Tom DeLonge’s Provocative Theory: Are UFOs Piloted by Time-Traveling Humans Linked to Ancient Myths?

When you hear the term “UFO,” your mind might instantly conjure images of green-skinned aliens or distant cosmic civilizations. But consider a more provocative narrative: what if UFOs and their passengers are not interstellar beings but time-traveling humans from our own future?

This is no mere whimsy. It’s a theory steeped in complex physics and theological narratives. Quantum mechanics, for instance, leaves room for the possibility of time loops, while certain interpretations of the Bible describe angelic figures exhibiting knowledge beyond their era—both of which resonate with this audacious theory.

The first element to tackle is the concept of time travel. While often confined to science fiction, eminent physicists like Stephen Hawking have posited that time travel is theoretically possible. According to the ‘closed timelike curves’ in the framework of general relativity, time loops could exist, allowing future humans to visit their past. These aren’t just sci-fi tropes but are grounded in equations and peer-reviewed studies.

Let’s pivot to the religious aspect. Demons, Djinn, and Archons, prevalent in various sacred texts, are often portrayed as beings wielding exceptional power and knowledge. Could these accounts be ancestral interpretations of encounters with temporally displaced humans? For example, the Book of Enoch, an ancient Jewish text, describes angels giving humans advanced knowledge, like metallurgy, which could be understood as technologies not yet discovered at that time.

Ancient civilizations would have no framework to comprehend advanced technology or scientific phenomena, often attributing them to the divine or the supernatural. Consider an event like the parting of the Red Sea or the Vimanas described in ancient Hindu texts—aircraft-like vehicles that could fly. To ancient peoples, these could only be miracles or divine interventions, not technology or beings from the future.

Now, let’s examine the idea that ancient scriptures could offer more insight into UFO phenomena than modern scientific equipment. Texts like the Mahabharata or the Sumerian tablets describe flying objects and advanced warfare, often attributed to gods or celestial beings. Could these be coded accounts of interactions with time-traveling entities, whose advanced technologies were beyond the comprehension of people at the time?

This daring theory not only challenges our conventional understanding of UFOs but also invites us to reconsider historical and religious texts as possible source materials for unraveling one of the greatest mysteries of our time.

The catalyst for this article was a tweet from Tom DeLonge, co-founder of To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science and a musician. DeLonge’s tweet echoes the essence of this theory and serves as a reminder that sometimes, groundbreaking ideas can be sparked in the most unexpected places.

The power of social media to ignite meaningful dialogue is undeniable. While this theory is far from proven, it offers a fresh perspective that warrants further exploration. Like DeLonge, we may not have all the answers yet, but posing audacious questions is the first step in any meaningful intellectual journey.
