Invisibility technology exists, and if humans have finally figured out how it works, and with nothing new under the sun, is it possible that invisibility is already a natural capability extraterrestrials and cryptids also possess?
Before discussing the possibility of invisible monsters and extraterrestrials, it’s important to discuss the reality of invisibility technologies, which not only provide visible stealth, but also evade electronic detection. This becomes a frightening prospect for ghost and paranormal investigators, as their equipment may no longer be able to warn them that they are in harm’s way.
Lockheed Martin, one of the manufacturers of fighter jets for the US military, announced in a 2015 article on their website: “How The Fantasy Of Invisibility Becomes Reality In The Sky.”
The article asked: “‘What kind of superpower would you like to have?’ Most of us say ‘invisibility.'”
Lockheed Martin said “Today, the F-35 strike fighter jet makes this fantasy a reality.”
The article explains: “Cloaking, which makes objects partly or wholly invisible, manipulates the direction invisible and near-infrared light or electromagnetic waves around an object as if it weren’t there.”
In addition to that advancement, scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at the University of California created an ultrathin invisibility cloak. It has the ability to make large objects disappear for the human eye and work for all visible colors.
In 2018, researchers from the University of California San Diego unveiled improvements in cloaking technology, developing an ultrathin “dielectric multisurface cloak” that masked objects from visible light and radio wavelengths.
In 2019, Canada’s Hyperstealth Biotechnology patented a new “quantum stealth” material that can disguise aircraft, tanks, ships, and soldiers, rendering anything behind it to seem invisible, Futurism reported. The material is paper-thin, doesn’t require a power source, and works by bending light.
In June 2021, The Israeli Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Polaris Solutions, an Israel-based firm announced the development of “multispectral concealment” technology to make its soldiers invisible and virtually “undetectable” by the human eye or with thermal imaging equipment, the Defense Post reported.
With all of the above in mind, it raises a number of concerns when we consider the possibility of invisible monsters…
Among the most frightening short stories ever is the horror classic “The Damned Thing,” written by Ambrose Bierce, and first published in 1893. The protagonists of the story are dealing with a series of disturbances, and the hero realizes that the creature he is hunting is invisible. Rather, the creature has a color, but it is a color that renders it invisible to human eyesight.
But as is so often proven, it seems things that first arise in the minds of fiction writers are prescient and have an uncanny way of turning into reality.
Could many things that go bump in the night possess a color that makes them invisible to human eyes?
Perhaps not every Bigfoot/Sasquatch/yeti/abominable snow creature is brown, black, or white. Perhaps they are another color. One we can’t see.
One takeaway from humankind’s development of invisibility technology is that it now has the capability of not only avoiding visible detection but also being undetectable with thermal imaging technology.
If you’ve seen the original Predator or any others in the series, then you are aware that the extraterrestrial creature uses a cloaking device.
This begs the question: Could extraterrestrials already be on earth and employing cloaking devices to keep their presence unknown?
The website Native Language writes: “The Bigfoot figure is common to the folklore of most Northwest Native American tribes. In some Native stories, Bigfoot may have minor supernatural powers – the ability to turn invisible, for example – but they are always considered physical creatures of the forest, not spirits or ghosts.”
Bhutan Canada writes: “Migoi is the Tibetan word for ‘wild man’ or more common to Western culture, the Yeti. The Yeti, often called the Abominable Snowman in the west and referred to as the Migoi by the Bhutanese, is a bipedal ape-like creature that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan. The Migoi is known for its phenomenal strength and magical powers, such as the ability to become invisible and to walk backward to fool any trackers.”
