
realize the whole truth. You might come to believe like I do – his
book will mark the end of a 2,300 year old hoax, and it’s going
to happen sooner than we probably expect. I’m guessing
sometime after 2005, or maybe even sooner.
So, in essence, you can control other people easily today by
becoming their “authoritive” voice – their external authority. You
can act as their decision maker. But in today’s day in age it’s
seemingly more difficult to do than it was just a few years back.
Teenager thrash music is already showing signs of rebellion
crying slogans such as “we don’t need authority.” And there are
signs that “ruling over others” is getting weaker. Simply put, the
younger generations don’t like to be told what to do.
So as a rule of thumb, the older the person is, the easier it
becomes to lead their mind. They hold much stronger beliefs
based on years of “governments” and “churches.” It would be
too late to give up the system now because everything they’ve
ever been taught would vanish in a heartbeat, so they hang on
desperately to try to protect this strongly developed belief and
“code of living” they’ve grown to adapt and follow. Plus, they
would realize they’ve wasted years to “follow” others, instead of
leading themselves and having much more control over their
for educational purposes only

Is it any wonder the presidential campaigns aim towards the
elderly, for they are the political world’s strongest crowd? The
newer generations seemingly are detecting something’s not
right, and are catching on to the dishonesty in politics, and the
amount of support for the way we live today is dwindling – we
are losing faith and trust for the “agenda” way.
Case closed. You can find out more about this amazing 2,300
year old secret by getting the book “The Origin Of
Consciousness” – Dr. Julian Jaynes. Now let’s get on with the
stealth devices of hypnotizing others without getting caught,
shall we?
Review: In civilization today, people are conditioned to follow
authority. You can voluntarily become an authority. Most people
don’t mind following someone else’s way of thinking.
Hope you enjoyed finding out that you are in a state of trance, all ways have been and probably always will. you can not consider yourself awake until you recognise that there are no Authorities over you, and stop referring to them as governments, at best, get the mindset that they are alleged authorities and alleged government. ask them to show you their authority and they point to something written by themselves, thus giving themselves the authority, [pure, stupid circular logic!]
an authority given can not exceed the authority of the giver,


A little from Dr Julian Jaynes next we think

ps. pm me if you want to know what happens in the rest of the book

Predatorts can destroy natural biodiversity.. just as having no natural predators can leave population numbers uncurbed!
I think it is important to realise how beautiful the ebb and flow of life is in nature! But how abhorrant and mutated life tends to become under the influence of man!
ATLANTIS was a city of advanced beings who had a choice-
1) to teach the savage world the truth and become lost in genetic equality as bloodlines mingled.
2) to become overlords and evolve efficiently on a world which would still have unlearned savages from corner to corner.

They unfortunatly chose the second option.. The universal spirit sensing that the future of humanity was basicly slavelords and savage underclass nipped the problem in the bud by destroying atlantis before it could outstrip the rest of humanity so much it could class itself as a seperate species.

Hypnotists are obviously a different breed of people! But i would be most interested to meet people who can do hypnosis but choose not to out of ethical foresight. It is a pityfull thing when a man willfully uses his only talent without consideration of terminal velocity or equality!

WE ARE WAITING for the universe to align and the divine engine to spark into life.. And i really only think that hypnotists exist so they can be integrated into the device.. This may not be a comfortable thing for men with minds that have only ever disempowered and overwhelmed.
More robot than man.. How can these people sleep at night!
if they hide themselves too well in society the planet may have to be extreme to get them all!
Why dont we just round them all up and make it simple!
they court disaster for us all! and in some cases make simpleminded parents watch tv. whist they go and play upstairs with the kids!It should be banned! or at least everyhypnotist should be polygraphed for ethical standpoint!

Tick tock!
1) I dont understand why we dont police hypnosis with hypnotists who are ethicly GREAT! a hypnotists LICENSE no less..... maybe get them to write a few words or make an oath similar to the hypocratic!
2) I dont understand why 60 years after the invention of the polygraph we still dont use it to gauge ethics in individuals applying for jobs which require clear heartedness or indeed are defined by it!
3) fairplay to fighting the holocaust.. But look what we do if left to rule ourselves, just make places for badness to breed!

If i was an alien studying wether to begin first contact i would definatley want to know what the civilisation had done with these two definitive mind choices!
Its obvious the planet is in trouble and its obvious that we have the technology to save it, but no-one wants too.. why? If we dont we are all dead! including the hypnotists.. trouble is they are so cold inside they probably are prepared to take the risk!
EXPERIMENT- Try saying to your MP, "we should make hypnotists get licenses" and watch in horror as his eyes glaze over and he says NO!.

experiment for hypnotists- Go up to a well balanced normal person put him in trance and once hes under tell him he is a peadophile! Once he has adjusted his energybody to your sick perversion.. simply wake him up and watch as his entire emotional and spiritual and subconsious magical bodies just shut down out of sheer horror at himself! then simply dance on his grave metaphoricly and steal his soul- REPEAT- ad infinatum until caught! £300,000

I dont disagree with your sentiment, but the problem is much larger than you think. everyone is hypnotised, and we all hypnotise people all the time, all political writers use this technique when writing speeches, I just want people to know of the possibility that they have all succumb, all news broadcast have embedded commands, and even the questioning of politicians works the other way. In Julian Jaynes book it points out that the body perceives language differently than the intellect, so if what you know as an intellectual comes from an outside source, then you are hypnotised!
so please dont shoot the messenger, the post is a warning of what is happening.
thank you for your input

From Julian Jaynes book The Origin Of Consciousness [and with many thanks]

Quote:
Hypnosis
IF I ASK YOU to taste vinegar as champagne, to feel pleasure
when I jab a pin in your arm, or to stare into darkness and contract
the pupils of your eyes to an imagined light, or to willfully
and really believe something you do not ordinarily believe, just
anything, you would find these tasks difficult if not impossible.
But if I first put you through the induction procedures of hypnosis,
you could accomplish all these things at my asking without
any effort whatever.
Why? How can such supererogatory enabling even exist?
It seems a very different company we enter when we go from
the familiarity of poetry to the strangeness of hypnosis. For
hypnosis is the black sheep of the family of problems which
constitute psychology. It wanders in and out of laboratories and
carnivals and clinics and village halls like an unwanted anomaly.
It never seems to straighten up and resolve itself into the firmer
proprieties of scientific theory. Indeed, its very possibility seems
a denial of our immediate ideas about conscious self-control on
the one hand, and our scientific idea about personality on the
other. Yet it should be conspicuous that any theory of consciousness
and its origin, if it is to be responsible, must face the difficulty
of this deviant type of behavioral control.
I think my answer to the opening question is obvious: hypnosis
can cause this extra enabling because it engages the general
bicameral paradigm which allows a more absolute control over
behavior than is possible with consciousness.

In this chapter, I shall even go so far as to maintain that no
theory other than the present one makes sense of the basic
problem. For if our contemporary mentality is, as most people
suppose, an immutable genetically determined characteristic
evolved back somewhere in mammalian evolution or before, how
can it be so altered as in hypnosis? And that alteration merely at
some rather ridiculous ministrations of another person? It is
only by rejecting the genetic hypothesis and treating consciousness
as a learned cultural ability over the vestigial substrate of an
earlier more authoritarian type of behavioral control that such
alterations of mind can begin to seem orderly.
The central structure of this chapter, obviously, will be to show
how well hypnosis fits the four aspects of the bicameral paradigm.
But before I do so, I wish to bring out clearly a most
important feature of how hypnosis began in the first place. This
is what I have emphasized in I.2 and II.5, the generative force of
metaphor in creating new mentality.
The Paraphrands of Newtonian Forces
Hypnosis, like consciousness, begins at a particular point in
history in the paraphrands of a few new metaphors. The first of
these metaphors followed Sir Isaac Newton’s discovery of the
laws of universal gravitation and his use of them to explain the
ocean tides under the attraction of the moon. The mysterious
attractions and influences and controls between people were then
compared to Newtonian gravitational influences. And the comparison
resulted in a new (and ridiculous) hypothesis, that there
are tides of attraction between all bodies, living and material, that
can be called animal gravitation, of which Newton’s gravitation is
a special case.
This is all very explicit in the romantic and turbid writings of a
wanton admirer of Newton‘s called Anton Mesmer, who began it
all. And then came another metaphor, or rather two. Gravitational
attraction is similar to magnetic attraction. Therefore,
since (in Mesmer‘s rhetorical thought) two things similar to a
third thing are similar to each other, animal gravitation is like
magnetic attraction, and so changes its name to animal magnetism.
Now at last the theory was testable in a scientific way. To
demonstrate the existence of these vibrant magnetic tides in and
through living things similar to celestial gravitation, Mesmer applied
magnets to various hysterical patients, even prefeeding the
patients with medicines containing iron so that the magnetism
might work better. And it did! The result could not be doubted
with the knowledge of his day. Convulsive attacks were produced
by the magnets, creating in Mesmer‘s words “an artificial ebb and
flow” in the body and correcting with its magnetic attraction “the
unequal distribution of the nervous fluids confused movement,”
thus producing a “harmony of the nerves.” He had ‘proved’ that
there are flows of forces between persons as mighty as those that
hold the planets in their orbits.
Of course he hadn‘t proved anything about any kind of magnetism
whatever. He had discovered what Sir James Braid on the
metaphier of sleep later called hypnosis. The cures were effective
because he had explained his exotic theory to his patients
with vigorous conviction. The violent seizures and peculiar twists
of sensations at the application of magnets were all due to a cognitive
imperative that these things would happen, which they
did, constituting a kind of self-perpetuating escalating ‘proof’ that
the magnets were working and could effect a cure. We should
remember here that just as in ancient Assyria there was no
concept of chance and so the casting of lots ‘had’ to be controlled
by the gods, so in the eighteenth century there was no concept of
suggestion and the result had to be due to the magnets.
Then when it was found that not only magnets, but cups,
bread, wood, human beings, and animals to which a magnet had
been touched were also efficacious (how false beliefs breed upon
each other!), the whole matter jumped over into another metaphor
(this is the fourth), that of static electricity, which — Benjamin
Franklin's kite and all — was being so much studied at the
time. Thus Mesmer thought there was a "magnetic material"
that could be transferred to a countless array of objects, just as
static electricity can. Human beings in particular could store up
and absorb magnetism, particularly Mesmer himself. Just as a
carbon rod stroked with fur produces static electricity, so patients
were to be stroked by Mesmer. He could now dispense with
actual magnets and use his own animal magnetism. By stroking
or making passes over the bodies of his patients, as if they were
carbon rods, he produced the same results: convulsions, coiling
twists of peculiar sensations, and the cure of what later were
called hysterical illnesses.
Now it is critical here to realize and to understand what we
might call the paraphrandic changes which were going on in the
people involved, due to these metaphors. A paraphrand, you will
remember, is the projection into a metaphrand of the associations
or paraphiers of a metaphier. The metaphrand here is the influences
between people. The metaphiers, or what these influences
are being compared to, are the inexorable forces of gravitation,
magnetism, and electricity. And their paraphiers of absolute
compulsions between heavenly bodies, of unstoppable currents
from masses of Ley den jars, or of irresistible oceanic tides of
magnetism, all these projected back into the metaphrand of
interpersonal relationships, actually changing them, changing
the psychological nature of the persons involved, immersing
them in a sea of uncontrollable control that emanated from the
Educational purpose

part 2

Quote:
'magnetic fluids’ in the doctor's body, or in objects which had
'absorbed' such from him.
It is at least conceivable that what Mesmer was discovering
was a different kind of mentality that, given a proper locale, a
special education in childhood, a surrounding belief system, and
isolation from the rest of us, possibly could have sustained itself
as a society not based on ordinary consciousness, where metaphors
of energy and irresistible control would assume some of the
functions of consciousness.
How is this even possible? As I have mentioned already, I
think Mesmer was clumsily stumbling into a new way of engaging
that neurological patterning I have called the general bicameral
paradigm with its four aspects: collective cognitive imperative,
induction, trance, and archaic authorization. I shall take up each
in turn.

The Changing Nature of Hypnotic Man
That the phenomenon of hypnosis is under the control of a
collective cognitive imperative or group belief system is clearly
demonstrated by its continual changing in history. As beliefs
about hypnosis changed, so also its very nature. A few decades
after Mesmer, subjects no longer twisted with strange sensations
and convulsions. Instead they began spontaneously to speak and
reply to questions during their trance state. Nothing like this had
happened before. Then, early in the nineteenth century, patients
spontaneously began to forget what had happened during the
trance,2 something never reported previously. Around 1825, for
some unknown reason, persons under hypnosis started to spontaneously
diagnose their own illnesses. In the middle of the
century, phrenology, the mistaken idea that conformations of the
skull indicate mental faculties, became so popular that it actually
Vestiges of the Bicameral Mind in the Modern World
engulfed hypnosis for a time. Pressure on the scalp over a phrenological
area during hypnosis caused the subject to express the
faculty controlled by that area (yes, this actually happened), a
phenomenon never seen before or since. When the scalp area
over the part of the brain supposedly responsible for "veneration"
was pressed, the hypnotized subject sunk to his knees in prayer!3
This was so because it was believed to be so.
A little later, Charcot, the greatest psychiatrist of his time,
demonstrated to large professional audiences at the Salpetriere
that hypnosis was again quite different! Now it had three successive
stages: catalepsy, lethargy, and somnambulism. These
"physical states" could be changed from one to another by
manipulating muscles, or various pressures, or friction on the top
of the head. Even rubbing the head over Broca's area produced
aphasia! And then Binet, arriving at the Salpetriere to check on
the findings of Charcot, promptly compounded the problem by
returning to Mesmer's magnets and discovering even more bizarre
behavior.4 Placing magnets on one side or the other of the
body of a hypnotized person, he could flip-flop perceptions, hysterical
paralyses, supposed hallucinations, and movements from
one side to the other, as if such phenomena were so many iron
filings. None of these absurd results was ever found before or
since.
It is not simply that the operator, Mesmer or Charcot or whoever,
was suggesting to the pliant patient what the operator
believed hypnosis to be. Rather, there had been developed within
the group in which he worked a cognitive imperative as to what
the phenomenon was 'known' to be. Such historical changes then
clearly show that hypnosis is not a stable response to given
stimuli, but changes as do the expectations and preconceptions of
a particular age.
What is obvious in history can be shown in a more experimentally
controlled way. Previously unheard-of manifestations
of hypnosis can be found by simply informing subjects beforehand
that such manifestations are expected in hypnosis, that is,
are a part of the collective cognitive imperative about the matter.
For example, an introductory psychology class was casually told
that under hypnosis a subject's dominant hand cannot be moved.
This had never occurred in hypnosis in any era. It was a lie.
Nevertheless, when members of the class at a later time were
hypnotized, the majority, without any coaching or further suggestion,
were unable to move their dominant hand. Out of such
studies has come the notion of the "demand characteristics" of
the hypnotic situation, that the hypnotized subject exhibits the
phenomena which he thinks the hypnotist expects.5 But that
expresses it too personally. It is rather what he thinks hypnosis
is. And such "demand characteristics," taken in this way, are of
precisely the same nature as what I am calling the collective
cognitive imperative.
Another way of seeing the force of the collective imperative is
to note its strengthening by crowds. Just as religious feeling and
belief is enhanced by crowds in churches, or in oracles by the
throngs that attended them, so hypnosis in theaters. It is well
known that stage hypnotists with an audience packed to the
Vestiges of the Bicameral Mind in the Modern World
rafters, reinforcing the collective imperative or expectancy of
hypnosis, can produce far more exotic hypnotic phenomena than are
found in the isolation of laboratory or clinic.
The Induction
Secondly, the place of an induction procedure in hypnosis is
obvious.6 And needs little comment. The variety of techniques
in contemporary practice is enormous, but they all share the
same narrowing of consciousness, similar to the induction procedures
for oracles, or the relationship between a pelestike and a
katochos which we looked at in the previous chapters. The subject
may be seated or standing or lying down, may be stroked or
not, stared at or not, asked to look at a small light or flame or
gem, or perhaps a thumbtack on the wall, or at the thumbnail of
his own clasped hands, or not — there are hundreds of variations.
But always the operator is trying to confine the subject';
attention to his own voice. "All you hear is my voice and you are
getting sleepier and sleepier, etc." is a common pattern, repeated
until the subject, if hypnotized, is unable to open his clasped
hands if the operator says he can't, for example, or cannot move
his relaxed arm if the operator so suggests, or cannot remember
his name if that is suggested. Such simple suggestions are often
used as indications of the success of the hypnosis in its beginning
stages.
If the subject is not able to narrow his consciousness in this
fashion, if he cannot forget the situation as a whole, if he remains
in a state of consciousness of other considerations, such as
the room and his relationship to the operator, if he is still narra-
tizing with his analog ‘I’ or 'seeing' his metaphor 'me' being hypnotized,
hypnosis will be unsuccessful. But repeated attempts
with such subjects often succeed, showing that the "narrowing"
of consciousness in hypnotic induction is partly a learned ability,
learned, I should add, on the basis of the aptic structure I have
called the general bicameral paradigm. As we saw earlier that
the ease with which a katochos can enter an hallucinatory trance
improves with practice, so also in hypnosis: even in the most
susceptible, the length of the induction and its substances can be
radically reduced with repeated sessions.
Trance and Paralogic Compliance
Thirdly, the hypnotic trance is called just that. It is of course
usually different from the kind of trance that goes on in other
vestiges of the bicameral mind. Individuals do not have true
auditory hallucinations, as in the trances of oracles or mediums.
That place in the paradigm is taken over by the operator. But
there is the same diminution and then absence of normal consciousness.
Narratization is severely restricted. The analog 'P is
more or less effaced. The hypnotized subject is not living in a
subjective world. He does not introspect as we do, does not know
he is hypnotized, and is not constantly monitoring himself as, in
an unhypnotized state, he does.
In recent times, the metaphor of submersion in water is almost
invariably used to talk about the trance. Thus there are
references to "going under" and to "deep" or "shallow" trances.
The hypnotist often tells a subject he is going "deeper and
deeper." It is indeed possible that without the submersion metaphier,
the whole phenomenon would be different, particularly in
regard to post-hypnotic amnesia. The paraphiers of above and
below the surface of water, with its different visual and tactual
fields, could be creating a kind of two-world-ness resulting in
something similar to state-dependent memory. And the sudden

Quote:
appearance of spontaneous post-hypnotic amnesia in the early
nineteenth century may be due to this change from gravitational
to submersion metaphors. In other words, spontaneous posthypnotic
amnesia may have been a paraphrand of the submersion
metaphor. (It is interesting to note that such spontaneous
amnesia is presently disappearing from hypnotic phenomena.
Possibly, hypnosis has become so familiar as to become a thing
in itself, its metaphorical basis wearing away with use, reducing
the power of its paraphrands.)
It is in the "deeper" stages of the trance that the most interesting
phenomena can be elicited. These are extremely important
for any theory of mind to explain. Unless otherwise suggested,
the subject is 'deaf' to all but the operator's voice; he does not
'hear' other people. Pain can be 'blocked' off, or enhanced above
normal. So can sensory experience. Emotions can be totally
structured by suggestion: told he is about to hear a funny joke,
the subject will laugh uproariously at "grass is green." The subject
can somehow control certain automatic responses better than
in the normal state at the suggestion of the operator. His sense
of identity can be radically changed. He can be made to act as if
he were an animal, or an old man, or a child.
But it is an as-if with a suppression of an it-isn't. Some extremists
in hypnosis have sometimes claimed that when a subject in a
trance is told he is now only five or six years old, that an actual
regression to that age of childhood occurs. This is clearly untrue.
Let me cite one example. The subject had been born in Germany,
and emigrated with his family to an English-speaking
country at about age eight, at which time he learned English,
forgetting most of his German. When the operator suggested to
him under 'deep' hypnosis that he was only six years old, he
displayed all kinds of childish mannerisms, even writing in childish
print on a blackboard. Asked in English if he understood
English, he childishly explained in English that he could not
understand or speak English but only German! He even printed
on the blackboard in English that he could not understand a word
of English!7 The phenomenon is thus like play acting, not a true
regression. It is an uncritical and illogical obedience to the operator
and his expectations that is similar to the obedience of a
bicameral man to a god.
Another common error made about hypnosis, even in the best
modern textbooks, is to suppose that the operator can induce true
hallucinations. Some unpublished observations of my own bear
to the contrary. After a subject was in deep hypnosis, I went
through the motions of giving him a nonexistent vase and asked
him to place nonexistent flowers from a table into the vase, saying
out loud the color of each one. This was easily done. It was playacting.
But giving him a nonexistent book, and asking him to
hold it in his hands, to turn to page one and begin reading was a
different matter. It could not be play-acted without more creativity
than most of us can muster. The subject would readily go
through the suggested motions of holding such a book, might
stumble through some cliche first phrase or possibly a sentence,
but then would complain that the print was blurry, or too difficult
to read, or some similar rationalization. Or when asked to describe
a picture (nonexistent) on a blank piece of paper, the
subject would reply in a halting way if at all, giving only short
answers when prodded by questions as to what he saw. If this
had been a true hallucination, his eyes would have roamed over
the paper and a full description would have been a simple matter
— as it is when schizophrenics describe their visual hallucinations.
There were great individual differences here, as might be
expected, but the behavior is much more consistent with an as-if
hesitant role-taking than with the effortless givenness with which
true hallucinations are experienced.
This point is brought out by another experiment. If a hypnotized
person is told to walk across the room, and a chair has been
placed in his path, and he is told that there is no chair there, he

does not hallucinate the chair out of existence. He simply walks
around it. He behaves as if he did not notice it — which of
course he did, since he walked around it. It is interesting here
that if unhypnotized subjects are asked to simulate hypnosis in
this particular situation, they promptly crash into the chair,8
since they are trying to be consistent with the erroneous view that
hypnosis actually changes perceptions.
Hence the important concept of trance logic which has been
brought forward to denote this difference.9 This is simply the
bland response to absurd logical contradictions. But it is not any
kind of logic really, nor simply a trance phenomenon. It is rather
what I would prefer to dress up as paralogical compliance to
verbally mediated reality. It is paralogic because the rules of
logic (which we remember are an external standard of truth, not
the way the mind works) are put aside to comply with assertions
about reality that are not concretely true. It is a type of behavior
found everywhere in the human condition from contemporary
religious litanies to various superstitions of tribal societies. But
it is particularly pronounced in and centrally characteristic of the
mental state of hypnosis.
It is paralogic compliance that a subject walks around a chair
he has been told is not there, rather than crashing into it (logical
compliance), and finds nothing illogical in his actions. It is paralogical
compliance when a subject says in English that he knows
no English and finds nothing amiss in saying so. If our German
subject had been simulating hypnosis, he would have shown
logical compliance by talking only in what German he could
remember or being mute.
It is paralogic compliance when a subject can accept that the
same person is in two locations at the same time. If a hypnotized
subject is told that person X is person Y, he will behave accord-

simulate the hypnotic state has been done by Martin Orne. This ingeniously simple
example is due to him.

ingly. Then if the real person Y walks into the room, the subject
finds it perfectly acceptable that both are person Y. This is
similar to the paralogic compliance found today in another vestige
of the bicameral mind, schizophrenia. Two patients in a
ward may both believe themselves to be the same important or
divine person without any feelings of illogicality.10 I suggest
that a similar paralogic compliance was also evident in the bicameral
era itself, as in treating unmoving idols as living and
eating, or the same god as being in several places at one time, or
in the multiples of jewel-eyed effigies of the same god-king found
side-by-side in the pyramids. Like a bicameral man, the hypnotized
subject does not recognize any peculiarities and inconsistencies
in his behavior. He cannot ‘see’ contradictions because he
cannot introspect in a completely conscious way.
The sense of time in a trance is also diminished, as we have
seen it was in the bicameral mind. This is particularly evident in
post-hypnotic amnesia. We, in our normal states, use the spatialized
succession of conscious time as a substrate for successions of
memories. Asked what we have done since breakfast, we commonly
narratize a row of happenings that are what we can call
"time-tagged." But the subject in a hypnotic trance, like the
schizophrenic patient or the bicameral man, has not such a
schema of time in which events can be time-tagged. The beforeand
afterness of spatialized time is missing. Such events as can
be remembered from the trance by a subject in post-hypnotic
amnesia are vague isolated fragments, cuing off the self, rather
than spatialized time as in normal remembering. Amnesic subjects
can only report, if anything, "I clasped my hands, I sat in a
chair," with no detail or sequencing, in a way that to me is
reminiscent of Hammurabi or Achilles.11 What is significantly
10 For an extensive description of one example, see Milton Rokeach, The Three
Christs of Ypsilanti (New York: Knopf, 1960).
11 I am grateful to John Kihlstrom of Harvard for discussions on these points. The
distinct contrast between the language of amnesics and that of rememberers is from his study, soon to be published.

different about the contemporary hypnotic subject, however, is
the fact that at the suggestion of the operator, the narratized
sequential memories can often be brought back to the subject,
showing that there has been some kind of parallel processing by
consciousness outside of the trance.
Such facts make the hypnotic trance a fascinating complexity.
Parallel processing! While a subject is doing and saying one
thing, his brain is processing his situation in at least two different
ways, one more inclusive than the other. This conclusion can be
demonstrated even more dramatically by the recent discovery
that has been dubbed "the hidden observer." A hypnotized subject,
after the suggestion that he will feel nothing when keeping
his hand in a bucket of ice-cold water for a minute (a really
painful, but benign experience!), may show no discomfort and
say he felt nothing; but if it has previously been suggested that
when and only when the operator touches his shoulder, he will
say in another voice exactly what he really felt, that is what
happens. At such a touch, the subject, often in a low guttural
voice, may give full expression to his discomfiture, yet return
immediately to his ordinary voice and to the anesthetized state
when the operator's hand is lifted.12
Such evidence returns us to a once rejected notion of hypnosis
known as dissociation that emerged from studies of multiple
personality at the beginning of this century.13 The idea is that in
hypnosis the totality of mind or reactivity is being separated into
concurrent streams which can function independently of each
other. What this means for the theory of consciousness and its
origin as described in Book I is not immediately apparent. But
for education purposes only

Thumbs up Thanks for sharing

This book is very interesting. Have you been able to covertly hypnotize someone yet? I would very much like a copy of this book.

Quote:
such dissociated processing is certainly reminiscent of the bicameral
organization of mind itself, as well as the kind of nonconscious
problem solving discussed in I.1.
Perhaps the least discussed aspect of hypnosis is the difference
in the nature of the trance among persons who have never seen
or known much about hypnosis before. Usually, of course, the
trance is in our time a passive and suggestible state. But some
subjects really do go to sleep. Others are always partly conscious
and yet peculiarly suggestible until who can judge between acting
and reality? Others tremble so severely that the subject has to be
'awakened'. And so on.
That such individual differences are due to differences in the
belief or collective cognitive imperative of the individual is suggested
by a recent study. Subjects were asked to describe in
writing what happens in hypnosis. They were later hypnotized,
and the results compared with their expectation. One 'awoke'
from the trance each time she was given a task for which she had
to see. A later perusal of her paper showed she had written, "A
person's eyes must be closed in order to be in a hypnotic trance."
Another could only be hypnotized on a second attempt. He had
written, "Most people cannot be hypnotized the first time." And
another could not perform tasks under hypnosis when standing.
She had written, "The subject has to be reclining or sitting."14
But the more hypnosis is talked about, even as on these pages,
the more standardized the cognitive imperative and hence the
trance becomes.
The Hypnotist as Authorization
And so, fourthly, a very particular kind of archaic authorization
which also determines in part the different nature of the
trance. For here, instead of the authorization being an hallucinated
or possessing god, it is the operator himself. He is mani-
14 T. R. Sarbin, "Contribution to Role-Taking Theory: I. Hypnotic Behavior,"
Psychology Review, 1943, 57: 255-270.

festly an authority figure to the subject. And if he is not, the subject
will be less hypnotizable, or will require a much longer induction
or a much greater belief in the phenomenon to begin with (a
stronger cognitive imperative).
Indeed, most students of the subject insist that there must be
developed a special kind of trust relationship between the subject
and the operator.15 One common test of the susceptibility to
hypnosis is to stand behind the prospective subject and ask him to
permit himself to fall voluntarily to see what it feels like to ‘let
go’. If the subject steps back to break his fall, some part of him
lacking confidence that he will be caught, he almost invariably
turns out to be a poor hypnotic subject for that particular
operator.16
Such trust explains the difference between hypnosis in the
clinic and in the laboratory. The hypnotic phenomena found in a
medical psychiatric setting are commonly more profound, because,
I suggest, a psychiatrist is a more godlike figure to his
patient than is an investigator to his subject. And a similar
explanation can be made for the age at which hypnosis is most
easily done. Hypnotic susceptibility is at its peak between the
ages of eight and ten.17 Children look up to adults with a vastly
15 Even Clark Hull, a strident behaviorist, the first to perform really controlled
experiments in hypnosis, and who scorned introspective data, was compelled to look
on hypnosis as "prestige suggestion," perhaps with "a quantitative shift in the upward
direction which may result from the hypnotic procedure." Hypnosis and Suggestibility:
An Experimental Approach (New York: Appleton-Century-Crofts, 1933),
p. 392.
16 See Ernest Hilgard, Hypnotic Susceptibility (New York: Harcourt, Brace and
World, 1965), p. 101. Those investigating glossolalia, discussed in III.2, have
remarked that the person able to "speak in tongues" must have a very similar kind
of trust in his charismatic leader. When such trust in such a leader diminishes, so
does the phenomenon. It would be a simple matter, using cassette recordings for
hypnotic induction procedures, to manipulate the variable of prestige and really
demonstrate the importance of this factor in hypnosis.
17 From the data of Theodore X. Barber and D. S. Calverley, "Hypnotic-Like
Suggestibility in Children and Adults," Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology,
1963, 66: 5S9-597. In a forthcoming book, I shall be discussing the development of
consciousness in the child, suggesting that this age of greatest hypnotic susceptibility
is just after the full development of consciousness.

greater sense of adult omnipotence and omniscience, and this
thus increases the potentiality of the operator in fulfilling the
fourth element of the paradigm. The more godlike the operator
is to the subject, the more easily is the bicameral paradigm
activated.
Evidence for the Bicameral Theory of Hypnosis
If it is true that the relationship of subject to operator in
hypnosis is a vestige of an earlier relationship to a bicameral
voice, several interesting questions arise. If the neurological
model outlined in I.5 is in the right direction, then we might
expect some kind of laterality phenomenon in hypnosis. Our
theory predicts that in EEG’s of a subject under hypnosis, the
ratio of brain activity in the right hemisphere would be increased
over that of the left, although this is complicated by the fact that
it is the left hemisphere that to some extent must understand the
operator. But at least we would expect proportionally more right
hemisphere involvement than in ordinary consciousness.
At the present time we have no clear idea about even a usual
EEG under hypnosis, such the conflicting findings of researchers.
But there are other lines of evidence, even if they are unfortunately
more correlational and indirect. They are:
Individuals can be categorized by whether they use the right
or left hemisphere relatively more than others. A simple way of
doing this is to face a person and ask questions and note which
way his eyes move as he thinks of an answer. (As in 1.5, we are
speaking only of right-handed people.) If to his right, he is using
his left hemisphere relatively more, and if to the left, his right
hemisphere — since activation of the frontal eye fields of either
hemisphere turns the eyes to the contralateral side. It has been
recently reported that people who, in answering questions face to
face, turn their eyes to the left, who are thus using their right
hemisphere more than most others, are much more susceptible to
hypnosis.18 This can be interpreted as indicating that hypnosis
may involve the right hemisphere in very special ways, that the
more easily hypnotized person is the one who can ‘listen to* and
‘rely on’ the right hemisphere more than others.
As we saw in I.5, the right hemisphere, which we have
presumed to have been the source of divine hallucinations in
earlier millennia, is presently considered to be the more creative,
spatial, and responsible for vivid imagery. Several recent studies
have found that individuals who manifest these characteristics
more than others are indeed more susceptible to hypnosis.19
These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that hypnosis
is a reliance on right hemisphere categories, just as a bicameral
man relied on his divine guidance.
If calling hypnosis a vestige of the bicameral mind is valid,
we might also expect that those most susceptible to being hypnotized
would be those most susceptible to other instances of the
general bicameral paradigm. In regard to religious involvement,
this appears to be true. Persons who have attended church regularly
since childhood are more susceptible to hypnosis, while
those who have had less religious involvement tend to be less
susceptible. At least some investigators of hypnosis that I know
seek their subjects in theological colleges because they have
found such students to be more susceptible.
The phenomenon of imaginary companions in childhood is
something I shall have more to say about in a future work. But it
too can be regarded as another vestige of the bicameral mind. At
least half of those whom I have interviewed remembered distinctly
that hearing their companions speak was the same quality
of experience as hearing the question as I asked it. True halluci-

Press, 1970), Ch. 7. The data on which the next three paragraphs are based

nation. The incidence of imaginary companions occurs mostly
between the ages of three and seven, just preceding what I would
regard as the full development of consciousness in children. My
thinking here is that, either by some innate or environmental
predisposition to have imaginary companions, the neurological
structure of the general bicameral paradigm is (to use a metaphor)
exercised. If the hypothesis of this chapter is correct, we
might then expect such persons to be more susceptible to the
engagement of that paradigm later in life — as in hypnosis. And
they are. Those who have had imaginary companions in childhood
are easier to hypnotize than those who have not. Again it is
a case where hypnotizability is correlated with another vestige of
the bicameral mind.
If we can regard punishment in childhood as a way of
instilling an enhanced relationship to authority, hence training
some of those neurological relationships that were once the bicameral
mind, we might expect this to increase hypnotic susceptibility.
And this is true. Careful studies show that those who
have experienced severe punishment in childhood and come from
a disciplined home are more easily hypnotized, while those who
were rarely punished or not punished at all tend to be less susceptible
to hypnosis.
These laboratory findings are only suggestive, and there are
quite different ways of understanding them, for which I refer the
reader to the original reports. But together they do form a pattern
which lends support to the hypothesis that hypnosis is in
part a vestige of a preconscious mentality. Placing the phenomena
of hypnosis against the broad historical background of mankind
in this way gives them certain contours that they would not
otherwise have. If one has a very definite biological notion of
consciousness and that its origin is back in the evolution of mammalian
nervous systems, I cannot see how the phenomenon of
hypnosis can be understood at all, not one speck of it. But if we

Sorry for the wait

fully realize that consciousness is a culturally learned event,
balanced over the suppressed vestiges of an earlier mentality,
then we can see that consciousness, in part, can be culturally
unlearned or arrested. Learned features, such as analog ‘I,’ can
under the proper cultural imperative be taken over by a different
initiative, and one such instance is what we call hypnosis. The
reason that that different initiative works in conjunction with the
other factors of the diminishing consciousness of the induction
and trance is that in some way it engages a paradigm of an older
mentality than subjective consciousness.
Objection: Does Hypnosis Exist?
Finally, I should briefly refer to possible alternative interpretations.
But presently there are not so much theories of hypnosis
as points of view, each correct as far as it goes. One view insists
that imagination and concentration on what the hypnotist suggests,
and the tendency of such an imagination to result in conforming
action, are important.20 They are. Another, that it is
condition of monomotivation that counts.21 Of course, that is a
description. Another states that the basic phenomenon is simply
the ability to enact different roles, the as-if nature of most hypnotic
performances.22 This certainly is true. Another correctly
stresses the dissociation.23 Another that hypnosis is a regression
to a childlike relation to a parent.24 And indeed this is often how

Abnormal and Social Psychology, 1946, 41 : 107-128.

and Social Psychology, 1941, 16:477-505.

recent paper with Milton Anderson "Role-Theoretical Analysis of Hypnotic Behavior,"
in J. E. Gordon.

24 One of two psychoanalytic interpretations of hypnosis. See for example Merton
M. Gill and Margaret Brenman, Hypnosis and Related States (New York: International
Universities Press, 1959). The other, that hypnosis is a love relationship
between operator and subject, is no longer taken seriously.

any vestige of the bicameral mind appears, since the bicameral
mind itself is based on such admonitory experience.
But the main theoretical controversy — and it is a continuing
one, and the one that is most important for us here — is whether
or not hypnosis is really anything different from what happens
every day in the normal state. For if this view is final, my
interpretation in this chapter of a different mentality is utterly
wrong. Hypnosis cannot be a vestige of anything since it does not
really exist. All the manifestations of hypnosis, this position
insists, can be shown to be simply exaggerations of normal phenomena.
We can tick them off:
As for the kind of obedience to the operator, all of us do the
same thing without thinking in situations that are so definedy as
with a teacher or a traffic policeman, or perhaps the caller at a
square dance.
As to such phenomena as suggested deafness, everyone has
had the experience of 'listening' carefully to another person and
yet not hearing a word. And so the mother who sleeps through a
thunderstorm and yet hears and wakes to the cry of her baby is
not engaging a different mechanism from that of the hypnotized
subject who hears only the hypnotist's voice and is asleep to all
else.
As for the induced amnesia which so astonishes an observer,
who can remember what he was thinking five minutes ago? You
must suggest to yourself a set or struction to remember at the
time. And this the operator of the present day can do or not do,
negating or enhancing the paraphrand of submersion, so that the
subject does or does not remember.
As for the suggested paralysis under hypnosis, who has not
been in discussion with a friend during a walk until, becoming
more and more absorbed, both walk more slowly until you are
standing still? Concentrated attention has meant arrest of
movement.
As for hypnotic anesthesia, that most remarkable of hypnotic
phenomena, who has not seen a hurt child distracted by a toy
until the crying stops and the pain is forgotten? Or known of
victims of accidents bleeding from unfelt wounds? And acupuncture
may indeed be a related phenomenon.
And as for the "hidden observer," this kind of parallel processing
goes on all the time. In ordinary conversation, we listen to
someone and plan what we are going to say at the same time.
And actors do this constantly, always acting as their own hidden
observers; Stanislavski to the contrary, they are always able to
criticize their performances. And many of the examples of nonconscious
thought in I.1, or my description of driving a car and
conversing which opened I.4, are further instances.
And as for the startling success of post-hypnotic suggestion, we
all sometimes decide to react to some event in a certain way and
then do so, even forgetting our prior reason. It is really not
different from 'pre-hypnotic suggestion', as in the supposed paralysis
of the dominant hand a few pages ago. It is a structuring of
the collective cognitive imperative that can predetermine our
reactions in very specific ways.
And so for other remarkable feats performed under hypnosis j
all are exaggerations of everyday phenomena. Hypnosis, the
argument runs, just seems different to an observer. The trance
behavior is simply intense concentration as in the proverbial
"absent-minded professor." Indeed a host of recent experiments
have been aimed at showing that all hypnotic phenomena can be
duplicated in waking subjects by simple suggestion.25
My reply, and it is the reply of others as well, is that this is not
explaining hypnosis. It is explaining it away. Even though all of
the phenomena of hypnosis can be duplicated in ordinary life
(and I do not think they can), hypnosis can still be defined by
distinct procedures, distinct susceptibilities which correlate with
25 The most prominent and untiring researcher with this view is Theodore X.
Barber. For Barber, "hypnosis" just does not exist as a state different from waking
life, and the term should therefore always be written with quotation marks. Among
his numerous papers, see his "Experimental Analysis of 'Hypnotic' Behavior: Review
of Recent Empirical Findings," Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 1965, 70: 132-154.

other experiences as well as other vestiges of the bicameral mind,
and by huge differences in the ease with which hypnotic phenomena
can be reproduced with and without hypnotic induction. In
any speculation about possible future changes in our mentality,
this latter difference is extremely important. That is why I began
this chapter as I did. If we are asked to be animals, five-year-olds,
painless when pricked, color-blind, cataleptic, or show nystagmus
to imagined whirlings of the visual field,26 or to taste vinegar as
champagne — it is enormously more difficult to do in our normal
state of consciousness than when ordinary consciousness is absent
under hypnosis. Such feats without rapport with an operator
require grotesque efforts of persuasion and massive burdens
of concentration. The full consciousness of the waking state
seems itself like a huge wilderness of distracting closenesses that
cannot easily be crossed to catch into such immediate control.
Try looking out the window and pretending to be red-green colorblind
to such an extent that those colors really do look like shades
of gray.27 It can be done to a certain extent, but it is much easier
under hypnosis. Or get up now from where you are sitting and
act like a bird, flapping your arms and emitting strange calls for
for the next fifteen minutes, something easy to do under hypnosis.
But there is not one reader of that last sentence who can
do it — if he is alone. Whatever those sweaty feelings of foolishness
or silliness are, the why-should-I5s and the this-is-absurd's,
they crowd in like careful tyrants jealous as a god of such a
performance; you need the permission of a group, the authoriza-
26 J. P. Brady and E. Levitt, "Nystagmus as a Criterion of Hypnotically Induced
Visual Hallucinations," Science, 1964, 146: 85-86. But I do not agree with the
authors that this proves the existence of true hallucinations.
27 Normal subjects asked to respond to the Ishihara color-blindness test by trying
not to see the color red and then by trying not to see green read some of the Ishihara
cards in the manner expected from individuals with red or green color-blindness. This
was shown by Theoder X. Barber and D. C. Deeley, "Experimental Evidence for a
Theory of Hypnotic Behavior: I. 'Hypnotic Color-Blindness' without 'Hypnosis',"
International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, 1961, 9: 79-86. But
under hypnosis this pseudo-color-blindness is easier to obtain, as in Milton Erickson's
"The Induction of Color-Blindness by a Technique of Hypnotic Suggestion," Journal
of General Psychology, 1939, 20: 61-89.

tion of a collective imperative as well as the command of an
operator — or a god — to achieve such obedience. Or put your
hands on the table in front of you and make one of them distinctly
redder; possible for you to do now, but much easier under
hypnosis. Or raise both your hands for fifteen minutes without
feeling any discomfort, a simple task under hypnosis but onerous
without it.
What is it then that hypnosis supplies that does this extraordinary
enabling, that allows us to do things we cannot ordinarily do
except with great difficulty? Or is it ‘we’ that do them? Indeed,
in hypnosis it is as if someone else were doing things through us.
And why is this so? And why is this easier? Is it that we have to
lose our conscious selves to gain such control, which cannot then
be by us?
On another level, why is it that in our daily lives we cannot get
up above ourselves to authorize ourselves into being what we
really wish to be? If under hypnosis we can be changed in
identity and action, why not in and by ourselves so that behavior
flows from decision with as absolute a connection, so that whatever
in us it is that we refer to as will stands master and captain
over action with as sovereign a hand as the operator over a subject?
The answer here is partly in the limitations of our learned
consciousness in this present millennium. We need some vestige
of the bicameral mind, our former method of control, to help us.
With consciousness we have given up those simpler more absolute
methods of control of behavior which characterized the
bicameral mind. We live in a buzzing cloud of whys and wherefores,
the purposes and reasonings of our narratizations, the
many-routed adventures of our analog ‘I’s. And this constant
spinning out of possibilities is precisely what is necessary to save
us from behavior of too impulsive a sort. The analog ‘I’ and the
metaphor ‘me’ are always resting at the confluence of many
collective cognitive imperatives. We know too much to command
ourselves very far.
