    I still sceptical because here, in Indonesia, hypnotizing people can turn out to be crime act. They makes the victim suddenly unconscious and pick their pocket. But, is that really possible and not a kind of black magic? Although, I'm not sure, I've never been hypnotized.

    So I can hypnotize my wife to bring my dinner while I am watching football on TV and bring a beer when I need one? Also to mow the yard?

    Around 1979, "The Amazing Kreskin" tried to hypnotize me and 4 others on stage. It failed to work on me and I was told to return to my seat. Could it be because I'm a High Functioning Autistic?

    My mom tried everything besides medication to help with my ADD. And when I went to the hypnotist she found it failed miserably. I guess this is why but the medication worked great.

    I’m a hypnotist and I agree with some of the stuff but you can just say subconscious state of mind that’s how me and a few of my hypno friends hypnotize ppl by say subconscious mind

    Where do I sign up? I want to forget everything about the Harry Potter☇ books, so I can read and enjoy them again like the first time. I can then schedule myself in for more hypnosis – say once a month – read Harry Potter☇ again and again, and live the rest of my life as a happy little muggle 🤓

    I was hypnotized into thinking Osama Bin Laden did 9/11. As a side effect I consider Mezmers greatest ti be System Of A Down. But in all seriousness you could propably hypnotize Soviet Russia into telling jokes about Yakov Smirnoff with litte practise. Research the truth about what's happening in New Zealand. The sheep are not what they seem!!

    Human cognition is so extensive. We have yet to understand how reality is created in the human mind. People will believe alternative facts because so much emotion creates a false sense of reality. Some examples I can think of; cult, conspiracy theory, or religion to name a few. So much of the population in any society at any given point in history is suggestible that it would be easy to start a conspiracy theory, cult, or even a religion. All you need is critical mass and you can have any reality imaginable for most of any population. So how is reality constructed in the human mind? Hypnosis, I think is component of this mechanism.

    I personally think it must be a altered mental state. i had a friend who could be hypnotized really easily. My friends and I were able to do it to him just using a flashlight in a dark room without saying anything to him. we never tried to make him do anything but once in the trance he would just sit their staring forward and not reacting to anything around him. we could poke him with needles and he would not react.

    We learned a bit about Hypnosis in 2nd year neuroscience. Our lecturer made it clear to us that "You cannot hypnotise someone to do something that they wouldn't ordinarily do/ behave outside their normal range of behaviours." Naturally, my first question to her after the lecture ended was "So- for example- if person 'x' is NOT a bank robber, you can't hypnotise them into robbing a bank. But can you hypnotise this same person into believing that robbing a bank is a normal behaviour for them, eventually allowing you to hypnotise them into robbing a bank?" Unfortunately, she didn't know the answer to such a question.

    Doesn’t that mean hypnosis works for those that are highly suggestible?

    It's a distinct state. For me, completely aware, total focus. I agree, on the unsuspecting patient, it could be used in ill-ways. However, to treat psychological trauma by a professional can be invaluable if one is a candidate. I have had great success.

    I think the key is people figured it out before Mesmer, it just was not westernized and packaged before that. Many states are aquired with varying degrees of focus or lack thereof. I think it is our own points of view that truly hide knowledge, yes?

    hypnosis might be a state where consciousness and subconsciousness of a person meets. xD hence you somewhat need to be willing for it to work, but when (and if) its a success, it just works. at least for people that are susceptible to it. i'm not, tried many times, guy that tried to put me into hypnosis said, that my brain is too focused and i'm too skeptical, to let go.

    Nice video, but you got some numbers wrong: any person can be 'hypnotized', i.e. being in an altered state, it's just that different people require different ways of inducing a trance state. Just like any normal curve, you'd have a minority of those who are extremely suggestible at one end and another one at the opposite; there may be a few of them who'd be even harder students than all the rest, but nevertheless, it's all a matter of perception, and how it changes. Just like driving while talking on the car phone; this is how our minds work 🙂

    You have to relax and allow it to happen. I've been regressed; quite an amazing and rejuvenating experience. "a focussed psychological phase"!
    It's going to be scary when they really figure out the brain, they will be able to readily program everyone, to do as they need them to do.
