Davis, Of NASA's Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project, Discussed UFOs During Lecture By J. Maynard Gelinas Dr. Eric W. Davis, formerly a contract research physicist at NASA's Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project, which ran from 1996 through to 2002, gave a lecture in 2010 where he responded to the question of UFOs as they pertain to potential physics for traversable wormholes, warp drives, and anti-gravity. Sponsored by the Society for Scientific Exploration, the lecture was about a then recently published book, Frontiers of Propulsion Science, that discussed discoveries from the NASA project. After the lecture, during a question and answer session, one questioner asked whether, "...properties of UFOs had guided the thinking and research of that initiative." In responding to the question, Dr. Davis said, "Secretly yes and overtly no." In giving a reason for the secrecy, he stated that, "UFOs don't have credibility with mainstream academic researchers," and that, "...policy makers and decision-makers in charge of funding and programatics ... don't want to hear the topic of UFOs. So, for the purpose of doing this officially, [we didn't bring in UFOs], but we did consider it under the table." Dr. Davis was a technical consultant to the NASA project. He obtained a PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Arizona in 1991, was a cofounder of a joint NASA-JSC's Advanced Deep Space Transport Technology Assessment group studying advanced propulstion physics, and has authored several papers on zero- point vacuum physics for propulsion as well as the potential of traversable wormholes. Delving further into the subject, Dr. Davis noted that some had, "...looked at all the physical events and physical descriptions [of UFO data] provided by researchers such as [Jaques Vallee, George Hathaway, and the unnamed questioner]." He described two events that took place at the NIDS Utah Ranch of, "...one scientist and one researcher seeing a wormhole, what looked like a wormhole, with a creature crawling through." In the second event, "...the ranch owners had seen an opening in the sky in broad daylight with a triangular craft that came through it." Dr. Davis then compared these observations with known wormhole physics. "...that's an example of data that indicates a wormhole involved. Geometry tells you what a wormhole looks like when it intersects our space. It appears as [an intensely bright] point of light and then, as the intersection gets larger and larger, it opens up and you begin to see the hole." At that point, he noted, objects could traverse the wormhole. Discussing the matter of UFOs and warp drives, Dr. Davis stated that, "We haven't seen performances that adhere to the warp drive because ...basically it's just between stars and we don't see UFOs warping anywhere. We see them doing ninety-degree turns and rapid motions. They disappear and reappear. That is undetermined yet." He finally commented on the matter of anti-gravity, "...we have anti-gravity in Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. ... There are aspects of anti-gravity, the properties of negative vacuum energy, that would create a repulsive force that allows something to levitate up. And UFOs do exhibit that." In explaining how, he referred to Dr. Hal Puthoff's Polarized Vacuum Model where, "...instead of space-time [in traditional Relativity], you envision space-time as a polarized vacuum of a quantum zero point fluctuations. And, if you exert a field on that medium, the fluctuations are polarized, [and] that creates a space-time bending effect similar to warp drive and wormholes. We see that in aspects of what's predicted." The Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project was disbanded at NASA in 2002 due to funding shortfalls. Dr. Davis is now a research physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies-Austin, and is CEO of the company Warp Drive Metrics. He is currently scheduled to speak at the 2013 MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) symposium. --- Transcript from vide at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=3Dplayer_embedded&v=3DxDx1po_apZU Start: 37m30s ----- Audience Question: Is there any thought to using the known properties of UFOs as a guide to your thinking and research? Dr. Eric W. Davis: The answer is yes and no. Secretly, yes and overtly no. Because the mainstream academics don=92t like the topic of UFOs and they really don=92t have any credibility with them, especially with policy-makers and decision-makers in charge of funding and programatics. They don=92t want to hear the topics of UFOs. So, for the purpose of doing this officially [we didn=92t bring in UFOs], but we did consider it under the table. And yes, there is a subset of us who have looked at UFO data. And we=92ve looked at all the physical events and physical descriptions that have been provided by investigators from Jacques Vallee to yourself, and whatnot, and George Hathaway and so forth. And we=92ve been able to use that data as input to give us an idea, and that data does drive the concepts that we did derive later on [when we did] the book and went into the original NASA program. Like warp drives and wormholes. For example, at the NIDS Utah Ranch, where I used to work for Bob Bigelow for six years, we had the experience of one scientist and one investigator seeing a wormhole =96 what looked like a wormhole =96 with a creature crawling through, and then the ranch owners had seen an opening in the sky in broad daylight with a triangular craft that came through it. Well, that=92s an example of data that indicates there=92s a wormhole involved. I mean, geometry tells you what a wormhole looks like when it intersects our space. It appears as a very bright =96 intensely bright =96 point of light and then, as the intersection gets larger and larger, it opens up and you begin to see the hole. And, things would be going in and out of it. So, that=92s an example of two datasets that we verified at the NIDS Utah Ranch that match what I know as a physicist what a wormhole would do. Warp drives. We haven=92t seen UFOs do performances that adhere to the warp drive, because the warp drive=85 basically it=92s just between stars and we don=92t see UFOs warping anywhere or warping around. We see them doing ninety degree turns and rapid motions; they disappear and reappear. That is undetermined yet. I would think that wormhole is a big possibility still. I=92m trying to think of anything else. I would think that anti-gravity =96 we have anti-gravity in Einstein=92s General Theory of Relativity and I cover that in my chapter in the book; one of my three chapters. There are aspects of anti-gravity, the properties of negative vacuum energy that would create a repulsive force that allows something to levitate up. And UFOs do exhibit that. So there=92s Hal Putthoff=92s Polarized Vacuum Model. It=92s a different form of Relativity where instead of a space-time you envision space-time as a polarized vacuum of a quantum zero point fluctuations. And, if you exert a field on that medium, the fluctuations are polarized, that creates a space-time bending effect similar to warp drive and wormholes. So, we see that. We see that in aspects of what=92s predicted. ----- Listen to 'Strange Days...
