What’s real and what’s not? All of us have some kind of perception on how everything works, but on a day to day basis we can see stories which can alter your perception and point towards something which is not what you’d expect. Some of those pointers, can also be a little extreme.
So how far can they go?
I believe this will leave you baffled.
Literally, everything you see, including the screen you are reading this article on, the bed you’re sitting on, the sounds that come to your years, nothing of this exists-all of that is only a process that occurs in the back of your brain.
The theory gives strong explanations to what happens after death, as you can read below.
Let’s simplify the theory a bit so you can understand it fully:
The surrounding that we have a perception of, is actually a presumption in our consciousness, and the real consciousness means being aware of an “out there” of ourselves. But, in fact, there is no “out there”.
“What we perceive as reality is a process that involves our consciousness. An ‘external’ reality, if it existed, would—by definition—have to exist in space. But this is meaningless, because space and time are not absolute realities but rather tools of the human and animal mind.”
This is the main principle the Biocentrism is founded on.
It was explained by Dr. Robert Lanza, in the book he published Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe.
Biocentrism has a foundation that states that that the universe came from life-not the opposite. Basically, a rounded theory of everything that comes to similar conclusions as of the non-duality theory. Biology is in the center in other sciences.
You might think this is another article about the crazy ideas of some garden philosopher:
Take into consideration that Dr. Lanza is considered to be one of the greatest minds nowadays.
Dr. Lanza is affirmed scientist and principal in stem cells.
The TIME magazine in 2014, listed him as one of the 100 most influential people on the planet.
New York Times made him the third most important scientist alive and in 2015 he found himself on the Prospect Magazine’s list of “World Thinkers 2015”.
Dr. Lanza explains that, we use space and time like tools that and our brain mainly uses them to get info just to make a coherent experience.
Biocentrism states that that’s how consciousness is formed.
Take a second to think about this:
Lanza states that same algorithms are used by the brain, disregarding the fact whether you’re awake or asleep. When you’re dreaming, your brain creates a spation-temporal reality, which in fact is a real 3D reality in which we live in during the day while awake.
Further, he explains:
“At death, there‘s a break in our linear stream of consciousness, and thus a break in the linear connection of times and places. Indeed, biocentrism suggests it’s a manifold that leads to all physical possibilities. More and more physicists are beginning to accept the ‘many-worlds’ interpretation of quantum physics, which states that there is an infinite number of universes. Everything that can possibly happen occurs in some universe.”
On top of that he notes:
“Death doesn’t exist in these scenarios, since all of them exist simultaneously regardless of what happens in any of them. The ‘me’ feeling is just energy operating in the brain. But energy never dies; it cannot be destroyed.”
