Afterwards, on the second night, accidentally clicked over to an interview with David Jacobs (with clips from Budd Hopkins) which I might not have chosen to watch. Even so, became interested. Not because I actually liked Jacobs' on-screen persona (he came across as quite opinionated) but because he seemed to construct some interesting logical constraints, which lead to some alarming (also seemingly logical) conclusions. I.e that the Earth's human population is being invaded or assimulated by a program of alien 'hybrid' introductions. Now I'm not a ufologist and therefore wouldn't dare offer advice on that subject but, due to extensive reading in historical and folk-lore fields, when Jacobs was later talking about the psychological dangers to the 'experiencers', I couldn't help but think of the basic rules handed down - throughout history - to similar experiencers of much earlier dangerous encounters with 'entities'. [Before listing them, must agree with one of the contributors to that video that he - and I - would be extremely unlikely to experience such physical or mental 'invasions', purely due to our technical and scientific upbringings and careers, which seem to preclude sensitivity to those high strangeness events.] Jacobs's accounts indicate that the 'invaders' contact and instruct people mostly at night/mainly telepathically/and are deceptive and sometimes destructive BUT seem to follow a logic and a set of rules of their own. That is strangely like the histories of other-worldly encounters we find stretching back for millenia. Therefore, by following the ancient rules as laid down, modern experiencers could maybe protect themselves. History's rules: historical accounts say that religious 'believers' can escape any danger by calling on their God. But the accounts also say that non-religious folk can also be immune IF they address the entity(s) logically, first asking for a name/identity, and then for a reason or motive for the visitation, and then proceeding rationally and dispassionately. The few recurring cases also stress the importance of repeating that formula on each visitation; perhaps to re-establish the identity of the entity, or maybe to re-state the rules of the game. This might all seem a bit wild and esoteric, yet, along with Vallee and Hynek, am inclined to think 'total ufology' has strong linkages with historical and even mythical events, so re- stating those rules of conduct might help some folk who need it. After all, it might be mainly a matter of 'convictions' (in which case our politicians are doomed). Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
