Following the revelations of U.S. Navy pilots regarding their encounters with UFOs, an expert on the subject said that these beings may not be extraterrestrial at all. He suggested that the UFOs the pilots saw may actually be humans from a different timeline or dimension.

Earlier this week, The New York Times reported on the actual encounters of Navy jet fighter pilots with unidentified aircrafts. According to them, the flying objects exhibited characteristics that defy the engineering design of traditional and conventional aircrafts.

John Ventre, the former state director for the Pennsylvania Mutual UFO Network offered his insights regarding the matter in an attempt to explain what the pilots actually saw.

During a live interview with KDKA Radio, Ventre doubted the claims that the unknown objects came from space since he doesn’t believe in the existence of alien life outside Earth. Instead, he insisted that the objects were piloted or operated by beings from the same planet.

“Just because it flies doesn’t mean it’s from outer space,” Ventre said during the interview. “I think most of these originate right here on Earth.”

Ventre speculated that the flying objects encountered by the Navy pilots were advanced military aircrafts that came from the future. He added that these aircrafts could have been piloted by humans who ended up on the current timeline through interdimensional travel, a topic that was widely tackled by director Christopher Nolan’s 2014 science fiction film “Interstellar.”

“I think what we’re dealing with is maybe interdimensional,” Ventre said. “It could be us from the future, it could be something coming through a dimension.”

Ventre noted that his theory of interdimensional beings and flying objects can be traced back to the advancements made in the field of aerospace technology.

Given the various innovations over the past couple of years, such as stealth technology and drone capabilities, it is possible to think that today’s humans will be able to develop practical technological advancements that mimic those seen in science fiction movies. According to Ventre, the military could be moving forward with the development of fusion power and anti-gravity technology with its future aircrafts.
