Publisher's Summary

What if life isn't just a part of the universe? What if it determines the very structure of the universe itself?

The theory that blew your mind in Biocentrism and Beyond Biocentrism is back, with brand-new research revealing the startling truth about our existence.

What is consciousness? Why are we here? Where did it all come from - the laws of nature, the stars, the universe? Humans have been asking these questions forever, but science hasn't succeeded in providing many answers - until now. In The Grand Biocentric Design, Robert Lanza, one of Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People", is joined by theoretical physicist Matej Pavšic and astronomer Bob Berman to shed light on the big picture that has long eluded philosophers and scientists alike. 

This engaging, mind-stretching exposition of how the history of physics has led us to biocentrism - the idea that life creates reality - takes listeners on a step-by-step adventure into the great science breakthroughs of the past centuries, from Newton to the weirdness of quantum theory, culminating in recent revelations that will challenge everything you think you know about our role in the universe.

This book offers the most complete explanation of the science behind biocentrism to date, delving into the origins of the memorable principles introduced in previous books in this series, as well as introducing new principles that complete the theory. The authors dive deep into topics including consciousness, time, and the evidence that our observations - or even knowledge in our minds - can affect how physical objects behave.

The Grand Biocentric Design is a one-of-a-kind, groundbreaking explanation of how the universe works and an exploration of the science behind the astounding fact that time, space, and reality itself all ultimately depend upon us. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

An unbelievable book linking modern physics to consciousness

I have an engineering background and have read dozens of books over the years on physics, engineering, philosophy and general science. I have not encountered one that has been able to connect all the dots and actually address both our origins and our current lives. The experiments referenced answer many of the questions that science tends to ignore and only metaphysics or new age address for us. I would highly recommend this. You will need a background in science to fully engage and understand the content. Although the authors keep the equations in the appendixes they do go into a lot of concepts that require previous reading.

Should be in the fiction section.

The author is not a physicist but comes across where he is an expert. Most of the book involves well known proven science. From the proven he goes into pseudo religion which is poorly explained and not convincing. He says it can be falsified to be an acceptable science theory but I am not convinced of any evidence. His theory is so mucked up he tries to brain wash you by repeating the same things over and over. He could have simplified the book to 5 pages of fiction. If people rate this book high they do not have a good background in physics and want to believe in his fantasy where you never die. Your quantum wave just shows up in another conscience being. The Q&A at the end is another confusing mess. You can see where most people don’t grasp his ideas. It might be ideas which are only relevant in his universe which his conscience has created.

Interesting ideas, sketchy science

The ideas about the role of consciousness are interesting. I agree with a lot of these ideas. But there's a certain amount of misrepresentation of how most physicists see the role of consciousness in quantum physics. This is done by quoting physicists' use of the term "observation" without clarifying that they don't usually mean observation by a conscious human being. Another problem is endorsing both the idea in quantum physics, of consciousness collapsing the wave function and the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics. The key idea of Many Worlds is that there is no collapse of the wave function. Despite some incoherence of the ideas when all put together as a system, I recommend the book. The ideas, individually, are thought-provoking. The narration is another matter. The narrator takes a snarky tone that I find annoying. I assumed that this snarkiness lay in the prose. But when the co-author, Lanza, lectures, there's no snarkiness at all. It comes from the narrator.

Provocative and Revelational

The necessity to include observational conscious awareness into the scientific method is convincingly argued throughout this book. Historically science has, and with good reason, hesitated to reform foundational critical thinking without due cause and evidentiary facts. The concepts of Biocentric theory outlined in this book convincingly postulate we need to take a much needed hard look at the reality we observe, and ultimatley create. The writing is clear and understandable to most well-educated readers. However, Biocentric theory should be distilled into more palatable passages for the average "joe" on the street to comprehend in order to make more people aware of truths they may already inherently know to be real.

Powerful, thought-provoking, and full of truth.

I really like this book a lot. It goes where many physicists don't want to go, and it brings to light many truths they don't want to confront with plenty of evidence to back up it's controversial theories. Very interesting information for further research. A full breakdown of a revolutionary new way of looking at reality. Sure to impress. I go through a lot of physics and theoretical physics books and so I basically already had the biocentric model worked out in my mind like many physicists do these days It's just where the evidence is leading... Highly recommended for everybody trying to understand the Universe through the lens of some of science's most counterintuitive discoveries. Great for the well versed in modern physics and those totally new to the subject alike. An instant classic

The authors present Biocentrism as a new religion

Narration was ok and the book comes with a PDF. Overall I perceived Lanza as a very egocentric scientist. The book presents an interesting set of views however it leaves many gaps and it is all arranged to present Biocentrism as the new religion of physics.

Made very clear for general public like me

Was so impressed read about him on Wikipedia and now I’m even more impressed! Thank you for making this difficult theory something even I can understand. Well Done!

Life-changing book, if you are open and ready

The book offers new ideas through latest scientific research. If you are stuck in old ideas regardless of evidence, this is book is not for you. But if you are open and willing to accept new possibilities, this will be a wonderful read leaving you excited and curious.
I read 'Beyond Biocentrism' by the same author first, which made it easier for me to understand.
Wonderful and life changing.
