I must say one thing that does intrigue me about a lot of these conspiracy or paranormal phenomena is the propensity for things that are allegedly all around us and only show up only on a magnetic or otherwise electromagnetic medium, such as audio and video.
Thatís where the ultra-dimensional concept gets interesting, because entities often spoken of as ghosts or other spirits seem to utilize ambient energy and are capable of being captured via energy. An explanation Iíve heard on the cold spots that accompany many events is that a presence must draw on local energy fields to manifest, which results in a temperature drop.
Where it gets curious is that physicists can measure the mass of a given area of space by the effects of gravity, but most of that mass is unseen. Some is dark matter, and some is dark energy, which is really a phrase to describe whatever the unseen majority of the universe is made up of, and we currently have no fricking clue what that is.
I have surmised that maybe thatís what the spirit world is, if it truly exists; something that modern physics and cosmology is describing that runs parallel to us all but goes undetected.
As far as the Grays go, Iíve heard an interesting spin on them too. I own a book called Monsters: An Investigator's Guide to Magical Beings, which floats a very interesting theory.
Most skeptics say that UFO encounters are phenomena of the modern era only, and that means people are just plugging into the modern sci-fi and futurist mentality and such since the famed Roswell incident. We all know that things that could be interpreted as extraterrestrial pervade world art and literature, from the Bible, Medieval paintings, and the accounts of Columbusí voyages to the New World.
Where the book gets interesting is that it identifies Grays and the Fay as likely one and the same, as the encounter and abduction stories are strikingly similar on many counts. Fay or something like them appear in many cultures down through the centuries. If people are truly seeing something, there's no evidence to suggest it's modern only.
