Aliens are us
A new book by an American bioanthropologist invites scientists to take a closer look at a seemingly strange idea: it is not aliens who fly to the UFOs arriving on Earth, but people from the future who travel in time.
“We know where we are. We know that humanity exists. We know we have a long evolutionary history on this planet. And we know that in the future our technologies will be more advanced, - said the author of the book, professor of biological anthropology at Montana Technological University, Michael Masters, in an interview with Space.com. "I think the simplest explanation might be that we ourselves are flying UFOs."
For scientific purposes
Masters isn't the first to come up with this idea. In his new book, he tries to support her, drawing on his experience in the field of anthropology. If scientists in the distant future had the opportunity to travel back in time to see what people today were - instead of trying to learn it from ancient relics - they would not have missed it.
“The reports of the alleged kidnapping are mostly scientific in nature,” Masters told a Space.com columnist. "They are probably anthropologists, historians and linguists from the future who travel through time to obtain information through technologies that we do not have access to."
Tourist time travel
But scientists aren't the only people from the future who, according to Masters, can visit us with the help of UFOs - he believes that time travel could become a real tourism industry in the future.
“There will undoubtedly be those in the future who will be willing to pay big bucks to be able to go back in time and observe the historical period of interest in development,” he told Space.com. "Among the most popular tourist destinations are the pyramids at Giza and Machu Picchu in Peru … ancient and prehistoric sites."
