Patterns in Abduction Research

David M. Jacobs, PhD, a recently retired associate professor of history at Temple University, explains the importance of patterns in UFO abduction research in his latest book, Walking Among Us: The Alien Plan to Control Humanity.

In ‘Chapter One: Abductees and Their Testimony’, Jacobs says:

Once in a while, I hear something new … I am usually skeptical of these accounts and do not elevate that information to evidence until other abductees without knowledge of the previous testimony report the same thing. I wait for a pattern to emerge. In general, multiple descriptions of the same phenomena are the most important aspect of abduction investigation.

Later in the same chapter, Jacobs says:

One of the critical aspects of the abduction phenomenon is that abductees all say the same thing about what is happening to them, even though they do not share knowledge of each others’ experiences.

Subjects Aware of Previous Testimony

Jacobs features the cases of fourteen research subjects in Walking Among Us. He implies that these subjects were unaware of each others testimony, and that therefore the patterns in their testimony are significant.

However, contrary to what Jacobs implies, his methodology ensures that his subjects are, in fact, aware of the testimony of his other subjects. For example:

  • Jacobs tells his subjects directly, including while they are hypnotized, about his other subjects’ testimony.
  • Jacobs holds regular get-togethers with his current and former subjects at his home.
  • Jacobs updates his subjects on new developments.
  • Jacobs hires his subjects to transcribe each others hypnosis sessions.

Jacobs Discloses Previous Testimony

I am a former research subject of Jacobs, and he conducted 91 hypnotic regressions with me during 37 hypnosis sessions over a two-year period. He told me that I was one of three subjects with whom he had done the most hypnosis.

During my hypnosis sessions, Jacobs talked to me at length about the testimony of other subjects, including those whose cases he featured in Walking Among Us.

Jacobs told me that he was going to feature my case in the book. However, after I had ended my association with him, I withdrew permission for him to do so.

Bernard Davis and Eric

In Walking Among Us, ‘Introduction: The Back Story’, Jacobs says:

During a hypnosis session in 2003, Bernard Davis [pseudonym] told me an absurd story. He said he went to a Baltimore Orioles baseball game with his close friend, Eric. Yet Bernard knew nothing about Eric. He did not know his last name, where he came from, where he lived, what he did for wok, or how he had met him. However, he and Eric had been close friends for more than seventeen years. … They often met at restaurants; they drove to various places; they met in different countries during Bernard’s business trips; they went sightseeing. They also had long talks about how to live in human society. The problem is that Eric is a hybrid—a mixture of alien and human.

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 8: Learning about Relationships’, Jacobs says:

Friendship was a complicated subject for Eric to understand. They discussed the complexities of choosing a friend.

Jacobs Tells Me about Bernard and Eric

At the end of my fifth hypnosis session, after Jacobs had brought me out of the hypnotic state, he told me that Bernard had taught Eric how to be human, and that they had long conversations about friendship. Jacobs said that he would probably write about it in his next book.

Jacobs Tells Me about Eric’s Female Friends

At the end of my seventh hypnosis session, after Jacobs had brought me out of the hypnotic state, he told me that Bernard had taught Eric how to live on Earth like a human being. Jacobs said that they went fishing together, ate out together, went to a baseball game together, and had long discussions about how to be a friend. He said that Eric had mentioned that it was unusual for him to have a male friend, but that he had lots of female friends.

Eric Visits a Female Friend

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 6: Integrated Hubrids’, Jacobs says:

After the game was over, instead of going straight back to New York, they made a detour in Maryland to a university dormitory. Eric parked the car and told him to wait. A full forty-five minutes later, Eric came back and they continued going north. Bernard thought Eric was visiting a female “friend” there. He then dropped Eric off at another location and continued home.

Jacobs Tells Me about Eric “Servicing” Women

At the end of my seventh hypnosis session, after Jacobs had brought me out of the hypnotic state, he told me that Bernard had gone to a baseball game with Eric. Jacobs said that afterwards they went to a women’s dormitory, and Eric told Bernard to wait in the car. Eric was gone for forty-five minutes, and Bernard thought that he had gone to see a woman. Jacobs told me that Eric had a whole bunch of women whom he was “servicing”. He said that hybrids mainly deal with women, and that they have very long, extremely complex relationships with them over many years.

Betsy Nicholas/Elizabeth Smith

Jacobs uses the pseudonym “Betsy Nicholas”  for a subject whose case is featured in Walking Among Us.

Betsy herself has previously used the pseudonym “Elizabeth Smith” on her former blog. She has also used the pseudonyms “Becky” and “Karen”.

Jacobs says in Walking Among Us that Betsy named a hubrid associated with her “Jamie”, and a hybrid associated with her “Ken”. However, Betsy actually named the hubrid “Jay”, and the hybrid “Ben”. On her former blog she referred to them as “J” and “B”.

Before Walking Among Us was published, I presented information on this website about Jacobs’ handling of Betsy’s case, and I used her pseudonym “Elizabeth Smith”. Additionally, a number of people in Ufology have addressed Jacobs’ handling of Betsy’s case, using her pseudonym “Elizabeth”.

In my considered personal opinion, it is possible that Jacobs changed Betsy’s pseudonym in Walking Among Us from “Elizabeth Smith” to “Betsy Nicholas”, and changed the name of the hubrid she calls “Jay” to “Jamie”, and the hybrid she calls “Ben” to “Ken”, to reduce the chances of his readers coming across critical information, opinion, editorials, and comments already online about his handling of Betsy’s case.

Propagating the Narrative

In Walking Among Us, ‘Introduction: The Back Story’, Jacobs says:

… soon after Bernard started having sessions with me, other abductees began to give similar accounts of public interactions with hybrids.

Jacobs told me that Betsy had started helping hybrids to integrate into human society. He talked to me about this during my hypnosis sessions, as detailed further on.

In my opinion, it is probable that during Betsy’s hypnosis sessions, Jacobs talked to her about Bernard and Eric as he did with me, and that this led to her confabulating false hypnotic memories of similar events.

As a result of Jacobs talking to me during my hypnosis sessions about Bernard, Betsy, and other subjects helping hybrids to assimilate into human society. I too began to confabulate similar false hypnotic memories.

Betsy and Jamie

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 7: Adjusting to Life on Earth’, Jacobs says:

My most detailed examples of adjusting to everyday life come from Betsy’s experiences with an independent hubrid whom she named Jamie. In July 2005, Ken introduced Jamie to Betsy onboard and told her, “His task is to live here.” … Jamie had just moved into his apartment and it would be Betsy’s task to help him adjust to life on Earth.

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 7: Adjusting to Life on Earth’, Jacobs says:

Betsy taught Jamie everything she could about living in human society for the next two years—how to talk to people, how to dress properly, how to buy goods, how to drive, and myriad other behaviors for looking and acting human.

Jacobs Tells Me About Betsy and Jamie

During my eleventh hypnosis session, while I was hypnotized, Jacobs told me that Betsy was helping Jamie acclimate into the society. He said that Jamie had been situated near her, and that three to four times a week she had to go over to his place. She took him to stores, taught him how to buy things, told him what he should have in his refrigerator, and was helping him to blend in. Jacobs said that he did not know whether Jamie was living there 100 percent of the time, but that every time she went over, he was waiting in the car park. He said that from time to time they went to Walmart at night, but that most of her forays with him were in the morning.

Hubrid Driving Lessons

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 6: Integrated Hubrids’, Jacobs says:

Betsy not only drove hybrids and hubrids, she taught hubrids how to drive as well. … Ken instructed her to teach the young hubrids how to drive.

Jacobs Tells Me about Jamie’s Driving Lessons

During my eleventh hypnosis session, while I was hypnotized, Jacobs told me that Jamie wanted Betsy to teach him to drive.

Jamie and the Supermarket Cart

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 7: Adjusting to Life on Earth’, Jacobs quotes Betsy saying the following under hypnosis:

We walked in [to the supermarket] and he’s [Jamie] asking me what does he need to put in his refrigerator … I’m thinking maybe we should get a cart it it’s going to be a lot. He wants to know where the carts are and I said outside. There’s a lady walking in with one and she just gives it to him and she sort of goes back outside to get another one. And I said, “That’s not right. You shouldn’t do that.” … he didn’t realize it was inappropriate. I said, “If you need a cart, you go get your own. You don’t let somebody else give you theirs.” He says, “Okay.”

Jacobs Tells Me about Jamie and the Supermarket Cart

During my eleventh hypnosis session, while I was hypnotized, Jacobs told me that Jamie was in a supermarket and did not have a cart. Betsy was with him, and she said, “You have to get a cart.” He turned to a woman who had just come in with a cart, who immediately gave him her cart and went and got another one for herself. Jacobs said that Jamie had instantly communicated to the woman, “Give me you cart. Go get a different one,” which she had done. It brought disapproval from Betsy, who told Jamie, “You can’t do that. You don’t do that, That’s not good.”  This provoked a discussion about why it wasn’t good.

Jamie Tries a Raw Egg

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 7: Adjusting to Life on Earth’, Jacobs quotes Betsy saying the following under hypnosis:

He’s [Jamie] telling me he’s tried some foods, but he doesn’t know what other ones to try. … he told me he tried one of the eggs we bought and I’m telling him he has to cook the eggs, you can’t just eat them raw.

Jacobs Tells Me about Jamie Trying a Raw Egg

During my twelfth hypnosis session, while I was hypnotized, Jacobs told me that Betsy had looked in Jamie’s refrigerator in his apartment, and that there was nothing in it except a bottle of water. She told Jamie that he had to have things in his refrigerator if he wanted to blend in, because if someone looked in his refrigerator it would look like he hadn’t been living there. Jamie had no idea what to put in a refrigerator, so they went and bought some eggs, milk, and this and that. Jamie tried one of the eggs, but he didn’t like it, and it turned out that he hadn’t cooked it. Absolutely everything had to be explained.

Jacobs Told Me Much More

The examples I have provided here of Jacobs telling me about his other subjects’ testimony are just a fraction of what he told me. The recordings of my hypnosis sessions are full of him regaling me at length about his other subjects’ testimony.

Jacobs’ Subject Get-Togethers

Jacobs holds regular get-togethers at his home with his current and former subjects. (He told me that Dr. Roy Steinhouse, a Temple University psychiatrist and former Major in the U.S. Army, often sat in on the get-togethers.)

There is obviously a strong possibility of Jacobs’ current and former subjects discussing their testimony with each other at the get-togethers.

A Hybrid Assaults Betsy

In Walking Among Us, ‘Chapter 7: Adjusting to Life on Earth’, Jacobs says:

One afternoon in September 2005, Jamie showed up at Betsy’s home and his attention was immediately drawn to a splint on her arm. The night before, Ken had pushed her backward onto the floor as punishment for talking to me and thereby endangering Jamie. She put her arms back to break her fall and broke her wrist. Since I had known her, this was the second broken bone that resulted from abduction activity.

Jacobs Tells Me about Hybrids Pressuring Betsy

During my eleventh hypnosis session, while I was hypnotized, Jacobs told me that the aliens and hybrids were putting intense pressure on Betsy to keep quiet because they knew that she was talking to him. He said that they were so protective of Jamie that it was “beyond imagination”.

Jacobs Updates His Subjects on New Developments

At the get-togethers that he holds at his home, Jacobs updates his current and former subjects on new developments.

For example, during my eleventh hypnosis session, while I was hypnotized, Jacobs told me that he had held a subject get-together the previous Saturday night to discuss the hybrid pressure on Betsy. He said that Betsy was at the get-together, but that he did not indicate to the group that it was happening to her. According to Jacobs, most of the people at the get-together did not know quite what to think. The late Allison Reed (pseudonym), whose case is featured in Walking Among Us, was at the get-together, and said that she thought there was a line over which the aliens and hybrids would not cross. Jacobs said that they had all suddenly been thrust into uncharted territory.

Subjects Transcribe Each Others Hypnosis Sessions

Jacobs hires his subjects to transcribe each others hypnosis sessions. For example:

  • Jacobs sent Betsy the recordings of my hypnosis sessions to transcribe. She subsequently did not transcribe them, but he nevertheless left the recordings with her. Previously, she had transcribed other subjects’ hypnosis sessions.
  • The late Allison Reed, whose case is featured in Walking Among Us, transcribed many of Dr. Jacobs’ subjects hypnosis sessions, including my own sessions.
  • Brian Reed (pseudonym), whose case is featured in Walking Among Us, transcribed several subjects’ hypnosis sessions, including Bernard Davis’ and my own sessions.

Obviously, if a subject transcribes other subjects’ hypnosis sessions, they are aware of the testimony of those subjects.

Brian Reed told me that he thought he had confabulated false memories in his own hypnosis sessions partly because of having listened to the recordings of my hypnosis sessions.

Narrative Origins

In Walking Among Us, Jacobs implies that Bernard was the first subject to tell him about the hybrid integration on Earth. However, Brian Reed, who transcribed Bernard’s hypnosis sessions, told me that, in hindsight, Jacobs’ leading during Bernard’s sessions was “terrible”. Moreover, the narrative did not originate with Bernard. For more information about this, see:

Origins of the Narrative (Coming Soon)

An Undisclosed Agenda

In my considered personal opinion, the audio evidence that I have provided here proves conclusively that Jacobs’ statements in Walking Among Us implying that his subjects did not know other subjects’ previous testimony, and that therefore the patterns in their testimony is significant, are blatant lies.

In my considered personal opinion, Jacobs’ methodology, including leading and suggestion while conducting hypnosis, hosting get-togethers with his current and former subjects, updating his subjects on new developments, and arranging for his subjects to transcribe each others hypnosis sessions, purposely ensures that his subjects confabulate false hypnotic memories of a narrative that he wants, without regard to the effects on his subjects.

In my considered personal opinion, Jacobs’ statements in Walking Among Us are part of a deception intended to promote a narrative that he created though exploitation of his subjects, in order to further an undisclosed agenda.
