Time can be manipulated, as Einstein postulated and which
these books (from my personal library) confirm:
Man and Time by J.B. Priestly [Dell/Laurel, NY, 1964]
Time Warps by John Gribben [Delacorte Press/Eleanor Friede,
The Nature of Space and Time by Stephen Hawking and Roger
Penrose [Princeton University Press, NJ, 1996]
A Briefer History of Time by Stephen Hawking with Leonard
Mlodinow [Bantam, NY, 2005]
It would seem, to me, that Earth’s scientists might, in the
future, be able to manipulate time, allowing trips forward and backward in the
stream of existence.
If so, that might account for the superimposition of UFOs in
the skies over the Earth for millennia.
Gribben, in his book [above] provides a chapter [3, Page 45
ff] wherein he recounts the paradoxes and possibilities of time travel, and
refers to Moorcock’s Behold the Man (one of my favorite Sci-Fi stories)
and mentions Ward Moore’s Bring the Jubilee [Page 55] and end the
chapter with a note about a “backwards universe running alongside our own.”
Priestley, in his book [above], recounts almost all – it was
written in the early 60s so there is more about time since then – the
philosophical and physical theories and conjectures, from early ruminations
(primitive and historical).
And Hawking with Mlodinow and Penrose accepts space-time as
conquerable for travel, positing, in the Penrose partnership, a “contentious”
discussion of decoherence within white and black holes but agreeing that QM
(quantum mechanics) and the R operation “might be a link to spacetime
structure.” And also noting that
because of entropy, “Would the time-reversed situation not violate the second
law of thermodynamics?” to which Hawking answers, “The system is moving
ergodically among all possible states, so there is no violation.” [Page 136]
So, one can see that the current laws of physics permits
Thus, one can speculate that Earth’s advanced, future
scientists will solve the time problem, and be able to go back-and-forth in the
historical sequence, at least to observe what has transpired before their
Does that mean future Earthians could or would alter events?
That’s a question to conjure with surely, but it doesn’t
seem that time-travelers from our future have done so, or are very callous in
their benign neglect of this civilization’s tragedies, many of which you can
(You notice that I do not offer the suggestion that UFOs
come from advanced extraterrestrials – because of my view that aliens from afar
would not be advancing upon Earth in the numbers that UFO reports indicate.
Aliens would not be that interested in this small, non-descript planet, no
matter how much some of you think Earth and we humans plus the species here are
special. In all the cosmos, and possible multiverses or other dimensions, there
surely has to be peoples, species, and artifacts much more interesting than
what this rock proffers.)
But if future members of Earth’s humanity retain the
curiosity that Earth's men and women have expressed over the years, with investigations
and expeditions, one can surmise that they would come back, now and then, to
see what preceded them, or even caused some of their problems and enhancements.
The abrupt disappearance of many UFOs obviates the ability
to move in and out of space-time.
The apparent scrutiny of various aspects of Earth’s
geographies and activities, plus environmental perusal makes sense for those
who would be impacted later by them, whereas a surveillance of those elements
of this planet would be irrelevant for those from an alien civilization or
planet, not affected bb the vicissitudes of this planet’s existence, which is
unique….I’ll give that to those who think Earth is special.
So, UFOs may come from time, our future (or other universes
or dimensions, but that for a different posting).
I’d appreciate your views.
