CiDR researchers are involved with many collaborative projects around the world. If you are interested in getting involved with any of these projects or are working on a related project of your own, please send an email to:

The Anomaly Project

The TMCi prototype Time Machine control interface
during a calibration test, 2011. 
After the discovery of temporal interference and degradation caused by fractal anomalies during the TMCi-0.43p field tests, a team of CiDR researchers focused their studies on this phenomenon. 

This is one of the most important areas of our research, as no one knows for sure what the physical effects of temporal interference are or how it will affect our dimensional timeline.

The project is lead by adjunct researcher Justyn Myers, and brings together all of the branches of our organization. 

The CiDR Engineering Core is also developing new technology specifically for this project.

Temporal Radiation Safety Initiative

Temporal Radiation is a type of non-ionizing radiation, similar to microwaves, that has properties of both waves and particles. This type of radiation also appears to exist simultaneously at different points in the multidimensional timeline. Its effects are not well understood.

The CiDR Administrative Team is working with a group of scientists and engineers to study the effects of temporal radiation and create a set of standards and safety practices. 

Scientists have observed small amounts of naturally occurring temporal radiation that are most likely harmless. However, devices that utilize a temporal rift and generate higher amounts of radiation may pose a greater risk 

So far, the team has created a measurement system, warning symbol, a set of safety protocols and is currently developing a wearable temporal radiation detector, that will become a standard issued device for anyone working with equipment that utilizes a temporal rift.

Current safety protocols are based around minimizing the amount of radiation generated by temporal rift devices and minimizing exposure as much as possible.

Horologium Synthesis Project

The goal of this successful CiDR project, lead by mineralogist and materials engineer Dr. Heinrich Ruland, was to create a scalable synthetic material that has the same properties as the so called Horologium crystal used in the original WWII-era temporal device.

Horologium is a spherical, semi-transperent crystal with unique molecular properties. When charged with specific amounts of plasma energy, Horologium is capable of generating a rift in space-time within a partial vacuum. 

The original Horologium crystal may actually be a synthetic material, as little is known about where it came from. Any records of its origins have since been lost.

There are no existing records of naturally occurring Horologium crystal in scientific literature either, and there is only one reference to it in a single declassified document related to Project Time Machine. This has lead some researchers to speculate that the crystal is of extraterrestrial origin.

In 2010, Ruland used a series of rare minerals and techniques similar to those used in creating synthetic diamonds to create a material with an almost identical molecular structure to that of the original Horologium crystal. CiDR engineers have since been able to generate temporal rifts with synthetic crystal that has a purity of %89 or higher.

This new synthetic material can also be scaled and used to generate temporal rifts of proportional size. 

The creation of synthetic Horologium crystal has opened the door for the development of a new generation of smaller and safer temporal research devices.

Déjà Vu Catalog Project

Since 2006, Dr. Allison Weathersky, a Toronto based biophysicist,  has been investigating a possible link between the déjà vu, jamais vu and déjà entendu phenomena and multidimensional temporal dynamics. 

Weathersky theorized that these poorly understood phenomena are actually reflections of different potential histories and futures, under the "many-worlds" interpenetration of quantum mechanics, that occur within our own personal timelines. 

Weathersky has published several papers on her findings, and continues to collect data on the subject.
