I was in bed one evening reading a book in our room at the rear of our
hose when it suddenly seemed that the entire front section of the
house was no longer there and I could see two people standing on the
council footpath about five metres away from me wearing full length
coats and illuminated by a street lamp.
I 'heard' one them ask if I would be prepared to work with them and
when I replied "yes" the other one 'said' "We will be in touch with
I had minimal interest in, or knowledge of, physics and mathematics
yet two weeks later my son, Glenn, showed me an article in a science
magazine that dealt with a method, based on Albert Einstein's special
theory of relativity, of obtaining time travel - which I also had very
little interest in and did not accept.
Glenn could not explain why he gave me this magazine.
The article detailed special theory's concepts of time dilation and
length contraction but when I asked Glenn to explain these concepts
to me he, being aware of my gross ignorance in mathematics, insisted
that t would take too long so I went 'back to school' at the local
library where I found, to my surprise, that various academically
qualified authors of science books totally disagreed with each other
on the subject of time dilation.
In my ignorance I had been of the opinion that physics, being based on
'irrefutable' mathematical equations, was an 'exact' science and could
not understand why they would disagree with each other.
Over the ensuing years I made several findings mainly as the result of
serendipitous events one of which extended over a period of five years
but had a window of opportunity of just a few seconds.
Einstein was one of several notables such as Beethoven Mozart and
Edison all of whom insisted that their ideas were not of their own
volition but that they simply appeared in their minds.
I have written a manuscript titled 'Beyond the Light Barrier'
incorporating my findings some of which have been published in
metaphysics magazines and one of them in the prestigious, peer
reviewed, Canadian science journal "Apeiron'.
One of the chapters deals with the topic 'Science Vs Religion' showing
that many physicists seem to be
trying to establish their own theology. In his book 'God and the New
Physics' Paul Davies wrote "In my opinion science offers a surer path
to God than religion."
In his book 'The Matter Myth' Davies wrote that due to the inherent
uncertainty of physics people seem to be turning away from that
subject toward religion however he insists that theologians should not
dabble in questions that lie outside the field of religion but
apparently sees no hypocrisy in scientists dabbling in the field of
In 1921 Einstein insisted that the time dilation and length
contraction concepts presented in special theory have no application
to reality and if this is correct then special theory should no longer
be considered, as it is, as being the foundation of all modern
I often think that the apparition I experienced so many years ago was
analogous to Einstein's ideas appearing in his mind and that I am
helping to show that the beliefs held by many scientists that special
theory is sacrosanct have no basis in reality.
A person, a self-admitted atheist, interviewing Paul Davies on tv
stated that whilst he could not understand much of what Davies was
saying he accepted it 'on a basis of faith' yet he would openly
castigate anyone who has the same attitude in relation to religion.
