The phenomenon of UFOs has given voice to New Age passion, and offered a haven for conspiracy theorists and mavericks of fringe-science.Assessment of the phenomenon has splintered the UFO community into three distinct schools of thought: the nuts-and-bolts contingency, the paranormalists and the naturalists.Among the most fervent advocates are those who strive to glean clues to the workings of revolutionary technologies … they scrutinize UFO reports for tell-tale signs of fundamental operating principles, and dream up means by which the alleged objects manage to fly.Some believe that the secret to UFO propulsion lies in the proper application of electromagnetic forces.

Of even greater interest to a growing network of amateur theorists and would-be inventors is the prospect of exploiting, for both propulsion and the generation of electricity, the so-called zero-point energy: the writhing sea of quantum fluctuations in the fabric of space-time.Theories of any sort concerning flying saucer propulsion systems are seen by skeptics as pointless attempts to objectify an urban legend … to make something out of nothing.

The great surprise for skeptics would be if any such theory actually succeeded in drawing something useful from what they consider the void of an ungrounded legend. The prospect of such an outcome was considered by Professor Emeritus in Anthropology at UCLA, Douglass Price-Williams, when he noted that It would be truly ironic if a flying saucer were constructed on the basis of clues that were wholly the product of a twentieth-century myth.That irony would doubtless be lost on many UFO enthusiasts, for whom the sight of a human-made flying saucer would be proof positive of alien-derived technology- obtained either by reverse-engineering crashed saucers, or through a secret, unholy alliance between them and us.Explored as an academic exercise are potential underpinnings within theoretical and speculative physics for revolutionary means of propulsion.

The reader will learn how these same theoretical considerations impinge on black hole paradoxes, the endless quests for free-energy or perpetual motion machines, and the ongoing search for a complete and comprehensive theory of the laws that govern the universe.
