Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

Invisible UFOs and Quantum Entanglement

by Ken Parsons

They say, thinking in an original or creative way is sometimes how major problems get solved; and that's the caveat I'm using before I advance what may at first, seem like a rather fanciful sounding hypothesis.

What I am proposing may be the solution to at least one specific aspect of the UFO mystery.

Question: Why is it that people sometimes capture invisible UFOs?

Here I am referring to photographs of unusual, structured, aerial forms such as 'flying saucer'-type objects; weird unidentifieds that in many instances, were imperceptible to the naked eye at the time of taking a perfectly harmless outdoor picture, (say, of some friends or a landscape) yet on which a UFO unexpectedly appears in the resulting image.

I have a hunch that the answer may involve what is known as Quantum Entanglement.

Recently, I read an article in the National Geographic which totally fired my imagination; from what I have learned, Quantum Entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance; instead, a quantum state must be described for the system as a whole.

What is more, scientists have already moved way beyond the theoretical stage, and successfully caught "ghosts" on film for the first time using quantum cameras.

The "ghosts" captured on camera weren't the kind you might first think; scientists didn't discover the wandering lost souls of our ancestors. Rather, they were able to capture images of objects from photons that never actually encountered the objects pictured. The technology has been dubbed "ghost imaging," reports National Geographic.

Normal cameras work by capturing light that bounces back from an object. That's how optics are supposed to work. So how can it be possible to capture an image of an object from light if the light never bounced off the object? The answer in short is our old mate Quantum Entanglement.

Entanglement is the weird instantaneous link that has been shown to exist between certain particles even if they are separated by vast distances. How exactly the phenomenon works remains a mystery, but the fact that it works has been proven.

Quantum cameras capture ghost images by making use of two separate laser beams that have their photons entangled. Only one beam encounters the object pictured, but the image can nevertheless be generated when either beam strikes the camera.

"What they've done is a very clever trick. In some ways it is magical," explained quantum optics expert Paul Lett of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

"There is not new physics here, though, but a neat demonstration of physics."

For the experiment, researchers passed a beam of light through etched stencils and into cutouts of tiny cats and a trident that were about 0.12 inches tall. A second beam of light, at a different wavelength from the first beam but nevertheless entangled with it, traveled on a separate line and never hit the objects. Amazingly, the second beam of light revealed pictures of the objects when a camera was focused on it, even though this beam never encountered the objects. The results of the study were published in the journal Nature. (A similar, more preliminary experiment back in 2009 demonstrated the same trick in slightly less sophisticated fashion.)

Because the two beams were at different wavelengths, it could eventually lead to improved medical imaging or silicon chip lithography in hard-to-see situations. For instance, doctors might use this method for generating images in visible light even though the images were actually captured using a different kind of light, such as infrared.

"This is a long-standing, really neat experimental idea," said Lett. "Now we have to see whether or not it will lead to something practical, or will remain just a clever demonstration of quantum mechanics."

Reading that article caused me to wonder, can Quantum Entanglement now be seen as a possible answer for the phenomenon of 'inadvertently', 'accidentally' snapped UFOs and even Spirits? strange forms that were invisible at the time of taking said photographs?

Can the humble camera, under particular circumstances, (as yet undetermined) hookup certain particles, such as photons or electrons, even if they are separated by tremendous spaces?

Or even much closer to home, if the UFOs etc are actually what some investigators suspect them to be... higher-dimensional manifestations!

That is why I would encourage a photographic technique known as 'sky fishing' - (the taking of random photos based on intuition) using *Burst mode: *Also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. In burst mode, several photographs are captured in quick succession by either pressing the shutter button or holding it down.

This certainly increases one's odds of catching something... maybe on the very first attempt as in my case... or on your ten thousandth try... so patience may be required!
