"If there is a single type of trance state the continuous representation [of data on trance induction procedures/ characteristics differences] should be more accurate than the discrete representation(188)"
Original data correlated with continuous representation of the data using multidimensional scaling (gamma=0.79 for 3-D and gamma=0.70 for 2-D) vs. representation of the data divided into discrete types using cluster analysis (gamma= 0.55)
