But there ...

Unconventional Flying Objects: A Scientific Analysis
Paul R. Hill
Hampton Roads Publishing
Paul Hill was a well-respected NASA scientist when, in the early 1950s, he had a UFO sighting. Soon after, he built the first flying platform and was able to duplicate the UFO's tilt-to-control maneuvers. Official policy, however, prevented him from proclaiming his findings. "I was destined," says Hill, "to remain as unidentified as the flying objects." For the next twenty-five years, Hill acted as an unofficial clearing house at NASA, ...

The purpose of this book is to articulate a general theory of information, and to define its two key concepts: nonlocal information and nonlocality. The scientific validity of the theory is derived from the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) experiment, and the fact that time equals zero at the speed of light. An analysis of information processes in the EPR-experiment reveals properties that serve as the basis of a novel nonlocal mindset. A nonlocal ...
