All,

I almost hesitate to post this. It's obvious nonsense but a good example of 
how science can be wildly misinterpeted. But on the other hand some people 
on this group will no doubt take it seriously since it is compatible with 
some of the other MWI fantasies advocated here. Will be interesting to see 
how the discussion goes! Edgar



Beyond time and space
Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of
Advanced Cell Technology Company. Before he has been known for his
extensive research which dealt with stem cells, he was also famous for
several successful experiments on cloning endangered animal species.

But not so long ago, the scientist became involved with physics,
quantum mechanics and astrophysics. This explosive mixture has given
birth to the new theory of biocentrism, which the professor has been
preaching ever since.  Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness
are fundamental to the universe.  It is consciousness that creates the
material universe, not the other way around.

Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the
laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned
for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter.  He also
claims that space and time are not objects or things, but rather tools
of our animal understanding.  Lanza says that we carry space and time
around with us “like turtles with shells.” meaning that when the shell
comes off (space and time), we still exist.

The theory implies that death of consciousness simply does not exist.
It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with
their body. They believe that the body is going to perish, sooner or
later, thinking their consciousness will disappear too.  If the body
generates consciousness, then consciousness dies when the body dies.
But if the body receives consciousness in the same way that a cable
box receives satellite signals, then of course consciousness does not
end at the death of the physical vehicle. In fact, consciousness
exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be
anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is
non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local.

Lanza also believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously.
In one universe, the body can be dead. And in another it continues to
exist, absorbing consciousness which migrated into this universe.
This means that a dead person while traveling through the same tunnel
ends up not in hell or in heaven, but in a similar world he or she
once inhabited, but this time alive. And so on, infinitely.  It’s
almost like a cosmic Russian doll afterlife effect.

Multiple worlds
This hope-instilling, but extremely controversial theory by Lanza has
many unwitting supporters, not just mere mortals who want to live
forever, but also some well-known scientists. These are the physicists
and astrophysicists who tend to agree with existence of parallel
worlds and who suggest the possibility of multiple universes.
Multiverse (multi-universe) is a so-called scientific concept, which
they defend. They believe that no physical laws exist which would
prohibit the existence of parallel worlds.

The first one was a science fiction writer H.G. Wells who proclaimed
in 1895 in his story “The Door in the Wall”.  And after 62 years, this
idea was developed by Dr. Hugh Everett in his graduate thesis at the
Princeton University. It basically posits that at any given moment the
universe divides into countless similar instances. And the next
moment, these “newborn” universes split in a similar fashion. In some
of these worlds you may be present: reading this article in one
universe, or watching TV in another.

The triggering factor for these multiplyingworlds is our actions,
explained Everett. If we make some choices, instantly one universe
splits into two with different versions of outcomes.

In the 1980s, Andrei Linde, scientist from the Lebedev’s Institute of
physics, developed the theory of multiple universes. He is now a
professor at Stanford University.  Linde explained: Space consists of
many inflating spheres, which give rise to similar spheres, and those,
in turn, produce spheres in even greater numbers, and so on to
infinity. In the universe, they are spaced apart. They are not aware
of each other’s existence. But they represent parts of the same
physical universe.

The fact that our universe is not alone is supported by data received
from the Planck space telescope. Using the data, scientists have
created the most accurate map of the microwave background, the
so-called cosmic relic background radiation, which has remained since
the inception of our universe. They also found that the universe has a
lot of dark recesses represented by some holes and extensive gaps.

Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton from the North Carolina
University with her colleagues argue: the anomalies of the microwave
background exist due to the fact that our universe is influenced by
other universes existing nearby. And holes and gaps are a direct
result of attacks on us by neighboring universes.

Soul
So, there is abundance of places or other universes where our soul
could migrate after death, according to the theory of neo-biocentrism.
But does the soul exist?  Is there any scientific theory of
consciousness that could accommodate such a claim?  According to Dr.
Stuart Hameroff, a near-death experience happens when the quantum
information that inhabits the nervous system leaves the body and
dissipates into the universe.  Contrary to materialistic accounts of
consciousness, Dr. Hameroff offers an alternative explanation of
consciousness that can perhaps appeal to both the rational scientific
mind and personal intuitions.

Consciousness resides, according to Stuart and British physicist Sir
Roger Penrose, in the microtubules of the brain cells, which are the
primary sites of quantum processing.  Upon death, this information is
released from your body, meaning that your consciousness goes with it.
They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of
quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they
dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).

Consciousness, or at least proto-consciousness is theorized by them to
be a fundamental property of the universe, present even at the first
moment of the universe during the Big Bang. “In one such scheme
proto-conscious experience is a basic property of physical reality
accessible to a quantum process associated with brain activity.”

Our souls are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe
– and may have existed since the beginning of time.  Our brains are
just receivers and amplifiers for the proto-consciousness that is
intrinsic to the fabric of space-time. So is there really a part of
your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the
death of your physical body?

Dr Hameroff told the Science Channel’s Through the Wormhole
documentary: “Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops
flowing, the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum
information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be
destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at
large”.  Robert Lanza would add here that not only does it exist in
the universe, it exists perhaps in another universe.

If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can
go back into the microtubules and the patient says “I had a near death
experience”‘

He adds: “If they’re not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible
that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps
indefinitely, as a soul.”

This account of quantum consciousness explains things like near-death
experiences, astral projection, out of body experiences, and even
reincarnation without needing to appeal to religious ideology.  The
energy of your consciousness potentially gets recycled back into a
different body at some point, and in the mean time it exists outside
of the physical body on some other level of reality, and possibly in
another universe.
