As I have announced some time previous, the upcoming issue of The Next Truth (May) is discussing war traumas, behavioral science, how to help a loved one who is suffering from PTSD, alternative solutions for dealing with PTSD, among others.
During the past two weeks I have spoken with several Neuro-Psychologists and (clinical) Psychologists and read a myriad of articles concerning Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The pro’s and con’s of medical and spiritual healing processes were indeed an interesting topic to discuss as well as trauma being the main cause for a foggy/altered reality. Still, that one particular question seems to be hard to answer; “Is it possible for people to experience unexplained phenomena, aka the paranormal, while being under extreme psychological pressure for a longer period?” (Think of those traumas created by war-, sexual-, domestic violence, kidnapping, among others)
When we think about it for a moment, it is remarkable to see that the brain is, somehow, capable of ‘choosing’ such a vivid form of processing the stress that is accompanied with PTSD. In this it would be an almost logical line of thought that this reality is as real as the sandwich you are eating during lunch. Right?
How do ‘you’ explain this vivid effect what seems to have a tremendous impact on people’s thinking and behaviour?
– 3 till 5 explanations will be published in the issue of May and if that is not cool enough, the person whose answer is published will receive a free PDF version of the May edition. www.magcloud.com
Can we sense what’s happening to loved ones thousands of miles away? Why are we, sometimes, certain of a caller’s identity the instant the phone rings? Do intuitive hunches contain information about future events? Is it possible to perceive information without the use of the ordinary senses? Can psychic or “psi” experiences be studied by science, or are they beyond the reach of rational understanding?”
There is absolutely no doubt about it that you have asked questions concerning the myriad unexplained events which seem to move in that particular spectrum we are not able to see with the naked eye. Many people believe that such “psychic phenomena” are rare talents or divine gifts. Others don’t believe they exist at all.
Even though these vivid nightmares of malevolent dark shadows are assigned to sleep paralysis, pre-cognitive knowledge to coincidence and ghostly figures to an abundant imagination and fear, there could be another rational explanation for these blobs and blips to overlap our (classical) reality. To get a clearer picture about what is it that we see fleeing from our peripheral vision, what has, or is, creating this variety in believes and how to pour all this in the research fields of parapsychology and cognitive science; The Next Truth contacted Dr. Neil Dagnall and Dr. Kenneth Drinkwater from the Manchester Metropolitan University.
Their upcoming research (Neuropsychological and Cognitive-Perceptual characteristics associated with Mediums and Psychics) as well as their previous research in the scientific fields of Psychology, Neuropsychology, Parapsychology and Cognitive Psychology, neither question the reality of these foggy realms nor the beliefs and/or experiences people have or had on the contrary! Together with their students, Dr. Dagnall and Dr. Drinkwater are studying the individual differences that exist between people to appraise cognitive processing and neurological correlates.

First of all, The Next Truth has made a new step in creating for you a flipbook https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/63052050/the-next-truth-january-2020 Happy reading 🙂
Secondly…for February issue The Next Truth has gathered several incredible scientific research articles for you in where scientists and citizen scientists are exploring and altering the well-known realms of the unknown.
Throughout history many have tried to wrap their minds around the question of what this foggy state of the mind is. But is this state, we seem to be stuck in, really this foggy? Is it an odd kind of an overlapping of different frames of space-time in where energy is forming its own density and, for us, recognizable objects? Is it possible that we are another state of reality? This present moment what you are experiencing right now, is this consciousness and is this as close as you get to reality? Well, these are some tricky questions! And, probably, some of the deepest questions you have ever asked in your life.
Indeed, the reality of the yet unknown is by definition a strange dimension.[Top]

“My name is legion, for we are many!”
By Maria Anna van Driel, www.nexttruth.com
Johann Georg Faust, William Shakespeare, Leonardo Davinci, Dante Alighieri… what is their connection? Does it lay in their work which is speaking of an enchanter feeling rising a connection between different deities which they named Diabolus or Mephistopheles? Or is the musical speech they heard while a fine-tuned insanity was slowly being applied to their worlds, in a spiritual duality? A world in where an addiction of scattered beauty rose from a hallucinating imprisonment of the soul whereas thoughts are being whipped out … or at least, neutralized as they are blazed away in an unknown and darkened labyrinth. Where their minds trapped inside a “realm” of those who have rejected spiritual values by means of violence or malice against superficial human sanity which made them a wanderer? An einzelgänger who gained the powers of walking a mystical path of creation and transformation of the brilliancy their vivid imagination provided them?
Totally obsessed, as we are these days, with being friendly to the fire lying between the two trees of life, it seems we are in the cross-hairs of this invisible war in separating us from the love of Jesus. His love is there for those with ears. But as leaves blushing at the sight of autumn, a malicious dream is showing you a way out of your remote mazes in life.
“Thou winged seeds, where they lie cold and low, each like a corpse within its grave, until thine azure sister of the spring shall blow”
Diabolus, Satan, Satanael, Lucifer or, as some believe, Mithras a solar deity and bore the title of Sol Invictus, “Invincible Sun”; is everything you know about the opponent of God really wrong?! Are Demons nothing more than the unsolved mysteries of the mind and reveal themselves in the existence of an unbearable puzzle provided by the Basaltic? Solving this puzzle, in this you will succeed or fail … but whatever the outcome, the responsibility of your choice is yours only to bear.
Who is the devil? Is this creature a noble knight, understanding the balanced melodies in the speech and the teachings of poetry causing you to ride with him? I this creature a passionate knight, as he sharing with you the beauty of infinity what is mirroring his emporium?
As this creature is showing you his fragile heart, you will be swallowed by his sprightly and tender dance. In a trance you will be swept of your feet as you reveal to him your deepest secrets. You wait and wait for him to return as you slowly understand; he has caught you in the blinding beauty of his fiery existence.
According to the bible, the devil was once beautiful and was full of beauty and wisdom as his name was Lucifer, meaning “Day Star.” As God dressed him in the finest jewels and placed him on the Holy Mountain, the devil decided he wanted to be above his creator. God disagreed and kicked him out of heaven to Earth and it has been a battle ever since.
When the peace of our world was threatened by this great demon, humanity had no hope of prevailing against such a potent force of violence and despair. He sought to destroy this world by inducing drought, thirst and starvation. Being in our darkest hours, the great hero Mithras sprang forth from the stone, or the navel, of the world and took up the orb of the Cosmos in his protective embrace. From his bow, he let fly an arrow that struck the earth and from this wound came a renewing spring, which rejuvenated the Earth. Still the threat of destruction persisted and with the assistance of the moon-mother, Selene, the vital fluids of life were scattered in a gigantic bull on earth.
Mithras burned away the withered trees and forced the great bull (the beast) out in the open. He captured the bull and dragged it underground into the bowels of the Earth where he wrestled it and plunged his dagger into its chest. Trees sprang from the wound, bees were born from its blood and all of the earth was rejuvenated by this great sacrifice.
In the beginning God created time (the beginning), space (the heavens), and matter (Earth) and said; “Let there be light.”
Looking at the Universe today we see that it is expanding and cooling, meaning that all the matter in it was closer together (as the radiation in it was hotter) in the past. And if we had the possibility to go back to a sufficiently early time, we will find that the density was high enough as the temperature was hot enough that it would be an impossible task forming neutral atoms without them immediately being blasted apart! Then, as the Universe cooled down through a phase of expanding … neutral atoms were formed for the first time.
“He had two sons, an older one named ‘Satanael’ and a younger one named ‘Christ.’ Satanael had superior rank to Christ in Heaven, and sat at God’s right hand until he became dissatisfaction with his subservient position, lusted after power, angered God, and was cast out of heaven.”
Can we see this behavior in a similar manner an electron-positron pair can be created by that strange transformation? A transformation whereby a tiny spark of light started to glow as it gained a form of static electricity what made it enter a state in where it had the ability to copy itself in a mirrored manner which, when looking at the electron, should be the positron.
Hum, perhaps we can explain the origin of this malevolent creature. An ancient creature we call Satan, seeking to seduce humans into falsehood and sin (sine) by providing the beauty of expressing the melodies of the heart in words after the smoke of desire has cleared the skies of the imagination. A vivid dream in where a sweet poison has spawn from a future illusion whereas it is creating an enchant feeling of false love where you can be free from danger or threat.
According to theoretical physicist John Archibald Wheeler (July 9, 1911 – April 13, 2008), the mirrored version of the electron could be hiding itself, in what we know today from particle physics, the proton. But if he was really serious about his own comment is still unknown.
Still, even if Theoretical physicist J. Wheeler was joking concerning the behavior of the electron’s anti-particle, a teaching from the bible did rose into my mind; “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” So, behaving as a particle, the electron prevents the consciousness from realizing that it is part of a larger whole where it is zipping in all directions through this empty pitch black place whereas it is bouncing off on magnetic fields. And even being ‘one’ electron, it has now the behavior of looking like being at million places at once due the fact, we are looking at its behavior in a 2D manner while it is moving in a 3 or 4D space. But when the electron behaves as a wave, consciousness becomes aware of its existence outside the human mind, which makes OBE (Out of Body Experience) and NDE (Near Death Experience) possible.
So, if the electron represents ‘matter’ and its complementary counterpart, the positron, represents ‘antimatter’, can we speak of a, in a scientific but cryptic description by the bible, of both a galactic duality and a spiritual one?
Can we truly apply this biblical story to such a particle as the electron-positron pair? Or do we have to read ‘his’ existence in the astrological and mythological versions of how this ancient creature was born?[Top]

Being close in finishing the September issue of The Next Truth, I am lucky…really lucky…that I may say that the October issue is halfway in its articles… all these articles do give you a free passage to the science of several mysterious realms which might be the cause of those unexplained, creepy chills we experience every now and then.
However, working on the October issue I came in contact with the interesting work of Prof. Neil Dragnall and Prof. Kenneth Drinkwater (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Associate Prof. Tok Thompson (University of Southern California) among others.
Due reading their theories and research findings I was thinking of the following…it is being said that when a ghost, spirit or demonic force is in the near, your hair is standing up straight due the static electrical charge it is moving in and/or with. But what if there is another reason for our hair to act this crazy? What if there is a more Earthly explanation and lies more in the science of Anthropology and psychology? Say, when a dog or cat sees a rival it will blow itself up, their hair is standing up in order to look bigger and more dangerous.
Now whether we like it or not, once upon a time we where Neanderthals and completely covered with hair, or fur, to protect us against the weather… among others. Really sh*tt* when you have a bad hair-day and the brush /comb is not yet been invented 🤪
No seriously, what if the modern human does still possess this primordial ability of blowing ourselves up, so to speak, as soon as we are in a stress or dangerous situation? What if this is just a natural response of the body we forgot over time?
Indeed, an idea as such could be for some a ridiculous one but imagine you walking home from work and you are passing a dark allay. You will feel a little bit stressy due the fact of you not knowing what is hiding in the dark corners of this ally. This feeling of fear, could it be primordial…a left over from ancient times in order to sense if there is a predator or not and then to flee or fight? I guess the Neanderthal version of us would make itself bigger by blowing up its hair (fur) hoping to scare away any creepy and hungry predator.
I think it might be possible that our body is still reacting as so but that we have forgot about a function as such due e.g. the many evolutionary phases we have gone through… we have forgotten that we still can and do. Of course this doesn’t rules out all paranormal phenomena.[Top]

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, it is tough not to get freaked out when you are alone and hear something bump in the night or even hear a voice…maybe calling your name. My latest experience from the realms of the beyond will freak you out so it is best to read it with someone. Preferably a friend and not a stranger you have decided to creep up with behind your computer screen.
My house was built in 1850. It is a single family home, wood frame setting on a concrete block foundation. I have been living here for about 8 years. Of all the weird things that I have seen and heard in this house this and the one of the singing girl, is one event what me got highly exited or better said…a little bit spooked. It was a normal Thursdays evening. My husband, who works as an ambulance driver, was on his nightshift and the children where visiting their friends… yes, mommy-time!
It had to be around 10 O’clock in the evening when I finished working on my latest article. Still, even I was the only person in the house, every now and then I had that creepy feeling that something was about to happen. Because it was my time off I did not really want to pay that much attention to this feeling. But as many of you know, the unseen forces roaming the realms of the unknown do not look at whether someone is working nor has a moment of free time. However, I closed most of the internet taps on my laptop which I was using for writing my article and went on the hunt for… popcorn!
While I was searching for a few episodes of Ghost Adventures on YouTube, the corn kernels where making that familiar popping sound and the smell of fresh micro-waved popcorn was slowly filling the kitchen and drifting into the living room. PING! Yes, my sweet addiction is ready… I quickly sprinkled some extra sugar on this delicacy before it cooled and then … feet up and getting spooked during an episode of Ghost Adventures. Oh, how unhealthy are these moments of spare time 🙂
Like I said, it was a normal Thursday evening. Nothing out of the ordinary happened that day still this funny feeling of almost a ‘be aware’ feeling, slowly got stronger what made me, strangely enough, look frequently, and only, in the direction of my sons bed room which is across a small hallway at the front door.
Several weeks ago the light bulb of the ceiling lamp burned out. I yet have not seen the spirit to climb up to a ladder and put in a new light bulb and so, there is no light in this, now creepy looking, little hall way. Only the light from the lamp on my desk was making the closet and my son’s white painted bed room door visible but in a dimmed manner.
Due this nagging feeling I got a little bit restless and so, while Ghost Adventures was still playing in the background, I started to surf the internet. After proximus 30 minutes I came across the website of Dr. D. Radin who is doing interesting research of how e.g. PSI works and what these talents can tell us about the nature of reality. Via the form on his website people have the opportunity to ask him questions and so, I did. Surprisingly Dr. Radin emailed me back within 20 minutes with an answer to my question. Our email traffic kept going for about one and a half hour and I forgot all about the strange feeling I had. But it was far from being over…the, to the naked eye, invisible realms still had a few things in mind for me.
I had not noticed it but while I was in conversation with Dr. Radin my two dogs had lain down in this small hallway. I should at this point mention that this hallway contains a total of five doors and two small built-in rooms…one for the washing machine and one for the toilet. Their K9 bodies and heads flat against the ground, their eyes wide open and staring at me as if they where waiting for the moment to jump up and bark any intruder out the house. It give me a charged shill to see them laying in the dark and being such an alert state. I wonder if me getting charged that way has caused it to manifest itself this strong shortly after. However, hoping that my dogs would warn me for any unseen danger approaching, I clicked on a new You Tube episode from Ghost Adventures… I was ready again to absorb their creepy experiences while eating my popcorn. But it was not the investigation Zak and his team where conducting that was going to make me jump out of my chair.
It was about 00:10 as I felt a dens energy field building up in this small hallway. Right in that moment one of my dogs, the female, stood up and lay down on the sofa in the living room staring in the direction of the hallway. My other dog, which is a strong 45 kilo male, did not move and kept staring at me. I took a quick look at my female dog; she was okay but was licking my hand intensively. I gave her a pat on her head and walked over to my dog that was still lying in the hall. The air did felt dens and slightly electric but I thought that I was feeling my dogs’ alertness and did not thought of this being something or…someone else.
With the comforting knowledge of my dogs being alright, I sat back in my chair and rewind the still running Ghost Adventures episode. 00:15, I heard my dog in the hallway making a soft sighing sound and instinctively I turned my vision to my right into the direction of where my dog was. It took me a couple of seconds to realize that I could not see my son’s bedroom door anymore. Something was blocking the view. I took a second look and saw that the toilet door was wide open! This door has being closed all the evening. Now the creepy part was, I have not heard any sound that could have indicated that a door was being opened and still…this toilet door stood wide open! Why only this door when there are four more? Well, to that question I gained a surprising answer some 45 minutes later.
With astonishment I was gazing at this wide open door, “WHAT?!…HOW?…WHY?”
I walked into the small dim hallway, closed the toilet door and felt the hairs on my arms standing straight up…my whole body started to get highly charged and felt extremely heavy, as if I was pulled to the ground by an enormous strong magnetic force. As I walked out of the hallway with the intention of calling my husband and report the event happening in that moment, I felt an energy field building up its strength and growing rapidly in size. It gave me the chills for sure! I called my dog with me, picked up the phone and dialed the mobile number of my husband. When he picked up his only words where, “I will call you back…we are standing with a patient who is dead!” Then he disconnected the phone connection.
Meanwhile this energy field was growing in strength. It felt as a charged blob not knowing where it was or what happened to him. I say ‘him’ because I could read this energy as a male person. Then the phone rang, it was my husband. Logically he wanted to explain what he witnessed right away but before he could describe what he has seen I had to interrupt him because I wanted to know if what he had just experienced had a direct connection with what had happened in my home. So, I described the person who was standing in this charged blob of energy which was now slowly fading away…becoming less charged.
“A man slightly bigger than the average length…Caucasian… dark blond hair…cardiac arrest” A couple of second of silence on the other side of the phone connection and then my husband said, “Um…100% correct!”
“Well, he is here but is slowly fading. This man was ripped out of life in an instant and now he does not understand where he is and what he has become.”
Over the phone my husband explained that this man had a cardiac arrest while, together with his wife, cycling home from a party they just where. His wife was in the front and heard a strange noise behind her. As she looked behind her she saw her husband lying against one of the trees of the forest they where cycling through. While she was calling for medical help, he was in the process of crossing over….standing before the gates of the hereafter and stepping into an infinite realm.
At one point my husband told me, we where still talking on the phone, that due this cardiac arrest the man had wet himself. And when I heard his words crawling through the telephone receiver, I suddenly understood why the toilet door stood wide open instead of one of the other doors in the hallway. This man made himself known by acting out on the last thing his brain had recorded, him wetting himself and not being able to do something about it.
Looking back on this remarkable event, one can think that a poltergeist was starting to be active. But instead of having a malicious spirit in the house, it turns out to be someone who was lost for a moment due the fact he was unaware of already being in the process of crossing over. This man just needed some time to understand what had happened and adjust to his new form of existence.
Two days later…my husband and I where sitting in the living room, drinking a cup of coffee while watching a movie on Netflix. Without any announcement in sound or charged fields, a small decorative tomahawk axe, that is hanging on bedroom closet, jumped off its hook and hit the wooden floor of the bedroom with a loud bang. As I quickly turned to where this loud sound was coming from, I could just see how the two decorative knives, hanging next to the tomahawk ax, moved in an unnatural way.
If this event is directly connected to the man who died from a cardiac arrest or someone else is making itself known I do not know. But that curious events do take place in my house, that is for sure![Top]
