Dr. Michael P. Masters is a professor of biological anthropology at Montana Tech in Butte, Montana. He holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology specializing in human evolutionary anatomy, archaeology, and biomedicine. He has a diverse academic background that that incldes studies in astronomy, astrobiology, anthropology, and physics. He has an interesting theory and speculates that UFOs and perhaps even Aliens are distant descendants of Humans, returning to an earlier point in their History to study their own evolutionary past, we are to them what the caveman is to us.
“The [UFO] phenomenon may be our own distant descendants coming back through time to study us in their own evolutionary past,” said Dr. Masters.
He has authored an interesting book, Identified Flying Objects: A Multidisciplinary Scientific Approach to the UFO Phenomenon, which explains his theory and delves not only into the UFO realm but the related field of time travel.
“The extra-tempestrial are ubiquitously reported as being bipedal, upright-walking, five fingers on each hand and foot, bi-lateral symmetry that they have two eyes, a mouth a nose, they can communicate with us in our own languages,” stated Masters.

This provocative new book cautiously examines the premise that extraterrestrials may instead be our distant human descendants, using the anthropological tool of time travel to visit and study us in their own hominin evolutionary past. Dr. Michael P. Masters, a professor of biological anthropology specializing in human evolutionary anatomy, archaeology, and biomedicine, explores how the persistence of long-term biological and cultural trends in human evolution may ultimately result in us becoming the ones piloting these disc-shaped craft..."
