A Theory of Molecular Space Travel

A Theory of Molecular Space Travel

how is possible for Flying Saucers to visit Earth given the already mentioned impossible distances in space? Einstein’s theory of relativity, suggesting mass and energy cause spacetime to curve, makes inter-dimensional travel possible. This possibility, however, continues to focus on macrocosmic reality, meaning we must have life-size spaceships and life-size wormholes to travel through. I would like to propose a theory of space travel based on the microcosmic world of molecules, photons, and DNA—a theory that, given what quantum science tells us about the Universe, makes space travel seem much more plausible, at least as far as I’m concerned. Such a theory, namely, that extraterrestrial beings travel to our world by manipulating quantum particles, including the molecules in our own bodies, makes Jung and others correct in assuming UFOs come from somewhere within us and are projections outward. I would not assume, however, that this means they are merely psychological projections, but may actually be travelers who come from other dimensions or regions of space.

Wonderful Theory of Molecular Space Travel

 Although I have no problem believing “we are not alone in the Universe,” I have,until recently, thought it highly unlikely that our planet has ever been visited by beingsfrom outer space. This is so, I speculated, because to travel any meaningful distancethrough space, even at the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second, would take animpossible amount of time. It is true that at the speed of light the Moon is only 1.5seconds from Earth, and the Sun, 93 million miles from Earth, is merely 8 minutes awayat light-speed. And, at the speed of light, it would take only 4 hours to reach Neptune,one of the most distant planets in our solar system; about half the time it takes to drivefrom San Francisco to Los Angeles. Traveling an entire year at the speed of light would bring us to the Oort Cloud, an asteroid belt surrounding our entire planetary system, atthe outer-edge of our Sun’s gravitational influence, home to a trillion or more comets,including Hale-Bopp and Halley’s Comet. But even then, after an entire year traveling atlight speed, we haven’t yet even left our own solar system. Needless to say, we can’t, as of yet, travel at light-speed, and the idea of engineering a vehicle to withstand the destructive centrifugal forces associated withmoving at such speed seems impossible. At current spacecraft speed, 40,000 mile per hour, it would take 3 years to travel to Saturn, about 746 million miles from Earth, andabout 70,000 years to Alpha Century, one of our Galaxy’s closest stars. Traveling merelyat freeway speed, 75 miles per hour, it would take 1200 years to get to Saturn, and 38million to Alpha Centauri. And even if we could somehow find a way to safely travel atlight speed, it would take 2.2 million years to travel to the Andromeda galaxy, the closestlarge spiral galaxy to our own. So even if we had a ship that could make it to Andromedaat the speed of light, our astronauts would die of old age long before the journey even begins. There are, of course, trillions of galaxies, trillions of light years away, makingmeaningful space travel impossible, unless, of course, there is a species out there that canwithstand light-speed, is immortal and also extremely patient! Nevertheless, I am not in denial of the evidence suggesting the possibility that our  planet has been visited by alien beings, particularly the numerous reports of flyingsaucers and alien abductions. Although some of these reports are undoubtedly hoaxes,the sheer number of them, many by seemingly ordinary and trustworthy people, indicatethere must be something real behind this phenomenon. Although these reports areseldom, if ever, mentioned by the mainstream media, they are relatively frequent. Themost recent UFO report, according to the National UFO Reporting Center happened lessthan a month ago on October 1
st
, seen by witnesses in Wyoming, Colorado, and NewMexico. One of them was a commercial pilot with 40 years experience, who, along withhis First Officer, reported witnessing a cluster of four UFO’s from their cockpit. Thecenter, which tries to omit obvious hoaxes, received a total of 1,578 worldwide UFOreports during the first seven months of this year alone. Similarly, in a 2002 pollconducted by RoperASW, a global marketing research firm, one in seven Americans say

2they or someone they know has had an experience involving a UFO. And on May 9,2001, a group calling themselves the “Disclosure Project” stood before the National PressClub in Washington, DC while more than twenty of their 400 military, intelligence,government, corporate and scientific witnesses gave first hand testimony of encounterswith UFOs, extraterrestrial beings, and alien technologies, each promising to testify under oath before Congress that what they’ve seen is the truth. It is, as Edward J. Ruppelt, oncein charge of UFO investigation for the Air Force, said as far back as 1956, “something isseen, but one doesn’t know what.”

 Assuming that at least some of these reports come from honest well-meaning people, we must conclude there is some truth to them. The question is, what is the natureof that truth? Are they really seeing spaceships and being abducted by aliens, or are theygenuinely experiencing a common, sometimes collective, hallucination? The great psychologist, Carl Jung, who studied UFO reports with great fervor and interests, oncewrote to a friend, “I’m puzzled to death about these phenomena, because I haven’t beenable yet to make out with sufficient certainty whether the whole thing is a rumour withconcomitant singular and mass hallucination, or a downright fact.”

Although he never satisfactorily solved his puzzle, his writing suggests he saw flying saucers as a modernmyth offering hope for a world distressed by the threat of atomic war and populationexplosion—problems threatening us even more today! “Congestion creates fear,” he said,“which looks for help from extra-terrestrial sources since it cannot be found on earth.”

 Hence, as in days of old, we look to the heavens for “signs and wonders” that might saveus. Just this Summer I heard a reputable theologian, to my surprise, say that those hereferred to as the “star people” are not happy with how things have been going here onEarth, and they’re planning to intervene before the year is out. Although I have greatdoubts about this, especially as November fast approaches, it expresses a hope that amore intelligent and benevolent being will swoop in to rescue us from our own madness.Despite his psychoanalysis of the phenomenon, however, Jung never did discountthe reality of UFOs. “The material that has become known to me during the past tenyears,” he wrote in 1958, “lends support to both hypotheses.”

In other words, peoplemay actually encounter UFOs when they are most psychologically in need of them. Jungcalled such an event a “synchronicity,” referring to an acausal, meaningful coincidence.This is partly why he chose to use the word “vision” rather than “hallucination,”explaining, “the latter bears the stamp of a pathological concept, whereas a vision is a phenomenon that is by no means peculiar to pathological states.”

In other words, seeinga UFO doesn’t mean you’re crazy!

3Others suggest that what are taken as UFO sightings and alien abductions arereally the result of sleep paralysis, a condition brought about when the chemical thatnormally prevents us from physically acting out our dreams while we’re sleeping lingersa while as we begin to awaken, causing a state of consciousness in which we’re unable tomove our bodies. It’s common, when this happens, for individuals to panic and gasp for  breath, but because they can’t move they imagine they’re suffocating, even though, inreality, breathing is an autonomic response. While in such a twilight state, someindividuals are also prone to hallucinations or vision in which they see figures pressingdown on their chests. This seems to be the subject of Henry Fuseli’s 1781 painting,
The Nightmare
, in which a demonic figure sits atop a sleeping woman’s stomach and chest.There are similar depictions in other art, including that of old witches holding peopledown while they sleep. This is understandable given that the word “nightmare,” means
dark mother 
, the likely reason Sleep Paralysis has traditionally been called “Night HagSyndrome.” The question raised by some nowadays suggests the modern psyche hastraded in visions of demons and witches for aliens instead. Thus, the thought is, somesuffering from episodes of Sleep Paralysis imagine that they are in an alien setting being probed and prodded by strange beings.Still others, preferring a more natural explanation to explain these strange phenomenon, have sighted
Temporal Lobe Disturbance
, which has been know to cause people to hallucinate sounds, visions, smells, and missing time;
memory distortion
inwhich people make up erroneous memories to fill in the gaps caused by forgotten data;and, last, but not least, some of these experiences are attributed to genuine
mental illness
. None of these explanations, however, seem to explain the extraordinary detail given bythose who encounter UFOs, nor, and more importantly, do they satisfactorily explainmass hallucinations. Even if we could dismiss a UFO sighting by one group of people atone location as the group’s unconscious need to be rescued from distressing times, howdo we explain numerous witness seeing the same phenomenon at the same time fromseveral different States? It seems, to me, that the simplest answer here is the mostreasonable—they really did see something!Assuming this is the case, how is possible for Flying Saucers to visit Earth giventhe already mentioned impossible distances in space? I would like to suggest that it ismost likely impossible to travel great distances through space, for ours or any other species. If this were so, then the only way to move galactic distances in a reasonableamount of time would be some sort of inter-dimensional travel. This is to say that rather than passing from point A, through points B and C, to get to point D, one travels instantlyfrom point A to point D, without traveling through linear spacetime. This might beaccomplished, some have suggested, by traveling through a structure capable of bendingtime and space, perhaps through a black hole, so that points A and D loop around next toeach other like two ends of a long string. Einstein’s theory of relativity, suggesting massand energy cause spacetime to curve, makes this theoretically possible.This possibility, however, continues to focus on macrocosmic reality, meaning wemust have life-size spaceships and life-size wormholes to travel through. I would like to propose a theory of space travel based on the microcosmic world of molecules, photons,
