The Pan-like composers.

    Narcology specialists cannot help noticing a strange and insistent coincidence: among the numberless amount of personages ever described as seen in the state of abstinent syndrome - be it manuscripts of antique or medieval medics and poets, or modern Narcology clinic reference books - the palm is invariably borne by hairy humanlike creatures with hoofs and a tail, and sometimes also with small horns. Their appearance does not notably change with ages, neither does it significantly diverge from that of the famous antique Pan. The well-known Vrubel's painting of the same name can serve a perfect portrayal for all these 'hallucinatory products'.
    A great amount of pictures made by those suffering from different mental disorders, intended to describe their hallucinatory experience, bear strange resemblance of the same history-old image. A question arises: why should dipsomaniacs of so different age, social status, educational level and ideological outlook all hallucinate in one and the same way?
    It seems very likely that due to the certain processes taking place in the cerebral cortex of dipsomaniac and some other mental patients, their mind lose its natural protection and opens up to visual, auditory, and other images translated telepathically from the creatures of parallel world. There must be some objective reality hidden beyond all these pathologic phenomena.
    The creatures of parallel world have appeared in the same form not only before alcoholics. Thus the Neolithic rock carvings found in the region of Priolhonie on the Baikal west coast (the so-called 'Sagan-Zaba' monument) bear multitude of humanlike horned figures along the white marble vertical slopes over the glassy lake surface.
    The same CPW appearance was witnessed on July 6, 1989, by a group of Byelorussian children from the summer scout camp "Festivalniy" in the vicinities of the Rakov town in the Volozhinsky district (Byelorussia). It is described by the local newspaper 'Zviazda' in the article 'We Saw a Wonder' by the correspondent Dmitry Novikov who specially visited the place and talked with the children.
    "On July 6, as usual, the scout group's leader Natalia Alexeevna Malashkina took her young charges for a walk before lunch. On a sunny little lawn the children ran and played. One of them, a fourth-year Minsk schoolboy Ruslan Lutskin, went a bit further into the forest to collect bilberries. Suddenly he rushed back deadly pale and terribly frightened. He insisted he had seen a monster. Several curious boys and girls immediately ran in the direction he had just come from. In a few minutes they returned shouting excitedly, with the same unfeigned horror in their eyes. They also were talking of some dreadful monster, asked to take them back to the camp and said they would never go to that place again. <...> Those witnessing - the fourth-form pupils Vitalik Morev, Valia Borozna, Ira Straholis, Pavel Bodyan and others - are sure they had met 'a humanoid' for a black 'plate' suddenly appeared over the monster's head".
    In the newspaper editorial office, where Ruslan was invited together with his mother, the boy told the following story:
    "I was eating bilberries when I heard some strange knock behind me. I thought it were other children and said: 'Kids, stop nagging'. Then it became to snarl, like maybe a bear but with a strange gurgle. I turned round and saw that horrible thing squatting in front of me. It leaned forward so that its face was in half of a meter from mine, staring at me. For some minutes I was staring back as if paralysed. I was not feeling well at first, then grasp the situation and took to flight. I shouted twice or thrice, and then tried to call people but could not. I thought my heart would jump out of me..."
    The boy described the monster as follows:
    "It was nearly as tall as the ceiling here (about three meter). Thick greyish-brown hair covered him from top to toe. The head is huge, ugly, but very much like that of a man. With no neck. There was no nose either, or maybe I didn't notice. And no ears. The eyes - very small".
    Neither dipsomania nor mental disorders had been registered in the schoolchildren by the moment of the strange occurrence.
