R?ssler was born in Berlin. At the age of 17, he became an amateur radio operator (DR 9KF). After considering becoming a monk, R?ssler chose to major in medicine, with a speciality in immunology, for ethical reasons.
He was awarded his MD in 1966. R?ssler then began his post doc at the Max Planck Institute for Behavioral Psychology, in Bavaria. In 1969, he started a visiting appointment at the Center for Theoretical Biology at SUNY-Buffalo. Later that year, he became Professor for Theoretical Biochemistry at the University of T?bingen. In 1976, he became a tenured University Docent. In 1994, he became Professor of Chemistry by decree.
R?ssler has held visiting positions at the University of Guelph (Mathematics) in Canada, the Center for Nonlinear Studies of the University of California at Los Alamos, the University of Virginia (Chemical Engineering), the Technical University of Denmark (Theoretical Physics), and the Santa Fe Institute (Complexity Research) in New Mexico.
In June 2008 R?ssler emerged in the public eye with an open letter as one of the strongest critics of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) proton collision experiment supervised by the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, trying to raise awareness of the possibility of creating human-made uncontrollable mini black holes with assumed exponential growth which might get trapped in Earth's gravity due to their slowness of movement compared to the natural phenomenon of proton collisions with cosmic rays.
He based his warnings on a known but hardly noticed proposition made by Max Abraham in 1912 surrounding Albert Einstein's theory of relativity as well as his own, yet theoretically dispute, gothic - ℜ theorem and its implications. He also questioned the existence of the Hawking radiation which in theory should lead to the decay of micro black holes. A majority of experts in these fields dismissed his claims as substantial misconceptions of the general theory of relativity, as well as being inconsistent and disproved through measurement experiments.
Apart from the refutation of his theory, which he challenged others to debate, his public step up and call for an LHC Safety Conference started a discussion about the ethical limits of modern experimental physics in mainstream media all across Europe.
R?ssler has authored around 300 scientific papers in fields as wide-ranging as biogenesis, the origin of language, differentiable automata, chaotic attractors, endophysics, micro relativity, artificial universes, the hypertext encyclopedia, and world-changing technology. - Wikipedia
