This presentation cautiously explores the UFO phenomenon in the context of modern research in Anthropology, Astronomy, Astrobiology and Physics, and examines whether “aliens” – rather than being from a distant planet in a different solar system – may simply be our distant human descendants, returning from the future to study us in their own hominin evolutionary past. Dr. Michael P. Masters, professor of biological anthropology and author of the recently published book Identified Flying Objects: A Multidisciplinary Scientific Approach to the UFO Phenomenon, examines how persistent 6-million-year trends in hominin biocultural evolution, if continued into the future, are likely to result in the same form consistently described in authentic reports of close encounters with “alien” beings.
