On the one hand, and as a means of an introductory idea which I shall analyse in detail throughout this chapter, I believe that, until today, it has been relatively strange for a spontaneous agreement between the mental structures of a participant and an instructor to take place, which has only happened in very special cases. On the other hand, in the Hypnagological Method, such “spontaneous agreement” is of utmost relevance and its cornerstone is the organisation of a learning process or the structuring of knowledge resulting fundamentally from the participant’s own activity. The fact of learning then turns into an effective capability of verbal action, which is logically bound to the appearance of mental schemes deriving from such action. These schemes stem from the active creation of acting situations, which have a very important role when they consist in the spontaneous elaboration of complete sentences in order to undertake a vigorous and assertive discourse in which mental reconstruction and combination takes place. We are not only dealing with the operational level of the target language, but also with the complete Gestalt of the situation, confronting the individual to his new reality, his new knowledge, with all the ease and confidence required in a situation of verbal communication. Nonetheless, in order for the participant to understand the new model of elements or to use new concepts, it is necessary to transform such set, which is immersed in his mental structure. I refer to the Prejudicial Myths, amongst other things. Therefore, the participant’s reference frame about himself and his linguistic abilities must be completely reformulated in most cases, widely re-elaborating his references. These mechanisms are almost never immediate, requiring conflict or interference phases.
