About Norman Harris
Dr. Norman Harris is an accomplished physicist and mathematician who has spent most of his professional life working with some of the top minds in the world. He has accomplished pioneering research in the classified world of secret technologies and has been recognized as a leader in his field. His co-workers in his professional life have included Nobel Prize winners, medal winners, and world-recognized experts.
Dr. Harris has been involved in joint research with such noted scientists as Nobel Laureates Dr. Hans Bethe (research topic was classified) and Dr. Richard Bellman (research topic: fuzzy set membership in environmental importance functions) and pioneering physicists such as Dr. Robley Evans, author of "The Atomic Nucleus" (research topics: high energy particle scattering and Moments Method simulation of external dose due to particle-tissue interactions) and K.Z. Morgan head of the International Commission on Radiation Protection (research topic: Internal Radiation Effects in Human Lung Tissue). Dr. Harris was director of technical studies for projects involving information-theoretic models with Constance Franklin, sister of Norbert Weiner, pioneer in Cybernetics and co-worker with Albert Einstein (research topic: Transfer Model Simulations of Emergent Characteristics in a hyperspace) and Nobel Laureate, Vasily Leontief (research topic: Input-Output Econometric Analysis with Environmental Externalities). Dr. Harris also worked with Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman on an advanced model of the nucleus for use with high energy particle interactions. Dr. Harris also worked closely with Dr. Hans Mark, former director of Ames Aeronautical Research Laboratories and formerly Secretary of the Air Force. Dr. Mark is presently part of the technical arm of the George W. Bush presidency.
Dr. Harris' technical specialties include; expertise in mind/brain computational models, information theory, cognitive systems, neural harmonic theory, artificial intelligence, space flight dynamics, flight dynamics, space radiation effects, fuzzy logic, computer science, systems analysis, probabilistic analysis, nuclear models of cosmic ray interaction, radiation effects, plasma dynamics, geometrical optics, astrophysics, wave propagation models, multi-agent game analysis, diffraction theory and propagation of electromagnetic radiation in lossy dielectrics.
Dr. Harris also has expertise in environmental sciences, atmospheric sciences, environmental impact analysis, ground water dispersion, remote imagery, marine turbulence and dispersion and economic input-output analysis.
Dr. Harris has been an invited speaker on radio and television and press conferences aimed at informing the public of his scientific research into radiation effects and nuclear weapon technology. Dr. Harris has testified before Congress and has served as a technical consultant in the development of new legislation. Dr. Harris has been an advisor to the Secretary of The Air Force and a consultant to the liaison between Congress and the Air Force.
Dr. Harris was appointed to the prestigious Delphi Committee in order to set long term strategic and scientific requirements for the United States of America, reporting directly to the President of the United States. Dr. Harris has been an advisor to Congress and has reviewed and recommended legislative actions relative to EPRI and technical aspects of a revised environmental protection act.
Dr. Harris has been an invited lecturer for the United States Office of Technology Assessment. Dr. Harris on one occasion spoke for eight straight hours on the subject of fuzzy set applications to remote sensing. He spoke in front of the full 200 man staff of the Office of Technology Assessment because fuzzy analysis was a cutting edge tool for scientists at that time. The Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) was established by Congress in 1972 to provide congressional committees with analyses of emerging, difficult, and often highly technical issues. OTA staff represented every major field of science and technology, ranging from board-certified internists to Ph.D. physicists.
Dr. Harris has taken part in medical research at the University of California Los Angeles and developed significant models of the lung and its retention of various particle sizes in the alveoli. These new discoveries affected the dose level of particles retained, which contain radiation. This information was also used to determine nicotine retention as a function of particle size within the lungs.
Dr. Harris took part in the development of the first safe car for the department of transportation and contributed significantly to the modeling of car dynamics for use in designing automobiles.
Dr. Harris has also been an advisor to two presidents in secret technical areas relating to the strategic defense of the United States.
Dr. Harris has become a director of the Pacific Center for Advanced Studies in 1993. The center is composed of five advanced institutes, which encompass major segments of our scientific research. These include:
The Center is dedicated to helping improve our understanding of the world while enriching our lives through research.
This research has resulted in hundreds of original papers and a range of other publications aimed at both experts in the various fields and the general public, interested in the results of cutting edge research.
This Institute carries on both theoretical and computer laboratory research, aimed at a better understanding of how Cognition and Mentation are supported by the biological structures of the brain. Scientific studies concerned with computationalism, synaptic neurochemical kinetics, isocortex computational and dynamic structures, informational transduction by neurochemicals, circuital dynamics, cytoarchitectural dynamics, convergence zone operational characteristics, relativism in information processing, RF/CF interactions, sequencing structures, PHI-effects in consciousness, hypothesis testing in the subconscious, synthetic Will and executory functions, synthetic consciousness and the role of neurochemicals in the production of analogical constructions within the brain. Ongoing studies also include the development of synthetic awareness and the analysis and theoretical structure of aware systems, including self-awareness.
Over the period of his extensive career, Dr. Harris has pioneered in both publicly distributed subjects and secret, classified subjects. An asterisk was placed by those subjects that are of a secret nature:
