Is Supporting David Jacobs A Moral Question?

Joe Gooch has responded eloquently to David Jacobs’ self-destructive website dedicated to exonerating himself of unethical conduct in regards to former research subject “Emma Woods.”

Who is Joe Gooch? He’s an experiencer. He’s a human being. He’s not a talk show host. He’s not a researcher. He’s an observer of this fiasco, an outsider with no agenda. And watching him in the video below–watching how uncomfortable this man gets at speaking about the truly uncomfortable parts–the anger and despair boiling underneath the mature composure of his presentation reminds me why I care so much about this case: because in reality it is a simple moral question with a simple moral answer. It’s not about facts vs. other facts or spinning a story.

The David Jacobs case, as it should now rightly be referred, is about ethics and, beyond that, morals.

And so, anytime I see someone taking up for Dr. Jacobs who otherwise appears to be of sound intelligence, I don’t see a “We agree to disagree” situation, because there are not two sides. There’s right and there’s wrong. It is a black & white situation which reminds us that such still exist.

If you’re still taking up for David Jacobs, still think it’s a matter of disagreement or of critics attacking him, I believe there is something fundamentally wrong with you. There is no middle ground on this one. You’re the problem, too. Why that is, be it for money or a glitch in the brain or your upbringing, I cannot say. I just know there’s something magnetically off in your moral compass. Joe Gooch’s reactions here are real and they are normal and he’s holding back the way I don’t, so perhaps that’s more palatable than my evaluations. If so, give it a watch.

If you’re unfamiliar with the David Jacobs case, this is an excellent primer. If you’re familiar and feel nothing about it, or take Jacobs’ “side,” behold the basic human compassion you’re missing inside of you as exemplified here. That, because everything Joe is saying is factually accurate and it’s from David’s own website. All Joe is doing is listening, reading, explaining, and reacting with the normal amount of emotion such critiques provoke.



Missing Time: A Question To Ponder


Why don’t people who have near-death and out-of-body experiences have missing time?

–especially if one component of “alien abductions” is to preserve the secrets of death?

–especially if one hypothesizes the same neurological explanation for abductions, OBEs, and NDEs?

–especially if one hypothesizes that abductions take place in an abnormal state of consciousness or a subspace bubble wherein the brain cannot be imprinted with memory like normal?

The Nightmare

Just watched a documentary called The Nightmare. Ostensibly, it’s about sleep paralysis. Problem is, some experiences don’t involve sleep. Some don’t involve paralysis. Some involve more than one person. And most of the experiencers don’t find the medical definition for sleep paralysis meaningful. What a refreshing documentary!

It’s streaming on Netflix now, for those with that service. Do check it out. And if you’re an observer or member of the ufological club, ask yourself what would happen with these people if they went to a hypnotist. I couldn’t help but think that every one of them, in the hands of a David Jacobs, would retrieve a story of rapey hybrids, then be asked for their undergarments for study or offered a genitalia defense mechanism he found in a sex shop. Then he’d be welcomed on all of the radio shows that claim to take this seriously. Then be invited to speak at any UFO conference he likes. Then be given an award by MUFON. Then be defended by sicko-phants.

Oh, sorry. I fell asleep. Had a bad dream there. The one where the promoters of truth-seeking didn’t give a shit and the audience that patted itself on the back for thinking outside the box of the mainstream was equally full of shit. The one where guest speakers at conferences were nothing more than self-appointed experts, con men, and glorified book reviewers. The one where….
