                      Nano Machines actually could explain a lot. Feels kinda Skynet-ish.

                                  Everybody knows boa Hancock from one piece is the one responsible.

                                  On a serious note, my guess wouldve been some kind of celestial event, but then again that would be a mediocre plot scenario for an anime

                                    Eric Lane definitely not a celestial event , if you rewatch the anime it looks like it appeared from the planet , not the sky or space

                                          @Ken Kaneki is it legal? Because if not I am unable to use them.

                                          Violates my religious beliefs to break the law (even if the rights holders are richards many times).

Since we see in a 3rd dimension and it works in cells because only us and swallows were turned to stone, and if we can't see in a grader dimension of being they maybe have been watching us. You see swallows was a random chose of creature, why swallows? what properties do they have? Well they served a purpose of practice, to see if it worked, because swallows was a practice, a test to see how it did, and since it was fossilized and it worked they later used it to fossilize humans by a being/ai in the 4th dimension that we can't see that are watching us.
