Subject: Dr. Eric W. Davis' UFO Statements @ SSE Lecture


Dr. Eric W. 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.

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.
