Example text

C is used to specify a closed loop of thoughts. In gen­ eral, c is a repeating subset of s. d is the collective latent awareness that is created by c. d is also referred as the dissociated trance plane (sometimes referred to as the DTP) of c. Subscripts on these symbols are meant to denote specific instances of them. 57 Thoughts As used here, s denotes a thought or thought object which can be uniquely described by a set of physiolog­ ical measurements.  denote a specific sequence of thoughts which oc­ cur sequentially in relative increasing time order without specifying the time interval.

The neodissocia­ tive model differs from the social psychological model in that it is a systems model and does not assume a "purpose" to hypnotically suggested behavior. McClelland and Rumelhart (1986) recognize that thinking and problem solving are a result of what they call "parallel distributed processing". com/trance 48 too suggests parallel processing as a useful concept (Stava & Jaffa, 1988). I have a simple model for trance which uses the idea of parallel distributed processing, but in such a way that may be used in a systems or in an automated measurement environment.

What might distinguish the trance of a yogi from the trance of a drug addict? What is the difference between a televi­ sion trance and the trance that we experience when daydreaming? It is possible to enter into trances which relieve pain, such as when going to a dentist who uses hypnosis to produce anesthesia. If compulsive drinking or eating could be shown to be trances, an argument could be made that trance can produce involuntary self­destructive behavior and therefore a model for trance might indicate ways to control such behaviors.
