The main argument presented in this paper is that the continuing study of unidentified aerial phenomena (“UAP”) may offer an existence theorem for new models of physical reality. The current SETI paradigm and its “assumption of mediocrity” place restrictions on forms of non-human intelligence that may be researched. A similar bias exists in the ufologists’ often-stated hypothesis that UAP, if real, must represent space visitors. Observing that both models are biased by anthropomorph ism, the… Expand
UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL PHENOMENA A Strategy for Research
After years of ideological arguments based on anecdotal data the field of UAP research appears ready to emerge into a more mature phase of reliable study. Renewed scientific interest now exists inExpand

CONSTRUCTING MESSAGES TO EXTRATERRESTRIALS : AN EXOSEMIOTIC PERSPECTIVE
TLDR
The “Incommensurability Problem” might be overcome by sending transmissions simulating natural phenomena themselves, rather than particular models of these phenomena, as well as the advantages of transmitting in addition to searching for signals. Expand
Wormholes in spacetime and their use for interstellar travel: A tool for teaching general relativity
Rapid interstellar travel by means of spacetime wormholes is described in a way that is useful for teaching elementary general relativity. The description touches base with Carl Sagan’s novelExpand
Searching for Extraterrestrial Civilizations
TLDR
It is argued that planning for a search for extraterrestrial intelligence should involve a minimum number of assumptions and that the galaxy is either essentially empty with respect to technological civilizations or extensively colonized, and a SETI would be unproductive. Expand
