Lightships, Black Holes, Anti-Mass Fields
Plenty of speculation.

According to a 1987 Gallup poll, almost 50 percent of Americans
believe Flying Saucers are real. 30 percent or more believe
they have seen odd phenomena that may be UFOs.

Although many sightings have subsequently been shown to be
misidentified common aircraft or explainable atmospheric
phenomena, a quite respectable number of sightings and
encounters defy explanation and are classified as "Unknown."

Despite the government's attempts to debunk UFO sightings and
encounters as waking dreams and hoaxes perpetrated by people
who have lost a few marbles, there are no satisfactory
explanations for the behavior of aerial craft and TLOs
(Transient Luminous Objects) that apparently can venture
through space or the earth's atmosphere with equal ease, stop
suddenly from hypersonic flight, or execute right angle turns,
climbs and dives.

Nor has anyone explained how or why TLOs appear suddenly, hover
or sail silently for long minutes and just as suddenly vanish.

If the military found UFOs that have reportedly crashed on this
planet and have systematically unwound the secrets of their
construction and propulsion, why, after nearly 50 years, have
they not been able to duplicate the engines that drive them?
Why have scientists and engineers been unable to duplicate in
military aircraft the maneuvers UFOs appear to perform?

In the 1950s, the A.V. Roe Company developed and built the
Avrocar in Canada. It was supposed to be capable of speeds of
600 miles per hour. After a number of years, the Canadian
government lost interest and the U.S. Air Force began funding
the program.

Except that it ultimately provided important research data for
hovercraft, the Avrocar was a dismal failure. It could barely
lift its own weight a few inches off the ground and, even then,
was almost dangerously unstable.

But engineers learned that there were major difficulties
understanding how the ovate ellipsoid moved within our
atmosphere. Flying Saucers, if they exist, certainly do not use
the same propulsion or lifting technology as either our jet
aircraft or rockets. Additionally, there are also physiological
problems for any human passengers in a craft that can execute
the amazing maneuvers displayed by UFOs. The known laws of
physics suggests that humans could not survive such maneuvers.

If Flying Saucers are alien spacecraft, if they really exist,
they are obviously powered by some force our scientists do not,
as yet, understand (or, at least, will not reveal). We have
some clues about these unusual power sources. Many reports tell
of automobile engines stopping or stalling when in close
proximity to UFOs. Lights are often dimmed and instruments
often stop functioning, suggesting a force field that impedes
the ionic flow within electrical circuits.

The erratic flight of UFOs during "Falling Leaf" descents is
another clue. A study of the physics of such movement suggests
that, like a platter falling in water, the UFO becomes
virtually massless during decent. If the problem of mass can be
overcome, the problem of destructive inertial effects of
instant maneuvers is solved as well.

Several credible engineers have used this information to design
a workable UFO on paper. American chemist and engineer
consultant, Kenneth Behrendt, has devised the AMF (anti-mass
field) theory to construct a complex mathematical blueprint of
a circular aircraft that would prevent mass field radiation.
This would render the craft essentially gravity-free.

One of the most interesting points of Behrendt's theory is that
such a craft would ionize the surrounding atmosphere, provoking
effects that are identical to those reported by UFO witnesses.

At the present time our scientists are stymied by the
constraints of aerodynamic shape, lack of exotic construction
materials and a suitable propulsion system.

Additionally, while a number of ideas have been suggested to
explain how UFOs and TLOs arrive from some apparently distant
worlds, no truly cogent theory has been presented or endorsed
by credible scientists.

One suggestion is that UFOs travel through "Stargates" from
parallel universes, from inside the earth itself or from
distant galaxies. One such stargate could be the collapsed
stars that are so dense not even light can escape their
gravitational pull. Because they emit no light, they are called
"Black Holes."

Some astronomers speculate that black holes could be shortcuts
through time and space. Since it is known that matter can pass
through these holes out of our space-time continuum, some
UFOlogist theorize spacecraft can also pass through the
Stargates and travel great distances from one galaxy to

Other people speculate that universes might exist side by side,
actually overlapping but vibrating with different frequencies
so that they are not normally visible or interactive with one
another. Occasionally, the theory states, windows open in one
or more of these universes allowing beings and machines to pass
from one to another.

The Bermuda Triangle might be classified as such a window to
another universe. If so, alien spacecraft may not always be
here by choice. They might enter these windows and stargates
unwittingly or accidentally only to find themselves in very
strange lands indeed!

But once they (or we) learn the secrets of the stargates, it is
possible they may be manipulated at will to allow instant
travel over cosmic distances to any part of the universe. It
would be rather like stepping into a telephone booth, dialing a
number and, instead of reaching a party by voice, one would be
instantly transmitted to that person's home!

There is some evidence that the military might have conducted
some experiments in transportation of humans and machines after
the Second War during the Philadelphia Experiment. Sparse
reports indicate the experiments were fatally disastrous. Navy
personnel died or went insane. Some were seen to burst into
flames. Others were seen to walk through walls and not appear
on the other side, as reported in a Norfolk, Virginia

Did they step into one of the windows and vanish, only to find
themselves on a distant planet in another galaxy? If so, where
are they and why can't they return?

Or is it possible they can and do return, but in a form not
recognizable by human senses? Could the accidental time-space
travellers be returning periodically as TLOs? TLOs have been
known to execute apparently intelligent maneuvers, respond to
lights and radio signals, and even to telepathic commands! This
suggests some sort of sentient energy, the nature of which we
do not yet understand.

Another theory, largely unaccepted, is that UFOs are alien
spacecraft that travel by sheer brute force from one system to
another, much as would our own spaceships during a journey from
the Earth to the moon, or from the Earth to Mars.

Such great distances separate the planets and solar systems,
that the time involved to travel from one to another would be
so vast that the original inhabitants of a spaceship would have
died centuries before the craft could arrive at its target

The nearest stellar constellation, Alpha Centauri, is over four
light-years away. Using the fastest spacecraft yet constructed,
it would take earthlings 80,000 years to reach it. After so
long a time, the original purpose of the journey would have
been completely forgotten.

Even if a spaceship could attain the speed of light, it would
take six years to reach Alpha Centauri since nearly two years
would be required to accelerate to and decelerate from the
speed of light.

Clearly, this is not the way to travel from one star system to
another for not only would the passengers aboard the starship
not know why they were travelling through space, the spacecraft
itself would be little more than a derelict after such a long
period of time.

It would be impossible to get a spare part for the toilet, for
instance, when the spaceship was several billion miles from
home base. Messages, which would be transmitted at the speed of
light, would require three or four years to reach the
spacecraft or Earth and who could correlate the answer with the
question after all that time?

Indeed, if the spaceship was travelling at exactly the speed of
light, radio messages would never reach it, since it would
always be outrunning the signal.

We now believe that spacecraft have not travelled to Earth from
any planet in our own solar system. Data from Voyager's journey
to the outer planets has revealed that life as we know it
cannot and does not exist on any other planet in this system.

Although "Nuts and Bolts" UFOs have been shown for the most
part to be secret military aircraft or other test vehicles, a
small number of unidentified UFOs remain on the lists. They
merit serious investigation if they are what many people
believe them to be. We need to understand how they operate and
how they travel from one star system to another with ease.

Additionally, we need to solve the mystery of TLOs. If they are
naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena, then we need to find
explanations for them once and for all. If they are visitors
from other times or dimensions, then we need to discover how
they get here and why they find our planet and its inhabitants
so interesting.

Travelling at the speed of light or faster probably only works in the movies.
