Thought control, of course. They have little wrist bands that can control a saucer's movements through space and time by reading their brain waves and sending a continuous stream of commands to the saucer's guidance system via quantum tunneling and inter-dimensional harmonic tuning.
Sadly, when one of your medieval ancestors found one in a saucer wreck, he noticed the regular movement of the chronological control indicator, and spent the rest of his life trying to duplicate its measurement of time. Now you have alarm clocks to wake you up, and you're all slaves to alien time, and you all spend a lot less time in the dream dimension.
I'm still pissed at that hotshot foo-fool. Humans are much crankier with less sleep!
