There is no legal definition of hypnosis. Webster's dictionary describes it incorrectly as an artificially induced sleep, but is actually a natural state of mind and induced normally in everyday living much more often than it is induced artificially. Every time we become engrossed in a novel or a motion picture, we are in a natural hypnotic trance.
