Beyond Biocentrism Robert Lanza

Just finished this for the second time. Really great challenging stuff.... Anyone got a view on it? Can everything really just be in the mind and Not "our there"? That time and space are just tool constructs of the mind? What do you think? This guy was voted one of Forbes most influential thinkers and is a stellar performer in his own specialist field of stem cell research...... anybody think he's on to something?

It's always made sense to me that the chances are low to be alive right at the edge of time. What are the odds I wonder, that I just happen to be alive and conscious now? I think he's right that time is a construct of the mind because I've heard other scientists talk about it, but I don't really understand it.

Thanks for the input Seawolf. I think you are right it is so far away to think we are here riding on an accident that the concept of Big Bang, expanding universe, death, the end is the most ridiculous possibility out there.........the problem with science is it is run by scientist who seem to have great difficulty in thinking outside of the box.......I think where he's (Robert Lanza) going is that in order for a mind to have a certain kind of experience it needs to build a linear time construct to get from one part of that experience to the end of it. That the mind maybe has access to all multiverse (everything that ever could happen) but imposes this restriction to make sense of individual parts.... a mechanism or tunnel that only experiences one multiverse at a time. In the book he is very convincing that we are believing in what scientist have discovered..... fine but these scientists are ingnoring huge gaps in their thinking just to keep their theories tidy...... e.g. The link between quantum and standard Physics or the fact that consciousness (unexplained by any scientist) plays such a pivotal role in quantum theory...... Linking back to a religious point...... the Buddha kind of describes his awakening in a way that (to me) he remove s the time construct and views everything everywhere... all his previous lives etc at the same time..... also google Indra's net... there something in it I think.
