are they here?
section will deal with some of the ideas regarding how
the UFO's actually travel from their civilisation to our
planet. One of the main arguments against the reality of
the extra-terrestrial nature of UFO's is that sceptics
claim, and quite rightly, that the distances involved are
just too vast to make space travel a viable option.
Basically this argument can be countered by two main
areas of discussion. Firstly, the alien technology is way
in advance of our current understanding of space and time
and as a result faster than light travel is indeed
possible. Secondly the aliens are closer to home than we
think, therefore negating the need for travelling vast
distances. I will now explain in a bit more detail these
two counter arguments and discuss the possible ideas
within each that might make these arguments valid.
As mentioned above, if the aliens have not discovered a
means of faster than light travel then we the UFO
researcher need to come up with some reasons why they
could still be visiting us.
There are 3 main ideas that I want to discuss here.
Within our Solar System
The first is that of the theory that the aliens visiting
us are in fact a lot closer to us than the next nearest
star. This would mean that either the aliens come from
within our solar system or that they exist in another
planetary system yet undetected by us. Both of these
explanations seem a little unlikely at first, however
there are some valid reasons for these thoughts.
Our scientists tell us that no life can exist on any of
the other planets within our solar system and the public
in general tend to believe as gospel what they say.
However, it should be remembered that recently organisms
have been found on meteorites which have crashed to Earth
from Mars. Scientists are slowly agreeing that life in
simple forms could exist within our solar system. Who is
to say that other more complex lifeforms could also exist
on other planets within our solar system.
It is interesting to remember the stories of the early
"contactees" such as George Adamski. Whilst I
believe that Adamski had some wild claims, it is still
interesting to note that he was told that all the planets
had advanced lifeforms on including the moon.
Another theory which has been used several times is that
the aliens are some form of "nomadic"
civilisation which has set up a base on one of the other
planets or is simply orbiting in a super structure like a
Another popular theory that has been put forward over the
years is that of the aliens being from some other
dimension. This theory has been the main thrust of the
famous UFO researcher Jacque Vallee. This would explain
the fact that in abduction cases the victims report that
the aliens seem to appear suddenly and then to disappear.
The victims also report that the aliens seem to be able
to walk through solid objects such as chairs, doors and
walls. I must admit that I am not one of this theories
followers, although the possibility should not be ruled
Always been here
Another fairly popular theory is that the "aliens"
have always been here on earth, living amongst us. Many
reports of underground bases have been made especially
recently in Puerto Rico. Also many sea based sightings
have stated that the UFO's disappeared underwater after
they had been spotted or chased by Jets. This would tend
to indicate that maybe there exists a whole world
undiscovered by Humans under the sea. One is reminded of
the old tales of the lost continent of Atlantis.
This theory certainly would explain many of the questions
regarding UFO's, and is also fairly plausible due to the
sheer size of the water mass on earth and the vast depths
involved. It has been stated that something like 100 new
creatures are discovered every year in the oceans of the
earth as technology increases the depths to which we can
send probes to the deep trenches.
Each of the above theories have their supporters and
sceptics. However with the vast number of different alien
races that have been visiting our planet it is probably a
combination of the above or as we shall see one of the
other theories explained below.
than light Travel
As stated earlier one of the arguments that scientists
and sceptics use is that they claim it is not possible to
go faster than the speed of light. As a result it would
not be viable for an advance civilisation to bother
visiting us. However as technology develops science is
now predicting that faster than light travel is now
There have been many ways that science fiction writers
have enabled faster than light travel into their stories.
These include Black Holes, Worm Holes, and Gravity Waves.
All these 20 years ago were complete fiction, but now all
of these are in fact theoretically possible. Black holes
have been found and scientists have speculated that
travel through them would in theory be possible without
being destroyed. Worm holes have been mathematically
proven and again they could be used as a mechanism for
travel. Gravity waves which have only recently been
identified are being investigated. (Gravity is still
according to most scientist the least understood of all
of the forces of Nature. Who knows what they will find in
20, 50 and 100 years time ?).
Again it is interesting to think back on the claims of
Bob Lazar. Now whether you believe his story or not his
explanation of how the UFO's travelled space is
intriguing. Without going into the full explanation of
the Lazar theory, I will briefly summarise. Basically
what Lazar said was that the UFO focused their gravity
wave generators on the point in space where they what to
travel. The gravity generators would pull/warp space
between them and the destination, the gravity generators
would then be turned off and the craft would "snap"
to the destination point. I.E The ship has not actually
travelled any distance. It will be interesting to see if
this turns out to be how UFOs travel their vast distances.
