Bradford Rant is the fictional founder of the Bradford Rant Institute of Cosmic Kinesis. He founded the organization in 1984, before disappearing on Easter Island in 1985.
Bradford Rant Institute Description
Graduating with honors from Herschel University’s Faculty of Applied Sciences (Astrophysics) in 1965, Bradford Rant completed a Masters in Physical Cosmology at the Messier Institute of Technology; writing his thesis on a critical analysis of Flügel’s multi-universe interpretation (MUI).
In the 1970s, Rant worked as a special assistant to Italian physicist Giacomo ‘Como’ Berenices, before returning to the United States to take a position at ----------.
It was during this period that Rant took an interest in the study of heliophysics. Though largely an environmental science, heliophysics exposed Rant to the notion of interactivity and in 1974, combined with his studies of MUI, he developed the basis of a theory what would come to be known as cosmic kinesis.
Two years and many drafts later, Rant completed his Theory of cosmic kinesis as it relates to negative curvature. Despite being comprehensively referenced, and containing an introduction from the eminent MUI advocate, Kennard de Fleur-Rimny, Rant had little success in gaining support among colleagues for his work and he failed to secure peer reviews for the paper.
Suspecting larger forces were responsible for his ostracism from the astrophysics community and sacked without warning from his position at -------------, Rant decided to set up his own organization in order to further his research. In 1984, the Bradford Rant Institute of Cosmic Kinesis was founded.
A year later, Rant disappeared while on a scientific expedition to Easter Island. He was never seen again.
