UFOs, are they real

Posted June 29, 2007 9:52 PM by photonicgirl

Do UFOs really exist and if so, what technology do they use? Microwave, RF, Scalar, Astrophysics, Gravitational Field Manipulation...or ... is it something else?

If you are in the know, please by all means, do tell.

some people believe it existing, others not.

most of them are nature phenomena. none see else.

but as a search, its interesting.

Re: UFOs, are they real

UFOs are often reported as making impossible maneuvers at incredible speeds - like a right-angle turn at mach 8, for example, without so much as one tap on the brakes. Reports routinely mention weird lights, strange electromagnetic effects on nearby objects and, of course, a means of propulsion that counters gravity or, at least, doesn't depend on ejecting something so crude as rocket fuel to get an equal and opposite reaction.

Having never seen a UFO; much less never having had a meaningful technical discussion with its occupants, I'm left to pure speculation, sadly. But offhand, I'd say these critters (or whatever they are) have not only discovered the Higgs boson, but have mastered its most fundamental applications. For instance, if you could eliminate inertia, think of how maneuverable your craft could be. If you could negate the effects of mass altogether (including inertia), it wouldn't take much to stop on a dime or accelerate to incredible speeds in the wink of an eye. Gravity would have little or no effect were there no mass to influence. The mere flap of a butterfly's wings could hold your craft aloft.

Higgs bosons have a lot to do with mass - and much more. We need to get busy.

You've never seen an object in the sky that you couldn't identify?

I've seen some birds of prey which I couldn't identify...do they count as UFOs?

I remember the first kingfishe I ever saw ...stunning...it took a few minutes before I worked out what that was!

Sorry ER,

Del had it right. His second post (#5) is technically an "errata" page. Pedantically, as you admitted, he probably should have uttered "erratum..." on his "errata" page, but then...

"Nitpicking: Should it be legal?"

"Nitpicking is the act of removing nits (the eggs of lice, generally head lice) from the host's hair".

You're not a host are you Yuval?

Can a cat with furry eyebrows even be a host?

Do you have "hair" or "fur" (fur/hair, is that nitpicking)?

Well, when he starts rattling off information they get too much data, hence the name. If he spoke only one idea or one point at a time, they would probably have called him "Datum".

That's just my ideum .

If, somehow, the effects of mass and inertia were negated, no force would be experienced. Force = mass × acceleration; F = ma. m = 0 --> F = 0. Conversely, a = F/m. As m --> 0, a --> ∞.

That's only because you're still thinking "inside the box" (see post #15).

The central point of my post is that, with the control of mass, F = ma as a critical factor becomes completely irrelevant.

Re: UFOs, are they real

Pedantically YES of course they exist by definition! Any flying object which is not identified is a UFO.

But I know what you mean...

I live near Stansted Airport and we get some very weird optical illusions as planes go in to land.

If you are driving towards the oncoming plane it seems to just be stationary, then as the flight path changes for landing (or you change diection yourself) it appears to move out of view very quickly.

In the evening the stream of planes going up looks like a slow motion Roman Candle going off...a steady stream of lights going up into the sky.

I'd love to believe in 'em but I don't...there are enough naturally occuring phenomema which we can't explain without having to invent more. (Ball lightning was a thread not long ago....this is a real phenomenon which we can't explain).

I'm sure most of us 'jobbing designers' would love to invent anti-gravity or time travel...the biggest buzz we are likely to get is inventing some minor part or a clever software routine or designing a well used product.

Must get back to building my Interrossiter.

Just do some simple math.

How close is the nearest planet outside our solar system?

What speed can you travel through space at?

How long does it take to get there and back?

I don't mean to be rude but could you stay in your box and let others explore the fantastic. It's discussions like these that bring humans a little bit closer to breakthroughs in science and technology. (bit of an exaggeration)

The are Aliens. That's the point.

Who said they would travel "through" space? Why not warp the Space/time continuum, fold space or use some other unknown way, that we just haven't figured out yet. Or are you saying that we have discovered everything to be known.

Mmmmm.. Heard that before. Wasn't it around the 1800's that someone quoted that.

People once believed that you would die from lack of air if you rode in a train.

Think Wide, Think New, Think Big.

Don't let ANYBODY tell you what's possible. YOU could be the one to stumble upon a commercial application and practical way to utilise "low energy nuclear reactions" (cold fusion) or even if your really lucky find out where have all my socks gone.

Hi geomech,

"Who said they would travel "through" space?"

I didn't. We (us aliens) got tired of the accusations and just decided we were "through" with space. Not to say we won't continue to utilize it as we need to though.

"People once believed that you would die from lack of air if you rode in a train."

Apparenty you didn't ride in the last train that I did. If you had smelled the air... (whew!)

Cold fusion. Now that's a concept you humans should spend more time on. You just might be on to something here geo. Stay tuned.

Re: UFOs, are they real

UFO's, by definition, do exist. Anything that's flying and has not been identified, is a UFO. The better question is, do aliens exist.

Okay, ignoring my user id...

This question was tackled by Carl Sagan in one of his books. He didn't give a specific answer, just to say that it is impossible to really say with certainty that alien life does or doesn't exist. His only comment that showed his line of thinking was that the possibility for circumstances and ingredients to come together in just the right way and quantity is so small as to be nearly impossible.

Might there be life in other planets or star systems? There may be but not as we know it. If life does form easily, it's possible that most life on other planets and star systems are just in the form of bacteria.

Is there life on or in Jupiter? People might argue that the gases on that planet are toxic and corrosive and the constant storms raging on its surface will kill any lifeform on it. But that's thinking in terms of life here on earth. For sure, we would die on Jupiter. There may be other forms of life that are resistant to the gases or maybe even use them to survive. They would probably die here on earth. In fact, I'm sure of that.

The other question is, if alien life does exist, will it be advanced enough for interstellar travel? There would be no way to calculate that! Could they be orbiting us right now, observing, studying us? Or maybe even influencing our lives in some way?

Do I believe in them? I'd like to, for some reason. It sort of gives me hope that if the inhabitants of some planet or star system has evolved or survived to reach the stars, we might eventually be able to do that same.

So it needs a whole book to conclude ..

a) You can't tell...

b) We obviously don't exist...

I never could figure out why he was popular...his stuff always struck me as a triumph of presentation over content.

No, the whole book wasn't about calculating the odds for or against alien life. More like a chapter or so.

Part of the book (I forget the title, I left the book when I moved residence), dealt with what physical form might an alien take (if they exist).

He didn't say that we obviously don't exist. It's just that we are more likely to be a fortuitious creation. A collection of molecules that came together and formed bacteria or simple single cell life forms. These later cooperated and joined together and formed more complex life forms. Then he adds that the chances of the same thing happening again on a different planet, is probably very low.

Curiously, he mentioned that forming the elements of life is not that difficult. He described an experiment where all the elements that form life (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, etc) were placed in glass jar and the conditions of the early earth were simulated. What these were, I can't recall except that part of it involved lightning, which was simulated by using electrical sparks. A brownish gunk started to form around the inside of the jar which were similar to amino acids or something. It wasn't alive in any real sense, but the soup (as he called it) could have the potential to become life if given the right conditions.

I never could figure out why he was popular

You already mentioned the reason. He was an accomplished teacher/professor. He could make a presentation and make it interesting for the listener or reader. Most scientists do not make public presentations but he did it well. Whether his presentation had content depends on the listener.

Hi Jules,

If some one really knew than it would not be an unidentified, flying object.

I can tell you that if you read in the bible, Ezekiel 1:4 and read on. Now keep in mind that in Ezekiel's day the only technoliogy was a donkey, a cart wheels on the cart that were supposed to ride up, and down, but Ezekiel describes it as on it's side.

In verse 7 called colour of burnished brass, but taken back to the original text it's highly polished bronze. God's Thrown was on this vessel and there was two, or more of them. So you read it and tell me.

I have always found Ezekiel fascinating and wondered about all the "UFOs" in the Bible. To bring this down to earth, as it were, what technology do you think runs all these unidentified but clearly present flying objects that are seen in the sky, such as the "rods" phenomenon recently televised in L.A., CA?

I am not convinced that everything we see is otherworldly or alien technology. I am convinced that some people see things that are not readily explained in Popular Science.

Those Rod things I've seen on TV seem to be just seem to be a product of shutter speed and/or raster scan on large flying insects.

Hi,

Del The Cat comes the closest. The reason we can not see them is yes they are in another dimensions. That is why we can not see God. In order to see him, we must die first, unless God wants us to see. Gideon ask God to pull back the vail so his servant could see God's army. When God pulled it back there was legions of angels waiting to slay His enemies. Also look at the chariots of fire.

There is a lot of action in the skies, but they will never find one. God will not allow it.

forget outer space! when we gaze upon the unseen quark, when we squint to focus upon that tiny bit of Everything, do we see what's there? If the lighting is just right, can we make them out? There, there it is! A village, a township. An ocean and a world! Teeming with life. Apparent light years away from its nearest galaxy neighbor. Days brightened by a setting photon.

Innerspace - are we there yet?

Box? I don't see a freakin box.

I've been squinting just as hard as I can but I still can't see that darn quark! Maybe it's just hiding because of that fly swatter I'm carrying around.

Perhaps you are uncomfortable with the notion that we exist right now in a petri dish?

The reference to Sitchin is intended to highlight Sumerian, Assyrian and Babylonian historical records. Not so much the "circus fare" of recent times (I honestly hadn't kept pace with the old dodger, he or VonDanikken).

Nevertheless, I dismiss nothing more than I am willing to embrace it. I'll be Wilbur you be Orville. Together we can spur one another toward success revealing truth and fantasy along the way. But in the end one of us will taste the crow.

Nephilim?

Who Are We?

07/22/2007 11:08 PM

Okay, you guys have driven me to distraction with all this talk of Quarks and Sitchen and Von Danikken (a favorite). How about some Edgar Cayce? I can't stands no more!

It's my turn.

Who thinks we descended (ascended?) from apes, raise your hands. Who thinks we grew out of the slime of the biological petri dish? Who thinks we once lived in the ocean as fish then swam out and grew legs? Who thinks we are seeded here by some Alien fathers, perhaps those awful lizard kings? Who thinks we are here because an intelligent being (God) put us here as part of His Great Experiment? Who thinks we have Sixth Sense? Who thinks we are interdimensional beings who can disappear and reappear? Who thinks our DNA has been modified to reduce our knowledge of all things? Who thinks we are originally descended from Adam and Eve? Who thinks the that a Being Greater Than Us watches over us and is available at all times to help us? Who believes in Angels? Who believes in Ghosts? Who believes in Heaven? Who believes in Hell? Who believes in Karma? Who believes in the wheel of reincarnation?

Does this qualify as a new thread or shall we just take it from here?

You have a point vermin. If we don't know what we are, looking back to where we come from may be secondary. Then again, maybe it's the only way to find out what we are. Toooo much for me, but it's all sort of interesting. Maybe Photonicgirl/vermin/Kris/all here are just electronic blips in a vast and complex system. A passing ET might think so. The interactions that make up each persons 'being' and result in postings here, are so complex that long-range weather forecasts look simple by comparison. This is way too philosophical for me, but have fun folks.

Or how about this... For the last couple of days, there's been a few videos circulating on You-Tube of a rather talented street magician named Cyril. He does his stuff in Japan, and some of his tricks are mind-blowing - like sneezing off his own head, and then putting it back on.

While the theater of magic is fun, I'm guessing that a lot of tricks are a matter of particularly clever engineering. So, what about an Engineering of Magic thread?

It would be interesting to meet the members of the Berkeley family, I'm assuming they're a right good representation of the upper-class twit.

This is the whole social problem with England rolled up in a nut shell. You let these murdering, imperialistic morons back into the country as the empire crumbled, and allowed them to bring all their spoil with them. They then set themselves up as Lords and ladies, and want nothing to do with the common Englander whatsoever. So while they sit on most of the money and wouldn't think of putting it to any better use than clipping coupons, they live the high-life while the rest of you poor sods are drowning in massive unemployment and an incredibly high cost of living...

Did it ever occur to you that fox hunting is a metaphor for hunting down the poor villager that's trying to put a bit of meat on the family table by poaching one of "Me Lord's" precious rabbits?!

Isn't just about time to ask France if you can borrow Madame Le Farge and the guillotine?

For some inexplicable reason I am aware of the issues vermin. It could just be my location. Whilst your summary is generally right on the spot, there is a lot more I could add about the nature of the 'landed-gentry' and followers of such 'sports' as hunting. It may be a tad too off-topic even for me. I suspect that the USA has some very similar folks, just dressed in different names and engaged in different activities. I could go from the 'land of opportunity' the whole yardage including Carnegie Steel and crack-house. I suspect that not many indigenous Americans are on CR4 to give us a full comparison. A debate on who's toffs gave/took more from the world could be very lively. Being from the crappy end of the hamlet I could probably have a good stab at it .

For the most part, you have to remember that the English folk that migrated to the New World were motivated by the work ethic. Also, all other immigrants were motivated by the ethic of creating a better life for themselves and their family. It was all capitalism-based.

I hope I don't come across as racists - with the exception of Afro-Americans, who where brought here kicking and screaming. They are the only racial group that was brought to America without the dream of bigger and better lives for themselves and their families. For them immigration meant doom.

I thought that for a lot of early emigrants from Europe, persecution was a precursor to settling in America and the whole work-ethic thing. I was also having a slight dig at the fact that ( as with the British empire) aboriginal (pre-Columbian) people were quickly shafted by the newcomers. From what little I know America has a strong bootstrapping work-ethic, but it's not the only place that does. Ghettos are a global thing, even if by different names in different places.

Vermin, you left out the religious freedom that people were seeking when they left Europe to come to the "new world." I had a friend that did some studies in Phillipino history and lo and behold, there were slaves here on the U.S. before any came over from Africa. Oh, and do not forget about those Irish people that were brought over and forced into slavery.

Hmmmmmmmm, homo erotica? I don't get it either. Maybe it is their way of looking at what it is that we (the people that the "abduct") have been eating lately. Instead of just doing simple blood tests. Wouldn't they have something (if "they"- the aliens were so advanced) to just be able to look at us with a scope of some sort and see what it is that they want to see? I think they are just video taping it and taking it back to their base and showing the reactions of the different humans as a sort of Blooper video.

Have you ever heard of the Podiatrist that was approached by an "abductee"? He claimed to have an implant in his arm and asked this guy if he could take it out of him (I guess the good dr. was a believer in ufo's and abductions). The first thing the dr. noted was that there was no sign of scar tissue from the piece of "metal" being implanted (from cutting the skin), next nerves had grown around and attached to the implant, the body did not respond to the implant like it would a typical foreign object, and lastly when the nerves were cut away from the device(?) the slight signal that was being emitted by the object was silenced. Oh, and did I mention that (supposedly) the object was made up of materials that were non earthly (not on the element charts), cue X-Files theme again... Or how about Close encounters?

There are some vids on youtube that are taken from the space shuttle, look it up some of them are pretty cool. There is a reference; though, that I could not find. It is in regards to a picture taken from a Geosynchronous satellite that supposedly shows a photo of a Huge A$# UFO. I have found references and I am assuming Reproductions of the pic(s) but not the real thing. July 17, 1992 - Earth Orbit, GEOS-8 Satellite, Space this is the thing to look up but if you google this ref. nothing comes up. At least for me nothing happened.

Why google Ron Paul? I have been hearing that he has been behind the scenes of a news letter that "shows" that his representation to the voters is not quite the best for a person that is running for office; especially, for the Presidency. Something about rascist remarks and belonging (again - allegedly) to a successionist group or movement 10-20 years ago. He, from what I have heard, seems to be the only candidate not on anyones pay roll (read: not bought out by big business)...

Yes he is. He has a vicious campaign tactic. Not do sh!t.

Seriously, he appears to be a man of remarkable integrity with a consistent and common sense voting record which is why I enjoy reading watching everything he has to say. I would love to see this man in office.

'Google Ron Paul' is a bumper sticker here.

Well, I don't know about her pulling anything off good, or any other way. She shed some "crocodile tears" and supposedly came in contact with her "inner voice" or something like that. B.S.! Her and Obama can take a long walk off of a short pier into a pond stocked with pirhanna for all I care (not really, just I am sick of all of the rhetoric. "We are going to change..., or we have changed... who knows). I have heard that Ron Paul is (or could be considered) a successionist, is (or could be considered a racist - in a news letter he stated something to the effect that white people needed to get out of New York before the 'animals' got them - refering to anyone that is not white...) Granted I know the evening news, is jaded but are they making this stuff up? I don't know - I wish I had a crystal ball to be able to see who it was that would be best for this country, but I don't & can't. So, we have the spinmasters that tell us what they want us to know, what they want us to believe to be truth... This 2 party system needs a HUGE COLONIC(!), ao that they can see that this country needs to be represented and not the Corporations ...

I heard that when that little Texas billionaire Ross Perot was running for the prez poaition that he backed out only because his family had been threatened with DEATH... So he backed out of the race (would he have won? Who knows, somebody was awfully paranoid about his standings in the polls at the time though).

Our own system is in a right sorry state. Tony Blair reportedly sat on a beach going through a 're-birthing' experience. Gordon Brown has a dubious track record. Hopefully he'll take up tree-hugging soon. We don't have any credible candidates for a new leader when the next election comes. I shall have to read up some more on the American situation. At one time a few years back it looked like Colin Powell was going to chuck his hat in the ring. The picture we got reported over here of Ross Perot was that he was seen by many as a ruthless business type. The American way seems to function good in that I've seen candidates stand in open debate with each other - our lot don't have the balls for this. We are still pretty much in a 2 party system, though it's increasingly hard to tell the difference. Local government is a different matter, but just as frustrating. In Scotland they have a bewildering number of elections for Government. There are a lot of Scots working in English Government - they can vote on English matters, but we can't vote on Scottish ones. It's all barking mad.

Hmmmmmm, Well we have basically two parties over here democrats and republicans, there are though a few independent parties. They never amount to much. The last time anyone went very far as an indy was Perot (yes, he was an extreme businessman-he supposedly drove an old 70's or 80's Cadillac because he was too cheap to buy another vehicle. THe man was worth millions, billions or whatever amount you to put into there of dollars... Cheap? Yeah, but oh well...

Too much money can be a bitter poison. Who'd want to end up as Howard Hughes did. It seems to happen to many rich people, although music stars seem to be the worst for 'losing the plot'. There was a somewhat legendary American heiress (who lived to an old age) who was notorious for her miserliness. Don't remember her name, but amongst other things she would not even call a Doctor when her son was ill (he died as a result). On the other hand one of those billionaire types sat down calmly and accepted his fate aboard the Titanic, if the situation as portrayed in 'A Night To Remember' is true.

Yes and then there was the billionaire ( or was it a millionaire?) in the 30's that was going around and giving his money away to people in need because he saw the light and that he couldn't take the $$$$ with him... I wouldn't mind coming into money but not in droves. I think that I would have some crazy rich mans desires that would get me into trouble really quickly if I had TOO much in hand. Give me enough to get a HOUSE and be comfotable while I am still working in the field. I will be happy. Until then, I will be working in the field being happy as an electrician.

I'd be the same if I had too much money. Life would loose purpose - the need to get involved in stuff. Wouldn't complain if a mystery benefactor gave me about a million though !

What are you, some kind of nut?!

Hell, it's yachts full of thousand dollar hookers for all my friends! And when we get tired of that, it's jumbo-jets full of thousand dollar hookers for all my friends!

I suppose charity would figure in there someplace...

If you get a yacht with a thousand $1dollar hookers, you may need a Doc as well.

I'd really construct a secret underground lair in an extinct volcano. There I would swivel in a chair whilst stroking a white Persian Cat........

In keeping with "twoforoneocity" you could hire needy or disadvantaged hookers.

Hi Ferris,

If you mean where have I been, I'm still being very active (click on my profile and you can see recent posts . JohnDG'ds thread on 'Evening Meal' is good fun/interesting). As to this thread, it seems to have died. I started a new thread about dolphins yesterday ('seek and ye shall find' as they say !). UK has political sleaze chaos, and my ongoing DIY is by turns agonizing/funny. PM me if you can't find any links etc. Always happy to chat about stuff, but it might be best via PM if it's 'none CR4' else Chris L will come shoot us !

Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate that understands what the constitution means and how our current administration has been destroying it.

Hey vermin,

You said "the rest of you poor sods are drowning in massive unemployment and an incredibly high cost of living..."

I believe right now most of the folks in the U.K. are drowning in WATER!
