Hypnotism – my friend and I are arguing over what the facts really are..?
Q:A few years ago, I read two of the ‘industries leading books on hypnotism’ to get a better look at this mystical ‘science’. Whilst I was crap and could not even induce ‘self trance’, the books were never forgotten.Anyway, I recall a doctor in England who used hypnotherepy to ‘assist’ his patients with their ailments. This doctor then went on to rape a female patient, and she was unwittingly the mother of his child. This of course went to court (the doctor was already incarcerated at this point for another sexual offence), and his past was not brought up in court and he was dismissed of all charges. So.clearly, she did not know what was going on as a result of hypnotism.My friend agrues that it is not possible to make one do anything against their deepest will (something the books leaned towards), and that it would not be possible to make someone actually commit suicide.However, and I’ve seen Derren Brown live, I don’t agree.CSI touched on this subject too.So who is right?
More Answers to “Hypnotism – my friend and I are arguing over what the facts really are..?“hmm, i wish i knew! I do think that hypnotism is a fascinating subject, so i hope this gets some answers soon! Although your friends point does sound familiar to me. Ive seen Derren Brown live too.3 times! He is absolutely amazing, I love his work. Hes also quite good looking, although double my age!! Your could try asking this question in the Derren Brown forum, the people on there know a lot about this kind of thing. i think its www.derrenbrown.co.uk/forum. Hope that helps!
Hypnotism is an altered state of mind. I study psychology and countless studies have shown that people under the influence of hypnotism are very suggestible and if told to do soemthing, they will so i fink it is entirely possible that somebody could commit suicide under the influence. well i studied hypnosis too and the overwhelming fact is that the conscious part that makes decisions about acceptace and rejection is shut down so that you accept all things LITERALLY this is why its referred mostly to its power of suggestion. with the power of suggestion it is feasibly possible to get a person to believe any condition that would make it ok to commit or do any certain act including suicide but because of the not doing anything against a persons will it would have to be pretty convincing in some regards
couldnt be bothered to read the above because it was too long, just to save some time I will agree with you, i thin you are completely right and hypnotism does do that, and it can make you like what you say.. well done for being correct the person who can be totally controlled does not need hypnotism, he/she is already under another’s spell. So the answer is, you won’t do anything you won’t do anyway.
I think it all depends upon the type of person you are. Some people are very easily controlled by hypnotism and highly susceptable to suggestion too while others are not. I personally find it difficult to believe that one could be controlled totally by another person without knowingly surrendering to their will. Have you ever wondered about the reason of our existence? Have you ever wondered why we die, and where we go after death? What will happen to us in the end? Have you ever asked yourself why God made the earth and all that is in it under man’s dominion? Why were the night and the day, and the sun and the moon created? What are we supposed to do during our lifetime? Were we created just to eat, drink, and enjoy ourselves before we die? As one poet put it: “I do not know whence I have come. I saw my feet walking on the road. As they please I go and stop. What am I doing here? How did the road find me?I do not know! I do not know! I do not know! ”God has emphasized in many verses of the Qur’an that He did not create us without purpose. He said: “What! Do you think that I created you simply in jest? And that you would not be returned to Me?” (23:115) He also said: “What! Does man think that he will be left to roam at his will?” (75:36) In addition, He said: “Do people think that they will be left to say: “We believe,” and they will not be held accountable?” (29:2) Indeed, God Has created human beings for a purpose and with a purpose: TO WORSHIP HIM ALONE (Monotheism). He said: “I have not created the Jinn and humankind except only to worship Me. I don’t require provision or feeding from them. Surely Allah is the All-provider, the Possessor of all strength, the Firm.” (51:56-58) In fact, all prophets told their people to worship God alone (Monotheism) and shun worshipping His creation (Paganism). God said: “I assuredly sent among every people a messenger with the command: Worship Allah and avoid worshipping false gods.” (16:36)Prophet Abraham, for example, believed in One God, who had no partner. Anyone who holds a different understanding of God than this has contradicted the religion of Abraham and follows falsehood. God says in the Qur’an: “Those who reject the religion of Abraham make fools of themselves.” (2:130)Prophet Jesus was reported in the Gospels to have said: “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only’.” (Luke 4:8)Prophet Jacob also said (in the Qur’an) to his people: “Indeed, those which you worship besides Allah are only names that you and your forefathers have established, for which Allah has sent down no authority. The command belongs only to Allah. He has commanded that you worship none but Him. That is the right religion, but most people do not understand.” (12:40)Read more about the TRUE BELIEVE which supported by the Miracle Holy Quran :http://www.islam-guide.com/islam-guide.pdfhttp://www.harunyahya.comhttp://muslimconverts.com =*=*=*=*=*=*=*==*=*=*=*=*=*=*=.=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*.Real happiness and peace can be ONLY found in submitting to the commands of the Creator and the Sustainer of this world. God has said in the Qur’an: (Truly, in remembering God do hearts find rest.) (Qur’an, 13:28)On the other hand, the one who turns away from the Qur’an will have a life of hardship in this world. God has said:(But whoever turns away from the Qur’an, he will have a hard life, and We will raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment.) (Qur’an, 20:124)This may explain why some people commit suicide while they enjoy the material comfort money can buy. For example, look at Cat Stevens (now Yusuf Islam), formerly a famous pop singer who used to earn sometimes more than $150,000 a night. After he converted to Islam, he found true happiness and peace, which he had not found in material success.
