What you are about to read is the information I have been able to assemble after interviews with an unidentified woman at an assisted living facility in Charleston. I was contacted by a Rheumatologist who thought I would be interested in meeting a Jane Doe recently admitted. Upon examination she was found to be in perfect health for a woman of sixty, but she claimed to be three hundred years old!
As I approached her in the recreation room, I introduced myself as a Psychologist who had been asked to speak with her. She simply stated that she was born on a tropical island three hundred years ago and that she was the daughter of Virginia Dare.
This woman, that I now refer to as Jane Doe-Dare, went on to explain that she had managed to escape from a community where everyone was incredibly old and in perfect health. She maintained that the reason for these conditions was because this organization has controlled the secret of eternal life for two thousand years. This secrecy is strictly enforced, and anyone leaving the Community has their mind erased so they can not reveal the secret.
Initially, I was not impressed as the person relating the tale was a patient diagnosed with dementia. Add to that, the fact that a videotape of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was still in the recreation room on a table next to the VCR, I felt that her memories were most likely generated by the movie.
