Unidentified flying objects. Yet, the first thing that pops into our mind when we think of UFOs is the dehydrated face of an awfully malnutritioned gray alien, maybe green.
But what of UFOs? Are they really aliens? Or is there another explanation? For the sake of curiosity, we shall explore the latter.
5. Time Travellers
This is probably the second-best known theory, right after the “aliens” explanation. The idea that UFOs could be time travelers for the future has been proposed again, and again, and again.
That’s exactly why it is the first name on the list. As we progress, we’ll explore the wider and more controversial theories.
Dr. Bruce Goldberg, who is normally a dentist and hypnotherapist, claims himself to be a specialist in “future life progression”. His theory is that UFOs are actually time travellers from the distant future, chrononauts, and that grays are simply: the evolved humans.
4. The Imaginal Realm
Remember how we all have been obsessing about the Buddhist concept of “tulpas” or “imagined reality”, ever since the idea has surfaced the internet? Similar is the idea of the “imaginal realm”.
This alternate dimension is supposed to be the result of the collective imagination of all, often interlapping with this reality, leading to such phenomena as UFOs, fairies, ghosts, demons and so forth.
Also, certain people are gifted with the special ability of visualising this realm, aka, psychics, visionaries and prophets.
3. Demonic Entities
This is one of the many beliefs that Christians worrying about the “Final Days” often seem to have.
They tend to believe that UFOs and aliens are just a propaganda machine for Satan’s dark army, who are trying to control the human race camouflaging themselves as aliens from the outer space, therefore creating a world of chaos and anarchy.
While many will argue that this is paranoid, if UFOs exist, there is no reason why demons can’t.
2. Fourth Dimensional Objects
The only reason we are mentioning this theory is that we found a rather interesting quote on Listverse.com:
Imagine a flat plane on which two-dimensional creatures live. They cannot perceive our third dimension, but we can see them. Say you stick your finger into their plane.
From their point of view, an object has suddenly and inexplicably appeared out of nowhere. It also appears to change size and shape depending on exactly what cross-section of your finger is in their plane.
When you pull your finger out, the object disappears, and no one believes the two-dimensional creature who saw it because he was drunk and is always making up crazy stories.
Yep, that’s a possibility, and if it can happen to them, it can probably happen to us too. You know, when dealing with fourth-dimensional objects like UFOs. Problem is, there is no proof about an existing world of two-dimensional stick figures, or a fourth-dimensional one.
1. UFOs Are a Missing Link
If we maintain that UFOs are indeed ultra-modern spaceships used by an advanced race of creatures, it seems more likely that the creatures originate from Earth than a different planet. People who hold on to this belief often use Ockham’s Razor to justify their viewpoint.
While it seems highly unlikely that any creatures thriving on this surface are still unknown to humans, people often combine this with the Hollow Earth Theory and other “cryptid-related” theories, therefore the term “Cryptoterrestrial”.
