Summary: In this outline of a program, based on rigorous renormalization group theory, we introduce new definitions which allow one to formulate precise mathematical conjectures related to conformal invariance as studied by physicists in the area known as higher-dimensional conformal bootstrap which has developed at a breathtaking pace over the last few years. We also explore a second theme, intimately tied to conformal invariance for random distributions, which can be construed as a search for very general first and second-quantized Kolmogorov-Chentsov Theorems. First-quantized refers to regularity of sample paths. Second-quantized refers to regularity of generalized functionals or Hida distributions and relates to the operator product expansion. We formulate this program in both the Archimedean and \(p\)-adic situations. Indeed, the study of conformal field theory and its connections with probability provides a golden opportunity where \(p\)-adic analysis can lead the way towards a better understanding of open problems in the Archimedean setting. Finally, we present a summary of progress made on a \(p\)-adic hierarchical model and point out possible connections to number theory. Parts of this article were presented in author's talk at the 6th International Conference on \(p\)-adicMathematical Physics and its Applications, Mexico 2017.
