Let me preface my post with a bit of personal context: I do, in fact, understand the advanced mathematics of extra spatial dimensions, I was trained
as a physicist, and both UFOs and extradimensionality have been particular hobbies/focuses of my attention for most of my life.
I would say that the reported behavior of UFOs is consistent with the hypothesis that they are of extra-dimensional origin or, at least, utilize a
knowledge of extra-dimensional engineering.
This is NOT THE SAME AS PROOF. I'm sorry for the caps, but it's an extraordinarily common mental error made around here -- "consistent with" is
not the same as "proof of". You see, those behaviors are ALSO consistent with the hypothesis that the reporters are liars, crazy, or wrong.
Their behavior is _evidence_ that the extra-dimensional hypothesis is correct. EVIDENCE. Not proof.
Ok, with that said, I should say that I've long thought similar as being a likely explanation for much of UFO behavior. From FTL, to the
cloaking/disappearing tricks they pull, to the ridonkulous accelerations they perform, UFOs, if real, would necessitate a different relationship with
spacetime than we have. Another, more specific example of this sort of thing would be that I'm _pretty sure_ that "orbs" are often the mouths of
wormholes. They're a little too on-the-nose to be much else. A glowing sphere of differing colors? Check. Reports of liquification? Yup. The whole
"split into many parts/subsume into one ball" thing they often do? That is _exactly_ what it would look like from our perspective if someone were to
point a wormhole at our space and time and fast-forwarded and rewound it through time (think of a camera you could point at anywhere and anywhen that
the people at the end could see. Rewind and watch the same scene from three different angles, and the people on the ground would see "cameras"
appear, move to the same point, and merge into one).
And I think you made a misstatement about the LHC -- if they produce a particle that shoots off into a previously unknown spatial dimension, the event
would be far too LOW in energy, not too high. It's a fundamental feature of models like Lee Smolin's Quantum Loop Gravity, which explains the
bizarre weakness of gravity when compared to the other forces -- most of gravity shoots off into other dimensions, leaving the bits we see as the
So, in short, yes, extra spatial dimensions would be a great explanation for many of UFO's abilities. That does not mean that that is the correct
