Alien abduction researcher Dr. David Jacobs joined George Knapp for a discussion on ET hybrids as well as the recent attacks on his work. He made the case that, based on the evolution of what has been learned about abductions, the purpose of the phenomena is ultimately for ET hybrids to be integrated into our society.
Jacobs noted that the timetable for this integration had seemed nebulous until around 2003, when he began hearing from abductees that "they were here." So cumulative were these reports that Jacobs concluded that "not only is it happening soon, it's happening now." While he admitted that the agenda behind the hybrid integration remains a mystery, Jacobs was suspicious of it because of the ETs' clandestine nature and that, given their apparent abilities to control human minds, this hybridization has the potential to "make us a second class species."Regarding the recent criticisms of his work by a former research subject, Jacobs said that "I'm not embroiled in a fight, I'm just sitting back and watching this thing swirl around." He responded to the critique that, as a historian, he is not qualified to use hypnosis on potential abductees by contending that the abduction phenomenon is so unique and specialized that "regular hypnotists cannot do this."
To that end, he said that hypnotists and people in the mental health field often "throw up their hands and don't know what to do" with potential abductees and, in turn, refer them to him. As such, he asserted that one person's criticism of his methods should "absolutely not" call into question the legitimacy of hypnosis being used in abduction research. Despite that, he lamented that the "diabolical aspect" of these recent criticisms is that they do indeed threaten to "sully all of hypnosis and all of abductions."
Biography:David Jacobs, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of History at Temple University specializing in twentieth century American history and culture. He began researching the controversy over unidentified flying objects in America in the mid 1960s, and has amassed over 35 years of primary research data and analytical hypotheses on the subject. Dr. Jacobs has written and delivered many articles, papers, and addresses on the subject of UFO abduction, and has been a consultant to the major UFO organizations. In recent years he has concentrated on ascertaining the proper methodological techniques for the hypnosis and therapy of abductees.
