Human Design and Gene Keys are very similar. So what is the difference of Human Design vs Gene Keys? Human Design was created by Ra Uru Hu and Gene Keys was developed by Richard Rudd. Richard Rudd studied under Ra Uru Hu and asked Ra if he could develop his own system using the basis of Human Design which turned into Gene Keys. Richard Rudd has written many books, but Gene Keys is by far the most amazing book. It is a Human Design Bible, so to speak. It is Human Design that evolved the next level. He took the Human Design system and evolved it into his own system similar to what I did with the HD Astro chart.
