Quantum Mechanics Proves an Afterlife Through ‘Biocentrism’ Says Scientist

Quantum mechanicsQuantum mechanics and other rules of quantum physics prove that there is an afterlife, according to scientist Robert Lanza. Lanza is a physicist who recently proposed the theory of “biocentrism.” This theory states that humans are eternal beings who have created the concept of life and death with our own consciousnesses and that death actually does not exist; we only think it exists because it’s what we have collectively come to believe. Humans create the universe with our consciousness, not the other way around, Lanza says.

To illustrate his theory of an afterlife, Lanza uses the famous and well-known “double slit experiment.” This test proves that all matter can act as a wave, and as such can exist simultaneously in multiple places, but is only perceived to be a singular unit of movement when it is watched by humans. In other words, only our consciousness-our perception-makes the particle behave like a linear object. When the particle is not watched by the human eye, it acts like a wave and passes through multiple slits simultaneously.

This experiment, Lanza says, is the key to our understanding of how our consciousness creates what we perceive to be reality. In this way, his theory is parallel to the theoretical idea of multiverses. There are some theoretical physicists who believe that we exist not just in one universe, but in a possibly infinite number of multiple universes; and that everything that could possibly happen-every scenario that could possibly be imagined-is happening simultaneously in another universe starring us; we just don’t know it.

Lanza says we create everything around us and that death is simply an illusion that we have also created. He says that each person is a “perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse,” and that “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.” This happens, he adds, through the theory of biocentrism and the workings of quantum mechanics. Lanza has written a book about his findings entitled Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.

Lanza’s ideas, however, have been soundly debunked and rejected by numerous scientists as a misunderstanding of actual quantum mechanics and the laws of quantum physics. In a blog post entitled Biocentrism Demystified: A Response to Deepak Chopra and Robert Lanza’s Notion of a Conscious Universe, scientist and writer Vinod Wadhawan debunks both Lanza and the self-proclaimed “guru” Deepak Chopra, who holds similar views to Lanza, thusly:

-Space and time exist, even though they are relative and not absolute.

-Modern quantum theory, long after the now-discredited Copenhagen interpretation, is consistent with the idea of an objective universe that exists without a conscious observer.

-Lanza and Chopra misunderstand and misuse the anthropic principle.

-The biocentrism approach does not provide any new information about the nature of consciousness, and relies on ignoring recent advances in understanding consciousness from a scientific perspective.

-Both authors show thinly-veiled disdain for Darwin, while not actually addressing his science in the article. Chopra has demonstrated his utter ignorance of evolution multiple times.

Wadhawan’s post is extremely thorough in describing the actual quantum mechanics and rules of quantum physics and how they don’t add up to prove Lanza’s theories correct. Additionally, mainstream science rejects those who do not understand Darwin’s theory of evolution. This theory is generally understood and accepted by the scientific community.

Quantum mechanics proves an afterlife through “biocentrism” says scientist Lanza, but his views are regarded as “pseudo-science” by the larger community of researchers.

    Well if Einstein was right and their is no reality, only the illusion of a reality, then I guess any illusion of reality is real to that person betty roundhead quantum metaphysicist

    Oh the irony….. The pseudoscience is when scientists believe that there is an actual materialistic universe out there that isn’t just comprised of information. Obviously it’s scientific fact that our brain takes information out there and makes sense of it. Where is the “woo woo” now?

    Note to the author: Robert Lanza is NOT a physicist. He is an MD and a scientist in the study of stem cell research.

    @ Mike:- Yes you are right in thinking that way that ‘whatever beliefs we hold is creating reality….. we are actually creating how the universe ticks.’
    Think about the implications!!

    hmmm, just a little devils advocate here, if the universe is being generated by the combined consciousness of sentient beings, doesn’t it follow then that we would be making the rules? so eventually whatever theories we hold may eventually become the reality, what we think we are discovering thru science may actually be us creating or altering the very fabric of our universe. our whole scientific establishment may not be discovering what makes the universe tick but actually creating how the universe ticks!! 🙂

      if you listen to the successful people from history and the people of today, most of them got their way by trusting in the universe and having a positive outlook on their goals.
      jim carrey once claimed to have ” just believed he already had what he wanted” and he got every single thing he wanted. he wrote a check for a certain amount of money, and got it. our consciousnesses are the very existence of everything, so whatever we want to make happen, we can do it.
      i got my house, car, job, and savings this way.
      ive had days where it seemed cars just all moved out of my lane during a whole trip to the beach making a straight ride when barely any stops.
      watch “the secret” on netflix for a basic explanation. after i watched that. i studied biocentrism, , pantheism, and the Fibonacci sequence. the universe has the answers, and you are the universe. success can be as simple as happiness or peace. “buddhist scriptures speak of hundreds of billions of world systems, and consciousness existing since beginningless of time” – the dalai lama

    This takes us miles closer to the reality! So very glad!!!!
    Totally support Robert Lanza’s theory!

      Us “nerds” are actually a wide collection of people with almost nothing in common other than an interest in the world: science, philosophy, etc. And, we don’t all share an emotional condition (anger). We’re actually individuals, and as far as I can tell, not particularly “angry”. BUT, i have two related questions: why would you feel the need to call everyone on here “nerds”? And, what exactly do you see in my post (below) that indicates anger?

    ACTUALLY, this article is only B.S. when we look at it; when we look away, the uncollapsed wave packet extends it probabilistically into the domain of quality journalism.

    But seriously, don’t blame Lanza. ANYONE can speculate wildly — it’s what beers are for.
    The fault here lies with those who would take any rag seriously named for Las Vegas.

    Would any of you be lending your thoughtful critiques to an article in “The Enquirer”?
    This story is up there with “‘Elvis is Alive,’ a Las Vegas ‘Doctor’ Says”.

    You should be ashamed of publishing hogbarf like this under the rubric of science, rather than the befuddled bloviation it truly is. Does your rag have any claim to quality or is it the equivalent of a toilet wall?

    None of the claims made in this article have any scientific merit and I doubt that any of the people involved have any advanced degrees in physics or have ever taken a graduate Quantum Mechanics course in their lives. Applying rigorous physics to this philosophical miasma is like trying to construct a house out of a cloud.

    How does the way a particle behaves when no one is watching prove that there is an afterlife? How does the whole “if your neurons were messed with the sky would be a different color” prove that there is an afterlife? Seems like a bunch of nonsense

    Just pay for ignorance and speculation.

    Sounds like he was watching to much Lost. This fits into Buddhist theology, but not science. Regardless, I still believe there is an afterlife.

    What a load of bullsh!t. This article made my quantum consciousness grow a heisenberg pimple, and it hurts real bad. Seems like there is a strong quantum entanglement between the bi||sh!ter’s brain and his a$s. Just using words from scientific literature randomly to make up sentences that absolutely make no scientific sense, does not make them true. This is a whole new level of pseudoscientific hocus-pocus. Lanza is a medical doctor/biologist. He has no idea what cr@p he is talking about. He has a completely flawed understanding of quantum mechanics. But apparently that gives him the liberty to spew totally senseless and meaningless bu||sh!t.
