Michael Masters Prof. Anthropology at Montana Tech University: Are UFOs Piloted by FUTURE Humans?

From a scientific perspective, a new book looks at this intriguing possibility and sees it as the most likely one.

For decades, Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have captured the attention of thousands of people around the world. Many have already reported sightings, contacts and even abductions of these mysterious “flying saucers”. But whether these experiences are reality or simple fantasies, the truth is that the so-called “UFO phenomenon” has become a public issue and on which everyone, or almost everyone, has spoken at some point. Who else can say they’ve never debated with family or friends about the possible existence of extraterrestrials?

Even Science, always pragmatic and incredulous, is lately leaving the door open for the existence of other intelligent civilizations. The discovery of thousands of planets around other stars and the basic ingredients of life even in the most remote corners of the Universe have led scientists to seriously consider the possibility that we are not so alone in the dark after all, in the immensity of the Cosmos.

A Universe With Billions of Worlds

Which of course doesn’t mean they accept the fact that aliens are continually visiting us. It is one thing to admit that in a Universe with billions of planets it is absurd to think that only one is inhabited and quite another to believe that “they” are already among us.

At the beginning of the last decade of the 50’s, the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi summarized the issue in a single question. If life is as likely as it appears to have taken root on other planets and even evolved intelligence on some of them where is it all? Why can’t we see anyone?

Since then, many have provided all sorts of solutions to the so-called “Fermi paradox”: intelligences that arose on oceanic worlds under thick layers of ice (as is the case on Enceladus or Europa in our Solar System) and without access to the stars; extreme difficulty in such a vast Universe to coincide in the same region of space and at the same time with other civilizations; highly advanced species that avoid contact so as not to “contaminate” our development…

What If Humans Are The Pilots Of UFOs?

And now in an exciting new book by Michael Masters, professor of anthropology at Montana Tech University, an exciting new possibility emerges: Could UFOs be flown by humans from the distant future? Could it be that these strange creatures that many say they have almost always encountered with humanoid forms are actually our distant descendants returning from the future to study their own evolutionary past?

The idea, of course, is not new, but in his book Masters he gives a “different view” of this possibility, offering an interesting and thought-provoking perspective. For example, Masters is convinced that given the rapid pace of advances in science and technology, it is plausible that future humans would be able to develop the machinery needed to travel through time. The purpose of the book, the author states, is not to convince anyone, but to stimulate a new discussion between believers and skeptics.

For this and as Masters assured: I decided to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to try to understand the rarities of this phenomenon. Our job as scientists is to ask big questions and try to find answers to unknown questions. Something is going on here and we should have a conversation about it. And we must be at the forefront when it comes to figuring out what it is.”

The Simplest Explanation

For the researcher, the possibility that the “visitors” are ourselves is by far the most plausible. “We know we’re here. We know humans exist. We know we’ve had a long evolutionary history on this planet. And we know our technology will be more advanced in the future. I think the simplest explanation is that it’s us. I’m just trying to offer what is probably the most parsimonious explanation.”

The book then aims to unite well-known aspects of our own evolutionary history with as yet unproven or unknown ones like UFOs and aliens.

Tourists and Scientists of the Future

As an anthropologist Masters has worked in numerous archaeological sites in Africa, Europe and the United States and guarantees that if he had had the opportunity to travel back in time to better understand our ancestors, he would have done so without hesitation. “In addition, the alleged abduction reports are mostly scientific in nature. It could be about future anthropologists, historians or linguists, who travel to the past to obtain information in a way that today and without the necessary technology we cannot access.

But there can also be a tourist component. “Without a doubt,” continues Masters, “in the future there will be people who will pay a lot of money for the opportunity to travel back in time and witness their favorite period of history.”

Of course Masters’ approach to his research is “an evolving project”. In fact, important pieces of the puzzle are still missing. For example, we still don’t understand exactly what time is, and we still haven’t managed to combine general relativity that explains the world at the macroscopic level with quantum mechanics that explains it in the realm of subatomic particles. .

Many researchers actually believe that time travel will never be possible. Stepen Hawking himself dedicated one of his famous lapidary sentences to the subject: “The best proof”, Hawking once said, “that time travel is impossible is that we are not invaded by a legion of tourists from the future”. But what if we really were?

“I’m just trying,” says Masters, “to come up with the best possible model based on current scientific knowledge. Hopefully over time we can continue to build it.”

The reactions did not take long and the practically newly published book has already begun to receive all kinds of criticism, both in favor and against. One more element as the author intended to feed the debate.
