With Professor Emeritus and Time Travel expert, Ronald Lawrence Mallett
Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of Prof. Emeritus Ronald L. Mallett in where he speaks about Einstein’s theories, the differences between Theoretical Physics & Experimental physics and STEM. (part 1)
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.

“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]
It was October 2018 that The Next Truth launched her very first magazine. Since then many of you have became familiar with the magazines look. This has slightly changed as both magazines of The Next Truth has gained a NEW LOOK.
These new layouts are not be withheld from you and can now be downloaded as a free PDF.
The Next Truth is not coming back with new editions containing fasinating articles, we are also going to present with you a weekly podcast in where renowned scientists and citizen scientists speak about their incredible research, awe-inspiring theories and mind dazzling paradoxes for you to explore the connections between accepted and noetic science.
So, fasten your galactic seatbelts and stay tuned as our guests will amaze you with their new research conducted what will let you balance on the edge of your chair for sure!

You know what fires me up and keeps me going? People who dare to look into the world and say; “What can I contribute? What can I give? I guarantee you, you will hear a voice that is saying; ‘It is just no uses. It is out of mine control’. There will be a voice telling you that: ‘You will be wasting your time, your energy and your efforts’. I advice you, do not listen to it. Rather listen to this whispering voice that says: ‘I CAN do something…and I am going to do it.”
I strongly believe that each one of us was born with a special skill. That each one of us was born to contribute something to life and that if we do not do share our skills…this knowledge will be lost forever. Be the one that want to contribute…to youth, the homeless or your neighbor.
If you get up in the morning and decide that, “I’m the open for the universe”, life can work through you as a channel and as an instrument for change. How will you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide? That is all you have to figure out. And I can tell you from experience, the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.
You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world!
After you walk through those doors today, you will only have two choices: love or fear. I would say, do not ever let fear turn you against your playful heart. Begin to see yourself as an opening for the universe, to move through, to work through and to make a difference in life.
It is easy to be positive when everything is working out but it is much harder…much much harder when you are facing challenges in your life. But that’s when we need it the most… to believe in what has yet to come.
Everything worth the prize is worth the fight. Everything worth the prize will require a real fight to achieve that prize. If you want the prize you cannot quit halftime, you cannot quit midseason. You must play the whole game preseason…through the cold, the darkness, through the challenges and the opponents. You will be knocked down of course but you must get up keep fighting no matter what your job throws at you. Dig deep and discover your true strength!
See yourself being used by life, to improve quality of life, to expand and to grow.
If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you will end up not doing nothing for nobody.
Be the change…the inspiration…you want to see![Top]
The team of The Next Truth wishes you all a peaceful first advent. Have a marvelous time with your beloved ones.[Top]

It goes through walls with the speed of 299792458 metres per second (approximately 300000 km/s (186000 mi/s)), but slows to a standstill in ultra-cold gases. It carries electronic information for radios and TVs, but destroys genetic information in cells. It bends around buildings and squeezes through pinholes, but ricochets off tiny electrons. It is “light” and it is made of photons. Radio waves are made of photons. X-rays are, you got it… made of photons.
From low energy radio waves to high energy gamma rays, light zips around us, bounces off us, and sometimes goes through us. Because it is so many things, defining light is a bit of a philosophical quandary. And although scientists have calculated the amount of visible light released into the universe by stars since the universe’s origin equals 4 x 10^84 photons, or, if you prefer, 4,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 photons, we know it primarily as the opposite of darkness. Most of the light is not visible to our eyes. It is like you are viewing a single 60-watt light bulb in complete darkness from about 2.5 miles away. But that does not mean it cannot be captured.
What is light?
Light could be a number of different things, depending on the circumstances. It could be the glow from a light bulb in your bedroom or the warm shining rays that beat down from the sun. Light can be natural (the sun) or manmade (candles or light bulbs), but no matter how it is created, we utilize light every single day. But the light scientists are talking about is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which ranges from radio waves to gamma rays. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) waves, as their names suggest are fluctuations of electric and magnetic fields, which can transport energy from one location to another. EMR can also be described in terms of a stream of photons which are massless particles each travelling with wavelike properties at the speed of light. In a nutshell, light is a form of energy and it travels in waves, similar to waves of water in the ocean. Except with light, the things doing the waving are electric and magnetic fields. Literally, light is a self-contained little bundle of these two fields, intertwined. That is why we call light electromagnetic radiation.
If you are floating in the ocean, you’ll move up as a wave passes you, then back down, then back up again when the next wave rolls by. The distance between these crests in the wave is called the wavelength. Since light is a wave, it has a wavelength as well, and this may be its single most important feature. That is because the energy of light is tied to its wavelength.
To put it simply, light is a type of radiant energy that we are able to visually perceive with our eyes. Over millions of years, our eyes have evolved to detect the kind of light the Sun emits most strongly. Well, that makes sense; that makes it easier for us to see! We call this kind of light “visible light”. And that is just the narrowest sampling of all the different wavelengths light can have.
But what does the speed of light actually look like?
Even it might sound like a ridiculous question, optical researchers at the California Institute of Technology recently built the world’s fastest camera which makes it possible to actually see light speed. Scientists at CALTECH now can capture X Y images but at 100 billion frames per second, that is 1 billion is 10 to the 9th. In fact they have upgraded their system to 10 trillion frames per second and with this type of rate, even a 100 billion frames per second; they can see a light pulse propagating in space and capture the scene literally at the speed of light.
The “Sonic Boom” for light
Normally sonic booms are created when an object moves faster than the speed of sound. But you should not be able to create a ‘sonic boom’ for light when nothing can travel faster than light. Unless you are a bit more specific.
“What we did was, we created a tunnel where the speed of light in the tunnel is greater than the speed of light in a medium and so we propagate a very short light pulse in that medium, Bren Professor of Medical Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology Lihong Wang explains in his You Tube video interview. “We spray some scatters within the tunnel, he says, so we generate secondary light sources and a light source will be propagated in the background medium so the light source will propagate at a greater speed and that create a superluminal light source.”
Now, light moves slower through the plate material than it does in the tunnel. So, as light scatters into the plates, it cannot keep up with the light in the dry ice fog. When this happens a cone-shaped wave-front of light forms behind the laser pulse just like a sonic boom shockwave created by a supersonic aircraft.
“If I speak and I stand still I emit approximately a spherical wave going out, Professor Lihong Wang explains. “But if I walk and talk it will be distorted. If I walk at a speed of sound or passing the speed of sound, I will create a cone structure that is called a “Sonic Mach cone” that is the sonic version of Mach cone and I was wondering if there’s this photonic version that we can image.”
While this was not the first time a photonic boom had been created – it was the first time one had been captured in real time. That is thanks to a new superfast camera that can capture images at 100 billion frames per second. They call it the “streak camera” whereby the technique employs a complex contraption that uses cameras and mirrors to build these slow motion movies tracking the lights movement across a scene. This streak camera is so fast that researchers ultimately hope to use it to image more than just laser pulses.
“One of the biomedical applications we are after is to image action potential propagation in a neural network, Professor Wang says in his video interview. “ So essentially we want to see the live traffic within the brain and find out how the brain is wired and that would elucidate the mysteries of the brain.”

“Doctor Who”, “Star Trek” and “Back to the Future” who has not seen these movies and, even for a brief moment, thought if it could be possibile to truly travel through time. While most people think of time as a constant, travelling forwards in time is surprisingly easy. Einstein’s special theory of relativity, developed in 1905, shows that time passes at different rates for people who are moving relative to one another – although the effect only becomes large when you get close to the speed of light.
The behaviours of time can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space. To Einstein, time is the “fourth dimension.” Space is described as a three-dimensional arena, which provides a traveler with coordinates — such as length, width and height —showing location. Physicist Albert Einstein showed that time is an illusion; it is relative.
The reality, however, is more muddled. Not all scientists believe that time travel is possible. Some even say that an attempt would be fatal to any human who chooses to undertake it.
What is space-time? Can we twist it in a manner whereby yesterday becomes tomorrow? Does our heart really stops beating as we go faster than the speed of light? For finding a plausible answer to these questions I contacted Time Travel Specialist Professor Ronald L. Mallett. And so, on the evening of 4 Nov. The Next Truth had the privilege to interview theoretical physicist Prof. Ronald L. Mallett which was incredible! 😊
For almost one and a half hour we spoke about, among others, how he became interested in physics, what time travel is and the science behind it, General relativity and the Grandfather paradox. But we also spoke about his book “Time Travelers; A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality” what is planned to be filmed. https://www.amazon.com/Time-Traveler-Scientists-Personal-Mission/dp/1560258691
And what I personally found really cool, we briefly spoke about the original magazine he bought as a young boy, what contains the one article what was the key for Prof. Mallet to see that there is a real possibility to go forward and backward in time.
It is always a true honor having the privilege to speak with a brilliant mind and learn new things first hand.
