The following article is about the disclosure of classified information pertaining to Project Serpo; a top secret exchange program betweens human
beings and extraterrestrials which is believed to have occurred circa 1965. According to the story, 12 volunteers from the military boarded an alien
spacecraft along with extraterrestrial entities known as "Ebens". The twelve brave explorers traveled to the Ebens' home Planet called "Serpo",
which orbits the double-star Zeta Reticuli over 30 light years from Earth. Beginning last November, someone who wishes to be known only as
"Anonymous" began relating this secret information to a UFO researcher. Since that time, Anonymous' information has been posted widely on the
internet, and has fueled a great deal of speculation among the public.
I, like Anonymous, wish to withhold my true identity and be known only by my username "Flatwoods". That being said, I would like to contribute my
own theory to this discussion; a theory which pertains to the identities of the infamous "Serpo Twelve".
In his cryptic e-mails, Anonymous has provided us with the identification numbers of the twelve individuals who were supposedly sent to the Ebens'
home planet of Serpo. He has not, as of yet, divulged their names. This leaves us free to speculate openly with regard to the true identities of the
these brave human explorers. To that purpose, I would like to offer my own personal insights into who I think may be behind the elusive numbers.
Part One: The Serpo Team Commander
Listed as the team commander is #102. Considering the importance of Earth's first interplanetary exchange with an alien civilization, it stands to
reason that whoever was chosen as the team commander would need to have been a true representative of human leadership potential. Who would have been
chosen for such a position? Because we are free to speculate on the matter, it seems reasonable to assume that the person chosen to be team commander
could, quite possibly, have been the single most powerful leader on Earth: the President of the United States of America.
Consider this: If John Fitzgerald Kennedy had decided to command the exchange team, he would have no doubt been required to undergo months - possibly
years - of intense training and physical preparation. To do so, he would have to relinquish command of the executive office and train with the other
Serpo team members in relative anonymity. The only practical way to do this would be to fake his own death in order to ensure complete secrecy. It
seems plausible that, if his assassination was hoaxed in November of 1963, this would have left him plenty of time to complete the training by the
exchange date of 1965.
Having established the identity of the team commander, it now becomes possible to address the issue of the supposed "female" personnel. Since we
have not been told their names, I will suggest the obvious; that the Hollywood actress (and personal confidant of JFK) known then as Marilyn Monroe
was among the original 12. It is highly probable that, as team leader, #102(JFK) would have had some say insofar as who was chosen for the mission.
Again, I have no direct proof of this, but I find this idea highly probable - especially when one considers the rather murky details surrounding the
mystery of Monroe's demise. Having supposedly perished in 1962, the faking of her untimely death would have put her in roughly the same time period
as JFK's demise, and well within the time constraints required for mission training. As for her placement on the list, Anonymous has not revealed
this to us yet, so we are left to guess which number was assigned to her. I will now suggest that she should be regarded as #203, the Assistant Team
Commander. If only we had a picture of her in her flight uniform!
Therefore, I believe team member #102 was JFK, and #203 was Monroe. At this time, I have no proof or indisputable evidence to prove this. But if my
theory is correct, the correct identification of the Serpo team members will - eventually - lead us to that proof. I will continue:
Part Two: The British Connection
Another interesting possibility concerns the so-called "linguists" who were part of the Serpo team. It is believed that the Ebens form of
communication consisted largely of tonal rythm sounds. What kind of linguist would be most suited to interpret such a language? I ask you to consider
the possibility that one of the chosen linguists may have in fact been musicians. And not just any musicians; Earth would want to send only those who
could be regarded as the finest representatives of our musical culture at that time in history.
To this end, I have found a uniquely illuminating coincidence. Within only a few years of the same time period that the Serpo team supposedly left
Earth, there was a particularly bizzare rumor going around the country concerning a member of the British Rock band "The Beatles". According to the
rumor, Paul McCartney had been killed in an auto accident, and had secretly been replaced by a look-alike. Furthermore, the rumor stated that the body
double who replaced him was a talented musician named William Shears Campbell. These rumors persist to this day, and some claim that tantalizing bits
of evidence regarding his death surfaced in "coded messages" which were included on the album covers and song lyrics released by the Beatles during
that era. One such example of an encoded message concerns the cover of the Beatles 1969 album release titled "Abbey Road", which can be seen here
Abbey Road Cover
. On the cover, one can clearly see the
four band members crossing a street. One member in particular; Paul McCartney, is missing a shoe. Beatles fans have speculated that this secretly
meant Mcartney was actually dead, and therefore did not need that shoe. But what if Paul didn't die? What it the meaning behind the picture was
intended to relay the message that McCartney was in fact very much alive, and on another planet? As for me, I find the relative time correlation
between the McCartney death rumors and the supposed alien exchange date of 1965 to be more than just an astonishing coincidence.
One should now consider the possibility that either team member 420 or 475 was Paul McCartney. If we are to further build on this theory, it should be
noted that the Beatles manager Brian Epstein was also believed to have been replaced by a double, although there is much less evidence to support this
hypothesis. For the time being, it serves our purpose to add his name to the list, so I will place Brian Epstein as #475. This placement now
positively identifies Beatle Paul McCartney as team member #420.
Part Three: The Horrifying Collaboration
Of course, the possibility that JFK, Marilyn Monroe, and Paul Mcartney may have been among the original Serpo team members evokes even more
tantalizing questions. Did any of them return? Unfortunately, the deeper we delve into this mystery, the stranger it gets. Anonymous has stated
unequivocally that at least eight team members returned to earth in 1978.
Personally, I doubt that either JFK or Marilyn Monroe returned to Earth. McCartney, however, appears to have come back with seven other team members
to reclaim his former life as a musician. It's a well-known fact that by 1980 his band Wings had broken up and, in that year, he was arrested in
Japan for marijuana possession. At least, that's the official story. Could the arrest have actually been the result of Japanese authorities
discovering the true nature of his identity? If they had discovered McCartney's double, I'm sure that the news would have made it around the world
in a matter of hours. It's possible, however, that they had uncovered a far more disturbing reality. Anonymous revealed in the diary transcript that
team member 308 had perished on the way to Serpo, and his body had been replaced with a clone. We have absolutely no proof whatsoever that this did
not happen to more than one team member. This cloning procedure may, in fact, have been done to all eight of the returning members. If that was the
case, then the authorities in Japan would have been subjected to intense political pressure by the United Nations not to divulge their discovery. It
seems as if the Paul McCartney clone is alive and well, and still successfully selling records. I don't know what the end purpose of this charade is,
but I feel that great concern is warranted.
To date, none of McCartney's fellow Beatles have gone on public record with regard to the McCartney hybrid-clone. Having worked closely with
McCartney, both George Harrison and Ringo Starr would have instantly known if McCartney had been replaced by something less-than-human. This leaves
only one possibility: that George Harrison and Ringo Starr are complicit in this cover-up. As evidence of this conspiracy, I point to the fact that
one of the founding members of the Traveling Wilbury's - Roy Orbison - died shortly after forming the band with Harrison. Obviously, Orbison was
alarmed by the knowledge that Harrison was engaging in underhanded, extraterrestrial subversion - and, as a concerned citizen, wanted to alert the
public to this potential threat. With Orbison out the picture, Harrison could continue to perform with the rest of the Wilburys, as seen here:

After all, they knew nothing about McCartney's secret, and the
Serpo mystery would remain hidden forever...
...at least that's what Harrison believed.
Watching a music video on MTV last December, I suddenly realized that at least one other member of the Travelling Wilburys may have known that
Harrison was involved in the cover-up. It is this person whom I believe is the key to unraveling the mystery behind the Serpo conspiracy: the pop
music vocalist known as Tom Petty. I can't explain it adequately in words; all I can say is that while watching his video for "Free-fallin' ", I
was struck by the sudden realization that Tom Petty must have known about the conspiracy all along. His video is loaded with cryptic messages that are
about Project Serpo. Watch it yourself - you'll see what I mean.
Here is a link to a picture of Tom Petty:

Could the elusive "Anonymous" be none other than Mr. Petty, himself?
Last month I began a meticulous search for any sign that Mr. Petty had attempted to communicate his inside knowledge to the public. My research
consisted of playing each one of his vinyl LP's backwards in an exhaustive search for hidden lyrics which may have been placed on them through a
technique known in the music industry as "backmasking". Though I played each record backwards many times over, after two weeks I decided this was a
useless endeavor. My failure to identify Mr. Petty as the Serpo whistleblower left me perplexed and, eventually, I came to accept a hard and
horrifying reality. With no alternative explanation, I must now concede that Tom Petty was collaborating with Harrison and Starr all along.
Part Four: The Darkness
After leaving my apartment to go to the corner store the other day, I was considering the possibility that I alone know the horrible truth behind Tom
Petty. Suddenly, I found myself unable to move as I felt I felt a shiver of cold terror begin to creep up my spine. Overcome with an ominous sensation
of being watched, I quickly ran back to my apartment, grabbed the telephone, and alerted the authorities to the scope of the conspiracy involving JFK,
Marilyn Monroe, the Ebens, and Tom Petty. To my utter shock and disbelief, they refused to take any action on the matter. Not to be deterred, I took
action on my own: going door to door in my neighborhood I personally warned everyone to stay on the look out for Tom Petty, and then printed up my own
flyers with his picture on them; posting them on every tree, telephone pole, and fire hydrant.
Now, for my own safety, I have decided to remain indoors as long as it takes to get this story out. But I am careful to keep my doors locked at all
times, and I dare not turn on a single light, as I am determined not to give away my presence. Only the dim, white light of the computer screen
illuminates my terrified existence, and I tremble at the slightest noise from the outside world. The sound of a cat pawing it's way to my door, or a
pinecone falling from a tree, or even a bug hitting the window fills my mind with a vision that evokes sheer terror: the nightmarish image of Tom
Petty's long, bony, white fingers slowly reaching out from the darkness...
Pray for me.
