The exact definition of AI is hotly debated and there are already many fantastic explanations of AI on the internet but broadly speaking, AI is advanced statistics and applied mathematics which harnesses new advances in computing power and the explosion of available data to give computers new powers of inference, recognition, choice and, eventually, possessing an awareness of its own consciousness.
Will future AI really be able to do so?
Well, the first thing that is important to understand is that all that exists, whether seen or unseen, when it is broken down into its simplest and most basic form of energy, consists of a rate of frequency. To begin to comprehend the nature of Consciousness, and to directly experience an ‘Expanding Consciousness’ through increasing ones personal frequencies, one must go beyond flat linear thinking, thought addiction and stop accepting everything one has been told by others as fact and truth.
Will AI be able to train its own ‘mind’, step into the realm of direct cognition and higher sensory perceptual experiences what then allows it to perceive things as they really are and not what it, perhaps, wishes them to be?
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 Partner & Trainer in accelerating thinking at Council for Human Development Swiss Association, Anna K. Hiltensberger and Founder, Director and CEO at Consciousness Coin, Kern Frost about how we can learn to expand our consciousness and if this is the future bridge to build between the human mind and AI?
‘Flabbergasted’… that is how many high sensitive people react when watching people squeezing themselves into the most craziest positions while, for instance, pressing their fingers tightly to their Temple area. Being at a young age, you might think that these people are trying to reduce a headache or maybe their hand-eye coordination is not communicating that well in that moment. Not to mention the eerie look in their eyes what seems to come straight from the series “The Addams family”. Odd as it might sound but these people want you to read their minds because you are a highly sensitive person.
Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, is a term coined by psychologist Elaine Aron. According to Aron’s theory, HSPs are a subset of the population who are high in a personality trait known as ‘sensory-processing sensitivity’, or SPS. Those with high levels of SPS display increased emotional sensitivity, stronger reactivity to both external and internal stimuli—pain, hunger, light, and noise—and have a complex inner life.
Indeed, being a highly sensitive person can come with many challenges. But to label ones sensitivity as a disorder….?
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 Mary Willemsen who is a holistic therapist and dimensional researcher from the Netherlands … about what it means to be a high sensitive person and…how to survive today’s harsh world. Do you truly have to grow steel elbows?[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]
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.

“The NBC News has put it bluntly Covid models predicted devastation in Africa, but the reality is starkly different”, says J. A. Jones Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University, Adrian Bejan.
As of 24 March 2020, more than 63.090.470 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in more than 190 countries and territories, resulting in 1.465.415 deaths and 40.366.250 recoveries. An avalanche of theories have passed the revue ever since the World Health Organization recognized this health attacking virus as a global pandemic.
What is its origin? Where is it traveling and when does it all stop?
Even though many tent to think that COVID-19 is a young virus, the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of all corona-viruses is, according to Wikipedia, estimated to have existed as far as 8000 BCE, although some models place the common ancestor as far back as 55 million years or more, implying long term coevolution with bat and avian species. The most recent common ancestor of the alpha-corona virus line has been placed at about 2400 BCE, of the beta-corona virus line at 3300 BCE, of the gamma-corona virus line at 2800 BCE, and of the delta-corona virus line at about 3000 BCE.
Can we merge this historic human story with an unexpected discovery of a new mental ‘connection’ between two previously disconnected physical phenomena? Can we predict the travel path of COVID-19? J. A. Jones Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University, Adrian Bejan, says we can.
In the attached PDF Prof. A. Bejan, who has made contributions to modern thermodynamics and developed what he calls the constructal law, supports the prediction he made in March 2020 concerning the travel-path of COVID-19 and why Africa was relatively untouched by the corona virus.[Top]
With author Lynn Russell
Are we, in some unexplainable manner, 100% aware of this final journey we take in the moment death is medically declared? Or is it just the mind playing tricks with you?
Traditionally, death has been determined by the medical profession using basic methods. These methods took the form of using either a heart or lung functioning criteria for death. To declare ones death, physicians would ‘feel for the pulse, listen for breathing, hold a mirror before the nose to test for condensation, and looked to see if the pupils were fixed.
But, as medical technology developed, a gap began to form between traditional cardiopulmonary standards and our conceptions of death. The spirit world became both an accepted fact for many and a topic for myriad scientific researchers.
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 author of “The Wonder of Your” Lynn Kathleen Russell about if Near death and Out of Body Experiences are our connection with this vast space we have become familiar with as, the universe.[Top]
With Retired British Murder Squad Detective Trevor Marriott
In the autumn of 1888 a series of brutal murders in the East End of London lit a flame that sent shockwaves reverberating around the civilized world and caused a scandal that struck right at the heart of the British establishment.
During the 1880s, the city of London was in parts a dirty, rotten, festering maze of slums replete with wandering gin addicts and foul-mouthed harlots and was experiencing a population explosion, with immigrants from around the world coming to the great city to find work.
But it wasn’t exactly the land of hope and glory for everybody, and some of the streets in the poorer East end of the city were a long way from being a yellow brick road.
This is where our man Jack the Ripper chose to ply his trade.
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 retired British murder squad detective Trevor Marriott about what drove this serial killer nabbing mostly working girls from the streets and brutally killing them in 1888 and… did he figured out this mystery of who Jack the Ripper was?[Top]
Attorney of Law Ms. Karen Conti weighs in on her experience with serial killer John Wayne Gacy.
Clowns, they were once figures of innocent fun, brightly colored jesters performing to laughing children – but the real-life story of killer clown John Wayne Gacy is more disturbing than anything you will see in cinemas.
John Wayne Gacy, aka Pogo the Clown, was one of the most sadistic serial killers in the 1970s. No one could suspect that beneath the colorful makeup a cruel and pitiless murderer was lurking who was luring his young victims back to his home in Norwood Park, Illinois. … killing at least 33 young men and boys.
It was in March of this year that I became tremendously curious to this horrifying case when I encountered Ms. Conti’s story about how she had served as one of John Gacy’s last attorneys as he fought to overturn his pending death sentence that has now become part of America’s true crime hall of fame.
Not only does Ms. Conti know what it is like to look the killer clown in the eye, she is a dynamic and influential attorney in the local and national legal community and has handled of numerous high-profile cases.
She is a member of the Illinois, California, and U.S. Supreme Court bars. She taught and lectured at Stanford University and American University in Washington, D.C., regular appears on MSNBC, Fox News, The O’Reilly Factor, truTV, and other media venues. Her current focus is on her practice in family law, where she has gained prominence among her peers and the bench.
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 Ms. Karen Conti about how the story of a young lawyer, whose client turned out to be a sadistic serial killer wearing a painted smile, begins.[Top]

In one of my FB posts I have mentioned that The Next Truth was leaving the door ajar concerning the gained the opportunity to go ON-AIR. Well, a few days back the first requests were send out what has started the process of recording and editing some of the very first Skype interviews.
Yesterday The Next Truth had the privilege to speak with Mrs. Chiara Chiesa who is an International Public Relation expert and Space Technology Commercialization Transfer advisor and recently has being selected as mentor, female model and ambassador for the Space4Woman Network of the United Nations for Space Affairs. UNOOSA United Office for Outer Space Affairs.
It was about 3 weeks ago that a friend of mine from the scientific community mailed me a highly interesting link what directed me to Chiara’s LinkedIn post what read that she is one of the 27 women, chosen between space professionals and space industry leaders from all over the world, who will engage in popular activities and, with personal stories, aim to inspire and mentoring girls and women to study STEM subjects and access the space sector.
And if that is not impressive enough, she is also the president and co-founder of INTERSTELLARS and fond of new technologies, sales advisor for Graphene-xt and PR and advisor for Walle mobility, which is a taxy-drone startup.
Chiara is one of the 1000 “Unstoppable women” who are changing Italy through innovation, list by StartupItalia and aims her focus on inspiring girls and women to pursue STEM and space careers.
