If you want a scientific take on the hypnosis , try cheking out
"Neuro-linguistic programming". That is as close to the science of how
to hypnothise someone, anyone, as I have been able to find. And they
actually do quite a bit of research on lower level (brain structures,
etc..) functioning of their techniques.
And your previous assertion that you do not believe in hypnosis because
you can not be hypnotised reminds me very much of the argument about
flatness of the earth....since one could not see the curvature directly
(in the past), there is no curvature.
There are very few man - and they are exceptions - who are able to think and feel beyond the present moment.
