In entries like David Jay Brown and Psychedelics, and Crossed Wires in the Brain, we've talked about how different some people's perception of reality can be from others. One idea that extends from that which we haven't talked about much is that what some people think of as aliens or UFOs might actually be shadows of patterns from other dimensions, or other nearby parallel universes. And last entry, we talked about having 4D Glasses, and how a 4D perspective would be constantly shifting in our probabilistic universe. This time, we're going to take those two ideas together - aliens and predicting the future.
The future is not random, it's probabilistic - which means there are only certain things that can happen now based upon what has already happened. If someone makes predictions that came true, did they do so by seeing the possible futures that lay before them?
My answer would be, why not? If those possible futures already exist within the underlying timeless structures of our reality, then isn't it possible for a person with a higher-dimensional awareness to catch glimpses of those futures?
Early this month I was hearing from people convinced that we would be contacted by benevolent aliens on October 14th: here's one of the many youtube videos posted about that, and here is a blog dedicated to the subject. We've talked about ideas like this at the tenth dimension forum a number of times - and in my book as well, I discussed how there are always a certain number of people making predictions like these throughout history. This fact takes on new significance if we're thinking about the Many Worlds Interpretation: there must be parallel universe versions of our universe where some of these persons were proved right!
Likewise, here's a video that predicts another major terrorist attack on December 13 2008. Will it come true? Or will it be like this year's much promoted ideas that the Large Hadron Collider would be causing the end of the world when it came online? We won't know for sure until we get there.
We all have moments of intuition where we sense future events coming. In fact, our brains are designed to predict the future: if we weren't able to do so we would all keep stepping out in front of fast moving vehicles and dying. A recent issue of Scientific American had an interesting article about optical illusions, and how it is that the brain's constant future-predicting function causes many of the more trippy optical illusions to function (you know, the ones that can seem to pulse or spin or vibrate). Here's an example of one of those kinds of images, this is from optillusions.com:

Of course, predicting what's going to happen one minute from now is not the same as predicting weeks or even centuries ahead - but the basic premise is the same, I believe, it's all part of a continuum. It still comes down to this though - if there are multiple futures, then someone who predicts the future has to be wrong some of the time, or we're back to there being only one possible timeline for our universe and no free will.
Did the aliens show up this month? Not so far as I know. Could they have? If that event is part of the wave function for our universe, then some place else in the multiverse that's what happened in October 2008.
So, if I may be so bold, let me say on behalf of that part of the multiverse: welcome, benevolent aliens!
Here to close, is one of the more popular songs from my project, and this is about the mysteries of the universe and our place within that mystery. The song is called "What I Feel For You".
