Dr. Robert Lanza: Is Death An Illusion? Evidence Suggests Death Isn’t the End

Ultimate Reality
This post requires open-mindedness and the ability to think outside of the box . . . another perspective. It's not atheistic to believe there is an alternate view other than the Bible. There is an ultimate reality. It's perfectly okay if we call that reality  God.

Dr. Robert Lanza, head of Astellas Global Regenerative Medicine, Chief Scientific Officer of the Astellas Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and Adjunct Professor at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, “provides a compelling argument for consciousness as the basis for the universe, rather than consciousness simply being its by-product.”

Dr. Lanza seems to be given credit for some thinking that has been in the scientific communtity-particularly in the world of Quantum Physics-for quite a while. What is fairly new is the perspective that death is an illusion created by our consciousness. But the concept of illusions produced be the brain are not new. These views are profound, but as yet, are not accepted by most people.

Central to his perspective is biocentrism. It’s his ‘theory of everything.’ He just might be right. It basically means the ‘life centre’ and is the belief that life and biology are central to reality and that life creates the universe, not the other way round.

“According to biocentrism, space and time aren’t the hard, cold objects we think. Wave your hand through the air – if you take everything away, what’s left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together.” Therefore death and the idea of immortality exists in a world without space and time boundaries.

Lanza provides an example of what he means: “Consider the weather ‘outside’: You see a blue sky, but the cells in your brain could be changed so the sky looks green or red. In fact, with a little genetic engineering we could probably make everything that is red vibrate or make a noise, or even make you want to have sex like with some birds. You think its bright out, but your brain circuits could be changed so it looks dark out. You think it feels hot and humid, but to a tropical frog it would feel cold and dry. This logic applies to virtually everything. Bottom line: What you see could not be present without your consciousness.”

Our purpose in life is our evolution. It’s the process of making this a better world. Having an open-mind and being receptive to new ideas is a significant part of the evolutionary process. It will bring us where we want to go-a progression not regression-at least for me, and I hope for you.

Who knows. Someday we may even be able to walk on water.
