Nassim Haramein, Director of Research

Nassim Haramein has spent 30+ years developing Holofractographic Unified Physics (HUP); an advanced and comprehensive approach to unification theory with increasingly emergent multidisciplinary implications. Haramein’s largest contribution thus far includes an amendment to Einstein’s field equations, the Haramein-Rauscher metric, which formulates the origin of spin as a fundamental torque and Coriolis effects in the structure of spacetime itself due to a gradient in the vacuum density. From the application of this approach, he published a seminal body of work where in his paper, The Schwarzschild Proton nucleons are defined as mini-black-hole structures in which the strong interaction is accounted for by a gravitational potential. Subsequently utilizing the holographic principle Haramein found a solution to the Hadronic mass and a quantized solution to gravitation, which led to a new approach to quantum gravity and unification, in his most recent paper Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass.

Haramein has presented on Holofractographic Unified Physics at numerous scientific organizations such as the American Physical Society Department of Mathematics, Liege University, Belgium; Department of Physics, Georgia Tech University; The Unified Theories Conference in Budapest, Hungary, and several others. Haramein’s paper The Schwarzschild Proton, was the recipient of a Best Paper award in “physics, quantum mechanics, relativity, field theory, and gravitation” during the CASYS’09 (Computing Anticipatory Systems) conference at the University of Liege, Belgium. Haramein founded UniPhi Consortium; a multi-disciplinary international physics conference of world leaders in fields varying from advanced physics and mathematics to Biology.

William Brown, MS

William Brown is a molecular biologist who has performed research in numerous laboratories across the United States including but not limited to: the Microbial Genetics and Genomics center at Northern Arizona University – primarily developing molecular identification techniques for microorganisms used in biowarfare; the New York University Medical Center – developing a new technique to study RNA-protein interaction of the transcriptome to better understand the etiology of certain genetic diseases; the Institute for Bioregenesis at Hawai’i in Manoa – performing research on stem cell regeneration therapies, epigenetic reprogramming, and neuronal plasticity.

While William is formally trained as a molecular biologist, containing several degrees in cellular and molecular biology, one of his passions has always been the study of astronomy and physics. After ten years of intensive study in molecular biology at the Universities and quantum physics on his own accord, William has begun to explore theories about possible quantum mechanical mechanisms at play in the biomacromolecular networks of the living biological system. Electromagnetic, resonance, and field interactions may be primary to the functionality of biomolecules, and the model expounded by physicist Nassim Haramein is key to understanding how field interactions are coupled with the biological communication network.

Research interests: Cellular and molecular biology, molecular genetics, regulatory networks, epigenetics, morphogenesis, cytoarchitectonics and neurobiology, biogenesis, quantum biology, unified physics, quantum geometrodynamics.

Bernardo Jose A Gomez, PhD

Bernardo Jose A Gomez is a professor of Physics at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario (UNR) and also has a permanent position as CONICET researcher at the Institute of Physics of Rosario (CONICET-UNR).

He received his Ph.D. in Physics at the UNR in 2002. His research interests are centered around the physics of plasmas and, particularly, in the interaction between plasmas and several surface samples, like steels and alloy compounds. A plasma can be seen as a cloud of atoms and subatomic particles that presents a distinctive collective behavior. Hence, a plasma is more like a gas that any of the other matter states but behaves in a different way. So, the main goal of these investigations is the study of the variations of the superficial properties of the sample surface that can occur due to the interaction with the plasma.

Bernardo Gomez is also interested in the characterization of the plasmas themselves, analyzing the main components of the medium by using advanced spectroscopy techniques. His particular interest in the universe and the concept of existence are the main axis of his curiosity.

Research interests: Plasma Physics, Optical Spectroscopy
