It is interesting that the old "alternate dimensions" argument
was finally brought into the picture in an effort to explain the
obvious inconsistencies and odd events that seem to go along
with many abduction scenarios. And this is particularly
noteworthy since Hopkins, from my perspective anyway, has always
been much more of a nuts-and-bolts (or perhaps "blood-and-guts")
proponent. He hasn't quite made the jump yet from the Mars Needs
Women viewpoint to a more paraphysical stance, which might
included ghosts and demons and all the other entities that go
bump in the night, by it is an interesting shift.

But this sort of "explaining something unexplained with
something perhaps even more unexplained" is not going to win
very many debates. Unless there's some way to anticipate an
event and get some decent data - synchronized, sealed clocks
that end up with time differences, maybe - then it's all just
fluffy conjecture. Hell, even I can do that!

What would be a good experiment to test this invisibility/pulled
out of normal spacetime experience? Again, when it comes to the
idea of measuring or manipulating time within spacetime, I'm no
Einstein. I admit I'm just not smart enough to come up with even
a decent paradigm within which a test can be structured.
