"this stuff isnt real. Doing a pass is more impressive "
You're absolutely right. Don't bother with this stuff, it's not worth your time.
NO! A PASS IS REAL!!! its skillful and cool and people get impressed by it and its technique. This stuff is just fake and stupid. Might as well just knock em out with a sneaky sucker punch from behind and tell the person he was in deep sleep and he looked happy on the ground while he was passed out.
There are loads of threads on here about hypnosis, but I thought I'd contribute my little bit of knowledge here anyway.
There is no clear definition of what "hypnosis" actually is. Anyone who claims they have a definitive explanation is only going by their own experience or what they have read somewhere. People in many different kind of mind-states could be classified as being "hypnotised". Therefore, anyone who markets a product teaching a method of hypnotising someone is really only saying that they've got a method of creating a hypnosis effect.
Basically, instant inductions create an immediate suggestible state. However, this is nothing unusual. If you walk up to someone randomly on the street, point at something and say "Look at that", the chances are that they will, even if it's just for a moment. That's because you've created a moment of confusion in which their logical mind is occupied with trying to analyse the situation, so it isn't free to question the command you've given it.
Instant inductions are essentially a controlled method of creating that confused moment in which you can supply the unconscious mind with an instruction. "Sleep", is the classic example of such an instruction. This "sleep" instruction is already anchored in most people's minds to pre-existing ideas about what is expected of the subject, so it puts them in a compliant state.
Basically, if you want to put someone in a "trance state", start a conversation with them, and in the middle of talking to them, look them right in the eyes and say "And as you look at me it's time to sleep, NOW", and snap your fingers in front of their face as you say "NOW". If they are genuinely involved in the conversation, you do it with confidence and assurance, and you can see that they're listening to you rather than looking to escape, this will work.
Having said that, I haven't seen Zap, so there may be something more to it, but I doubt it.
Anyway, hope that's useful for someone.
but i know how this is exactly done and this stuff isnt real. still say the pass is cooler. TAKE IT BACK AGAIN!!!
Thanks very much OwnerM.
I'm continually astonished at how many misconceptions there are about hypnosis. There are enough e-books, websites and forums out there...and even real books and DVDs. It's not some underground secret that only the elite inner circle know, so why do people insist on sticking to the myths?
ZOMG Tahts 3XP0ZURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Banned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@!!!!um im not gonna take it back, the pass is secretly moving one half of the deck around so its on top whatever
a card magician uses this.
this tequnique (sp.) is secretly confusing someone so much that there mind gives up and they are in a trance (or something like that)
this is what hypnotist uses.
if you went and did either of these people may say the pass is cool, but people cant relate to it or anthing like that. if you showed someone this then there gonna say its awsome (or something) because everyone can understand it, everyone wants to do it.
actually that probabbly doesnt make sense but oh well
its like saying to you
the french drop is better than the pass.
I think that it is, vanishing a coin (for me) is cooler than making a card come to the top but thats my opinion, dont try and make me think differant, im not gonna.
