There are nine pendulum clocks in my house, eight of which are working. However, in only two of them is the pendulum visible. Watching the pendulum is hypnotic...."you are getting sleepy...". I was hypnotized once as part of a group training session. It's rather a weird feeling. I was aware, but not completely in control. Have you ever been hypnotized? Care to share?
