I’ve been curious about this for a while. I have a family member who is a certified hypnotherapist, but I’m talking slightly more “out-there” feats… Such as, can you use self hypnosis to enable yourself to double your strength on demand ( which seems possible due to the fact that people in some altered states do seem capable of controlling body functions such as the percentage of total muscle fibers used) or use self hypnosis to be able to read at a much quicker rate. Maybe give yourself a photographic-like memory? What about using it to greatly increase the rate at which you learn. What about something as far out as creating an imaginary friend that you could ACTUALLY see? I just don’t know where the bounds of such a tool end. Any ideas or other COOL things that we could attempt with self hypnosis?
On a side note, what would be cool is if we all got a little group of HEthens together and all decided on something to attempt, keep each other updated on progress, etc.
