Bad History of India, the Mughals, and especially the early modern Indian economy in Steven Johnson's *Enemy of all Mankind* (2020)

After hearing an entertaining interview on the podcast Time to Eat the Dogs with Steven Johnson, concerning his new book Enemy of all Mankind, I naively anticipated a light and narrative-focused book which would nonetheless offer some interesting and decently researched contextualization of the encounter between English pirate Henry Every and a Mughal treasure ship in 1695. I did not expect Johnson’s engagement with the Indian aspects of the story to involve deep primary source reading, but upon starting the book I found that, unfortunately, his engagements with Mughal and wider Indian history are not only shallow but deeply flawed, often in basic factual terms.


For one, he refers to the Mughal dynasty as “five-centur[ies]-old” (p. 113) at the time of Every’s piratical career, a rather baffling claim I can only ascribe to possible conflation with the Ghurids. Earlier he also conflates the Ghurids with the Delhi Sultanate, which he claims Muhammad Ghuri established (p. 36). The Delhi sultanate in fact emerged as a successor to the Ghurids following both the death of Muhammad Ghuri in 1206 and a protracted contest between his slave-commanders in different regions of India. The Mughal Empire was established by Babur, who conquered a stretch of North India in 1526; if one takes up the idealized Mughal claim to Timurid dynastic continuity, one could place the dynasty’s origins in the late fourteenth century, but as far as I know this is not an approach taken in any literature. As a discrete ruling dynasty, the Mughals emerged in the sixteenth century. Even the strained Timurid timeline is nowhere close to Johnson’s five hundred years.


He also appears to think of the word ‘Mughal’ as an imperial title interchangeable with ‘king’ or ‘emperor,’ as in this line: “declare yourself emperor/king/mughal” (p. 51). My thinking is that this arose from his use of European sources which refer to the Mughal emperors as ‘Grand (or Great) Mughals’, a formulation he repeats often; he also refers only to rulers as Mughals. Mughal is not at all an imperial title, but an ethnic or cultural identifier meaning ‘Mongol’ in Persian. On the theme of ethno-cultural confusions, Johnson refers to Mahmud of Ghazni as “Afghani” (p. 36). Firstly, Mahmud was of Turkic origin. Secondly, the conventional term for someone of Afghan origin is ‘Afghan’ rather than ‘Afghani’. Another odd moment worth me

Want to start reading, what version to buy?

Hey people, its my first post here.

I wanted to start reading Dune but I don’t know what version to get. I mostly read on my phone.

What I mean by this, that there is the Orion version and the one published by Penguin Publishing Group.

Also there is a complete collection from Riverhead Books which has all the books for only 9 euro.

I’m really confused 😅

On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee (2/5 stars - please save me from "literary" scifi hell) | Basilisk Reviews

“A tale, like the universe, they tell us, expands ceaselessly each time you examine it, until there is finally no telling exactly where it begins, where it ends, or where it places you now.”

  • On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee (2/5 stars)
  • Genre(s): Literary Dystopian Sci-Fi
  • Series: Stand-Alone
  • Publisher: Riverhead Books
  • Release date: January 7th, 2014
  • /r/Fantasy Bingo Squares: Slice of Life (HM), Four Word Title

Execution: ⭐⭐

Enjoyment: ⭐⭐

On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee is dystopian science fiction for people who have never read any dystopian science fiction and would prefer to keep themselves at arms-length from anything “genre” fiction. While I enjoyed the prose, that was about the only thing I enjoyed.

I got the sense while reading that this novel was intentionally light on science fiction and character-driven elements not because they would have harmed they novel (they wouldn’t have), but because the author didn’t want to be associated with the genre. The writing itself is lovely, poetic, and ambitious; Lee writes in the plural “we,” where just who “we” is must be interpreted by the reader. Each sentence is packed with descriptors and atmosphere. Unfortunately, Lee’s characters are poorly fleshed out and his women are often infantilized in a frustrating manner. The setting, plot lines, and overall themes are nothing new and have all been explored in other works – and usually done without sacrificing character and plot quality.

Lee comes highly recommended on paper, having been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction back in 2011 for his novel The Surrendered, having won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize in 2011 for the same novel, and On Such a Full Sea itself was honored as the ALA Notable Book of the Year. It has generally been my observation that no matter how well done a “genre” book that is clearly science fiction or fantasy is, it tends to be passed over for such awards on the grounds of not being sufficiently literary. Therefore, authors like Lee tend to avoid the being labeled genre fiction at all costs by avoiding the things that actually make for a good piece of genre fiction: specifically, good characters and good plot. It frustrates me that this is the case – why must SFF with heavily political, social, cultural, a

Supplemental sources to defend Yang with part 1 (Repost)

Here are some sources to help defend Yang with. Reposting this since the sub has more than doubled in size since when it was originally posted. Some new sources also added. Part 2 is here.


--There is no policy more progressive than Andrew Yang's Freedom Dividend.

--Model of how to pay for the Freedom Dividend (unofficial).

--Distributional analysis of the effects of the Freedom Dividend. Important notes:

  • 87% of Americans would come out ahead, including 90% of those in households earning under $50,000.
  • Households in the bottom nine deciles see their disposable income rise about $10,000 on average, while households in the top decile lose an average of $8,000. this represents a highly progressive outcome, more than doubling the average disposable income of households in the bottom decile and reducing top-decile incomes by about 4%. Essentially all households earning more than $500,000 would pay more in taxes than they'd receive from the Freedom Dividend.
  • Median income rises 25% from $56k to $70k, and the 10th percentile rises 48%, from $19k to $29k.
  • Across all measures, the FD would reduce poverty and income inequality. One measure of poverty is the share of people in households with disposable income less than the federal poverty line. The Yang plan reduces this share by 74%, from 7.3% to 1.9%. Child poverty falls 54%, from 7.9% to 3.6%. Using this measure, Yang's plan would lift 17 million out of poverty. Another common measure of inequality is the Gini index. The Yang plan reduces the Gini index of disposable income by 15%, from 0.46 to 0.39. Other measures of income inequality also fall under the Yang plan: the share of disposable income held by the top 1% falls by 24%, and the share held by the top 0.1% falls 29%.

The #1 New York Times**-bestselling author of** The Kite Runner**,** A Thousand Splendid Suns**, and** And the Mountains Echoed responds to the heartbreak of the current refugee crisis with this deeply moving, beautifully illustrated short work of fiction for people of all ages, all over the world.

A short, powerful, illustrated book written by beloved novelist Khaled Hosseini in response to the current refugee crisis, Sea Prayer is composed in the form of a letter, from a father to his son, on the eve of their journey. Watching over his sleeping son, the father reflects on the dangerous sea-crossing that lies before them. It is also a vivid portrait of their life in Homs, Syria, before the war, and of that city's swift transformation from a home into a deadly war zone.

Impelled to write this story by the haunting image of young Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015, Hosseini hopes to pay tribute to the millions of families, like Kurdi's, who have been splintered and forced from home by war and persecution, and he will donate author proceeds from this book to the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation to help fund lifesaving relief efforts to help refugees around the globe.

[Epub] Read Online: Little by Edward Carey

"An amazing achievement...A compulsively readable novel, so canny and weird and surfeited with the reality of human capacity and ingenuity that I am stymied for comparison. Dickens and David Lynch? Defoe meets Margaret Atwood? Judge for yourself." --Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked

The wry, macabre, unforgettable tale of an ambitious orphan in Revolutionary Paris, befriended by royalty and radicals, who transforms herself into the legendary Madame Tussaud.

In 1761, a tiny, odd-looking girl named Marie is born in a village in Switzerland. After the death of her parents, she is apprenticed to an eccentric wax sculptor and whisked off to the seamy streets of Paris, where they meet a domineering widow and her quiet, pale son. Together, they convert an abandoned monkey house into an exhibition hall for wax heads, and the spectacle becomes a sensation. As word of her artistic talent spreads, Marie is called to Versailles, where she tutors a princess and saves Marie Antoinette in childbirth. But outside the palace walls, Paris is roiling: The revolutionary mob is demanding heads, and . . . at the wax museum, heads are what they do.

In the tradition of Gregory Maguire's Wicked and Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus, Edward Carey's Little is a darkly endearing cavalcade of a novel--a story of art, class, determination, and how we hold on to what we love... Download Full Version►►

About the book:
The RZA, founder of the Wu-Tang Clan, imparts the lessons he's learned on his journey from the Staten Island projects to international superstardom. A devout student of knowledge in every form in which he's found it, he distills here the wisdom he's acquired into seven "pillars," each based on a formative event in his life-from the moment he first heard the call of hip-hop to the death of his cousin and Clan- mate, Russell Jones, aka ODB. Delivered in RZA's unmistakable style, at once surprising, profound, and provocative, The Tao of Wu is a spiritual memoir the world has never seen before, and will never see again. A nonfiction Siddhartha for the hip-hop generation from the author of The Wu-Tang Manual, it will enlighten, entertain, and inspire. (from Amazon)

What We're Reading This Summer

What We're Reading This Summer

by The Editors via Master Feed : The Atlantic


_Our Little Racket_by Angelica BakerEcco I read all 512 pages of Angelica Baker’s debut novel greedily, in one dizzying weekend, unable to put it down. Which is fitting, in a way: _Our Little Racket_follows the sudden downfall of a Lehman Brothers–esque CEO through the eyes of his wife, their teenage daughter, and the other women surrounding them, and as such it’s very much a story of greed and its out-of-control consequences. But the book gets beyond moneymaking hubris to a more basic kind of desire—the fretful, shapeless longing of those who are sidelined to be seen somehow as indispensable.

Binge-watchers of _Big Little Lies_will enjoy the elegantly cutthroat politics of suburban life in wealthy Greenwich, Connecticut, while fans of Elena Ferrante will like the sharp portrayal of the delicate power balances in women’s friendships. But any reader will appreciate the tightly woven drama of this book, which brings its five protagonists out of the margins of the crisis and into an explosive confrontation of their own.

Book I’m hoping to read:_Love in the Time of Cholera_by Gabriel García Márquez

Rosa Inocencio Smith, assistant editor

_The Idiot_by Elif BatumanFor Selin, the Turkish-American protagonist and narrator of Elif Batuman’s The Idiot, arriving at Harvard in the fall of 1995 is an occasion of great flourishing. Intellectual and experiential horizons are broadened. New technology, in the form of, yes, e-mail—“a glowing list of messages from all the people you knew, and from people you didn’t know … like the universal handwriting of thought or of the world”—makes apparent the complexities of our ever-evolving epistolary media. But it’s also a time of emotional confusion: Selin falls for a bland, apparently brilliant, Hungarian mathematician named Ivan. Several years her senior, he treats her as an odd curiosity, someone to be intrigued by but never quite taken with.

Penguin Press While Selin’s on-again, off-again pursuit of Ivan gives _The Idiot_its narrative spine, for me, the novel’s true pleasures are in the rapid maturation of her powers of observation. “Why was ‘plain’ a euphemism for ‘ugly,’ when the very hallmark of human beauty was its plainness, the symmetry and simplicity that always seemed so young and so innocent,” Selin muses. It’s a work of peculiar discovery, a portrait of t

What is a reasonable distance to ask our guests to travel?

Recently engaged and planning a wedding for 2022, so hopefully COVID won't still be a thing. We fell in love with a venue through photos and online reviews alone. It's very unique, very "us," and very highly rated. The only issue is that it's about 2-3 hours away with traffic from where most of our guests live (where we also live.) I hadn't considered that this would be considered a destination wedding until I reached out to the venue for more information and that was included in their response along with a recommended hotel.

The hotel seems a bit expensive to me but there are affordable Airbnbs very close by. The venue is in a really cute area that, should our guests want to stay overnight, they could definitely make a worthwhile weekend out if it. There are wineries and attractions other than the venue in the area.

If our guests don't want to drive or stay overnight, public transportation from our area would drop them within a 15 minute walk from the venue. It's affordable, but direct trains are extremely limited and take 3.5-4 hours from the most major area hub. There's a train station that runs more frequently within half hour driving distance, but travel time including driving would still be about 2 hours from the major transit hub. I had the idea to charter a shuttle that would take our local guests to and from the venue out of that station, but regardless it will be a lengthy commute, and I don't know what's reasonable to ask of our guests.

While we have our hearts set on this venue, I also have my heart set on everyone I care about being able to attend. I'd like to think that our wedding would be worth the cost/trek, but I'm sure every bride does as well. I'd love to get some thoughts and opinions before we book anything/proceed with more planning.

While unpacking books and putting them on the shelf, I noticed that I had marked a passage in The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I was curious, so I flipped to the flagged page and read this line:

"...I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded, not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night" (Ch. 25; p. 359 in the Riverhead trade paperback version that I have).

I love this line, because it reminds me that if we let them, pain and negative emotions will subside and leave us with a feeling of acceptance. It is a natural progression, a sort of incremental healing, that allows us to make peace with ourselves and with others who may have caused us pain.

I thought I had something more profound to say about this, but still, I hope that the quote resonates with at least one other SDer.

AiG, the Toledoth Hypothesis, and Pre-Flood Landmarks

(This is an old response I received to question I asked AiG a while back. Their answer was incredible, I honestly can't believe they didn't decide to publish it so I thought it'd be helpful to put it here. My question was, "I have a question about places mentioned in Genesis 2. I've always understood that, as you say, the rivers and places mentioned in the chapter must be post-flood places. My question is that I can't seem to see that when I read it. The chapter seems to be in the present-tense. For example, "And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first IS Pison: that IS it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there IS gold; And the gold of that land IS good: there IS bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river IS Gihon: the same IS it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia". (This even specifies to the reader which river it is, so the reader is assumed to be familiar with it) Why is this? Could Genesis have been at least partially written before the flood?")

(Their response):

Let me first of all state that there is some debate on Genesis 2:10-14 in Creation apologetic circles. Some think the passage is referring to post-Flood landmarks; others think it is referring to pre-Flood landmarks, and the post-Flood rivers and names were done in memory of those pre-Flood places. I personally prefer the latter explanation and I think it makes more sense of the text. I’ll flesh out my reasons below.

Regarding your question: most likely, Moses is using an anachronism here in Genesis 2. The Garden was pre-Flood but Moses (the author and probable editor of older written documents) was not. He was writing to a post-Flood Israel about the history of the world. Most likely Moses was copying written records from Adam (perhaps the book that was recorded in Genesis 5:1). This would have been finalized right before Adam died, and passed it along to his son Seth. Therefore this would have been approximately 930 years after Creation. By that time, landmarks and natural features had been named for people. Keep in mind that Methuselah (nine generations from Adam) was alive concurrently with Adam for some time, so there were many names to choose from to give place-names or natural feature names by this time.

Moses recorded these as Adam's written record had reminisced about them, and did not change the verb tenses. Genesis 2:10-14 is a parenthetical po

My friend is coming for the day to see me, but everything I would usually show people requires being outside (Caumsett, Avalon gardens, etc) and it’s going to be below freezing. Any suggestions for things to do indoors or drives to go on? Maybe some interesting places to visit to break up a drive?

First Chapter of High-Fantasy Series called The Saga of Skylark

Long time reader/commenter, first time poster on smurf account. I'm a full time writer who lives off grid in Alaska with just hotspot internet, so apologies for delay and simple formatting. This is a bit of a read (4700 words), but I hope it's well paced, engaging, and explanatory enough to balance the mystery. I have about 250 pages of mythologies and "Herstories" since my setting is a matriarchal Queendom, so I will try to post more if you like this! Cheers =)

The Saga of Skylark

Book One: The Child of Spring

Song One: A Small Hand of Time

Chapter One: A New Age

Skylar didn’t need the Grandwitch to foretell her sorry fate, she mused, slumping through the snow-dusted front gate—she was forever grounded in spite of her namesake.

“How do you like my snowman,” Markus surprised her, placing a small stick below two gray stones.

“It doesn’t look much like a snowman,” Skylar replied.

“What do you mean?” he squared the base. “A snowman can look like anything.”

“Yeah,” she said, "but it needs purple eyes.” Skylar palmed two halves of amethyst that she’d gathered in the sacred woods that day and replaced the gray stones above the protruding twig. “Now, it looks like a snowman!”

Markus laughed. “Whatever you say, my little-lady. You do realize that you’re in huge trouble, right?”

“Yeah, yeah,” she sighed, helpless to behave. “You have to make a woodrun for me tomorrow if I get grounded.”

“My little-lady, I love you dearly, but you’re always giving me extra work, and you know you’ll be grounded after today’s little stunt. Unfortunately, I have to deliver ten crates to the village tomorrow, and Old Lucy officially retired on me today after ten years.”

Skylar smiled tenderly, “She’s been the best helper for as long as I can remember. She deserves to retire.”

“You’re right,” Markus nodded. “I want her to be happy and lazy for the rest of her life. I mean, Hel, Old Lucy gave me a good two-years notice and never once went soft on me. But it blows snow that now I must haul the crates by handcart.”

She didn’t let him change the subject. “So, then, will you make a woodrun for me tomorrow before you deliver the herbs? They are better early, if they are wet with dew. You know you’re my favorite brother!”

“Sky,” Markus started in protest, but he was as helpless against his little sister’s bright violet eyes as she was against the rules of their mother—the esteemed Hall-Lady of Summer’s Edge, who was sweet but stern like frozen sap.

“But I’m your only

What are your go to place here on L.I.? and I mean all of them!

I have family from outside the country coming and visiting Long Island for the first time! Just about everything around here will be new to them, and I want to take them to all the special little places there around!

I'm talking local coffee shops, nature trails, peculiar stores, parks, beaches, villages, etc!

No answer is too obvious! If you can think of places that aren't even listed on Google maps, then you are a saint!

Edit: Many thanks for the responses! For those who particularly want to know, I live in the northern Brookhaven area of Suffolk. Nothing on the island is too far from me.

The KC Armstrong radio show syndicates to Orlando NOICE!

JVC Media Expands KC Armstrong’s ‘WMAP Radio’ Show to Orlando. The daily, one-hour radio program “WMAP Radio” starring former, longtime Howard Stern show cast member KC Armstrong is branching out from its home on WRCN, Riverhead, Long Island “103.9 LI News.”  JVC Media is syndicating Armstrong’s program and the first affiliate station is the company’s rock WOTW-HD2/W231CT “BUD 94.1” in📷 Orlando.  The program’s full title is “World’s Most Amazing People with KC Armstrong,” and the station says, “In this era of bad news, fake news, Internet trolls, and general weary cynicism, KC is making quite a positive impression on Long Island and expansion of his show is the next evolution.  KC, who many people remember as a cast member of Howard Stern’s terrestrial radio show back in the day, comes to this pursuit carrying some damn dramatic baggage.”  KC adds, “My first book comes out on October 27.  It’s called Simply Amazing and it includes my struggle with mental illness and health problems along with 11 of my most inspirational interviews.  This will be a wonderful opportunity to share this with listeners all over the country.” WRCN general manager Bruce Shepard says, “‘LI News Radio’ is proud to have served as the flagship station for KC Armstrong over the past year.  We look forward to the next evolution as his show’s expansion is sure to bring more access to celebrity guests and entertainment.”

Genesis 1-13


In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day. Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the third day. Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind.

IAM Maia Szalavitz, author of the first book to expose widespread abuse in 'troubled teen' programs & articles in, the New York Times, Washington Post, Mother Jones & Reason on toxic outcomes from boot camps, wilderness programs and other "tough love" tactics. AMA

Since academic psychologists and historians have failed to thoroughly investigate the consequences of unregulated behavior modification programs for teenagers, by default I have become a leading expert. My book Help at Any Cost: How the Troubled-Teen Industry Cons Parents and Hurts Kids (Riverhead, 2006) is the first book length expose of the roots of tough love in addiction treatment, the lack of evidence for its effectiveness and the evidence of extreme harm that it can do.

I got a paperback from an indie publisher of a book published in hardcover by an established publisher. Is this a common practice, or was the book printed without permission?

Earlier this week I ordered Florida, by Lauren Groff in a paperback form from Amazon. The hardcover version of the book, which I have seen in bookstores many times, appears like any other, normal book, and was published by Riverhead, which is a subsidiary of Penguin Random House. I was expecting a paperback in the same style as all the other paperbacks I have received, but instead it is very thin, with very small text. The back and side of the book are plain white, although the front of the book is the same. On the last page, it says “Made in the USA 06 July 2018”, the day I ordered the book. I was intrigued, so I checked on Amazon, where it said that unlike the hardcover, the paperback was published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Is there some reason that the paperback wouldn’t also be published by Riverhead? It just seems odd to me that a book published by a major publishing company would be simultaneously sold by a small independent “publishing platform”. I’d appreciate any insight from people more knowledgeable about publishing than I am. Thank you!

The #1 New York Times**-bestselling author of** The Kite Runner**,** A Thousand Splendid Suns**, and** And the Mountains Echoed responds to the heartbreak of the current refugee crisis with this deeply moving, beautifully illustrated short work of fiction for people of all ages, all over the world.

A short, powerful, illustrated book written by beloved novelist Khaled Hosseini in response to the current refugee crisis, Sea Prayer is composed in the form of a letter, from a father to his son, on the eve of their journey. Watching over his sleeping son, the father reflects on the dangerous sea-crossing that lies before them. It is also a vivid portrait of their life in Homs, Syria, before the war, and of that city's swift transformation from a home into a deadly war zone.

Impelled to write this story by the haunting image of young Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015, Hosseini hopes to pay tribute to the millions of families, like Kurdi's, who have been splintered and forced from home by war and persecution, and he will donate author proceeds from this book to the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation to help fund lifesaving relief efforts to help refugees around the globe.

Khaled Hosseini is one of the most widely read writers in the

Is Hypnotic Regression the Guru's Most Powerful Tool?

The Asian and Asian-model, psychotherapy and "human potential" (and "thought-reform") cults almost all utilize regression techniques not unlike -- albeit less dramatic than -- those made famous by Beatle John Lennon's psychotherapist Arthur Janov. While they're often straightforward about what they're doing, many are not. Moreover, almost all of the Western-style, evangelical, fundamentalist, pseudo-Christian cults utilize authoritarian principles in such fashion as to subtly induce infantilizing of their subjects to induce a state of childlike submission and dependency. Regression is, thus, the objective, whichever way it is accomplished.

In his utterly remarkable 1987 book, Waking Up, Charles Tart asserts that...

"The archaic regression dimension of hypnosis evolves from the experiences we all had as children in relating to our parents." [And moreover -- for those raised in cults -- in relating to the guru as the functional parent.] We were small, ignorant and almost powerless, with little self-understanding or internal control. Our parents were giants, possessed of knowledge, control and power far beyond our understanding. Compared to us, they were godlike. We developed an automatized perception of them as godlike, as understanding us, as expecting unquestioning obedience. In turn, they rewarded us by caring for our physical needs and loving [more accurately, "nurturing"] us. Our expectations were apparently validated.

"Underneath the surface of our [relatively] sophisticated adult selves, this set of automatic attitudes still exists and can operate without our knowledge. Freud spoke of it as 'transference': We transfer this childlike cognitive-emotional attitude onto some people in our world, often with confusing and unhappy results. ...

"One response to the induction of hypnosis is to unknowingly transfer the attitudes you had toward... your parents onto the hyp
