Dr. Robert Lanza, considered one of the leading scientists in the word...

(bio link below article excerpt)


Beyond time and space
Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company. Before he has been known for his extensive research which dealt with stem cells, he was also famous for several successful experiments on cloning endangered animal species.

But not so long ago, the scientist became involved with physics, quantum mechanics and astrophysics. This explosive mixture has given birth to the new theory of biocentrism, which the professor has been preaching ever since. Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are fundamental to the universe. It is consciousness that creates the material universe, not the other way around.

Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter. He also claims that space and time are not objects or things, but rather tools of our animal understanding. Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us “like turtles with shells.” meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist.

The theory implies that death of consciousness simply does not exist. It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with their body. They believe that the body is going to perish, sooner or later, thinking their consciousness will disappear too. If the body generates consciousness, then consciousness dies when the body dies. But if the body receives consciousness in the same way that a cable box receives satellite signals, then of course consciousness does not end at the death of the physical vehicle. In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local.

Dad's revenge photos! And to Dad! I can just bet that the kid's school bus mates couldn't wait to see what Dad would come up with each day.

I'd like to know how the cat got up there in the first place... kind of like a fence post turtle.

Smarter every day: Slo-mo flipping cats -- Why do cats land on their feet?

Precious, the semi-feral kitty spent the summer down the street in a wooded area

getting fed by some other neighbors.

As soon as the weather started getting cooler, Precious started coming back here. I guess we have some premium eats for cooler weather. As you can see, she looks great. All the flea bitten bits of fur have grown back and her coat is coming in slightly red again -- I guess it is her winter coat. She just needs a good bushing. She is still stand offish, but my DH was able to pet her the other day. I still have hopes for this kitty.

Palm trees wave, are you listenin'?

Tandem assignment: This is what happens...

BTW, I've done this type of assignment in class with middle schoolers and this story is just about exactly correct...
