Erickson to audience

I had her do that to emphasize the point of time distortion. It is a very real subjective phenomenon. They do see the movie from beginning to end. In a recent demonstration, I gave a subject fifteen extra seconds. And she saw four or five extra cartoons. The speed of thought is extremely rapid and there is no motor behavior to slow up the subjective experience.

Now she has done automatic writing; she's shown time distortion; she's uncovered memories, and she's demonstrated the capacity of the retina to become anesthetic to stimuli. She was unable to see the writing on a card. She saw the card with her own writing on it as a blank. She readily accepted the suggestion that her words had been written with a pen that had disappearing ink.
