Publisher's Summary

Biocentrism shocked the world with a radical rethinking of the nature of reality.

But that was just the beginning. In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People in 2014", and leading astronomer Bob Berman take the listener on an intellectual thrill ride as they reexamine everything we thought we knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself.

The first step is acknowledging that our existing model of reality is looking increasingly creaky in the face of recent scientific discoveries. Science tells us with some precision that the universe is 26.8 percent dark matter, 68.3 percent dark energy, and only 4.9 percent ordinary matter but must confess that it doesn't really know what dark matter is and knows even less about dark energy. Science is increasingly pointing toward an infinite universe but has no ability to explain what that really means. Concepts such as time, space, and even causality are increasingly being demonstrated as meaningless.

All of science is based on information passing through our consciousness, but science hasn't the foggiest idea what consciousness is, and it can't explain the linkage between subatomic states and observation by conscious observers. Science describes life as a random occurrence in a dead universe but has no real understanding of how life began or why the universe appears to be exquisitely designed for the emergence of life.

The biocentrism theory isn't a rejection of science. Quite the opposite. Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to quantum entanglement and consciousness.

By listening to what the science is telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are fundamental to any true understanding of the universe. This forces a fundamental rethinking of everything we thought we knew about life, death, and our place in the universe.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Life changing..."
    Would you listen to Beyond Biocentrism again? Why?

    Will definitely listen to this again... So much information to take in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Biocentrism?

    Too many to mention...


    What does Peter Ganim bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A good clear voice. He seemed to enjoy the book himself.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to mention...


    Any additional comments?

    Very little grounding in physics needed to get yourself into this. Just let the ideas wash over you the first time and then listen to the book again more attentively.

    This is a very important piece of work and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    Story
    "Thinly disguised woo-woo"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This account lacks any depth of argument and contains instead a sneering (and often wilfully misconstrued) account of standard physics. The authors seem dumbstruck by the fact that our internal reality of the world is constructed in the brain through neuronal interconnetions and massive filtering of non-useful information. They strangely draw the conclusion that this all of reality. I looked for any (persuasive) development of this argument but gave up. My only disappointing audiobook purchase to date.


    What will your next listen be?

    I don't know but can I strongly recommend Marcus de Sautoy's 'What we cannot know' which satisfying and intriguely addresses the issues of the relationship between external reality and human awareness and the limits of our knowledge. Also - for the relationship between quantum physics and consciousness - Al-Khalili and McFadden's 'Life on the edge'.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Ganim’s performances?

    no


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beyond Biocentrism?

    One of the authors gave an embarrassing personal account of being 'connected to everything'


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "An incredible synthesis"
    Would you listen to Beyond Biocentrism again? Why?

    Yes I have listened already 2 times and the book was JUST released.
    In fact I had just mentioned on a forum for Deepak Chopra's new book
    "You ar the Universe" that I was hoping that there would be a new book/audiobook from Robert Lanza the author, and then th next day this arrived!!

    What a powerful synchronicity!
    This book is quite similar to Dr Chopra's new book
    You are The Universe in fact.


    What other book might you compare Beyond Biocentrism to and why?

    Deepak Chopra's
    You are the Universe


    Any additional comments?

    So excited that Dr lanza decided to continue in the popular media

    "Not a science book"

    This is not a science book. I stopped reading this when the author mentioned conscious thoughts altering states in quantum mechanics. It takes 1h to read a paper on Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and understand what the principle entitles.

    I find it reprehensible when authors manipulate scientific theories to extrapolate into the realm of mysticism. Even disgusting because they know they're doing it.

    "Brilliance outside the box"

    I'm a physician and scientist. I loved every second of this book. I can't believe his critical thinking skills and ability to put so many fields together into one. There is also comic and wit and a great sense of humor.

    "A Huge "Thumbs Up"!!!!"

    Mortality, Science vs. Religion, cutting edge synthesis of the latest scientific research and progress in the study of consciousness. Provides science-backed information that to me at least make sense if it all. Even an attempt at a Theory of Everything, or Unified Theory in this read.

    "Plenty of Specious Reasoning"

    Massive assumptions and logical leaps without foundation. Quite disappointing as I'm a sympathetic listener who quite likes Spinoza and plenty of Buddhist philosophy.

    Performance is totally fine though. Can't shoot the messenger for the message he delivers.

    Way too much insignificant data! Which teaches the reader nothing. How all these names dates and detail are helpful I can't fathom.
