Once again David M. Jacobs has released his final word on the Emma Woods allegations. Her allegations have stayed consistent for the last what? 9 years? Yet his answers keep evolving. So now we’ve got the FINAL final FINAL word, which he will inevitably edit once she again shows him to be a con artist.
Or is he mentally ill?
Or is it both?
Or does it matter?
Here’s my question: We all know it’s one of the two, right? Sane people can’t take him seriously when he says, “I know this is going to sound crazy, but….” and then launches into an explanation of how he put a number of subjects under hypnosis and told them they had multiple personality disorder, which is what he’s studying, so that alien/human hybrids would read their minds and leave him alone. No, it doesn’t sound crazy, it sounds like bullshit–but it may actually be

Here is a potted plant outside my front door. Notice the vine that has come to say hello. That vine traveled from across the fence and over concrete to meet the plant. The plant’s roots are in a pot on concrete, obviously not in the ground. So then… how did the vine know it was there?
Perhaps what we see as a vine growing is, to the vine, more like traveling. The vine isn’t just growing, it’s walking–and with purpose. This is self-evident and does not need study. Repeatability before the human eye is needed for inventions that could kill us, like the elevator or the rollercoaster, but when we observe nature being nature, it’s always being nature.

Doctor–yes, a real doctor–Tyler Kokjohn sits down with Jeff Ritzmann and me to answer a boatload of questions we’ve never asked him. These range from, Does the brain compartmentalize memeory in such a way that telepathic beings might not be able to read everything even if they seem to know us better than we know ourselves?, to, Do funding issues force entities like NASA to be dishonest with the public with what they think is out there in the universe so that now, everything is hyped up by leading the story with its most extraordinary potential find?

As Paratopia Oculus continues to jostle our minds and reinvigorate our thinking, we need a better way to connect with each other and connect all our ideas. You demanded it, we delivered. The Paratopia Forum has returned.
Go there. Look to the right. Click. You’re home.
It’s time. Time for Jeff Ritzmann and I to reunite and give listeners what they crave: a show where we go deeper into our own experiences and the mysteries surrounding phenomena that have baffled humanity from time immemorial.
Although we will feature guests now and again, Paratopia Oculus will not be another of the same old same old format. Mainly, it’s Jeff and I tackling these things as only we can. So, if you thought our after chats were the best part of Paratopia, this show is for you. If you have a string of thought you’d like us to tug on, give it to us. We need to flesh out these issues from different angles–including, importantly, your own.
While there will be no monthly or yearly recurring billing options, we are adhering to a pay-per-episode structure, although the first is free. There will be no iTunes freebie first half and then the rest pay…
