I am more interested in the 'visitor' to John who controlled thoughts, seemed 'familiar' to Princess, could go into minds, and could disappear and speed away at will. Courtney seemed to think this was an 'alien'. I tend to think it was a 'spirit guide' type advance spiritual being' who was giving John whatever information that was important for him to write.
Based on my work 'spirit guides' help us remember what we need to know, write, produce, invent, discover, etc.. For example, help scientists that will bring froth a new invention, help artists, etc. bring forth any works of that were planned to come forth, etc. etc. Whether, these people believe in 'spirit guides' or not ---- if something was 'planned' to come to earth these guides may need to 'nudge' people to remember/do things. I doubt the 'religious view' of a war in heaven among spirits, but agree with an actual one ------ maybe Courtney was right on why that information was important to be recorded. It may have also been recorded so it could inaccurately be used by 'religions' to describe a 'war of spiritual beings' which never occurred to bind more people to false religions. There is a purpose for many things (good and what some consider bad) to give us experiences for our learning.
