Good Morning, All -

Actually, it is the same side of the coin. If they are leading
their abductees, clients, subjects, experiencers, then we have
the first step into the allignment of them with those conducting
the research. I thought I had mentioned that CDB Bryan's
interview with Mack (page 270-71 hardback) in which Mack said,
"And there's another interesting dimension to this... which Budd
Hopkins and Dave Jacobs and I argue about all the time, which is
that I'm struck by the fact there seems to be a kind of matching
of the investigator with the experiencer. So what may be the
archetypal structure of an abduction to Dave Jacobs may not be
the uniform experience of, say, Joe Nyman or John Mack or
someone else. And the experiencers seem to pick out the
investigator who will fit their experience."

So, here is Mack saying, essentially, the same thing that Jim
has said, and that we saw in our research. Mack has said that
experiencers take on the archetypal structure of the
investigator doing the regression. He is not saying, nor am I
implying, that this is a universal, but it is an observation
that apparently has been made by Mack, Hopkins, and Jacobs and
is of enough importance that Mack has mentioned it to various

And there are two points to be made here. One, this implies, to
some extent, leading the witness, and two, it implies that the
views of the researcher are given to the subject.

On page 25 of 'The Threat' (hardback), Jacobs discusses his
sessions with Pam, which, I think, makes the point once again.
Jacobs wrote, "I had over thirty sessions with Pam, and during
that time she has come to have a less romantic idea about what
has been happening to her. She was initially disappointed that
what she remembered under hypnosis were not the pleasant
experiences she had imagined, but she now accepts the reality of
what has been happening to her. She realized that neither
guardian angles nor the Pleiades have anything to do with her
experiences, and that she cannot manipulate time and reality."

In other words, Pam arrived at Jacobs' door believing that her
experiences were pleasant and might reflect her interaction with
what she saw as a guardian angel. After undergoing hypnosis with
Jacobs, she now realizes the threat and that the experiences
were not pleasant. She wasn't visited by New Age philosophers of
John Mack or cold, calculating scientists of Budd Hopkins, but
the alien invaders of David Jacobs... she came with one set of
beliefs and left with a different set which, matches, more
closely, the beliefs of David Jacobs.

So, through the interviews with Mack by Bryan, and by reading
Jacobs' book, we find that the researchers are agreeing with
what Jim has said here. That there is this matching of
experiencers with researchers.

But you see, it's not necessary to give you poll numbers when
the researchers you quote are saying the same thing. Mack has
said it and Jacobs has said it. So the studies you request can
be found in Bryan (in the chapter about Mack with the quotes on
page 270) and throughout Jacobs' THE THREAT.

So, rather than burden you with numbers from our study, I'll
just point you at Mack and Jacobs. You could probably throw
Nyman and Hopkins into the mix since the four of them discuss
this and have differing points of view about it.

Or, another way of looking at this is that Jim has supplied you
with the specific poll numbers of his research and I have
supplied you with the studies from others. The question has been
asked and answered, more than once.
