My objection Ed, is that you have created a scenario more suited
for a Sci-fi channel Saturday night movie, than what the current
evidence suggests. All we know for sure is that a technology
currently unreached by man is being displayed. You take this and
leap into territory many will not venture.

You can't poke holes in a ghost, Ed. Flesh out a true theory
on logic and I might support it.

I'll give you that Ed, it does take intelligence to be
imaginative. What you seem to be lacking is logic.
