In a universe so vast, is there any hope of us traveling fast enough so that we could visit the far-off realms of space? Will we ever be able to plant a flag in the most distant quadrants of the cosmos? At this point in time we may be as far from reaching other stars as Leonardo da Vinci was from realizing an airplane but it has not stopped scientists from imagining the theoretical possibilities of interstellar travel.
Even time travel is somewhat unique in science fiction, it has long been the Holy Grail for modern science. Some say we will never be able to travel in time, while others believe we are close to achieving the impossible. But what if time travel already exists? According to general relativity – this might actually work.
But when it comes to our understanding of the Universe, general relativity may not be the final word. Theoretical physicist and Professor Emeritus Ronald Lawrence Mallett says there is another way what makes traveling into the past a real option.
Did we already tackle the energy barrier, jumped through time and created new universe branches out into the future?
I am your host Maria Anna van Driel and you are listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”. This week I am speaking with Theoretical physicist and expert on Albert Einstein’s theories, Professor Emeritus Ronald Lawrence Mallett and discuss with him why and how Einstein developed his theories and Professor Mallett’s personal interests for theoretical physics But also the true science of time travel, why fundings are needed and the importance of STEM subjects.

With Flat Earther, Mark Sargent
The flat Earth model speaks of the Earth being shaped as a plane or disk. Many ancient cultures subscribed to a flat Earth cosmography, including Greece until the classical period, the Bronze Age and Iron Age civilizations of the Near East until the Hellenistic period, India until the Gupta period (the early centuries AD), and China until the 17th century.
In the early 4th century BC Plato wrote about a spherical Earth, and by about 330 BC his former student Aristotle provided evidence for the spherical shape of the Earth on empirical grounds. Knowledge of the spherical Earth gradually began to spread beyond the Hellenistic world from then on.
Modern Flat-Earthers claim that Antarctica is a giant icy wall designed to keep us from falling off our disc-shaped world. Or, to prevent us from finding out the hard truth that we don’t live on a globe. To back up this theory, they claim that no one has ever crossed the whole continent.
After digging through dozens of blog posts and watching hours of mind dazzling YouTube videos I still could not wrap my mind around this theory. So, I thought I should ask a true Flat-Earther and explain some of the arguments that a huge number of people use to justify their belief in a flat-Earth.
I am your host Maria Anna van Driel…and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet” … and this week I am speaking with Flat-Earther Mark Sargent about … if NASA is truly spending all of its multi-billion-dollar budget on thousands of illustrators and graphic designers?[Top]
With author and UFO researcher, Philip Mantle
“The UFO subject as we know it came to the public’s attention on June 24th, 1947 when private pilot Kenneth Arnold, flying over the Cascade Mountains in the USA, witnessed a formation of objects that he could not identify. Speaking later to a journalist regarding the encounter, Arnold was asked how this formation of objects moved through the air, and his response was: “Like a skipping saucer across a pond.” From that moment on, the coined phrase ‘Flying Saucer’ was born.”
This is what author writes in his book, ‘INTRODUCING UFOs – A Young Person’s Guide’. Philip Mantle, the former Director of Investigations for the British UFO Research Association and the MUFON Representative for England, has selected several UFO cases, and their histories from the 1940’s onwards, and placed them underneath a magnifying glass for you to explore. But these documentations written in his book are not meant to be in-depth, but rather to illustrate the case in as brief a way as possible, without missing the most notable points.
I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”…. and this week I am speaking with the founder of ‘Flying Disk Press’ Philip Mantle, who is a long-standing UFO researcher and author from West Yorkshire, UK,…. about… why are we still in the dark when it comes to extraterrestrial life visiting our planet and which of their advanced technologies has already applied to Earthly technologies.[Top]

Where do we descend from? An interstellar civilization dwelling the geometric realms located in the backyard of the universe or, perhaps from a shrew-like creature that lived more than 150 million years ago?
Evolution is the theory in biology postulating that the various types of species on Earth have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations.
Even though more than 2 million existing species of organisms have been named and described; many more remain to be discovered, from 10 to 30 million, according to some estimates.
All living creatures are related by descent from common ancestors. Reptiles, amphibians, and fishes seem to share an ancestors what is known as “aquatic worms” that lived 600 million years ago, and plants derive from bacteria-like microorganisms that originated more than 3 billion years ago.
The diversity of the living world is staggering. The flora and fauna we are familiar with, has an ancestor but…what is their ancestor and, where did it went?[Top]

“There you are, nervously waiting for the journalists to step on your terrain, to invade your work-space and maybe even jump into the darkest corners of your private life. Then they arrive … looking like a pack of hungry wolves, armed with all kind of terrible questions, looking you straight in the eye and impenetrable in what they really think. Microphones and cameras are being unpacked and put into position, and not only the gazing eyes of the cameras are aimed at you…also the strict looks of the Journalist, camera-man and those of the whole world…are aimed directly at you!”
Okay, that scenario would scare the BLEEP out of me too. But we know that you are feeling a bit uncomfortable … nervous and maybe thinking; “Oh my god, they are going to misrepresent everything I say, rip me apart before I am truly death and in the process my research findings!”
As an investigative science journalist I have to say, YES…I am armed with the most diverse questions…which I WILL ask you! YES…I will lay your personality under a magnifying glass, because the general public is eager to know you and the research you are conducting. But NO, I am neither going to rip you nor your research findings to pieces.
Clinically speaking, the aim of a science journalist is not to obstruct the communication bridge but to render very detailed, specific, and often jargon-laden information provided by scientists into a form that non-scientists can understand and appreciate while still communicating the information accurately.
Science journalists are making sure that your ideas are accessible to the general public which is not the same as dumbing it down. Instead, as Einstein said, “Make everything as simple as possible, but no simpler.”
Words have power, words are power, words can be your power!
You can inspire a nation and invite people into the wonderland of science.
Ladies and gentlemen, let us make that our goal for 2021 because the world needs you…badly.[Top]
12 months ago we walked into the year 2020 not having the slightest idea about these terrifying, dark times we where about to encounter.
Today, a deep psychological fear for this biological parasite, aka COVID-19, has gripped the world population resulting in an avalanche of (conspiracy) theories passing the revue… this ever since the World Health Organization recognized this health attacking virus as a global pandemic.
What is its origin? Where is it traveling towards and when does it all stop?
Paramedic, Thomas van Brunschot, explains how he is experiencing this fear inducing pandemic from both a professional and personal point of view as his mother (93), my mother-in-law, is also being diagnosed with Corona.

Even though we have learned that Marie Curie, a physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactive decay, was the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize in Physics and became the first person to receive a second Nobel Prize in Chemistry…the presence of female scientists spans the earliest times of the history of science wherein they have made significant contributions.

The involvement of women in the field of medicine has been recorded in several early civilizations. An ancient Egyptian physician, Merit-Ptah… who lived circa 2700 BC and described in an inscription as “chief physician”, is the earliest known female scientist named in the history of science. Agamede was cited by Homer as a healer in ancient Greece before the Trojan War and Agnodice was the first female physician to practice legally in fourth century BC.
Gender roles were largely deterministic in the 18th century and women made substantial advances in science.
Then, during the nineteenth century, women were excluded from most formal scientific education, but they began to be admitted into learned societies during this period. Forty women have been awarded the Nobel Prize between 1901 and 2010. Seventeen women have been awarded the Nobel Prize in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine.
I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”, and this week I am speaking with Global Young Academy alumni and cofounder and the founder of Women In Science Without Borders, Professor Dr. Amal Amin about the important role of girls and women in science.[Top]

“The ghost in the machine”, many people have heard this term at least one time in their life. It was a paper which was written by Coventry University lecturer Vic Tandy and published in April 1998 by the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research.
Working alone in the lab one night, Tandy suddenly gained the feeling he was being watched. He claimed a dark, shadowy figure appeared in the corner of his vision. When Tandy turned to face this shadowy figure…it vanished.
To many, these shadowy figures are better known as the Shadow People.
They are being skests as a malevolent and creepy phenomenon and have being reported by witnesses as human-like shaped dark shadows having ill intentions standing alongside your bed…watching you.
Even these eerie phenomena’s have being reported for decades, it is not your mind simply playing tricks on you. There might be a more simpler and scientific explanation for things like ghosts, demonic hauntings and…shadow people.
I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”, and this week I am speaking with clinical psychologist, Professor Brian Sharpless about the most creepiest sleep disorders, what treatments are there and…how deeply these disorders are woven into the paranormal.
Are those things you see in the darkness more than just a shadow?[Top]
Every time you see, hear, smell or taste something new, you experience this through the brain. Whether you feel hot or cold, think, talk, laugh or cry, remember or forget something, it all happens through the brain. And when the rest of your body ‘sleeps’, your brain is still working at full speed.
Why does the brain accept a conspiracy theory as fact? Has our brain undergone a new form of evolution by observing natures behaviour? And how can complex things like emotion, language, (new) memory and consciousness play out in a physical mass…even after someone is declared brain death?
The brain is the most complex structure in the universe. It is considered as the command center of the whole body. Despite several major breakthroughs in brain research, scientists around the world are still amazed by our fascinating ‘little gray cells’.
Join us on an awe-inspiring journey and discover the most advanced organ in the universe: the mysterious brain.[Top]
