A substantial body of evidence does not support the mind-body dualistic model on both epistemological and clinical grounds. In order to overcome the dichotomy between Mind and Body, a new paradigm based upon Chaotic Complex Systems Theory and Quantum Mechanics is proposed. Accordingly, Mind/Body interface represents a chaotic system, ruled by the probability principle, as shown in subatomic physics and quantum mechanics, rather than by the deterministic principle of causality. Patterns of chaotic behavior can be found in neuronal activity and applications of chaotic patterns seem to be relevant for mind-body research and the process of trance. A Quantum Consciousness theory has been proposed, largely controversial, since Quantum Physics applies to subatomic world and not to macrostructures, such as the brain. Quantum cognition is an emerging field which applies the mathematical formalism of quantum theory to explore and model cognitive phenomena such as information processing by the human brain. It overcomes limits and shortcomings of cartesian dualism as well as quantum general theory. As hypnosis is a discrete state of consciousness, it applies to hypnotic cognitive functioning rather than hypnotic structure.
Keywords: Consciousness, hypnosis, chaos, quantum physics, quantum cognition, quantum-like hypnosis
