(I love the idea of this forum by the way, kudos to ATS for maintaining it)
Lisa Randall has come up with the idea of infinite dimensionality - an idea I quite like and have been playing around with for awhile now, I usually
think of it as the n-dimensional.
Anyways, Its seems rather obvious to speculate that the stereotypical grays and ensemble cast hail from what they are calling nowadays Branes.
Branes are literally higher dimensional spaces and are taken pretty seriously by String theory (M(embrane?)-theory). Up till now String theory
indicated that extra dimensions should be all curled up so small that no one sees them. Randall has changed this view by opening out her theory to an
infinite space. So Branes can be more than 3 dimensional, they can be 5, 7 or whatever and more importantly, not all curled up and tiny. So this is
the first serious physical theory that grounds an understanding of extra-dimensional spaces (Wheelers Many Worlds stuff is a bit different).
So, say the aliens live in a Brane that is connected to ours but has say only 1 extra dimension - being highly technological they discover a way to
collapse down 1 dimension and become visible to us. They could actually then simultaneously inhabit a higher dimensional earth - this could account
for certain strange reports by abductees and others that they "came throught the window", as being partially in a higher brane they would have an
extra dimension to move around in. This also could account for time anomolies , as they would not be totally subject to the linear progression of
time, again because they could go around it in their additional dimension. In the Allagash Abductions, some of the witnesses had paranormal type
happenings in their houses since childhood, odd clickings and a feeling of being watched - this could be explained by a slightly out of phase viewing
device or observer. This theory also has the advantage of explaining the time travel hypothesis - they could perhaps be from what to us would be the
future, but to them it would probably be more of a simultaneous kind of event - it might be accessible to them, to the point where a linear kind of
timelime may be a strange concept from "their" point of view. Genetic experimention and the hybrids thing could be an attempt to create beings that
could straddle both Branes permanently, it is doubtful aliens could exist long here or vice versa - it would be just plain uncomfortable. Naturally
all of these events historically would be viewed either religously or supernaturally. Now here's the really crazy part, what if the so called
afterlife or astral plane or Bardo or Dreamtime or whatever
you want to call it IS this closeby Brane? Perhaps we are a pupal version of consciousness in an much grander dimensional evolutionary scheme? So the
question is not only is their life on other planets, not only is their life on other Branes, but could their be ecological interconnections between
life on different Branes? This has the advantage of explaining the weird things the aliens are supposed to say, such as, "you are ours" and "we do
have the right" (which I have seen from many reports) when some poor victim inevitably protests.
The interdimensional idea is not new, but that it has a serious (speculative) grounding within advanced physics certainly is.
