John pastes into his file a clipping about two children revived after death (sorry about the antique rubber cement). He speculates that they may be part of a pattern, and that the novel The Midwich Cuckoos (about a wave of pregnancies following a UFO landing) may not be entirely fictional. A contactee, Gladys Fusaro, gives him a message from someone called Dalmoona, and he’s visited by another contactee, Barbara Hudson, after which his phone goes dead. Jaye Paro tells him her apartment was broken into, and an unknown woman calls to tell him to meet her on Mt. Misery. A busy couple of days!

As we come to July 1967, Jaye Paro’s messages from Apol/Appel are becoming more Biblical in tone. She is identified as their “messenger” (whoever “they” are), and John is told that she needs his help, and that he should believe and trust. This sounds more like classic channeling than hoaxing to me; but, as always, it’s a “confusing situation.” John notes Paro’s claim that the Montessori schools are infiltrated by aliens (the schools, by the way, are not Catholic), and responds to the messages with a letter in similar tone and style.

We continue with John’s “Special Cases” file. For those coming in late, it contains his running notes on UFO and contactee activity in 1967, some of which he used in The Mothman Prophecies. He was getting many more reports from Long Island than Point Pleasant, much of it about Jaye Paro, a radio personality at WBAB in Babylon, N. Y., and her supposed contacts with two figures named Apol and Agar. It’s not clear if they’re aliens, but they’re apparently not quite human. Many of her stories are ridiculous, all are strange, and John is trying to keep up with them. I should point out that he doesn’t necessarily believe them; he’s intrigued by their similarities to other contactees’ tales, and suspects she may be passing on information from another source.
In these next few pages, John notes some questions for Paro’s contacts, and discovers that none of his calls to her showed up on his phone bill. Rivalino da Silva was a Brazilian prospector; his son Raimundo reported that his father was abducted by two floating spheres in 1962. Revelation 1:19 is “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.” 20:7-8 is “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.” John also pastes into his record a clipping about the Pope; on June 19, Paro had passed along a prophecy that the Pope would soon be assassinated.
So, follow along with John as he tries to figure out what’s going on…
