Beyond biocentrism : rethinking time, space, consciousness, and the illusion of death

Image of item
Book
"In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of Time magazine's '100 Most Influential People' in 2014, and leading astronomer Bob Berman take readers 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. All of science is based on information passing through our consciousness, but science doesn't even know what consciousness is and can't explain the linkage between subatomic states and observation by conscious observers. Science describes life as a 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. Beyond 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 scientific discoveries are telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are central 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."--Dust jacket.
