InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he reflects on how Einstein’s theory of relativity treats time as relative to the speed travelled by various observers. The faster one travels, the slower time moves. So, at the speed of light, time stops completely. A human being traveling at the speed of light could traverse the entire universe without growing one day older. Yet, from the point of an observer, the trip would have taken billions of years. Jeffrey suggests that this scientific fact has enormous implications for the potential of our consciousness.
