Special Cases – The Long Island File (47): Another Visit to Long Island

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:34 pm

Well, as we all expected, the 26th came and went, and the Pope was not assassinated. John visits Jaye in Long Island, and reports on Apol’s replacement (Rubin), twin Agars, stolen pigs, and other strangeness; they visit a Montessori school (John thought there might be an alien connection), and talk with another contactee, Louise. John also visits Ivan Sanderson, who has more oddities to report.

Jaye also tells John that the aliens want her to marry him, and have children. When I first read that, I thought it might explain a lot of her behavior, that her interest in John was primarily sexual. Now, I’m not so sure; she could have just been trying to shock and confuse him. But who knows?

Special Cases – The Long Island File (46): Jaye’s Notes of Some of the Messages

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:13 pm

John’s “Long Island File” continues with fourteen pages of Jaye’s messages from Apol and Agar. I won’t post them all; here’s John’s introductory page (that’s his handwriting), Jaye’s first page, and another page with a note by John.

Some of the messages prophecy an upcoming apocalypse. Others complain that the messenger (Paro) refuses to comply with all of their requests, and that the council is displeased with her. They warn that “calamity will fall if our directions are not followed carefully,” and ask, “Is it because we do not understand your minds and ways?”

Mixed in with this are frequent passages from the Bible. I Googled some, and found verses from Ezekiel, Isaiah, Proverbs, Leviticus, and Matthew. Some are garbled; most seem to come from the Douay-Rheims translation (favored by many Catholics). On one page, John notes that one verse from Proverbs was, somehow, underlined in his own Bible. Naturally, this disturbs him.

So, was Paro channeling or hoaxing, or both? As I’ve said in the comments, John wasn’t the first investigator to contend with a puzzling and unreliable witness. And what are to we make of that underlined verse?

Special Cases – The Long Island File (45): So Much for Today’s Mysteries

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:03 pm

We now come to July 24, 1967, in John’s Long Island file. The day for the aliens’ prophecies is approaching, and John’s daily life is only getting stranger. On this day alone, Jaye Paro reports a visit from Agar and another alien, John questions Agar (through Paro), Paro’s mail and drawings are stolen, Harold Serkin (I don’t know who he was) reports on strange phone calls in Washington, D. C., Serkin’s call is interrupted by whistling sounds when John mentions the Pope, Paro gets more baffling messages (Rey vis eug?), and John finds out that a map in his apartment has been altered. We also learn how Agar opens eggs. All of this, as usual, should be taken with a grain of salt (the aliens like salt).

Resting (Let’s Hope) In Peace

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:23 am

John died eight years ago, on July 3, 2009. I’m sure he’d be glad to know we’re still reading him. He’s shown here picnicking with friends, sometime in the late ’90s.

Special Cases – The Long Island File (44): To Whom It May Concern

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:32 pm

It’s July 23, 1967, and the day for the android’s prophecies approaches. John sends a letter to some of his close associates, just in case. Ivan would be Ivan Sanderson, but I can’t identify the others. He also writes a letter to those supposed androids, and receives two messages from them, I assume through Jaye Paro.

Special Cases – The Long Island File (43): So Many Things Are Happening

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:32 pm

John sends another letter to the purported Androids, with a test to find out if they can read his mind. He pastes some clippings into the record, about a Soviet claim of a propaganda campaign mounted by the U.S. and about an earthquake that might delay the Pope’s planned visit to Turkey. He follows with a report on more strangeness, and on odd phone calls received by Jaye Paro, Ivan Sanderson, and others. As he says in his report, he’s having trouble keeping up with all of it.

Special Cases – The Long Island File (42): The Story So Far

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 7:54 pm

As July, 1967, continues, John sends another message to the Androids, quoting the poem “The Seeing Eye,” by Margaret L. Farrand. For some reason, he omits the 7th and 8th lines: “He saw the hill and the tree and the cloud / With an artist’s mind and eye.” Exodus 22 contains laws prohibiting the theft of livestock. The next day, he reprises “the story so far.” There are some surprises. I think this is the first time the prophesied assassins are described as “Zionist terrorists.” Also, the prophecies had been described before as coming from the Third Secret of Fatima, not the Bible.

Special Cases – The Long Island File (41): Know That My Anger Is Born of Frustration

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:01 pm

Jaye Paro reported that she had attended the “Council of the Ten Men,” and that the assembled Androids had discussed John’s plans for a public UFO demonstration. They also warned that the Pope would soon be assassinated, and that three days of darkness would follow. John wrote a letter to the Council, presumably through Jaye. At this point, he’s frustrated and alarmed, and seems to believe at least some of Paro’s stories. We’re still in July, 1967, and there’s more to come.

Special Cases – The Long Island File (40): Jaye Paro’s Notes

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:50 pm

Jaye Paro kept notes on her supposed meeting with “The Ten Men,” and John included them in his file. There are ten pages, apparently hastily written, with many misspellings and abbreviations. She doesn’t mention her more sensational stories (like the dead bodies and blood drinking), but notes John’s request for a public UFO demonstration and the response. There are also repeated appeals for John to believe and trust the androids (although they admit they’ve done nothing to earn it), apologies for their nonsensical behavior, and passages from the Bible. The last page is signed “Appell,” and closes with, “And now I am going to him who sent me. A word of comfort – Let not your heart nor your mind be troubled. Believe in God and Believe in me. For in my father’s house there are many mansions. I speak more words tomorrow for the M[essenger] is not well & must rest.” Under this, Jaye has written “Prennial.”

This, like much of Paro’s material, sounds to me like channeling, or automatic writing. Back in 1967, John continued to try to figure it out.

I’ve posted the first three pages below. The date in the margin on the first page, March 25, 1930, was John’s birthday.

Special Cases – The Long Island File (39): The Council of the Ten Men

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:24 pm

Jaye Paro’s tales now becomes even more implausible, as she reports her visit to the Council of the Ten Men. The androids (apparently also called “The Third Group”) discuss John’s proposal for a public UFO display, show Jaye bodies on tables, drink blood, and offer a set of signals that UFOs will flash during an upcoming blackout. John is elated at the news, and we can only hope that he remembers his caveat: “If Jaye is not making up all of this…”
