About Us

The Science Foundation for Public Policy was founded in 1995 with a grant from the estate of humanist philosopher J.T. Cremer (1911-1994) who was the Dutch translator at the Japanese WW II War trials, a NY Times journalist and Texas oilman; who in turn received an estate from his grandfather J. T. Cremer (1847-1923) a Dutch industrialist who served as Minister of the Colonies of the Netherlands, was President of the Dutch East India Trading Company, Ambassador to the United States; and was owner of the largest private estate in Holland: Duin-Kruidberg (Prince's Wood) the former royal hunting grounds and palace of King William III in 1682 and bought by Cremer in 1895. Located just outside of Amsterdam, the Cremer Duin en Kruidberg estate is now a 5 star hotel and national landmark.

The Dutch East India Trading Company is considered in economic history as the first modern corporation of the modern corporate era.

"Fritz", the son of J.T. Cremer and raised on the Prince's Wood estate, was an inventor and aviation pioneer. He entered business in 1912 with childhood friend T. Fokker inventor of the tri-plane flown by the Red Baron during WW I. Fritz Cremer was an investor and test pilot of the early Fokker aircraft. The lads first invented a tubeless tire for motorcars and then turned to aviation. Fritz departed for America when his father became Dutch Ambassador to the United States while Fokker eventually became renown as the famed "Flying Dutchman".

The Science Foundation for Public Policy is a private not-for-profit research and public educational corporation now managed by great-grandson J.T. Cremer, PhD (MIT '76) Physicist and Chief Scientist at Adelphi Technologies of Palo Alto and co-inventor of the neutron microscope.

The Science Foundation for Public Policy supports science and humanist public policy ideals. Funding is directed to programs in cutting edge physics and advancement of the science education of the general public.


Our current scholar fellow is Nancy Beth Orr who received a genius grant for her discovery of equidynamics.

Equidynamics is a proposed principle of motion, which physically and mathematically satisfies as one dynamic from which the four forces may be derived.

Physics of the 18th and 19th century were useful in harnessing thermodynamic dissipation that led to the engines of the Industrial Revolution while 20th century physics was useful in corralling the particulate zoo that led to the Atomic Age and electronic era. However, Orr equidynamics better explains two vast phenomena that have generally been elusive: the process of construction into complexity and the nature of the spacefield.

In addition to accounting for the dissipation of energy as is done in the Hamiltonian equations, which drove the Industrial Revolution, equidynamic equations offers insight into what the Hamiltonian cannot; which is to explain more precisely how convergence of energy leading to complexity in the universe occurs. This is especially applicable to the constructive 21st century micro technologies of the nanoscale, neuroscience and medicine where statistical exceptions to the second law of thermodynamics are observed.

Instead of just accounting for the particle zoo of the 20th century, Orr equidynamics accounts for what quantum mechanics did not attempt, which was to account for the spacefield as well; within a larger description of the disposition of the spacefield and macroscale structure formation in the universe.

Where Einstein united energy and matter, equidynamics takes physics another step forward by providing the physical paradigm which supports the equidynamic proposal of the unification of space and energy. Thus, in keeping with Occam's razor, equidynamics excludes the M theory need for the mathematical invention of extra dimensions and parallel universes. The Orr equidynamic principle of motion observes dark energy as an intrinsic property of space, describes a cosmological cycle of space and energy and predicts a likely origin and eventual fate of the universe.
