  • Description

    One of the most remarkable demonstrations in modern hypnotism was given in Copenhagen recently by the young Danish hypnotist, Peter Lie.

    Sitting before the keyboard of a teleprinter machine, he told his subject -the young Danish girl, Jean Kalis - to fall asleep for three minutes and woke up when he typed his name, Peter Lie, on the machine.

    Slowly the girl fell into a hypnotic daze until even a large needle pushed right through the flesh of her arm would not rouse her.

    To test her reactions and prove that the act had not been pre-arranged, Dr. Leudesdorff, who acted as an unbiased witness, looked at the dilated pupils of her eyes, took her temperature and tested her pulse.

    All the reactions were normal, and, as instructed by Lie, the girl soon woke out of her hypnotic sleep.

    After this, the first public demonstration of this unique hypnotic power, Lie told our cameraman that he would be able to put subjects to sleep all over the world using the teleprinter as his medium.

    All that was required was that the subject would be able to speak the same language as Lie - in this so English was used as the common language.

    To prove his claim, Peter Lie hopes to be able to demonstrate his strange powers over teleprinter machines to London, New York or Stockholm.
