Hi Robin Faichney -
>Are you trying to say that you admit it happens but you don't believe
No, I'm saying, as I say about gods, some people believe in 'em, follow
'em, pray to 'em, but never have they shown 'em to anyone else.
You can call things whatever you want, but, proofs require proof, not
Hypnosis as a behavior is not contestable. It is cultural. But as a
scientific method with a verified mechanism it certainly is.
