HAMILTON, Canada -- The 'X' Zone Broadcast Network is pleased to announce that Howard H Bloom's"Howard the Humongous" will be aired on The 'X' Zone Channel on SimulTV and XZBN Affiliatesstarting October 2013.Howard Bloom has been called “next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin,Einstein, Freud,” by Britain’s Channel4 TV , “the next Stephen Hawking” by
Gear Magazine
, and “TheBuckminster Fuller and Arthur C. Clarke of the new millennium” by Buckminster Fuller’s archivist. Bloomis the author of 
The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Forces of History
(“mesmerizing”—
The Washington Post 
),
Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century
(“reassuring and sobering”—
The New Yorker

(“Impressive, stimulating, and tremendously enjoyable.” James Fallows, National Correspondent,
The Atlantic

The God Problem: How A Godless Cosmos Creates
(“Bloom’s argument will rock yourworld.” Barbara Ehrenreich).Bloom has been published in arxiv.org, the leading pre-print site in advanced theoretical physics and math.He was invited to tell an international conference of quantum physicists in Moscow in 2005 why everythingthey know about quantum physics is wrong. And his book 
Global Brain
was the subject of an Office of theSecretary of Defense symposium in 2010, with participants from the State Department, the EnergyDepartment, DARPA, IBM, and MIT.Bloom has founded three international scientific groups: the Group Selection Squad (1995), which foughtto gain acceptance for the concept of group selection in evolutionary biology; The InternationalPaleopsychology Project (1997), which worked to create a new multi-disciplinary synthesis betweencosmology, paleontology, evolutionary biology, and history; and The Space Development SteeringCommittee (2007), an organization that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell and members fromNASA, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Defense.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3er-a-24EIBloom explains that his focus is “mass behavior, from the mass behavior of quarks to the mass behavior of human beings.” In 1968 Bloom turned down four fellowships in psychology and neurobiology and set off on a science project in a field he knew nothing about: popular culture. He was determined to tunnel into theforces of history by entering “the belly of the beast where new myths, new mass passions, and new massmovements are made.” Bloom used simple correlational techniques plus what he calls “tuned empathy” and“saturated intuition” to help build or sustain the careers of figures like Prince, Michael Jackson, BobMarley, Bette Midler, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Billy Idol, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, John Mellencamp,Queen, Kiss, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, Run DMC, and roughly 100others. In the process, he generated $28 billion in revenues (more than the gross domestic product of Omanor Luxembourg) for companies like Sony, Disney, Pepsi Cola, Coca Cola, and Warner Brothers.Bloom also helped launch Farm Aid and Amnesty International’s American presence. He worked with theUnited Negro College Fund,the National Black United Fund, and the NAACP, and he put together the first
