‘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?

The Next Truth edition of March, Out Now!

If someone asked you to explain consciousness, could you provide a coherent answer?

Many philosophers have argued that it is a unitary concept that is understood intuitively. Others, though, have argued that the word indicates that it either means different things to different people, or it encompasses a variety of distinct meanings with no simple element in common. Despite millennia of analyses, definitions, explanations and debates by philosophers and scientists, consciousness remains puzzling and controversial.

There is this idea that identity is continuous. Each person alters over time piece by piece, and so, eventually, you are a completely different person as the one you started out as. Because your body keeps replicating cells and changing things, you could ask the question “Am I still the same person that I was 10 years ago, or am I someone completely different?”

If that was not mind boggling enough for you, let me introduce you to the Boltzmann brain.

Imagine the universe in a far-flung future. Due to entropy and the expansion of the universe, everything will one day no longer exist. The universe will have unraveled from itself, leaving nothing but an infinite amount of empty space, except it will not be entirely being empty. Space will experience random thermal fluctuations.

So if the universe is infinite, then that means every possible configuration of fluctuation happens. And as bizarre as it might seem, sometimes these fluctuations will perfectly recreate a temporary version of ourselves. Those are called Boltzmann brains. I wonder if this is our consciousness.

Regardless, if the Boltzmann brains exist, it is mathematically likely that we are currently living inside one of these fluctuations. That means we are a strange temporary approximation of people who once lived perhaps billions of years ago. So you are you, but you are also someone else that was you, but you are that person, but you are only you….(sigh)…. never mind I will let myself out.

Stress, Dissociation and Depression; Do They Trigger the Brain to Create Vivid Paranormal Phenomenon?

California State University’s Prof of psychology, Matthew J. Sharps weighs in

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of Prof. Matthew J. Sharps

‘What is real and what is not?’ A ghostly apparition gliding the grounds of a cemetery, the, during a traditional ritual, summoned deities or the car in the garage?  Odd as it may sound on the latter, the truth is, we have no clue what this mathematical Matrix around us, truly contains.

As far as it is known, our brain has yet not learned how to place a concept into the frame of classical reality….how to convert the geometric design(s) of nature herself, into an understandable language.

So, like water is choosing the easiest way to descent, the brain seems automatically grabbing to what it is that is the most logical translation of what it ‘thinks’ it is perceiving and, in a most creative manner,  it starts filling in the blanks of whatever it might be that is dwelling in a dark forest or crossing the skies with a speed that breaks all laws of physics.

What is the purpose for us to fill in these blanks with Mother nature’s monsters, UFO’s or a conspiracy theory?  Is it a neuron-psychological defense mechanism?  Where lies the origin of this stimulus what is triggering the brain in believing its own creations and…what would happen if people would perceive classical reality for what it is by nature?

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 Matthew Sharps who is a Professor of psychology at the California State University, Fresno… about how modern and traditional religion, and the rituals within, are merged with the paranormal believes.

The Philosophy of Science As a Way of Life.

With Associate Prof. and Global Young Academy Co-Chair, Dr. Anindita Bhadra

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of Ass. Prof. Dr. Anindita Bhadra

Although it is often taken for granted, it is not at all a natural line of thought that a person has to fulfill a specific task in life based on being a woman or a man.

The term “gender role” was first used by John Money and colleagues in 1954, during the course of his study of intersex individuals, and  speaks of a social role encompassing a range of behaviors and attitudes that are generally considered acceptable, appropriate, or desirable for a person based on that person’s biological or perceived sex.

The importance of mainstreaming gender in all walks of life cannot be over-emphasized.   This is not just to make sure that women get a chance to give expression to their creativity and abilities but it is essential for the balanced development of any society.   In fact when considering women in science, it is even truer: research is a highly creative and individualistic activity and each person makes his or her unique contribution.

The process of scientific development, innovation and discovery can only benefit from diversity, gender being just one component. Also given the fact that women are 50% of humanity, their intellectual potential is something that we can ill afford to ignore.

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 Anindita Bhadra who is Global Young Academy Co-Chair and Associate Professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education & Research.… about the position of the female scientist in India and the importance of STEM subjects.

The Science and Technology of Time Travel May be Less Far-Fetched as it Sounds

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.

Complex Geometric Designed Crop Circles; Is This Proof for Interstellar Civilizations Seeking Contact?

With the director of the nonprofit Institute for Resonance, Dr. Simeon Hein

Dr. Simeon Hein started his own research and teaching company, the Mount Baldy Institute in 1996, to give people the opportunity to learn resonant viewing, a type of intuitive training that taps into our creative unconscious intelligence.

It was in 1678 that an English woodcut pamphlet was published bearing the title “The Mowing-Devil“.   The pamphlet tells the story of a farmer in Hertfordshire who, refusing to pay the price demanded by a laborer to mow his field, swore he would rather the Devil mowed it instead.

That night his field appeared to be in flame and the next morning, the field was found to be perfectly mowed in a way that no mortal man was able to do.

Many say that interstellar civilizations can be all around us and pop in and out our atmosphere at any time and…at any wished coordination with the speed of light. Some even suggest that crop circles are the proof for these visitations.

Is the human species dealing with interstellar civilizations presenting themselves as intelligent plasma’s…a force of nature that is not fully understand but have the ability of sending and receiving information?

What is it that they find so interesting on our planet? Who creates these extraordinary mysteries of the fields and why? Could the complex geometric designs of crop circles be the visible result of time travelers using wormholes?

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 director of the nonprofit Institute for Resonance in Boulder, Colorado, Dr. Simeon Hein… about how we can learn the skills of remote viewing and the mystery of vast, complex crop circles that materialize overnight.

What Lies Beyond the Edge of Our World Map

With Flat Earther, Mark Sargent

The flat Earth model speaks of the Earth being shaped as a plane or disk. Many ancient cultures subscribed to a flat Earth cosmography, including Greece until the classical period, the Bronze Age and Iron Age civilizations of the Near East until the Hellenistic period, India until the Gupta period (the early centuries AD), and China until the 17th century.

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the first part of the TNT-Podcast interview of Flat-Earther, Mark Sargent. Or, download both Part 1 & 2 as a MP3 file.

In the early 4th century BC Plato wrote about a spherical Earth, and by about 330 BC his former student Aristotle provided evidence for the spherical shape of the Earth on empirical grounds. Knowledge of the spherical Earth gradually began to spread beyond the Hellenistic world from then on.

Modern Flat-Earthers claim that Antarctica is a giant icy wall designed to keep us from falling off our disc-shaped world. Or, to prevent us from finding out the hard truth that we don’t live on a globe. To back up this theory, they claim that no one has ever crossed the whole continent.

The picture Mark Sargent send The Next Truth during his interview with The Next Truth.

After digging through dozens of blog posts and watching hours of mind dazzling YouTube videos I still could not wrap my mind around this theory. So, I thought I should ask a true Flat-Earther and explain some of the arguments that a huge number of people use to justify their belief in a flat-Earth.

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 Flat-Earther Mark Sargent about … if NASA is truly spending all of its multi-billion-dollar budget on thousands of illustrators and graphic designers?

Are Extraterrestrials Visiting Our Planet and…Where Are They?!

With author and UFO researcher, Philip Mantle

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of UFO-researcher Philip Mantle.

The UFO subject as we know it came to the public’s attention on June 24th, 1947 when private pilot Kenneth Arnold, flying over the Cascade Mountains in the USA, witnessed a formation of objects that he could not identify.  Speaking later to a journalist regarding the encounter, Arnold was asked how this formation of objects moved through the air, and his response was: “Like a skipping saucer across a pond.”  From that moment on, the coined phrase ‘Flying Saucer’ was born.”

This is what author writes in his book, ‘INTRODUCING UFOs – A Young Person’s Guide’.  Philip Mantle, the former Director of Investigations for the British UFO Research Association and the MUFON Representative for England, has selected several UFO cases, and their histories from the 1940’s onwards, and placed them underneath a magnifying glass for you to explore.  But these documentations written in his book are not meant to be in-depth, but rather to illustrate the case in as brief a way as possible, without missing the most notable points.

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 founder of ‘Flying Disk Press’ Philip Mantle, who is a long-standing UFO researcher and author from West Yorkshire, UK,…. about… why are we still in the dark when it comes to extraterrestrial life visiting our planet and which of their advanced technologies has already applied to Earthly technologies.

What is dwelling beyond our Peripheral Vision

With the Co-founder and Team Medium of Paranormal Research York, Kevin Spindloe

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of lightworker Kevin Spindloe

Science, so many state, has been a great destroyer of myth and superstition, but over time scientists have created new black boxes, aka a photo or film camera, which we are filling with our ghostly imaginations.

What also may surprise you is that scientific icons like Newton, Boyle, Edison and Einstein, and many others of similar standing, took reports of those phenomena occurring beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding, quite seriously.

Theology, philosophy, mythology and even physics when looking at Euclidean geometry, are offering surprising insights in the worlds of those spirits who are generally causing a ruckus in a household. But just because a candle falls off your mantel does not mean you have a clumsy demon in the house. It doesn’t even necessarily mean you have a poltergeist who has a crush on your new sneakers.

Still, even though many believe in the existence of ghosts, spirits, demons and angles, there is still a lot of confusion over what actually is lurking in these dim and elusive realms.

Some say, is a spirit, a ghost or even a demon that is throwing things around in your home. Others say it is only the manifestation of a person’s psychokinetic energy, or PK activity, that is acting out.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”.     This week I am welcoming back the Co-founder and Team Medium of Paranormal Research York from the United Kingdom Kevin Spindloe and talk with him about …  what it is that is dwelling beyond our peripheral vision.

An extra- or intra-dimensional entity like that of a poltergeist, or an alien, after all?
