Ryan Graves on the Lex Fridman podcast: UFOs and Aliens special!👽🛸✨

Have you ever thought that maybe they could exist? I know I have. Ryan Graves, who is an F-18 advanced fighter pilot for the Navy, has engaged with UFOs. He goes into all the details along with discussing the Department of Defense’s release of UFO footage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLDp-aYnR1Y If you start this video at about 1:01 Ryan starts to talk about how he saw a light and engaged with it while he was flying one day, but, he first talks about all the stars over the ocean–the shooting stars and the peace he felt just before it. Then he goes on to explain, again, that he and a few people in his squadron had detected UFOs. The link to the Lex Fridman podcast is above.

When he was a junior pilot, around 2014, he had been operating with his team in the city of Afghanistan. He came back here, entered “the maintenance phase,” and further discusses the F18. The upgrading, and other things I will never understand. lol😅

But once he starts to talk about the radar of the F18, I understand a little better. He says how they had even gotten a better radar back then. There was a transition. So…there were objects on the radar that they hadn’t seen before. He’d seen these objects more clearly with the new radar: they saw a representation of the objects (UFOs).

All the data that came in represented tracking from the radar that showed us where the object was going. The “target aspect” would go all over the place. It was stationary. The UFO was stationary against the wind. “That is very uncommon,” Ryan says. For an object to be stationary against the wind like that.

The objects were at 20,000 feet, 10,000 feet, etc. The US NAVY considers the wind whenever they do anything. They go by the current and even plan their activities that way. BUT THIS OBJECT was stationary against the wind. IT WAS NOT A DRONE, Ryan verifies. He’d see these “instruments” flying in patterns, sometimes circular or just going straight east. And he’d see them doing this ALL the time.

This is air space where there was NOT SUPPOSED TO BE anything at all, off the coast of Virginia Beach. It’s not restricted but it is well monitored and Ryan and his crew were out there every day! If you also forward this video to about 1:40, he explained that one of the objects he saw appeared to have the shape of a “gimble.”It was black and white and appeared to be two plates put together.

As if there is an energy field that went to the top of the “funnel” or to the bottom of it, he continues. It continued on a long path and then just abruptly went into the opposite direction. It was very strange.

I find this fascinating. Michio Kaku is a famous world-renowned physicist. He’s talked about aliens and other life forms on Lex’s podcast also. But back to Ryan for a minute, he could tell that these objects were not going into a straight line but in more of a drift, they didn’t seem to be controlled by a computer (or autopilot). Here’s an article about it I also read on 60 minutes: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/05/17/ufo-sightings-navy-ryan-graves/ There is also a video of it in the article!

Ryan goes on to say it’s not a secret that we are not alone out there and maybe even being observed! The reason I find this fascinating is because I’ve been studying physics for a few years now, and I’ve have heard from more than one world-renowned physicist–that if there are aliens out there–they would be 2-3 billion years or more ahead. We are a young planet.

They would be able to command the winds. We cannot, yet. Type 1 planets can manage their planets to where they don’t harm them through global warming, for example. A type 1 civilization is capable of harnessing planetary power. They control the weather, again, earthquakes and volcanoes, and they can even modify and prevent certain damaging weather events such as hurricanes, etc., Michio Kaku says.

“A type 2 planet would be stellar. They play with stars, entire stars, and they use the energy output of a star. They colonize nearby stars! Type 3 planets are galactic and able to ROAM the galactic space lanes.” We are on the cusp of Type 1, Michio Kaku, continues.

Here is the link to that video also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5yc1LQrpQ

I am unique as a Christian in that I believe it is very likely there is other life forms. This is not hard for me to believe. As a matter of fact, I embrace it. I think they are peaceful. I think they even know Jesus as God and King. I think they are not out to harm. I think they know God and understand his love. I think what Ryan saw was them presenting themselves to us. Finally, I think there is a lot more to come!☄️🪐🌠

What is time?

God has a way of doing things on his timing, and his timing is better than our own. We don’t trust in God’s timing enough. We often think that our ‘time’ should be his ‘time.’ However, what is time anyway? According to the world’s greatest physicists, the past, present, and future are equally as real, and in space-time, they are happening at once! We don’t have time, we have entropy. We feel like we’re moving through time or flowing through it. However, time is not what we think it is. From a physics perspective, again, the idea that time passes or that we’re moving through time disappears…

Think of the arrow of time in this way. It is not built into the fundamental nature of reality, says famous physicist, Sean Carroll. We live in the aftermath of the Big Bang…or Big Event, as I like to call it. It happened 13.8 billion years ago. Everything you see, hear, feel, taste, and touch is called matter and is a result of it. Our very own bodies are made up of the same elements contained in stardust. The future has already happened, you just don’t know it.

God will make what we want to happen on his radar. As his children, we want to have control and be the captain of our ships. But there is a cosmic order, and we have to work within the Laws of Physics. People tend to think that they can make anything they want happen. Culture teaches if you only believe enough, religion teaches if you only have enough faith, you can have whatever your heart desires. It’s not true. Some things you want never happen to you. BUT MANY things do!

“In an eternal universe, such as the one we’re in, every rare thing can happen if you wait long enough,” says the famous philosopher, Sam Harris. But we have to be patient. Miracles happen but not in the way you imagined and sometimes it’s in a way you least expect.✨

Brian Greene on Lex Fridman’s podcast, Part 1☄️

‘Life is really what you make of it,’ says Brian Greene, world renownedphysicist and New York Times bestselling author. Brian says we’re all in a position of only being aware of our own conscience being though we can only judge that others are conscience by their behavior. There is something special about us. Fish and dogs aren’t able to come up with the ideas that we are. How can it be that a particle can create consciousness? Brian says.

In my opinion, it’s God. I believe in a supreme intelligence—Holy Father (God). His size spans the entire earth and he is too big to make out visually. I’m not sure how big he is, but he’s huge! His son, Jesus, is a reflection of his love.❤️‍🩹 All loving and kind. God is full of power amd light.✨ He’s the creator of the heavens and earth! Brian Greene says that he doesn’t believe there is no God. He has said he just doesn’t know.

By the way, he keeps the largest Christmas trees in his home at Christmastime!🎄 That’s another detail he’s shared. His views are accurate. We are beings just passing through; the whole universe will be destroyed due to entropy at some point. We don’t know when that will be (probably much further down the road). But in the meantime we are to make the best of life, enjoy it, and be kind to all of humankind.❤️‍🔥🙏⚛️✨🌤

Is there other ‘life’ out there? (Part 2)

You may recall this oblong rocklike object found flying in space by astronauts looking through NASA’s telescope. When people studied the trajectory of this object (it was not a comet or an asteroid!), it was the size of a football field and flew past the sun. Some astronauts believe it could’ve been sent to us from alien life, so we know they exist. It definitely came from another galaxy. When people studied it, they found that it was not a comet or an asteroid through evidence. This is not your “grandfather’s comet.” So scientists asked themselves, what if this object IS from another planet. They realized if you had a type of EXO planet, and if a piece of it got knocked off, it would appear like this rocklike object. It doesn’t seem to be some form of extraterrestrial life. I’ve had a vision before. I had a dream that two UFOs visited me, and they looked nothing like this. They were glowing, peaceful, and looked like spaceships. They did not look like a rocklike feature, but they looked very beautiful. I can’t quite explain them or find a photo that is fitting enough. But they came to visit me in the middle of the night while I was sleeping. I believe people were in there, or aliens, I should say. And when I ‘woke up,’ it did not feel like a dream at all. As a matter of fact, I remember feeling myself getting up out of bed to look out the window. In my opinion, if there is extraterrestrial life out there–and I believe there may be, especially due to this experience, I think they are more like us than we realize. I say that because all of the universe(s) follow the same laws of physics, so I imagine that the ‘beings’ on another (potential) planet where this life would be are more like us than we know. However, they would be way more advanced. Brian Greene, world famous author and physicist, has confirmed that if there is other life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead! We are a new planet. A new earth. Physics even tells us, in an eternal universe, anything can happen. This universe is eternal. And the more scientists learn that this universe could very well be infinite, almost with certainty, the greater the chances that we are not the only ones here. We are not the only ones in the universe(s), in my opinion. It’s the magic of math. The greater the universe expands (we know it is increasingly getting larger), the more galaxies there are (100-200 billion) that we have noted so far. The greater the chance there is “other life” out there. I believe my dream was more of a vision because I felt it was so real when I woke up. I think I was visited. They are out there. They are harmless. They know God as Holy Father, and even Jesus. They don’t necessarily follow our values or have our cultural taboos, but they are peaceful and kind.

Don’t wait until tomorrow, do it today!

The sun is the most beautiful commodity in the world, but we are told that 5 billion years from now, the sun may swallow up the earth. The sun may expand, and its heat may be more than we can take. Dinosaurs became extinct more than 65,000,000 years ago due to an asteroid, but asteroids may not be our problem. Entropy itself will win one day, and everything will come to an end. I mean, everything. I’m not telling you this to discourage you but to make you realize that life is finite. Nothing lasts forever. All buildings, structures, planets, black holes, and even protons will be destroyed. We are told by Brian Greene, best-selling author, professor, and physicist that this will happen at about ten to the sixty-eighth. Imagine that right now are at ten to the tenth, so it won’t be for a long time from now. But it actually can happen sooner, he says. We don’t know when. The universe is expanding, and one day that expansion may be too much. My point in telling you this is to remind you that we are here temporarily. What we do now makes a difference because if it’s not happening now, it may never happen. That’s why I want to encourage you to take that step, whatever it is, for the better to make that dream happen. Whether it’s starting a business or traveling. There is always something we aspire to do. Each of us have at least one thing we want to accomplish. Work on it now. And watch it come to fruition. All we have is today. Why wait until tomorrow?

Black holes and the slowing of time!

Ever wonder why time slows down near the edge of black hole? It’s because gravity doesn’t just pull down on matter and energy. It pulls down on time itself. Gravity is the warping of time. It’s why clocks will click off at different times according to where they are located. It’s why we have different time zones: EST vs. Pacific, for example. But as you get closer to the edge of a black hole, your clock gets slower and slower until it eventually stops! So, time stops because it is eternal (if you were caught near a black hole or even sucked inside!).


What is entanglement? Let’s take a look at this theory for a minute. It is when two widely separated particles act as if they are just next to one another. Separating them would make you think they are independent; however, they are not independent. There is communication. The particles behave the same way and even act the same. One particle could be in Los Angeles, and one could be in New York City. It doesn’t matter. They are influencing each other. They are entangled. There is something called ‘particle spin.’ Particles like to spin around.

But what is weird about entanglement is that you can have two particles (both spinning in opposite directions) and be widely separated. Still, when you measure each particle, they are spinning simultaneously! They are influencing one another. This phenomenon has left the world’s greatest physicists baffled for years. Einstein even called it ‘spooky action at a distance.’ They can even be on opposite sides of the universe or in the same room! One will spin up, and one will spin down at the same time!


Why is it relevant? Well, God says we are entangled with him in various places in the bible. When one died, ‘all died,’ for example. And the same with scripture that tells us, ‘we have been raised with Christ,’ before we were even alive. Also, we are made in his image and likeness. We are ‘duplicates.’ We are ‘paired’ whether or not we realize it. It happens everywhere. There is this entanglement all across the universe. Everything in the universe is duplicated.


However, let’s imagine that there is a chance the one can fall into a black hole. Ironically, if one of the entangled particles falls into the black hole, the other will not. So, why does only one of them fall into the hole? Why does the ‘thread’ snap? Because when one of them falls into the hole, time stops. Thus, there is no reason for a ‘duplicate’ any longer. The one in the black hole is eternal. You are no longer entangled. You are one with God! Some of these notes are based on Brian Greene’s ‘World Science Festival’s live lecture’ and Q and A online.

God’s love is BIG enough to love only us!

The multi-verse theory is more than you can imagine. Picture a trillion trillion+ other universes. If there is a vast multiverse with all sorts of things going on, the likelihood of ‘other life’ out there becomes higher, says Sean Carroll, world-renowned physicist, and mathematician. I think they’re out there, and they know God. I mean God, the Holy Father, and Jesus.


Famous physicist Brian Greene says, “If there is alien life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead of us!” So, why would they care about little old us? Well, if other life does exist, it may be so far away and so much more advanced to even care about us or what we’re doing here.


The probability that the multiverse theory is true is based on data. If there are many different ‘regions of space,’ life can exist in these sub-places. What is the probability that this is true? It’s high. It’s based on math. Mathematical principles tend to drive physics.


String theory says that the Laws of Physics can be different from place to place. But we don’t know if that is true for sure. However, the multiverse is very sensible to consider. Because God exists, life exists. Without God, there would be no life on earth or potentially anywhere for that matter.


Atheists don’t see a God who can be a caring or loving being that has a place set up for us, the afterlife. Few scientists especially cannot accept this. I’ve heard that if there was a God, why would he hide himself? But God is not hiding. He is all around.


We can see him in nature. We can see him in each other. We can adhere to his voice. We can say our prayers. We can find his inspiration from reading the Bible. He talks to us through our intuition. If it is good, pure, right, and whole; it is from the Lord. When God is involved, there is no doubt or shadow of turning.


I’ve heard the argument that if there were a God, entropy still would be the same way it was (low) as in the ‘early universe.’ What people don’t understand, though, is that God is perfect. He doesn’t have to make sense.


I’ve watched a demonstration of a Hubble space telescope in Sean Carroll’s talk that discusses all the galaxies with each having a hundred billion stars, and he says that none of them are necessary for us to exist on earth. So, why are they there?

Sean tends to think that we can’t argue that God would put them there for us to exist. Because they can be there with or without us, that is true. We are very tiny compared to a vast universe, now we suspect, universes. So, why would God make us? He doesn’t need to make ALL that to make us.

Why wouldn’t God only make our home the Milky Way? God’s love for us in a multiverse with a trillion trillion-plus universes is BIG enough to love just ‘us.’

His love is BIG enough to choose us. It may be big enough to love ‘others,’ perhaps, out there. Regardless, God’s love is BIG enough to not only love just ‘us.’ It is big enough for God to love ONLY you, all by yourself!
