[Derren Brown Hypnosis]so I’m about to give a demonstration ofhypnosis to an audience of people who’ve applied to take part in my show and haven’t prepared these people in anyway I’m gonna show you from scratch how it is that I can create a hypnoticstate but what they don’t know is that I’m actually on the lookout fora perfect candidate that I can program to carry out theassassination of a wellknown figure at a public event now nothing like this has ever been attempted before unless ofcourse the claims of the conspiracy
theorists are true enjoys tonights experiment yeah %ah thank you very much indeed thank you all for coming What’s your name? Kara stand up for me let me take your handpress your palms together like that really pressed together look at me righthere now just close your eyes for a
second the more you try to unlock your hands when I let go the more youtry to unstick them harder and harder the more the keep on pressing just like this on the more you tryto unstick those hands Cara the more they keep on sticking so what’s going though your hearlet me get you a microphone thank you now you are fully wide awake and yes you’renot in some zombielike state but whatever people think hypnosis is
and they are genuinly stuck aren’t they?yeah when I try to move my hands my hands are just like nope not having I’m sticking togetherand i can feel thme pushing what’s actually happening here the ideathat her hands are stuck that I’ve given her is stronger than her own sense her ownrational sense she must be able to pull them apart so how do you clear something likethis once you have created it how do you clear it? two things first of all I could I won’t but I could tell that theyare cleared or if something else happens to take her mindof it
it would not actually kinda you knowthat but they would kinda just come apart anyway just take a seat for me Kara Just want to choose someone at random just catch Kara Kara through this back andchoose someone they start to come apart.
Milton Erickson al Session November 1958 Subtitled
DR. ERICKSON: You know I’m curious about one thing: that oneway mirror. I think I would prefer someone light a cigarette… CLIENT: Uhhuh. DR. ERICKSON: Did you notice that? Anybody who uses a oneway mirror ought to be careful about that. And I wonder if Andre realizes that you can see that.
You know when you hear about the experimental work that they do here, whether they are aware that they can betray themselves through a oneway mirror. Do you remember the first time we met? We were sitting in notâ€”quite this position. I was over on your left side, isn’t that right? CLIENT: On my right side. DR. ERICKSON: And that’s right, on your right side.
And let’s see. There was Hilgard over slightly to the left of the room. CLIENT: Yes. DR. ERICKSON: In the same general relative position where Bateson is right now. CLIENT: Uhhuhu DR. ERICKSON: And I don’t remember where any of the others were, but they were scattered around.
They were rather silent as they listened to what I had to say to you. And one of the things I mentioned to you is this question of feeling yourself, do you recall? CLIENT: Yes, I remember, yes. DR. ERICKSON: And as you remember that, do you remember just what happened to you as you recalled it? You felt yourself doing what?
That’s right. You felt yourself going into a trance, as you recall, just as you’re going into a trance right now. And I’d like to have you feel yourself in a different position, in a different position in this room than you’re in right now.
And close your eyes and sleep deeply, and feel yourself in a different position in this room, as if you were sitting in a somewhat different way. And Gregory is still there running that, and I’d like to have you feel yourself going deeper and deeper into the trance. And I wonder what you would like to do in the trance state. You were doing some research, I believe, on the primates.
