Book Review: Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe by Robert Lanza and Bob Berman

by Colin Gonsalves

Robert Lanza’s concept of Biocentrism is as profound as Copernicus’ heliocentric model was in the 1400s. Lanza postulates that it is life that creates the universe instead of the other way around. He asserts that current theories of the physical world do not work, and can never be made to work, unless you include consciousness (the observer) in the equation. He admits that his theory doesn’t provide all the answers but should serve as a launching pad for future research to explain the inner workings of universe. This topic though difficult for most to comprehend if you are new to this subject is very well written. Lanza’s concept of Biocentrism compared to other theories comes closest to what spiritual masters already know. This is a much better book compared to Stephen Hawking’s ‘The Grand Design’ which I have to admit I didn’t finish due to its extremely dry writing.

Kill the Interpreter

by Denise VanVliet

Imagine the scene: You’re giving a lecture or workshop and you are already nervous. You have thoughts of ‘what if I fail?’ ‘What if I suck?’ ‘What if I forget something?’ ‘What if I look stupid?’ You get over your nerves and you get up and begin the lecture. You start off rocky but it begins to smooth out. You’re on a roll! Everything is going smoothly. Then, without warning, someone just gets up and leaves the room. Your thoughts start racing. ‘What did I say?’ ‘They don’t like my presentation.’ ‘I suck!’ As these thoughts start racing through your head, you begin to sweat and your heart starts racing. You begin to suffer. Read More...

How Did I Get Here, the four part series

by Frank Dobner

How Did I Get Here
Part 1 Fear and the Physical World

Probably the greatest unanswered question for many people, is “how did I get here, really.”  Or stated differently, “how could God have created such an imperfect world and peopled it with imperfect people and then put me in the middle of it?” The second most difficult answer to obtain is “why am I here?” And probably the question you don’t ask yourself is “where is it that I think I am?”

You could probably fill a whole encyclopedia with all of the world’s creations myths (like the book of Genesis from the Bible, as one of them) and spend your life trying to read them until you understood the answers well enough and then you could intellectually explain them to someone else. But it will likely never change your experience in this life because the answer to the question is, that the questions are wrong. I have participated in lengthy discussions with some very intelligent people on the subject of first creation and it goes nowhere because it is an intellectual discussion.
