Actor Terrence Howard revealed his apparent breakthrough in the world of physics at a press conference in Uganda.
In a presentation meant to woo investors, the star of the TV series Empire claimed he invented a “new hydrogen technology" to help defend the sovereignty of the landlocked, equatorial central African country. Uganda borders massive Lake Victoria's northern shore.
On July 13, Howard told an audience which included Ugandan dignitaries:
“I was able to identify the grand unified field equation they’ve been looking for, and put it into geometry."
\u201cVIDEO: I want to develop a New Hydrogen technology in Uganda. The main purpose of the project would be to defend the sovereignty of the country as far as technology is concerned - @terrencehoward \n\n#UBCUpdates\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
"We’re talking about unlimited bonding, unlimited predictable structures, supersymmetry."
He also shared the new hydrogen tech would be compatible with The Lynchpin.
The Lynchpin is Howard's proprietary drone technology.
Howard added regarding his drones:
“The Lynchpins are now able to behave as a swarm, as a colony, that can defend a nation, that can harvest food, that can remove plastics from the ocean, that can give the children of Uganda and the people of Uganda an opportunity to spread this and sell these products throughout the world."
People who short-circuited trying to comprehend his speech had some thoughts.

\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward I know Texas has a vast amount of landmass, wouldn't it be nice if he had a pilot project there before coming over to Uganda?\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward I trust nothing & suspect everything untill all is clear. There are a lot of underground entities w/ selfish motives. As a sci enthusiast I'll continue placing my mind on the rail to grasp a sense of the incoming train of Hydrogen defense technology, it's doable although scary\ud83d\udc47\ud83c\udffe\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@agabacollins @ubctvuganda @terrencehoward @wbsulz Eh. Howard is discussing such unconventional science. Sounds like a movie script! \n\nThe current and conventional scientific principles that I know seem to be different. But in science, evidence is a baseline for new theories. Who tested his anyways? Or, we are a testing ground?\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward I too like to photosynthesize my hypothesis so I can utilize the grand flux capacitor of the quantum generators. That's the only way to calculate the coefficient of the hydrocarbon strand so we can then create new energy at a far superior efficiency than anything before it.\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward Okay, whatever that chemistry or geometry means & if it makes economic sense; good that there's already funding for the project, let the same funding privately secure land in Uganda on lease and government only gives paper approval & environment impact assessment. No free land.\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward This is a very brilliant idea, the unfortunate bit is, a percentage of the capital will be required to be deposited before the project can be sanctioned for investment here (Uganda) & kick starting, unfortunately.\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward I like technical things, but mehn, I am scratching my head as to what he's talking about .\n\nDid he say hydrogen bomb ?\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@ubctvuganda @terrencehoward Lights, Camera, Action... \ud83c\udfac Ugandan gold off to Langley!\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
\u201c@Mosesosamai @ubctvuganda @terrencehoward I hear replace helicopter! Drone! \nHelicopters are still here to stay. Drone is still gaining ground and I'm quite sure it is yet to stay.\n\nAnyway, chemical engineering can make miracles but let me not say it's too ambitious to be realized coz I may be a -ve energy!\u201d— UBC UGANDA (@UBC UGANDA) 1657723168
Howard briefly retired from acting after finishing the final season of Empire; however, it was announced in February 2021 he would star in the British sci-fi/thriller film Beneath.
But during his acting hiatus, it seems Howard endeavored to explore reinventing physics after years of being in an industry in which he was "tired of pretending."
According to Vice, Howard confused a red carpet interviewer at the 2019 Emmy's after claiming he has “made some discoveries in my own personal life with the science that, y’know, Pythagoras was searching for."
"I was able to open up the flower of life properly and find the real wave conjugations we’ve been looking for 10,000 years.”
Howard broke it down further, stating:
“All energy in the universe is expressed in motion, all motion is expressed in waves, all waves are curves, so where does the straight lines come from to make the Platonic solids?"
"There are no straight lines. So when I took the flower of life and opened it properly, I found whole new wave conjugations that expose the in-between spaces. It’s the thing that holds us all together.”
He also claimed in a Rolling Stone interview that "1 x 1 = 2" then shared his "proof" on Twitter.
\u201cThis is the proof to the World of Science and Mathematics that 1x1=2.\n\n#mathematics #worldofscience \n@rollingstone #proof\u201d— Terrence D Howard (@Terrence D Howard) 1509552045
Howard has claimed he "went to school for chemical engineering and applied materials" but did not complete his engineering degree.
He says he still thinks of himself as an engineer and intends to return to complete the "three credits" he claims are all he needs. No part of Howard's account of his educational history has ever been confirmed however.
Howard said he attended Pratt Institute, but the school closed its engineering degree program in 1993. In 2013, Howard said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! he earned a PhD in chemical engineering from South Carolina State University (SCSU). However Howard never attended the school and SCSU does not confer doctorates in chemical engineering.
Howard was awarded an honorary degree of "Doctorate of Humane Letters" (DHL) from SCSU for speaking at its commencement ceremony in 2012.
Howard has never elaborated on “how he identified the grand unified field equation” or any of his other claims nor demonstrated his breakthrough discoveries.
