BROOKLYN, N.Y. - May 13, 2019 - PRLog -- Internationally noted R & D engineer and recognized STEM educator, Marshall Barnes, has written a
scathing article published by Futurism.media taking Spike Lee's new film to task on several fronts. See You Yesterday, a time travel themed film dealing with police shooting an innocent black teen, is directed by Stefon Bristol and co-written by Fredrica Bailey. Barnes, a leading pioneer in time travel science, having attracted the most funding so far of anyone and showing dramatic progress, has been a strident critic of time travel fiction in the media for repeatedly getting the science so wrong. Lee's See You Yesterday is no exception. If anything, Marshall's making good on a promise to no longer support offerings from the genre that are full of "bollocks". In other words, paradoxes, time loops, and other time travel sci-fi tropes his scientific research has proved impossible.
No mere armchair critic, Marshall has made several major breakthroughs in quantum mechanics, including experiments proving the Everett Interpretation of quantum mechanics true - the theory a growing number of physicists cite as making time travel possible. He's the only person on record saying they'd bet against Stephen Hawking on the Higgs Boson's non-existence after Hawking announced his position in 2008. Marshall was right.
Marshall points out damning flaws in the film, undermining its credibility. For one, if the teens are supposed to be geniuses, why does Dante Crichlow's character say Einstein worked his whole life on trying to make time travel real? Although many physicists link the possibility for time travel to Einstein's theories of relativity, none say he worked on time travel. Marshall points out there are no useful solutions found there, which is why most physicists are clueless on how to get the job done. Furthermore, Marshall quotes Einstein on his surprise that Kurt Godel could find solutions to closed time-like curves in general relativity, showing Einstein hadn't been thinking about time travel when doing his work, let alone spent his whole life working on it.
Other time travel flaws include the notion that determinism plays a part in it when Marshall has proven the only way time travel to the past can work is through the Everett Interpretation and the very core of that is the notion there are multiple outcomes for every event. So all events are possible results for time travel.
"When I saw that kid saying that, I literally couldn't believe it," Marshall explains. "I mean - right there was blatant evidence no one did their home work on the science in this flick and quite frankingly, I'm sick and tired of stupid writers that don't know how to crack open a book before they start writing about something that they clearly are clueless about, And I'm sorry, seeing every popular time travel movie doesn't qualify anyone as a time travel expert because every single one of the most popular time travel movies IS WRONG! So that makes them an expert on BOLLOCKS."
Marshall laughs, thinking about the latest Avengers movie, which involves time travel - because of the scene when other Avengers try to say why their mission won't work, by rattling off popular, well known, time travel movies - which Marshall says get time travel wrong.
"And then this new blend of the Hulk and Bruce Banner, that everyone is calling, Professor Hulk, says 'I don't know why everyone believes that but that isn't true!' I cheered."
But time travel rules aren't the only serious flaws in the Lee film. As Marshall points out, the students are supposed to be geniuses and yet they think they'll get a full ride at a big college after showing off their tech at a science expo.
"How can they be so naive as to think they won't get a visit from half the alphabet agencies in the country and wisked away?" Marshall points out. The writers have these kids doing the dumbest things after promoting them as being so smart.
Marshall has every right to be critical of how the two teen characters are portrayed in a film that touts the value of STEM education. Marshall is a recognized STEM expert who proved that J.R. Oppenheimer's conjecture that children can see solutions in complex physics problems that scientists miss. Not mentioned in the article, but included in his bio, is the fact that he was the top STEM professional for National Lab Day two years in a row, and was a member of Scientific American's 1,000 Scientists for 1,000 Days STEM program.
Another problem for Spike, is this film reminds people of Spike's announcing he would make a film on the life of University of Connecticut physics professor and "time travel scientist", Ronald Mallett, who's now been exposed as a fraud, liar, con man and connected to the World Patent Marketing scandal with former acting U.S. Attorney General, Matt Whitaker. In this article, Marshall not only shows the invalidation of Mallett's work by his recent experiments, but Mallett's frauds to be exposed in an upcoming book, whose cover is featured at the bottom of the article. Included as well is evidence of Mallett's breaking Florida law concerning commercial misrepresentation.
"The value of the Ronald Mallett story is being totally destroyed," Marshall said. "Spike needs to realize he's been had, like the rest of us, and drop it."
