Does biocentrism prove there is an afterlife?

Could biocentrism be the key to understanding the nature of reality ? Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 erpete/deviantART
Professor Robert Lanza believes the answer to life after death lies in the science of quantum physics.
Understanding what happens to us after we die is something mankind has been struggling with since the dawn of time. Despite all our advances in science, we have yet to find an answer to what is undoubtedly one of life's greatest mysteries.

But what if death itself is nothing more than a figment of our imaginations ? This is the idea being put forward by Professor Robert Lanza who subscribes to the concept of biocentrism, the idea that the universe itself only exists because of our conscious awareness of it. Instead of the universe creating life, life creates the universe.

With this theory in mind, death is a concept that, in Prof Lanza's own words "cannot exist in any real sense." Even space and time are simply regarded as "tools of the mind".

Prof Lanza believes that the key to understanding life, death and the universe is to question the preconceived notions of reality, time and consciousness and to see the world from an entirely new perspective.

Here's a good rule of thumb; Every time you see or hear someone who isn't a physicist use the word quantum you can safely assume that they don't know what they're talking about.

Clearly you are the one confused. I was talking about Plank Mass. Not 'length'. Did you read any of what I posted or did you leap to conclusions? No, because I know for a fact what you wrote was wrong lmao. The Planck Mass is not 21 micrograms (0.021g) its at the scale of nanograms (0.0000000043kg). Whats funny is the Wiki you linked us too actually tells you that too. The Planck Mass is not the limit for quantum behaviour in objects its the limit at which they can guarentee quantum behaviour is occuring (assuming no measurements with a specialist particle detector). You can get objects large ... [More]

Whats funny is the Wiki you linked us too actually tells you that too. I gotta side with DieChecker here, the wiki in question mentions the ``reduced Planck mass'' of 4.3 x 10-9kg, which is still on the order of micrograms. A nanogram would be ~10-12 kg.

I know what you are getting at, but it is not hard for a non-physicist to understand what something being quantized means. The population of a given city is quantized into individual residents.

Whats funny is the Wiki you linked us too actually tells you that too. No. The Wiki site agreed with me on the size of the Planck Mass. Or, maybe you can quote the part I got wrong? The mistake in your logic is you think mass or size is what determines quantum behaviour. It doesnt. Its information leaking from Object A to Object B. If Object B receives information from Object A then Object A exists as an object to it instead of being a wave.... [More]

Sounds like Quantum Physics is catching up to what the Taoist and Buddhist sages have known for thousands of years. The world is only a reflection of us. We are one and the same with everything else in the universe. An ice cube is never really separate from the ocean, we only perceive it as such with our limited senses.

But isn't it true as humans we are the only existing beings on Earth who can even imagine our own death? Consciousness itself is not tangible, it is formless, and only creates thoughts, emotions etc that are also formless. It does not have a physical existence so how can it create a physical Universe? There is no scientific or religious evidence that consciousness leaves the body because there is no way to measure it. It is not tangible. Death seems to be the absence of consciousness, which makes me think it is similar to unconsciousness. During unconscious states you are unaware of anything a... [More]

Well there's a recent theory that state that an object's physical properties can be disembodied from the object itself: http://phys.org/news/2013-11-physicists-quantum-cheshire-cats-paradoxes.html#jCp Makes you wonder a little...heh!? Some believe everything living or not has a soul.

Conscious dies with the body.. subconscious is forever

Sounds a lot like Zen Buddhism to me.
