Nassim Haramein is a physics crank, one of the many who claim to have uncovered the holy grail of physics, the "Unified Field Theory". Despite his claims, he's virtually unknown to mainstream physics, and the only people who take him seriously are the kind of people who listen to Coast to Coast AM - other wannabe physicists, conspiracy theorists, UFO nuts, Nibiru believers, New Ageish "truthseekers", alternative energy proponents, etc., etc. For a taste of his claims, assorted clips from his talks can be found on YouTube.
He is the founder of The Resonance Project, a website and foundation concerned with his Unified Physics, and the "Hawaii Institute for Unified Physics", another website created to lend credence to his charlatanry. Despite this, his article keeps getting deleted from Wikipedia on notability grounds.
Haramein was featured prominently in the conspiracy theory movie Thrive, where he discusses the fundamental shape of the fabric of space, as well as potential extraterrestrial involvement with Earth throughout history.
 The Black Whole
He is featured in the self-directed Gaiam film The Black Whole, a 2011 documentary-type movie starring Haramein and his "vacuum is the key to everything" nonsense theory. In the movie, he addresses the little he understands of quantum mechanics, the phi ratio, tetrahedrons, symmetries in the structure of the vacuum, and, of course, black holes, which, according to Haramein, are everywhere and everything; we are constantly appearing and disappearing at the speed of light, so, half of the time, we are vacuum, made of "blocks" of 64 tetrahedrons, arranged in such a way that a mini-black hole is created right at the centre of each block, thus proving that we all have four sides.
 The Schwarzschild proton
Haramein proposed "the Schwarzschild proton" - a theoretical model of the proton where two black holes "orbit" one another. It may sound impressive, but it's entirely inconsistent with experimental observation. Anyone with even a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics knows that classical "orbits" do not apply at the scales mentioned in his paper. The paper has now been hidden from public view after being debunked as pseudoscience by internet blogs equally as reputable as Haramein.
Now that his Schwarzschild Proton paper has been debunked and is only available to paying members who have fallen for his scam, he claims on his website to have published a new paper, "Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass" in the Physical Review and Research International Journal, at ScienceDomain International. This is in fact not a real journal but a website where anyone can pay a fee and have their "research" "peer-reviewed" (by no one in fact) and then "published" onto the fraudulent website.
