A Curiosity

Hey this is Tommy, sorry for not posting earlier. This has been on my mind recently and i would like to see what others opinions are on it. so i had this conversation with a friend of mine about UFO's. I came up with a theory that instead of people seeing UFO's in the sky they are really seeing time machines from the future landing. I think this is possible cause no one ever sees aliens so maybe its just humans, thats why we do not what it really is.

Sorry for the randomness

I like it Tommy. That is a technique I often use. When someone says something really silly, I come out with something even more outrageous. For example when Dan says that Columbus is the largest city in the U.S., I agree and explain the reason it doesn't seem so populated is because most of the people are moleman living unseen, underground.

I can't even begin to believe that Dan said Columbus is the largest city in the US, unless of course he was responding to something really silly.

Ha ha. Nice. I'm kidding, but he almost said it.

Ah, many a sleepness night I've layed awake and wondered about this type of thing. I think the real question is, when these UFO humans come back from the future are they affecting their own future or is it preordained for them to travel back in time?

James R Harvey said...

Well, I'm no expert, but with String Theory and some interpretations of Quantum Theory, they would come back to a parallel universe. That solves most time travel conundrums including meeting yourself, but I think it eliminates the possibility that our universe would ever be visited. So we are back where we began, madame..tunk-a-tunk tunk. (Wallace Stevens)

I think UFO's are space travelers from Atlantis who left earth many thousands of years ago and are now returning home. Relativity tells us that if you travel close to the speed of light on a spaceship and then come back to Earth, the time which passes on the ship is much less than that which has elapsed on Earth. In other words, if the trip to a distant star and back takes several decades or more for the astronaut, lots more time will have passed on Earth. So, when the astronauts get back, human society may well have experienced thousands of years (or more). See Planet of the Apes. I wonder what they think of the place now.

James R Harvey said...

Exactly. However, as you approach the speed of light, you also approach infinite mass. Nevertheless, if the UFO's are a lot smaller than an atom, they could go pretty fast. No wonder no one sees them.

Sean Harvey said...

I never saw a problem with meeting yourself from the future, you just knew that at some point you would have to go back in time to meet yourself at that moment. People always bring up meeting yourself... not that big a deal.

Big Myk said...

What happens if you go back in time and murder your prior self? If you've died, you won't be around to go back and actually kill yourself.

James R Harvey said...

A big problem with meeting your future self is lethargy, depression, and even suicide. Apparently, it is quite disturbing to see what you become in the future.

Sean Harvey said...

There is always the chance that I like what I see in the future, and work even harder to get it?

James R Harvey said...

There is a chance, but it is about as slim as the chance of getting hold of a time machine.

"as you approach the speed of light, you also approach infinite mass. Nevertheless, if the UFO's are a lot smaller than an atom, they could go pretty fast. No wonder no one sees them" There is a higher probability that the UFO's are much larger than an atom because the UFOs, being larger, could carrying more information at the same speed as an atom while maintaining the similar near light speeds with only a slight trade off of more energy needed (difference between mass of an electron and a UFO body is irrelevant). The most efficient way to travel would be mass less so one could travel at the speed of light. Since a body is just information, oscillating between light and matter, just convert matter into light (pattern of protons) for faster travel and back into matter when the time is convenient.
