I took her away.

Hypnosis eliminates personal context — how we recognize the shape of our lives based on the past, how we anticipate the future — and substitutes an experience delivered by a third party. My subjectivity is at stake: who am I, under hypnosis, if not someone else’s idea of me? Are my memories my own or manufactured, and how do I tell the difference? (Tom Jokinen)
