Why Jacob Can Only See One Leader at a Time

I think there may be a very logical explanation as to why Jacob’s rule is that only one leader can request an audience with him at a time. Jacob knows that MIB cannot kill him, and that he needs to find a loophole. That would mean that the day MIB found his loophole, he would probably want to be there to make sure his loophole gets the dirty work done. That would mean 2 people would be requesting to see Jacob, MIB and the loophole killer.
Could Jacob have made the rule as a method of protecting himself from his inevitible death? It seems logical.

  1. Yes…he very well could have…

    Its a good thought/observation.

    I would like to think that there are at least SOME rules that are actually made, and not just based on time travel…this I hope is one of them…
