Quantum Physicist States:'Death' is All in the Mind

 Most scientists dismiss the idea of 'life after death' as a fanciful notion which is impossible to prove. In fact, new research indicates that it is actually the idea of 'death' which is becoming less likely and harder to prove, as everything we learn about quantum physics suggests that space and time do not actually exist in our perceived linear structure, so, in theory, death cannot possibly exist.

Professor Robert Lanza, Chief Scientific Officer at Advanced Cell Technology, and Adjunct Professor at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, explains the theory which has evolved from a field of quantum physics known as biocentrism. Biocentrism, classed as the 'theory of everything' and derived from the Greek for 'life centre", is based on a concept that life and biology are central to being, reality, and the cosmos, and that life creates the universe, not the other way around. So in these terms, death is merely an illusion formed by our idea of consciousness.

Professor Lanza explains that biocentrism encompasses the theory put forward by theoretical physicists, namely that there are an infinite number of universes in which every possible outcome or event is taking place simultaneously. To accept this version of reality, Lanza says that we must first re-evaluate the way we have been programmed to view time and consciousness; he suggests that this will be the most significant mental shift for humankind since the 15th century when scientists revealed that the earth was round and not flat.

Like the concept outlined in the Wachowski Bros film, "The Matrix", it appears that our notion of 'reality' is merely an illusion which has been tailored to meet our pre-conceived expectations. Lanza explains that, when we perceive that the sky is blue, it is because we have been programmed to believe that this is true, but that our brain cells could be altered to interpret the sky as green, red or any other colour.

In a memorable scene from the Matrix movie, which starred Keanu Reeves, the heroes believed they were being taught to bend a spoon with their minds until it was revealed that the spoon wasn't real. Professor Lanza suggests that we take part in a similar exercise every day when we behold our perceived surroundings:

"The shapes, colors, and forms known as your kitchen are seen as they are solely because photons of light from the overhead bulb bounce off the various objects and then interact with your brain through a complex set of retinal and neural intermediaries,"

"But on its own, light doesn't have any colour, nor any brightness, nor any visual characteristics at all. It’s merely an electrical and magnetic phenomenon," he explained."So while you may think that the kitchen as you remember it was there in your absence, the unquestionable reality is that nothing remotely resembling what you can imagine could be present when a consciousness is not interacting."

If we view the universe from a biocentric perspective, then space and time must also be subject to the same rules and as such are simply mental constructs of our own creation; on his website, the scientists encourages us to accept that space and time are merely "tools of our minds". The concept of 'death' therefore cannot exist in a world without spatial or linear boundaries, and therefore 'death' appears to have no real basis in quantum science.

Professor Lanza hypothesises that, after death, our life becomes a “perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse”. He added: “Life is an adventure that transcends our ordinary linear way of thinking. When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix.”

"What you see could not be present without your consciousness," he summarized."'Our consciousness makes sense of the world."

Lanza says that the well-known 'double slit' experiment helps to illustrate his theory. During the experiment, a laser light source was passed through a barrier containing two parallel slits and the passage of light through the slits was observed on a plate behind the barrier. Scientists noted that the light particles acted like bullets travelling through a single slit when observed, but their behavior appeared to be altered when they were not being watched, when the particles moved through the holes like a wave which was able to go through both slits at the same time.

This demonstrates that matter and energy can act as two separate entities, displaying characteristics of both waves and particles, and that the behavior of the particle is altered by the observing person's perception and consciousness. This concept can theoretically be applied to everything existing in the universe.

Lanza commented: "Some of the thrill that came with the announcement we are close to understanding the Big Bang rests in our human desire for completeness and totality. But most of these theories fail to take into account one crucial factor: We are creating them."

Lanza's full theory is explained in his book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.

The concept of 'heaven and hell' may still be explained to some degree by this theory, as it appears that we can potentially create our own realities, either positive or negative, or at least our perception of them. For those who have scoffed at books like The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne, or The Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer, in which it is suggested that we create our own realities, there is now a field of science which can apparently substantiate these theories.

So my kitchen isn't really there unless I conjure it up? How do you explain that a photograph taken of my kitchen looks just like my real kitchen.

Because taking a picture is an act of intention or observation. You dont actually have to observe something to make it real. Scientists have found that just thinking about an experiment can change the outcome. You dont actually have to observe it visually. And besides consciousness essentially permeates the universe so even if you are not in your kitchen something living probably is which would cause it to exist.

This quantum stuff is hard to get your head around. Maybe its impossible to get your head. Who knows?

wasn't there a guy (not Kirilian, but someone) who used to take "photos" with the cover on the camera and what came out on the film was what was in his mind... who says your photo is real? ;-)

and maybe that's what bugs and bacteria and stuff are... the "something living" that holds reality together in our absence...

The Key: People die into their beliefs... but most survive it.

here is a demonstrates I have done many time. I would go to a meeting of people i did not know or meant before. I would ask 2 to 3 for a photo of someone they had in thier wallet. I had them place that picture into an envelope without me seeing the picture. I would than place them with a stack of envelopes with a blank picture. I would pass out the each envelope to a person with snow card and pen and told them to write down what they could see on the photo.

I never fail that those you got the blank photo saw only a blank photo no matter how hard they tried to see something. those you got the photo with a picture saw exactly what was on the photo of that person they never saw before.

by the way niether was I or the people suppling the photo were in the room when this happen I took them to an early lunch. and the person conducting this for me had no idea what this was all about because I told them what to do only 15 min. before leaving the room.

how can you explained that piece of reality holding itself together?

complex, we have another choice , of course we have another choice!, Your experiancvce are of what made the densities of earth.

I don't undastan 2012sherman, could they draw a picture of the person on the picture in the closed envelope?
