Howard Bloom

Biography:

Howard Bloom has been called "next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin, Einstein,[and] Freud," by Britain's Channel4 TV, "the next Stephen Hawking" by Gear Magazine, and "The Buckminster Fuller and Arthur C. Clarke of the new millennium" by Buckminster Fuller's archivist. Bloom is the author of The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Forces of History ("mesmerizing"-The Washington Post), Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century ("reassuring and sobering"-The New Yorker), The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism ("Impressive, stimulating, and tremendously enjoyable." James Fallows, National Correspondent, The Atlantic).

Bloom’s second book Global Brain was the subject of an Office of the Secretary of Defense symposium in 2010, with participants from the State Department, the Energy Department, DARPA, IBM, and MIT. Bloom is founder and head of the Space Development Steering Committee, a group that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell (the sixth man on the moon), and members from the National Science Foundation and NASA. He has debated one-on-one with senior officials from Egypt's Moslem Brotherhood and Gaza's Hamas on Iran's global Arab-language Alalam TV News Network. He has also dissected headline issues on Saudi Arabia's KSA2-TV and on Iran's global English language Press-TV. And he has probed the untold story of the Syrian Civil War with Nancy Kissinger.

And every single time, the world is wrong." He detailed such events as the "Tulip Boom" which crippled Holland's economy in 1637 and the "Soap and Cotton Revolution" that did the same to England's financial market in 1873. Bloom explained how his research has revealed that these meltdowns occur approximately every seventy years and form a distinct pattern, which he called a "techno cycle." This cycle sees a new technology or energy source begin to emerge, then it skyrockets and the country behind it becomes an economic superpower. Following that, the technology becomes old and the market is satiated and, soon thereafter, the economy of the country once on top of the ... More »

In Search of the Soul

Author Howard Bloom (website), returned to C2C as the main guest on Thursday night, discussing the nature of the soul, and the intersection of science and religion. The word soul has 23 definitions in the Oxford English Dictionary, Bloom reported, and he related the importance of the soul to one's passions (like in "soul music") which can be imprinted at an early age. While Bloom defined himself as an atheist or a "pantheist," he recounted an out-of-body experience he had, where his consciousness floated up to the ceiling as he was dancing in front of a group of 350 people. He conceptualized this transcendant experience as possibly connected to an unusual outflow of energy, rather than being a religious incident per se. By way of explanation, he cited the work of scientist Michael Persinger who concludes there is a neuropsychological basis for the belief in God. His experiments have shown that when a certain area of the brain is stimulated, people were induced into having rel ... More »
