Question by pumkin king: hypnosis and its origin?
ok i’ve always been curious what is the origin of hypnosis is… ive tried searching on the web but couldnt find much…. it really seems like a weird procedure you stare at something until you fall asleep…. then they ask you question and you answer them… they can make you act how ever they want… it all seems pretty weird and creepy… doesn’t seem like a medical procedure at all.. more like mind control vodoo

Answer by GKWn
hypnosis is extremely old, I doubt anyone really knows where it started.

also, you aren’t asleep, just in an altered state of conciousness.

they can’t “make you act however they want”, *generally speaking* you wouldn’t do anything while under hypnosis you would not normally do. kinda like being drunk doesn’t make you do things you wouldn’t do, or say things you don’t mean, it just removes inhibitions.

  1. dbobo says:

    Franz Anton Mesmer (May 23, 1734 – March 5, 1815), born Friedrich Anton Mesmer, was a German physician and astrologist, who invented what he called magnétisme animal (animal magnetism[1]) and other spiritual forces often grouped together as mesmerism. The evolution of Mesmer’s ideas and practices led Scottish surgeon James Braid to develop hypnosis in 1842. Mesmer’s name is the root of the English verb “mesmerize”.
