I've been "hypnotized" before but it really didn't work on me. I was kind of embarrassed for the guy who tried to put me under, because he definitely didn't put me under a trance like state. Some people are more susceptible to hypnotic suggestions. In college, I had a physics professor that hypnotized the class. Only a small percentage succumbed to his suggestions.

If I recall correctly, he said people can take themselves out of a hypnotic trance. It's supposedly like driving down a highway and how you forget the past 20 miles because your mind was focused so much on the road. You really don't lose all Considering these were high school kids, I wonder if they were pretending not to be able to come out of their trance like state. Maybe they wanted to prolong the show so they didn't have to go back to class.

I believe he means he would be having much sex with them.




But I could be wrong...as that would be against Jesus.

If this is the effect of a hypnotist on children and they said they're especially vulnerable, then that is just even more reason for children to be potentially damaged and indoctrinated by television. TV and movies are not exactly the same as this, but their minds are very open to suggestion, and TV/movies/YouTube provides plenty of that.

You can really compare children to animals. If you don't "train" them your way, someone else will train them their way. It's probably going to be the marketers. Most parents don't mind that, though, as long as little Jimmy or Susie is quiet. Such a shame, to shove your kids in front of a TV and have it corrupt their minds.

Almost this exact same story was told to me by my former Psychology professor. We had a section of the course devoted to hypnosis, mass hysteria, etc. During his PhD training, a bunch of his friends wanted him to show them some hypnosis tricks. He found that, after embarrassing his subject enough, that he couldn't get him to pull out either. The same thing in this story above happened here. He called one of his professors, and after a few tries, was able to wake him up.

He summed this up by telling us that he would never do hypnosis for entertainment again, and we should be wary of performers that do. You never know what trigger they could leave implanted, whether because they're unskilled or for more malicious reasons.

It is really more than a bit scary that someone can put you under, but have difficulty bringing you out again. This would make me think that it would then be semi plausible to assume that there is a slim chance that one could stay under permanently? I don't know enough about it to know if that is remotely possible, but it does creep one out to know that a replacement needed to be called in.


It is impossible for you to stay under hypnosis permanently.

I also highly doubt this story (as a hypnotist myself) if this happened exactly as they are saying then the hypnotist should not be doing shows yet as he lacks practice.

When people go under they can enjoy it so or simply need rest so much that they will not respond to you bringing them back out of it.
In the event this happens, all the hypnotist has to do is chance their tactics with what they are saying, even if that does not work which is highly unlikely. Whispering into their ears something a bit more shocking will certainly jolt them out of it as a last ditch attempt, the reason I say last ditch attempt is because it might feel unpleasant or a bit unpleasant to the person under hypnosis.

If somehow you cannot get anyone out of the hypnosis for whatever reasons, the person will come out of it naturally the same as anyone does after a good sleep.

The worst thing any hypnotist can do at a show in my opinion is panic like this guy did and he should not be anywhere near a person under 18 years old either.

How long have you trained your children with Internet porn instead of letting them watch TV?

The girls were acting. Hypnosis is not real and does not work. The way it works is by convincing you that it is real- these girls were just attention whores.

Untrue untrue untrue. Hypnosis has been used as a highly effective alternative to medication and anesthesia. Lots of proof on the interwebs. Here's a few:

Same thing with Remote Viewers. Attention whores. All of them.

Your mind makes it real.
And that's all that matters.

there's nothing harmful about hypnosis unless the author has bad intentions to use his hypnotised subjects to perform illegal or acts they wouldnt perform with their own will or are staunchly against.

hypnosis however is something all need to learn to do to themselves. self hypnosis. and again.. it is not harmful to be hypnotized. no matter how young. but understandable that since many do not understand the true nature of the science there would be panic from the adults less informed and uneducated on the subject.

mastering hypnosis one can hypnotize themselves out of depression, and even cure ailments and pain within the body. The same effect can be had by gaining spiritual realization and using your spiritual will to do the same things manually. so .. they are connected. and quite possibly one and the same.. self hypnosis being a precursor to realization.

I could believe one, maybe two pupils in a given student body having a difficult time coming out of a hypnotized state, but any more than that seems like copycats. Seriously, this reminds me of something my girlfriends and I would have pulled in high-school to, like you said, get out of class.

As far as hypnosis i have never seen it work in front of me so as far as i am concerned its not as black and white as it is typically shown everywhere.

I saw a live hypnosis show a few years ago... and I was very surprised because it was exactly like you see on TV (it worked on about 50% of the people who volunteered), and you could easily tell it was real because his subjects were making complete fools of themselves. There's no doubt about it, hypnotism is real and very effective when done properly. I think the main reason for the trouble in this case was a mix of reasons, the two main reasons being these were very young and impressionable girls, and the hypnotist sounds like he was very amateur... not a good mix really.

Yes... "attractive"...


I suppose at a private girls school there isn't much eye candy around...

What about what Keith Barry did in one of his shows on Discovery, where he tested the theory whether CIA sleeper agents could really exist?

Turned out to be true in the end.

He reminds me of Justin Beiber for some reason...maybe that's why? He looks like he should be in school with them as well. Very young looking.

Thank you for the pic!
