Is there an afterlife?
Many scientists would dismiss the concept for lack of proof but one expert claims he has evidence to confirm once and for all that there is indeed a life after death. According to Professor Robert Lanza the answer lies in theory of Biocentrism.
Biocentrism — also known as the biocentric universe — is a theory proposed in 2007 by American scientist Robert Lanza. According to this theory — life creates the universe rather than the other way around. Biocentrism asserts that current theories of the physical world do not work, and can never be made to work, until they fully account for life and consciousness.
Lanza’s biocentric theory builds on quantum physics. While physics is considered fundamental to the study of the universe, and chemistry fundamental to the study of life, biocentrism places biology before the other sciences to produce a theory of everything.
Professor Robert Lanza says the evidence lies in the idea that the concept of death is a mere figment of our consciousness. “We think life is just the activity of carbon and an admixture of molecules – we live a while and then rot into the ground”, said the scientist on his website.
Biocentrism explains that the universe only exists because of an individual’s consciousness of it. Life and biology creates the universe; the universe itself does not create life. The same applies to the concepts of space and time, which Professor describes as “simply tools of the mind”.
According to professor the concept of death as we know it is “cannot exist in any real sense” as there are no true boundaries by which to define it. The idea of dying is essentially something we have long been taught to accept, but in reality it just exists in our minds. Professor says that once we begin to question our preconceived concepts of time and consciousness, the alternatives are huge and could alter the way we think about the world in a way not seen since the 15th century’s “flat earth” debate.
Professor Lanza says it can be explained far more simply using colours. Essentially, the sky may be perceived as blue, but if the cells in our brain were changed to make the sky look green, was the sky truly blue or was that just our perception?
When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix.
Professor Lanza explains that, when we die, our life becomes a “perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse”. He added: “Life is an adventure that transcends our ordinary linear way of thinking. When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix.”
