Mario Luis Rodríguez Cobos (born January 6,
1938 in Mendoza, Argentina), pen-name
Silo, is a writer and spiritual leader. Study
groups in the late 1960s organized around his works and formed what
became the Humanist Movement.
In 2001, in the Annual Ordinary Meeting of the Assembly of
General Coordinators of the Humanist Movement, the highest level
of interchange for those involved in the organisational structure,
in Madrid, Spain, Silo announced his retirement from the affairs of the Humanist
Movement, leaving all further development in the hands of this
collegiate body that he himself had created.
Since that time, Silo has started a new project, known as Silo's Message. This project is
a spiritual development based on some of the earliest forms of
meditation exercises developed by Silo in the 60s called the work
with the force.
In September 2006, Silo launched a new campaign for global nuclear
disarmament, citing it as the biggest threat to the world
today. This TV campaign consists of a 30 second video clip. 
Critics of Silo allege that his movement is a cult.
