"Alfred Elton van Vogt ( April 26, 1912 – January 26, 2000) was a Canadian-born science fiction author regarded as one of the most popular, influential and complex practitioners of the mid-twentieth century, the genre's so-called Golden Age. " "In 1944, van Vogt moved to Hollywood, where his writing took on new dimensions after World War II. He was always interested in the idea of all-encompassing systems of knowledge (akin to modern meta-systems) —the characters in his very first story used a system called "Nexialism" to analyze the alien's behavior, and he became interested in the general semantics of Alfred Korzybski. He subsequently wrote three novels merging these overarching themes, The World of Null-A and The Pawns of Null-A in the late 1940s, and Null-A Three in the early 1980s. Null-A, or non-Aristotelian logic, refers to the capacity for, and practice of, using intuitive, inductive reasoning (compare fuzzy logic) , rather than reflexive, or conditioned, deductive reasoning."

Russia has been employing its principles and German psychologists were able to condition the minds of an entire nation for fiendish war. But in America, although some of the principles have been known - general interest has been lacking. Hypnotism, a branch of psychology, has not yet recovered from a bad start. Never thoroughly understodd by its practitioners, it eventually became the tool of charlatans and tricksters." "During hypnosis, a person is said to have heightened focus and concentration. The person can concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory, while blocking out sources of distraction. Hypnotised subjects are said to show an increased response to suggestions. [8] Hypnosis is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction involving a series of preliminary instructions and suggestion. The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as "hypnotherapy", while its use as a form of entertainment for an audience is known as "stage hypnosis". Stage hypnosis is often performed by Mentalists practicing the art form of Mentalism." ; Signed by Author

Born in Palo Alto, California, McGill became interested in magic as a child (and was later considered legendary in magic circles) , but first studied hypnosis in 1927 while still a teenager. He wrote the seminal Encyclopedia of Genuine Stage Hypnotism(the acknowledged bible of stage hypnotism) in 1947, and continued to teach courses and lecture right up until a few days before his death. He died in his native Palo Alto. He has explained in his book about position of chicken that present them as motionless and appear as hypnotized. McGill explained that the reason for a chicken's hypnotism was due to the tonic indolence that the chicken adopts to save itself from predators by bluffing them as being dead."
