UFOs and Ghosts by Diane Tessman
FATE Magazine Issue 725
What is the connection, if any, between ghosts and UFOs? We, the human perceivers...we are the connection.
Question One Are ghosts a phenomenon of the past? By definition, ghosts “should” be in the past, being perceived by fellow humans there. Think of a street in old New Orleans, around 1800. Women scurry around in long dresses, carriages with horses rattle by, and at the docks, slaves are unloading cargo. Watching the un- loading is a beautiful brown-skinned woman in simple clothing, head wrapped turban-style. She seems troubled. Move forward to 2013, and down by the New Orleans waterfront, a young man suddenly perceives the misty, translucent form of a mixed-race woman, wearing a head-wrap, looking worried. This would be a typical ghost sighting: Often the ghost is from a turbulent, colorful period of time and often the ghost is unhappy. Seldom does the ghost look like solid flesh, but rather has a phantom-like appearance.
Question Two Are UFOs a phenomenon of the Future? We don’t know what “time” UFOs are from, let alone their origin, but in another hundred years, humans may have flying craft which nullify gravity, rather than operating aerodynamically like our current airplanes. Therefore our craft will be able to stop suddenly, make right angle turns, and maneuver in ways that airplanes can- not. So when a man steps out for a smoke in 2014 and suddenly spots a UFO, we assume the UFO is physically present in 2014, hovering above this man. Instead, what if this man had actually perceived a future event, just as the young man who saw the ghost in New Orleans was “seeing” the past?
Question Three Does the perceiver influence what is seen? One of the most bizarre premises of quantum theory states that by the very act of perceiving, the observer affects the observed reality. Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science recently conducted an experiment demonstrating how a beam of electrons is affected by the act of being observed. The experiment, headed by Prof. Mordehai Heiblum, revealed that the observer's influence on what actually takes place increases with the amount of observation that occurs. Heiblum and his team concluded that when a quantum "observer" is watching, the behavior of particles will change. When behaving as waves, they can simultaneously pass through several openings in a barrier and then meet again at the other side of the barrier. This “meeting”is known as interference. However, interference resulting from waves can only occur when no one is watching. Once an ob- server begins to watch, the picture changes dramatically: If a particle can be seen going through one opening, then it’s clear it didn't go through another opening. In other words, when under observation, electrons are being "forced" to behave like particles and not like waves. In a sense, human observations seem to “cement” these events into solid reality; when in pure wave form, a number of potential outcomes existed. It might be that a few people have an ability to “change perception” more than the rest of us; this might explain such things as why some people have seen multiple UFOs throughout their lifetimes.
Question Four Is human perception affected by the Doppler Effect? A quick reminder of what the “Doppler Effect” is. There are two Doppler Effects, one that deals with sound, which is commonly heard when a vehicle sounding a siren passes, and recedes from an observer. The received frequency is higher (compared to the emitted frequency) during the approach; it is identical at the instant of passing by, and it is lower during the recession. The second Doppler Effect, dealing with light and motion, is slightly different from the sonic variety. A celestial object moving toward us shows a blue shift (Doppler Effect) and a celestial object moving away from us shows a red shift (Doppler Effect). Is it possible that ghosts and UFOs also involve electromagnetic anomalies, the “distortion” of light as it usually acts, and as time then dilates, a window opens on The Past or the Future? Question Five When we spot a ghost, do we perceive the Past through a peephole in time? Let’s assume that most of the time, we are standing in the center of the Doppler Effect. We perceive neither through the perception of the red shift nor the blue shift. We are the “normal” dot in the center. This is what we call The Present. Illustration: Red Shift in time ripples away, blue shift in light and time comes toward. suddenly the perception of the human observer has shifted back through time. This could happen as the observer is subject to light and time fluctuations, which may happen once in a while within human consciousness. Instead of standing in the center of the Doppler Effect, she suddenly has the “red shift” view of time. (Red shift leads to The Past, which we are moving away from). Question Six When we spot a UFO, do we perceive The Future through a peephole in time? Is the observer’s human con- sciousness suddenly functioning through a window of blue shift per- ception, no longer perceiving from the middle dot of The Present? Perhaps some UFOs, rather than “vis- iting” us, are actually going about their business in the Future, albeit in the same physical spot where we “see” them mov- ing. Ghosts could manifest because suddenly the perception of the human ob- server has shifted back through time. This could happen as the observer is subject to light and time fluctuations, which may happen once in a while within human consciousness. Instead of standing in the center of the Doppler Effect, she suddenly has the “red shift” view of time. (Red shift leads to The Past, which we are moving away from). I realize that many circumstances regarding UFOs suggest that they are here with us in the Present. There is often more than one observer (perceiver); also, CE2 means there is physical evidence that the UFO was here (like burned marks on ground or radar confirmation). This does- n’t happen often, or at least we are not told about it. However, in a number of reports, UFOs simply wink out, as if a peephole into “some-when else” just closed. Per- haps the UFO is simply going about its business in some other time, and in these cases, some fluke of space-time allowed the observer to perceive non-temporal events. Question Seven Why do ghosts usually belong to the near-past and not to the cave days? How often does someone see ghosts trudging from Africa to Europe as part of the early migration in which humans moved out of Mother Africa? How often does someone see a Neanderthal getting ready to throw a spear? Not often! Stories suggest that observers have seen regiments of marching, ghostly Romans and apparitions of Celt warriors, but these are rare. Sometimes ghosts appear to be family members. A friend of mine tells me that her grandfather still haunts the family home. Grandpa is from the recent past. So it might be that the “red shift perception” of The Past works better if the ghost is nearer to The Present. As the red shift continues outward in the rippling pool of events/time, it grows more distant from the observer of The Present. In other words, 1800 A.D. may be easier to perceive “spectrally” than 12,000 B.C. Who knows if the UFOs we spot in a blue shift of perception are from a few hundred years—or two million years— in The Future? Question Eight Is the connection between UFOs and ghosts simply the phenomenon of time itself? UFOs shift perception to the Future while ghosts shift our perception to the Past. Ninety nine percent of the time, we stand on the dot in the center called The Present. Is human consciousness subject to the quantum physics of the Cosmos? It seems impossible that human consciousness is a phenomenon outside of all the other wonders of The Universe. If we are a part of it all, then we must consider that phenomena happen to us that are directly within the workings of the vast universe all around... phenomena for which real perceptions, and results, do exist.
