Timika hadn’t understood much of what Vespasian—badgered and weary—had confessed about the artificial modification of codons and amino acids in the human genetic code. The doctor had tossed the terms out scornfully, knowing they wouldn’t mean much to the layman, all that stuff about CRISPR—Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats—and Cas9. That had been intended to obscure rather than explain.
But Barry had worried at him like a dog with a chew toy until Vespasian had used less opaque but rather more troubling terms like targeted genome editing. The Chinese were doing it, he said, as if that made everything okay. It was a huge leap forward, a monumental progression in molecular biology with all manner of applications, a field in which he had been an unsung pioneer . . . But what it all added up to, Timika was still unsure and so, Barry thought, was Vespasian. He had tweaked people’s genetic code, rewritten the building blocks of their humanity, but what he had achieved in the process or why he had done it, he couldn’t—or wouldn’t—say, and when Barry pressed the matter, Vespasian had merely become hungry for information. “What can you do?” he said. “What triggered the change?”"

I doubt if Lou is on the woo squad. He sounds like a nut and bolts guy.
As for his leadership. He is likely a deliberate plant to make TTSA the incompetent, uninformed, group it is.
If you get on board a ufo using anti grav, it will mess up your genes or even kill you. flesh and blood cannot get on board on any interdimensional craft. so if any et welcomes you to go for a ride, don't go

Does he by chance say if they then stuck them in a Lab, like a growing Garden of sorts after their intelligently designed genome modification?
And did this Garden have a Tree that could quench the peckish Vespasian who 'had merely become hungry for information'
The non woo side of team that just want the $ are probably realizing they played their cards too soon coming out without Podesta ending up in power, they now have to go out cap in hand. They wanted to make money outside the govt wage but instead have to cross their fingers that their Putin/The Trickster fear campaign pushes the right congressional IRAD budget buttons. They must know they wont ever get back in after this # show.
The pic actually comes from a computer arts site where you can purchase the computer modelling artwork of these UFO types.

Something about history...like it repeats itself, or something.
A linear experience, a cyclical existence.
1440, anyone recognize the voice lol
What if a group of men have designed a prototype for an electronic magnetic ion propulsion engine. How to get a patent
Parallel reality It shouldn't bother us so much, all of our major Religions have all told us the physical world is not the whole thing the there are other planes of existence, where do Angels exist? that would be another example of parallel reality....Another dimension, nothing too fanciful about that

...Before I arrived in Canneto, I was sure that the two men, Nino and Giuseppe, had simply gotten the better of everyone. But as I followed all the strange lines of inquiry, I got caught up in the side theories. I had never sat across from so many people who said they had seen something impossible, or spoken to a scientist who postulated in all seriousness something so incredible. I was taken in not by the Pezzinos’ story but by everything around it. The tapes, however, and the carabinieri were an excellent corrective, a reminder that the strange is often just human....
When the government fails to uncover or reveal the whole truth, a culture rejects science, an economy leaves people behind, and politician after politician succumbs to corruption, epic solutions are required.
But also, the facts are clear: They were caught on tape. Insurance: Pezzino’s line of work. The location of the fires: inside homes and confined to the area where the Pezzinos and their relatives lived. The fires stopped when the area was under investigation. The human desire for money, for fame. A young man with nowhere to go. The experience of the fires was so great that the resolution needs to be, too. Then there’s a void where everything people want to believe, every anxiety and every hope, rushes in. The stories, the pieces you can control, replace what actually happened.
“Nowhere has truth so short a life as in Sicily,” wrote Lampedusa in The Leopard. “A fact has scarcely happened five minutes before its genuine kernel has vanished, been camouflaged, embellished, disfigured, squashed, annihilated by imagination and self-interest; shame, fear, generosity, malice, opportunism, charity, all the passions, good as well as evil, fling themselves onto the fact and tear it to pieces; very soon it has vanished altogether.… The truth no longer existed.” ...
