What? Your comment makes no sense to me.

As far as 'advanced' and 'alien', perhaps you're being too constrained in just what those terms can mean?

Think in terms of 'paradigm shift', as in data processing with pencil and paper and then the advent of computers. Prior to the invention of the microprocessor and computers we could not comprehend comments made about technology that is (now) only 200-300 years in the future.

And that's the future of a -known- terrestrial species, not a completely alien one.

We are several paradigm shifts away from 'getting into space', and several more away from being able to travel throughout the solar system without the use of gravity assist and chemical or ionic rockets. We're not even close to being space faring.

About the closest we can come to 'understanding' advanced tech is that we can make a pretty good assumption that aliens would need to use computers to assist them.

But if you remember back to Dune they were able to fold space using pure biologics.

One one hand you seem to want to solve things by adding layers of complexity, then on the other, you are greatly underestimating just what 'alien' might mean.

This is quoted from the OP of another new thread on this site,sound familiar?

1) While in Woodstock, New York, (1996) I witnessed A large Black mass that had small lights all throughout it, as it moved over myself and a friend towards the horizon. We had snuck out to a party, (I was sober) and were hanging out in a field. It was two to three football fields in length, and dead quiet. We were so scared we went home. Later, I had a real feeling of loss, like I should have not been scared and missed a real opportunity.

Um............many football fields long(100's of yards),exactly what I said.

Hmmm...Actually I think the Human Race is FAR MORE ADVANCED than
the general public is led to believe.......

The mark of an advanced civilization:

1) Be ABLE TO OBSERVE atomic scale phenomenon:

Sub-100 nm electronic devices and quantum-effects research using X-ray nanolithography

2) Understand that Micro-cosmic and Macro-cosmic properties and effects
are inherently inter-related, and like a fractal equation, small inputs
or miniscule differences in initial inputs have large consequences
and varying outcomes. (i.e. Butterfly Effect)

Quantum Effects Writ Large: Evidence Points To Quantum Nature Of Large-scale Effects

5-axis CNC machines:

Electron Beam 3D printing of Metal Parts:

Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy

Making REALLY BIG things:

4) Form the theoretical basis of superluminal or supra-modal
transportation and power technologies:

Massively Parallel Multi-state Boolean Logic Trees and
Operations of an Inference Engine using Proprietary "ArrayVision"
Technology For Multiple Moving Target Object Recognition
at High Video Frame Rates.
by Henry A. Eckstein, Vancouver, Canada (2008) (Classified)

Public Abstract:
Current target recognition algorithms have focused upon pixel-oriented
templates that have a low-incidence of recognition upon distortion within
3D spaces. The proprietary "ArrayVision" technology uses vector splines
that are compared against a spline-template database that contains
common distortions so that individual portions of a general object such
as a tree, ground vehicle, aerial vehicle, terrain feature, etc. can be
assigned a weighted Most-Likely-Match to Least-Likely-Match Boolean
value that is then sorted and grouped into logic trees for further pattern
matching against specific object templates such as a specific model or
type of car, plane or terrain feature at frame rates in excess of 1000 fps.

Hmmmmm....wonder what that's all about -

Quote from Badge:

You've made some conjecture, but I don't see where you've backed it up.
It's all too easy to say we're more advanced than we are, but I see no proof of this.

perhaps this small sprinkling of R&D will change your mind
on our current abilities...

Haha,wow I am going to have to read through that again!(Another GREAT post[starred])I don't think 'Badge' even thinks we are right now working on extremely advanced beyond sci-fi technologies!Not to mention the governments official NASA 'FTL' propulsion research department you linked to.It's a shame really,cause a lot of people think the same way as 'Badge'-that being that we don't even take those'sci-fi' concepts for real...............but guess what,we sure do.

Officially, I work in a Video Production environment In
Vancouver, BC, Canada as a Video systems specialist,
editor, cameraman, 3D & Multimedia Development expert,
and technical systems consultant...

My "unofficial" duties consist of researching and developing
Massively Parallel, Grid-Centric processing systems
that distribute high-performance vision & object recognition algorithms
over local and wide area network to process digital camera recordings
in real-time at speeds in excess of 1000 fps within encrypted
civilian and military-oriented environments.


However, my 20+ years of military-strength encryption systems design,
video codecs design, hardware & driver development experience
and forensic utility software coding has enabled my hard-won expertise
(earned through the school of hard knocks and many mistakes!)
to spill over into my official duties to such an extent that I am now
considered a "subject matter expert" consulting to mostly commercial

I have a few concurrent personal and corporate projects that delve into
the areas of UAV development and multi-processing video supercomputer
design & development for purposes both secretive and public.

Almost ALL of my expertise is self-taught with the relevant consult
of area specific subject matter experts adding to my learnings,
but it's my love of gadgetry, computers and things that fly
that propel me into areas that are usually reserved for
PhD's and Military Environments.

Some of my other comments regarding political & military doctrine
and esoteric protocol are based upon personal experience
and from anecdotes from those in places high and far away.
So NO, I AM NOT A SPY, but sometimes i've had to act like one!

And my rates are $350/hr CAN for technical systems consulting and review.
$500/hr for UAV platform development and $1000/hr for video
supercomputer design and development of board-level hardware
and driver & video processing software! Expenses & Taxes are Extra!

"Non-disclosure" contracts are not actually failsafe. I work with the elderly and some years ago cared for a person who had had the very highest security classification in the U.S. Twenty two levels above the President (and people actually think George Bush is in charge). This person's main field of work had been in designing missiles, however once he was sent for an interview to back engineer a downed U.F.O. in Canada. He was disappointed not to be chosen for the job and stated that his biggest disappointment in life was not to have ever sighted a U.F.O.

I've been in the missle silo owned by Ed Dames--before he bought it. 10 or 11 stories straight down. Metal ladders, no lights, no elevator. Built in the 50's? Of course this is New Mexico. Lots of strange stuff underground I would bet.

Let me start off by apologizing for replying anonymously; most contributors post under their own usernames, but I come here so rarely that I won't bother getting a username for the time being.

We have an IDEA of what aliens (if such creatures actually exist) and their craft are made of; however these are nothing more than ideas. We have no tangible knowledge of alien biology, technology or culture. We have witness accounts and alledged video footage of aliens being dissected.

To return to the 17th-century scholar, he would be able to study human anatomy by dissecting cadavers, which would be easily available. Let us now imagine that, instead of a laptop, John Travolta lands his vintage Qantas 707 in a field just outside the town in which the scholar lives. John, being the excellent communicator that he is, would explain to the scholar the technical details of the 707 and give the scholar a tour of the flight deck as well as a walk-around the aircraft. He would open up the jets, the cargo hold and even treat the scholar to a nice refreshing cocktail in the galley. However, John Travolta would have to overcome the scholar's initial fears, explain aerodynamics, manufacturing technology, material science, communication technology, fueling and so much else. This is assuming that John has all the necessary knowledge and is able to explain it in sufficient detail. If the 707 were piloted by a trained astronaut who came with all the necessary teaching documentation on all the above subjects, there would still be the issue of context. Everything would be written assuming the reader has a basic knowledge of the premises of modern society and technology. Even basic concepts, such as electrical current would be unknown to the scholar. There would have to be a very, very steep learning curve - and a lot of time.

To return to the situation with the aliens, the premises of alien society would be much more foreign to us. There would be no common language, and even if there were, is it probable that aliens would come with a whole library for us to learn how to build and operate one of their craft? We also have to remember that what we see, hear and experience in general is basically projected on our cultural, technological, social and human developmental premises. In essence, we see what we are able to see and understand it to the best of our capacity as 21st-century humans. The very fact that we assume alien spacecraft to be constructed of materials and piloted by alien crews from their corner of the universe to ours in itself reveals our limitations.

Dune is excellent in the way it departs from the conventional spaceship-through-space concept. If anything, it would be more likely that the spacecraft we see are put their for us to see and talk about in order for us to think and believe what we are expected to think and believe, be it by aliens or by members of our own race.

Our exploration of space will really take off once we learn to live with each other in peace and release ourselves from the physical restrictions of our human existence.

Stargate:Wow,sounds like you know some things.When you said the 'grid',did you mean the new 2nd generation internet that CERN will be using?

By Grid-Processing, I mean combining the computer horsepower of all
local area networked computers and any authorized computers located
on the CURRENT outside Internet to form Virtual Supercomputers that
will take a slice of any large data set and process it and return results
to authorized master computer systems and then continue to get other
slices for processing until ALL portions have been completed.

Definition of Grid and Mesh Computing and Distributed Storage:

For example as part of a current project:

Each single computer on the 25+ computers we have in our internal
network will Object Recognize and DSP (Digital Signal Process)
a series of 1024 by 1024 by 1024 pixel by 3000 frame video stream
blocks that are a small portion of a larger 3D colour bitmap
video stream that is over 20 BILLION by 20 BILLION by 20 BILLION
64-bit RGBA pixels by 3000 frames in size. Specific objects of desired
sizes, shapes, colours and movement speeds will be searched for
and tagged for further Grid-based processing. Basically we are
searching through a 3D video object of immense size.

This monster 3D bitmap video is stored using our proprietary
768-bit key-length Triple-AES (Advanced Encryption Standard)
encrypted virtual hard drives that are spanned on hundreds
of COTS (Common off the shelf) computer disks located
across our internal network and over the wide-area Internet.

All communications are highly encrypted using our own Virtual Encrypted
Communications Tunnelling Protocol (VECTP) (TM) that allows
people to have virtual hard disks that are Attobytes in size
(in my case Largest Virtual Volume Size = ( (2^2048) x 64 kilobyte Blocks )

We have network performance measurement and automatic network
traffic shaping to ensure that large data sets can efficiently use all
available computing horsepower wherever it is on this planet
(and OFF IT TOO!) We have created a Virtual IP address space
that is a completely re-rewritten superset of the TCP/IP protocols
that is 2048 bits in size address space to ensure that even
nano & molecular scale computing devices can be assigned
an individual IP address and form Computing Meshes or Grids
of any size or network topology that work on both a hardwired
basis and wireless communications in a highly secured
and encrypted manner.

We have optimized the network for time-constrained 2D and 3D
video & audio stream processing and designed it for EASE-OF-USE
by the average user.

We call it Virtual Supercomputing for the Rest of Us!
And since I am a programmer by trade, I have made a point & click
and drag & drop development & user-interface builder environment
that has BUILT-IN audio & video DSP algorithms, advanced
playback & recording codecs, advanced number crunching,
advanced text search, advanced boolean-state decision tree analysis,
and very advanced database creation, tagging, logging & maintenance
for Attobyte-sized databases on a software infrastructure that's as easy
as using a Macintosh computer. i.e. 10 year olds can use our system!

So it's a BIG system project and I am going to be turning the keys
on the thing tonight and tomorrow the official beta-test begins....YEAH!!!!!

Over 8 years of blood sweat and tears and near destitution
for a chance to change the world! - I need a Vacation!

My impression was the mid-sixties. The interview for the job was in the U.S., New York seems to ring a bell.
You may also be interested to know that he also told of projects he worked on with Soviet scientists sent from the USSR during the so-called Cold War. He named names, but they meant nothing to me.

My u2u was rejected as I haven't submitted the requisite number of posts so I'll give you a short reply here. I know no more than the crash had occurred in Canada. The joint projects were not elaborated on, but I guess it was to do with missile technology. I am unable to recall the Soviet names. I think Edward Teller may have had some association. Director or something similar.

The same force controlled both sides during the Cold War and WW2 and more.I had a relative by the name of Sir Marc Oliphant who was working at his lab in Cambridge, just prior to joining the Manhattan Project, when he had a device for the upcoming project pilfered from his lab by Lord Victor Rothschild during a "friendly" visit. This device was reverse engineered overnight and the results handed onto the Soviets. The following day Rothschild returned it admonishing Marc for his lax security! Rothschild controlled British Intelligence for decades.

In general, people have little conception of the problems involved in reverse-engineering a device or a propulsion system, and that's just for a terrestrial design.

For anything that's even mildly advanced and is from a non-terrestrial source, to be of value we'd need a lot more than the final device.

Even technology merely 10e4 years in advance of ours might be nearly impossible to understand, let alone disassemble safely and engineer.

Having the final device or technology or a crashed (even if still functional) propulsion system is only marginally helpful in a majority of cases. For instance what good would a microchip do if we hadn't already mastered the electromagnetic energy spectrum? The majority of the time just trying to disassemble a technology will destroy it, and highly advanced technology (such as a nuclear reactor) might not be abe to be disassembled by a more primitive species.

What's more important to have and understand are the Production Methods, not the final device.

Yes! Finally, somebody who really understands actual reality of engineering.

Let's cut down to the crux of the issue: "warp drive".

Warp drive, in physics, means "additional source terms in Einstein equations not described by the current stress-energy tensor with big-G coupling."

So far, in open physics world, we have absolutely 0.0% evidence for this; I wish it were not so. But GR has been validated in extreme circumstances now (pulsar gravitational radiation) and soon results from Gravity-Probe B will be out. Eotovos-type experiments (equivalence principle tests with varying nuclear characteristics) all were null. GR stands tall, all alternatives have fallen. We see gravitational lensing of galaxies, all described fine by GR. Where's the other term? With nuclear energy, we at least had the clear prior anomaly of radioactivity.

Now if such a thing were true, how much effort and brains would it take to get some engineering utility out of it? It would be tremendous. Look at the size of the Manhattan project---a very large fraction of the free world's best scientists were on it. Look at the infrastructure necessary to develop the all the materials and ancillary efforts. I don't see anything that big for warp drive.

We'd really need fully open results---and then we might make progress, over 20 years.

The second issue is "power source". Where does the energy to create this exotic source term and propulsion come from? What is dissipated? What about thermodynamics? Even solving the "warp drive" is very far away from something that can fly, as opposed to an immense laboratory instrument which can create a strange condition of matter for a microsecond.

However, even table-top gravity control could be quite useful for other reason: high frequency (e.g. MHz-GHz) gravitational waves. If the coupling turned out to be easy enough, we could have 'gravity-radio' which we could beam straight through the center of the Earth.

The analogy of a 17th century scientist receiving a 21st century laptop
is an unfair one to make because if we do have alien craft to take apart,
we 21st century people have at least an UNDERSTANDING of the concepts
of time, space, field effects, quantum mechanics, nano-technologies,
multi-dimensional physics, etc.

We can at least conceive and wrap ourselves around the fact that our
universe is probably multi-dimensional in nature and that there are high
probabilities of the existence on multi-force/Zero Point Energy propulsion
physics and technologies that are Faster Than Light.

A 17th century person has NO CONCEPT AT ALL of any of this!

Which 17th century person exactly?

Let's take the smartest one of all: Isaac Newton.

He would have plenty to learn, but there is no doubt whatsoever that Sir Isaac would quickly be able to function at the very highest levels of physics within 3-4 years.

Newton was already then speculating about hidden properties of matter (most things were unknown then unlike today) with multiple theories which then would have been very exotic. Many were wrong, but not for stupid reasons---but for lack of experimental results. Indeed, without some of the preconceptions from 19th century science, he might be able to pick up 20th-21st century science even faster.

However, there is in truth a fundamental difference between 17th century and today.

Then, people could not explain the overwhelming majority of physical observations that they come across in everyday life. Now, scientists can---they are mostly right as opposed to mostly wrong. People have successfully made inferences and predictions about quite remote and extreme things---physics about the centers of galaxies for example---based on current knowledge of physics and properties of matter.

I have to agree with some of the people on here....even if we found something that had the technology to travel the universe, I am going to bet that we would have absolutely no clue how to do anything to fix it, and would more than likely destroy it trying to figure it out....if they even could recognize what they had.

What makes everyone think that a "UFO" would even look like anything that we can comprehend? We are so far away from that technology, it would not be like giving Newton a laptop, it would be like giving a caveman the controls to the new particle accelerator at CERN, and expect him to be able to analyze the data, take it apart, and build a new one, without anyones help.

You can say that we may understand the concepts of space time and multiple dimensions, and yadda yadda, but the truth is, we dont know jack.

Lets put it like this....I am going to assume that some of us are aware of nuclear power and does that mean that you would be able to build your own reactor?

This series should provide some insight into the theory of traversing the universe. Its based on observance of how the galaxies are formed. Harnessing this theory, UFOs are probably able to move many times the speed of light.

my psychology lecturer at university told me this effect is called the 'boggle factor'. Most people can accept only so much before they reject it as bogus, for everyone who reads this site please keep posting.

It's always about America though, wonder what the other countries have stashed away? I was once told the UK had one that crashed in the Welsh mountains and they spent some of the Trident budget on it..

I had 2 strong thoughts as I read the OP's post.

1)The description of the shrink space in front, expand behind is word for word from a tv show on discovery channel called "the technology of star trek.

2) The idea of inside being smaller than outside is straight from Dr Who tv show.

Not saying anything else, but those 2 things are proveable facts.
