Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Building on quantum physics, Biocentrism turns the planet upside down with the revolutionary view that life creates the universe instead of the other way around. The central claim of Biocentrism is that what we call space and time are forms of animal perceptions rather than external physical objects. Lanza and Berman take readers on a fascinating journey through a foreign universe - our own - that will alter their perception of reality for ever.

Biographie de l'auteur

Robert Lanza "Robert Lanza was taken under the wing of scientific giants such as psychologist B.F. Skinner, immunologist Jonas Salk, and heart transplant pioneer Christiaan Barnard. His mentors described him as a 'genius,' a 'renegade thinker,' even likening him to Einstein himself." --US News & World Report cover story Robert Lanza has been exploring the frontiers of science for more than four decades, and is considered one of the leading scientists in the world. He is currently Chief Scientific Officer at Advanced Cell Technology, and Adjunct Professor at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He has several hundred publications and inventions, and 20 scientific books, among them, Principles of Tissue Engineering, which is recognized as the definitive reference in the field. Others include One World: The Health & Survival of the Human Species in the 21st Century (with a foreword by President Jimmy Carter), and the Handbook of Stem Cells and Essentials of Stem Cell Biology, which are considered the definitive references in stem cell research. Dr. Lanza received his B.A. and M.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was both a University Scholar and Benjamin Franklin Scholar. He was also a Fulbright Scholar, and was part of the team that cloned the world's first human embryo, as well as the first to clone an endangered species, to demonstrate that nuclear transfer could reverse the aging process, and to generate stem cells using a method that does not require the destruction of human embryos. Dr. Lanza was awarded the 2005 Rave Award for Medicine by Wired magazine, and received the 2006 "All Star" Award for Biotechnology by Mass High Tech. Dr. Lanza and his research have been featured in almost every media outlet in the world, including all the major television networks, CNN, Time, Newsweek, People magazine, as well as the front pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today, among others. Lanza has worked with some of the greatest thinkers of our time, including Nobel Laureates Gerald Edelman and Rodney Porter. Lanza worked closely with B.F. Skinner at Harvard University. Lanza and Skinner (the "Father of Modern Behaviorism") published a number of scientific papers together. He has also worked with Jonas Salk (discoverer of the polio vaccine) and heart transplant pioneer Christiaan Barnard. Bob Berman "this is a fascinating guy" --David Letterman "fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight" --Astronomy magazine Bob Berman is the most widely read astronomer in the world. Author of more than one thousand published articles, in publications such as Discover and Astronomy magazine, where he is a monthly columnist, he is also astronomy editor of The Old Farmer's Almanac and the author of four books. He is adjunct professor of astronomy at Marymount College, and writes and produces a weekly show on Northeast Public Radio, aired during NPR's Weekend Edition.

A completely different outlook on how life and the universe are entangled in a way that one cannot exist without the other. This book had me riveted. It made me look at the world in a different way. Often I'd stop reading and just look around me, to try and experience the theory.
Absolutely fascinating.
For those who enjoy the world of physics, quantum physics, spirituality and how we perceive 'reality'.
Very rare I read a book twice, with this one I did.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Biocentrism's time has come 20 avril 2016
Par Mike Byrne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I am currently reading the author's follow-up book to "Biocentrism"..."Beyond Biocentrism"...which has not yet been released to the public. So let me say that if you are not at all familiar with the weird world of quantum physics, I think you would be best off waiting a few weeks for the release of the author's 2nd book, "Beyond Biocentrism," and reading that book first. The author spends more time describing quantum weirdness in plain English in his second book than he does in the first book.

If you already know a little bit about the quantum world...(you don't need to know a lot,) you will enjoy "Biocentrism." The author has a wonderful sense of humor which adds spice to the science. In fact one of the funniest things I have read in a long time is in this book. It has to do with the Ishihara Color Test. It completely cracked me up.

There are a lot of books out there now related to this subject matter, and many of them are not worth your time...just authors cashing in on the latest theory of everything. But I am careful about choosing books. And Robert Lanza is a highly respected scientist specializing in the field of stem cell research, so I trust this guy. And Lanza is also quite frank in stating that much of his thinking on this subject is pure theory...not to be confused with scientific fact.

The subject matter is not exactly new, but new ideas sometimes need to hang out there in the realm of possibilities for a while before they gather momentum. I remember first hearing about the beginnings of this theory from the writings of David Bohm, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics back in the 1970s; and here it is about fifty years later and it is beginning to catch intellectual fire. If you are willing to keep an open mind, "Biocentrism" will give you lots to think about. Like ... what happens when we die? Does our consciousness stop, or does it just keep going on? Enjoy.

Those into quantum physics, consciousness, philosophy, science, or even just like ask questions will find this book a delight. Biocentrism, both the book and the theory is explain in a clear and consist manor. The writing is close to conversational- it's not like lecture or like talking to a friend, but the tone is just between the two. You get a very good understanding of Biocentrism (and what it entails) and even a basic understanding of quantum physics, which not many books succeed in teaching the basic concepts since popular culture got a hand on the concept.

The book contains the principles (a chapter for each principles) of biocentrism and then what the theory means to us and to the universe. Each principle-chapter starts from the ground up with analogies and scientific facts to explain and support the principles clearly to the reader. Even concepts you already understand are interesting to ready through just to see where the authors will take you with it.
It is NOT too heady and scientific to read casually or for people who do not typically reads citified studies. I found this book easy to put up, hard to put down, and easy to get back into without skipping a beat after a long break. The restatement of the principles at the end of each chapter really helped with keeping me in tune with the book after a long break and to help drive the principles home and into memory. I

This book introduces lots of interesting concepts and it can give you a whole new view of the universe. It is not fact- it is a theory book yet to be proven, but it does not require you to sacrifice yourself, your beliefs, or your sense to understand it. Unless you think time is real, I suppose, but I blame the school systems for that. The chapter on death and consciousness should also be read by anyone and everyone even if they don't want to read the rest of the greatness. I

Please read this book, don't pass it up. It doesn't take that long and it is truly amazing. I shall part with my favorite quote from this book (well, one)
"This time dilation effect is minor until one nears the speed of light, then it becomes awesome."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Now we have truly begun. 6 juillet 2016
Par ALAN M MONTGOMERY - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is Something Special.
"Quantum physics for the seeker" is how I think of it.

I've read a few books that impressed me over the years. This one, though, is different in that it combines 'two worlds'.

I've tended toward a split psychology, I guess. I was naturally drawn to see the workings of things, mechanics, physics, logic. Yet always I wanted the deeper answers as to what it was all about. To the extent that I found those answers they were found in reading and experience that was almost the diametric opposite of the physical, logical world; "In the head" vs. measurable, touchable reality. Two different things.

Maybe you've heard about someone's "When I first read the Bible" or "My first meditation" sort of experience. Well, this one is more powerful than that, in that it COMBINES the core questions of existence with 'scientific', that is, actual physical/experimental, proof.

I have, indeed, read a good few 'spiritually-oriented' books. My experience with them has always been that once I put them down, I am again faced with the same humdrum daily 'existence' of house, work, tromping about in that same old body, etc; 'physical reality' reasserts itself, and it's easy to feel that those deeply felt Truths I read just the other day were nothing but dreams, and 'this' <stomp on floor> is 'reality'.

Herein, you will be confronted with the limits of 'physical reality' in a way that you cannot avoid through the usual 'logic' of the modern mind. This is the result of SCIENCE, not speculation. Flip the switch, the light turns on. Push that lever, and the toilet flushes.

Doctor Lanza is a research scientist in biology. Yet somehow from his youth he has maintained the ability to ask the Large Questions.

In this book, he has lain out a framework for answering them, based upon scientifically-derived reality, rather than just another 'spiritual perspective'.

I suppose by now you've seen at least one or two quotes about how amazing and bizarre the apparent implications of quantum physics are - Well, this drills down on them, and lays out the startling implications quite clearly.

For me, the small cost of the book was easily justified by one chapter alone, where he talks about those experiments with particles going through two slits... Do you remember hearing about that? Matter is also a wave, right? Well, I thought I had 'heard about it', too, along with some over-enthusiastic interpretations (- as I thought at the time).

He describes in sufficient (though not horribly technical) detail how those experiments were laid out, and what they showed. They showed MUCH more than just wave/particle duality!!

He lays out an implied world-view that is as radically different from our current standard as one can imagine, and does so in an ineluctably logical fashion.

Have a look in here, and get a real glimpse. I think it will tickle you in a very deep place. It did me.

Thank you, Robert Lanza and Bob Berman, for bringing us 'happy few' into a truly New Paradigm.

As you point out, it will probably take our society many long years before this becomes as well understood as the basic mechanics of Newton, but now we have truly begun.

It's like that opening scene in "2001...".

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Place no head above your own. - Buddhist proverb 29 novembre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Well-written and (mostly) internally consistent presentation of a very different approach to the nature of reality.
The authors (though it appears that Dr. Lanza did almost all the writing) posit that the universe exists only in potential, not realized, form until observed by some conscious entity. The probability wave-form "collapses" yielding position and velocity only when observed. Time and space are not "real," but rather the means used by consciousness to perceive the universe.
Not sure I buy it all, but it's food for thought, worthy of consideration when written by an extremely bright person who has greater mastery of the subject than you, the reader.
The last chapter or two, alas, degenerates into a "we don't have any proof, but we'll go out on a religious limb" summary, which was a great disappointment.

This is one of the most important books written in a good long while. For over 100 years quantum physics has sat balanced and unresolved, ready to fall on the side of classical physics and materialism, or to finally embrace to resolve the quantum enigma that life presented. The classical school anachronists, despite unparalleled advances in all other scientific fields, haven’t had the wherewithal – primarily scientific courage – to confront the challenge of moving this field forward. Well, Robert Lanza has brilliantly confronted this, to make probably the most significant advance in the last forty years. It would naturally take someone who possesses both scientific acumen and spiritual acuity to pull this off. In retrospect it is clear that the answer couldn’t come from hard science alone, but would require a tremendously high polymath mind to blend in the necessary component of spiritual philosophy - after all, it was the life ingredient they couldn't think with. A scientific centrism bereft of the bio, not only makes us a cosmic joke and a relatively impossible dice throw, but is also pointless. And he presents this tectonic shift of thought with an astonishing form of academic grace. If Einstein had been born again in this new age where such ideas are (barely) acceptable, and written his theorems in a new type of scientific poetry to incorporate life, it would have to be similar to Biocentrism. (Makes you wonder about reincarnation.)
