Tectonic Strain Theory (TST) is gaining traction. It states that most UFO phenomena (not due to frank misobservation) are natural events, generated by
stresses and strains within the earth's crust. Of course, there are strengths and weaknesses of this theory. I believe that it will get stronger over
time. There have been things here and there that have buffed the theory. For example,
Earthquake Discovery Boosts Persinger’s Tectonic Strain Theory of UFOs and the Paranormal
Strange lights in sky aren't UFOs; they're 'earthquake
lights,' scientists reveal
And that's not all. "Since 1979, approximately 25 technical articles have been published that support the validity of the TST as an explanation for
most reports within UFO or ALP data bases from a number of different places."
So, it looks like a showdown might be coming between TST and ET.
Suppose there is a showdown, and TST wins. ET is run out of town. Would that mean the skeptics win?
Suppose on the other hand that ET wins. Would ufology win?
The champion of TST is Michael Persinger, a cognitive neuroscience researcher and university professor with over 200 peer-reviewed publications. If
TST wins and ET loses, skeptics will have him to thank for their gloating rights. That is, until, they are forced to realize that their champion has
also shown telepathy to be real. You might not realize it now, but his validation of parapsychology will someday pull the rug out from under skeptics
and rejuvenate not only parapsychology but ufology as well. The irony will be delicious.
The age of ET is gone. Times are changing so fast these days, that a mythology can hardly develop and keep up. These aren't your grandpa's little
green men from Mars anymore. It's time for them to take a new costume for a new age, as they have done time and time again. An age in which we begin
to reach our psychic potential thanks to a rejuvenated ufology and parapsychology.
