Faster-than-light travel? Having just seen a science documentary in which a couple of heavy-duty physicists explain how it may be possible, circumventing rather than contradicting Einstein. Rapidly rotating mass warping space in its vicinity and producing gravity waves that could envelope a star ship and whup it along rather briskly, even FTL (Star Trek anyone?). The way it was explained, the physics is there, but the engineering problems are a bitch! Remains to be seen.

Multiple universes. Just reading a book by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku in which he says that it's very likely. Parallel Worlds : A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos. Mind boggling. A function of string theory. Multiple universes, parallel universes, multiple (up to eleven) dimensions. Very likely.

Gotta think some more about a lot of the others. Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

I dunno, but one thing I don't believe is that bandwidth is so frigging precious that we need to worry about wasting a bit of it if people feel inclined toward starting separate threads on some of the various subjects mentioned.

What happened? Did all the bandwidth wells in Nebraska suddenly run dry? Or did the bandwidth mines in North Dakota get mined out? Do we need to start a campaign to have bandwidth declared an endangered species so people who waste it can be arrested? Should we be sporting bumper stickers that say "Fuck the Whales! Save the Bandwidth!"

I hear you, Rustic Rebel.

More power to those folks who bring up for serious, considerate discussion such non-traditional metaphysical subjects as telepathy, precognition, reincarnation, karma, and astral projection.

Every one has to choose which subjects they will talk about here, and which they won't. For the most part, I choose not to converse about those subjects here.

I figure I have other subjects to talk about with 'Catters and Guests.

From: Don Firth
Date: 12 Mar 06 - 02:53 PM

In this immense universe, there are untold billions of galaxies, each containing billions of stars, most of which are "main sequence" stars like the sun. What we now know about the formation of stars indicates that a main sequence star like our sun without a planetary system would be unusual indeed. Given that there would most likely be a planet or two orbiting in the "temperate zone" around most of these stars (where water would be in a liquid state), and given what we know about evolution (sorry, creationists), that if life can evolve, it will evolve, statistics alone indicate that there must be an immense number of planets in this galaxy, not to mention all the other galaxies, upon which life of one sort or another exists. Life and evolution being what they are, some species on these life-bearing planets may very well develop intelligence. Some of these species may develop along scientific/technological lines. If they don't kill themselves off in wars (the jury is still out on this this planet), some of them may develop long-range space travel and go in search other intelligent life. And it is conceivable that some of these alien civilizations may have visited, are currently visiting and observing, or will sometime in the future visit this planet.

The contention of many who have seen, or believe they have seen, Unidentified Flying Objects is that UFOs are space ships from one or several of these alien civilizations visiting our planet. This could very well be true. Although I must admit to strong skepticism, given that there is not just the possibility, but the likelihood that civilizations exist on other planets, I find I cannot rationally rule it out.

But it is a gross leap of logic to automatically assume that an Unidentified Flying Object is an alien space ship. The operational word here is "unidentified."

I have seen UFOs. I have seen many UFOs.

Skeptics, bear with me now.

At night, I often see lights in the sky, but I cannot identify exactly what the Flying Object bearing those lights is. But I use my ears as well as my eyes and I make some assumptions. Since the Interstate 5 freeway is not too far from where I live, I can usually hear that the Object as quite probably a traffic helicopter. At least I assume that's what it is. Also, one of the flight-paths to the Seattle-Tacoma International airport passes high over the building in which I live. When lights pass high over the neighborhood and I hear what sounds like a multi-engine jetliner, I also assume that that is what it is. At dusk one evening a few years ago I saw an Object bearing lights following a curved path coming in from the west and turning south onto the Sea-Tac flight path. Other than the lights, I saw it at an odd angle and only in silhouette. It occured to me at the time that what I saw looked for all the world like the Klingon cruiser that Kirk and crew had commandeered and used in Star Trek: The Voyage Home. But since I couldn't see it that clearly and it sounded like a multi-jet airliner, I made a leap of logic and assumed that was what it actually was. Perhaps I jumped to a hasty conclusion. Perhaps I lacked imagination.

[I do sincerely believe, however, that perhaps the government of the state of Texas, and definitely Washington, D. C., have been taken over by surgically altered Ferengi!]

Many flying objects I have seen, I can identify. I know a robin when I see one. And with a park nearby, there a crows everywhere. I spotted what I know to be a Brewer's blackbird out in the Green Lake area, and I once actually saw an American bald eagle circling over downtown Seattle. A bird-watcher friend of mine told me that there is a pair of bald eagles who nest in Discovery Park, and although they usually dine on fish, occasionally they like a change of diet and go downtown to snack on the urban pigeon population.

Can you imagine how startling and amazing it would be to be sitting near the Henry Moore sculpture (sometimes refered to by local wags as "dinosaur droppings") in the open area across Fourth Avenue from the new Seattle Public Library on a warm day, eating your lunch, when a great white-headed raptor swoops in, grabs one of the ubiquitous gray pigeons bobbing about on the sidewalk a few feet from you, and streaks off into the sky with the unfortunate pigeon in its mighty talons?

But I am no ornithologist. I can identify most common species, but as a bird-watcher, I'd make a better plumber. Hence, I see Unidentified Flying Objects every day.

But it is possible that someday when I am moseying through the aforementioned nearby park, a disk-shaped space ship may land near me, and an alien who loves artistic singing may step out, wave its tentacles at me, and say, "Take me to your lieder."

Always endeavoring to be a good host, I will, of course, comply.

Don Firth

(Another slow day at the skunk works.)

Well looking at the original post, there are three groups of things in there.

1. Various things that simply cannot be proved or disproved, at least within any concievable science or technology; ie death schools for the soul.

2. Simply impossible things. The Chimpanzee throat does not it allow to speak, let alone seven languages. A hollow earth just does not work etc etc.

3. Things born out of paranoia. Yes, there could be a flying saucer based on alien technology flying out of the Nevada desert. But it all seems rather unlikley, and given just how bad the Goverment is at keeping stuff secret, how come they suddenly got good for this?


In short, I don't believe in any of them. Some of them may be true, but I don't feel the need to believe in them. I believe in love, but that's a different matter....

ahem....(if you see my name, and your first reaction is "uh-oh", you'd best skip this...☺)


*begin semi-relevant practical rumination*

Consider the phrase "believe in". Implicit in the very construction is that you 'could' not believe in. That is, the type or degree of proof involved is not absolute, and the interpretation of supporting data and evidence is usually highly subjective.

*IF* such is the case, I usually avoid even using the words 'believe' or 'not believe' for my opinion. I prefer to refer to it all in terms of what I'd be willing to act on, bet on, 'trust' as a pretty reliable working model...etc. (Evolution might be a case in point...the evidence for it keeps getting stronger and the underlying model of 'how' it works becomes more complex AND coherent every day.)

Flamenco Ted, however, has shown me nothing that would make me accept purported messages from the fairies in his garden..☺

In between are some notions that sure are 'interesting', and worth examining....(UFOs and aliens, for example).....to me 'belief', is relevant only to the idea that I sure 'believe' that other life forms are obviously possible, but mathematically likely. This does NOT cause me to 'believe' that they come here....that remains 'interesting' and worth examining.

It's all in the personal attitude and proclivity to need to believe one way or the other.


*end semi-relevant practical rumination*


(oh...and of course, I DON'T believe that "for every drop of rain that falls, someone gets wet" TRILLIONS of rain drops fall on uninhabited areas every day... ipse faxit- quo demonstrandum est - Nil sine, numine - Post hoc, ergo propter hoc - illegimati non carborundum - Carpe Diem, and MAGISTER MUNDI SUM!)
