UFOs, from a parallel Universe?
Theoretical physicists have suggested that parallel universes exist alongside our Universe.
The theories have sobriquets such as The Multiverse (a Michio Kaku favorite) or the many-worlds interpretation of Quantum Physics. (See Wikipedia for more.)
The hypotheses intrigue, and are as certain as all the other hypotheses extant in the world of physics; that is, parallel universes have as much validity as string theory or the so-called Big Bang theory – not much.
But for the sake of argument, let’s examine the possibility of a parallel universe to ours, or many of them, as they pertain to UFOs and flying saucers.
We think some flying saucer/UFO sightings may be insertions from universes existing in tandem with ours, intersecting on occasion by mistake or design.
We have to separate confabulations by UFO hoaxers (which are more numerous than ufologists allow) and misinterpretation of military prototype aircraft – the Arnold sighting for instance – along with other prosaic-possible episodes, such as the Mantell tragedy -- from the UFO data and accounts.
This leaves a residue of sightings that might conform to theoretical intrusions by artifacts from universes snuggling up to ours.
The WW II “foo fighters” are possible inter-dimensional intrusions, as were the Washington D.C. appearances in 1952.
The little-beings outside UFOs that showed up in Europe and South America in the 1950s seem more phenomenological than extraterrestrial, but “invasions” from a universe not too dissimilar to ours could account for those sightings.
And what about the abduction phenomenon? Of all the “explanations” for those episodes, the parallel universe explanation makes the most sense. And why?
The movement between our dimension of space (and time) and another universes space (and time) would account for the lack of tangibility in abduction scenarios.
Kaku, for instance, talks about the possible insubstantial (maybe unstable) nature of atoms (and reality) if multiverses or parallel realities were to intersect.
Experiencers (abductees) report a weird kind of intangibility to their “kidnappings.”
And the world(s) they enter are somewhat like ours, but generally of a strange kind, yet not so strange as to suggest existences whose physics are completely foreign to ours.
The evanescent quality of abductions seems to confirm the many-worlds concepts of quantum physics, with all the attributes of quantum reality (if reality is the right word).
Today, when UFOs are more amorphous than structured, the possibility that they are artifacts, of some kind, from another dimension or universe, and maybe not an intelligent insertion but a random, accidental intrusion, with no meaning.
Once the convoluted UFO/flying saucer incidents are subtracted from the UFO oeuvre – the Roswell, Hill, Socorro incidents for example – the parallel universe invasions should be given some research time: the RB47 incident, the O’Hare sighting, and maybe the Stephenville, Texas sightings, among others.
