UFO Conjecture(s)

Extraterrestrials and Flying Saucers [UFOs] have a common denominator?

In George Pal’s 1953 Sci-Fi film, War of the Worlds, Dr. Clayton Forrester [Gene Barry] suggested, via script writer Barre Lyndon, that the Martians created their technology based upon how they looked – their physiognomy.

Here’s clip to remind you how the Martians and their machines appeared in the film: 

This offers the speculation that if UFOs are ET craft, they may represent something from their world that flies, just as Earthlings developed aircraft based, in part, on birds in flight and rocket-ships based upon arrows flying through the air.

The circular objects known as flying saucers, morphed into UFOs, may have, conjecturally, been created by extraterrestrials who have, in their world, something that is circular and flies.

That alien beings debarking from flying disks have human-like characteristics belies, perhaps, the idea that those beings come from a planet elsewhere.

This opens the door to time-travelers or inter-dimensional beings.

Otherwise the beings seen outside a flying disk/saucer would have some round or circular characteristics, if War of the Worlds’ scriptwriter Lyndon was prescient, which I think he was.

  • Form and function, science fiction and myth all wrapped up in imagination...leads to truth being stranger than fiction or perhaps there’s some truth in every fiction and vice versa.
    I found a interesting reference some time ago to nuts and bolts flying discs ( form following function ) via the fluid dynamics research undertaken by Viktor and Walter Schauberger in regard to their contention that aeronautical and marine engineers had incorrectly designed the propeller. You might already be familiar with this story. I don’t know.
    This was based their study of creating fluid and atmospheric vortices and in particular, Viktor’s work caught the attention of the Reich who forced him into investigating the application of this concept using this vortex principle channeling air into a spiraling vortex ( implosion engine ) creating more thrust under the moniker “Repulsine”
    This is the key source for the mythology of “Nazi Flying Disks.”
    The body of this device , the form, follows the function.

    As a result of this involuntary pressure during the war, he had a nervous breakdown, He resumed his work after the war.

    These turbine-like devices are circular and resemble a classic flying disk in detail and oddly resemble some of the descriptions provided by witnesses

    What’s interesting about this is the successful use of their patents in other applications which still fund what is now the well endowed PKS Institute by way of the Schauberger Family Trust.

    Tough on those of we skeptics but as we get our heads around the time and distances that otherwise seems so implausible, what else are we left with?

    But I like Rich's speculation on form. Aliens tend to be too much like humans. Their ships are more beautifully shaped than you would expect function to allow. The saucer type especially seems rather unstable for flight in our atmosphere.

    However, the saucer form might not be a copy of something from the alien homeworld; rather, it could be required by the propulsion system (I can imagine anti-gravity requiring the symmetry).

    But let me throw this wrench into our mentations:

    Where are the alien land rovers? Is there even one UFO report -- ever! -- of aliens driving an ATV out of their ships so they can scout around, pick up supplies, etc?

    Are we really to believe that aliens park their ships and walk everywhere? (Where UFO witnesses unconsciously influenced in this by Star Trek and earlier shows that were too cheap to build space buggies?)
