Quantum Non-locality and UFOs

Copyright 2011, InterAmerica, Inc.

Discussions here indicate a loathing, by some, to accept UFOs (and flying saucers) as tangible objects; some interpretations centering on psychical manifestations, others centering on a mental interaction between percipient and the UFO (image).

There are other hypotheses, and one that should be addressed is the possibility that UFOs are intrusions of a quantum kind from other places in the Universe or psychic ether, if you want) that appear because of quantum non-locality.

To get a grasp of the thought and theorizing about quantum non-locality, click HERE for a 1997 paper about the topic by John G. Cramer of the Department of Physics, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.

One paragraph focuses on what Bruce Duensing and Jose Caravaca call “observer-created reality” (which I eschew). Here’s that paragraph:

The nonlocality of the quantum mechanics formalism is a source of some difficulty for the Copenhagen interpretation. It is accommodated in the CI through Heisenberg's "knowledge interpretation" which views the quantum mechanical state vector (y) as a mathematically-encoded description of the state of observer knowledge rather than as a description of the objective state of the system observed. For example, in 1960 Heisenberg wrote, "The act of recording, on the other hand, which leads to the reduction of the state, is not a physical, but rather, so to say, a mathematical process. With the sudden change of our knowledge also the mathematical presentation of our knowledge undergoes of course a sudden change." The knowledge interpretation's account of state vector collapse and nonlocality as changes in knowledge is internally consistent, but it is rather subjective, intellectually unappealing, and the source of much of the recent misuse of the Copenhagen interpretation (e.g., "observer-created reality").

I’m asserting that UFOs may become present when an object tangentially connected to our area of the Universe is made visible because an observer here is conveniently in situ to see the non-local inspired manifestation.

The UFO may even come about by a quantum intersect across dimensions or parallel universes, ours and theirs.

The quantum possibilities strike me as more reasonable (feasible) than the psychic hypotheses.

Psychical hypotheses are prosaic and mundane for me.

The human mind is given too much credence and power in the psychical response, and we all know, intuitively and intellectually, that psychism leaves a lot to be desired in repetitive and scientific experimentation.

UFO mavens want some control over the UFO phenomenon and applying a mind/UFO interaction allows that control to remain intact, somewhat.

This is akin to the Einstein approach about quantum mechanics, and John Cramer’s paper will take you through Einstein’s caveats and the quantum renunciation.

Einstein couldn’t accept the quantum quirkiness, and those in the UFO community can’t accept the UFO quirkiness, unless they keep control of the phenomenon by saying that it’s the human mind that is needed for a manifestation of UFOs.

That view is unimaginative and errant.

The human mind is hardly able to deal with practical reality, let alone incomprehensible reality (such as that in the quantum world).

(Schizophrenics and paranoiacs display examples of what happens when the human mind accesses realities outside the norm.)

While quantum non-locality is best represented by light photons, there are indications that quantum artifacts can exceed the atomic level and are manifested macrocosmically.

(I’ve provided some of that information online here earlier and at the RRRGroup blog.)

More importantly, perhaps, is the notion that UFOs may derive from intrusions, accidental or purposeful, across dimensions or between parallel universes, as string theory allows.

This would keep intact my preference for UFO tangibility, which is obvious and well-witnessed.

The psychic view of Jacques Vallee and his devotees is old-hat for me. It’s something like the hysteria of the Salem witch trials or the insanity of the Catholic Inquisitional thrusts.

More on this approach to the UFO phenomenon will be ferreted out from other sources and pertinent quantum theorizing, and will be presented here upcoming.

Meanwhile, you “UFOs as psychic phenomena” people can have at it.

The Plasma argument for UFOs


Paul R. Hill (pictured) has provided a scientific evaluation of the UFO phenomenon, one that Bruce Duensing will like as will others who see UFOs as nothing more than a strange physical phenomenon.

A Russian pilot or a UFO entity?


Jose Antonio Caravaca provides a strange, French UFO case from 1954 that supports, sort of, Bruce Duensing's view of the phenomenon.

The World-Wide UFO Wave of 1954


Esteemed UFO researcher Albert Rosales has compiled a raft of UFO sightings in 1954, most with little, strange entities.

This is his account of one:

Location. Petare Venezuela
Date: November 28 1954
Time: 0200A
Driving a truck, Gustavo Gonzalez and his helper Jose Ponce found the street blocked by a luminous sphere 8-10 ft in diameter, hovering 6 ft above the ground. They got out to investigate, and saw coming toward them a dwarfish being 3 ft tall, with claws & glowing eyes. Gonzalez grabbed the little man, who wore only a loincloth, & lifted him up, finding him surprisingly light, hard, & hairy. The entity gave him a push than knocked him 15 ft. Gonzalez then tried to stab him, but the knife glanced off. Ponce saw 2 others emerging from the bushes with soil in their hands. They jumped up into the sphere, and shone a blinding light at Gonzalez. His antagonist also jumped in, and the craft flew away. Gonzalez was left with a deep scratch in his side.

A 1967 UFO sighting in Canada


Here's the story in brief:

23 August 1967 04:00 Joyceville, Ontario, Canada...

4' white suit helmet. Driving home witness saw green light in field off road. Huge lens-shaped craft. two humanoids 4' tall white uniforms, helmets, repair activity.

The story, as compiled by Donald A. Johnson HERE...

1967, Joyceville, Ontario - While driving from his home in Toronto at four o'clock in the morning Stanley Moxon, age 20, saw a green light in a field ahead of him, not far from the road. He turned off his headlights and swung onto a side road to get closer. Turning his lights on again, he saw a huge greenish colored lens-shaped craft, and two somewhat bulky human-like entities about four feet tall, wearing white uniforms and helmets. They "seemed to be at work around the machine." When they were discovered, they quickly jumped into the craft, which took off silently at tremendous speed.

French reward offer for UFO "proof" --1954



This is the last paragraph, confirming a plethora of flying saucer incidents in France, in 1954:

A book recommendation for some....

This 256 page book by Albert Budden [Blandford, London, 1995] is a must-read for a few of our visitors here.

Nick Redfern may have a copy, but if not, he should get one, as should Bruce Duensing, Jose Caravaca, and maybe Kandinsky (because the many UFO events exampled in the book take place in The United Kingdom).

Auhtor Budden presents an extended hypothesis that UFOs are intertwined with electromagnetics, which he has dubbed electro-staging.

Mr. Budden writes that UFOs and encounters with UFO entities derive from changes in the Earth's magnetic field and present a psychic "reality" of high strangeness.

The author is no tyro, and his compilation of data and UFO accounts should be taken very seriously by those who think they are UFO researchers.

This isn't a review as such, just a suggested read.

So Kenneth Arnold was a sober, sensible man, right?

Where is this film?
