Beyond Biocentrism: Rethinking Time, Space, Consciousness, and the Illusion of Death Read Online Free - Biocentrism shocked the world with a radical rethinking of the nature of reality.
But that was just the beginning.
In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of TIME Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People in 2014," and leading astronomer Bob Berman, take the reader on an intellectual thrill-ride as they re-examine everything we thought we knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself.
The first step is acknowledging that our existing model of reality is looking increasingly creaky in the face of recent scientific discoveries. Science tells us with some precision that the universe is 26.8 percent dark matter, 68.3 percent dark energy, and only 4.9 percent ordinary matter, but must confess that it doesn’t really know what dark matter is and knows even less about dark energy. Science is increasingly pointing toward an infinite universe but has no ability to explain what that really means. Concepts such as time, space, and even causality are increasingly being demonstrated as meaningless.
All of science is based on information passing through our consciousness but science hasn’t the foggiest idea what consciousness is, and it can’t explain the linkage between subatomic states and observation by conscious observers. Science describes life as an random occurrence in a dead universe but has no real understanding of how life began or why the universe appears to be exquisitely designed for the emergence of life.
The biocentrism theory isn’t a rejection of science. Quite the opposite. Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to quantum entanglement and consciousness.
By listening to what the science is telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are fundamental to any true understanding of the universe. This forces a fundamental rethinking of everything we thought we knew about life, death, and our place in the universe.

This was a quite interesting and thought provoking book. I did not agree with all the author said, but he made many good points. The author, Robert Lanza, is not quack; he "is one of the most respected scientists in the world-- a U.S. News & World Report cover story called him a "genius" and...

Biocentrism is a way of defining the nature of physical reality
Biocentrism is a concept that suggests the consciousness creates the universe and not the cosmos creating life and consciousness. Consequently life (biology) is primal to understanding physical reality that is normally described by t...

I heard an interview with the authors on the CBC Radio show Ideas, and felt this was right up my alley!
In a very tiny nutshell, Biocentrism is a theory espoused by Lanza and based on overwhelming 20th Century physics, that the living observer is THE necessary ingredient, the bedrock foundation of...

An unfortunate case of a brilliant scientist thinking they have found the answer in another area of science to which they have little to no expertise. There is a big difference between unknowable versus currently unknown which the authors seem not to grasp. Likewise their focus on the double slit...

In this very informative and often funny book the well respected authors are closing the gap between science and spirituality with the help of quantum physics. If you are trying to connect the dots between the mechanical understanding of our Universe and the teachings of many (mostly eastern) spi...

The book would have probably benefited from being edited somewhat differently but as far as the pure scientific knowledge imparted to general audiences, I think it could easily be the best nonfiction book of 2016, even if the year has three more quarters to go (but let's look at it outside of the...

Occasionally entertaining but wholly unconvincing
Seems like a strange book for the authors to write. It is a book clearly intended to persuade "others" of the veracity of biocentrism. But, according to biocentrism, there's no such thing as "others" since we are all one (per the author's religious...

A remarkable book
I had read the previous book based on an article shared on Facebook. I have been interested in science, Quantum Physics, consciousness etc for some time and books that tie these fields together are inherently interesting to me. We'll written, logically presented. The science is...

This was a very clearly laid out thesis for his premise (except for his too hurried explanation of the two slit experiment, which is so fascinating, it show be studied carefully elsewhere). This book will change your mind about many things you thought were a given, like sight and hearing, the gra...
