At death, you forget all the limitations of the physical body and realize how free you are.
Now, mind you, my motivation was not all that pure. It was my intention to read the book so I could more effectively refute it like a dedicated physicist was expected to. I consider myself to be firmly and exclusively entrenched in the cosmology camp embodied by the likes of Stephen Hawking, Lisa Randall, Brain Greene, and Edward Witten.
After all, you know what Julius Caesar said: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. It became necessary to penetrate the biocentrism camp.
The book had the completely opposite effect on me. The views that Dr. Lanza presented in this book changed my thinking in ways from which there could never be retreat.
Before I had actually finished reading the book, it was abundantly obvious to me that Dr. Everything I had learned and everything I thought I knew just exploded in my mind and, as possibilities first erupted and then settled down, a completely new understanding emerged.
It is an elementary conclusion from quantum mechanics. So what Lanza says in this book is not new. Then why does Robert have to say it at all? It is because we, the physicists, do NOT say it—or if we do say it, we only whisper it, and in private—furiously blushing as we mouth the words.
True, yes; politically correct, hell no! Bless Robert Lanza for creating this book, and bless Bob Berman for not dissuading friend Robert from going ahead with it. You should enjoy this book, and it should help you on your personal journey to understanding. I read for inspiration and for a much-needed infusion of wonder, in an effort to counterbalance the jaundiced view of life I have just reinforced by scanning the New York Times.
Probably the most remarkable thing for me about this book is that it sounds so much like Nyogen Roshi, the Zen teacher I have been listening to for some 13 years now.
If I had to reduce this book to one statement it would be: My perceptions are reality. They are the only reality I can ever know because the universe is literally in my head; it was born when I was born, it will die when I die. From the common point of view, this is outrageously narcissistic.
From the standpoint of neuroanatomy, however, it is indisputable: Everything we perceive is processed within different parts of the brain. The main author, Robert Lanza, works in the field of stem-cell research, but he takes on the same basic issues that have preoccupied the great theoretical physicists of our time.
He approaches the subject from a fundamentally different angle — that of consciousness — and does it in a way that is accessible and relevant to people untrained in science. This insight, no matter how conceptual or superficial, can also serve as the starting point for personal responsibility.
If I can be aware that my universe is the only one there is, then maybe I can treat it with more care. And that could potentially make your universe a little better. It is astounding — not to mention humbling — that I appear to be doomed to forget this fact almost every moment of my waking life.
Fortunately, I do have the ability to remind myself, and to the degree that I am able to do that which increases with my own sense of urgency to do soI get to experience life in a more open, sane and engaging way.
Robert Lanza to remind me. Robert Lanza, who is probably best known for his groundbreaking work with stem cells. The book is an out-and-out challenge to modern physics, and its inability to reconcile the fundamental forces of nature and make sense of our universe.
Lanza believes that is because physicists fail to take consciousness into account as part of their theories. As a result he proposes a new theory, biocentrism, that says the universe cannot exist without life and consciousness.
The book basically has three components: I actually have it on my Kindle because I read it over and over again.One in seven Americans will experience the death of a parent or sibling before age 20 (New York Life survey, ).
Given that many children and adolescents will experience the death of a loved one, and that death is universal and an inescapable part of life, it is important for society to understand how youth view death and dying in order to best support them. Children will be exposed to sickness and death at some point in their young lives because death is part of the natural cycle of life.
Even young children who may not understand death react to grieving parents. Older children grieve themselves.
