Richard Bloom

Richard Bloom

DIRECTOR OF SYMPOSIA

 

Richard Blum’s research focuses on uniting concepts from science and eastern spirituality into a single vision. His Existence Framework offers a comprehensive vision spanning from the events which led to the big bang, to the formation of time and space, to how consciousness is generated in the brain, and concludes with an explanation as to why it is possible for humans to experience the infinite transcendent reality. His multidisciplinary approach was inspired by his college advisor and Nobel Prize winner Herbert Simon while at Carnegie-Mellon University. He is a follower of the spiritual master Meher Baba, and he has made many visits to his retreat in India, as well as being active at the Meher Center in Myrtle Beach, SC where Richard resides. Now that he is retired from his software development business, he is focused on developing his cosmological framework. His books, articles and videos can be viewed on his website.
