Summary Beyond Biocentrism: Rethinking Time, Space, Consciousness, and the Illusion of Death

Beyond Biocentrism: Rethinking Time, Space, Consciousness, and the Illusion of Death Read & Download ¶ 106 O real understanding of how life began or why the universe appears to be exuisitely designed for the emergence of life The biocentrism theory isn't a rejection of science uite the opposite Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to uantum 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 univers. So far one of the best books I ve ever read Super recommend This book taught me a lot If you like uantum physics astronomy etc this book is for you This book is made for curious minds It challenges you and everything around you

Beyond Biocentrism: Rethinking Time, Space, Consciousness, and the Illusion of Death Read & Download ¶ 106 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 Most Influential People in and leading astronomer Bob Berman take the listener on an intellectual thrill ride as they reexamine 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 percent dark matter percent dark energy. Sometimes it feels like my whole life has been a uest for truth My mother is a devout Methodist while my father is agnostic not that he really admits as much to my mother While there are aspects of Christianity that I admire I grew up knowing that I didn t buy the whole package In my teens and young adult years I looked to Eastern religion Buddhism and Taoism most notably and science for answers but while I ve often felt like I m on the verge of a great understanding I ve never really found what I ve been looking for In my older adult years I have largely abandoned the process Partially because I m too busy taking care of kids and putting food on the table but partially because I ve started to get the feeling that the uest is pointlessSo I was intrigued when I saw this book Basically we re told everything we know is wrong I don t find that much of a leap At various points I found this book intriguing exciting challenging fulfilling baffling irritating and exasperating Any book that can do all that is probably well worth reading even if you re not fully on board with all of the conclusionsThe first half of the book is devoted to deconstructing what we think we know about the world We delve into uantum theory relativity and other theories to show that time and space don t exist at least not as we commonly perceive them Contrary to what we know with science not to mention what we feel in our guts spooky action at a distance is not only possible it s uite common Science is so focused on objectivity that it leaves a gaping hole in our knowledge a hole that can only be filled by losing objectivity That is to really understand and make sense of what science has been telling us we have to look to the observer our own subjective sense The authors take us through experiments like the double slit experiment as well as looking at entangled twin particles that seem to know and replicate what the other is doing even if the other is galaxies awayNext we delve into deconstructing the dumb random universe theory Simply by looking at the chances that 10 books arranged randomly on a shelf would happen to end up in alphabetical order a probability of about 1 in 35 million we can see that it stretches credibility to believe that everything in our universe has ended up the way it is simply by random chance The chances that a galaxy like ours would randomly have a solar system with a planet that is perfectly suited for life would simply happen because of particles randomly bumping into each other is so astronomical as to be impossible The authors demolish the idea of string theory the idea of multiple universes as being a theory of everything and hence a theory of nothing And in any case even if this dumb random universe theory were correct no one has yet given a satisfactory explanation as to how consciousness as arisen out of all of this randomnessThe later part of the book develops the authors answer to these dilemmas We have been in fact starting backward trying to arrive at consciousness by studying physics and biology We should rather start with consciousness and then the universe makes sense There is according to the authors no out there out there Everything happens in our minds so it is our minds that we need to start with In other words thousands of years of exploration observation and science have led us back to where the ancient Hindus started thousands of years agoI ll have to admit first off that I am no scientific expert so I did not follow all of the science in this book A large part of science is being able to get your head around it to be able to visualize even roughly what the theories and euations are pointing to I admit I was often rather lost in this way The authors develop their argument step by step brick by brick in a seemingly incontrovertible way But perhaps because I can t get my head around it all I remain skeptical For one thing I have to uestion their sources Dr Lanza is a medical doctor and I have a hard time believing he also has a deep and thorough knowledge of theoretical physics those are rather big fields for any one person to master Berman seems to be of a science generalist who came to the field because of his own enlightenment experience Many of the references seem to come from SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN and other layman s magazines Not to disparage those publications but being as they are written for the lay audience they are of necessity rather simplified My field is psychology and I have read both academic journals and popular publications like PSYCHOLOGY TODAY I can tell you that the latter is wildly simplified often to the point of errorBut in any case my real issue is that biocentrism doesn t really solve or explain anything than any other scientific or religious approach It just raises uestion many of which are the same as any religion If everything boils down to consciousness whence did consciousness come from Again we re back to an unexplainable first cause Further whose consciousness The authors freuently use the words our mind Is this meant to imply a collective consciousness I suppose so if we re all part of some overarching consciousness and divisions and dualities are all illusions If not we re back to Descartes I think therefore I am because I can only verify my own consciousness perhaps I m dreaming and making up everything elseIf there really are no dualities and all is illusion how did these illusions come to be Did we each split ourselves off from this overarching consciousness Or did this consciousness split us off And in either case why What are we here for And what happens after death which doesn t really exist Do we rejoin the larger consciousness Will we retain any individual sense of ourselves as separate or will we just merge into the larger whole which for all practical purposes is annihilation Biocentrism doesn t answer these fundamental uestions any better than God did it or turtles all the way down Moreover if everything is consciousness and everything else is illusion that renders life itself meaningless If there is no death then it doesn t matter that people are dying of hunger or war or lack of medical care they are just rejoining this larger consciousness sooner In fact we should all just lay down and die What difference does suffering and evil and oppression make anyway While I don t buy into any of the Western religions I do admire them for struggling with the meaning of life and death good and evil struggle and altruismNonetheless I am very glad I read this book and I have passed it on to other people and look forward to discussion on the issues raised I was as noted very challenged by this book and it has opened up new possibilities The book is well written and intriguing and despite my skepticism not easily brushed off or dismissed Incidentally I have not read the first book I would like to go back and see if that book answers any of the uestions raised here Whether you agree disagree or simply remain skeptical I recommend reading this book for some very satisfying food for thought

Rather disappointing after ground shaking first book As if Lanza did not really believe that what he says is true he hesitates and plays very cautious and defensive Why
