Vale John Keel

I've just found out the very sad news that legendary Fortean researcher John A. Keel has died. Along with Jacques Vallee, one of the very first to think 'outside the box' when it came to paranormal phenomena, Keel was a primary influence on most researchers in recent decades. His book The Mothman Prophecies remains one of the most well-known cryptozoology (and paranormal) works, and other books such as Operation Trojan Horse were instrumental in looking past the 'nuts and bolts' UFO hypothesis. His trickster personality led to a controversial reputation, but there can be no denying his influence.

John Keel was 79.

Even though the customary response is 'Rest in Peace', I suspect that Mr. Keel would rather be uncovering the secrets of the other side, instead of merely resting.

Safe passing, Mr. Keel.

I watched the Mothman Prophecies movie for the first time this past weekend#, and I was going to buy the book this week. Unbelievable. I'm not saying I'm connected in any way, just that synchronicites never cease to amaze me.

John has joined the pioneers who find out what's on the other side, but through the Mothman, I think he may have discovered a few things on this side of the veil before passing -- and he was generous enough to share his discoveries with us, for which I'll be forever grateful.

#The Mothman Prophecies is a film I've always wanted to see, but never got around to doing so. I bought the dvd a few months ago, but for reasons of busy-ness and procrastination, it's sat on my shelf unwatched. I watched it this past weekend because of what I twittered about on July 4th. Just a couple of weeks ago, I suddenly woke up after having only been asleep for about 30 minutes, and saw a shadowy humanoid figure wearing a brimmed-hat standing in my bedroom doorway. I just had to watch the film after this!
