Where do we come from? The latest news has been found in that infamous bottom drawer!

As a journalist you hunt the latest news right? As a journalist you try to hit the head-lines with articles none have yet heard of. But have you already heard about those jaw-dropping and mind-blowing theories from scientists and citizen scientists concerning this question mankind is pondering over for so long; “Where do we come from?”

Brilliant and open-minded people from all over the world and are all experts in their own field. And while they are conducting the most extensive, incredible and interesting researches, these two words can be read on some of their black-boards; What if…?
After having several conversations with respected experts it was quickly understood that so many fantastic ideas have landed in that infamous bottom drawer. So, proximus 10 months ago I stopped running up to the latest news, fighting thousands of other journalists to be the first and the best, and set a quest for those people who wrote amazing hypothesis, magnificent thought-experiments and even advanced engineering… The Next Truth Magazine was born!

And even it might sound strange to some but these so called ‘old writings’ have turned out to be latest news when asking the questions “Where do we come from?” and “What if…?”

Thank you all for your generosity in contributing your incredible work and, hopefully, for the myriad and amazing contributions to come. The Next Truth would not have existed without your efforts, time and… courage.

Science vs Pseudo-Science

Imagine being alive when Albert Einstein was developing his theories of relativity. Or witnessing the birth of psychology, as Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis took over the scientific mainstream. The early 1900s was indeed an amazing time for Western science. But there was another figure on the intellectual scene when these great minds were at work.

Young philosopher Karl Popper, born in Austria and built his career in Britain, was giving serious consideration to the new ways that these and other scientists of the time were thinking about the world. And after looking at different methods that people like Einstein and Freud were using, Popper came to understand that not all scientific achievement was created equal. He ended up making an important distinction, between science what he called ‘pseudo-science’. And in the process of doing this, he taught us volumes about the nature of knowledge itself, and how we can best test it, challenge it and to bring us closer to the truth.

As a young scholar, he learned about the psychoanalytic theories of Freud, attended lectures given by Einstein himself about the rules of the universe and he noticed that these great thinkers used different methods. Popper observed that Freud was able to make just about any data point work in service of his theory. For example, he could explain a person’s intimacy issues both in terms of not being hugged enough as a child, or in terms of having been hugged too much. Evidence to support Freud’s theories seemed to be everywhere!

Popper saw that Einstein was making a different type of prediction. Instead of looking backward, and using past data to “predict” the present, he was looking ahead, and predicting future states of affairs. Einstein’s theory was truly risky, Popper realized, if the future didn’t match his predictions, then his theory would be conclusively disproven. If the results of the solar eclipse in 1919 had been different, general relativity would have been finished. Freud, on the other hand, could always read the past differently, so as to maintain some kind of confirmation of his theory. Suddenly, Popper understood the difference between the science that Einstein was doing, and what Freud was doing, which Popper rather snootily referred to as pseudo-science. Now, whether psychology today is considered a hard science or a social science might be debatable. But you won’t find many mainstream thinkers who consider it pseudoscience. Still, nearly a hundred years ago, when Popper was reaching these conclusions, none had really characterized what “science” truly meant and what the implications were for the pursuit of knowledge.

If you’re a scientist, you’re gonna have to be willing to let your beliefs go. Accept the evidence. Move on. And this is the modern scientific thinking that we accept today: Testable, refutable, and falsifiable. You don’t seek to prove scientific hypotheses right, you only prove them wrong. Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein, Karl Popper observed these developments firsthand and came to draw a distinction between what he referred to as science and pseudoscience, which might best be summarized as science disconfirms, while pseudoscience confirms. While the way we describe these disciplines has changed in the intervening years, Popper’s ideas speak to the heart of how we arrive at knowledge. Obvious? That shows how right Popper was – he was a philosopher and actually managed to hit on an idea so right that we don’t even really argue about it anymore. For Popper, knowledge was about probability and contingency.

And so we may conclude that pseudo-science does not speak of someone’s hypothesis, theories or methods not adhering to accepted scientific standards. These idea’s do contain scientific research whereby scientists and citizen-scientists have used an open-minded curiosity what has taken their thoughts beyond the borders of the safe outlines of any schoolbook. I feel it would be a lost for possible new ways in modern science when these theories, which do tickle the mind in many ways, have only one direction…the bottom drawer of a forgotten desk standing in a dusty attic after rejection and gaining this infamous mark ‘pseudo-science’.

The Next Truth was a guest in The Kentucky Ghost Hunter radio show

https://bbsradio.com/podcast/kentucky-ghost-hunter-april-24-2019

On 25-04-2019 my alarm went off at 02:30. I poured myself a cup of coffee and woke up my laptop. I was ready for The Kentucky Ghost Hunter’s radio show! And than…troubles with the skype connection. I went from 😁 to 😱 what was likely to be heard throughout the broadcast. 😂
Nevertheless, I had a great time. Thank you Dean and Kevin for having me as a guest in your radio show.

Above the link from The Kentucky Ghost Hunter radio show in where you will find me combating my nerves 😅
Have fun listening to my stuttering and… please give me the bad reviews in a colored gift wrapping 🤣

A one-time chance! The March issue of PUG… download the PDF version FOR FREE!

“Something is out there and it is inducing a tremendous fear into you. You are living in a place that is giving you nightmares. Then you wake up and whatever gave you this nightmare… is in room with you! It then takes you to where it is from so that you can witness all the pain, suffering from all the people being dragged in its cave.” What I just said listens to an eerie plot for a new horror movie but believe it or not, it is really happening and Paranormal Underground Magazine takes you at the center of it!

I think I have been 12 – 13 years old as I was collecting writing pads, pens, pencils, erasers… just anything I could get my hands on in order to start writing. After a while I collected that much material, I could start supplying a small bookstore 🙂  Billions of stories in my mind and no experience in how to present it on paper… it became a struggle in finding the right words for expressing the stage of the stories. Wasting paper for years and driving my professors crazy with that much papers, possessing the most diverse topics, you could start a nice bonfire with during Easter.

November 2015; Cheryl Knight-Wilson, editor from Paranormal Underground Magazine, published one of mine articles “UFO Abductions; A Real Extraterrestrial Experience or a Secret Military Operation?” A childhood dream came true! Over the years Cheryl taught me the intricacies of editing, the use of headlines, creating magazine covers…which even lead in publishing my own magazine The Next Truth.

And now I have the privilege to present with you Paranormal Underground Magazine by giving you this one-time chance! 64 pages of the latest news from the paranormal world, tackling the topics that most interest paranormal enthusiasts, researchers, and investigators. Download the PDF version of the March issue of Paranormal Underground magazine NOW and FOR FREE!

Scientists are Conducting Fundamental Research with ‘Speed Machines’

Particle physicists claim they understand the universe, but the complexity of this surprising paradox behind our universe reveals to us that still 95 percent of the universe is yet not understood nor has it been seen directly. Mind dazzling indeed but if our universe would not contain e.g. entropy, wiggling particles possessing their own “wiggle-room” so to speak and slow, non-excited, as they seem to be, “hippy particles” as some of its fundamental components, we would not have the complex world we see today, including you and me.

Particles at atomic and subatomic levels posses a certain complexity whereby they can show a beautiful phenomena known as ‘murmuration’ which is the behavior exhibited when huge flocks of birds (starlings to be exact) in migration form shape-shifting flight patterns whereby it appears the involving of some kind of shared consciousness or central intelligence. Like these birds, subatomic particles can behave in a similar manner whereby it seems that they are orchestrated by some higher power. This can drive them into a dark structure that winds up being complex, when seen as a whole. But in reality, what we witness is the emergent patterns from each individual particle simply doing it darndest not to collide with the particles nearby.

However, finding plausible answers these days with the avalanche of information produced by many of today’s scientists due the experiments they are conducting, is not an easy task and thus I made an appointment with the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron in Hamburg, Germany in order to satisfy some of my childhood euphoria and curiosity concerning the new knowledge in advanced technologies even more. Arriving at the enormous campus of DESY, two sympathetic portiers directed me to building 1 where I met Dr. Thomas Zoufal, PhD.
After completing his PhD in physics at the University of Hamburg, Dr. Zoufal has committed himself to DESY’s PR-department in 2006 and has been tasked with since.

Even the complexity of research projects like Alps II (Any Light Particle Search) for instance, looks a little bit blurry in the beginning, Dr. Zoufal explains in understandable language and great detail the experiment with which particle physicists want to prove the existence of the hypothetical Axion-like particles that might be constituents of the mysterious dark matter but haven´t been seen so far. “There are very serious theories saying that they have to be there!” Dr. Zoufal says.

But the ‘Light-Through-The-Wall’ experiment, which hopefully will provide more answers to what dark matter could be, is only one of many projects of the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron. Accelerator technology, photon science, particle physics and astro-particle physics are DESY’s research interest. According to the website; “These four areas are the basis for mastering some complex challenges of the future.” And with a variety in research options and with its huge research infrastructures like the synchrotron radiation source PETRA III, DESY attracts more than 3000 guest researchers from over 40 countries every year who join DESY´s scientists in turning the research center into a big think tank while plowing through mountains of data, looking for the tiniest building blocks of matter that make up our world, developing innovative high-tech materials and searching for sustainable solutions and new technologies with new conceptual approaches for future energy supply, climate protection and healthcare.

Indeed, your insight and curiosity with the latest innovative technologies science has to offer these days in accelerator technology starts with one of the world’s leading accelerator centres: DESY.
