Cary also ascribes to the idea that something called the Mach Effect could explain the possibility of interdimensional travel. The Mach Effect, which is actually a sound principle in physics being tested by NASA, employs the use of fluctuations created by a body of mass as it accelerates, that are in turn used to generate thrust.

Cary says he believes the Earth’s fluctuations can create momentary tears in the electromagnetic membrane separating our universe with a parallel one, allowing extra-dimensional entities access into this dimension.

The illustrious Jacques Vallee is also of the mindset that there may be something extra-dimensional going on, sharing a similar sentiment to Keel when speaking about the UFO phenomenon. Vallee believes there is something more than the traditional explanation of an extraterrestrial race visiting earth, instead believing in a possible window to another dimension.

“We are dealing with a yet unrecognized level of consciousness, independent of man but closely linked to the earth…. I do not believe anymore that UFOs are simply the spacecraft of some race of extraterrestrial visitors. This notion is too simplistic to explain their appearance, the frequency of their manifestations through recorded history, and the structure of the information exchanged with them during contact.” – Jacques Vallee


In the 1960s, the CIA investigated an alleged simultaneous encounter with Bigfoot and a UFO at Presque Isle State Park in the all too appropriately named city; Erie, Pennsylvania. The ensuing reports were documented as part of the infamous Project Bluebook, during which the government investigated thousands of cases involving UFOs.

Presque Isle is a peninsula arching out over Lake Erie to form Presque Isle Bay; one of the state’s most visited summer tourist destinations. On the night of July 31, 1966, four tourists from New York found their car stuck in the sand after spending the day relaxing on Beach Six of the peninsula,.

One member of the group, Gerald LaBelle, was sent to call a tow truck, while the others remained in the car. Around 10 pm, police on patrol stopped to ask if they were alright. After being informed that help was on the way, the officers said they would check back within the hour.

When the police returned about 35 minutes later, the group said it witnessed “something weird going on up there,” pointing to a location in the sky above a wooded area. One of the group’s members, Douglas Tibbets, went to investigate along with the two officers.

The two women in the group, Betty Klem and Anita Haifley, remained in the car while they waited for everyone’s return. Tibbets and the officers walked roughly 300 yards up the beach before hearing the honking of their car’s horn, hurrying back to see what happened.

Klem and Haifley clearly shaken, said they witnessed a “dull black shape, bigger than a man, big head and shoulders, arm-like appendages, no hands, no face visible, as though it had its back turned” in front of their car before it “lumbered into the bushes,” when Klem blew the horn. A scratching sound on the hood or roof of the car was also reported.

In the end, this creature was dismissed by investigators as a raccoon, despite the ladies’ very distinct description of a bipedal, humanoid figure. But what about the UFO?

The UFO was described as an angular craft emitting red and orange lights before descending down to the beach where it radiated a beam of white light that tracked something into the woods. But eventually it took off at an incredible speed to the north, shortly after the women encountered the humanoid figure.

In the early hours of the following morning, officers patrolled the area where the craft allegedly landed. The report says they noticed the presence of two unusual triangular marks in the area coinciding with the craft’s landing zone. The officer writing the report said, “I have no reasonable explanation of the UFO,” and described the witnesses as creditable.

Investigation of the case was eventually abandoned, remaining unsolved  to this day. The Project Bluebook report dismisses the groups’ testimony as possibly a hoax, though no definitive conclusion was made.

A local television station aired a segment some decades later, interviewing a man who said the UFO was a hot air balloon he ordered and built from an issue of Boy’s Life magazine. But this man’s claim implies that the homemade hot air balloon would have travelled in a straight line, precisely due north for several miles, carried by the wind without straying off course.

Despite the fact the witness’ accounts describe something far more complex than a paper balloon, the man’s testimony doesn’t explain the strange marks on the beach where the craft supposedly landed, baffling CIA investigators.

Could the Presque Isle incident be the result of a “window area,” where archetypal beings from another dimension entered our universe? To this day the witnesses maintain their accounts of what happened and many others have come forward saying they too, saw a UFO above the peninsula that evening.

As theoretical physics continue to change our perception of reality, with the prospect of a multiverse and quantum entanglement, it seems Einstein’s spooky action at a distance might be a little spookier than we imagined.
