Space Time Travel - How Would Aliens Be Capable Of Reaching Us?

Do we need to attain a higher intellectual level to fully understand interplanetary space travel?

I heard through the grapevine of someone who was so fascinated by Tibet that he spent some time there and allegedly witnessed the process of a monk who in the knowledge that he was going to die shrank himself over a 2 year period through meditative techniques until he became merely a light emitting crystal. It is rumoured that a collection of such manifestations exist in a cave high in the Himalayas where its entrance is now blocked by a huge boulder. For some this story is complete fantasy while others are prepared to open their minds to this type of possibility.

Life for me is simply a perception of reality and can manifest itself into any form if the conditions are right. As an ever flowing energy of continual interrelated actions/reactions it is capable of taking any form dependant on the collective forces influencing it. How completely different are the views of people living in the remotest parts of the world versus those in our highly regulated and managed modern cities. Eating a nutritious bug from a fallen tree stump to surviving on blubbery seal and whale meat in a frozen wasteland might seem inconceivable to an urbanised city-dweller who simply picks what they need off a shelf. The notion of no running water, central heating or air conditioning is unthinkable and walking around in next-to-nothing or heavily clad in animal skins would be a disgraceful come down to the particularly detached designer outfitted type.

However, regardless of these differences life is the same no matter what perceived gap there may be in material wealth or ‘so-called’ standards of living because the constant remains – creation, refuelling, reproduction, and extinction. In fact, from its basic foundations to the furthest point in our perceived existence, life observes these very same rules. The only differences are the intellectual levels in which things exist, a higher or lower dimensional plain you might say. If the remote nomadic survivor or the city dweller found themselves trapped in each others existences, it is likely they would struggle to survive. They would certainly not possess the inherent knowledge for that existence and would be baffled by the respective techniques or technologies involved. Everyone has their senses attuned to the energies around them which enable them to survive and flourish in their particular environments. The visions we hold and the understandings we possess in our respective existences must be real to us otherwise we would not survive.

As I have touched on in other hubs, our Western philosophy has chased its metaphorical tail to a point where it has discovered a reality that has always been there. In-line with mystical thinking, life is a single energy flow where all is connected. Science and mathematical formula may capture this life data and enable us to manipulate these forces in a mechanical manner and this demonstrable chisel and stone methodology remains the leading ideology. Yet in our early existence science and mystical belief worked hand-in-hand, they were but one and the same. Over our evolution, the easier to demonstrate scientific philosophy has dominated our thinking while mystical views have seemed less realistic and more imaginary. Through technological advancement, the perception of our planet has become smaller, yet the distance between us and the edge of the cosmos as become farther away and some say it even continues to expand. Is it that we are discovering more or is it that we getting further away from the reality?

The fact is that time and space are not tangible measures in the mystical world and as physicist have begun to discover, nor is it at a sub-atomic level. The question therefore, is whether our perception of space/time and therefore distance/autonomy, is an illusion that leads us to believe to travel the cosmos requires generating enough fuel power to propel us across a massive distance as quickly as possible. Our further perceived barrier is our physical inability to survive such travel and the inhospitable atmospheres we are likely to encounter. How do other life forms, if indeed you believe they exist, manage to overcome these obstacles? I see no reason why we should be the only things in the cosmos and enough evidence exists to suggest their existence. So what do those who appear at different points in the cosmos know that we do not? Might it be a case of transcending different plains of existence?

At our sub-atomic physical level it is becoming more apparent that we are intellectually integral to life, a concept that is not unfamiliar to mystical thinkers. Our perceived thought processes are integral to the oneness, the energy forces that constitute life. Is it the case then that technology and the mind are an integrated process? Can we effectively bring the mountain to us rather than go to it? It is a concept that our inherent Western weights and measures philosophy would struggle to comprehend. Equally, while mystical philosophers might find this notion completely comprehendible, they may be devoid of the technological advances and expertise of the scientific thinker. Is the perception of conquering unimaginable distances and surviving inhospitable environments the illusion of science's mechanistic limitations? Will the next stage in our advancement be the realisation that intellectual/scientific integration is the next dimensional level? Who knows? But until then our ability to breach the cosmos will continue to seem like a million light years away.

Goody5 thank you for your comment. History has shown that the insurmountable and unbelievable can eventually become an everyday common reality. The World was once thought to be flat, flying machines were things of fantasy and real concerns once existed during the evolution of the auto mobile whether a human could survive travel at speeds over 30 mph.

There are snippets of suggested evidence that a different knowledge and levels of technological/spiritual advancement existed and were extinguished catastrophically thousands of years prior to our current evolutionary cycle which might imply we have yet to re-discover a path outside of our current mechanistic scientific processes.

It seems to me that history is full of stories of explorers who found ways around the barriers they found in their way, and went on to new discoveries. Why would an imagined barrier be any different to a theorist in space-time structure?

There is a multitude of evidence on this planet that the technology that currently dictates our lives is possibly inferior to that of our ancestors. How were the Pyramids and thousands of other similar structures built around our planet. Today's engineers struggle to find an explanation. There is very much evidence that human beings have existed for a very long time on this planet and have suffered cyclical catastrophic events that have eradicated previous civilisations and the advanced knowledge they held. Those who dictate our religious/Darwinist education continue to dismiss such evidence at every turn and sweep such notions under the carpet.

The Ica stones, Maltese tramlines, Central and South American civilisations, Chinese/Russian pyramids, Olmec sculptures, ancient copper mines, pyramids of Wisconsin and Edward Leedskalnin's coral castle are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of so called mysteries. It is even suggested that the lost land of Atlantis was in fact the Americas..?

Evidence of rock structures fused together and the historical accounts of events involving immense energy and flying objects may suggest global wars involving nuclear weaponry.

My point is that there may be a technology involving both physical and intellectual interaction which has been discovered in the past that we may be on a journey towards ourselves.

Inter-Galactic connections (e.g. Dogon tribe of Mali)has been part of our history and consigned to myth and legend by the controlling forces on this planet amongst whom some of this past knowledge may well be known.

The notion of extraterrestrial beings and technology alongside the realisation of our own stifled capabilities is a distinct possibility in my view...

I've just commented on your UFO experience so I know you've seen one, I've actually carried out a lot of research into the subject.

According to the unofficial disclosure movement that has been happening over the last few decades, the theory seems to be that there are 2 types of gravity - the A wave and the B wave.

Flying saucers tap into the gravity-A wave and amplify it. However, they only manipulate the gravity-A wave that is surrounding (outside) the saucer therefore there is no intertia inside the craft.

This allows them to travel at thousands of miles per hour and make sharp turns without splattering up against the wall from the g-force.

We will bring them here ... if Genetic Quarantine allows such import.

Fascinating viewpoints.

I have heard of Tibetan monks turning into balls of light, floating across the chasm between mountains and appearing as human on a distant ledge. Marco Polo supposedly saw a monk floating in air while meditating.

For a spiritual being, travel could prove instantaneous. No need to worry about relativistic effects.

But could "aliens" possess warp drive? Or something even more exotic? Who knows.

Some have wondered why aliens would want to bother coming here. Some of our dark craziness might pollute their pure minds (the disease of ego). ;-)

Acceptance of half truth is acceptance of half reality. Our self-centric ideas must accept that there has been plenty of extra aeons in which a totally superior race could have developed here, or elsewhere. Not fantastical at all. Realist.

One closes their eyes in prayer and engages with the power of the almighty. Is it to suggest that what they actually sense is pure imagination and on opening their eyes they return to the reality that god is fiction?

Close your eyes, and anything is possible. Even perfectly normal. Unimaginable feats become ordinary. Dreams are fascinating glimpses into another world.

However, you will need to open your eyes...eventually...

Born here. Directly linked to us. Born elsewhere, directly linked to us. Tales of leprechauns and fairies, flying saucers and orbs. The truth is all around us, we simply must perceive.
