One of philosophy’s oldest paradoxes is the contradiction between what the human mind perceives, what it knows and how it assesses information in order to make a hypothesis.

Hypothesis, of course, is an educated theory of something that is really not known – it can also be nothing more than a guess based on cognitive bias.

Many of these theories are based on limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation.

This is why I find it so irritating when I hear that conspiracy theories have been rendered to anathema by the media.

I guess we would be better suited to list any and all hypothetical theories about a subject in order to fend off the trolls that think conspiracy theorists are cranks in need of insulting epithets.

Most critical thinkers know how to apply classical logic to most things, however, are reluctant to use naïve logic when it comes to playing in the so-called scientific fields that defy any and all logic.

Naive logic is simply a presumption. You can presume anything about a subject and you can take all kinds of liberties when you are discussing hypothetical characters and or objects that may or may not exist.

This also goes for events or recollection of events that may add to an argument of something particularly outrageous or supernatural.

There is an old Latin axiom: “Ex Falso quod libet” which means falsehood is implied with every statement, however, every statement implies truth which contradicts the previous.

Basically, if a contradiction or a false proposition is proven to be true, then it proves that everything is true.

I have always taken that as I could be joking but I am very serious about what I joke about.

When I talk about St. Nicholas, then Krampus, then ancient symbolism connected to an evil god called Molech and then I ask a guest to elaborate and she makes all kinds of similar synchronistic comparisons and then makes a leap to some connections to something innocuous as Mickey Mouse people get very uncomfortable. Out of discomfort they may lash out and say that the whole idea is absurd and yet if they do the research they may be shocked to find that there are plenty of reasons to make the connections and even if you don’t like the connections or the ideas that don’t erase the reality.

This leads to paraconsistent logic or mental voodoo that doesn’t necessarily destroy classical logic it just happens to be the reason why people should not be so cocksure of the world they think they know.

This month we observe the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 8.

On December 21, 1968, Apollo 8 launched mankind into the moon’s orbit for the first time.

On December 25th, 1968 just moments after the Apollo 8 Command module cleared the radio shadow of the dark side of the moon Astronaut Jim Lovell said “Please be advised there is a Santa Claus.” There was another voice that said afterwards “That is affirmative.”

Even though this happened on Christmas Day 1968, many people sensed a hidden meaning in those words.” The rumors persisted that what the crew was indicating was that they came in contact with a lunar UFO.

It is believed that there were at least three UFO sightings near or on the moon during NASA’s missions and each time they referred to them as Santa Claus.

Reference to Santa Claus was first made in the context of NASA space operations by Walter Schirra aboard Mercury 8. He mentioned a so-called “Santa Claus” and so when Lovell made his statement to the world – most conspiracy theorists will point to the Mercury missions where the errant reference was made.

As far as we know, Buzz Aldrin most notably did not use the “Santa code”, during his report of an unidentified object visible during Apollo 11`s trip to the moon, which is widely reported as evidence of an extraterrestrial craft shadowing the Apollo capsule.

If the so-called Santa Code existed, the question is why it wasn’t used in the case of Apollo 11?

The “Santa code”suffers from lacks of inconsistency, or a lack of repeatability – perhaps the over usage of the term would raise suspicion. We have heard the term bogie many times – it could be that the code word Santa for UFO’s wore out its welcome. Who would use the Santa code in July? The answer is easy – no one.

On December 3rd, 2018 a NASA scientist admitted in an interview that it’s entirely possible aliens have already visited Earth – and we simply never noticed.

The space expert also noted that not all UFO sightings can be “explained or denied”, and said scientists should be more open-minded about the possibility of alien visitors.

NASA has long been investing in SETI, the “search for extraterrestrial intelligence” and in a recently published paper on SETI, Professor Silvano P. Colombano suggested that alien life may have already visited us.

He suggested that aliens could look so different from how we expect and that they may be able to travel huge distances – because we simply can’t comprehend their make-up or technology.

Meanwhile, another NASA contractor Donna Hare confirmed at least three UFO sightings were documented during the moon missions.

In a video testimony, Dona Hare says the space agency covered up a series of UFO sighting that they codenamed ‘Santa Claus’.

After 50 years the Santa Code controversy comes back – even though Jim Lovell said that it was an inside joke that the astronauts played on Christmas.

When Richard Hoagland appeared on Ground Zero November 30th, 2018 he mentioned some interesting coincidences with regard to the OSIRUS REx Mission and the strange interstellar Object Oumuamua.

OSIRIS-REx Launched in September of 2016, headed for an asteroid called BENNU. OSIRIS-REx arrived at asteroid Bennu on December 3rd, 2018.

Hoagland has said that he believed that NASA sent the OSIRUS Rex to the asteroid because they suspected that the so called asteroid was really a space station and that the probe would be able to land on the rock find indications of life and that it would keep the information under wraps.

He also stated that this project is another attempt by NASA to probe space for any signs of Extraterrestrial intelligence. He claimed that after our brush with Oumuamua scientists have secretly felt that there are space artifacts that are drifting in space that prove the existence of extra terrestrial intelligence.

On December 10, One week after Landing of OSIRUS REx, NASA announced the craft has already made a significant discovery. It has found hydrated minerals on Bennu’s surface – that is, evidence for previous (ancient) water, one of the building blocks for life.

Just to clarify, this discovery doesn’t mean Bennu has liquid water – either inside or on its surface – right now. Instead, it shows that Bennu’s parent body, probably a much larger asteroid that Bennu broke off of a long time ago, did have water.

The choice of naming this space rock, Bennu is quite interesting.

Bennu is an ancient Egyptian deity linked with the sun, creation, and rebirth.

Incidentally, Bennu was spotted on September 11th, 1999.

Just before the announcement about the Water found on Bennu, scientists were publishing papers on the possibility that many objects like Omuamua sized are out in space.

Some of which could be identifiable by the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST).

Researchers from Harvard University, undergraduate Amir Siraj and Professor Abraham Loeb, Chair of the Harvard Astronomy Department, have made their paper available on pre-publication archive arXiv while it is reviewed for publication in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. They used computer models of asteroid-like objects to see how they would be captured by the gravity in the Jupiter-Sun system and then used these models to identify four objects in our Solar System that are thought to have originated from elsewhere.

The objects, 2018 TL6, 2017 SV13, 2011 SP25, and 2017 RR2, were identified by looking at factors like their eccentricity, inclination, orbital period, perihelion distance, and aphelion distance, which are mathematical descriptions of the movements and positions of the objects. In total, there could be around 350 trapped interstellar objects in our Solar System, of which 66 would be detectable by LSST, and these objects would provide a potentially valuable target for research.

The question is what exactly are they researching?

Last summer we reported that research papers published in June.

That NASA’s Nexus for Exoplanet System Science, or NExSS, would be moving forward within the search for life on distant planets and to lay the groundwork for moving the related sciences forward.

NExSS scientists took an inventory of the most promising signs of life, called biosignatures. They considered how to interpret the presence of biosignatures, should we detect them on distant worlds. A primary concern is ensuring the science is strong enough to distinguish a living world from a barren planet masquerading as one.

There are many scientists, however, that see all of this as an effort that will lead to no answers, basically chasing after rainbows or pardon the holiday metaphor, Santa Claus.

Well if the shoe or the boot fits perhaps there is some scientific method or naïve logic we can use to pump up the proof of Santa—or that perhaps everything has an alien bed to it when thinking of faster than light travel or even quantum mechanics.

This increases the payload (not even counting the weight of the sleigh) to 353,430 tons. Again, for comparison, this is four times the weight of the Queen Elizabeth. 353,000 tons traveling at 650 miles per second creates enormous air resistance — this will heat the reindeer up in the same fashion as spacecraft re-entering the earth’s atmosphere. The lead pair of reindeer will absorb 14.3 QUINTILLION joules of energy…per second…each.

In short, they will burst into flame almost instantaneously, exposing the reindeer behind them, and create deafening sonic booms in their wake. The entire reindeer team will be vaporized within 4.26 thousandths of a second. Santa, meanwhile, will be subjected to centrifugal forces 17,500.06 times greater than gravity. A 250-pound Santa (which seems ludicrously slim) would be pinned to the back of his sleigh by 4,315,015 pounds of force.

Of course, this would mean that Santa would wind up looking a pile of jelly rather than a bowl full of jelly.

I acknowledge that the reality of a Santa Claus is impossible using classical physics, but in a quantum sense, Santa can be very real.

With the usage of paralleled processing, it can be theorized Santa has the ability to do the job he is said to do simultaneously. It is done in the same manner as sending an e-mail to multiple recipients at the same time. Years ago, this was unthinkable; today in a split second; you can deliver an e-mail to millions of people simultaneously without even having to leave your chair. How can anyone track the speed of that? The possibility to us is limited to the technological practice we take for granted.

There are fewer varieties of toys in the world than e-mail recipients and yet we can’t wrap our minds around the fact that in some future timeline the simultaneous appearance of matter cannot be accomplished and yet an e-mail is a thought electronically sent and it is very possible that people in all time zones can receive it.

Fax machines a rarely used today, but there is an argument that can be made about one piece of paper being inserted in a machine in one place and having millions of copies coming out in offices all over the world received by people.

Now, if the next logical leap of science is to take that knowledge of parallel processing and bring it out of the computer and into our material world we can now see that the old traditional Santa Claus model is flawed but the new scientific progress can make the new Santa hypothesis closer to reality.

The fact that no one knows where Santa is at a particular moment in time makes him a perfect candidate for some elementary use of Heisenberg’s Principle of Uncertainty.

Consider this: On Christmas night, Santa is in a superposition of quantum states, smeared out all the way around the planet, and each quantum state delivers presents to a single child. This explains why it is so important that children are asleep, because if just one child sees Santa, he immediately collapses into a single state, in accordance with Heisenberg. So peeking in on Santa would freeze him in that small moment in time and that would mean that no other children would receive presents that Christmas.

This theory elegantly avoids all the flaws in the conventional theory.

Of course, the smearing of Santa is similar to the manner in which an electron is “smeared out” within a certain distance from the nucleus in an atom. Thus he can, quite literally, be everywhere at any given moment. Another mind-boggling theory is that there are also possibilities that Santa is entirely capable of arriving before he even leaves the North Pole. It would be possible to see two images of him and then he would take on the characteristics of tachyon particles.

Because a tachyon always moves faster than light, we cannot see it approaching. After a tachyon has passed nearby, we would be able to see two images of it, appearing and departing in opposite directions. Yes, it is all hypothetical but so are Black Holes – well, they are still debating their purpose and whether or not they reveal anything about time and space.

This brings us back to that, ‘Many-Interacting Worlds Theory’, paraconsistent logic, mental voodoo or the ghost universe proposition.

It can all be real or it can all be some sort of variation of some alien folk tale that the astronauts adopted to describe a UFO or something else.

After all, Quantum mechanics also allows for things to be transported great distances in little time. Something that is indistinguishable from magic.

Because their position isn’t a definite point but a wave spread out over space, particles can sometimes “tunnel” through barriers that, according to classical mechanics, they shouldn’t be able to pass.

Again, assuming Santa actually knows how to accomplish this (he does, after all, know when you are sleeping; he knows when you’re awake; he knows if you’ve been bad or good…), it would take a huge amount of energy to realize.

Using these convenient quantum entanglements, Santa could very well be an alien or some extraterrestrial being that has been packaged in a red and white suit.
