Howard Bloom guests on Episode 5 of “A Conversation with Cometan.” Cometan speaks with former publicist Howard Bloom about all things outer space. From religion and spirituality, the greening of worlds beyond our own to the future of Astronism as a belief system, Episode 5 has it all.
Astronism is a cosmocentric organized philosophy whose lineage traces back to the astronomical religions practiced during the stone age.
Britain’s Channel 4 TV has called Howard Bloom “the Einstein, Darwin, Newton, and Freud of the 21st Century.” Bloom has been a Visiting Scholar at New York University and is the critically acclaimed author of seven books, including The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History (1995) and Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century (2000).
Bloom’s writings have appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, Knight-Ridder’s Financial News Service, Psychology Today’s blog site, The Scientific American’s blog site, and in: arxiv.org, the leading pre-print site in advanced theoretical physics and math; PhysicaPlus; Across Species Comparisons and Psychopathology; BioSystems; New Ideas in Psychology; The Journal of Space Philosophy; and in the books: Research in Biopolitics; The Future Information Society; and NASA’s Cosmos and Culture.
In addition, he lectured an international conference of quantum physicists in Moscow—Quantum Informatics 2006—on why everything we know about quantum physics is wrong, and the concepts Bloom introduced were later used in a book proposing a new approach to quantum physics, Constructive Physics, by Moscow University’s Yuri Ozhigov.
Bloom is the founder and chair of a group Buzz Aldrin convinced him to form in 2005, the Space Development Steering Committee, and a member of the board of governors of the National Space Society.
Bloom began in microbiology and theoretical physics at the age of ten and formulated a theory of the beginning, middle, and end of the universe that predicted Dark Energy when he was working at the world’s largest cancer research center at 16. For that theory, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdJyafSBCb0. Bloom believes that science must harvest the insights of the arts. In 1968 he co-founded Cloud Studio, which became one of the leading avant-garde commercial art studios on the East Coast. In 1971 he became editor of the monthly rock magazine Circus, and was credited by Chet Flippo, one of the founding editors of Rolling Stone, with single-handedly creating a new magazine genre, the heavy metal magazine. In 1976 he founded the Howard Bloom Organization, Ltd., which became the largest public relations firm in the record industry, with clients like Michael Jackson, Prince, Bob Marley, Bette Midler, John Mellencamp, Billy Joel, Billy Idol, Simon & Garfunkel, Queen, Kiss, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Run DMC.
