Think and Do… the Impossible

"The Institute for Temporal Observation and Application welcomes and invites you to participate in thinking and doing the impossible. NC State’s rich tradition of innovation is uniquely on display here at The Institute, where we pride ourselves on our spirit of exploration, togetherness, and secrecy. But don’t take our word for it, join us at our Recruitment Center and find out for yourself. For those with a spirit of scientific adventure and discovery, an amazing journey awaits."

"A personal Invitation from our Founder, Dr. Alister Beldon"


The "Learn" page has a brief description and history of The Institute. This includes their founding and current mission.

Our Mission

Here at the Institute for Temporal Observation and Application our mission is for the betterment of mankind and the advancement of world peace through the use of technology. The Institute operates under a strong sense of exploration, togetherness, and innovation, with cutting edge research happening every day.

The Institute was originally founded at NC State in 1968 by the esteemed Dr. Alister Beldon and his colleague Dr. Roger Meridian. Together, they imagined a communal research institution on campus, where free-thinking scientists could pursue research in Astrophysics, Negative Energies, Electromagnetism, Quantum Mysticism, Retrocausality, and most importantly, Transdimensional science.

Over the course of the following decades, Dr. Beldon has gathered the brightest students and greatest minds to innovate and enhance science and the world as we know it. The Institute has developed a plethora of breakthrough technologies and led the field of Transdimensional Science.

Today, The Institute remains a leader and is continuing to push its own boundaries. Having recently launched innovative new studies into many of these fields, The Institute seeks to propel further discovery, both inward and outward, that will continue to reverberate throughout all of time.


The "meet" page is the page for the Institute Staff. There are 5 people listed on this page; Alister Beldon (Theoretical Physics), Roger Meridian (Mathematics), Jack Merton (Nuclear and Industrial Engineering), Peter Albright (Biological Sciences), and Joan Faraday (American History). The only staff member with a photo, email, or biography is Alister Beldon.


Dr. Alister Beldon is a theoretical physicist, futurist, professor (emeritus), innovator, and a leader on NC State's campus since 1963. He received two B.S. degrees (Physics and Philosophy) and Ph.D. from NC State, where his doctoral thesis was the institution’s first on the topic of Negative Energies. Following his BS degree he studied briefly with the esteemed Werner Heisenberg in Munich at the Max Planck Institute for Physics, where he earned his MA and learned much about both physics and his personal philosophies. In 1968, along with two other highly regarded professors on campus, Dr. Beldon founded The Institute for Temporal Observation and Application where, together, they delved into the mysteries of theoretical and experimental physics and founded the studio transdimensional science. During this period he helped initiate many new and innovative research projects into negative energy and spacetime, as well as quantum field theories. After thirty four years of service to The Institute and nearly forty with NC State altogether, Dr. Beldon retired in 2006. He is currently an emeritus professor and remains active with The Institute.

His main research interests have been - atomic physics, quantum mechanics, time dilation, wormholes, black holes and the unified theory of quantum gravity. His broader interests include sonoluminescence, quantum mysticism, and the human mind.
