On a recent episode of Coast to Coast AM, host George Knapp interviewed Dr. Eric Ouellet, professor of Defense Studies at the Royal Military College of Canada, about the idea of UFOs being poltergeist events. Quellet outlined his new hypothesis, which posits that UFOs could very well be manifestations of psychic forces humans are projecting onto the world around them. The hypothesis is the culmination of years of parapsychological research into poltergeists which shows that there seems to be a pattern to the activity. Ouellet applied this parapsychological methodology to historical waves of UFO activity and discovered notable similarities.
“We may be the ones causing some of the UFO events,” Quellet concluded.
Quellet believes societal discord may have caused humans to manifest these UFOs the same way that emotionally turbulent humans may create poltergeist type events and other psi phenomenon like hauntings. The parapsychologist went further to suggest that throughout human history, a vast number of paranormal sightings may be explainable as psychic projections shared through telepathic means. However, he did not suggest that ET visitations and psi projections are mutually exclusive. Furthermore, Quellet noted the prevalence of electromagnetic fluctuations in many UFO sightings, suggesting that there may be simultaneous extraterrestrial discharges that cause humans to hallucinate and give shape (flying saucers, triangles, etc.) to inchoate energy forms.
