We postulate the hypnoid state of the human organism to be a third possible state besides waking and sleeping. This state can be equally induced by heterohypnotic and by autohypnotic means, by various techniques for meditation, relaxation and psychotherapy as well. It forms a basal status of the organism with partial deprivation of external stimuli. Out of this partial deprivation derives the possibility of stronger concentration on special stimuli (such as hypnotic suggestions) which would hence be able to act stronger in this state than in the waking state.Thus, it is possible to change external stimuli within their subjective perception (probably by ways of a subcortical modulating effect derived from the hypnotic suggestion). However, within their bioelectric parameters the stimuli pass unchanged through the peripheral receptor up to the cortex, which is measurable. If somebody produces actions within the hypnoid state these actions will have the same neurophysiological correlate as in the waking state, which means desynchronization. This docs not exclude such actions (by concentration in the hypnoid state) having a stronger effect than in the waking state and/or having a different subjective perception.
