Hello, Todd.

If you don't mind, I'd like to ask you a question.  My question is:
(1) Do think that Dr. Dilts could be mistaken in his interpretation of the events surrounding his therapy work?

In another thread, I proposed four ways that nonlocal changes may be mistaken to occur between a therapee and her significant other.  Those ways are:
(2) the therapee (unconsciously) learned rapport skills from her therapist during her therapy, and led her significant other, by her nonverbals or vocals during the first few seconds (or longer) of a post-therapy conversation regarding the problem issue, to change his stance on the problem issue.
(3) the therapee, with whatever positive self-fulfilling prophecy she acquired during therapy, about her significant other's suddenly positive response to her changes, established during her therapy, led her significant other to volunteer that he also changed his attitude during the therapee's time in therapy.
(4) the therapee saw changes in her significant other's behavior that confirmed for her that her significant other had also changed, and the significant other volunteered that he had changed, when the therapee asked him, maybe because that was easier for him than saying, "No, I haven't, what should I do?".
(5) the significant other changed, by coincidence, sometime before the therapee's first post-therapy encounter with him.

Do you think that conditions (2) through (5) are plausible conditions in which Sarah could form the belief that:
(6)  nonlocal therapy changes actually occur as a result of Systemic NLP?

Another question I would like to ask you is:
(7) When forming conclusions about the plausibility of nonlocal changes in therapy, would an argument from analogy suffice, if the analogy claimed likeness between therapy and quantum effects?
