    Hi Trupeljak Ozren -

    >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.

    But I have walked the earth and found it to be a sphere. And I have sat
    in the hypnotist's chair and found it to be a fraud.

    Don't get me started on NLP....
