"Biomedical researcher Robert Lanza has been on the frontier of cloning and stem cell studies for more than a decade, so he's well-acclimated to controversy," writes Alan Boyle, MSNBC.com's Science Editor. "But his book "Biocentrism" is generating controversy on a different plane by arguing that our consciousness plays a central role in creating the cosmos. 'By treating space and time as physical things, science picks a completely wrong starting point for understanding the world,' Lanza declares. Any claim that space and time aren't cold, hard, physical things has to raise an eyebrow...Other physicists point out that Lanza's view is fully in line with the perspective from quantum mechanics that the observer plays a huge role in how reality is observed. 'So what Lanza says in this book is not new,' Richard Conn Henry, a physics and astronomy professor at Johns Hopkins University, said in a book review. 'Then why does Robert have to say it at all? It is because we, the physicists, do not say it - or if we do say it, we only whisper it, and in private - furiously blushing as we mouth the words. True, yes; politically correct, hell no!' ... Does all this make a difference in daily life, or how you see the world? Take a look at the free sample of 'Biocentrism.'"
