Robert Lanza is the author of the book on consciousness and science, Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe, released in 2010. It is now the first book in series with the follow-up Beyond Biocentrism and further talks with his publisher for a third.
The gist of Lanza’s argument is a Theory of Everything, that would incorporate all the known laws of classical and quantum physics into a conducive whole, cannot be achieved through physics alone, but must take into account the biological origin of the external world itself.
Let’s see, shall we?
This review critiques Robert Lanza’s book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe. Lanza’s account offers the reader an abnormal interpretation of quantum physics, and it’s ramifications in forming a unique Theory of Everything. Lanza purports to explain how the fundamentally strange behavior of matter at the particle level defines a biocentric creation of the external world, rather than a reality that is separate and distinct from ourselves. This review will evaluate the author’s hypothesis, his approach to arrive at his conclusions, as well as the effectiveness of his theory to explain exhibited behavior in both human and in the external, material realm.
