Maybe it's aliens who bought the toilet rolls, possibly all leaving Earth to get away from the virus, and toilet rolls are used in their propulsion system

I'm certainly not sure that there are any aliens, but it is conceivable. Scientists have managed to transfer one molecule from one part of a lab instantaneously to another part of the lab through several layers of glass and we only have very simple technology compared with what aliens must have, so perhaps they can move instantly from one part of the universe to another. We are too simple to understand, but truth is stranger than fiction.
It is odd that alien reports were mainly between 1945 and 1985 when lots of nuclear bombs were being exploded which may have attracted them, if they exist!
Well I think you've made the point in the last sentence - it was during that period when the Cold War was at its height, which is when both sides were trying to convince one another that they were ahead with the ultimate tech (remember Reagan's "Star Wars" ? ). Furthermore, with the advent of very portable video equipment, the fakers are no longer able to produce fakes (Roswell alien was an early VHS fake).
However, yes, I agree with your first paragraph above. If you look on youtube at 4-dimensional space simulations (4 true "geometric" dimensions) then that might
be one possible explanation for many things that we have yet to explain. e.g. Newton's Laws are fine within our solar system, but when you go further and further out between Solar systems they may no longer work so well (it's only in 2013, approx 25 years after launch, that Voyager 1 passed into interstellar space). What goes on in the centre of our galaxy, or in the space between galaxies, could be even stranger.
There are also alternative theories that challenge Einstein's general relativity see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einstein% ... tan_theory
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternati ... relativity
and there's also Hausdorff space to consider https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hausdorff_space
Plus, although the speed of light may be a constant everywhere in our galaxy, there are theories that it has changed over time .
So yes, it may be possible to travel great distances in ways that we have yet to find out, but if so, surely a flying saucer would have no requirement to "fly" - it would just "materialise" on the surface (and you'd have to get the space-time co-ordinates bang-on to the mm and usec) , and then "de-materialise" when time to go.
