RICHARD BLUM

NEW PARADIGM SCIENCE

 

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.

NEW PARADIGM BUSINESS

 

Before Steve Farrell co-founded Humanity’s Team with bestselling author Neale Donald Walsch, he co-founded and led two high-growth technology companies based in Silicon Valley in the 1990s that spanned across both the United States and Europe, were featured on the INC 500 list, and were each operating at more than $75 million in revenue.

By that time, Steve was also an officer in both the Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization and the Young President’s Organization, but he walked away from all of it when he felt a calling to instead play an active role in creating a movement that could help people across the globe connect more deeply with the Oneness of all of Life and the Divine energy of the Universe.

Steve is the Worldwide Executive Director of Humanity’s Team and a member of the Evolutionary Leadership Council. 

He lives with his wife Stephanie and his two children in Boulder, Colorado.
