Biocentrism, as articulated by Robert Lanza, is a theory that suggests the universe and reality itself are dependent on consciousness, particularly human consciousness. Lanza, a prominent stem cell biologist and researcher, proposes that life and biology are central to being, reality, and the cosmos.

According to Lanza’s biocentric theory, life creates the universe, not the other way around. He argues that without consciousness to observe it, the universe would not exist in its current form. In essence, consciousness is not just a product of the universe, but rather the foundation upon which the universe exists. This perspective challenges traditional views in physics and cosmology that posit a universe existing independently of conscious observation.

Lanza’s biocentric theory has generated both interest and skepticism within the scientific community and beyond, as it raises profound questions about the nature of reality, the role of consciousness, and the interconnectedness of life and the cosmos.
