Thank you for your informed reply. I will reference your work. The reference I made was from a story E. told on an audio tape put out with the book "Creative Choice in Hypnosis". He said he spent a lot of time in the theater when in school. I note he also speaks in his "Teaching Seminar..." text about reading books backwards and guessing what comes before. He seems to be speaking to therapists about knowing good dramatic structure. Perhaps for helping them learn to tell really good stories? Which begs the question, does one generally trance during a good story or drama? I notice I do. The rising and falling of expectation, its subtext (implication),(separarates the good ones from bad--bad ones narrate), curiosity--i.e.,what's going to happen next, I'm totally open and fixated, etc. Also, of interest to me is the average length of a screenplay is roughly 90 minutes, the time of Rossi's "Ultradian Rhythm Cycle." I'm happy you've done work on this and I will read your material right away. Thanks.
