Gravity Attraction

One year ago I posted an article titled, Well, how did they get here?  Anyone who was born before 1985 may recognize the paraphrasing from the Talking Heads song Once in a Lifetime.  I have done that a couple times.  Those guys are awesome.  If you have never given them a chance, you are in for quite a shock.  I recommend starting off with the album 1977.  Digression acknowledged, this article is not about The Talking Heads (though I think I could pen a few thousand words about them, if I wanted).

Well, how did I get here?

Today's article is a follow up on that article from a year ago.  In it, I issued a challenge to the Scientific Community (whoever that is).  I gave my challenge a really cool name.  I called it, "The Marceau Contest."  Good one, huh?  Well, it is my contest so I get to name it.  Here is what it is:

How can we attract gravity?  Over the years, scientists and engineers have endeavored to repel gravity.  We think we have gotten pretty good at it.  But the methods are cumbersome and expensive.  We require tremendous amounts of thrust and lift, swirling engines, beating rotors.  It is loud and disruptive, like a house full of kids on the day after Halloween (not looking forward to that, in three days).  It consumes vast quantities of fuel and spews toxic exhaust into the air.  Human flight sucks.  We are really not good at it, after all.

Kids, the day after Halloween

Hold your horses, engineers and rocket scientists.  This is not a personal attack.  I am a tiny bit jealous of the folks who have committed themselves to improving these archaic methods of elevation.  It takes a brilliant mind to get an enormous vehicle, weighing thousands of pounds, to streak through the air.  But it is still archaic.  The Wheel set the course for modern times but it was many thousands of years before the rubber tire and shock absorber were invented.  We have a ways to go before we can say we have truly mastered flight.

In order to improve flight we need to figure out how aliens do it.  I am not talking about how they get from there to here, at the moment.  That is a different challenge (though it is possible the two are related).  Right now I am only talking about how UFOs are able to hover silently without the use of jet engines or propellers or wings.  Baby steps.  How do UFOs float inches above a treeline and not create a down-wash, like the ship I saw in Gagetown, New Brunswick?  What is their secret?

Gravity Attraction

My theory is, they are attracting gravity.  (It is as good a theory as any others I have heard, word.)  Human flight has always been focused on repelling gravity.  How do we fight physics and get ourselves off this spinning rock we live on?  But why fight physics?  Fighting never solved anything.  Well, that is not always true.  Sometimes two guys can duke it out and then have a beer together.  But not in this case.  There is a better way.  Rather than focusing on repelling gravity we should work on attracting it - not the gravity here on Earth, but elsewhere.  Out in space, there are greater sources of gravity than the Earth's.  They are just so far away that Earth's pull is relatively stronger.  If one were to break away from Earth's pull, the Sun would have a stronger attraction.  What if we could lock on to that, from right here on Earth?

The spaceship from The Gagetown Incident
What if humans figured out a way to lock on to the gravitational pull of the Sun and use it to attract a spacecraft?  We could use that force to propel ourselves towards the sun in an instant, no?  I believe that something like that is happening when UFOs shoot off into space.  The other witness to my sighting, Mike, said the ship we saw shot off into space in a streak of light, like when spaceships go into hyperspace in the movies.  If he had blinked he would have missed it.  Perhaps that ship locked on to a distant star, back in its home solar system, and used its massive gravitational pull to attract the ship instantly back home.

There may need to also be some manipulation of the fabric of space and time, in association with that, which is why I am not focusing on that part right now.  The first step we need to solve is the gravitational attraction for the purpose of elevation, here on Earth.  How can we get an aircraft to hover without any physical means of propulsion?  How we can attract the gravitational pull of sources which are stronger than the Earth's gravity but farther away?  This is the Marceau Contest.

Crazy Jonny
Good ole Jonny
When I first issued this challenge a year ago, I offered a dollar to the person who could solve this puzzle.  Apparently that was not enticing enough for anyone to drop what they were doing and get on this.  I am not sure why.  Right after college I moved to Los Angeles for a few months and I had a friend there whom some people called "Crazy Jonny."   Jonny jumped over the railing of a second story balcony into the court yard below, landing in the swimming pool, fully clothed, on a dare.  No money was involved - just a dare.  Jonny did not even look over the railing to make sure he would clear the sidewalk.  He just hopped over.  He came back upstairs soaking wet, in all his clothes.  I am sure Jonny would join the Marceau Contest for a dollar.  But clearly, Jonny was no rocket scientist.  I have not talked to Jonny in about twenty-five years.  He is probably in jail right now.  Good guy, though.

So a dollar ain't enough, huh?  I also offered an Archway molasses cookie as a second place prize if my youngest son could prove his Dark Matter (or as he calls it, "Black Matter") theory first.  The scientific community will be overjoyed to hear that my son is more interested in Hot Wheels playset reviews on YouTube than Dark Matter, at the moment, so both the dollar and the molasses cookie are up for grabs.  But not everyone likes molasses.  I get it.  And a dollar does not go too far.  You cannot even buy a Mountain Dew to fuel your scientific studies, for a dollar, anymore.  So I will sweeten the pot, so to speak, with a new prize: a box of Ring Dings.  Yes, you read that correctly, not one Ring Ding, a whole box of Ring Dings.  I have a connection; one of my students has a brother who owns a route and he hooked me up with a free box.  I could get another.

Ring Dings
Possibly the only treat better than a molasses cookie
I will revisit this contest in another year to update everyone on the progress Science has made.  In the meantime, keep your eye on the sky and your cameras ready.  Oh, and make sure you look over the railing before hopping over, into the pool.

The Spaceship I Saw - Part 1

Over the past week my brother in-law Cameron has been working on an artist's rendition of the spaceship I saw, which I am now calling the Marceau Ship (because, why not?) from the Gagetown UFO Sighting.  He is doing a great job based on my description.  If you saw the real thing you would say, "That's the ship from the picture!"

We are still working on it, which is why the image below says "Draft" on it.  Still, so far Cam has done an incredible job of capturing the shape and dimensions of the ship.  If I did not know any better I would say he must have been there with me, although he was not even born at the time.

Alien Headlights

What I really want to talk about today, though, is the lights.  Up front there were three lights or windshields in about a 120 degree arc.

I have always leaned towards them being windows because they were in the front, in the direction the ship was moving, and if I were on another planet, checking out the locals, I would want to look out the front window.  But they were so bright; Mike, the other witness, thought he was looking at a flare.  If you have the lights on in your house at night and try to look outside it is hard to see anything but then if you go out on your porch you can probably see your whole yard.  It is hard to imagine anyone could have seen anything outside the ship with lights that bright inside.  So maybe they were in fact headlights.

My sighting was on a military base and I was guarding a large cache of ammo.  I suppose if I were invading the military air space of a foreign nation, I would want to be in a vehicle that was bullet-proof.  Windows, even bullet-proof glass, would increase my vulnerability.  With the technology they had, they probably would not need windows, to fly.  They could navigate completely by computer and could see outside with cameras or similar (more advanced) equipment.  They probably have some type of infrared or night-vision but maybe things just look better for them with a bright light shining on the subject, like it does for us.

The color of the light had an orange-yellowish hue.  It reminded me of the way cities used to look at night when flying in an airplane.  Today cities are white at night.  But when I was a kid they were more orange.  That is because they were lit with different bulbs than we use today.  I used to think it was a mercury vapor bulb but last night Cam came over to finish up the drawing and I looked up the type of light I had in mind so he could color it accurately.  I believe it is called a high-pressure sodium bulb.

We spent a while fine tuning the shape, size, and spacing of the lights.  We needed to show that they were incredibly bright but still squared off.  It was as if the light had been confined to only shine a certain distance and to not spread - like a spot light but one which could be cropped on five sides of a cube.  I am imagining now that a species which has figured out how to travel here from light years away can probably manipulate light in a way which allows them to have hard edges on five sides of it.  When I explained this to Cam we figured out that he could create a layer in PhotoShop where he has a light that shines normally but then we make hard cuts to its edges.

DNA of Light

Then Cam asked me about the angle.  There was no angle.  I told him that this is a species which has figured out travelling at the speed of light (or faster).  They know all about light - like as if there is a DNA to light and they have mapped it and figured out what to do with it.

Speaking of light - a light bulb went on over my head.

I have never heard of anyone suggesting that light might have a DNA (or something like DNA).  I immediately looked it up.  I found many articles saying that DNA emits light.  But none discussing the DNA of light.

So here is another theory to add to my Marceau Contest.  Perhaps if we could identify and then map the DNA of light, we could then achieve intergalactic space travel.  Just to up the ante, the person or team that maps the DNA of light wins an entire package of Archway Molasses Cookies.

Am I on to something with this or is it just as far-fetched as the Multiverse Concept?  Post your comments below or on the David Marceau Facebook Page.
