"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit Crumb. I'm continuing my investigation into the concepts of time travel yesterday. I mentioned three resources. Final countdown. A movie where you can watch. Martin Sheet explained the grandfather paradox of time to Kirk Douglas. Kind of a fun movie came out in the eighties and Christopher Reeves in his movie somewhere in time takes it to a mental intellectual level kind of away from what physicists would like to think when they think of time travel and of course. There's the book by She. Wells time travel Idea that you could just go to the future. Go to the pass by pulling a switch on a machine. One of the things that happened yesterday was I mentioned the grandfather paradox of time and I gave you a place to watch Martin. She talk about this. I got a lot of emails saying why. Don't you explain it? So here goes this kind of scattered a little bit but give you an idea. Besides a physical problem time travel may also come with some unique situations a classic example. Is the grandfather paradox. Which time travel? It goes back and kills his parents or his grandfather. The major plot line terminator movies interferes in their relationship. Now think back to the future so that he has never born or as life is forever altered. That's back to future if that were to happen. Some physicists say you would not be born in one parallel universe but still born and another others say that the photons it makeup light prefer self consistency and time lies which would interfere with your evil suicidal plan. Some scientists disagree with the options mentioned above. And say time travel is impossible no matter what. Your method. The faster than light. One in particular drew derision from American Museum of Natural History astrophysicist Charles Lou that simply mathematically doesn't work you said also humans may not be able to withstand time travel at all. And that's what we're lucky nap today. Several theories time travel traveling. Nearly the speed of light would be necessary and take some kind of centrifuge. But that would be lethal. So let's go back to the beginning and say what is time while most people think of time as a constant physicist Albert Einstein showed a time is an illusion it is relative it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space to Einstein. Time is the fourth dimension space is described as a three dimensional. Orito and we know that we have up and down forward and back left and right those who are dimensions but he talks about a fourth dimension which provides traveler with coordinates such as length width and height showing location. And then that fourth dimension provides another coordinate or direction although conventionally it only moves forward. Einstein's theory of special relativity says time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else approaching the speed of light. A person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also under Einstein's theory of general relativity gravity can ban time picture a four dimensional fabric. Call Space Time. When anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric it causes a dimple or bending of space time. Let's stop and talk about this fourth dimension for a moment if you look into a Koi pond and you see the fish and they have is on either side of their head they are two dimensional creature stay left and right and they can move forward and back. There is nothing about them. There is no third dimension so if I grabbed one of the Koi and lifted about of a pond that would introduce the Koi to a third dimension so what Einstein in his speaking of this fourth dimension or call what he calls Space Time. That is something that is above us. It is literally another dimension so there you have the idea of Space Time. What that is that is that fourth dimension that's above us like the third dimension this above a Koi pond for example objects move on a curved path in that curvature of space is what we know as gravity both general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS Satellite Technology. That has very accurate time. Pieces on board the effects of gravity as well as satellites increase speed above the earth relative to observers on the ground. Make at the UN adjustable clocks gained thirty eight microseconds a day in a sense. This effect called time. Dilation means astronauts are time travelers as they returned to earth very very slightly younger than they're identical twins that remain on the planet. One possibility could be to go faster than light which travels at one hundred and eighty six thousand two hundred and eighty two miles per second. That would be a vacuum Einstein's equations though show that an object at the speed of light would have both infinite mass and a zero of length. Go figure that s beyond me.
A little extra Time
"Welcome to catch myths and mysteries. Shyam your host kid chrome with everybody shelter in place. I thought it might be interesting to talk about time travel and with that in. Mind the paradox of time on time. Paradoxes any logical contradiction that has to do with time travel. The Classic Paradox Time Falls into the classic grandfather paradox. The grandfather paradox who's usually the screenplay turn novel then movie where the U. S. Nimitz is caught in a storm of thrush and back in time to December sixth nineteen forty one. The dilemma is what the crew knows. What's going to happen? But the grandfather paradox of time gets in the way when the past is changed. It creates a contradiction. The time traveller could do anything that did happen but can't do anything that didn't well an aircraft carrier the size of the Nimitz didn't exist back in nineteen forty one so anything they could have done would have altered the future in a big way. Fortunately the storm that sent them back in time reappeared and brought them back to their time before they could decide what to do for a little more detail watch the movie. The final countdown. I think it came out in the nineteen eighties. Should you can listen to Martin. Sheen explained the grandfather paradox. To Kirk Douglas. The topic of time travel bags of big question. How would travelers go forward or back in time? H She wells painted a picture of a time machine with his book. The time machine. It was simply a vehicle for going forward or back with little regard to the visitors passed or impact on the future or past for the past for that matter that then we have screenwriter Richard. Matheson who wrote somewhere in time and takes the issue of time travel to a new level in the movie. Christopher Reeves is a young theater students celebrating the success of his latest production when the party is interrupted by an elderly woman who break Suda crowd of well-wishers Impresa lock into his hand Luxembourg. The says come back to me long story short. He traces Salak at back. To a stage. Actress of Nineteen twelve and her summer retreat that has been restored to pristine nineteen twelve decor. He buys clothes from the era right down to the socks. He wears a pocket wash from that era than rents a room and focuses on all things nineteen twelve and remember. He's surrounded in a room and a facility that is all nineteen twelve and ZAP when he ventures back out into the hall so hours later it is indeed nine thousand nine hundred twelve and elderly woman is there and a romance began one day. It is raining so they decided to have a picnic and Gorse at some point. She asked the time when he pulls out the pocket. Watch a penny from nineteen. Eighty comes out with it and the spell is broken. Well all this talk of time. Travel's seems a stuff of fiction. The what about Deja Vu? The feeling that you've been there before or met that person before done that thing before could it be that you've visited another time and have a flash memory of the person you met. L. Let's bring it home. The was the last time that a day week or month just seemed to Fi- yet your routine hadn't changed. I can remember going to the gym a specific time day or I would meet a friend. We always did the same routine but after a year or so. We noticed that we were finished sooner than before our next meeting. We TIMED ISH. Exercise routine and the gaps between each workout. The Times were always the same yet. We would finish at different times out of that work at one meeting. We had to stop and re park our cars yet. We completed our usual routine at the same time we had established and still finished early. Not Time travel but perhaps time slip. The Earth spins at Specific Rate. Plants grow in predictable period of time. Are we humans of variable our perception of time altered for seemingly? No reason when I was in grammar school failed to complete my homework. I could still hear my teacher telling me that we all had the same twenty four hours in the day but do we. The world's most accurate clock has neatly shown how right Albert Einstein was a hundred years ago when he proposed that time is a relative concept and the higher you live above sea level. The faster you should age. Einstein's theory of relativity states at time and space are not as constant as everyday life would

"About the state of the movie business ahead of this weekend's Academy Awards we'll hear more in just a moment but first we want to note the passing of a Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas had a film career spanning seven decades he prided himself on playing the tough guys the sorts of characters that he once described as sons of **** here he is explaining why in an interview that he gave to the BBC back in nineteen seventy two really the public decide what you are you know they react to something and I've always felt more attracted to the part of someone that's got more bad in and and good I've never had any desire to play the big strong good man I'd rather play a big strong bad if I think it as an actor they're usually more challenging and is something more interesting you know people love the rebel people love to identify with the man who's rebelling against society and the the strongest rebels are usually people who are have more bad in them than good well Kirk Douglas off screen had a fine contempt for some of the people that we're talking about today the Hollywood studio establishment Kirk Douglas played a key role in defying Hollywood's anti communist blacklist writers who refused to name names in front of the house un American activities committee were blacklisted in Hollywood unable to find work under pressure from democratic lawmakers well Kirk Douglas along with legendary director Otto Preminger instead made sure to credit blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo on two films in nineteen sixty access and the legendary classic Spartacus Douglas and Preminger's clout in fearlessness helped end the blacklist Booker Douglas served for U. S. presidents in the role of special ambassador and in nineteen eighty one he received the presidential medal of freedom by the way he was nominated for three Oscars for Best Actor Kirk Douglas was a hundred and three back now to our conversation about diversity and the Oscars with advocate April rain Stephen Galloway of Chapman universities Dodge college of film and media arts and vultures hunter Harris at Steven last year you wrote about this concept the new academy verses the old academy what is that also the office to an office so white campaign which we have an incredible impact on Hollywood the present economy who was an African American woman sheriff nicer and the CEO don Hutson eight and it's not true mission to change the nature of the academy and they opened the door to a huge influx of new members mentions gone from roughly six thousand to almost nine thousand protein and which is massive you can either adding you know several hundred new members and they specifically tried to look for accounting and didn't come from the studio world they look to be in the world they looked at the international or foreign world well that's gone is bringing this massive influx of voters who don't support traditional by the way the academy was created by Louis B. Mayer and his colleagues as a way of promoting bad movies and giving them some kind of cough so this is a break in the kind of membership lost to you had two very different films had been going head to head in the battle for Best Picture one with Roma one with green book green book which I like immensely which still is very traditional humanist films on the set this is the best movie of nineteen sixty eight it wasn't what you'd call costing a rona with subtitles made by a Mexican director about the Mexican made it had only people from from from Mexico and and you thought ultra Netflix messes with resistance and actually these include shelf wing for the big win and also will be cream but one that to me was a litmus test of the membership in the end the old style member prevailed over the new ones who wanted fumes preferred Roma and it's gonna be very interested to hear which cost of the membership prevails April Stephen already so you with Steven credits you largely with being the impetus to creating this dichotomy new academy versus old academy how do you judge that tension well I think that Stevens right although I will say that I was incredibly disappointed that green book one last year which really told the story of the white show for they did the black if it I am so it became sort of a driving miss daisy in reverse and in fact we knew after the fact or some during that the doctor Shirley's family was vehemently opposed to the film and so Steven it's absolutely right that it was the old guard again traditionally older white men that made that decision as opposed to the beautifully shot beautifully human movie of Roma and so that is just indicative of what we are facing year after year so then Rome would be its still get had nominations it did still win of the Best Director off got soak it the situation all you know is black and white if you think that movie did incredibly well we didn't win the ultimate prize for the show to this still a huge acceptance of the different countries about a look at Paris like this this is a south Korean it's not it's not the case is not optimistic it's not warm and cuddly it is about well for fast and it ends with one group destroying the other group so that tells you there is a groundswell within the academy that is more than just the part of the membership with us very very significant part of that membership today now let's hear a little bit more from some other films that are nominated this year hunter I'll get your reaction here's a clip from nineteen seventeen by director Sam Mendes in your own time gentleman must be something faith channels you have a brother in the second time in a set they're walking into a trap the orders are to deliver a message calling off tomorrow morning's attack if you fail to it will be a massacre nineteen seventeen they're directed by Sam Mendes and here's a quick look at joker I have some bad news this is the last time we'll be meeting listen the it is us the same questions every week John are you having any negative thoughts one of if hunter hairs eleven nominations for joker ten for nineteen seventeen what's your reaction to those films and the nominations they got honestly I I have to laugh I I feel pretty lukewarm in nineteen seventeen I thought it was beautifully shot and also you know very tense and very kind of rich experience and with joker I was not personally a fan of it but I do understand that you know there is a sense that it is a gritty real version of a lot like the comic book movies you seen in the past but the same time I think the fact that joker nineteen seventeen have tracks so well within the academy is sort of you know further proof of everything we've been talking about there's nothing particularly new or OB on guard about these movies I think a lot of ways they are just newer versions of the kinds of movies the academy always honors I mean sure joker is a comic book leave at the same time stylistically it I mean sort of replicates a lot of these stylistic choices of Martin Scorsese or even if like friends for couple in some ways and I think that kind of idea of like the psychological turmoil within a white man is a pretty well tried identity and idea for an academy award nominated movie nineteen seventeen as as a present before it is it is a beautifully shot classically made more picture it and we've seen a bunch of those be awarded a nominated wears you know something like that for awhile or little women these are movies that sort of amplify the experiences of women who are not typically with that people typically make movies about and suggesting that these experiences are rich enough to be a sort of universal in a way now speaking of fair well let's take a listen strong please tell me and that is dying she doesn't know she can't see anything family thinks better not to tell the Chinese people have signed some people get cancer at the time I have to go to China excuse one and our cousin anything I should be there you can hi to emotions if you call that a well found out there right away that's fair well another woman lead and directed film the got zero nominations this year and April you mention this before it's not that there weren't a lot of films directed by women this year Greta girl work for little women we've mentioned hustlers directed by Lorene Scafaria we mention farewell which we just heard of directed by Lou Lou Wong both snubbed completely and it's not like these movies didn't do well critically speaking mid day got high ratings on sites like rotten tomatoes audiences love them critical acclaim April what accounts for this why can't women break into these major categories when as you said before there were plenty of films directed by women featuring women that that could have could have broken through sure we also had hearing it by Casey lemons right that that didn't receive very many nominations it it's the same issue that we've been discussing for the entire hour who is going to see the films and who has the power to make change with in the voting membership if the voting membership is overwhelmingly white and male they're going to go and see those films or or watch on their laptops the film that reflect their own experience that's not racism or bigotry and discrimination we all do the same thing Hey what's going to make of most comfortable what are we going to relate to most and unfortunately with the with the majority of white men they don't feel as if they can relate to and a little women or the fare well or even parasite and that's why they're not getting the support that they should so again I think we need to talk about the voting membership the structure of the economy because adding in more people but not really moving the needle with respect to percentages isn't enough and then we need to move forward and talk about whether the economy is even still relevant today we're gonna talk about that we're gonna talk about the relevance of the academy let me get to one more film that people are talking about right before we do that hunter parasite we've mention a couple times it's a movie that's gotten some nominations this year I think everybody should see parasite I loved it loved it loved it it was also one of the highest box office numbers for a foreign film in America what do you think pericytes popularity and its success says about how movie going audience is are changing in this country I think a few years ago a Korean subtitled film wouldn't have gotten a lot of traction yeah I don't know if you saw bong joon hose I think I was his golden globes acceptance speech for a screenplay where he said that if you just get over like that little two inch barrier that are subtitles on movies and I thought was like a very a real point that a lot of people are fundamentally and curious about narratives that are from the U. S. R. aren't about white people and parasite shows that you know that's such a bogus and and such an outdated idea because this is a movie that is it's funny it's heartbreaking it's you know devastating and it's such a push and pull of emotions that you're watching a director who's you know working with such a rich palette doing so many things at once and I think that's sort of a popular repair site is that you never know where it's going to go or what to make of it only that you're watching a genius at work well Stephen Galloway work with time is dwindling here but there's an elephant in the room in April may just mentioned it is the academy relevant is are the Oscars relevant do we need the Oscars to help us enjoy the art of film and directors and artists to appear in film up I feel like I love movies frankly I don't watch the Oscars because I don't need them well off the road and we would have spent an hour talking I I suppose you got me there but you made a serious mistake in putting it okay if if they are and and and let's let's make a distinction between you all go through the actual Oscar show which is boring and stodgy and has only once in the past you three come to life in that with the moonlight for all of that yeah that they're relevant in the way the S..
Kirk Douglas, Towering Icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 103
"So that's from the nineteen sixty film Spartacus it's Kirk Douglas in one of the best known scenes of his long Hollywood career Kirk Douglas died yesterday at the remarkable age of a hundred and three throughout the fifties and sixties he embodied a certain romantic idea of Old World masculinity in his films he often made movies about cowboys and soldiers prize fighters and rebels his most famous movie was Spartacus but the movie that made him a Hollywood star with the nineteen forty nine boxing movie champion the person he was in real life often mirrored the tough man that he portrayed on screen Kirk Douglas had a difficult childhood he grew up in New York in extreme poverty he actually was a wrestler and spent time in the navy before his success on Broadway he later went on to make movies that now define the era of Hollywood classics in nineteen eighty one Kirk Douglas received the presidential medal of freedom and fifteen years later he earned an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement Jason Gorder he's a movie critic and a big fan of Kirk Douglas is work and he's here to reflect on the actors impact on the film world to chase and thanks for being here my pleasure and honor to speak about this giant of talent what do you think when you think Kirk Douglas I think somebody that helped change what we think of of modern cinema frankly he's he bridge is very much the gap between sort of the traditional Hollywood leading man that's sort of you know the beautiful dimple in the middle of his chin the incredible physique a sort of sense that we had of the strong man the strong big actor but is also somebody that brought a great deal sensitivity to his character system the steps two wasn't simply a matinee idol who somebody that sort of brought through his performance a dramatic richness that would we'd be exhibited in many of his contemporaries people like Burt Lancaster but also into people like Marlon Brando who get celebrations and more but he also brought a very political a sophisticated political angle to his films he somebody that absolutely shifted the conversation but what it was like to be a performer not simply studio tool but somebody that could take charge of his own career and shift at and that's when the look of the great things that he did everything that we saw after the fact of of these performers that are able to shape their careers much more explicit way he was a pioneer on that front would you consider that is greatest contribution or what for you just it gleams above all the rest I mean for me my personal connection or to serve master pieces which are the films that he did with Kubrick puzzle glory was a film that nobody wanted to make nobody wanted to make this sort of anti war sophisticated look at World War one it was sort of it was a war that nobody was particularly interested in such a grisly film that about moral ambivalence that wasn't really to be taken up and he and his production company Brina named after his mother foster got the money together now a great deal the budget went towards him but nonetheless he gave a shot to this this quirky New York filmmaker called Stanley Kubrick an fifty seven nineteen sixty while he was doing Spartacus the other our grand collaboration there's another director and after a week Douglas realize this is not going to work and he brought in correct now that the dynamic between the two of them was a little tenuous but none the less he brought this to start the superstar director to one of the sort of last big epic Hollywood cast of thousands films and still injected with the with this real subtlety and real intelligence of performance and finally with Spartacus again the connection Douglas Trumbull is it was Kirk Douglas who unapologetically said this blacklisted armed writer is going to get credit actually John F. Kennedy cross the picket line in order to see Spartacus this is what broke the blacklist the famous arms those that were accused of being communists so in so many ways I Kirk Douglas of star power was used for good he was used to bring stories to screen that would have been brought otherwise he brought directors that otherwise Hollywood didn't think that were I'm sufficiently commercial and you brought to light the hypocrisy of actually bring these writers to to dream if for the if you only watch two forms of Kirk Douglas these are ones actually fully sober in you know a lot of people will be doing that tonight I want to play you a clip from almost thirty years ago no looking back I realize I was much more successful when I forgot about being a hit for years I proclaim loudly that a movie must be good entertainment no messages for me but I've changed it must in some small way touch improve humanity that was Kirk Douglas accepting a lifetime achievement award from the American film institute and you can hear that Douglas was ingesting this chiseled jaw line or a typical Hollywood celebrity of the era is like you say he was a man of principle and you're quite cranky I hear that a lot of people didn't get along with him but is that how he will be remembered do you think is a man of principle was incredibly philanthropic and and again his story is fascinating he has for his father was a smart the dealer a rag command in upstate New York came from nothing I'm dealt with severe anti semitism the sun changes name sort of inculcates himself into Hollywood as a sort of brash fully American leading man from that he saw the the division between high and low and he really took that film trophic spirit that's that moral spirit the moral conviction through his career what a hundred three is a long time to live but he lived a very very full life and I believe when he was getting at AFI award he had just been in a tragic helicopter accident then here he is again I'm coming to the fore because he was called his performance he was there to actually have the signs that he also had a stroke he's kind of had nine lives and his son Michael Douglas was watching all of this and he's an acting icon in his own right do you think that that what is it from Kirk Douglas that you see that Michael Douglas has it has in him I mean I've said the drive the conviction but of the the big deal is that once a problem OR one flew over the cuckoo's nest was a Kirk Douglas production he actually did the stage production he got the rights again he saw this very quirky very politically charged project his son would eventually produce the film in the Afghan Oscar glory because of that so so the the tradition certainly carries along with Michael Douglas but the I mean it's it's for for viewers who are not familiar with this film we just don't really have a Kirk Douglas anymore the system doesn't really work with that but we have certain people the Brad Pitt's of this world who are stars but also bringing in these films after their production so it's quite remarkable thank you so much Jason Jason is a film critic he joins us live in the studio to talk about the death of Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas who died yesterday at the age of a hundred

You wouldn't want anything to happen to him. Does he feel the same about you. You wouldn't want to serve out that five year sentence would you. What are you getting? Remember five years and this time you'll have to serve every day of it. You don't have to all right get down doing what do I have to do. Kirk Douglas. Who has died at the age of one hundred and three after a career that spanned seven decades? Wadi is famous for films like Spartacus. lustily many many more with being the monocle ban Rai than indeed Ben that we just listened to was from his debut. That's nineteen forty-six That was the film at the strange love of Martha Ivers and the other voice. You heard in that clip opposite Kirk. Douglas was degrade Elizabeth Scott who is really little. None today was quite a big star in her time but made most of her career Korea in the genre of film noir. Which of course is quite obviously Kirk? Douglas got his start That film and many others as well were well within the film noir genre and really came to personify so much of what he screened type was when he he did. Have this tendency in this Eddie days to play some pretty unsavory characters but also to get the audience to empathize. He's with them absolutely. That was key to that particular role there. I remember speaking to Victoria. Wilson who is the biographer of Barbara Stanwyck who is also in The that film the Martha Iras And she described that film as really being all about post war American wrought the kind of corruption that seeps into the political process. Sometimes when you've got everything that you could ever want you know what comes with victory. Basically and that came to us on a lot of the other roles that Kirk Douglas Played After that there was another film he starting also opposite Elizabeth Scott which was I walk alone. that one of his best known roles was in the nineteen fifty and a film called Ace in the hole which I would argue should be required viewing for as giants out. There It if you're talking about unsavory characters unsympathetic characters has played by Douglas. This probably should be top of the HEAP He's playing a journalist who stumbles across a situation. Where basically there is a man stuck in a hole But he sees an opportunity opportunity then he exploits the situation he basically follows the rule book of tabloid journalism. Buck does everything that you definitely shouldn't do as an ethical journalist and it's it's all about the The the the consequences that come with that or the other the other one I came to very light is probably much better known I saw powder glory about a year ago for the first time. Absolutely live I mean look Polaris Armenian. These really well-known up performances as you would expect from a an actor of Kirk. Douglas Caliber He's starting so many well known films. That have really come to a lot of them. Have come to Croft what we think about when we think about that period of filmmaking that sort of Early to mid century you. He's career started in the forties. It really ended US oppose or certainly the the golden era of ended towards the end of the nineteen sixty so his career path can be directly traced to the ascendants and then descendants of of classic Hollywood filmmaking but he also made so many other films that I think deserve to be rewarded. If you look at the list of films that he was most proud of making yes. There are the well-known ones like spot and so on but one of the films he listed was that I won the strange love of Mahthir Avas. There was also another film called the bad and the beautiful. which is if you if you like a film like Sunset Boulevard all about The the sort of the Iki side of what it what it means to be great and it's ace in the hole compulsory for every journalist Ben Thank you very much on the life of Kirk

But if they hate with the Democrats want to take the country more than his Twitter account. He's going to win no matter who they nominate. That's the fight right there. That's the whole election in a nutshell. Can you make suburban women hate how far left the Democrats want to take the country more than they disdain is Twitter account. That's it right there. I save money on consultants. That's the whole battle. So all posturing all presentation on policy all messaging should be directed at this argument. I undermine my ability to make this argument if I'm a wimp if I'm not a strong leader. Because now, I'm not offering alternative to this. In fact, I'm reinforcing the things about my personality you already don't like.

History of our country, the history of people underestimating this nation, and we doing possible things. And so we don't need a president is going to put down people or divide people. This is really one of those times in American history. I think we need a revival of civic grace and bringing people together, and that's going to be one of the major themes of my campaign. How do you? Reviving civil great sounds great. But a lot of Democrats say we are past that time in politics. This is not a let's all reason together, and that the nominee for the party needs to be the kind of person can operate in that environment. Well, clearly, again, my career has been fighting and overcoming very difficult political opposition, but we live in a country right now, we have a common pain with Republican or democrat from medical care to working fulltime jobs and still being bull. The poverty line. We have so much common pain in America. But we've lost that sense of common purpose. And so more than ever we need a leadership that's going to remind people that we have a common urgency in this country. We have to find ways of putting indivisible back in this one nation and one of the ways I do that is I questioned the hiring practices in religion. A federal judge nominees the sporting during a Senate confirmation hearing to make sure they have the state accepted religious beliefs fake news. You're not there. So he's already dropped the ball.
