Hate to break it to you but your concept isn't unique, I have it posted in my The Resistance thread somewhere and it's a mainstay concept for my
Grey Vampire Sci Fi Animated feature i'm working on...
and I didn't get it original myself, I took it from some really old decipherings of the Book of Enoch
The concept is that the Greys essentially were Angels
and being an earlier form of evolution, Reptillian, Insectoid or what have you G-d made them soulless to enable them to "fly through the heavens"
at some point, Lucifer discovers that g-ds plan for the Universe is that it will fall in upon itself and start over again, their duty was to help his
creations of life (us) and go world to world preparing places for them to live.
But when they discovered that we had Souls and were "g-ds favorite" i.e. they were immortal but the Universe ends so they aren't and we get to go
to Heaven not "the heavens" and are the ones who actually live forever
They rebelled against g-d and seek to thwart creation and subvert man to join their cause, undo creation, stop the universe from falling back in on
itself in 15 some odd billion years give or take some Billions
This is their hatred of mankind and the attempts to get our leaders to trade our lives for their brand of immortality
and I made it a main premise of a fictional storyline in which Vampires in our time seek to escape Earth before the rest of the Greys get here...
see my Avatar... I made that!
and what I am doing in the story is getting very xfiley and trying to make it as plausable as possible... (final animation will be alot less comic)
so I used genuine religion and theory on the Greys as Watchers from the book of Enoch...
In fact there are 3 parts to the story, it's a trilogy the first goes back to the antedeluvian where I place Enoch as a human Geneticist working with
another group of aliens that "boosted him" among others to theat 900 year lifespan to work directly with them and the Greys show up and destroy this
other group of aliens which leads to Enoch Engineering the first Human/Vampires to defend us by combining the Dna of yet another alien spieces the
But i'm going off on my own tangent...
Your theory has been around since the 40's in modern form and for alot longer than that in other forms
and with that said Kudos... for figuring it out on your own, because I use it ,Because it's the theory I am most inclined to believe
The one thing no one takes into account in faster than light travel or hyperspace travel is...
The soul and if you uproot the body from it's ties to the next dimension how do you do that and not snap the cord so to speak?
I don't believe a Human, Soul intact can travel Faster than light speed without loosing it...
and these things therefore are soulless because they can travel faster than light and must have to be to do so.
