The Function of Hypnosis in Human Evolution



      Where do We Go from Here?
If I were to walk up to a person who responds extremely well to suggestion, ask him to close his eyes, and matter-of-factly state that by the time I got to the count of five he could open them and see me wearing a Santa Claus suit and hat, he would surely think that I was crazy. And if such a suggestion should actually happen to "work," he would surely think that he was crazy! But if I first asked him to close his eyes and suggested with sufficient plausibility that he was "going into hypnosis," and then I told him that by the time I got to the count of five he could open his eyes and see me dressed like Santa Claus, such a suggestion could be accepted much more easily because it would have become more credible -- but why?


Some people never know that they are color-blind -- that they lack an important ability possessed by the rest of us. Now let's consider the opposite. What if there should dwell among us a group of individuals who have an ability that is lacking in most of the population? Wouldn't they also be inclined to deny it, in order to fit in with the rest of the society?  Bur the question remains, where do these abilities come from, and what is their ultimate purpose? 

There is little doubt that our evolutionary development has been uneven.. We have highly developed frontal lobes which enable us to formulate lofty ideals and distant goals, but all too often our emotional centers prevent us from achieving them. More than once in the last century, we have come close to annihilating each other; and many societal institutions are devoted in whole or in part to regulating our behavior so that we do not do so individually. 


With the use of multimodal hypnosis to involve one's entire person the content of a suggested event,, it becomes possible for this imaginatively gifted group pf individuals, more highly evolved than the rest, to pre-experience the rewards of distant goals now, in the present when they are most important for motivation, making it much easier to live up to the goals and ideals which evolution has enabled us to construct, but which we have frequently found it difficult to achieve, due to what is often referred to as a lack of "will power.". 

Many cosmologists now believe in the existence of alternate universes, and since our brain constructs our own reality, it is not necessary to restrict ourselves to possible outcomes in this universe. Using alternate and parallel universes as merely one more form of hypothetical constructs or believed-in imaginings, you can selectively sample from the best moments of every parallel lifetime you can possibly imagine, speed-walking on the path of enlightenment,  and you can directly explore the joys and wonders of the Multiverse itself, ti pave the way for all humankind to one day follow..
