This may be a little too eccentric in today's canons. However, there may be credible points if we think “outside the box”. The UFO phenomenon has gained a different strength in recent years. Some sightings have already been unmasked, after all they were military tests, or meteorites, others, the most intriguing, are leaving the discussion alive, even in serious organizations, such as the United States Air Force.
An interesting book has now emerged, recently published by Michael Masters, professor of anthropology at Montana Technological University. This leaves and sustains a very peculiar question: could UFOs be piloted by human beings from a distant future?
The theme will never reach consensus and never stray along the edge of logic. However, there is still much to explain and many questions without any answer in this world of scientific logic.
This topic has grabbed the attention of thousands of people around the world. There were several sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). It is a theme to hold the mind. With the evolution of technology, with the evolution of societies, it was noticed with many sightings, mysterious hijackings attributed to the “flying saucers” … after all they had other explanations. There is, however, more to debate!
On the planet we know, almost everything has an explanation based on science. From almost everything, however, there is a fringe of facts that are permanently discussed as something “off the Earth”. In this sense, Science itself, always pragmatic and incredulous, began to leave the door open for the existence of other intelligent civilizations.
In fact, the fact that we have already discovered thousands of planets around other stars, some with the basic ingredients of life, even in the most remote corners of the Universe, has led scientists to seriously consider the possibility that, after all, we may not be so alone in the Universe.
Millions of worlds are spread across the Universe … and the Extraterrestrials?
Today we know new planets, their realities, which brought us a much more comprehensive view of extraterrestrial life. However, this open-mindedness does not facilitate the adoption of the idea that we are regularly visited by aliens. It becomes selfish and even absurd to think that in these millions of worlds, only the Earth has life. But from there until this life from another planet is with us, it is something else.
Thus, we can refer our doubt to an answer in the form of a question: if, it seems, life is so likely to have taken root on other planets, and even if some of them have evolved into intelligence, where are they all? Why can't we see anyone?
Well, that was the syllogism of the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi in the early 1950s. In short, if extraterrestrials exist and are in the Universe, how come we never saw them?
Since then, many have contributed with all kinds of solutions to the so-called “Fermi paradox”. In this paradox it is referred that the intelligences appeared in the oceanic worlds under thick layers of ice (as is the case of Enceladus or Europe in our Solar System) and without access to the stars.
Furthermore, it is also mentioned that these species will be very advanced and that they avoid contact so as not to “contaminate” our development.
Will humans be flying UFOs?
In line with more evolved theory, a book was launched by Michael Masters, professor at UMT, which suggests a new and interesting possibility:
Could UFOs be flown by humans from a distant future?
Could those strange creatures with whom many claim to have met, almost always in humanoid forms, really be our distant descendants, returning from the future to study their own evolutionary past?
No, the idea is not new. However, the professor of anthropology, in his book, studies this possibility with “another look” and offers an interesting perspective that invites reflection. For example, Masters is convinced that, given the rapid pace of advances in science and technology, it would be plausible to think that the humans of the future could develop the machines needed to travel through time. O objective of the book, says its author, is not to convince anyone, but stimulate a new discussion between believers and skeptics.
According to their statements to the website “Space.com“, The author guarantees that he decided to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to try to understand the oddities of this phenomenon.
Our job as scientists is to ask big questions and try to find answers to unknown questions. Something is happening here, and we should talk about it. And we must be at the forefront when it comes to finding out what it is.
He stressed Michael Masters.
So, are the “extraterrestrial visitors” ourselves?
In the words of the investigator, the possibility that we are such visitors ourselves is by far the most plausible.
We know we're here. That humans exist. We know that we have had a long evolutionary history on this planet. And we know that our technology will be more advanced in the future. I think the simplest explanation is that it is us. I'm just trying to offer what is probably the most parsimonious explanation.
The professor makes it clear that the book aims to unite well-known aspects of our own evolutionary history. However, it adds other facts not yet proven or unknown, such as UFOs and aliens.
Aliens visiting us are tourists and scientists from the future
As an anthropologist, Masters worked at numerous archaeological sites in Africa, Europe and the United States. He says that if he had the possibility to travel to the past to better understand our ancestors, he would do so without hesitation.
In addition, the alleged kidnapping reports are mainly of a scientific nature. They could be future anthropologists, historians or linguists, who travel to the past to obtain information in a way that today, and without the necessary technology, we cannot access.
The tourism part is a factor that is always linked to the return on investment. In fact, we see that currently space tourism projects are already underway as a complement to make the investment in space travel structures more profitable.
But time travel is not possible!
Obviously, Masters' approach to his investigation is that of “an evolving project”. In fact, there are still important pieces in the puzzle. For example, we still do not understand exactly what time is and we still cannot manage to combine general relativity, which explains the world at the macroscopic level, with quantum mechanics, which occurs in the domain of subatomic particles.
Many researchers, in fact, believe that time travel will never be possible. Stepen Hawking himself dedicated one of his lapidary phrases to the question:
The best proof that time travel is impossible is that we are not invaded by a legion of tourists from the future.
But what if we are really invaded by these tourists?
The author wants to present what will be the best model for the debate. However, this theme, represented in a book, has already raised many opinions against and many in favor. For now, the intended result, there is debate.
