Normal States, Altered States – Part 1 and their Governances – a Review of the Basics

by Dennis K. Chong & Jennifer K. Smith Chong

It was Neuro-Linguistic Programming, NLP, that first proposed a formula by which to understand any state of consciousness and by extension, any given state and therefore, any given ontology.

It had to do with the origin of sensory information that the person was getting in a given context.

Our primary sensory systems are: 1. Vision 2. Audition 3. Kinaesthetics 4. Gustation 5. Olfaction

NLP abbreviated these four into the 4-Tuple by deleting the 5th:

< V A K O >.

With this, NLP proposed this general formula to describe the subjective state of any given person for a given context by whether the information source is internal or external:

< Ve/i Ae/i Ke/i Oe/i >

Therefore, it may be proposed that your present state right at this moment is as follows:

< Ve Ae Ki O-/- >

where you are: 1. Ve = visual external as you are reading these word 2. Ai = auditory internal as you are saying these words inside your head 3. Ki = kinaesthetics internal as you are sensing what is written here 4. O-/- = olfaction nil smell outside and you are not generating the smell of something from your past.

From this formulation, you can see that a light to medium trance would be: < Vi Ae Ki Oi >

where Vi = visual internal Ae = auditory external - the voice of the hypnotist Ki = kinaesthetic internal Oi = olfaction internal.

For a truly deep trance the formulation would be: < Vi Ai Ki Oi >.

Then the field of Neuro-Semantic Programming, NSP, proposed that the form these descriptions would take depended on the manner of the operation of the governances that we use to configure the way we speak and our way of being for any given context. The problem for the hypnotist, at one logical level, is when he has guided a person into a trance, how does he shift the person from:

1. one tuple to another < V A K O >

2. NSP designated any given context as a space/time intersection, e.g. s/t1 s/t2, s/t3, s/t4 . . . s/tn. As a result, you could have s/t1 . . . s/t1+N. The question in Hypnotism is how would you take a person from one s/t to another:

< s/tn+70 . . . . s/t n+90 . . . . s/tn+99 . . . . > in an elegant manner.

The hypnotist has to find out what is the governance that will determine any ill-formed human ontology, even that of a cancer. To know this is also to know how the actuality of organ language unfolds:

1. you give me a headache 2. you make me sick 3. you are a pain in . . .

Part two of this paper will elaborate on the operation of the governances.

Drug addiction and hypnosis

Depending on which narcotic is involved, a person can quickly become addicted to a drug. Some such as marijuana and prescription pain killers may take longer to create a bonifide addiction. However, others such as meth amphetamines and cocaine can easily create an addiction from the very first use. There are two factors involved in a drug addiction. The first comes from the strength of the addictive drug as mentioned previously. The second comes from the repetitive use of the drug. The more that the behavior is repeated; the quicker it becomes a habit. Of course, that is true for just...

To Feel Great about Yourself

When you look in the mirror, do you see you own worst critic? Yes, I know that you are aware of every failing, mistake, and goof that you’ve made during your life. Well, you are not alone. All of us see that person staring back at us. On the other hand, what you are probably not seeing are all the positive things that you have accomplished in your life. My favorite Christmas movie is It’s a Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reid. For me the most memorable quote in the movie is when Clarence the angel sent to help the George Bailey, the main character who is played by...

Smoking Causes Short-Term and Long-Term Consequences

It is sad to see middle-age and older people who display the cumulative effects of long-term smoking. Many years of cigar, cigarette, or pipe smoking seems to affect every cell and organ in their body. You can see it in their complexions and hear it in their voices. Those that eventually come to see me, tell me that they have always been aware of the long-term consequences. However, they say that they could never successful quit the habit. Unfortunately, while it is never too late to give up smoking, but the time that we meet, the damage to their body is extensive.
