According to Biocentrism, death is not the end of the journey, but « a » journey.
Life goes on in a parallel universe regardless of what happens to it in this one.
“Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me.” Wrote Einstein in a condolence letter upon the death of his close friend, Michele Besso, in 1955. “That signifies nothing. For those of us who believe in physics, the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”According to 'Biocentrism', life doesn't end and death is just an illusion.Click To Tweet
Einstein died merely a month after he wrote the letter and, apparently, he was right, as new scientific theories suggest that death, just like life, is but an illusion.
Quantum physics laws tells us that “life” is not made of matter but of vibrations that escape time and space.
Biocentrism, the Theory of Everything (?)
What happens when we die? Where does the human conscience come from? Does the brain perceive or create (then perceive) what we call reality? If consciousness doesn’t originate from the brain, then the presence of physical envelopes isn’t crucial for it to exist.
“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness.” Said Max Planck, Nobel Prize-winning physicist, “We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”
Biocentrism builds on that and goes on to suggest that consciousness creates the universe or reality, that time and space are mere illusions, manifestations in our minds, and that reality is determined by the observer.
Biocentrism and Relativity predict the same phenomena, but biocentrism, according to its fans, is superior because it does not need to imagine an extra dimension or new mathematics to be formulated.
Biocentrism claims that life is immortal and that it’s at the center of existence, reality, and the cosmos. By adding life and consciousness to the equation, biocentrism is believed by its adepts to be the theory of everything.
Life & Death According to Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza is a highly qualified scientist and a priori a very serious person. He’s specialized in stem cells, cloning, and regenerative medicine research. Lanza has a distinguished career with articles devoted to him in prestigious publications.
In 2014, he made the Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2015, Prospect Magazine selected him as one of the “World’s Thinkers 2015”.
In 2009, Lanza published his book “BIOCENTRISM: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe” in which he places biology above other sciences and calls for a switch from physics to biology to understand “everything”.
Dr. Lanza says that he thinks he is succeeding in the unification that Einstein would have failed to achieve, claiming that Einstein only considered reality from the physical side, without giving much thought to biology.
Lanza claims that quantum physics has proved the existence of life after death, that energy is immortal, and so is life.
For Lanza, we believe in death because we have been taught that we are dying, however, biocentrism says the universe exists only because the individual is aware of it.
Life and biology create this reality, and the universe itself does not create life. The concepts of time and space, according to Lanza, are simply tools of our imagination.
Last year, Lanza, along with astronomer Bob Berman, revisited his controversial theory in a new book, Beyond Biocentrism.
