Death Is An Illusion

“The influences of the senses,” said Ralph Waldo Emerson “has in most men overpowered the mind to the degree that the walls of space and time have come to look solid, real and insurmountable; and to speak with levity of these limits in the world is the sign of insanity.”


We have posted here often about Biocentrism, Dr. Lanza’s fascinating theory of the universe and reality, and we are still very intrigued. But, if consciousness is everything, how is death explained using the ideas of Biocentrism? Won’t we cease to exist once our consciousness has passed away? The following article explains that there may in fact be no death of our consciousness whatsoever…and therefore no death at all.


Is Death An Illusion? Evidence Suggests Death Isn’t the End

“After the death of his old friend, Albert Einstein said “Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us … know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”


New evidence continues to suggest that Einstein was right – death is an illusion.


Our classical way of thinking is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence. But a long list of experiments shows just the opposite. We think life is just the activity of carbon and an admixture of molecules – we live awhile and then rot into the ground.


We believe in death because we’ve been taught we die. Also, of course, because we associate ourselves with our body and we know bodies die. End of story. But biocentrism – a new theory of everything – tells us death may not be the terminal event we think. Amazingly, if you add life and consciousness to the equation, you can explain some of the biggest puzzles of science…”

The Masked (and furry) Avengers

I was browsing National Geo’s Gallery of World Wonders for something to share here, and it was nearly impossible to decide which image to choose as an intro. Alas, after some consideration, this one won –


Hungary: Masked Avengers

“When the calendar turns to pre-Lent carnival season, one thing’s a given in the river town of Mohács in southern Hungary: The busók are coming. Not that anyone could miss them. Arriving by rowboat on the Danube and cloaked in shaggy pelts, carved wooden masks, ram’s horns, and the scraggly chops of a barbarian, some 500 men (and a few women) parade through town, bombarding the air with the jangle of cowbells…”

3,000 hours with toothpicks…

Here’s a mystery: How on earth did the artist find the patience to build this incredible thing?




“Artist Scott Weaver had worked on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity…”
