      > Eduard, I just threw away my deploma from The Ethiccal Hypnosis Training Center. It was run by Harry Aarons a noted stage hypnotist.He saw hypnosis as a relaxation technique and I used it in conjunction with Nitrous Oxide to make patients more comfortable. It was quite effective but it was not really about the drug it was about creating a mood, a rhythm of calm and security. Old Harry was a showman and turned many a audience member into chickens. He did not try to pick the weak minded , he wanted the trusting, the adventurous. A managed relaxation technique could make a wrestling match into a reasonable experience for dentist and patient. Harry taught voice and rhythm methods . He also spilled the beans on hypnotists who had lesser motives. I knew another hypnotist who claimed to have had sex with over a hundred women when in his spell. He also sold pots and pans. The quiet corners of the mind are interesting cul de sacs but I would not set up any experiments to measure space time. They are just coincidental cross circits that work on a few people. I know Harry was paying his dues back for the more theatrical times in his life. Indeed he did not kill anyone and indirectly helped many people. I can still use his breathing techniques to forestall anxiety and panic. Bill
