Perhaps death is the biggest mystery for mankind, because no one has yet been able to find out what happens after its onset. However, there are many different theories on the topic of death, and the author of one of the most interesting is the American scientist Robert Lanza.
In his opinion, death does not really exist – people invented it themselves.
To some, the theory may seem like the ravings of a madman, but Robert Lanza cannot be called such. During his life, the 63-year-old scientist made a huge contribution to the study of stem cells used to restore organs.
He is also the author of numerous books in which he even touches on the topic of cloning. For his merits, he even won a place in the ranking of the 100 most influential people in the world according to TIME magazine.
Does death exist?
In 2007, the scientist created the concept of the so-called biocentrism. We are all used to believing that life arose due to the existence of the universe, but the theory of Robert Lanza completely reverses this idea.
In the term biocentrism, the scientist put the idea that we, living beings, are the center of everything that surrounds us – we even create time and the universe itself.
Death is no exception either. According to Robert Lanza, death exists for us only because we begin to identify ourselves with our body from early childhood. After all, we all believe that after stopping the work of all our organs, the same terrible and unknown death will inevitably await us?
But the scientist is sure that even with the inoperability of the body itself, the human mind continues to work and simply moves to another world.
Lanza also argues that biocentrism is an ethical system that is based on the idea that all living things have an intrinsic value and should be respected as such. He argues that humans must recognize that all living things are interdependent and interconnected, and that our actions should be mindful of this interconnectedness.
He proposes that this interconnectedness means that humans must take responsibility for their actions and be conscious of their impact on the environment, as well as the impact of the environment on humans.
What happens after death?
Feels mystical, doesn’t it? However, the scientist substantiates his words with the rules of quantum mechanics, according to which in reality there are a huge number of options for the development of events.
For example, if in one of the “realities” (or Universes, call it what you want) a person died after falling off a cliff, then in some of the parallel worlds he will feel the danger in time and avoid death.
The consciousness that was inside the already dead body will smoothly move into another reality where the person is alive. In a word, human consciousness is immortal and exists outside of space and time.
“Human consciousness is an energy that does not disappear and cannot be destroyed. It can only move endlessly and change its shape,” explained Robert Lanza in one of his works.
According to Biocentrism, space and time are not the hard objects we think. Wave your hand through the air – if you take everything away, what’s left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. You can’t see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain.
Everything you see and experience right now is a whirl of information occurring in your mind. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together.
In a rather casual example, he calls death like finishing a good TV series. You can experience different stories, different characters and of course different endings from the vast library that the universe holds and at the end of them all, it’s still you.
According to him, it’s just the energy and as per the laws of physics, energy can neither be created or destroyed, it just shifts from one state to another. When we die, there’s a break in our linear connection of times and places. And strangely, he says, our linear concept of time means nothing to nature.
Robert Lanza, MD is considered one of the leading scientists in the world. He is the author of “Biocentrism,” a book that lays out his theory of everything.
