About Robert Harris

I have been an innovator and entrepreneur my whole adult life since I graduated with a PhD in physics and joined a startup a firm in La Jolla, California (SAI) over 30 years ago as an employee-owner member of the founding team. This company grew tremendously, eventually going public, and in 2013 split into two $billion+ publicly traded firms: SAIC and Leidos. I left my first and only job ever at SAI after ten years with vested stock and started up a number of firms based on innovative ideas that had been bubbling in my mind: I founded and operated three companies in the 1980s in technology, communications and education, respectively; I helped three other firms I get off the ground and go public in the 1990s in IT, engineering, and product development, respectively. All of these opportunities and more were driven by paradigm shifts large and small. Starting in 1990, I began to conduct research to understand paradigm shifts broadly and deeply through my firm Paradigm Research International, LLC. My business since then has been using ongoing PRI research findings, plus my many years of hands-on experience, to advise client organizations large and small on how these shifts are or will affect them, and how they can respond to the threats and opportunities they pose.

Why does a new born baby cry? It’s the only language it has to let the outside world know:

I am hungry, thirsty, wet, too hot or cold, scared, and lonely!”

These seven deadly survival needs will persist throughout the baby’s adult life. A new life of learning begins for the baby as it forms its personal ever-evolving view of Reality – IT’S SELF, as it constantly evolves from personal experience through many nested levels of internal and external change until it dies. What is left “alive” by the baby’s lived-life after death is the net difference between what the baby took out of the universe during its life, and what it gave back to “Wholes.” All “parts” are temporary (short half-lives) parts of any“Wholes” (longer half-lives) allowing wholes to continue being “longer-term” temporary as both Wholes and Parts dance with each other as all undergo constant change searching for ever higher Total Net Value for all.

THE UNIVERSE IS CREATIVE, LIKE ALL OF THE EMERGING LIFE FORMS IT SPAWNS, ALL INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER IN A STATE OF CONSTANT CHANGE AS THEY EXPLORE NEW POSSIBILITIES TO CREATE NEW REALITIES.
