Biocentrism (theory of everything) from Greek: βίος, bios, “life”; and κέντρον, kentron, “center” — also known as the biocentric universe — is a theory proposed in 2007 by American scientist Robert Lanza, which sees biology as the central driving science in the universe, and an understanding of the other sciences as reliant on a deeper understanding of biology. Lanza believes that life and biology are central to being, reality, and the cosmos—consciousness creates the universe rather than the other way around. While physics is considered fundamental to the study of the universe, and chemistry fundamental to the study of life, Lanza claims that scientists will need to place biology before the other sciences to produce a "theory of everything". – From WIKIPEDIA   Read More

Stem cell pioneer Robert Lanza has been on the frontier of cloning and stem cells for more than a decade, so he’s well-acclimated to controversy. But his book “Biocentrism” is generating controversy on a different plane. Does all this make a difference in daily life, or how you see the world? Take a look at the free sample of “Biocentrism.”


“One of the finest & best current books I have read on the subject of human “consciousness.” Lanza is a genius of first magnitude … When they write the list of this Century’s most important books, you can bet the farm this title will be near the top.”
‒ Robert Steven Thomas TOP 500 REVIEWER,
