Scientist: Aliens May Harness Stars to Avoid Universal Expansion
The universe is expanding quickly. So, quickly that if we don’t do something, our galaxy will get left behind, as dark energy pushes us further into the infinite abyss. Luckily, this won’t happen for billions of years, but in the meantime, we may be able to find evidence of advanced alien civilizations that are planning for this catastrophe by harnessing the energy of neighboring stars.
At least that’s according to a new paper, published by senior scientist Dan Hooper at the Fermi National Accelerator Lab at the University of Chicago, proposing that we look for signs of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization pulling stars toward their home galaxy. Why? So, they can prevent themselves from being forever lost in the cosmic expansion.
Hooper’s theory is based on the hypothetical Kardashev scale, which laid out a series of technological advancements that delineate how advanced civilizations may progress. We currently sit below a Type I, unable to harness all of the energy on our planet, but hopefully we will someday move on to a Type II, in which we will be capable of harnessing the energy of our home star, the Sun.
But if there are other, older civilizations in the universe that have had a million more years of advancement, they may already be harvesting the energy of other stars in their galaxy and thinking about preventing their galactic isolation. This is the Type III civilization.
If that’s the case, these solar harvesters might leave evidence of their work in the night sky through light signatures or fluctuations, showing them dragging stars across the sky or through evidence suggesting a controlled depletion of a star’s energy.
Hooper imagines that these civilizations would, “use the energy that is harnessed to accelerate those stars away from the approaching horizon and toward the center of the civilization.”
Astrophysicists are still confounded by dark energy, having been unable to pinpoint and define precisely what it is. Dark energy is hypothesized to permeate all of space and is thought to be responsible for the expansion of the universe into the unknown.
Within 100 billion years, all stars beyond our Local Group will be pushed away, beyond the cosmic horizon, to the point they will no longer be visible from Earth. The same expansion will eventually happen to other galaxies and superclusters throughout the universe, unless a massively powerful force is able to prevent it.
So, if we’re able to get past the petty problems we currently face on Earth, in which we’re the biggest threat to our own survival, we’ll inevitably face larger issues, like getting lost in the depths of space.
In this episode of Deep Space we explore the potential evidence of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations forming a Dyson Sphere to harness the energy of stars:
Did President Eisenhower Meet With Aliens at Holloman Air Force Base?
In 1953, President Harry Truman gave up the oval office and passed the reins of power to his successor, President Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike). It appears that Truman also gave Ike a pretty hefty file concerning a top-secret project called Majestic 12 that Truman established by Classified Executive Order. Majestic 12 consisted of a group of scientists, military personnel and other governmental professionals who all worked together to understand and communicate with UFOs and extraterrestrials (ETs).
President Eisenhower was extremely interested in UFOs and ETs: there is evidence that he met with ETs secretly, at least three times.
Once at Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) in California and twice at Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Since the Eisenhower meetings, other instances of UFOs landing at or near Holloman AFB have been reported.
1954 Eisenhower ET Meeting at Edwards AFB
President Eisenhower, who had been a five-star Army general, always had a “strong belief in life on other planets.” In February 1954, he was spending several days in Palm Springs on vacation. He disappeared for several hours one Saturday afternoon and even missed a scheduled public dinner. He was not seen again until late the following morning.
The press questioned Ike’s whereabouts, so the White House Press Secretary told them that Ike had chipped a tooth and gone to see a dentist. Even at that time, rumors were that he was visiting ETs at nearby Edwards AFB. The dentist’s story falls apart upon close inspection. Washington Post Staff Writer, Peter Carlson, denies the story of the chipped tooth and calls it a cover-up.
There Was No Dentist Visit
The Eisenhower Presidential Library has detailed reports of all Eisenhower’s medical and dental records. There is no reference to a broken or chipped tooth or dentist visit related to the Palm Springs visit. The Library also has copies of acknowledgments that were sent to everyone Eisenhower had contact with while in Palm Springs. There were records of people who met the airplane, people who sent flowers, the minister who gave the sermon at the Sunday service he attended, and others who played minor roles. But there is no proof of a note sent to a dentist. Years later, the dentist’s widow said she had no recollection of ever being told by her husband that he had done dental work on the President.
Corroborating Evidence of the ET Visit
William Cooper, who was on the Naval Intelligence briefing team and had access to classified documents, is a credible witness. His Review Of Those Documents revealed that ETs had had contact with Earth. They had warned that the Earth was “on a path of self-destruction” and they wanted to meet to help effectuate a long-lasting peace.
Meeting With Eisenhower
The first meeting with the aliens and President Eisenhower occurred at Edwards AFB in February 1954. Navy Commander Charles L. Suggs reported that his father had attended the meeting between Ike and the ETS. Eisenhower met with two Nordic appearings, blue-eyed ETs. A third one stood near the door as a lookout.
The discussions were polite. Eisenhower wanted to effectuate a treaty with the aliens but was unwilling to agree to their demand that we cease testing nuclear weapons. The aliens left with no treaty in place but returned the next year to Holloman AFB in New Mexico, not too far from the famous Roswell alien aircraft crash site, for a subsequent meeting with Eisenhower.
Gerald Light’s Letter
There is a corroborating story to the ET meeting with Ike at Edwards AFB. The accuracy of the story is difficult to confirm. A man named Gerald Light wrote a letter in April 1954 claiming to have been an eyewitness to the Edwards AFB meeting between Eisenhower and ETs. Light provided details such as watching Air Force officials studying five aircraft with the permission of their alien owners!
Some question the credibility of Light’s report since he was known to have a love of the occult and claimed to be clairvoyant, but others like Meade Layne, the former director of Borderland Sciences Research Foundation, confirms and believes Light did know first-hand what occurred.
