Where do we go when we die? Is there an afterlife? These are questions that everyone thinks about but are too afraid to really dive into. To some, the answer may be as simple as yes, we go to heaven when we die. Or possibly no, we are decomposed and become nothing more than worm food. But what if the answer isn’t that simple? What if our consciousness travels to another universe once we are pronounced dead? According to Dr. Robert Lanza, this is not far outside the realm of possibility.
Biocentrism is the theory that consciousness and life are fundamental to the universe and it is consciousness that creates the material universe and not the other way around. Biocentrism also implies that intelligence existed prior to matter due to the laws and forces of the universe itself and the fact that the universe appears to be fine-tuned for life. It is also believed that death of consciousness simply doesn’t exist and is only thought to because people identify themselves with their physical body.
Lanza is a firm believer of Biocentrism and claims that space and time are not objects or even things at that matter, but are made-up tools created to help assist our animal understanding. Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us like a snail does with it’s shell, meaning that when space and time are removed, we still exist. Are you following us? Think of it like this. If the body receives consciousness the same way that a cell phone receives a signal from a cell tower, then consciousness will not end at the death of the receiving object (or persons in this case.) Multiple universes are also believed to exist simultaneously, and in one universe, the body can be dead. If the physical body dies in one universe, the consciousness, in theory, can travel to a parallel universe and continue to exist. Although Lanza’s theory may sound like bullshit to some, he is not the only respected scientist who supports it.
So lets say that Lanza’s theory is correct and there are multiple universes that our consciousness or soul can travel to once our physical body dies, then a soul must exist, right? According to Dr. Stuart Hameroff, a near death experience or astral projection is proof that we carry on after death. Hameroff believes that near death experiences happen when the quantum information that inhabitats the nervous system exits the body and wonders off into the universe. Our souls are thought to be constructed from the very pieces of the universe and may have existed since the beginning of time (or whatever we choose to call it). Our brains are nothing more than receivers and amplifiers for the omega-consciousness that is intrinsic to the fabric of space and time.
Now that you know a bit about what Lanza and the theory of Biocentrism, what do you believe? Have you had an experience to convince you that we move on from our physical self after death? Please share any comments or thoughts in the comment section below.
