Scientists must be free to learn, to speak and to challenge anything new and to fail. WAIT, WHAT? NO! Yes, scientist must have the freedom to fail an experiment or two in the same way you did in school failing that particular math or literature test. But as I have once said to a close friend of mine, who is a scientist, “you can only fail when you give up before even trying“.
So, even a failed hypothesis teaches us something. The best way I can explain that is through my own adventures as a science journalist working in the midst of scientists from all over the world and from varied institutes.
As I started writing as a science journalist several years ago, and yes, you may start laughing right now but I was scared, really scared! I was scared of these super intellectuals with their big brains, their big books, their big, unfamiliar words and titles I had never hear off before. But as conversations and interviews with these brilliant scientists from the CERN, the Max Planck Institute, SETI, the University of Harvard, Oxford, Warwick, Colorado Springs just to give you some examples, unfolded, I quickly learned that these brilliant scientists were nervous, even afraid to talk to me. Maybe even thinking; “Oh my god, she is going to misinterpret everything I say, rip me apart before I am truly death and in the process my research!”
This idea bothered me immensely. Knowing that many of our scientists are writing down their best ideas and then hide it away in the most remote drawer they can find because it is too “farfetched”. I felt I had to do something with this. So, I set aside my fear for this feeling of failing and started talking to these scientists via e.g Skype and email…no talk about complex research findings or computer data from new experiments.
It took me a long time before I gained the trust of some of these genius minds after all, I am a science journalist. The words of a journalist have a tremendous power… my words are power which can spit out venom or can inspire a nation and invite people to the wonderland of science. Slowly it became understood that I also came from this world in where you are constantly under attack, and that I had personally felt the outrage of being put away in this labeled cube.
I was extremely surprised by the many responses I received of which the content ranged from; “Shit, I have killed my laptop!”… “Today I let the laser device explode 🙁 “ … “The weather is foggy at the airport.” But besides talking about the everyday things, some of them told me about the ideas they had in their field of work. And I was amazed about their open-minded theories, their creativity in critical thinking and the advanced ideas they had…have! I asked myself, could I be a voice for those who were being silenced by this fear of failing. Shortly after The Next Truth magazine was born and I set goal to use it as a new platform to give scientist and citizen scientists the change to talk about the importance of advanced theories and experiments in new science.
I am of the opinion that it is critical, absolutely critical, that our scientists are free to undertake their work, free to collaborate with other scientists, free to speak to the media and free to speak to the public.
Scientists must be free to explore unconventional or controversial topics. They must be free to challenge the thinking of the day and to feel free to present uncomfortable or inconvenient truths, because that’s how scientists push boundaries and pushing boundaries is, after all, what science is all about.
The Next Truth is a young and energetic magazine covering both systems of acquiring knowledge that use observation, experimentation, and replication to describe and explain natural phenomena known as Science and Noetic Sciences, a multidisciplinary field that brings objective scientific tools and techniques together with subjective inner knowing. In other words … Where Science and Myth Meet.
Her contributors are open-minded experts and citizen scientists who show you what it is like to be Alice in wonderland. By combining ‘accepted’ science and the still ‘unexplained events’ in life they let you understand their progressive ideas and groundbreaking experiments in new science and invite YOU into the wonderland of science.
Revealing some of their thoughts and research they discuss various topics like e.g. new laws in Physics, Theoretical Physics merging with advanced Engineering, Theology explained with Particle Physics, the connection between Physical Chemistry and Human Evolution, the purpose of black holes, the Big Bang, and the origin of the Universe we are swirling in.
All with the biggest philosophical question; ‘What if…?!
What to expect? … the most intriguing stories, extraordinary interviews, amazing stories, mind dazzling articles, advanced dimensional research, and much more…
Even new and varied discoveries are leading to more questions and theories each day, the mystery of human consciousness is slowly unfolding… will it reveal the answer to the one question; Where do we come from?
The contributors of The Next Truth, who are by far, our bravest pioneers in this new field of science, are trying to find a plausible answer to secrets, which the Universe is still holding.[Top]
WOW, this is extraordinary amazing!
While the February issue of The Next Truth is ready to go online within 2 weeks, the issues of March and April are already containing the most intriguing stories, articles and interviews.
Many thanks for contributing your theories, researches and personal thoughts to the general public, you are by far out the most bravest and openminded scientists I know.
We need you!… The world needs you!
The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet
(some of the contributors…)
Four years ago, I become really in touch with my inner nerd due the teachings of the myriad scientists that I was working with. As I started writing as a science journalist I experienced a bit of what it must have been like to be Alice in Wonderland. And I was scared, really scared! I was scared of these super intellectuals with their big brains, their big books and their big, unfamiliar words. But as conversations and interviews unfolded, I experienced what Alice must have when she went down that rabbit hole and saw that door to a whole new world playing with my curiosity. That is just how I felt as I had those conversations with these open-minded scientists. I was amazed at the ideas that they had, and I wanted others to experience this wonderland as well. I believe the key to opening that door is great communication.
The general public is desperately in needs for great communication from our scientists and engineers in order to change the world. These supper-minds are the ones that are tackling our grandest challenges, from energy to environment to health care, among others. But if the public does not know about it and does not understand it, then the work is not done. I believe it is our responsibility as science journalists, to have these interactions. It is our task to blunt the jargon, which is a barrier to many, into the understanding of progressive ideas and groundbreaking experiments in new science, and invite the general public into the wonderland of science.
Science journalists are making these ideas 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.” Describing the accelerated thoughts of our scientists by using single and readable sentences the audience can key into if they get a bit lost in the complexity of scientific research findings, is the key role of science journalism.[Top]
YES! … The first issue of The Next Truth is online! 😃
Thank you all for your efforts and interesting contributions.
In the October issue of The Next Truth we take a look at why science fears the paranormal, if black holes can convert entropic time, if particle physics can explain some theological questions and if the sterile neutrino can point out to dark matter. Also in this issue, a quick insight in the book “Losing the Nobel Prize and a science-fiction story both written by well known scientists.
I hope you enjoy it!
The Next Truth; a young and energetic magazine is looking for contributors … YOU! (firstname.lastname@example.org for submitting)
Open-minded scientists and non-scientists who combine ‘accepted’ science and the still unexplained events in life by means of revealing some of their thoughts which discuss various topics like new laws in Physics, Theoretical Physics merging with advanced Engineering, Theology explained with Particle Physics, the connection between Physical Chemistry and Human Evolution, the Big Bang, and the origin of the Universe we are swirling in.
All with the biggest philosophical question; ‘What if…?!
Some of The Next Truth contributors are…
The Universe, is it truly possible that it contains an invisible and self-evolving force from a pre-big bang event and has the opportunity to let intelligent life-forms communicate with us with nearly the speed of light and over great distances?
When two black holes collide, can they provoke an effect in creating a possible Big Bang whereas smaller black holes are reversing the second law of thermodynamics by using the first law of thermodynamics?
And what if you fall into one?!
This mysterious dark domain is the territory of erratic behaviors and silent explosions and is indeed a remarkable place to look at.
And by doing so, inescapable thoughts will pop-up … thoughts about if it would be possible that it contains an invisible and self-evolving force having the opportunity to let the future creates the past which than creates the future again.
