Not illustrated. 1908 Excerpt: ...developed melancholia or a true insanity, but most of his symptoms are paralleled in cases of severe neurasthenia. This case seems to have been marked by indecision, rashness, unaccountable enmity, and there are several signs of a highly nervous temperament, so that the prophetic frenzy was easily inducible. Another famous case is that of Nebuchadrezzar, who is pictured as eating grass like oxen, feigning animal life (Dan. iv, 33). There is an interesting case of pretended insanity. David, the refugee in the Philistine country, was in such danger that he simulated madness, " making marks upon the gate and letting his spittle fall upon his beard "--i. e., frothing at the mouth (I Sam. xxi, 13). As he was allowed to go free, it is possible that in Israel, as elsewhere in the ancient world, the lunatic was regarded as a sacred person. Disorders Resulting from Hypnotism THERE are some interesting cases which resemble disorders produced by something like hypnotic suggestion. Unless we are insistent for unnecessary miracles, there must be some such explanation of Moses's hand, which became leprous by putting it into his bosom, and was healed by the same process (Ex. iv, 6f.). Similarly we find a sufficient interpretation of the withering of Jeroboam's hand. The king stretched out his hand to seize the prophet whose message was so unwelcome, but his hand "dried up, so that he could not draw it back again to him" (I Ki. xiii, 4). Dr. Macalister explains this as "brachial monoplegia," but such manifestations are too common in hypnotic phenomena to require a cerebral disturbance. It is merely the cataleptic state in hypnotism. The most remarkable instance is that of Adam, who fell into a deep sleep, induced by Jehovah, during which one o...
