Forgetting


Watch the video

I have spent several years online, exploring ways in which the body can be effected through mediated means. One of the things i've been exploring is Hypnotism.

I've had two previous sessions with T. - a man who claims to be an online erotic hypnotist. During those sessions, I have felt relaxed (much like meditation) but have not been able to take it further.

My third attempt was last night.

I have to admit this is the oddest thing I've seen with my own eyes.

I've always discounted hypnosis as garbage...but wow, to see it first hand is something else.

I absolutely loved this video. I loved how Devlon was there, seeing the process. How T. spoke in a certain tone suddenly and Anne just fell into it. It looked unreal. And yet, I have seen too many examples of hypnosis and heard too many stories of it to be able to just dismiss it. But what is absolutely certain is this: Our mind can be worked in all kinds of ways. If Anne can in the course of a few minutes be made to forget Devlon's name - what is not possible through hours of brainwashing and hypnosis in society and in our hyper-mediated world?

I am really interested in how we through videoblogs can create effects on each other - mostly intellectual and emotional reactions. But in general: mediated means to affect each other. Goal? Growth, at least for me. Growth through videos that Show and Explain and Affect and Aid.

Thank you for sharing this. I want to continue the discussion about this. Video commenting, where areth thou?

hi serra!

it was, indeed, a little creepy but it was also fascinating to me.

where this takes me is anyone's guess.

hi raymond!

nice to have you stop by!

yes, i'm interested in aspects of control, body, mind, mediation, and interaction in all aspects of society. we are the media. so, what does that mean?

it actually took much longer than i'm showing. i didn't want to be responsible for everyone forgetting D.'s name by getting them tranced.

plus, these things must be kept so short on behalf of diminished (fractured?) attention spans.

yes. make a video in response please. effect me.

Wow! That's pretty freaky Anne. Watching it makes me wonder about the effect of one person's will over another's... and to see that it works online - that was a surprise. It just doesn't feel "right" to me somehow...
Good luck with the exploration - be careful!

That's the most intersting vlog post I've seen in a while. Wow! Thanks so much for sharing this. For some reason I keep hearing that Nat King Cole song. Or is it Jonny Mathis? What's it called? I always forget... Oh yeah, it's "Unforgetable". That's it! ;)

I just spent the last year doing a study about mind-body techniques such as these to treat trauma.

I also work with soldiers who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress. Many of them have used hypnotism and found great results.

It is a mysterious technique. Have you seen the movie Barbra Streisand did about hypnotism called On A Clear Day? It is very humorous.

I too find mind-body techniques fascinating. This is a vlog I did about this topic: http://www.ebbandflow.tv/blog/index.php/2006/05/06/mind-body-health/

neat post.

Ooohh! Cool! I've always wanted to see if I could be hypnotised to quit biting my nails. That would be so rad. Let us know where this goes, Anne. Fascinating.

Hi, I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU. Why you wonder.... well it just so happens that any awareness of any subject matter of this type that is shared or expressed openly in public is a great help to me. I along with oh probably about a thousand others that I am aware of have been victims of some very sinister and extremely hard to believe crimes right along this line. I have a web site telling my story if you would like to take a peek. on my links page there are two different links to web pages of former FBI agents who are saying this stuff is going on(one of which was once interviewed for the position of director). Among some other very excellent web sites on the subject. My site is www.humanmazeratsunbound.com

Thanks, And Have A Great Day, Todd.
