About Sascha Dr. Sascha Vongehr [风洒沙], physicist and philosopher, studied phil/math/chem/phys in Germany, obtained a BSc in theoretical physics (electro-mag) & MSc (stringtheory) at Sussex University, UK, and researched quantum gravity (black holes/two time theory) at the University of Southern California (USC). PhD (USC, 2005) on nanotechnology experiments and statistics of nontrivial cluster size distributions.

Perhaps only contemporary philosopher who has published unique and controversial, cutting edge contributions in all the for philosophy most relevant sciences directly in the peer reviewed scientific journals, including on general relativity and on fundamental quantum theory (as relevant for ontology and epistemology and the philosophy of mind and probability), as well as nano- and information technology (becoming highly relevant to the evolutionary description of social structure).

As of 2014, over 50 scientific articles (36 SCI indexed), 3 book chapters, 26 first author, H factor above 10, in spite of consistent suppression of his most serious work due to its critical and whistle blowing character.

Some Accomplishments in Science Outreach and Pseudoscience Whistle-Blowing: - Originator of Quantum Randi Challenge, which helped to expose fraudulent science [Annals of Physics 339 (2013) pp 81-88; and: arXiv:1207.5294 (2012)].
- Exposition of the Memristor Fraud [Advanced Science Letters 17, 285-290 (2012); and: arxiv.org/abs/1205.6129 (2012)].
- Repeated construction of advanced statistical methods to remove large errors in nanotechnology [Chem. C 116, 18533-18537 (2012) and citations therein].
- Design of first touchable Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen-setup model that strongly violates the Bell-inequality (widely thought impossible), disproving 'actualization' of single futures, likely world's first interactive science outreach exhibit on quantum mechanics that does not misrepresent the involved science [arxiv.org/abs/1311.5419 (2013)]

Some More Research Accomplishments: - Prediction and subsequent discovery/construction of black holes in quantum two-time theory, first flat embedding of the BTZ black hole [arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9907077, plagiarized in Phys. Lett. B 578, 187–194 (2004)]
- Previously thought impossible attachment of alkali clusters in surface of ultracold superfluid Helium nano-droplets [Chem. Phys. Lett. 353, 89-94 (2002)]
- Originator of Einstein Expansion Paradox (EEP) (space expands globally while nowhere locally expanding). [arxiv.org/abs/0912.3069]
- Resolution of EEP via infinite Lindquist-Wheeler lattice of Einstein-Straus vacuoles proving consistency of global metric expansion with local space reproduction descriptions (Einstein-local microcausal dynamics in quantum field theory) in an inhomogeneous cosmos. [Comm Theo Phys 54 (3) 477-483 (2010)]
- Independent resolution of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox via many-worlds models that pedagogically teach how modal relativity breaks 'naive realism' [arxiv.org/abs/1108.1674 (2011)]
- Originator of Suicidal Philosophy as conclusion of the philosophy of suicide, including Global Suicide scenario due to recursive rationality (rational utility bridges is-ought divide) as endpoint to otherwise substrate independent (algorithmic) evolution, thus fundamental solution of the Fermi paradox [ Book Chapter (2013)]
- Originator of Tautological Modal Relativity (to unified Einstein-Everett-relativity) [arXiv:1301.1972 (2013)] implying 'evolved surprise' approach to probability [in print, (2014)]
