Is hypnosis just a stronger form of suggestion, or is it something else.? It seems there is little agreement in texts. I thought that you may have more of an insight than most as to this topic. Care to share your thoughts?
By the way, many thanks for your time on the forum, its great to see such a superb perfomer sharing insights and time with the magical community.

Thanks, Phil. I see 'hypnosis' as a shorthand term for a micture of such elements as suggestion, response expectancy, hype, charisma, role playing, social pressure etc. In the same way 'magic' is a shorthand term for all the theatrical and technical elements of which it comprises. Neither is 'real' as such, unless you take it to mean an experience, or a description of a type of event. But both break down into many different components when you take a closer look.

Cheers,
