What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is a type of PERSUASION. Hypnosis is the PERSUASION of a person with an UNSTABLE MIND. An unstable mind is a mind that is unreliable because of a given person’s longtime moral inconsistency. Moral inconsistency is alternating between doing good and doing evil rather than always doing good or always doing evil.
Now, all of the above leads to the following conclusions:
- Hypnotizing is not penetrating a person’s mind with some mysterious force.
- Not everyone can be hypnotized because not everyone has an unstable mind.
- A hypnotist has no special power to control another person’s mind.
- A hypnotist takes advantage of the weakened mental condition of the person he is hypnotizing (persuading).
- Hypnotists are liars because they claim to have some special power to control another person’s mind.
- Hypnotism is not possible because of some power possessed by the hypnotist.
- Hypnotism is possible because of some power NOT possessed by the person being hypnotized (persuaded).
