PRIMUS
Center of Foundational Physics and Complex Systems
A component of the TETRAD Institute of Complex System Dynamics


PRIMUS Center of Foundational Physics and Complex Systems is a component of the TETRAD Institute and is constituted by research focused upon Fundamental Sciences of Geometry, Mathematics, Physics, and their relations and implications in Informatics and Biology.

The focal topics of research are questions of information, form, structure, order, complexity, emergence, interconnectedness, interdependence, singularity, stability and permanence within the basic sciences. Topics of investigation range from fundamental theoretical issues in quantum and relativistic physics, cosmology, particle and condensed matter physics, topology, set theory, number theory, control theory, cybernetics, theoretical biology, genetics, epigenetics, and neuroscience.

Comprising TETRAD Institute is a faculty comprised of Fellows, Mentors, Researchers and Visitors. There are organizational affiliations with multiple universities and other institutions but the Institute and PRIMUS Center are independent from any other external institution. (The mission and activities are consistent and similar to some of the original motivations and founding ideas of the Institute for Advanced Study, Perimeter, Kavli, and several others worldwide.)

There are three primary ongoing TETRAD Institute Programs in which the PRIMUS Center is the main program lead, each being an engagement in long-term collaborative research and development. These are:

(Primary Programs)

  • 1. Reflexive Topological Dynamics (RTD) – theoretical investigations, encompassing quantum relativity, quantum gravity, spacetime emergence, particle emergence and cosmological topics.
    • Incorporated within the RTD Program are the Teranod and Cygnus Projects. Teranod - basic theoretical and applied research and development in the areas of controlled and low-temperature nuclear fusion. Cygnus - investigations into energy extraction and generation involving controlled photon emissions (topological condensation) and other theoretical prospects involving so-called dark energy and dark matter. Both of these projects also extensive involve the research conducted within the NeoPlexus (GCM) Program.
  • 2. Topological Biomolecular Dynamics (TBD) – theoretical and applied research, directed toward understanding models by which biological processes are governed by topological interactions at the level particularly of cellular and cell-virus interactions. This is an extension of basic principles and observations which are linked and grounded within RTD at the more basic levels of particle and atomic and molecular physics. Within the TBD Program is the ICMC Project - Immuno Cyto Molecular Computation/Communication, of which recent work focused upon new types of antiviral medicine development includes VESID (Viral Entry Structural Integrity Disruption).
  • 3. NeoPlexus (GHCM) – theoretical and applied research, directed toward the technical implementation of a Generalized Heterogeneous Computing Machine (GHCM). The GHCM incorporates a non-Turing architecture (topological information resonance) of quantum-effect computing and communication, operating in a parallel systems framework with conventional and qubit-based Turing machine processors.

(Additional Related Program Activity)

  • Seldon – a TETRAD Institute project, the PRIMUS focus being upon the theoretical and computational elements including complex systems, non-linear dynamics and the use of quantum information and computation technology models.
  • TETRAD Seminars (Coadunatio Program) - focused scientific workshops bringing together colleagues and associates working in these and related research areas, with an educational component addressing broader academic and popular audiences.

Food for Thought:
"If [all physicists] follow the same current fashion in expressing and thinking about ... field theory ... [the accuracy of] hypotheses being generated is limited ... possibly the chance is high that the truth lies in the fashionable direction. But on the off chance that it is in another direction - a direction obvious from an unfashionable view of field theory - who will find it? Only someone who sacrifices himself from a peculiar and unusual point of view one may have to invent for himself." - Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize lecture
