The Biocentric Universe Theory: Life Creates Time, Space, and the Cosmos Itself
Please read the whole article, I know it is a lot but please take the time and effort to do so. It is all important however I have bolded some parts which I have been trying to get across to people in other threads. Maybe people will realise now also that time itself as a force in our universe does not exist, it is merely a measurement of motion/change created by humans.

The farther we peer into space, the more we realize that the nature of the universe cannot be understood fully by inspecting spiral galaxies or watching distant supernovas. It lies deeper. It involves our very selves.

This insight snapped into focus one day while one of us (Lanza) was walking through the woods. Looking up, he saw a huge golden orb web spider tethered to the overhead boughs. There the creature sat on a single thread, reaching out across its web to detect the vibrations of a trapped insect struggling to escape. The spider surveyed its universe, but everything beyond that gossamer pinwheel was incomprehensible. The human observer seemed as far-off to the spider as telescopic objects seem to us. Yet there was something kindred: We humans, too, lie at the heart of a great web of space and time whose threads are connected according to laws that dwell in our minds.

Is the web possible without the spider? Are space and time physical objects that would continue to exist even if living creatures were removed from the scene?

Figuring out the nature of the real world has obsessed scientists and philosophers for millennia. Three hundred years ago, the Irish empiricist George Berkeley contributed a particularly prescient observation: The only thing we can perceive are our perceptions. In other words, consciousness is the matrix upon which the cosmos is apprehended. Color, sound, temperature, and the like exist only as perceptions in our head, not as absolute essences. In the broadest sense, we cannot be sure of an outside universe at all.

For centuries, scientists regarded Berkeley’s argument as a philosophical sideshow and continued to build physical models based on the assumption of a separate universe “out there” into which we have each individually arrived. These models presume the existence of one essential reality that prevails with us or without us. Yet since the 1920s, quantum physics experiments have routinely shown the opposite: Results do depend on whether anyone is observing. This is perhaps most vividly illustrated by the famous two-slit experiment. When someone watches a subatomic particle or a bit of light pass through the slits, the particle behaves like a bullet, passing through one hole or the other. But if no one observes the particle, it exhibits the behavior of a wave that can inhabit all possibilities—including somehow passing through both holes at the same time.

Some of the greatest physicists have described these results as so confounding they are impossible to comprehend fully, beyond the reach of metaphor, visualization, and language itself. But there is another interpretation that makes them sensible. Instead of assuming a reality that predates life and even creates it, we propose a biocentric picture of reality. From this point of view, life—particularly consciousness—creates the universe, and the universe could not exist without us.

MESSING WITH THE LIGHT
Quantum mechanics is the physicist’s most accurate model for describing the world of the atom. But it also makes some of the most persuasive arguments that conscious perception is integral to the workings of the universe. Quantum theory tells us that an unobserved small object (for instance, an electron or a photon—a particle of light) exists only in a blurry, unpredictable state, with no well-defined location or motion until the moment it is observed. This is Werner Heisenberg’s famous uncertainty principle. Physicists describe the phantom, not-yet-manifest condition as a wave function, a mathematical expression used to find the probability that a particle will appear in any given place. When a property of an electron suddenly switches from possibility to reality, some physicists say its wave function has collapsed.

What accomplishes this collapse? Messing with it. Hitting it with a bit of light in order to take its picture. Just looking at it does the job. Experiments suggest that mere knowledge in the experimenter’s mind is sufficient to collapse a wave function and convert possibility to reality. When particles are created as a pair—for instance, two electrons in a single atom that move or spin together—physicists call them entangled. Due to their intimate connection, entangled particles share a wave function. When we measure one particle and thus collapse its wave function, the other particle’s wave function instantaneously collapses too. If one photon is observed to have a vertical polarization (its waves all moving in one plane), the act of observation causes the other to instantly go from being an indefinite probability wave to an actual photon with the opposite, horizontal polarity—even if the two photons have since moved far from each other.

In 1997 University of Geneva physicist Nicolas Gisin sent two entangled photons zooming along optical fibers until they were seven miles apart. One photon then hit a two-way mirror where it had a choice: either bounce off or go through. Detectors recorded what it randomly did. But whatever action it took, its entangled twin always performed the complementary action. The communication between the two happened at least 10,000 times faster than the speed of light. It seems that quantum news travels instantaneously, limited by no external constraints—not even the speed of light. Since then, other researchers have duplicated and refined Gisin’s work. Today no one questions the immediate nature of this connectedness between bits of light or matter, or even entire clusters of atoms.

Before these experiments most physicists believed in an objective, independent universe. They still clung to the assumption that physical states exist in some absolute sense before they are measured.

All of this is now gone for keeps.


WRESTLING WITH GOLDILOCKS
The strangeness of quantum reality is far from the only argument against the old model of reality. There is also the matter of the fine-tuning of the cosmos. Many fundamental traits, forces, and physical constants—like the charge of the electron or the strength of gravity—make it appear as if everything about the physical state of the universe were tailor-made for life. Some researchers call this revelation the Goldilocks principle, because the cosmos is not “too this” or “too that” but rather “just right” for life.
+++

At the moment there are only four explanations for this mystery. The first two give us little to work with from a scientific perspective. One is simply to argue for incredible coincidence. Another is to say, “God did it,” which explains nothing even if it is true.

The third explanation invokes a concept called the anthropic principle,? first articulated by Cambridge astrophysicist Brandon Carter in 1973. This principle holds that we must find the right conditions for life in our universe, because if such life did not exist, we would not be here to find those conditions. Some cosmologists have tried to wed the anthropic principle with the recent theories that suggest our universe is just one of a vast multitude of universes, each with its own physical laws. Through sheer numbers, then, it would not be surprising that one of these universes would have the right qualities for life. But so far there is no direct evidence whatsoever for other universes.

The final option is biocentrism, which holds that the universe is created by life and not the other way around. This is an explanation for and extension of the participatory anthropic principle described by the physicist John Wheeler, a disciple of Einstein’s who coined the terms wormhole and black hole.

SEEKING SPACE AND TIME
Even the most fundamental elements of physical reality, space and time, strongly support a biocentric basis for the cosmos.

According to biocentrism, time does not exist independently of the life that notices it. The reality of time has long been questioned by an odd alliance of philosophers and physicists. The former argue that the past exists only as ideas in the mind, which themselves are neuroelectrical events occurring strictly in the present moment. Physicists, for their part, note that all of their working models, from Isaac Newton’s laws through quantum mechanics, do not actually describe the nature of time. The real point is that no actual entity of time is needed, nor does it play a role in any of their equations. When they speak of time, they inevitably describe it in terms of change. But change is not the same thing as time.

To measure anything’s position precisely, at any given instant, is to lock in on one static frame of its motion, as in the frame of a film. Conversely, as soon as you observe a movement, you cannot isolate a frame, because motion is the summation of many frames. Sharpness in one parameter induces blurriness in the other. Imagine that you are watching a film of an archery tournament. An archer shoots and the arrow flies. The camera follows the arrow’s trajectory from the archer’s bow toward the target. Suddenly the projector stops on a single frame of a stilled arrow. You stare at the image of an arrow in midflight. The pause in the film enables you to know the position of the arrow with great accuracy, but you have lost all information about its momentum. In that frame it is going nowhere; its path and velocity are no longer known. Such fuzziness brings us back to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, which describes how measuring the location of a subatomic particle inherently blurs its momentum and vice versa.

All of this makes perfect sense from a biocentric perspective. Everything we perceive is actively and repeatedly being reconstructed inside our heads in an organized whirl of information. Time in this sense can be defined as the summation of spatial states occurring inside the mind. So what is real? If the next mental image is different from the last, then it is different, period. We can award that change with the word time, but that does not mean there is an actual invisible matrix in which changes occur. That is just our own way of making sense of things. We watch our loved ones age and die and assume that an external entity called time is responsible for the crime.

There is a peculiar intangibility to space, as well. We cannot pick it up and bring it to the laboratory. Like time, space is neither physical nor fundamentally real in our view. Rather, it is a mode of interpretation and understanding. It is part of an animal’s mental software that molds sensations into multidimensional objects.

Most of us still think like Newton, regarding space as sort of a vast container that has no walls. But our notion of space is false. Shall we count the ways? 1. Distances between objects mutate depending on conditions like gravity and velocity, as described by Einstein’s relativity, so that there is no absolute distance between anything and anything else. 2. Empty space, as described by quantum mechanics, is in fact not empty but full of potential particles and fields. 3. Quantum theory even casts doubt on the notion that distant objects are truly separated, since entangled particles can act in unison even if separated by the width of a galaxy.

UNLOCKING THE CAGE
In daily life, space and time are harmless illusions. A problem arises only because, by treating these as fundamental and independent things, science picks a completely wrong starting point for investigations into the nature of reality. Most researchers still believe they can build from one side of nature, the physical, without the other side, the living. By inclination and training these scientists are obsessed with mathematical descriptions of the world. If only, after leaving work, they would look out with equal seriousness over a pond and watch the schools of minnows rise to the surface. The fish, the ducks, and the cormorants, paddling out beyond the pads and the cattails, are all part of the greater answer.

Recent quantum studies help illustrate what a new biocentric science would look like. Just months? ago, Nicolas Gisin announced a new twist on his entanglement experiment; in this case, he thinks the results could be visible to the naked eye. At the University of Vienna, Anton Zeilinger’s work with huge molecules called buckyballs pushes quantum reality closer to the macroscopic world. In an exciting extension of this work—proposed by Roger Penrose, the renowned Oxford physicist—not just light but a small mirror that reflects it becomes part of an entangled quantum system, one that is billions of times larger than a buckyball. If the proposed experiment ends up confirming Penrose’s idea, it would also confirm that quantum effects apply to human-scale objects.

Biocentrism should unlock the cages in which Western science has unwittingly confined itself. Allowing the observer into the equation should open new approaches to understanding cognition, from unraveling the nature of consciousness to developing thinking machines that experience the world the same way we do. Biocentrism should also provide stronger bases for solving problems associated with quantum physics and the Big Bang. Accepting space and time as forms of animal sense perception (that is, as biological), rather than as external physical objects, offers a new way of understanding everything from the microworld (for instance, the reason for strange results in the two-slit experiment) to the forces, constants, and laws that shape the universe. At a minimum, it should help halt such dead-end efforts as string theory.

Above all, biocentrism offers a more promising way to bring together all of physics, as scientists have been trying to do since Einstein’s unsuccessful unified field theories of eight decades ago. Until we recognize the essential role of biology, our attempts to truly unify the universe will remain a train to nowhere.

So many people are caught up in the distractions of our perceptions and the material world rarely anyone stops and thinks about the major issues of life itself and our existance. If thoughts and observations change our reality even in the slightest then by controlling the way people think and behave would control their realities and perhaps even the world. IE, MSM and everything mainstream and to do with the general masses.

Even if a part of this theory is true, then it will scare people for sure because it would show that everything that is going on is at least partly their fault. By existing you change the world, by observing something you change it. If a tree falls in the forest and nothing is there to hear it, does it make a sound? No.

If the world is what we make it then we have failed badly, because this is not a world I would be proud of. Too many people simply do not think for themselves but are happy to let religion, MSM, TV, music, radio, whatever digital communication, to do their thinking for them. They sit back and enjoy their materialistic life, looking to buy that next shiny car or that big screen plasma, only to further their distractions.

Good catch Xenus. This is so important it'll change consciousness. EVERYTHING we think has leaves an impression. If people fully understand this and take responsibility for their thoughts - WOW, and it must happen as it is our destiny. How we get there is our free will.

This also adds validity to Gary Renard's book, "The Disappearance of the Universe".

With this sort of knowledge comes great responsibility. If we create our own realities, what are we creating? Look at the world around you it is easy to see the world is becoming out of balance, with the knowledge that we have created this, how far are we to let the pendulum swing down, before we as a race accept responsibility for our actions and wake up to what we are creating.
We as one have the ability to change our future, from one of destruction to one of creation. This is what the mayans have tried to tell us and so many other prophecies. We can choose to see the patterns that show you the way reality is being shaped, or you can choose to ignore it, but ultimately it does affect everyone of us.
We live in a world shaped on lies, deceit, greed, jealousy etc all negative motions. To change the world all you need to do is change the way you live and think. Be truthful to yourself and others in what you do, this creates positive actions. Positive actions will move you forward, negative actions will keep you where you are and this will reflect in the problems you ineveitably will create yourself.

We all have the power to live in a balanced way, which in turn can change the world. what will you choose?

you know, this theory to me seems like it ties in with the law of oneness.

i'm a big believer that we are all connected somehow.

if life creates the universe, and consciousness creates life, then what creates consciousness. I think consciousness itself is the law of oneness and can't be created or destroyed. if you are religious, you could call this consciousness God. if you are atheist, you could call this consciousness the laws of the universe.

IMO, the results of the double slit experiment are a total game changer.

If the act of observing impacts the way that fundamental particles behave, then we need to start seriously considering the idea that our observation literally CREATES reality, which means that we are far more powerful than our keepers want us to believe that we are.

It's more like no matter how big our telescopes get or the more powerful our microscopes become we will always see SOMETHING.

The unfortunate thing is, we humans, did not come with a manual, so how do we know how to affect reality in such a way? Or some people might say that we know but just cannot remember. By simply existing you change the world already and your actions (or lack of) also act like ripples in a pond, changing reality and reacting. Is this all that we can do?

When we create we bring something out of nothing, and it is sad lately that the world seems to be lacking new and fresh ideas, creativity and creation in general, instead people just mix and mash shit together. Hollywood is the perfect example, just re-doing old movies, recycling old ideas.

I don't think that we are all one, but we are connected, like vertices on a giant spider web. I like my individuality and don't like the idea of being part of some hive mind/borg entity. But at the same time I do not enjoy the world we live in, to be frank it disgusts me, most humans are a disgrace.

thanks for answering my question about hubble.

I do agree with your statement I put in bold above.

It has always seemed to me that people from history were smarter than we are today. They had to come up with solutions to so many things to make life more bearable.

We have so much handed to us today that we take for granted that we have pretty much just stopped thinking.

I had a question I was asking everyone I knew a couple of years ago...

does no one ever have an original thought anymore? Something that no one else has ever thought of?

a friend said that's what the Novel prizes are for, to award original ideas.

I haven't been able to confirm that though.

People are too distracted with "life" and the majority don't even bother thinking for themselves, so therefore barely any new ideas emerge. The way our world has turned out, people are struggling to support themselves and live in general to spend time thinking about things like this, not only that but it is also easier to simply mash things together. Big companies like the record labels would rather spend money on something they know will sell to the masses and bring them profits rather than take a risk with an unknown band.

Real musicians are constantly having to create, not the prepackaged music you get in mainstream but metal and such. Originality in art is big also. All the great movies are original thoughts and creative creations. And books etc. There are still new ideas, I get them all the time, but unless you are in a position to use them they will never see the light of day. Our society no longer values originality and creativeness, but efficiency and profits.

 Quoting: Hallorann


Particles are not particles though.. they are 3D standing wave structures, so in essence everything is a wave. The whole paricle-wave duality idea is incredibly misleading. We see particles because we can not percieve the standing wave structures itself.. yet.

Observation creates reality, but not in the newage lightworker way. Every "particle" is created by every other "particle" in the Universe as a result of the continous stream of in/outgoing waves of other particles. This also means every "particle" is the centre of its own universe, and finally the idea of infinity becomes a bit more tangible to the layman.

Look up the "Standing Wave Structure of Matter". Many independant researchers came to the same conclusion, and by different methods! It solves so many problems in physics, and IMHO holds the key to many other mysteries, along with Teslas work of course hf

Re: The Biocentric Universe Theory: Life Creates Time, Space, and the Cosmos Itself
the wave particle duality experiments

is light a wave or a particle?

it seems that light behaves accordingly to the scientist's expectations of whether light is a wave or a particle

how much more matter behaves according to our expectations?

perhaps this was the secret to Tesla's experiments, his expectations produced results that others are unable to duplicate because of lack of expectation in the results

in other words, being the observer, and neutral, then neutral results are produced.

Re: The Biocentric Universe Theory: Life Creates Time, Space, and the Cosmos Itself
so how does this equate to creating our own reality/universe?

accepting things as they are just brings more of the same?

I recall the first time I heard Jimi Hendrix play the national anthem from woodstock...

none of us had ever heard anything like THAT! what a wonderous thing it was!

haven't heard anything really original since then. Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins kept saying that rock n roll is dead in the 90's

oh and by the way, I meant the NOBEL prizes, sorry typo.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 665033


You first need to understand what reality is, it is simply your peception of the world around you, you use your senses for data input and your brain translates this for you into meaningful information. But your mind can make things difficult with beliefs and pre existing notions and such, so there is heavy bias and each person has his/her own reality. Changing your reality is easy, but it is not the same as changing the world/universe.

But I think that you are asking how we can change the world, with our thoughts and actions. I think that is up to each person to decide, I have not yet found the answer for myself, but I am here on GLP sharing what I know and seeking more knowledge about things I want to know about, I suppose it is a start. Maybe we think that to create change you need an army, or weapons of mass destruction or to be powerful or to be in a position to influence people or have magic/mutant abilities. Maybe that is why, because we are made to feel helpless in a world filled with 6+ billion people. Maybe we can "evolve" or "mutate" and gain these abilities, maybe not, we don't know. But are you going to sit around and wait for something that may or may not happen before you act?

There is more to life than mindless fucking, pornography, TV, materialistic goods and all those distractions we create for ourselves and are surrounded by. It is the reason that, despite so many possibilities of distractions we have come up with, we still get bored.

As for the Nobel "peace" prize, it was invented by the same guy who created dynamite in order to make up for all the destruction he caused, he must have had a good PR person.

Great Article

Not often is there an article on this forum actually deserving of a pin for a day or two..

pin
"It was curious to think that the sky was the same for everybody, in Eurasia or Eastasia as well as here. And the people under the sky were also very much the same--everywhere, all over the world, hundreds or thousands of millions of people just like this, people ignorant of one another's existence, held apart by walls of hatred and lies, and yet almost exactly the same--people who had never learned to think but were storing up in their hearts and bellies and muscles the power that would one day overturn the world."
- George Orwell, 1984

okay, here's what I think about this.

I think we are all creating reality all the time, passively or actively, it doesn't matter which.

I think the key lies in whether you are aware of the reality you are creating and take accountability for it.

since the masses are only focusing on the material, then they are creating more of the same, consistent with creation of what we are observing (paying attention to)

PR would play a big part in this, ads, ads, more ads keep the majority wanting more things than they have and newer things than they own.

if the TPTB are REALLY aware that we create reality, then they could easily control the thoughts of those who are unaware and thus control the reality that the masses create.

However, if you are aware, or shall we call it awake to the fact that you are creating reality, then you are less easily controlled.

I find it fascinating that all religions ask you to become an observer and creator of reality through prayer, meditation, faith, mantras, ritual or magic.

finally science begins to confirm it. But it would take science a very long time to adjust the perception of those who create reality through their religious filters.

Creating who's reality? There is only one reality for every religion, their reality, conform to the way their rules tell you or else. Maybe originally religion was good and did help the world, but now it's decadent and ruined. There are many scientists who are religious also you know.

What does it really take to "create reality"? I must really suck at it because the world is still fucked up no matter how much I want a better world. We are missing something, because positive thoughts and prayer, meditation and all that do not change reality from my experiences. Maybe it takes a majority to want the same reality for it to happen, but I'm leaning to unlikey on this one, not impossible, nothing is really impossible. But it might explain why individuals can't "create reality" and there is such control over the media and such.

I read a very good book once by Terry Pratchett called "Gods", basically it dealt with a similar concept, only it was about the fact that when people stopped believing in a god, they cease to exist and disappear. It's fiction btw.

But it feels like we are lacking something or something is not quite right and we have lost the ability to create "reality". I forgot to mention that there appear to be different realities, personal reality and the universal reality. Each person perceives their surroundings differently and therefore have their own personal reality. But there is the overall reality of the universe/world. You can change your own personal reality but I am interested in working out if we can really affect the universal reality and how it can be done...
