E-mail from Michael Roll to Professor John Poynton (December 4, 2013): Why I am Optimistic

To Professor John Poynton. Past President of the Society for Psychical Research


I have good reason to be optimistic. It is because of the mathematics of a chain letter. If one person tells just three people and those three people tell another three people, then in a very short time, millions will know about something that powerful obscurants don’t want in the public domain.

We have reached the situation, thanks to the Internet, and the websites that are presenting the censored and vilified scientific discoveries of Sir William Crookes and Sir Oliver Lodge, where thousands of people are now telling thousands to have a look at Sir Isaac Newton’s model of the universe. This is, that the spiritual part of the universe exists, that we all possess a soul that separates from the dead physical body and that we are all immediately reunited with our loved ones who have passed before us.

When this is compared to Einstein’s model of the universe, it’s no contest. This is the reason why the scientists who are presenting Newton’s model of the universe are being blocked. They are not getting past the corrupt peer-review system.

“I don’t believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbour such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism.”

Albert Einstein, New York Times, April 19, 1955.

The followers of Newton’s model of the universe where given a tremendous boost to their morale on 9 December, 2006, when the Nobel Laureate for Physics, Professor B.D. Josephson, made the following statement in the New Scientist:
“It’s hard to change how people think. People have vested interests, and their projects and reputations would be threatened if certain things were shown to be true.”

When the scientist Ron Pearson told me about this I rushed to the library and ran off a whole stack of copies.

It will be impossible to block uncomfortable discoveries in physics from reaching millions of people for much longer. Public opinion will sweep aside those who have vested interests in keeping Einstein’s false model of the universe alive. This is incompatible with quantum mechanics, the study of the very small within the atom.
“There is one thing that is more powerful than all the armies in the world and that is an idea whose time has come.”


It is now time to give people a scientific balance on mainstream media and educational outlets:

Newton or Einstein?


Professor John Poynton was Emeritus Professor of Biology (1978 – 2012) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and since 1992 Research Associate at the Natural History Museum, London. He was President of the Society for Psychical Research 2004-2007.
