Some UFOs might be the observable effect (sort of a fringe interference) in our three dimensional space of a device operated from a higher order dimension. Because the object is not physically in our dimension, this theory accounts for the seeming impossible, yet observed aspects of silence traveling at high speed in atmosphere and instantaneous change of direction of movement. The question to test this theory is asked of the expert physicist studying the mathematics of the higher dimensional universe. It is, "What would be the nature of the three dimensional apperception of a multi-dimensional object seen from the three dimensions?"
The Interdimensional Hypothesis of unidentified flying objects and related events, championed by astrophysicist Jacques Vallée, attempts to explain the phenomena as regarding visitations from other universes (or dimensions) that coexist separately alongside our own. This hypothesis has been offered as an alternative to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, which proposes that unidentified flying objects are technological artifacts of other civilizations from distant worlds in our own universe. The interdimensional hypothesis proposes that these objects are a modern manifestation of elements, particularly mythological creatures, which have appeared throughout recorded history and possibly since earliest humans walked the earth. This hypothesis is generally considered to be a fringe view, even among UFO researchers.
According to this theory, the phenomenon manifests itself as a control mechanism, whose function appears to be to challenge the observer's accepted notions of reality, by appearing to be things that common sense would disregard as being impossible, and in our modern age, as technological objects which always seem to appear to be one step ahead of our own technological horizon.
By breaking the deepest taboos of society, the phenomenon thereby gradually reinforces a permanent change in the perception of that society, by the propagation of malicious memes and erroneous belief systems. Such a change appears to undermine society's belief in established authority, both governmental and scientific, which ridicules the phenomena and those that believe in it. The theory has not been widely accepted by either Ufologists or by mainstream science. Some argue it is pseudoscience, while others argue that it seeks to explain one mystery by invoking another.
- unexplained close encounters are far more numerous than required for any physical survey of the earth;
- the humanoid body structure of the alleged "aliens" is not likely to have originated on another planet and is not biologically adapted to space travel;
- the reported behavior in thousands of abduction reports contradicts the hypothesis of genetic or scientific experimentation on humans by an advanced race;
- the extension of the phenomenon throughout recorded human history demonstrates that UFOs are not a contemporary phenomenon; and
- the apparent ability of UFOs to manipulate space and time suggests radically different and richer alternatives."
I would have this final, speculative question: if they can disregard physics, that implies based on what has been said an ability to phase through conventional matter, which may explain the lack of sonic booms as observed.
If so, why has there never been a report of one rising from the ground or phasing through the moon? If they can disregard our physics at a whim, why would they maneuver around inconvenient things like trees? And why would they crash if they aren't really here?

Do you believe in the multi-verse? According to the multiverse theory I would say inter-dimensional travel is possible, in other words, craft from one universe can enter into another parallel universe. Maybe this is what is happening and what the author was trying to explain. I don't know. I am just guessing. How old is this article and where can I find it(you didn't paste any link)?

The biggest difficulty with trying to study UFOs from a multi-dimensional standpoint is that you and I are still stuck in our 3-D world. It's very hard for us to even conceptualize what might be going on in multiple dimensions, much less be able to translate it into something we can understand and study.
It's a puzzler, all right.

This begs the question of temporal difference; the chances of human beings discovering another compatible race WITHIN ITS OWN time reference are remote. Most likely (given of course the supposition of sentient alien civilizations) they either have not evolved yet suffiencintly to "our" level or have already evolved too far beyond (i.e. extinct).
