I was interviewed for an article on UFOs for an issue of "Maryland Life" magazine. It was an awesome experience for me and a lot of fun. I believe that my UFO encounter mentioned in my article The Philadelphia Experiment , UFOs, Tesla and Other Strange Things , has something to do with my research in the future. This maybe circular logic and a self-fulfilling prophecy, but I believe I had something to do with the UFO that appeared to me that night. The links between my life's work and that event, go back at least 100 years to the time of genius Nikola Tesla. Margaret Cheney's book, "Man Out of Time" is a good read on the subject. Also, Timothy Good has a series of books on the world-wide UFO phenomena. It is a very interesting story of how I came across those books in a Texas bookstore one night in the mid 1990's. At the end of Good's, "Above Top Secret", he practically eliminates all the explanations for UFOs, except for them originating in the future. This supported my long held beliefs in the subject, for which I lived in denial many years. The evidence is looking like an interwoven tapestry of the events in my life. I have believed in more things than this, for far less compelling reasons.
Why would technologically advanced civilizations take an interest in mankind and this present world and me and my mother who witnessed a UFO? It is very, very suspicious behaviour. Surely they could do better, or just out-right take this Earth and anyone in it if they desired to do so. Perhaps there is a hidden link between them and us, or at least with some of the more benevolent beings controlling the UFOs reportedly contacted. They seem to have agendas that no one knows and that have not been revealed to the common man though some have had memories brought out in therapy, regression and hypnosis. The real truth is hidden from the people, the MIB told me, because they cannot yet handle it, and chaos would ensue were they suddenly enlightened. Is that why UFOs are silently coming in and out of this world, revealing themselves gradually, but consistently to more and more people? Could they be us, somewhere down the line, but they don't want to upset entirely the current course of events? That would explain similarities between them and us, even if some have been genetically engineered for special purposes. If true , it suggests that UFO technology can be considered where might mankind advance to a few centuries or less from now, if only we can cooperate as a species and not destroy each other or the planet first. If the future is involved, then perhaps the UFO creators' existence depends upon the preservation and nurturing of certain time lines and events leading up to the time(s) and space(s) from which the UFOs originate.
Then again, according to Einstein's work, a time-traveler traveling at close to the speed of light that takes a trip from Earth and back lasting ten years, would arrive back at Earth where 1000 years of history had transpired. This means that some of the UFOs we see in our skies could have left the planet Earth over a thousand years ago or more, finding the world they left now gone. It could give a new perspective to the UFO dilemma. Is this one reason why they are silently cruising our skies, mystified after finding the world they left totally unrecognizable?
What if you had left on trip only to find every we everthing and everyone we knew gone upon our return? How would you act? Would run around announcing to everyone who you were? Perhaps if you were wise, you would you be more careful till you got the lay of the land again? It would be shocking to see. Like if the author of Beowulf woke up like Rip Van Winkle. except from a slightly longer nap. He may think he was facing Grendel and had found his dragon! Maybe that's where the story came from, time-travelers ariving on this planet or another telling their tales! Who really knows?
I hope to live long enough to see the day when mankind's pasts and his futures combine into a new golden age for humanity. Maybe that is what the silent visitors to our skys have returned to see. Some perplexingly at our appearance on their planet, and having been present at the inception of the Earth. Also to find everything they knew when they left here gone, and the Earth, nature and her beauty on the verge of collapse. Upon closer investigation they would find us here covering the Earth like a plague, polluting it and destroying it and each other like a terrible virus killing everthing in our reach. No wonder the UFO civilizations act as they in our lives and seem to flee from us when WE appear ominously to them.
