Do you have the guts to fail?

Carpe Diem! Yes, it could be very frightening because it’s a mean world out there but you only live once so do what you feel passionate about. Take chances don’t be afraid to fail. Go outside the box. Don’t be afraid to go and think outside the box, and don’t be afraid to fail big. But remember, dreams without goals are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment. So, have dreams but have goals and understand that to achieve these goals you must apply discipline and consistency every single day.

We all have different talents some of you are medical doctors, some lawyers, some scientists, some educators, some nurses. True desire lies in the heart, It’s that itch that you have whatever it is you want to do. So claim it, work hard to get it and when you get it, reach back and pull someone else up. Don’t just aspire to make a living…aspire to make a difference!

I found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks. There is no passion to be found playing small and settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. I am sure, people told you to make sure you have something to fall back on. But if I’m going to fall I don’t want to fall ‘back’ on anything, I want to fall ‘forward’, figure at least this way I will see what I am going to hit. Falling forward? This is what I mean; Thomas Edison conducted 1,000 failed experiments because the 1,000 and first was the light bulb. Fall forward because every failed experiment is one step closer to success. You have got to take risks. And I am sure you have probably heard that before either. But why is that so important?

I got two reasons first you will fail…at some point in your life except you will lose, and you will suck at something there is no doubt about it. Embrace it because it’s inevitable!

(I was holding up a film camera) 

As a journalist I failed so many times. Elevator-pitch after elevator-pitch, poor interviews and hundreds of article submissions gaining the same response saying, “Thank you for your submission, you will be hearing from us.” I didn’t get the job but here is the thing…I didn’t quit. I didn’t fall back instead I continued to fail and fail and fail. It didn’t matter because you know what…if you hang around the barbershop long enough, sooner or later, you will get a haircut. The point is…do you have the guts to fail?

My second point about failure; if you don’t fail you are not even trying to get something you never had. You have to do something you never did. Imagine you are on your deathbed and standing around your deathbed are the ghosts representing your unfulfilled potential. The ghosts of the ideas you never acted on, the talents you didn’t use and they are angry, disappointed and upset. They say; “We came to you because you could have brought us to life and now we have to go to the grave together.” So, I ask you today…how many ghosts are going to be around your bed when your time comes?

You got to get out there! You got to give everything you got whether it is your time, your talent, your prayers or your treasures because you will never see a u-haul behind a hearse.

Your life will never be a straight path because taking risks is not just about going for a job…it’s also about knowing what you know and what you don’t know. It is about being open to people into ideas and the chances you meet the people you might learn from. Never hold back, give everything you got! And when you fall throughout life, maybe even tonight after a few glasses of champagne, remember this…fall forward.

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 magazine

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.
