New Paradigm Science is the core domain of the Laszlo Institute.  It is dedicated to exploring integral, transdisciplinary, and what we call “holotropic” (coherence and wholeness oriented) explanatory frameworks of phenomena and events.  Explorations in New Paradigm Science invite both theoretical analyses relating to the principles and constructs of emerging epistemological considerations, as well as presentation of explorations and practical applications that foster new perspectives on ontological engagements. 


The sub-domain of Quantum Physics and Quantum Biology explores the phenomenon of entanglement and mutual cuasality in the physical and life sciences.


The change of paradigm brought about by exploration of the quantum domain has pushed the edges of the paradigm of originally framed as quantum mechanics.  The sub-domain of Field-Based Physics explores both the mounting experimental evidence for the dematerialization the world while also formulating novel theoretical frameworks that account for the observed dynamics of consonance.

Extending Quantum-like framework of decision making to group decision making, organization behaviors, or social networking.

LINPR Research Project Summary
By Dr. Sudip Patra
August 2022

1. Extending Quantum-like framework of decision making to group decision making, organization behaviors, or social networking. In this area objective would be to continue ongoing collaborations, and align them to the overall values and objectives of new paradigm research at the institute.

2. Developing on relations between complex adaptive systems and quantum-like framework, for example in complexity economics it has been observed that deep uncertainty in economy plays a fundamental role in evolution of economies, but quantum-like framework might provide a concrete language of describing such ontological uncertainty.

3. Developing frameworks or models for policy decision making based on quantum-like approaches for decision making. Here the objective would be to continue on current projects, for example with existing PhD scholars whom I am mentoring. Collaborating with the Laszlo Institute would help significantly since we would be able to team up with policy thinkers in this regard. Currently one-project deals with developing a human-AI algorithm based on quantum-like approach (with one of my PhD students).

4. Developing further on the Quantum foundations works with other Scientists, but also to develop holistic philosophical thinking that would align quantum science with complex adaptive world we are inheriting. For example, a frontier research objective in foundations is quantum and chaos. Relational quantum theory is another frontier field opening up. What such new frameworks may offer for worldviews in this age of information and complexity?
