Sadie Marcus, wife of Wyatt Earp, had shared information with me about the deep politics of Tombstone. So it was only fair that I ought to share what I knew about her resurrection. Some people starting in late 2014 had been rising intact from their graves, brought about by a mysterious Resurrection Project. This, in turn, was believed to be an offshoot of the school of Russian Cosmism. (Background: I Meet Mrs. Earp, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, January 10, 2015.)
Was this the End Times? Many Christians believed that at the end, people would be physically rising from their graves. Some Russian Cosmists had interpreted this to mean it was up to us to bring back Jesus, instead of just passively waiting for the Second Coming. Bringing back the ancestors was the first step on the road to eventually bringing back a 2,000 year old “ancestor”: Jesus Christ.
But how could I explain this complicated subject to Mrs. Wyatt Earp, now returned to life and sitting across the table from me at the Genteel Tea Parlor in Tombstone, Arizona?
“I guess it starts with the legend of the White Cowl,” I began, as Sadie Marcus, Earp’s wife, listened. “In the mid-14th century, the Patriarch of Constantinople was Philotheos. He learned that in the Roman empire times, the Emperor Constantine had given Pope Sylvester I a sacred White Cowl. By the mid-14th century, this holy hooded relic was sent by Rome to Philotheos. An angel in the form of a radiant youth appeared to Philotheos and told him he must accept the White Cowl. Not only that, but the angel further told him, ‘Philotheos, you must immediately send on the White Cowl to Novgorod in Russia.'”
“After some delay,” I continued, while Sadie listened, “Philotheos did send the Cowl on to Novgorod, where it arrived safely. It was presented to the Archbishop Vasilii Kalika. The White Cowl remains in Russia to this very day.”
“The Roman empire, and its successor in Constantinople, were doomed. Russia was to be the ‘Third Rome’, preserver of the true Christianity. The sacred White Cowl was the symbol of this.” 
“How were Rome and Constantinople doomed?” Sadie inquired. “The Roman Catholic Church and the Greek Orthodox Church are still around, unless they suddenly disappeared after I died in 1944.”
“Yes, they are still present,” I responded. “But the true faith now resided in Russia. And that faith was perceived by followers of Nikolai Fyodorovich Fyodorov, the founding father of Russian Cosmism, to be meant as active, rather than passive. The medieval church in the West had failed in its primary mission by being distracted with an endless loop of theological questions, beginning with Thomas Aquinas.”
“Wait a minute,” interrupted Sadie. “What was the primary mission?”
“To bring back Jesus,” I replied. “The Creator had left His work half-finished. The job of humanity was to actively complete His work. This was to be accomplished through the Church. But the Church in Rome and the Church in Constantinople had failed. And so the torch, symbolized by the White Cowl, was passed to Russia. Disciples of Nikolai Fyodorovich believed we were intended by the Creator to be immortal. That was what Jesus was trying to tell us when he said, ‘Know ye not that ye are gods?’ That is in the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 34. And so part of the impetus for the disciples of Nikolai Fyodorovich became resurrection of the ancestors. Eventually Jesus would be resurrected and that would be the true Second Coming.”
“But why Tombstone, Arizona, in 1881?”, asked Sadie. “Why does it start here? That is where most of the resurrections are happening.”
“I’m guessing, but Nikolai Fyodorovich Fyodorov, for one thing, was in his prime around 1881. That would tie in the year. As for why Tombstone, it might have something to do with John McCain, the Arizona senator. He has sworn eternal vengeance against the Russians, due to his prolonged sufferings as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, which he blames on the Russians. The Russians might be retaliating against John McCain by selecting Tombstone, Arizona, as the guinea pig for their latest experiment.”
“What is ‘Vietnam’?” Mrs. Earp asked. “And where on earth is it?”
“You may have known it as Annam back in 1881,” I answered. “It is a country on the coast of the South China Sea.”
“Land sakes!” she exclaimed. “Do you mean to say we went to war with a country way over on the other side of the world!?”
“I’m afraid so. But let’s not get diverted here, since I don’t have a lot of time until high noon and meeting your husband Wyatt.”
“Yes, yes… Pardon me,” replied Sadie. “So the Russians believed the true faith meant they had to resurrect the dead until they brought back Jesus. What happened then? How far did they get?”
“You probably know, since it happened in 1917 and you didn’t die until 1944, that there was a revolution in Russia and the Communists took over the nation. The Communists didn’t like all this ‘bringing back Jesus’ stuff, so the Russian Cosmists, as the disciples of Nikolai Fyodorovich came to be called, were persecuted. What you probably don’t know, however, is that Josef Stalin, the Russian dictator, authorized Gleb Bokii, the chief cryptographer of the secret police, to investigate telepathy and the ancient science of Shambhala! (Shambhala is a kingdom hidden somewhere in Inner Asia, mentioned in various ancient texts.) When Stalin secretly approved an interplay of mysticism and politics, this caused the lines between mystical seekers, secret policemen, and spies to become blurred.  What this meant was that the ideas of Nikolai Fyodorovich were not totally eradicated during the Stalin times, but instead flourished underground.”
“Yes, I remember Josef Stalin,” Sadie interjected. “He was our enemy, but then he was our friend, up until I died in 1944. They used to call him ‘Uncle Joe.'”
“And he became our enemy again, after 1945. Then ‘Uncle Joe’ Stalin died, in 1953. Thereafter, slowly, the repression began to ease in Russia. Part of the ideas of the Russian Cosmists was to conquer outer space. Once all those people become resurrected, where do you put them? The answer was to colonize other planets.”
“Do you mean to say they intend to put me on Mars!?” cried Sadie. “I won’t let them do it! And Wyatt won’t stand for it!”
“Relax, relax, Mrs. Earp,” I interposed. “Nothing is definite at this point. The future is not fixed. There are several possible futures.”
“Well I can definitely tell you the future is fixed as far as my not going to Mars!”
“Yes, of course,” I said soothingly to Mrs. Earp. “And by knowing more about the Resurrection Project you can help ensure you remain on earth.”
This seemed to mollify Sadie and she said, “Good point, mister. Please tell me more about this Resurrection Project and how I got here.”
“Under the new Russian dictator, Nikita Khrushchev, a space race began. When their cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, completed an earth orbit in his spacecraft, on April 12, 1961, our own president, John F. Kennedy, became alarmed. ‘JFK’, as President Kennedy was called, announced on May 25, 1961, ‘I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth.’ But President Kennedy must have known that the ‘space race’ was about much more than outer space and involved ‘inner space’ as well. And the ‘inner space’ research involved Extra-Sensory Perception, telepathy, psycho-kinesis, and what would be considered extremely bizarre studies into, among other things, physical resurrection of the dead. But this part was all too weird for it to have been publicly proclaimed in America. And so it was hidden under the rubric of a ‘space race.'”
“I would say this is all ridiculous,” said Mrs. Earp, “except here I am myself, resurrected as of 2014.”
“But it may be the Russians played a dirty trick on President Kennedy. Russia was the land of the true faith! It possessed the White Cowl! It would have been unthinkable to the Russians that the decadent West could be the ones to finally resurrect Jesus and bring on the Second Coming. That honor belonged to Holy Russia! And so, some say, President Kennedy, leader of America’s ‘space race’, was killed by a Russian agent, Lee Harvey Oswald. I’m not positive about this though. A secret ‘Torbitt Document’ claims it was the U.S. space agency, NASA, which was behind the murder of President Kennedy.”
Mrs. Earp stared at me in wide-eyed astonishment.
“I know, I know,” I said, guessing her thoughts. “JFK seems to head the space agency but then that same space agency kills him? This is a rather deep subject and, sorry to say, I don’t have much time to explain further.”
“Mrs. Earp, you and other departed Tombstonians were resurrected in 2014. But earlier, in 2012, there had been reports of so-called ‘zombies.’ The Centers for Disease Control, known as the CDC, had strangely been running ‘zombie campaigns’, disguised later as being ‘just a joke.’ This CDC campaign was followed by widespread rumors of a possible ‘zombie apocalypse.’ The CDC then, through a spokesperson, stated it ‘does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead.’ But in these days, people do not automatically trust what official agencies tell them. And when a man in Miami attacked and ate the face of his victim, fear of possible zombies increased. A further ‘cannibalistic outbreak’ caused by other such puzzling incidents led to voodoo speculations. And the CDC next even provided a kit list on their website which gave readers information about everything they might need in case a zombie did come around! And guess who was especially interested in providing a serious report on this zombie outbreak subject? None other than the Russia Today news network!” 
“What is a zombie?” asked Mrs. Earp.
“A zombie, Mrs. Earp, is a resurrected body but without a soul. My guess is that the 2012 zombie incidents were a failed experiment by the Russian Cosmists.”
