WOW!! You must be some kisser. And in your case taking out the garbage must be a full-time job, especially dealing witht some of the trash you sling sometimes. It's to bad that you and your fellow skeptics can find nothing better to do than to attack others making fun of them, just like the school-yard bully I had to deal with. I took a baseball bat to his knees. He stopped being a bully after that cuz he too needed protection then.
Holmes: I don't know of any books on the subject. I learned the technique from a therapist friend when I wanted to quit smoking. It is a great way to get a quick deep sleep and awaken refreshed in just minutes. I found it easy, effective,relaxing, and refreshing, and if I gave myself a post-suggestion it worked too.
Wait, am I here, let met think, no, I'm not, I'm there, not here, or am I here and not there, wait again, I've got it, no I don't, is it true that or not which was is, or is it true that which was is was, I...
I never said it wasn't. You really do need to stop being so self-defensive. And stop calling people names. And stop accusing people of false motives. Just a thought. I think you are a nice person inside, but I could be wrong.
I pretty confine my "states of consciousness" (if that's the correct term) to three:
1) Awake and "all hyper".
2) Out like a light.
3) In the process of waking up and getting back to "Awake and all hyper", which is a state/stage that can take up two hours and involve gradual and increasing degrees of alertness.
It works for me, though. I like being "hyper". It's very productive. As far as I can, I'm reasonably happy when I'm out like a light. As for the other state/stage, it's hard enough for me to get back to hyper. I wouldn't want to then hypnotize myself out of it once I get there. If I want/need to change somehow, I guess I mostly take advantage of that "hyper thing" by using it to figure out how I'm going to make that change.
