Every now and then, a simple yet radical idea shakes the very foundations of knowledge.
The startling discovery that the world was not flat challenged and ultimately changed the way people perceived themselves and their relationships with the world. The whole of Western natural philosophy is undergoing a sea change again, forced upon us by the experimental findings of quantum theory. Biocentrism kanza this shift in worldview, turning the planet upside down again with biocenhrismo revolutionary view that life creates the universe instead of the other way around.
In this new paradigm, life is not just an accidental byproduct of the laws of physics. Biocentrism takes the reader on a seemingly lanxa but ultimately inescapable journey through a foreign universe—our own—from the viewpoints of an acclaimed biologist and a leading astronomer. Switching perspective from physics to biology unlocks the cages in which Western science has unwittingly managed to confine itself.
At the same time, it releases us from the dull worldview that life is merely the activity of an admixture of carbon and a few other elements; it suggests the exhilarating possibility that life is fundamentally immortal.
Biocentrism awakens in readers a new sense of possibility and is full of so many shocking new perspectives that the reader will never see reality the same way again.
Any short statement does not do justice to such a scholarly work. Almost every society of mankind has explained the mystery of our surroundings and being by invoking a god or group of gods. Scientists work to acquire objective answers from the infinity of space or the inner machinery of the atom. Lanza proposes a biocentrist theory which ascribes the answer to the observer rather than the observed.
The work is a scholarly consideration of science and philosophy that brings biology into the central role in unifying the whole. The book will appeal to an audience of many different disciplines because it is a new way of looking at the old problem of our existence. Most importantly, it makes you think. The idea that consciousness creates reality has quantum support … and also coheres with some of the things biology and neuroscience are telling us about the structures of our being.
This new theory is certain to revolutionize our concepts of the laws of nature for centuries to come. Having interviewed some of the most brilliant minds in the scientific world, I found Dr. His theory of biocentrism is consistent with the most ancient traditions of the world which say that consciousness conceives, governs, and becomes a physical world. It is the ground of our Being in which both subjective and objective reality come into existence. Instead of placing life as an accidental byproduct, the authors place life at the apex of universal existence and purpose.
It is a very thrilling and disturbing read. His style is conversational and his sense of wonder is as infectious as it is delightful. Bob Lanza is to be congratulated for a fresh and highly erudite look at the question of how perception and consciousness shape reality and common experience. His monograph combines a deep understanding and broad insight into 20 th century physics and modern biological science; in so doing, he forces a reappraisal of this hoary epistemological dilemma.
Not all will agree with the proposition he advances, but most will find his writing eminently readable and his arguments both convincing and challenging. Time and space do depend on perception. We can go about our daily lives and continue to study the physical Universe as if it exists as an objective reality because the probabilities allow that degree of confidencebut we do so with a better awareness of an underlying biological component, thanks to Dr.
But his book Biocentrism is generating controversy on a different plane by arguing that our consciousness plays a central role in creating the cosmos. Then why does Robert have to say it at all? It is because we, the physicists, do not say it—or if we do say it, we only whisper it, and in private—furiously blushing as we mouth the words.
True, yes; politically correct, hell no! Robert Lanza, who is probably best known for his groundbreaking work with stem cells. The book is an out-and-out challenge to modern physics. Now, mind you, my motivation was not all that pure. It was my intention to read the book so I could more effectively refute it like a dedicated physicist was expected to.
I consider myself to be firmly and exclusively entrenched in the cosmology camp embodied by the likes of Stephen Hawking, Lisa Randall, Brain Greene, and Edward Witten. After all, you know what Julius Caesar said: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. It became necessary to penetrate the biocentrism camp.
The book had the completely opposite effect on me. The views that Dr. Lanza presented in this book changed my thinking in ways from which there could never be retreat. Before I had actually finished reading the book, it was abundantly obvious to me that Dr. Everything I had learned and everything I thought I knew just exploded in my mind and, as possibilities first erupted and then settled down, a completely new understanding emerged.
It is an elementary conclusion from quantum mechanics. So what Lanza says in this book is not new.
It is because we, the physicists, do NOT say it—or if we do say it, we only whisper it, and in private—furiously blushing as we mouth the words. Bless Robert Lanza for creating this book, and bless Bob Berman for not dissuading friend Robert from going ahead with it. You should enjoy this book, and it should help you on your personal journey to understanding.
Chatting with JoeRogan about the mysteries of consciousness and the nature of reality… pic. I read for inspiration and for a much-needed infusion of wonder, in an effort to counterbalance the jaundiced view of life I have just reinforced by scanning the New York Times.
Probably the most remarkable thing for me about this book is that it sounds so much like Nyogen Roshi, the Zen teacher I have been listening to for some 13 years now. If I had to reduce this book to one statement it would be: My perceptions are reality.
Robert Lanza – BIOCENTRISM
They are the only reality I can ever know because the universe is literally in my head; it was born when I was born, it will die when I die. From the common point of view, this is outrageously biocentgismo. From the standpoint of neuroanatomy, however, it is indisputable: Everything we perceive is processed within different parts of the brain. The main author, Robert Lanza, works in the field rboert stem-cell research, but he takes on the same basic issues that have preoccupied the great theoretical physicists of our time.
Robert Lanza – Wikipedia
He approaches the subject from a fundamentally different angle — that of consciousness — and does it in a way that is accessible and lanxa to people untrained in science. This insight, no matter how conceptual or superficial, can also serve as the starting point for personal responsibility. If I can be aware that my universe is the only one there is, then maybe I can treat it with more care.
And that could potentially make your universe a little better.
It is astounding — hiocentrismo to mention humbling — that I appear to lajza doomed to forget this fact almost every moment of my waking life. Fortunately, I do have the ability to remind myself, and to the degree that I am able to do that which increases with my own sense of urgency to do soI get to experience life in a more open, sane and engaging way.
Robert Lanza to remind me. One of the most interesting books to cross my desk this summer was Biocentrismwritten by Dr. The book is an out-and-out challenge to modern physics, and its inability to reconcile robwrt fundamental forces of nature and make sense of our universe. Lanza believes that is because physicists fail to take consciousness into account as part of their theories.
As a result he proposes a new theory, biocentrism, that says the universe cannot exist without life and consciousness.
The book basically has three components: My special guest is Dr. I actually have it on my Kindle because I read it over and over again. Let me just tell you who Dr. He has hundreds of publications and inventions and over 20 scientific books. Among them Principles of Tissue Engineering which is recognized as the definite reference in the field. I could go on for a long time giving his credentials. I had on my show Dr. Lanza postulates that it is life that creates the universe instead of the other way around.
He asserts that current theories of the physical world do not work, and biodentrismo never be made to work, unless you include consciousness the observer in the equation. This topic though difficult for most to comprehend if you are new to this subject is very well written. Review of Biocentrism by Stephen J. Hage, Midwest Book Review.
What makes this book both interesting and worth the effort of reading it; is the unique perspective Lanza brings to the subject matter as a physician. Physicians are, by definition, intellectual chimeras because the discipline of medicine is an amalgam of hard science, healing, philosophy, metaphysics and ethics. Each physician must decide what to take and use from that intellectual palette and the decisions they make, in that regard, to a large extent define who they are, how they practice and what kind s of relationships they cultivate with patients and colleagues.
I know this because I worked with physicians for most of my adult life in hospitals. His style is conversational and warm which tends to pull you along through the exposition gently. I very much like what Lanza has to say in Biocentrism. Robert Lanza with Bob Berman. Omnipresence at the speed of light. This is a convergence of religion and science if ever there was one. Biocentrism is the first scientific model to consider consciousness as the source biiocentrismo life and not the reverse.
In other words, the world is perfect for us not by some random spin of the universal roulette wheel, but because it was created by our collective awareness in the first place.
The idea that we create our individual and collective realities is not a new idea in mystical circles. As a scientific model, however, it is very new. Biocentrism is a stunning worldview to arrive at a time that demands greater personal fe collective accountability and empowerment from all of us.
