This one was spotted by G.B., H.B. and a few other people, and it's one you know I've got to talk about. It seems the US Navy was awarded a patent in 2016 for ... well... a triangular field propulsion UFO. Here's the article, and the actual patent:
The US Navy secretly designed a super-fast futuristic aircraft resembling a UFO, documents reveal Read more: https://metro.co.uk/2019/04/18/us-navy-secretly-designed-super-fast-futuristic-aircraft-resembling-ufo-documents-reveal-9246755/?ito=cbshare Twitter: https://twitter.com/MetroUK | Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MetroUK/
Now there are a few things here that, as the reader might imagine, have my high octane speculation motor working in overdrive mode, and also that have my suspicion meter deeply into the red zone. So let's deal with the high octane speculation part first.
The article itself and its accompanying diagrams from the patent are what set both the high octane speculation and the suspicion meter into motion:
‘It is possible to reduce the inertial mass and hence the gravitational mass, of a system/object in motion, by an abrupt perturbation of the non-linear background of local spacetime,’ the patent says. The craft described in the patent features a cavity wall filled with gas, which is then made to vibrate using powerful electromagnetic waves. This then creates a vacuum around the craft, allowing it to propel itself at high speeds. The UFO-style ship can be used in water, air or even space. ‘It is possible to envision a hybrid aerospace/undersea craft (HAUC), which due to the physical mechanisms enabled with the inertial mass reduction device, can function as a submersible craft capable of extreme underwater speeds… and enhanced stealth capabilities,’ the patent continues. ‘This hybrid craft would move with great ease through the air/space/water mediums, by being enclosed in a vacuum plasma bubble/sheath.’
Now, for those who have been following me for a number of years, this will sound vaguely similar to various speculations I've advanced over the years about the "triangular UFOs." This subject interests me because one often hears in conjunction with such UFO sightings that (1) they are very large and (2) that they are so large and so fast that humans simply couldn't have built them. And as a kind of "icing" on the cake of that argument, it is sometimes (though not often) pointed out that some of these triangular UFOs are so large that they couldn't possibly originate on Earth from humans since we don't have buildings large enough to build them.
Now, I've always thought that such types of arguments within Ufology - and they come in almost endless variations - are specious for any number of reasons. Simply put, there is no logical nor necessary connection between "largeness" and "not built by humans." And as for the "no building large enough" argument, that too seems to be rather specious. Think of the Hindenburg for a moment: an enormous, air worthy ship of an aircraft (if not entirely the safest), and the building it was built and stored in. In fact, when I first heard about these triangular UFOs, I shared my suspicion at the time (with researcher Michael Schratt, in fact) that these may have been large collapsible dirigibles of some sort - think of those air mattresses that automatically fill with a fan blowing air into them, literally unfolding - filled with gas for the lift, and using electrical potentials to "steer" the craft, allowing them both to hover, and to zip off or turn at tremendous speeds.
Well, that is not exactly what we see in this patent, but it strikes me as extremely interesting that the Navy's patent does talk about using a gas-filled cavity to vibrate electromagnetic waves and sheathing the whole thing in a plasma, which would also give it stealthy properties.
So from one point of view, we would seem to have a confirmation of my speculations over the years with respect to the triangular UFO phenomenon. This isn't to say that all triangular UFOs are of human origin, of course, but it does put the idea that I've expressed in various venues that we appear to be watching some sort of phenomenon (or phenomena) and human attempts to emulate it.
But why is my suspicion meter in the red zone? For a very simple reason, and that reason concerns all the strange space events we've seen lately, like satellite collisions, anti-sat weapons tests, Russian revelations of secret weapons, and so on. Leaking a genuine patent, or concocting a fake one, alleging a technology like a triangular UFO, would be a wonderful way to "keep the opposition guessing": is it real? Has it already been done (consider those triangular UFO reports), or are they bluffing?
See you on the flip side...
