WORCESTER, Mass., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Huffington Post -- 'The Internet Newspaper' -- featured today Dr. Robert Lanza's new book (co-authored with astronomer Bob Berman) "Biocentrism." The article by ACT's Lanza explains how life is the key to understanding the universe. The Huffington Post is ranked the most powerful (and most widely referenced) blog in the world. It reaches over 20 million thought-leaders, and has featured celebrity contributors from politics to business and entertainment, including President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Maher.
"Five hundred years ago people used to think the earth was flat. Evidence to the contrary was dismissed as absurd: 'If the world was really a ball of rock,' some claimed 'people at the bottom would fall off.' And before Galileo, it seemed stupid to think that we were whirling around the sun at 67 thousand miles per hour. It would have blown the hair off our head, right? Once again, puzzles of science -- and a string of new scientific experiments -- are forcing a rethink of the world that goes far beyond anything people think is possible. Biocentrism explains how life is not a mere accident of physics, but rather is essential to the existence of the universe. By treating space and time as hard, cold physical objects, rather than as tools of the mind, we pick a completely wrong starting point for understanding the world.
"Biocentrism unlocks the cage we have unwittingly confined ourselves. A new paradigm is usually dismissed as nonsense from within the existing paradigm. But allowing the observer into the equation opens new approaches to understanding everything from the tiny world of the atom to our views of life and death. Above all, biocentrism offers a more promising way to bring together all of science as scientists have been attempting to do ever since Einstein's 'unified field' theories of eight decades ago.
