I love this story.. the weirder it gets, the more uncomfortable the scientists investigating it seem to get. I have no insight as to what is the cause of the fluctuations and have no real care if it is aliens or an otherwise unseen natural phenomena. What I do enjoy however is the conflict between empirical data and the parameters of accepted scientific thought. Challenge the boundaries at all times, for when you break them you shall find the truth.
