James Holmes Movie Shooter Video at 18 – Talking about Real Life vs Fantasy – His “Mentor”

In this video, James E. Holmes is said be 18 years old (6 years ago), speaking at a Science Camp. He is talking about “Temporal Illusions,” which he describes as “an illusion that allows you to change the past.” He speaks of his mentor’s (see below) interest in “fantasy vs. reality,” and “Subjective Experience.” Of interest, beyond the obvious in this video, is the news that he was one of about a half-dozen students to receive a Federal grant from the NIH to study neuroscience with a focus on training “outstanding neuroscience students who will make a significant contribution.” If you have missed the story of the Aurora, Colorado murders at a Batman: The Dark Knight Rises midnight viewing, find the details here. To read about and honor the victims, visit Michelle Malkin. In the ABC video below, you’ll also see items from Holmes’ apartment, taken to a field and detonated.

About his mentor, he also says:

He also studies subjective experience which is what takes place inside the mind as opposed to the external world. I carry on his work in Subjective Experience.

    The program usually enrolls only six students per year and typically takes five to seven years to complete. Those who are admitted “are very bright students,” Meyers said. He added that Holmes, along with the other five students in his class, received a $26,000 stipend from the National Institutes of Health. An agency of the U.S. Department of Health…so more of our tax dollars.


    • Kathleen, thanks for this information and the link. $26,000 sounds like a fairly nice “stipend.”

  • I betcha anything that he has a mental disorder.

    • Fran, no doubt but I don’t think he’s insane.

  • Some schizophrenics are exceptionally bright.

    • I do not even know how I finished up here, however I thought this put up was good. I do not realize who you’re but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger in the event you aren’t already. Cheers!

  • Maggie,
    With due respect: PLEASE stop referring to this mass murderer as a “shooter” and this massacre as a “shooting.”

    Every conflation of the valid and necessary sport of “shooting” with MURDER is a win for the Left. I am a shooter. I do shootings all the time. Cans, targets, whatever sits on the stick.

    Our language is being constantly corrupted and raped: “Rights” and “Justice” and “Democracy” have been denied their meanings by totalitarian-leaning simpletons. Please, let us reclaim these words. Please let us not deny what the murderer did: It wasn’t a “shooting” – he committed a cowardly massacre.


    • Your right Yos. I’ll try to go back and make some changes.

    This is a sad news. My deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this tragic incident. Someone created a memorial page for these victims on Evertalk within Facebook. There is a memorial fund on this page and people can donate to help the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy. Here’s the page.

    • Jacklyn Johnson

      May their friends and families find comfort. Thanks for the heads up on the Evertalk memorial page Christina. I will make sure to visit it.
