Understanding the True Nature of the Universe with Biocentrism

How to understanding the true nature of the universe? Robert Lanza has teamed with Bob Berman, the most widely read astronomer in the world, to produce Biocentrism, a revolutionary new view of the universe, how life and consciousness are the keys to understanding the true nature of the universe.

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 relationship with the world. For most humans of the 15th century, the notion of Earth as ball of rock was nonsense. The whole of Western, natural philosophy is undergoing a sea change again, increasingly being forced upon us by the experimental findings of quantum theory, and at the same time, towards doubt and uncertainty in the physical explanations of the universe’s genesis and structure. Biocentrism completes this shift in worldview, turning the planet upside down again with the revolutionary view that life creates the universe instead of the other way around.

In this paradigm, life is not an accidental byproduct of the laws of physics. Biocentrism takes the reader on a seemingly improbable 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. Biocentrism will shatter the reader’s ideas of life—time and space, and even death. At the same time it will release us from the dull worldview of life being merely the activity of an admixture of carbon and a few other elements; it suggests the exhilarating possibility that life is fundamentally immortal.

The 21st century is predicted to be the Century of Biology, a shift from the previous century dominated by physics. It seems fitting, then, to begin the century by turning the universe outside-in and unifying the foundations of science with a simple idea discovered by one of the leading life-scientists of our age. 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.

Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe is a delightful read. This book does a fab job at lucidly illustrating the quantum experiments that defy materalistic assumptions and tie reality to the partcipating minds of the observors.

Quantum experiments and quantum mathematics seem to be literally pointing to an Idealistic/Biocentric universe. It seems we no longer live in a cold and dead universe, but rather one that is fundamentally animate and alive! Or as the biologist Rupert Sheldrake would put it, the universe appears to be more like a developing living organism rather than a machine.

Robert Lanza, M. D. is considered one of the leading scientists in the world. He is currently Chief Scientific Officer at Advanced Cell Technology, and Adjunct Professor at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He introduce himself in a theory of understanding the world throught our concience.

Lanza asserts, as the subtitle of his book Biocentrism states, that life and consciousness are the keys to understanding the true nature of the universe. Just how this occurs, Lanza says, has much to do with the extraordinary effects consciousness has been proven to have in the quantum realm. Since experiments conducted in quantum physics have determined that human observers influence behavior of quantum particles in such a manner that results can be shown of a decision before it is made, Lanza suggests this indicates that life itself is the deciding factor in the "Goldilock's Universe" we find ourselves living in.

Biocentrism is a book that will probably change your mind about the nature of the universe even if you cannot agree with everything suggested. Biocentrism offers a sea change in how we think about consciousness and how this affects everything we see and experience. The idea that biology and life influence our perception of the world is at the very least a fascinating alternative to religion or atheism. The last chapter asks "Where Do We Go From here?" Although no final solution is proposed the hope that a multidisciplinary approach will incorporate biocentrism is upplifting. This excellent book will definitely challenge you view of reality.
