Oh Charismatic, Beautiful, Youthful One,
The current issue of The New Yorker has a, well, fabulous article by Kathryn Schulz entitled Fantastic Beasts and How to Rank Them. It is a reflection on how to rank the probability among impossibilities (like unicorns, sea monsters, or the Abominable Snowman). Therein she observes:
Which seems more likely to work: Harry Potter’s apparating ability or Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi mind trick? If you ask me, it’s obviously the mind trick, with its real-life analogies of charisma and hypnosis, not to mention its failure to defy any major laws of physics.
Apparating is another word for teleportation. And, as a distracting aside, let it be noted that despite Ms. Schulz’s skepticism, quantum physicists recently succeeded in teleporting a photon into outer space using quantum entanglement, something Einstein derided as “spooky action at a distance.” Also, for the record, quantum physicists have succeed in teleporting whole atoms — much bigger than photons — shorter distances with no theoretical barrier to moving them right across the galaxy — or universe.
Thus … the impossible — teleportation — suddenly becomes not just possible but real.
How much more real is a Jedi mind trick, “with its real-life analogies of charisma and hypnosis.”
Charisma and hypnosis are not an “analogy.”
They are a real deal “Jedi mind trick.”

As StarWars.com states, “An experienced Jedi can use the Force to implant a suggestion in the minds of those they encounter, encouraging them to comply with the Jedi’s wishes.”
Hypnosis is often called “the power of suggestion.”
As Merrill Douglas writes at Discover-e, published by Binghamton University, in The power of suggestion: Psychologist explores ways to make hypnosis a more effective therapeutic technique:
In the popular imagination, a person who submits to hypnosis falls into a trance. The subject slavishly follows the hypnotist’s commands, perhaps to squawk like a chicken, re-enact events from childhood or develop a lasting aversion to cigarettes. When the subject “awakens,” he or she forgets everything that happened during the session.
Actually, hypnosis is not like that at all, said Steven Lynn, professor of psychology at Binghamton University, who has devoted much of his career to establishing a clear, scientific understanding of hypnotic suggestion. A person who responds well to hypnosis takes an active rather than a passive role, working in partnership with the hypnotist. “Hypnosis involves the participant thinking and imagining along with whatever is suggested, in an expectant manner,” he said.
As we have pointed out before: hypnotist Michael Yapko, Ph.D. wrote, in Treating Depression With Hypnosis,
“Ernest Hilgard, Ph.D., one of the true giants in the field, once described hypnosis to me as “believed in imagination.” That is a very astute framing, I believe, capturing both the flesh and spirit of hypnosis.”
In fact, as Napoleon said, “Yes, imagination rules the world.”
By using “believed in imagination” — hypnosis — you harness the Force.
