Everything You Know About Nature Is Wrong
The Case of the Blooming Cosmos with Howard Bloom
Howard Bloom will be speaking for The Stoa “Sensemaker In Residence” series on March 8th, and 15th at 6:00 PM ET.
The Topic of discussion will be “Everything You know About Nature Is Wrong: The Case of the Blooming Cosmos.”

The Genius of the Beast — how the western system has doubled the human lifespan, upped the lowest wage to what seven of the lowest wage earners made in 1850, has increased the average IQ by 35 points, and has upped the peace in the world by a factor of ten. And the obligation this leaves to you and me.
Gear Magazine says Bloom “may just be the next Stephen Hawking.” He has been a Visiting Scholar at New York University, a core faculty member at the Graduate Institute, and is the critically acclaimed author of seven books, including The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of…
