I just read a fascinating article on Biocentrism which suggests that death doesn’t exist – at all. It is merely an idea, an adaptation of our conscious minds in an attempt to define life – place it neatly in a box so to speak. I will paraphrase some of the article here, and will include some direct quotes, but encourage you to go research it yourself.
The author is Dr. Robert Lanza, well versed in many fields including regenerative medicine, physics, quantum mechanics, and astrophysics. His book is titled: “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe“ It struck a powerful chord with me as I have danced around this very idea in multiple posts on this blog such as: The Second Time Around.
His view of this is that our consciousness creates the material world around us as opposed to the material world always being as it is with us being born into it; we create our own world from the energy of our consciousness. So accepting this, it becomes absolutely reasonable to accept that death is just a means of reconciling the end of the moment. Said elsewise, being thinking beings we attempt to define our existence by bounding it with a beginning and an end: birth and death.
But in his view Dr. Lanza sees our timeline as our consciousness, the energy of our mind, developing a world in which to exist and we fabricate all around us and everything in it, sharing with others whose mind energies have ended up in the same quantum dimension as us. And when the connection between our mind and the body we have been residing in is broken, either by the passage of time or a shift in the quantum dimension planes, we reconcile that moment internally as “death”.
But of course, the law of conservation of energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it can only be transformed or transferred from one form to another. So when the connection between our minds and bodies is broken, so is our connection to time and place; to everything material of that plane. Dr. Lanza states: “Indeed, biocentrism suggests it’s a manifold that leads to all physical possibilities. More and more physicists are beginning to accept the “many-worlds” interpretation of quantum physics, which states that there are an infinite number of universes. Everything that can possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death doesn’t exist in these scenarios since all of them exist simultaneously regardless of what happens in any of them. The ‘me’ feeling is just energy operating in the brain. But energy never dies; it cannot be destroyed.”
And while he does not discuss it in the article I just read (I have not read his book yet) it seems perfectly reasonable to then gain a deeper insight into reincarnation. We are not reincarnated in the generally considered way, as in born again into the same material world. Rather, we are reincarnated in the sense that our mind – our energy – remains intact and contiguous through the worlds our consciousness creates. Memories are energy after all and therefore must linger within the energy of our minds as we transition from one quantum plane to another so it is not surprising that we recall past times and places in which we had previously created for ourselves.
A little conundrum for you to ponder on this July Sunday dear reader! Stay well!!
