Getting back to the Dr. Jacobs interview, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the part where the kind Dr. Jacobs elaborated on experiencer confabulation. One of the threats to his research, asked by Alex, was his own objectivity. I think that was questioned by statements he attributed to Dr. John Mack, which has been refuted by a number of sources. I have a wonderful interview here PBS Nova did in 1996 with Dr. Mack about his alien abduction research. Here, the eminent Dr. Mack maybe gets close to revealing his own notions about the role of consciousness raising in the human species.
