Klee Irwin is an author, physicist and entrepreneur, who dedicates the majority of his time to Quantum Gravity Research (QGR), a research institute he founded in 2009. The mission of the organization is to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, matter, energy, information and consciousness.

As the Director of QGR, Klee manages a dedicated team of mathematicians and physicists developing emergence theory. Since 2009, the team has published numerous papers and journal articles laying out some of the mathematical building blocks and axiomatic ideas for this unification model.

Klee is also the founder and owner of Irwin Naturals, an award-winning global natural supplement company providing alternative health and healing products sold in thousands of retailers ranging from Walmart to Whole Foods. Irwin Naturals is a long-time supporter of Vitamin Angels, which aims to provide lifesaving vitamins to mothers and children at risk of malnutrition thereby reducing preventable illness, blindness, and death and creating healthier communities.

In 2018 Klee published a book on CBD called Pain Nation, which educates on the science, socio-polical background and uses of CBD.

Outside of his work in physics and nutraceuticals, Klee is active in supporting students, scientists, educators and founders in their aim to discover solutions leading to high impact positive change in the world. He has supported and invested in a wide range of people, causes and companies including Change.orgUpworthyDonors ChooseMoon ExpressMayasil, the X PRIZE Foundation, and Singularity University, where he is an Associate Founder.

Full bio…


Quantum Gravity Research (QGR) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, matter, energy, information and consciousness.

Klee’s research has principally focused on the organization of dense aggregates of tetrahedra in three- and four-dimensional space. Emergence Theory’s framework is described in the short film “What Is Reality?”.

Pain Nation

The US is an anxious and depressed nation on the brink, divided by a broken political system and a president who is pushing people over the edge. At only 5% of the world's population, we consume over 75% of the world’s prescription opioids, antidepressants, and amphetamines—legally or on the street, resulting in an opioid crisis. We’re stressed, both mentally and physically. CBD (cannabidiol), perhaps the most profound plant medicine ever discovered, may be the answer to this pervasive sickness.

This new book by Klee discusses how this miracle molecule of the cannabis/hemp plant helps with countless medical conditions—everything from chronic pain and epilepsy to cancer, anxiety, and depression (and no, it can’t get you high).

What is Reality?

The very fundamental nature of our physical reality is still a mystery. Scientists around the world are still trying to discover a unification theory to explain why the two most currently accepted physics theories - general relativity and quantum mechanics - cannot reconcile one another.

Quantum Gravity Research is one of the teams on a mission to provide answers. The Los Angeles based team of physicists and mathematicians are developing a new, first-principles unified “theory of everything” called emergence theory, which attempts to unify the current theories with a creative new approach.
