Then he “talks sleep. Then after a couple of minutes he dares them to open their eyes, and notes results. Finally, he may try unsuccessfully to stop them, stiffening up the muscles in all sorts of curious ways, bumping his hands together, even gripping his coat in an unsuccessful effort to bring the movement to an end. To them such questions were merely side issues, and very unpleasant side issues at that. The only real difficulty here is one of discipline.

You cannot take even one step forward. It is impossible to bend your right arm. You cannot move it.
Yet we must hypnoosis in mind that this use of hypnotic records has very definite limitations. The subject is asked to stand erect and we attach to bby top of his head a system of strings and wires which measure accurately the sway of his body. In general, the operator has to press repeatedly for an answer until one of two things happen. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: If he tells us there is a black dog standing by our chair, we will see the animal clearly and pet it.
If he does, he is in deep hypnosis. Next, the operator may decide to have the subject stand up and walk around the room. Hypnotism was unpopular, linked in the public’s mind with black magic and mysticism.
This may come as a g.q.estabrooks to the reader but, for example, our own Federal Bureau of Investigation knows more about possible criminal uses of hypnotism than anyone in the country.
Deeper and deeper, deeper and deeper. Much work is being tried along these lines and hypnosi research is htpnosis promising results, as that at the Harvard Psychological Clinic.

Hypnotism is notoriously time consuming and any device which could meet this objection might make it far more acceptable to the average medical man.
The reader will have noted that when the operator changes normal sleep into the hypnotic trance, the subject has nothing hjpnosis say in the matter. Now open your mouth. The reader will also be impressed with the fact that his method of attack stands out in sharp contradiction to that previously described in almost every respect.
Another rapid way of picking the good subject, in the absence of any equipment, is simply to use the test of clasping the hands, as mentioned previously. The so-called lie detector provides an excellent screen behind which to work.
