World Patent Marketing tweet featuring stolen image from web site documenting Ronald Mallett’s losing race against me.
This article is about the most futuristic subject, which is also the most misunderstood, and yet closer than most could ever imagine. It is also about the man who, though he claims to be its leading researcher, has in fact done it – and all of us who actually work in the field, the most disservice. It’s also about how the media has been duped into promoting this sham, adding fuel to the fire as to why people don’t trust the media anymore. Written with a unique perspective, having full knowledge of Ronald L. Mallett and his theories, from personal experience and research, dating back to 2007, it is but a singular example of how the future you’re often sold, is a retread of back dated, false promises.
I promoted Mallett in live events, appeared with him on radio and in a scientific panel discussion on time travel, and having had a number of conversations and correspondence by email, I can say that Ronald Mallett’s grasp of the subject of time travel was never impressive, although he seemed confident at the time that he had discovered a working solution that would enable him to send subatomic particles into the past. My impression was that his grasp, overall, of time travel as a concept was on par with what I believed to be the average, conservative physicist. In other words, limited by mathematical constructs found in the theories of Relativity, because Einstein’s work is considered “safe”. That level of comprehension is inferior to mine, as I had long integrated quantum theory into my knowledge concerning time travel, as in fact, it is not entirely uncommon knowledge that, in 1992, my informal mentor into quantum mechanics had been Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, author of the book, Parallel Universes: The Search for Other Worlds. So by 2007, I was beyond Mallett’s level of understanding. Today, I’m literally light years beyond where I was in 2007. However, Ronald Mallett has remained the same.
Since arriving on the public scene with the New Scientist magazine cover article, Flashback: Introducing the World’s First Time Machine, in 2002, Ronald Mallett has beguiled the media and public with his self-proclaimed personal quest to make time travel a reality by building the world’s first time machine. The truth is, he’s built his reputation up with absolutely nothing – trading on the lies that others have willingly told for him, misrepresentations that he has endorsed, and The Lavin Agency’s willingness to always promote him with less than the truth.
This is a critical review of an interview done with Mallett and published the very month that the beginning of the end began for him, by the Federal Trade Commission raiding the Miami headquarters of his latest and greatest ally, Scott J. Cooper’s World Patent Marketing. Motherland Magazine published an article on their web site titled, The ‘Crazy Professor’ Makes A Time Machine (it originally appeared at the URL http://www.motherlandmagazine.com/ronald-mallett/ but at the time of this publication, it, nor any other articles, seem to be available. However, you can see a web archived version at https://web.archive.org/web/20170624062711/http://www.motherlandmagazine.com/ronald-mallett/ where I suggest you read it and compare with what I’m telling you right now). The spelling style is British.
The headline itself is an exercise in contradictions. Though Mallett may act crazy, in that he actually believed that he could carry off a world-class fraud and get away with it, the rest of the title explains why – it’s a lie. Ronald Mallett has never, and will never, make a time machine. He’s not on the verge, hasn’t started, isn’t building nor will he ever do the things that the media seems so willing to attribute to him, though they are patently and demonstrably false. When I say that, I mean in a court of law – right now. Motherland is no different, just as susceptible to Ronald Mallett’s skills as a con artist as Bloomberg, CNN, CNN International, the Wall Street Journal, Boston Phoenix, Epoch Times, Washington Post, Metro International, Indie Wire, Hartford Courant, The Daily Express, ABC News, Boing Boing, Popular Mechanics, The MarySue, Altoona Mirror, Chicago Tribune, Watertown Daily Times, NBC Chicago, Los Angeles Times, NPR News and many, many others.
Motherland editor, Ravina Rawal, who describes herself as usually having a tough time with multiplication tables, said she had to take two weeks off for a crash course in quantum physics and Albert Einstein, in order to properly understand what Ronald Mallett “plans to do with the time machine he’s building”. She failed. You will see later in this interview that it certainly wasn’t enough. This, of course, sets the perfect stage for Ronald Mallett – an interview with a person with zero practical understanding of the subject at hand and willing to stretch the truth for expediency. I can justify that comment about her – right now. I just quoted her statement in the opening of her article, written after she had interviewed Mallett. As you’ll see by the end of mine – there no evidence that he is building a time machine at all.
If you believe the media, and the statements of the Lavin Agency that represents him, Ronald Mallett has been building a time machine for at least 17 years and yet is no closer to actually starting than he was 17 years ago. He’s the embodiment of a Zeno’s paradox – in order to build a time machine he must finish and in order to finish he must be almost done, and in order to be almost done, he has to be nearly done and in order to be nearly done – he’s been half way there, and if he’s been half way there it means he has to have started and to have started it means that he’s been on the verge and that’s exactly where he’s been all this time. Like a figure seen from outside the event horizon of a black hole, who remains forever visible on the edge. Forever on the verge, but never seen crossing over. In other words, he’s all talk and no action, unless he’s about to talk some more. Motherland Magazine published the article with Ravina’s questions in all caps. I’ll just reproduce their format for expediency’s sake.
I THINK TO EVEN BEGIN A CONVERSATION WHERE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT TRAVELLING THROUGH TIME, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TIME REALLY IS. SO FIRST I’D LIKE TO GET YOUR UNDERSTANDING/DEFINITION OF TIME — IS IT A STRAIGHT LINE ARROW? AN INFINITE SERIES OF MULTIVERSES? WHAT?
Instead of just giving a straight answer, Mallett immediately launches into a strategy that I have seen him use time and time again – open up with a barrage of non-related facts.
“Okay, the thing is… time is one of those elusive things…”
Instead of just answering the question about what time is, he begins with a non-answer, which is immediately problematic because if he can’t just answer the question, it means he doesn’t know the answer and if he doesn’t know the answer – then how could he even be considering building a machine that’s going to manipulate something that he doesn’t understand? That answer’s easy – he’s not.
It takes him 12 whole sentences to not only not answer the question but to lead into his other standard, canned spam – the story of how his father’s death so depressed him as a child that when he learned about the concept of time travel from a H.G. Wells comic book, and then the alleged solutions in Einstein’s theory of Relativity that could allow for time travel, he was inspired to become a physicist so he could build a time machine and go back in time to save his father’s life. Quite frankly, I’ve heard the story so many times I couldn’t care less about his father’s death, as cruel as it sounds, because of 2 very good reasons that completely elude the clueless. First, for all the angst and sorrow that he professes that his father’s death caused – which propelled him to become a theoretical physicist in order to build a time machine and go back and save his father, something rings hollow in the story. After some careful investigation, I put my finger on it – it looks too much like a lie.
This is what I mean – I’m willing to accept when he was a child, that was his original motivation. After he got his PhD, I’m thinking it was not so much anymore, and the reason comes from Mallett’s own statements. A person who’s lying will usually say something in their story that will trip themselves up. With Mallett, you have to begin with his story as a child after his father’s death. What does he say? It was the H.G. Wells comic book of The Time Machine that inspired him. What was that story about? An inventor who builds a time machine. What’s Mallett do? Does he learn theoretical physics as a minor but pursue a PhD in applied physics or engineering, which would enable him to be like the hero of the H.G. Wells story that so inspired him? No. He gets his PhD in theoretical physics which gives him none of the thinking skills for machine design and the reason for that comes from page 165 of his book Time Traveler, the last paragraph – “As a theoretical physicist, I learned long ago that I did not have the aptitude for experimental work. However, the time machine was too important for me to wait until experimenters decided they were interested in my theory…”
This is a very important admission. Notice, he didn’t say he didn’t have any experience in experimental work or lacked the previous desire to do it. No, his words – ” I did not have the aptitude for experimental work“. The aptitude. The Merriam-Webster.com dictionary says ‘aptitude’ is defined as “inclination, tendency; a natural ability : talent; capacity for learning”. So, he didn’t have the ability to do what the hero of the H.G. Wells book did – the book that was his inspiration. He didn’t have what it would take to design and build a time machine. Now, I know all about his claim of designing his time machine, even if he hasn’t built it yet, but come on. I am an advanced concept science and technology R&D engineer. I’ve not only designed things – I’ve built them, and I’ll deal with Mallett’s design claims later. However, the gravity of Mallett’s admission then distorts the realization of what he was supposed to be doing this for – saving his father’s life in the past.
“‘Everything that I became, the whole of my personality, everything about being a physicist, was based on my love for my father, and my desire to see him again. My whole existence, who I am, is due to the death of my father, and my promise to myself to figure out how to affect time with Einstein’s work as a foundation…I’m the theoretical guy. The experimental physicists will have to take on the daunting – and very expensive – role of testing my theory.”
Oh no, they don’t! That statement, that “the experimental physicists will have to take on the daunting – and very expensive – role of testing my theory”, is Ronald Mallett with his slip showing. The one where he thinks that everything is about him. No one has to prove anyone’s theory – especially if it’s daunting and expensive and no one else even supports it. That’s why it’s best to be able to do your own experimental work, especially if that’s the reason you get involved with a field – to build things!
Well, that’s what Mallett told Rob Waugh, writer for Metro UK. Of course I laugh at it now, because of that last line. It’s so obvious. If he really wanted to do what he says, he wouldn’t leave it to anybody else! He would’ve stopped at nothing, not stopped at the first problem. Ronald Mallett is a damn liar.
ABC News 2009 Father’s Day feature on Ronald Mallett
When Mallett discovered his idea for a time machine wouldn’t provide the result that drove him to become a physicist to begin with, what did he do? Did he go back to the drawing board and figure out where he went wrong? Did he pursue the other theories that could possibly resolve this impasse? No, he didn’t. He just dropped all pretense of trying to reach his goal and used it to market himself in his ever-growing true quest – the quest for fame! So, despite the fact he had made his alleged research personal, about he and his father, and it’s a major part of any lecture he gives and is even why Spike Lee got interested enough to buy the rights to Mallett’s story – there is no evidence at all of Mallett’s sincerity in ever trying to save his father in the past, once he figured out his first and only time machine design. In other words, Mallett didn’t stop at nothing to figure out a way to get the job done. Oh, no! He didn’t love his father that much. He stopped at the first design flaw, and called it “a career”. Later, we will see why his design was doomed from its very conceptualization. In more ways than one.
Ravina then asks, BUT TRAVELLING BACKWARD AND FORWARD IN TIME ARE TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CONCEPTS, CORRECT?
She’s correct in theory, but wrong in detail. Time travel doesn’t actually involve any “travel” in time, something that must be stated to keep the conversation from veering totally off into science fiction misconceptions. But Mallett doesn’t correct her because he doesn’t realize it himself. The problem is simple, yet apparently beyond the mental grasp of most. Space and time are connected, that’s how we have the space-time continuum. Everything, on all levels, is moving through space and connected to every point in space – at all levels, is time. So, everything is always moving through time. The common question is ‘how do we get back to an earlier time?’ That requires thinking on a higher level, that Mallett has demonstrated repeatedly, he lacks the proclivity for. I won’t go into the answer here but I’ll refer you to my response on Quora.com to the question, “Why Can’t We Make Time Machines?”. There you will see everything that Ronald Mallett is ignorant of, including how he could go back in time to save his father’s life, and it has nothing to do with Einstein or Mallett’s design.
“Oh, that’s right, that’s exactly right. Einstein developed two separate theories — one of the theories was called the Special Theory of Relativity, and in this Einstein said that time could be affected by speed…” as Mallett continues with his canned Einstein response. Seriously, if you’ve heard one Ronald Mallett lecture, you’ve heard them all. The same for his interviews for the most part, and there’s only one main reason for that – he’s never done any new work since 2002 or so. I’m not kidding. Nor has he published a single paper on time travel physics. Don’t believe me? Look at his own web site at UConn –http://www.phys.uconn.edu/~mallett/main/papers.htm. Then check out the updated version at https://physics.uconn.edu/ronald-mallett/ . He doesn’t even list time travel as a research interest anymore! His interview with Motherland has a few new twists, which I believe were because of upcoming competitive pressure from me that was happening at the time. You’ll see where. However, I’m getting ahead of myself…
OKAY, SO NOW HOW DOES EINSTEIN’S SECOND THEORY — THE GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY — COME IN?
It is here where Ronald reveals the extent to which he is willing to bend the truth – and get everyone else to, in order to maintain what I call the Mallett Myth – the idea that he is a genius who discovered the solution to practical time travel to the past from Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, when everyone else had failed.
“Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity is actually the core of my work, because what I wanted to do was use gravity to manipulate time — and this was where my breakthrough came…”
Mallett enjoys tossing Einstein’s name around. He feels that it gives him credibility as well as cover, so he can say what he has many times – “This isn’t Ronald Mallett’s theory of time travel, this is from Einstein.” The irony of course is that it was a November 2015 article written for PBS NewHour – TVs, radar guns and other technologies linked to Einstein’s theories of relativity, by Nsikan Akpan, where Mallett inadvertently exposed himself as a fraud. In other words – he really didn’t solve Einstein’s equations so that he could build a time machine, at all. Why? His math was wrong.
“Another barrier to time twisting is energy.” Akpan writes. “The juice required for prototype’s ability to twist space would be 23.9 Joules — about as much power as 24 mile per hour baseball pitch. But the energy for twisting time would be off the charts.”
What happens next was an Earth shattering moment for anyone versed in Mallett’s highly rote story of his breakthrough, the celebrated sign of his supposed genius.
“That on the surface appears to require an enormous amount of energy. I mean a huge amount of energy, like stellar quantities,’ Mallett said. However, twisting space may serve as the foundation for a warp drive.”
That’s right. And to be sure, I called Akpan up and asked him if Mallett really said that, and he assured me that Mallett did. In order to twist time – now Mallett says it will require “stellar quantities” of energy. That means, according to what he’s saying now, that it’s near impossible to do. Just like all the other time machine designs and ideas based on Relativity theory like J.R. Gott’s cosmic strings, Kip Thorne’s wormhole mouths and Frank Tipler’s Tipler Cylinder. In other words, Mallett is admitting that there’s nothing special or particularly possible, about his idea over any of the previous ones. Nothing. Not one damn thing!
This requires a moment of reflection as the gravity of this admission must be fully appreciated. This means Ronald Mallett had no “breakthrough” despite what he told Ravina. That was a slip-up from his carefully prepared schtick that he’s used to saying for years. Because the entire story of Mallett’s so-called brilliance was that he had found solutions in Einstein’s equations that did not require massive amounts of energy. That was it. I want to say this again – the entirety of why Ronald Mallett has been worshipped, even intimated by some that he is a genius of time travel, not only that – depicted as the father of time travel in Ben Bowie’s now false documentary, The World’s First Time Machine, is because he claimed to have found solutions in the equations of Einstein’s General theory of Relativity and yet – in 2015 he admitted that he was wrong. That means he isn’t brilliant, since that was his only evidence for being so. Despite that, he told Ravina, in this article published in March of this year, 2017, about his “breakthrough” when there was none. It was a mistake, but not one that he wasn’t warned about.
In 2005, physicists Ken Olum and Allen Everett wrote, Can a circulating light beam produce a time machine? whose abstract states – “In a recent paper, Mallett found a solution of the Einstein equations in which closed timelike curves (CTC’s) are present in the empty space outside an infinitely long cylinder of light moving in circular paths around an axis. Here we show that, for physically realistic energy densities, the CTC’s occur at distances from the axis greater than the radius of the visible universe by an immense factor. We then show that Mallett’s solution has a curvature singularity on the axis, even in the case where the intensity of the light vanishes. Thus it is not the solution one would get by starting with Minkowski space and establishing a cylinder of light.”
That was in 2005, before his book even came out. What was Mallett’s response at the time? According to the Wikipedia article, “However, he does not provide any additional argument as to why we should expect to see closed timelike curves in a different spacetime where there is no line source, and where the light is caused to circulate due to passing through a physical substance like a photonic crystal rather than circulating in a vacuum due to the curved spacetime around the line source.”
What this means is that Mallett’s work, based on the use of his precious Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, is B.S. and he knew it in 2005, two years before I met him. More than that, physicist J.R. Gott of Princeton shot down another aspect of Mallett’s “breakthrough”, the idea that his concept would work if the speed of light could be slowed down by passing it through a medium. Gott pointed out that light slows down in water but that doesn’t “mean that you age more slowly while scuba diving or that it is easier to twist space-time underwater.” Another example of Mallett’s lack of aptitude showing. In response to Gott’s criticism, Mallett wrote in his book, “For a time, I considered the possibility that slowing down light might increase the gravitational frame dragging effect of the ring laser… Slow light, however, turned out not to be helpful for my research.” In other words, his lack of aptitude caused him to not see the difference until Gott pointed it out.
“Like Einstein, I’m a theoretical physicist, I use equations to try to describe the world. And in physics, there’s a big division of labour between theoretical physicists (who use equations) and experimental physicists (who use equipment to verify our theories).”
Again, with the Einstein. I could be mistaken, but I don’t think I’ve ever read about another physicist telling an interviewer, “like Einstein, I am a theoretical physicist…” But again, it is in the part that follows that his lack of aptitude shows, but only to those of us with the expertise in the field to see it –
“So eventually, as I said, the straight line of time will get twisted into a loop and that’ll allow you to go back into the past. That’s the essence of my work, and that’s actually the sort of experiment that we’ll be looking at.”
This statement is both simplistic and stupid. The simplicity is obvious. Here’s the stupidity –
1. How short is the loop?
2. What happens when the loop is complete?
3. What is the relationship between the length of the loop (its circumference) and the amount of time that it will go to the past?
4. Is there a way out of the loop?
These are just a few of the pertinent questions that should’ve been asked and I could continue, but I think I’ve made my point. Mallett’s comment says nothing and Ravina’s lack of knowledge on the subject is more than apparent here, illustrating a point I’ve been making on Quora.com for a while now – temporal mechanics is not a logical art. If you don’t know it, you can’t guess it. Because Ravina doesn’t know anything, but the most shallow and pedestrian factoids about time travel, she let that comment by Mallett slide right by, which is what he was counting on. After all, his own answers to those questions would reveal his inherent inadequacies on the subject since he’s never satisfactorily answered those, or similar questions – ever.
Her next question is more than significant, because what Mallett says is so far from the truth.
SO YOU’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE ABLE TO MOVE THINGS IN EMPTY SPACE IN A WAY THAT YOU WEREN’T ABLE TO BEFORE. THIS WILL AFFECT A LOT OF THINGS…
“Absolutely, and one of the effects of this is going to be important — it’s going to affect communication in a rapid way…What happens if you could not only push information through space, but with space? My work will be a breakthrough in information transfer…This really is going to revolutionise communication.”
At this point, I must pause. I pause because what he has just said either shows how desperate he is to stay relevant, or how far he is willing to lie and deceive. Perhaps both. I’ll explain. It’s really this simple – how is he going to make space move faster than light? That is the only way that he could possibly do what he’s saying. Yes, I realize that he says he’ll “push” space, yeah I get that. But what Ravina and probably most of you don’t get is that first of all, his technological approach won’t “push” anything. Where has he even mentioned that word before in describing his “breakthrough”? Nowhere. Twisting doesn’t involve pushing. It just so happens that I know a lot about this area because this is where I had already produced a technology that produces a specially synthesized, electromagnetic field, that warps space by contraction. It’s an exhibition of Einstein’s theory of teleparallelism, which unifies electromagnetism and gravity – not General Relativity, which demands prohibitive energy requirements to so the same thing.
Mallett saw a video demonstration of it himself in 2007 and it was then, when I mentioned that a physics professor that I knew was suggesting that if we could rotate that field, we could get similar results to what Mallett was talking about, that Mallett had a panic attack. Literally. It was like he was seeing his life pass before him as he stammered out an objection about how I couldn’t do that, and I just told him that it didn’t infringe on his idea at all because I wasn’t using lasers or even the same model of physics as he was. However, the shock to him was so severe, and I, being his host and a moral supporter at that time, quickly calculated in my head that I could continue to concentrate on the application of that technology for space travel if he didn’t take too long in developing what he had already started. I asked if he felt that he could raise the money he needed and complete his research in three to five years. He told me he could. Then I said I’d surrender the field to him so that he could live up to the hype he was getting. He was grateful. But I didn’t know until 2015, that he was a liar, and a con artist and that he hadn’t done any further research at all, and he’d try to throw me under the bus and was clearly about to engage in fraud with his partnership with Scott J. Cooper of World Patent Marketing – and this idea that he mentioned to Ravina, was part of it. But I digress…
Me shooting an interview with Ronald Mallett the weekend he conned me out of 5 years of my research life.
Next is the fact that communications already move at the speed of light. So in order to make them move faster, he would have to warp space somehow and by ‘warp’, I mean contract it as some medium, doing the contracting, encountered it. The only way that makes any sense at all, is by creating an electromagnetic signal that contracts space as it moves through it and to use that signal as a carrier wave for the information portion, just as what is done in radio. The only way that even has a chance of working is with my technology and I’m not even sure about that. The focus of my technology has always been on the way it can be used to produce a field that produces a gravitic effect as it moves through space, but the way that happens is when the signal it comes from, hits metal that is already moving (as in a fuselage), and then becomes the field that makes it move faster. In outer space, that field could be pulsed and produce a way to theoretically travel faster than the speed of light. However, I never considered the effect of just transmitting the signal as a radio wave (although I had discussed other methods of propagation in the form of photon streams on Researchgate.net, last year) with information piggy backed on to it for communication purposes, but I will now, because I’ve decided to sell it, along with all the other capabilities it has.
However, this gives zero credibility to Mallett’s statements. He doesn’t have my technology and never did. He doesn’t understand it, he just knows that it works and that scares him. He was saying that his approach could get the job done – his way, which is by twisting space. Here again, on full display is his total lack of aptitude in this area. His twisting concept uses lasers and despite the fact that they move at the speed of light, twisting doesn’t add any acceleration to them. In fact, that’s not even a part of his theory. The twisting is supposed to create a loop and that won’t accelerate anything.
Furthermore, the very idea that it takes a rotation to move forward in space is clear evidence of his ineptitude. While that twist is being performed, normal radio waves would be moving without the need for the rotation. Again. This rotation would have to be “pushing space” (or contracting it) to make any difference and there is no apparent way that he proposes doing it.
TO COME BACK TO TRAVELLING BACK IN TIME AND FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE BEING DIFFERENT CONCEPTS — IS ONE GOING TO BE EASIER THAN THE OTHER? COULD I TRAVEL TO ANOTHER TIME AND STAY THERE INDEFINITELY?
“Going back to the past requires a lot more energy, and a lot more technique. What we’re hoping is that as we develop this, we’ll learn what we need to overcome the energy barrier to go back into the past.”
That, again, is an admission that Mallett really hadn’t made a breakthrough, despite years and years of media accolades for an accomplishment yet to accomplished. What did Ravina say at the beginning of her article? That he was building a time machine? He doesn’t even know how it’s going to work anymore!
SO WHERE DO THINGS STAND RIGHT NOW?
“The thing is that this takes [a lot of] money. But something exciting happened to me recently. There’s a major worldwide organisation called World Patent Marketing (WPM), which became interested in my work and invited me to join the advisory board…”
Mallett goes into what a wonderful group of visionaries of science and technology, that World Patent Marketing are. The truth is that Scott J. Cooper, CEO of WPM, was already getting sued by some of his patent customers before this interview was published and by the time it had been released online, the FTC had already stepped in and raided the place.
“The total amount to accomplish everything we are hoping to, both with space manipulation and time manipulation is probably going to be about $500 million, altogether”.
$500 million indicates to me that Scott J. Cooper was planning on defrauding Silicon Valley level billionaires, or groups of multimillionaires and Mallett was going along for the ride. Mallett had already started a company, Time Travel Technologies, with Cooper, which was registered with the state of Florida and then was brought under the WPM umbrella.
“So $500 million is a bargain! I mean, you’re talking about something that has practical applications, that could actually directly affect all of our lives, and revolutionise how we live. Once again, WPM has allowed this develop this, so it’s really very, very exciting for me. And we’re going to keep things very transparent, and involve the people…”
That’s another lie. Keep things transparent? They couldn’t even keep them transparent in their fundraising effort – there’s a screen where they used an ABC News story about scientists considering the possibilities of time travel, but Scott Cooper’s cronies made it appear as though the story was about Mallett’s research. In fact, Mallett’s not mentioned anywhere in the story and you can see for yourself at http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=98062&page=1. Their fundraising video, promoting a “theoretical commodity” called Time Travel X, was being promoted as a way to invest in time travel but have the investment linked to the value of Bit Coin. In reality, the value was linked to the perceived value of Ronald Mallett’s non-existent research which I was going to crush with real developments Mallett couldn’t match. When Cooper and Mallett actually launched Time Travel X for $799, I immediately contacted the Florida’s AG’s office with a full-blown report, citing multiple possible infractions of the Florida state law 817.06, against misrepresentation in advertising, not knowing that the FTC was already moving in against WPM and Cooper for the same reasons, concerning his patent promotion schemes. The AG’s office informed me that my report was being sent to the FTC investigators, one of whom later told me that in a deposition, Cooper said, “What? You didn’t really think we were going to make a time machine did you? No, we were going to develop the spin-off technologies for communications!” Now a judge has shut down FTC pending the trial and with it, any significant chance of Mallett ever getting funded.
Evidence of FRAUD. A screen grab from the World Patent Marketing site where they had started to offer Time Travel X for the price of $799 per unit. However, the basis on which it was being offered was rife with lies, which the Florida AG’s office saw fit to send to the Federal Trade Commission.
Video clip in which Mallett makes a big deal of the idea of sending binary code to the past, forgetting completely that the neutrons he would be sending would be undetectable by any one without a neutron detector…
Caught on tape: Ronald Mallett thinks he’s making a valid point about parallel universes – clueless to the research of German astrophysicist, Rainer Plaga, that pointed to the way of detecting them without having a time machine.
SO YOU’RE GETTING READY TO MOVE FROM THE THEORETICAL TO EXPERIMENTAL PHASE, TO ACTUALLY TEST YOUR THEORIES AND GET A DEVICE GOING. DO YOU HAVE A DESIGN IN PLACE?
Motherland Magazine is an Indian firm and this allows Mallett to point out that his technical assistant, a laser expert named, Chandra Roychoudhuri, is originally from India. Then he prattles on about how they’re going to build his stack of ring lasers. I’ve heard it all before.
I KNOW HE WAS THE MOTIVATION BEHIND ALL THIS, BUT NOW THAT YOU’RE CLEARER ABOUT WHAT’S POSSIBLE AND/OR EASIER, ARE YOU STILL LOOKING AT RECONNECTING WITH YOUR FATHER? OR ARE YOU SAYING THAT WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO MOVE BACK IN TIME LIKE THAT?
Here is one of the few places where Mallett deviates from his previous protocols, again, I believe due to the pressure from my competition.
“There’s going to be a limitation, which we may find that we are able to overcome. One of the things that I’ve been looking at is recently is how quantum physics is affecting all this. What I’ve been talking about so far is pure relativity; when we bring quantum physics into the picture, normally there would be a limitation…”
Here’s why that is just so much BOLLOCKS! I knew about the quantum mechanics as applied to time travel back in the ’90s. Remember, my physics mentor was Fred Alan Wolf? I first met him in ’92. I talked with Mallett about this issue back in 2007. WHAT THE HELL?! It’s 2017 and he’s just now considering it?! He’s a LIAR! Remember? The reason to build a time machine was supposed to be to go back in time and save his father! Since quantum mechanics was the way to get around it – WHAT’S HE BEEN WAITING FOR?! I’ll tell you – again it’s the pressure from me that he’s going to have to do something, anything to maintain his relevance. He doesn’t give a damn about saving his father – he just cares about saving his publicity profile!
He prattles on describing the potential effects of the Uncertainty Principle on attempts at time travel and other details that were sure to go over Ravina’s head, once again. Then he says,”but I’m just beginning my research on that aspect, it’s still developing… but how much that can be modified, and in what way, that’s what I’m looking at right now.”
No, he’s not or he would’ve done it years ago! The reason why he hasn’t done anything about it is because he’s been clinching that life-preserver that he sees Relativity as. As long as he could hide behind the name of Einstein, he felt safe. Now, the pressure is on. Again, he knows breakthroughs are on the way that don’t have a thing to do with him, and he needs to come up with something.
AND WHAT ABOUT TRAVELLING TO THE FUTURE? WOULD THAT BE OPEN ENDED?
“Yes, right now you can go as far as you like into the future, indefinitely, there’s no limit there.”
Again, not true! First of all, barring various methods of suspended animation, there’s no practical method of using Relativity to go to the future. None. Especially with no limit. I’ll give him limits –
1. You need a space program of your own. NASA won’t help. So there’s that and the cash to pay for it.
2. The farther you want to go into the future, the longer you’ll have to be in space flight and that’s going to cost you in fuel.
3. Even with the benefit of time dilation, that will slow the aging rate for you once you’re in flight, there’s a limit. The faster you go, the more fuel you’ll burn and you’ll need to go as close to 40% the speed of light before you hit that gravity well that happens as you approach the speed of light. Big problem though – the Helios 2, launched by NASA, flies around 250,000 kilometers per hour, and it’s only about 0.02% of the speed of light. So forget about it. General Relativity is no better, as I’ll deal with later. The point I’m getting at is Mallett, nor any of the mainstream physicists hawking theories of Relativity, are doing anything at all with practical time travel science. Not one. They don’t even know what it is.
SINCE THERE’S NO TELEPORTING INVOLVED — WHICH WOULD ALLOW YOU TO MOVE PHYSICALLY FROM ONE SPACE TO ANOTHER — WHAT TIME TRAVEL IMPLIES IS THAT YOU’RE STANDING IN THE SAME PLACE, AND THIS IS ALL ONLY AFFECTING YOUR BODY. HOW DO YOU INTERACT WITH THE NEW TIME YOU’RE IN?
This question is a sure sign that Ravina is missing something in her comprehension of what’s going on. “Standing in the same place and this is all only affecting your body?” makes no sense on its face and I don’t know how she would even think that. Just as a quick aside, time travel, the real practical type under development now, affects your body by suddenly translating you into the new result of that time travel. Outside observers would see you disappear suddenly, but it isn’t quite teleportation…
“Okay, what we’d be able to do is…if you turn it on the [time machine] and leave it on for 100 years, then people 100 years from now can send back information all the way back to any point in the timeline up till the moment the machine was switched on…So the way I like to say it, is that our descendants will be able to communicate with us, but we won’t be able to communicate with them.”
AND IF YOU STEP OUTSIDE OF THE VORTEX THE TIME MACHINE IS CREATING, YOU COULD INTERACT WITH OTHER PEOPLE IN THAT TIME? IS THAT IT?
“Absolutely. As soon as you step outside the region that’s being affected by the device, you can rejoin everyone else. As long as you decide, well, I’m not gonna stay here 100 years, maybe 50, you could do that.”
Nonsense! This is an other issue that was brought up at MarCon in 2007, to which Mallett had no answer. Again, it goes to engineering and design. For a human size version of this thing, how do you step outside a vortex that’s being created by LASERS?! What about the radiation? Mallett shrugged it off as simply an engineering problem to be solved and acted as though it doesn’t affect the validity of his idea. Yeah, right…
WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS — ETHICAL, UNINTENDED — OF BEING ABLE TO CHANGE THE PAST BY TRAVELLING DOWN THE TIMELINE? ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT/CHAOS THEORY?
This is where it is very clear that Ravina has done no serious studying of the subject, at all, and is relying on what she knows from pop culture. The butterfly effect is overrated and not understood by people like Ravina who go around quoting it. Edward Lorenz, the man it’s attributed to, stated, “‘If the flap of a butterfly’s wings can be instrumental in generating a tornado, it can equally well be instrumental in preventing a tornado.’ And that would be impossible for us to know.” My point being is that all of us, everyday, cause a butterfly effect in one way or the other. We just don’t think about it. I studied it in the ’90s when I was learning about quantum mechanics. The net result is that people get bent out of shape when it gets applied to time travel because they think it will change history. It doesn’t matter because any changes that happen won’t be to their history.
Mallett’s response illustrates just why he’s out of his depth –
“…Yes, unintended consequences could occur, and that will be an important factor… because once we can travel back, we could in fact potentially affect things that will change our timeline.”
Never mind the fact that this patently false, just remember that he’s said it.
“It will have beneficial effects — imagine if we could warn ourselves of tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes; think of the thousands of lives we could save… ”
This is it – where Mallett proves he lacks the brains for time travel and should just get the Hell out of it. Let me explain – if we warn ourselves in the past about something that has already happened, why didn’t we do it before it happened the first time, for us? Because it hadn’t happened yet. So from the stand-point of being in the past, how is it that we could be getting a message from the future – warning us? Using linear thinking, it makes no sense on that level alone – never mind the geometry that it describes which would allow for the kind of feedback energy build-up that Stephen Hawking invokes as part of his chronology protection conjecture. The simple fact is that it’s missing the FAOC – First Action of Cause that I described in Paradox Lost. In other words, the first point of action. Mallett’s describing an endless loop and doesn’t even realize it. The model for time travel I advocate, using the work of John Archibald Wheeler and Hugh Everett and others, resolves this nonsense but it also rules out the need to fund Mallett’s idea because of its other technical issues.
“People might decide that they want to change things for their own personal benefit, and that would affect everyone else. There’s going to have to be some serious regulations for time travel…it’s going to require worldwide cooperation at the level of, like, the UN.”
Yeah, right. That’s why I wrote my report, Paradox Lost for selected members of Congress – so they’d know better when they heard crap like this from Ronald Mallett or anyone else. In fact, I put him in the report and why his position is wrong. You see, statements like this are dangerous to time travel research and I didn’t want any threats to legitimate research to happen before it could be used for what I know it’s being developed for in the private sector – escape to the past. The irony is, it appears that Mallett’s own statements like that are what kept him from getting funding from the National Science Foundation! After all, why should they fund something so dangerous!
He then starts talking about the Grandfather Paradox nonsense before getting to the point –
“This is why I said that quantum physics is going to be important to my future research — it seeks to show a way out of that paradox, because it has to do with parallel universes. This notion of parallel universes, by the way, was not developed for time travel, it was actually developed back in 1957 by a man named Hugh Everett III. He was a physicist at Princeton, and what he did was to apply quantum theory to the universe as a quantum whole (we normally apply quantum theory only to different physical systems). ”
Now Mallett is invoking parallel universes which make the things that caused his calls for global regulation of time travel, irrelevant! Remember?
NOW HOW DOES IT APPLY TO TIME TRAVEL?
Mallett tells Ravia about David Deutsch from Oxford University who applied the many-world’s interpretation to time travel and states that, “the moment you arrive in the past, there’s actually a split — you will arrive in a parallel universe in which you could do something like prevent your grandparents from meeting each other, but you will just find yourself in a strange universe in which you were never born…You will have arrived in that other universe, where your grandparents meet each other, have your parents, who have you… so what it says is that when you travel back to the past, you arrive in the past of another universe, so it doesn’t affect anything, it doesn’t create/give you paradoxes.”
Mallett has botched it. First of all, Deutsch said that when you would go back in time, you would be “in the past of another universe” where you could do what you want because there’s be no causal connection to the one you came from. He didn’t say anything about a split and arriving in one where you weren’t born as well (in the grandfather paradox case). In my research for my special report to Congress, I identified a flaw in Deutsch’s thinking due to the fact that there would still be a paradox because you weren’t in that past of a parallel universe before, as a time traveler, either. I solved it by applying John Archibald Wheeler’s Participatory Universe model, and his ‘it from bit’ to the quantum mechanics of the situation to show that you would actually arrive in a new, parallel universe copy of the past that didn’t exist before. This solution resolves, as well, issues dealing with conservation of energy and entropy increase issues. This is the real foundation of time travel, and, if Mallett was as smart as advertised, he could’ve figured this all out back in the ’90s. Good for me he didn’t and now I’ve proved it with a series of physical experiments, but I yet, digress…
WELL, WHAT’S THE POINT OF THAT?
Forget Mallett, for a moment. I’ll answer her question – the point is that’s the way it works in the real world. That’s the science she should have learned when she was looking at the quantum mechanics of the subject. Remember? There is no other way that time travel works out. Maybe if Ravina had done some serious research instead of an obvious pop science crash course, she’d already have known that. Then of course, she’d know that talking to Mallett is a waste of time unless she wanted to ask him some hard questions, instead of this soft ball fluff she was pitching. Then her interview would have had much more original material in it.
“Look, that’s just one possible model… the only way to really tell is when we do the real experiment itself. That’s why I said that when you bring quantum mechanics to the picture… it gets more complicated.”
That’s exactly what he said in The Worlds First Time Machine, when David Deutsch was talking about parallel universes, and at that time travel panel we were on in 2007, and I challenged him there and then to name what other theory that would allow for time travel without paradox that would fit, and he just sat there, dumbfounded. I’ve got the whole thing recorded and will be released as part of an upcoming audio documentary on time travel. Mallett believes his own hype too much – as if we won’t know if parallel universes are real or not until we do his experiment. As I’ve said, I’ve already done it, in part due to the 1995 work of Rainer Plaga.
Photos of Mallett and I in 2007 at the MarCon Science Fiction Convention panel on time travel:
Mallett had gone off the rails so far I finally couldn’t take it anymore…
Mallett taken back a bit, as I start laying down my expertise on parallel universes and time travel.
Notice now, how he begins to scowl. It was the moment he really started realize I wasn’t just some “fan” of the time travel subject, but an expert in my own right, and knew more than he did and I still do.
COULD THIS BE CONSIDERED LIFE EXTENSION TECHNOLOGY, IN A SENSE? WHERE PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TO DIE BECAUSE THEY KEEP SKIPPING (BACK AND FORTH) THAT EXACT MOMENT IN WHICH THEY DIE?
“No, you can’t avoid that, no matter what you do.”
Finally Mallett gives a straight, accurate answer. Ravina’s question is prompted in part, I surmise, by the idea of quantum immortality, which suggests that an alternative to every outcome exists in a parallel universe. So, if you die, you live anyway, in a parallel world. That only works so far. If your body starts breaking down with age, eventually the probability of survival everywhere will be zero. Ravina, however, has mangled the question a bit, by asking if people “don’t have to die because they keep skipping (back and forth) that exact moment that they die”. What? If it’s the exact moment that they die, they’re dead and can’t go anywhere. As they say in science circles, that’s not even wrong...
DO YOU HAVE A NAME FOR YOUR DEVICE YET?
“Well, we have the company, which is called Space Time Technologies, because we’re talking about a revolutionary way to affect space, as well as time, and all of the technology that will help with that…”
Actually, that’s not true. First of all, his original name for it was LOTART – Laser Optical Time Machine And Receiver Transmitter. The project was, Space-Time Twisting by Light. I know what he’s talking about. At one point, in a press release, WPM used that name, Space Time Technologies, for the new company but it was never registered. The original company name was Time Travel Technologies and it was never officially changed. Space Time Technologies is owned by Timothy J. Tucker and appears to have no relation with Cooper or Mallett.
I READ SOMEWHERE THAT YOU KEPT YOUR RESEARCH ON TIME TRAVEL SECRET FOR A VERY LONG TIME….
He talks about how he was afraid to let his colleagues know of his interest in time travel for years, until one wanted him to do a lecture on it at the University of Michigan. From that, New Scientist did the cover story that first got Mallett publicity and unfortunately, set the bad standard of giving him undeserved credit. He mentions, New Scientist, but the cover story read, Flashback: Introducing The World’s First Time Machine, an exaggeration of fact, clearly, but it set the precedent. By the time Ben Bowie did his film on Mallett, with that same basic title, The World’s First Time Machine, it was all down hill from there, with the truth trampled underfoot and no one in the media caring what it was.
IS THERE ANYONE ELSE’S WORK IN THIS FIELD THAT YOU THINK IS HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AS WELL?
“I should mention that there are other physicists who have looked at time travel, and there are two other main ideas. There’s Kip Thorne [who brought real science to the movie Interstellar], who’s looking at time travel to the past using wormholes, and Richard Gott at Princeton who’s looking at using cosmic strings. So that work’s been going on also.”
Of course he’s not going to mention me, which is fine. He’s an elitist. Although he’ll complain about how hard it was to get recognition in the physics world because he was black, he’ll deal out the elitist privilege card without hesitation when it suits him. Remember. I know him. However, that other work is about as worthless as Mallett’s. No one is going to get a cosmic string and Kip Thorne has more mistakes in his theory on using wormhole mouths for time travel than Mallett does in his theory. A lot more. Like 17. But Thorne isn’t saying that his theory will work, if someone just gives him enough money.
WEREN’T YOU USING YOUR RESEARCH ON BLACK HOLES AS A COVER FOR STUDYING TIME TRAVEL?
“Yes, I kept my time travel research a secret by studying black holes, which is also important… Remember Einstein’s theory says that gravity slows time down? So the closer you get to a black hole, the more time will slow down…So, in a sense, a black hole can act as an actual time machine”.
And that’s also how he knows so little about time travel – because time travel isn’t about General Relativity or black holes. How are you going to study time travel from observing an object that is beyond our reach? The nearest black hole is 1,600 light years away. I’ve already done the calculations – 4,000 years. That’s how long it would take a robotic, or human multi-generational mission, to reach said object, do tests and then for Earth to receive the radio transmitted the results. That’s why any scientist – I don’t care who they are, claiming to know about time travel, that opens their pie hole talking about black holes, just needs to shut up. No one’s doing anything with a black hole. So he studied black holes. What did it get him? Absolutely nothing, but misled down the wrong rabbit hole and years building a career that’s now on the precipice of total and complete destruction. If Mallett had actually been determined to study time travel, instead of being afraid (after all, he didn’t have to advertise it), he might actually know something useful by now. The science of time travel is directly related to the confluence of quantum mechanics and information physics. Why didn’t he study those? By now, you should know that answer…
DOES STEPHEN HAWKING KNOW WHAT YOU’RE UP TO?
“[Laughs uproariously] “Yes, as a matter of fact, he actually does! If you look up The Real Story of Time Travel on YouTube, I was on a segment with Stephen Hawking and Richard Gott, and they also had Paul Davies, who’s been an advocate of using wormholes. So they’re… aware of me, yes.”
I looked for this film and there is no record of it anywhere. I checked Youtube, IMDB, and just the web in general. There is no production listed with that name, nor with those physicists all in the same film. I’m not saying that it doesn’t exist but it’s not where Mallett said to look and there is no film listed by that title. However, there’s reason to believe that Mallett was pulling a slight of hand there. I know that the author of the book, The New Time Travelers, David Toomey, told me that both Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne said that they didn’t want to be in his book if he had Ronald Mallett in it. I tested Thorne myself, by sending him an email that asked his opinion of Mallett’s work and if he felt that Mallett would be able to meet the energy requirements for his time machine to work. I was waiting to see if I got some kind of emotional response that would indicate the type of dislike for Mallett, that Toomey implied. I got a terse one word reply – “No”. This incident is recounted, with many additional details, in my 2015 book, Space Warps and Time Tunnels: The Infamous Legacy of One Stephen W. Hawking.
Now that doesn’t mean that the film doesn’t exist, as I said, but what it does mean is that Mallett offered evidence that couldn’t be substantiated.
AND…? WHAT DOES HE THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE PROPOSING?
“They think that the mathematics associated with the idea, and the physics of it, is okay, but from the technological standpoint, it’s going be difficult to travel back into the past because the energies that that requires are great. And I agree with them. Travelling back to the past using this is going to be extremely difficult. It’s going to require engineering innovation that will only develop as we develop our research.”
That’s a lie and he knows it. First of all, they don’t agree with his mathematics. Second, there is no engineering solution that will fix it because its design won’t work – even if there were no energy problems. It’s because his model for time is wrong. I proved it, emphatically, in my second paper about his research, The Invalidation of the Time Travel Physics, of the Ronald L. Mallett LOTART Design By The Rachel, Emily and Suzy Experiments of Marshall Barnes, R&D Eng, a devastating technical review of Mallett’s provisional patent application for his time machine design as a method of sending information to the past. An application that he talked about in his book of 2006, but failed to mention that he let it expire. I know. I called the patent office and checked. It’s in my paper. So there is no patent for his design and anyone can use it now, for all it’s worthlessness. But I’m taking it, and converting it into something that might.
Second of all, he admits again that the energy requirements to go to the past (using General Relativity) are going to be great, which means, once again, that all the accolades that he got were unearned. He’s done nothing beyond what any other physicist has proposed!
It also points out how Mallett, in his arrogance and ignorance, ignored other research in the field that could’ve given him a clues on how to build that time machine to see his father – Rainer Plaga’s 1997 paper on how to detect parallel universes. It was the foundation, in part, that led to the new, human time travel theories I covered in my paper, Tim Folger Discovers A Time Machine. Ironically, it involves lasers, meaning if Mallett had actually been studying time travel related science literature, and was a smart as advertised, he could’ve figured out what I know now, in the last century! But, I’m beginning to repeat myself, I fear. Talking about Ronald Mallett causes you to do that…
Second, he told the audience at the 2007 MarCon science fiction convention that it was going to take engineering innovation to solve particular problems back then, but that was when he was saying he wouldn’t have the massive energy requirements. Like I said before, if he had been serious about building a time machine, he would’ve gotten a background in applied physics or engineering. Oh, but that’s right – he didn’t have the aptitude for it!
ARE THE WORMHOLE AND COSMIC STRING APPROACHES EASIER? I REALLY HOPE YOU ARE ALL RACING EACH OTHER ON THIS, AND THERE’S SERIOUS COMPETITION INVOLVED.
Interesting question, seeing as how Mallett had already lost the race for a time machine device that operates on a small-scale and could be scaled up, and now the ultimate machine is being designed. But Navina, intimating that Mallett is in a competition with Gott and Thorne, is like speculating on which of 3 snails is going to win the next Boston Marathon.
“[Laughs] I think there probably is some competition somewhere, but the nice thing for me is that I’m talking about something I can develop in a lab, as opposed to looking out at space and hoping you can find a cosmic string.”
Again, he goofs up, reverting back to his original shtick. Remember, his November 2015 admission? It will take energy on the level of “stellar quantities” to twist time, using his methods. He can no longer develop his idea in a lab! He can laugh all he wants, but he’s in the same boat now as Gott and Thorne, at least as far as practicality is concerned. However, both those men still have their honor and integrity. Ronald Mallett has none.
LET’S SAY IT WASN’T SO COMPLICATED TO TRAVEL BACK IN TIME, LET’S SAY YOU COULD DO IT. IS THERE ANYONE OR ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES YOUR FATHER THAT YOU’D LIKE TO CONNECT WITH?
I’d want to see some of the great things of the past — I’d like to see what ancient Rome was like, and ancient Egypt…And I love music, one of my favourite composers is Chopin. It would be fun to actually see him perform… What would yours be?
Mallett’s answer is typical of someone who’s never seriously considered time travel to the past and its practical ramifications. He wants to go to ancient Rome and Egypt, for example and yet speaks none of the languages. In order to do either, he would require more than one person expert in the types of language spoken during those eras, the proper currency – either new coins made from the designs of originals or gold, silver or other valuables that would be used for trade, and a security detail. At least Ravina’s idea is more practical.
I’M GOING TO GO WITH MICHAEL JACKSON TILL I’VE HAD TIME TO THINK ABOUT THIS. AND SINCE I DON’T HAVE TO TRAVEL THAT FAR BACK IN TIME FOR THAT, MINE’S EASY. GOOD LUCK WITH ANCIENT ROME.
“[Laughs] But what this shows, is that everyone has some notion of what they would like to do if they could go back to the past or into the future. If things are fascinating now, what’s it going to be like in 100 years?”
100 years indeed. The current research is picking up steam exactly because people doubt that there will be a civilization in 10 years, let alone 100. Two billionaires in Silicon Valley are said to be funding research to figure out a way to escape what they think is a simulated universe. The reason is still the same. We’re all afraid Johnny Rotten got it right. No future. God save the Queen indeed…
Mallett continues on with his wide eyed sales pitch about how great the future could be and then he returns to the subject of World Patent Marketing.
“We take for granted what, for instance, the Wright brothers did, what people like Steve Jobs did… they were all visionaries. This company that I’m now a part of, WPM, they have that visionary outlook as well, and I think that’s the reason why this sort of thing is actually going to happen.”
Of course we know exactly what happened – exactly as I predicted. WPM has been effectively destroyed by the FTC and Time Travel X has gone down with it. Meanwhile, the fall out from the debacle has begun, with the total and complete destruction of Mallett’s career already under way with his deletion from the African American Registry and TEDxVienna and more disgraces to come. Simultaneously, developments in time travel are racing toward fruition without Mallett (or any of the members of the Relativistic fraternity), and the word of his true role with WPM is slowly beginning to spread despite attempts at a cover-up by the Miami New Times, who I know first hand, blatantly obfuscated evidence implicating Mallett in the attempted expansion of Scott J. Cooper’s fraud schemes – evidence that was compelling enough for the Florida Attorney General’s office to forward it to the FTC, as they were shutting down Cooper’s offices. I know, because I gave the same information, and more, to Miami New Times reporter, Brittany Shammas. What did they do with it? Left out all the facts of his involvement, and made it look like he was a victim as well.
What kind of evidence? Here’s Mallett on Facebook, promoting Time Travel X in violation of Florida Law 817.06, which covers “an advertisement of any sort regarding such certificate, diploma, document, credential, academic credits, merchandise, security, service or anything so offered to the public, which advertisement contains any assertion, representation or statement which is untrue, deceptive, or misleading”.
Hello Everyone, Yesterday, July 4, was the official project launch announcement for Time Travel Technologies. The World Patent Marketing promotional video for the project can be seen at: http://timetravelx.com
In the coming months project developments will be announced.
So, the question is why did the Miami New Times just do a rehash of the WPM scandal story, already covered by the media and ignore the real new story – how the famous Ronald Mallett colluded with WPM CEO Scott J. Cooper in an unlawful attempt to perpetrate an even larger expansion of WPM’s fraudulent activities? Why did the Miami New Times cover-up the evidence and white wash Mallett? To Hell with the Miami New Times. By doing so, they’ve unwittingly enabled Mallett to continue his fraudulent activities and if he gets anymore money – it’s on their heads. I’m branding them with it. They’re now branded as enablers of a proven con artist and fraud whom they’ve protected from public scrutiny. And the media wonders why people don’t trust the media anymore.
Mallett, as he is prone to do, has tossed Cooper under the bus, claiming that months before the FTC take down, he had left the company’s board of director’s, dissatisfied that they hadn’t raised any money for him. The truth is there is no objective evidence for that and as you have read, Mallett was singing WPM’s praises to Narvina. In reality, Mallett barely escaped unscathed, because if any of the Time Travel X units had been sold, he could’ve been charged with theft by deception because of the fraudulent materials used to sell Time Travel X, materials that he himself promoted on Twitter and Facebook. If that had happened, you can bet I’d be testifying as an expert witness against him. That’s how really stupid Ronald Mallett is.
(As an aside, any of you claiming this isn’t true, as Ronald Mallett fans are apt to, I have an entire file of court room ready evidence that I have prepared to use in any legal action that Mallett may use against me or that I may testify in as an expert witness against Scott J. Cooper and Ronald Mallett. A top law firm in the nation’s capital has reviewed it and it is of the quality where I can say these things and level these accusations because the defense against defamation is the truth and, each one of these things I have turns the truth from a defensive tool, into an offensive weapon. Remember – it was good enough for the Florida AG’s office to send to the Federal Trade Commission to begin with, and I have even more – now).
AND WHEN MIGHT THAT BE? WHEN ARE YOU HOPING TO SWITCH THE DEVICE ON?
“Well, what we’re going to do is first just get things started experimentally this year. There will be a big announcement soon to let people know about the beginning and progress of this project.”
And there we have it – once again. The only evidence of time travel on Ronald Mallett’s part – the never-ending, closed time-like curve of his always starting the project and never getting there before he’s getting close to starting it again. Of course now we all know why – because there isn’t any project, because there hasn’t been any valid research, because Ronald Mallett is a fraud and a con artist who admittedly lacks the aptitude to be an experimenter and has proved that he lacked the aptitude to even get his own theory right. And now, WPM has been destroyed, as well.
The only question to be determined is when will the media wise-up and stop contributing to this farce, which makes them look stupid? The Ronald Mallett story has been the original fake news, regardless of your politics. After all, if the news media keeps reporting the same story, over and over again – that other media have already told for near 20 years now, when does it ever, ever stop being news? But then again, that’s how closed time-like curves act. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Over and over and over again…
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME. I KNOW I TOOK UP MORE THAN I ASKED FOR, BUT MAYBE YOU CAN JUST FIX THAT WITH YOUR RING LASER OR SOMETHING AND PRETEND I DIDN’T.
That shouldn’t be any problem for Ronald Mallett. All he is, and ever has been – with his ring laser, is pretend…
