    You have any interesting URLs re psi activity demonstrated during hypnosis?

    Here is one,but there are 34 million choices on a google of "psi activity hypnosis"!

    I think more likely that hypnosis and recall have something in common.
    Recalling incidents can require strong concentration.

    I'm sure you remember the OJ trial and the infamous Rosa Lopez.... "No requerdo nada." What we can hope for with Tommy is Ray getting under his skin and him mouthing off.

    Once his deposition date is confirmed, Tommy will be getting a care package in the mail from me. :)

    It was a description of an experiment to attempt hypnosis at a distance.
    I don't recall which book, I believe it was Estabrooks though.
    The target was in a room, and knew this was going to occur.
    The hypnotist and his assistant, the one with the pretty legs (just kidding)
    were in a room two offices away, on the same floor.
    They directed their attention towards the man in the room.
    He did not respond at all... but a secretary of another professor,
    in the room directly behind the target, one office further did.
    Responding to the hypnotists commands.
    They could not replicate this routinely it seemed hit or miss,
    somewhat like supposed "OT" abilities eh?

    Frankly that smells like denial, but I understand the tenacity to align observed phenomena with the ideas that keep one's boat afloat.

    Anything that causes strong concentration is described as trance inducing - as facilitating hypnosis.

    Now that really perks my interest, and leads to thoughts on focused attention and being 'in session' along with F/N and the uhmm 'emotion' and mental
    state of 'keyout'./euphoria. Apparently a realm with great potential for pitfalls, scams, believed thetans, bullshit, or if more honestly explored without a boat to float, greater understanding and perhaps tools for better living and NO that better living is NOT ABLE's expanding_the_CON ...version.

    Possibilities :

    I may have to pick up and finish that book I started reading in 1971 by Charles T Tart "Altered states of consciousness"

    even if what induces the will to concentrate is nothing more than yet more science fiction..
  8. A coup against Miscavige is impossible, he's the sole owner of Scientology, all he has to do is tell they to leave his property or call the police to have them removed

    Having read very little re trance and hypnosis I compared the data with what I've experienced.

    This seems to be an orthodox view in this field. But how does it apply to those
    who are difficult or impossible to hypnotixe?

    "When you hear the word hypnotist, what comes to mind? If you’re like many people, the word may conjure up images of a sinister stage-villain who brings about a hypnotic state by swinging a pocket watch back and forth.

    In reality, real hypnosis bears little resemblance to these stereotyped images. According to John Kihlstrom, "The hypnotist does not hypnotize the individual. Rather, the hypnotist serves as a sort of coach or tutor whose job is to help the person become hypnotized"2 While hypnosis is often described as a sleep-like trance state, it is better expressed as a state characterized by focused attention, heightened suggestibility and vivid fantasies."
