Remember the scene of starlight streaking past the windows of the Millennium Falcon in “Star Wars” and the Starship Enterprise in “Star Trek.”? There you were shown what it is to experience  hyperdrive when spaceships approach the speed of light. As a result of it stars morph from points of light to long streaks that stretch out past the ship. It is according movie science,- and bad science to be exact.

When spaceships travel faster than light the view out the windows of a vehicle traveling through hyperspace would be more like a centralized bright glow, so concludes  a group of physics Masters students at England’s University of Leicester.

A phenomenon called *the Doppler Effect, affects the wavelength of radiation from moving sources, would cause stars’ light to shift out of the visible spectrum and into the X-ray range, where human eyes wouldn’t be able to see it, the students found.

The increased X-ray radiation from shifted starlight would even push back on a spaceship traveling in hyperdrive, the team found, slowing down the vehicle.We need go no farther than the Earth to understand this paradox. Similar to the force felt at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
If life offers us paradox we need to understand the underlying principle of Inversion principle. How we delight to see our baby taking its first step! It is also a sign that we have lost control of the baby that will become obvious sooner or later. We become mature and wiser with life experience. Irony of it is that what  to do with a body that is going to pieces? This inversion principle shall explain what is wrong with progress.

Note:*The Doppler Effect is the reason why an ambulance’s siren sounds higher pitched when it’s coming at you compared to when it’s moving away — the sound’s frequency becomes higher, making its wavelength longer, and changing its pitch.(ack: Space.com of Jan 15,’13-hyperdrive)

If Aliens come here there shall be future shock for great many.

Marvel Comics will simply have to be airbrushed away. Out with kryptonite and batman’s cape. Both shall be replaced by something more life-like, I mean Alien-size to fit three microns width of alien forms.

Those who swore by Star Wars and genuflected before some sci-fi mumbo-jumbo will simply dig a hole and be nomads of the Middle Kingdom.

Scientology will prove to be the Emperor’s New Clothes.  Some Alien street Arab will point to the ridiculous travesty of Religion and laugh their heads off. Is it Mission Impossible Mr. Cruise?

Those paranormalists will levitate while their brains that they left behind will go around asking if their brains can be set right.

Harry Potter will learn that he simply cannot escape the Hall of Incoherence in which he is trapped between bad prose and infantile fantasies.

These are some of the future shocks we are going to live with. Aliens will show themselves. Whether we take them for what they are depends on this question: Have we learned to separate the real from fantasy? If we have not  set our upper case in order we will see Aliens and look to the sky while ther are down at our feet.

Think of all the conspiracy theories we have; do they speak well as to our judgment or our intellect? We have learned to progress while undermining progressively the learning. We have covered up our tracks in such a fashion we all have become too clever for our own good. We merely lived not with human beings with real problems. We escaped instead  in virtual reality. Perhaps the invasion of Aliens ,-not in a negetive sense but in moral terms, may drive us to give learning its right value. Not the instant gratification but acquisition of maturity by willing to pay the price for becoming real human beings.

Tailspin:What value is to bend spoons? Aliens may teach Uri geller (if his gift is genuine) a few tricks  to make some  real contribution to science. For instance relation between mind and matter and not limit it to some spoons and forks.

LONDON (AP) – British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking says aliens are out there, but it could be too dangerous for humans to interact with extraterrestrial life.

The 68-year-old scientist says a visit by extraterrestrials to Earth would be like Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas, “which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

He speculates most extraterrestrial life will be similar to microbes, or small animals – but adds advanced lifeforms may be “nomads, looking to conquer and colonize.”(Ack:The Chicago Tribune-AP Press)
