about my session


The question of whether UFO visitors are friends or foes largely hinges on their origins and intent. For instance, if they are future human time travelers exploring different periods under the block universe model, we would expect to have a different relationship with them, and their activities in our times would undoubtedly vary from the actions of extraterrestrials, ultraterrestrials, cryptoterrestrials, those visiting us in a simulation, and even interdimensional future humans voyaging across different timelines in a multiverse context.

Material evidence to answer the who and why questions is lacking. However, by scrutinizing the accounts of those who have had direct contact with the travelers, and looking for patterns across these cases, it may be possible to garner some insight into who they are and why they are observed doing similar things across the world and throughout long periods of the human past. This talk will explore the vexing questions of who and why by examining recurrent patterns across well-documented cases of close contact in the context of different models put forth to explain the origin of these visitors.


Dr. Michael Masters is a professor of biological anthropology at Montana Tech in Butte, Montana. He received a PhD in Anthropology from The Ohio State University in 2009. His current research program centers on hominin evolutionary anatomy, human variation, archaeology, and biomedicine. In 2019, he published Identified Flying Objects: A Multidisciplinary Scientific Approach to the UFO Phenomenon, which examines the premise that ‘UFOs’ and ‘Aliens’ may be our human descendants, returning from the future to visit and study their own hominin evolutionary past.

His second book, The Extratempestrial Model, published in June 2022, analyzes well-documented cases of abduction and other contact modalities in the context of this time-travel model, and other theories put forth to elucidate this complex and mysterious phenomenon.
