Jack True was one of the most innovative hypnotherapists of our time. Largely unknown in academic circles, uninterested in publishing his work, Jack focused on his patients.
We met in 1987. We became friends and colleagues. Over the course of several years, I interviewed him many times.
Jack eventually gave up on straight hypnosis-and-suggestion as a way to do therapy. He said, “I’m finding that people who come to my office are already in a hypnotic state, so my job is to wake them up.”
Here is an excerpt from one of our interviews:
Q: What does “mind control” mean to you?
A: The total sum of all influences that put people in a reality trance.
Q: And what’s that?
A: A state in which people consider this the only space and the only possible time.
Q: And it isn’t?
A: Reality is a psychological operation. “Here we are, this is the only space and time, and we’re inside it.” Whereas, music, for example, invents its own time and even space, and you can see, from people’s reaction to it, how profound other deeper realities can be.
If we define ourselves as creatures only capable of living inside one space and time, then we adjust our behavior, our prospects, and we adjust the scope of our desires.
The space-time continuum is one reality. And at some level, a human being knows this. That’s the point. He knows this. And he doesn’t want to stay glued to one reality.
So if a person becomes all wound up in this continuum—which of course he does—then he loses sight of what? Desire. Because it seems then that reality defines what can be legitimately desired. Everything is backwards. Desire becomes diluted and blunted. And power drains away.
Imagine it this way. There’s a machine that keeps manufacturing reality. Space, time, reality. And people, however it happens, hook themselves up to it. They’re addicts.
