What is Hypnosis?

Webster defines hypnosis as a trance-like state that resembles sleep but is induced by a person whose suggestions are readily accepted by the subject. That sounds simple enough but how the human mind works is very puzzling. Hypnosis has been a legitimate source of scientific investigation for over a hundred years, generally in the fields of psychology and medicine. Science has yet to fully explain how hypnosis actually happens, so for now hypnosis will remain something of a mystery.
