The JUMP Theory

The JUMP is a theory that proposes that every great technological, scientific or agricultural advancement, throughout history, has been preceded by unexplained phenomena. The theory has been championed by Baron Rude and Hector Macchiato for years without notice from any branch of the scientific community. Rude and Macchiato have researched possible unexplained phenomenon preceding technological advancements throughout the history of mankind and have found proof that unexplained phenomenon has and continues to occur.
