The Model Primary Experience

The first notion which we introduce in the model is that of the 4-tuple. The 4-tuple is a visual representation of experience which looks like < V K At 0> j 1 the referential index of the experiencer The 4-tuple is a way of visually representing a person's experience at any point in time. The 4-tuple claims that for the purposes of a model of effective hypnotic communication, a person's primary experience at a moment in time can be represented adequately by a description of their visual,...

Tracking Model II for Sequencing of 4Tuples

For either the induction of trance or the utilization of trance for some purpose, the model for sequencing of 4-tuples provides a viable option about how to proceed. Taking a client from any state Si to any other state of consciousness S1 can be accomplished by describing 4-tuples, preferably ones that the client has had such that the values of the variables of the 4-tuple of Si change fluidly to the values of the variables of the S1. For example, the client is a willing and congruent person...

The COperator

Once you understand the limitations of consciousness you can begin to understand both the necessity and usefulness of unconscious programming of behavior. At any point in time, ti, a person has some experience, that is, a 4-tuple. His R operator determines what portion of that 4-tuple will be consciously represented to him. The rest of the 4-tuple occurs and is stored in memory and can be accessed into consciousness at some later time. However, it is not represented consciously at the time ti,...

Patterns of Meaningful Communication in Hypnosis with Congruent Clients

Communication in hypnosis or in any context for that matter is meaningful to the degree that it serves the desired purpose. To chat over morning coffee is meaningful to serve the purpose of amusing a friend, or the sharing of thoughts. Simple conversations during the day of an average person may sometimes serve his purposes, and sometimes he may be understood. Sometimes he is aware is he is misinterpreted when he is not. Sometimes he believes he is misinterpreted when he is not. Sometimes he is...

Transderivatonal Search Generalized Referential Index

One of Erickson's favorite devices, employed when the client is in both trance and normal state of awareness, is for him to tell a story. This story, typically, begins with the phrase I had a patient once Erickson then proceeds to describe some actual or created-on-the-spot version of an experience which will be relevant to the person to whom he is presently speaking. The amount of relevance which the story has depends upon how direct Erickson wishes to be in his communications in general, this...

General Discussion of the Use of the ROperator and 4Tuple in Hypnotic Inductions

In Volume I of the Patterns series, the process of hypnotic induction was described in terms of pacing and leading. The advanced student of hypnosis and communication will find it useful to understand these processes in terms of the R operator over the 4-tuple. Let us begin with the notion of pacing. Essentially, pacing is the process by which the hypnotist makes contact with the client, or in terms of Patterns I, the hypnotist meets the client at the client's model of the world. Overt pacing...
