Acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of TIME Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People," explains how life creates reality.
Beyond Biocentrism takes the reader on an intellectual thrill-ride as they reexamine everything they thought they knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself. This paradigm-shifting book builds on quantum theory by putting life into the equation. The farther we peer into space, the more we realize that the nature of the universe cannot be understood fully by inspecting spiral galaxies or watching distant supernovas. It lies deeper. It involves our very selves. Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from neurobiology to quantum entanglement. By listening to what the science is telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are fundamental to any true understanding of the universe. This forces a fundamental rethinking of everything we thought we knew about life, death, and our place in the universe.
"Any short statement does not do justice to Lanza's work” —ED Thomas, Nobel Prize winner
“Will forever alter your understanding of your own existence" —Deepak Chopra
"Will machines ever achieve consciousness? Are plants aware? Is death an illusion? These are some of the big questions tackled in Beyond Biocentrism—a huge achievement" —Pamela Weintraub, former Executive Editor of Discover Magazine and Editor-in-chief of OMNI Magazine
