Hypnosis is officially recognized and widely used, but in terms of its popularity it is only slightly ahead of speculation about flying saucers or about ghosts. Practical hypnosis.
As a child, I had a dream to become a hypnotist. Imagine, I am in a black tailcoat and top hat, with the help of a gaze and magical passes I capture the mind and will of the admiring spectators … Actually, I had a more practical and stocky idea. I wanted to go through hypnosis without a ticket to movies and buy (free) ice cream. To be honest, with this I just had no problems. My mom sold ice cream at the cinema, watching any (new) movies for free, attending performances by touring artists of any genre, and eating melted and substandard ice cream was my frank duty. In general, I did not stop watching new films, but later I began to eat ice cream only in especially exceptional cases.
Actually, the conversation is not about ice cream, but about hypnosis. So my first pseudo-scientific experiments on the technology of using hypnosis turned out to be very interesting, instructive and contradictory. My gaze and imperceptible, magical passes with my hands on the saleswomen had no effect. I didn’t get any extra change, moreover, they openly cheated me or even forgot about change for me. In other cinemas, controllers of free riders and novice hypnotists, too, were kicked out of the queue, by some miracle, calculating them in any flea market.
Of course, I did not begin to get to all the intricacies of the science of hypnosis on my own. You can always use the experience of previous naturalists, for example, from their books. And I've read everything I can about hypnosis. As it turned out, in addition to variety (circus) hypnosis, there is also medical hypnosis. This hypnosis is taught to almost all third-year medical students. The technique of hypnosis (for doctors) is considered not particularly serious and after a maximum of twenty theoretical academic hours it deserves only credit from the students being trained.
Naturally, after such training, doctors unequivocally believe in the existence of hypnosis (how, how did they pass it), however, they prefer to refrain from practical use (after the test, they forgot everything), despite the many advantages of hypnosis over other methods in the treatment of diseases. Well, those who nevertheless use hypnosis to treat patients are considered, even by doctors, a special case. It was the leading medical workers who decided that only a doctor can hypnotize people. No matter what specialization and experience, for all other mortals, hypnotizing people is a criminal act. That's right, if doctors do not know about this phenomenon, then what do mere mortals know about this?
But what a discrepancy, it's me about the forgotten change in stores, there are also some or some unaccounted for methods and types of hypnosis. For example, in a store, a saleswoman without a hypnotic glance, without magical passes, easily weighs and cheats her customer. Gypsies at the station square take all the money from a random business traveler who voluntarily gives this money. Or even thousands of volunteer soldiers, enthusiastically and on the orders of their commander, go to the enemy's cannons and machine guns. With their bodies lying on the barbed wire or covering the embrasures of enemy machine guns with their bodies.
In this case, I'm just trying to understand the cause and effect of the phenomenon. I understand that heroic and inevitable death in front of thousands of companions is much better than the title of “missing person” after a direct hit of a shell into a crowd on the same field. The hero's family and relatives will not suffer. But why does a traveler at the station give all his money to someone who does not know and why? And why did each of us, more than once forgive sellers and unfinished delivery, and not a quality product? They forgave their bosses forgiving, did not notice the rudeness of officials …? Is it a temporary, quite common blackout in our brains, or is it a targeted and deliberate hypnotic effect on our brains of ordinary sellers?
It turns out, in addition to theatrical and medical hypnosis, there is also purely practical, everyday hypnosis on the effect on the consciousness, subconsciousness and on the psyche of a person or a group of people.
When it dawned on me that I had accidentally and on my own come to the conclusion that group hypnosis was possible, I was stunned. But it turned out that group hypnosis is well known even from a scientific point of view, and group hypnosis is much more effective even where hypnosis with loners is not possible at all. For example, try to send a soldier alone to an enemy machine gun under bullets, most likely it will not work. But a platoon, company, regiment, division can be easily sent, and the larger the number of military units, the easier it will be to do it.
For simplicity of experiment, try to command your subordinates by yourself. For example, make him walk at a marching pace in the nearest square. Most likely, he will send his commander to hell, but a team of several dozen of the most arrogant and freedom-loving subordinates will no longer refuse to march in formation for the amusement of their commander and the random audience. It will be even easier to command if you appoint intermediate (between you and a group of subordinates) commanders.
Someone will ask: "What does hypnosis have to do with it?" and this question will be correct, timely and to the point.
Let me explain, but first you have to answer the question: "What is hypnosis in general?"
-Influence on the subconscious?
-Impact on the psyche?
-Influence on will?
-Or the suggestion of your will? The answers and assumptions can be continued indefinitely, it would be nice if one of these assumptions turned out to be really true. According to science, there are several options for the state of the hypnotized after the influence of the hypnotist. The highest stage is when the hypnotized person becomes like a wax doll, falls into a daze and does not react to extraneous stimuli. More precisely, it does not respond to some stimuli, but reacts to some stimuli much better than in the usual state. This is what pop and medical hypnotists use, forcing the subjects with their actions to make the audience laugh or give up smoking and alcohol.
Do you know that any living creature (on our planet) can be hypnotized or made to fall into a hypnotic stupor? Insects, reptiles, mammals, birds, fish … Do you want to know how? No problem mmmmm. There are countless options for animal hypnosis, but the approach should be strictly individual.
Hypnotizing the frog (toad): Put the frog on its bottom, lean its back against the wall, fold its legs "in Turkish" and that's it. The frog can be burned with a cigarette, pricked with needles, and left unattended. The frog will not move on any irritation, it will dry out under the sun and will not run away anywhere. But one has only to return the frog to its normal position and it will immediately wish to gallop away from its fanatic.
Hypnotizing a chicken or any other bird: Lay the bird and its head on its side and draw a perpendicular line relative to the bird's beak. You can use chalk, or you can just use your finger. After such an impact, the chicken lies on its side for a long time, but with injections and other influences-irritations it is quite easy to get out of the stupor.
Hypnotizing the fish: We grab the (live) fish and turn it belly upside down. After a few seconds of motionless holding, the fish also falls into a daze.
There are known methods of hypnosis and many other animals. In addition to contact methods, there are also non-contact methods of hypnosis. This is when animals, for example dangerous (large snakes, crocodiles, hippos, bulls, moose …) and safe ones, are also hypnotized from a fairly safe distance. This is not a myth or fairy tales, but often such hypnosis is possible with a specific animal only once, in strictly specific conditions and not with every animal, this hypnosis is obtained, therefore it is simply pointless to teach such hypnosis. There are also directly opposite results - exceptions, when the same actions of the hypnotist cause the same animal to fall into torpor every time, but this effect does not affect other similar animals at all.
I'll make a reservation right away that the above methods are well known and have been tested more than once, described in popular and purely scientific literature, but in some cases they may not work. The essence of this "Hypnosis" is to create extraordinary conditions for the animal. The same frog in its ordinary life does not sit in Turkish style, but for fish: burbot, loach and eel, the belly up position may turn out to be quite familiar and the trick with hypnosis will fail. For different animals, the same method may also not be suitable, for example, for a domestic cat, almost any position (of its body) in space is relatively comfortable, but a cat, nevertheless, is quite possible to hypnotize.
But! Hypnotizing only for immobilization or temporary numbness of animals can be somehow understood, for a person (or a group of people) this is often not enough. Something more is expected of hypnotized people.
For example, any person in a state of hypnosis turns out to be, to put it mildly, not like the same person in an ordinary state. Under hypnosis, a person displays qualities that the same person can often only dream of. For example, to professionally play musical instruments, the names of which in ordinary life he does not always know. To speak (and translate) in unknown (to him in ordinary life) languages. Draw pictures, talk about the affairs of a long time ago, when he (and his parents, too) were not yet in the project, predict the distant and not very distant future.
For example, I personally knew about Brezhnev's death in 1983 back in 1978, but the source, although it was associated with hypnosis, is a special case and a special story. Many revelations received from hypnotized people often do not fit into possible reality, but they are quite real given several possible, parallel paths of development of the history of all mankind.
More details on this. If you remember in the fantastic film "Total Recall" with the main character Schwarzenegger, the main character went to a company where he was offered a trip in a dream under hypnosis for a small fee. Such fantastic journeys can be made today. Impressions after awakening will be the most real. To do this, the hypnotist does not even need to be a science fiction writer, the hypnotized one himself invents and sees exactly what he wants to the best of his imagination and education. For example, one will visit the temples of knowledge of the entire universe, while the other will, out of habit, taste intoxicating drinks (gases or something else) in the company of local residents … To each his own. The hypnotist simply has to put the hypnotized person into a state of hypnosis, and then be aware of this journey, that is, maintain verbal contact, correct individual or dangerous moments, bring in the necessary adventures (in verbal form) as needed and wake up the hypnotized person in time (correctly).
Feelings after such "travel" as from actual travel and adventure. A person understands well that everything he has experienced was just a dream, but in secret from everyone he is looking for hidden (in a dream) flowers from Mars, the dagger of Tutankhamun himself or the magic wand of the priests from Titan. Although, of course, she perfectly understands that such a reality is still simply impossible. However, a person believes himself "a little" more than the very convincing evidence of others. Still, he's just from Mars (Venus), and envious people are rubbing his ears here.
I once met by chance a woman whom I once "helped" to travel like this across Mars, Paris, etc. I then, out of drunkenness, decided to show a hypnosis session in a small and unfamiliar company. Several years have passed, we (with this woman) met in a foreign city for both, the meeting was short, but the woman was with the same claims to me: "But all the same, you stole the stones (precious and from Mars)." The woman smiled at me sweetly, but in her eyes I was still a thief and a vile bastard. And I still cannot understand what kind of pebbles she dreamed about then and why she then finally quarreled with the rest of her acquaintances, including her friends. Apparently she still hoped that I would somehow share with her.
So, the hypnotized one and the same period of time can "live" during several sessions under hypnosis in different conditions. That is, in different families (with other wives (husbands), parents and children), in different city-states and with different political situations in a particular state. You can attribute this to the fantasy of the hypnotized, but let's remember our lived life. The development of technology, a change in social values and an increase in the standard of living. Reality often far outstrips our fantasy. Consequently, for some reason, the future history of mankind can really go in different ways and a person under hypnosis can experience several options for his (just?) Possible life. Remember yourself, sometimes everything is so real in a dream, but when you wake up, everything you see in a dream seems like sheer stupidity with continuous inconsistencies and inconsistencies.
There is also a type of hypnosis, when a hypnotized person or a group of hypnotized people can see a picture suggested by the hypnotist without falling into a state of numbness. Variants are possible. Some conditions are instilled in a crowd of people and the crowd (group) performs acts that are simply impossible for each specific person (in this crowd).
So what is hypnosis? If specifically for a person, then this is a phenomenon when the hypnotized person becomes, in one way or another, an obedient instrument in the hands of the hypnotist.
Professor Charcot demonstrates hypnosis on a "hysterical" patient, "Blanche" (Marie) Whitman. If this is the case, then hypnosis with the numbness of the hypnotized is just one of the possible hypnosis options. Consequently, any mass manifestation of non-standard behavior of people is very possibly somehow connected with hypnosis. And there is nothing surprising in this. It turns out that it is possible in advance and gradually - to gradually prepare the hypnotized (or hypnotized) for the forthcoming hypnosis session in the distant future, or to expect from them some necessary actions, without some hypnotic stupor. The authorities usually "sin" with "isms" with such technologies of fooling their people. The people in these countries usually die out from hunger, malnutrition or massive repression, but each member of this kingdom-state is ready to give his life (his own and the lives of neighbors) for the continuation of this outrage, and especially for the main "Hypnotist". Specifically, then YOU yourself didn’t let a secret tear when you saw the dashing warriors passing by in the ranks, striking a step? And how, at that moment, did you want to be in this very formation yourself, and it doesn't matter where and why? The main thing is together and do not care about the consequences.
Preliminary hypnosis does not contradict purely scientific, official information about hypnosis. Indeed, it is much easier for a hypnotist to hypnotize all those who were already under his hypnosis, and the more sessions of hypnosis there were, the easier and faster it is possible to hypnotize the hypnotized.
You can also, under hypnosis, instill in the hypnotized a word code or expression, after pronouncing which the hypnotized person falls into a state of hypnosis or executes almost any predetermined order. Why almost anyone? This is because a person even under hypnosis tries not to stain his conscience. But for a skilled hypnotist, this "trifle with a conscience" of the hypnotized is not a problem.
Women are best hypnotized, and it is women who are more down-to-earth than men. Of course, everything is relative, there are exceptions. Women better predict their own and others' true future under classical hypnosis (in a dream and with numbness). Women have fewer options for a possible parallel future.
Although, to speak frankly and if you believe the words of people under hypnosis, then people remember past and future lives. Where in another life women become men and men become women. Gender and time do not matter anymore. Accuracy and logic harmoniously coexist with feelings and sentimentality. I really want to believe that life is endless, each time in a different form, in a different form, in a different time. Where the future may be in the distant past, and the past may be an unimaginably distant future.
It looks like the frank delirium of the insane. "The sleep of reason gives rise to monsters" - so said the ancients. Perhaps the ancients had fewer brakes in scientific circles and scientists of antiquity sometimes described their observations without looking back at the dissenting opinions of the scientific authorities of their time. At first, everything unknown seems to be nonsense, but over time and with new knowledge, everything becomes clear and logical. Sometime in the future, perhaps, the riddles with rebirths of souls, the movement of these souls in time and parallel lives will still be solved. Well, we will leave these studies and riddles to solve for armchair scientists.
There is also a type of hypnosis called self-hypnosis, this is when the hypnotized himself and the hypnotist. A convenient thing for self-improvement, but "a little" dangerous. There is also enough blatant devilry and nonsense, or rather, even more, and out of habit you can simply go crazy. But self-hypnosis sharply increases the inner capabilities of a person.
Direct hypnosis (without numbness and sleep) is sometimes called suggestion. This is aerobatics for hypnotists - the pros. There are only a few such official specialists in any country, but the most surprising thing is that this is the most common practice among gypsies from train stations, experienced sellers, major politicians and military leaders. Truly, the great and the unknown suddenly meets the low and ordinary. Great to ridiculous is less than a step.
But in fact there are no special secrets here either. And if you were interested in learning how to hypnotize a crocodile, then you will probably be interested in learning the technology of preliminary hypnotizing people or instilling some ideas on the people of an entire state.
Everything has been known for a long time. The technology of preliminary mass hypnosis is quite simple. By the way, the "little things with a conscience" of an individual in mass hypnosis, the hypnotist may no longer worry. Mass hypnosis is good because all hypnotized (under the pressure of society) forget about their own conscience and honor.
Here's an example: The older generation of Russian residents remembers the May Day and November demonstrations. The question is why these expensive measures were needed for the state as a whole. Was it not possible to spend public funds for more needed purposes? It turns out that these demonstrations rallied the integrity of the collectives, prepared thousands of people at once to act and think in the same way, and at the same time, in this system, they identified dissidents. Do you remember how it happened? Employees of enterprises from all parts of the city and on their own (on foot) moved to the central, city square. The columns moved unhurriedly, the demonstrators warmed up with alcohol, arranged dances and choral singing. Those who did not participate in collective events could be seen from afar. All stood together in anticipation of the passage of other columns, all ran together, catching up or closing the distance between the columns. In a single formation, both the chiefs and the subordinates turned out to be equal and were visible, in their essence, with the naked eye. Any statement, anecdote, joke and even gesture became common knowledge. Party workers ran along the line with megaphones or horns, commanded the advance of the columns, collected information (reports) from their subordinates. We talked with some of the employees of our company. And after the demonstrations, the party workers drew up long reports to the higher authorities with the corresponding lists, comments and specific proposals. This often influenced the careers and salaries of many of those who attended the demonstrations.
So in the general system people are weaned from their own individuality and taught to obey someone else's will. Anyone who often had to walk in formation remembers that there are no individuals in the formation. There is a tiny particle of the order that must be the same as everyone else. Everybody goes and you go. Everyone is standing and you are. Everyone rejoices and you rejoice. Everybody shouts hurray and you shout. Everybody stigmatizes renegades - dissidents, and you have your say. Throw mud at the freethinkers who urge them to go their own way. All in the ranks are linked by one goal and one chain. Even if you did something against your will or conscience, then in the ranks it is not scary. In our defense, we can say that everyone would have done this. And you are not ashamed to look other people in the eye, even after the most disgusting - filthy act. You won't go against everyone. And then suddenly it turns out that everyone was also against it, but everyone did exactly what they ordered from above.
So, it is easiest to keep the crowd in obedience in the ranks, forcing them to walk "in step" and especially commanding the direction of movement from time to time: "Left, left!" Or: "Kru-gom!" and "Nale-vo!" They go in formation in the army, and in prisons, and in concentration camps. Growing up youth, in any country, first learn to walk in formation in kindergartens and pioneer camps … You can carry out a portion of preliminary hypnosis and simply knock the growing youth into groups and flocks of the same interests, with strict discipline, for example, like an organized crime group (organized crime group). When the USSR collapsed, pioneer and Komsomol organizations disappeared, organized crime groups immediately appeared, in every district and almost on every street. Personally, I somehow do not believe that all these groups arose spontaneously and by pure chance. Foreign delights have nothing to do with it either, foreign capitalists cannot stifle our nascent businessman with their hands. Here only their own were to blame. Surely, domestic specialists already had a lot of experience in stupefying the masses to this phenomenon. Although the groups were criminal, the specialists clearly had nothing to do with criminals. Criminals cannot reach this level, there is already a smell of academic research at the state level, and criminals, as always, were used for the provided small benefits. Apparently connected by one goal and one chain are always needed, that is, crowds of people who have already undergone preliminary mental training are always needed. And these crowds always are and will be. To put it in a very simplified way, it is enough to say the word-password to this crowd and the crowd will fulfill any order, regardless of their conscience. In any case, it is not difficult for a trained “hypnotist” to push any crowd to “unpopular actions”.
Conclusion: Hypnosis is a simple and very effective means of influencing people and animals for private or public practical interests. Hypnosis is officially recognized and widely used, but in terms of its popularity it is only slightly ahead of speculation about flying saucers or about ghosts.
I never became a hypnotist, somehow I lived my life mainly following other people's commands, always minted a step in some order, equaled zero with a minus and voted (like everyone else) often against my conscience. Half of his life considered red to be white, and white to be red. Everything that I have achieved in my life turned out to be benefits from the same system in which I spent all my life and which still “confuses” the colors of reality. That is, this is what my (our) great commanders allowed me (like everyone else) - hypnotists, ideological color-blind people. And in an amicable way, I envy those who got out of any general order in time, saw the light with their own eyes and now has what they deserved, and not what they served, having slightly tinted them in advance, having bitten them and slobbering hard.
