The Mission of the Howard Bloom Institute (HBI)

The mission of the Howard Bloom Institute is to upgrade, uplift, and empower humanity. And to uplift, upgrade, and empower generations yet to come. HBI aims to accomplish this through the promotion of the work and ideas of Howard Bloom. Ideas that offer a new perceptual lens through which to see everything inside you and everything around you in whole new ways.

We are capable of more.

Despite all our nightmares, we can survive and flourish. In fact, the more we flourish, the more we do nature’s work. And the more we do the work of the cosmos.

That’s the message of the Howard Bloom Institute.

The founding of the Howard Bloom Institute is almost as interesting as the man the Institute is named after.

When Alex Watler, Ryan Begin, and Josh Leet watched the award-winning documentary The Grand Unified Theory of Howard Bloom, they were immediately struck that the message of this man’s overall life was fascinating and of urgent importance.

From building his first Boolean Algebra machine and co-designing a computer that won science fair awards at the age of twelve and working at the world’s largest cancer research center and creating a theory of the beginning, middle and end of the universe that predicted dark energy at sixteen to his stellar career as probably the most celebrated publicist in music and certainly rock and roll history, it would not be an overstatement to say that Howard Bloom is a force of nature.  Managing and generating public awareness for music giants such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Bob Marley, Aerosmith, Paul Simon, AC/DC, Queen, Run DMC,  Billy Idol and Joan Jett, just to name a few is what most of the world knows him for. Then his unexpected recasting and reinvention of himself as a theorist of everything, if the title ever belonged to anyone, after enduring and surviving one of the most devastating illnesses possible. Since retiring from being one of the most sought-after and respected publicists in music history, Howard Bloom has been devoting his life to developing the most comprehensive understanding of the cosmos possible, right down to the human soul, as he is fond of saying.

Not being able to get the film off their minds, these three men, each brilliant and fascinating in his own right, didn’t think it was an overstatement to say that Howard’s thoughts are of great importance to our time and history and our ability to make it on this planet and in space in the future without destroying ourselves and managed to get in touch with Howard Bloom to ask him if they could join the Howard Bloom Institute. Howard was so impressed with these individuals that he thought that was an outstanding idea.

There was only one problem.

There was no Howard Bloom Institute.

No multidisciplinary, bleeding-edge organization committed to understanding the truth no matter the cost.

The fortuitous meeting between this group of thinkers led to the founding of the Howard Bloom Institute…and all of the dreaming and research that will allow humanity to survive and flourish in the universe now and in the future featured in the film were made manifest in reality.

The Howard Bloom Institute now includes an impressive list of people from Jeff Bridges to Harry Hamlin to leading researchers in fields such as space technology and from locations as diverse as Vienna, London, and Spain.

The Howard Bloom Institute is a place to discover and immerse yourself in Howard Bloom’s unique understanding of humanity’s deeply meaningful place in a universe that wants to never stop learning about itself through you and me.

Welcome and enjoy your exploration.
