Pictured Left James E. Holmes HS portrait (top), picture posted to James’ Myspace page (yet we were told and are continually told that he had no social media sites), Pictured with friend during HS (the friend provided it to media), last picture is of Holmes from a video provided here within the post of a presentation given at Salk Institute during a “summer science camp.”
There have been a lot of conflicting reports already concerning who James E. Holmes is. First reports were that he was a “brilliant mind,” a neuroscience student who graduated top of his class and earning merit scholarships at University of Riverside. A recent video has been posted of James Holmes from a summer science camp at Salk Institute:
“The Salk Institute for Biological Studies is one of the world’s preeminent basic research institutions, where internationally renowned faculty probe fundamental life science questions in a unique, collaborative, and creative environment. Focused both on discovery and on mentoring future generations of researchers, Salk scientists make groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of cancer, aging, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and infectious diseases by studying neuroscience, genetics, cell and plant biology, and related disciplines.” http://www.salk.edu/
Notice in the video, Jeremy Holmes mentions that his “mentor” is a man named John Jacobson. I found this article that quotes John Jacobson trashing James Holmes.
John Jacobson helped guide Holmes during a 2006 summer internship at the University of California’s prestigious Salk Institute in San Diego and said the suspected gunman in the Colorado movie theater massacre was thickheaded, uncommunicative and irresponsible.
“He should not have gotten into the summer program,” Jacobson, 37, told the Los Angeles Times. “His grades were mediocre. I’ve heard him described as brilliant. This is extremely inaccurate.”
Holmes’ high school transcripts showed B’s and B pluses, and no Advanced Placement classes, Jacobson told the Times. (…) “My experience with him was quite bad,” said Jacobson, who is now a Ph.D. candidate at UC San Diego in philosophy and cognitive sciences. The experiment — involving a game of rock paper scissors — was designed to be programmed in Flash, a multimedia computer platform, but Holmes insisted on using an older program. For two weeks, “He was absolutely stubborn. I was at a loss to how to get him to program in an object-oriented way,” Jacobson said. “Finally, I said, ‘Do it any way you can.’ ” For the next six weeks, Jacobson dropped by the lab each day to make sure Holmes was present. But Holmes failed to finish the task. (end of quote)
John Jacobson stated that James Holmes was not “brilliant” and did not take AP (advanced placement) courses, but James Holmes’ friend from High School gives a different account.

Conflicting reports, Altered States, and Truth vs. Fact
I’ve read plenty of tweets, forums, and comments that people have left giving way to a vast number of conspiracies. Conspiracy 101, there’s always an element of truth to a “good” conspiracy. There may in fact be some truth to some of what people are postulating. The truth is we’ll never really know whether New Age Quantum fanatics who are more interested in transference and time displacement than human lives are at the center of all this or it was a case of some highly intelligent supernerd who got hooked on Oxycontin and went coo-coo-ca choo. James Holmes recent portrayal in the court Monday appeared vastly different than how the police and other agencies were trying to portray him. In court he appeared in-cognizant. I would say he was under the influence of mind altering drugs.
We’ll never really know who this person is/was. The people that Holmes was associated with (John Jacobson) are way out there; I listened to that John Jacobson video several times, especially the last 5 seconds of that video. I also watched a couple others from that same series to hear what those people are postulating. These type of people freak me out a little bit. They’re smart, but they don’t seem to have scruples, i.e, concern for what their ideas really mean when someone who’s diabolical takes control and thinks executing people in real life is some sort of “experiment” in the human psyche. I reiterate, listen to the last few seconds of Jacobson’s comments on that video. Disturbing.
