New study explores the possibility of plasma-based life in space

Have you ever wondered if there is life beyond Earth? Most of us imagine alien beings as carbon-based organisms that need water and oxygen to survive. But what if there is another way of life that does not depend on these conditions?

What if there is a form of pre-life that exists in the plasma state, the fourth state of matter?

This is the intriguing question that a team of researchers from various disciplines and institutions have explored in a new study published in the journal Astrobiology.

The study, titled “Extraterrestrial Life in Space. Plasmas in the Thermosphere: UAP, Pre-Life, Fourth State of Matter“, presents evidence and arguments for the existence of plasma-based entities in the thermosphere, the layer of Earth’s atmosphere that extends from about 90 to 600 km above the surface.

The researchers analyzed video footage from 10 NASA space shuttle missions, showing self-illuminated plasmas up to a kilometer in size that exhibit life-like behaviors, such as feeding on electromagnetic radiation, changing shapes and sizes, moving at different speeds and directions, congregating, interacting, and leaving trails.

They also compared these plasmas with those observed and filmed by astronauts, military pilots, and civilians over the years, often classified as Unidentified Aerial or Anomalous Phenomena (UAP).

The study suggests that these plasmas are not biological, but may represent a form of pre-life that could evolve into more complex forms by incorporating elements common in space, such as hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen.

The researchers propose that plasmas are attracted to electromagnetic activity, and may account for many of the UAP sightings over the centuries.

“Plasmas are electromagnetic entities that have cellular characteristics and display distinct behavioral patterns which are affected by their electrical properties, and this causes them to interact and behave individually or collectively,” researchers conclude.

Because plasmas in the thermosphere are attracted to electromagnetic activity and descend into thunderstorms and the lower atmosphere, they likely account for at least some of the numerous reports of UFOs and UAPs over the last several thousand years, including the “foo fighters” observed by German, Japanese, and Allied pilots during WWII, and at least some of the UAPs recently reported by jet pilots.”

The study challenges the conventional assumptions about the nature and origin of life, and opens up new possibilities for exploring and understanding the universe.

“The plasmas depicted in this report are electromagnetic phenomenon, and are estimated to be up to a kilometer (or more) in length or diameter. Plasmas in the thermosphere have been observed to change shape and grow larger or smaller.

“Plasmas can also be less than a few centimeters in diameter. Unless created in a laboratory, or they gather in large herds in the lower atmosphere and interact or accelerate to hypervelocity, the smaller plasmas are far less likely to be observed or detected.”

  1. All of this was anticipated by Trevor James Constable in his classic book, They Live in the Sky: Invisible Incredible UFOs Around Us. First published by New Age Pub. Co. / Saucerian Press in 1958 under the pen name of “Trevor James,” it was revised / republished as The Cosmic Pulse of Life: The Revolutionary Biological Power Behind UFOs in 1990. A paperback reprint edition of They Live in the Sky was released in 2016, and it is readily available on Amazon and in bookstores.

    Much like Ivan Sanderson’s Invisible Residents opened up the whole subject of underwater UFOs (even if nobody bothers to acknowledge his research in more recent articles on this topic), Mr. Constable’s work provides some much needed background and context in terms of thinking about this phenomenon, and it is highly recommended. Yes, boys and girls, there were UFOs and ufology long before the Tic-Tac videos went viral, and it is always best to “begin at the beginning” and see what the old hands had to say about such things.
