I will leave it to others with a scientific mind as keen as yours to comment on or dissect it. But all I will say about your remarks above, is that there appears to be a difference between apported objects in the Spiritualist scenario and UFOs. The apports, as you say, are usually common earth objects which appear to have been moved from where they originated, to - for instance - the s=E9ance room. Of course the Spiritualists' explanation is that 'spirit' - or the other dimensional world of the dead - is the agency responsible for performing this very neat trick. But UFOs on the other hand are not - we presume - common earth objects and therefore could conceivably come from another dimension. During the Scole Experiment they seemed to have two different phenomena in this area - apports which stayed and could be kept as solid objects and paranormal objects which became visible and appeared to be solid, but which 'dissolved' leaving no physical trace. These latter type included many miniature UFOs - looking all the world like the lighted discs we are familiar with - but unlike apported familiar objects, they were irretrievable afterwards. All I can say is that to my non-technical mind, this would make some degree of sense in that earth objects could be moved from one place to another but objects from another dimension couldn't permanently manifest in this dimension. In the Skinwalker case remember the giant wolf they shot at? Lumps of apparent flesh broke off the body but dissolved into nothing, shortly afterwards - suggesting that it was interdimensional in origin and couldn't permanently survive in our world.
