Are you afraid of death? This terrible phobia in scientific language sounds like thanatophobia and, to some extent, is found, perhaps, in every person. Perhaps death is the greatest mystery for humanity, because no one has yet been able to find out what happens after it occurs.
However, there are many different theories on the topic of death, and the author of one of the most interesting is the American scientist Robert Lanza. In his opinion, death does not really exist - people invented it themselves.
The theory may seem to some to be the delirium of a madman, but Robert Lanz cannot be called such. During his life, the 63-year-old scientist made a huge contribution to the study of stem cells used for organ repair. He is also the author of numerous books in which he even touches on the topic of cloning. For his merits, he was even awarded a place in TIME magazine's ranking of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Does death exist?
In 2007, the scientist created the concept of the so-called biocentrism. We are all accustomed to believing that life originated from the existence of the universe, but the theory of Robert Lanz completely turns this idea around. In the term biocentrism, the scientist put the idea that we, living beings, are the center of everything that surrounds us - we even create time and the universe itself.
Death is no exception. According to Robert Lanz, death exists for us only because from early childhood we begin to identify ourselves with our body. After all, we all believe that after stopping the work of all our organs, the same terrible and unknown death will inevitably await us? But the scientist is sure that even with the inoperability of the body itself, the human mind continues to work and simply migrates to another world.
What happens after death?
Feels mysticism, doesn't it? However, the scientist substantiates his words with the rules of quantum mechanics, according to which in reality there are a huge number of options for the development of events. For example, if in one of the “realities” (or Universes, call it what you want) a person died falling off a cliff, then in some of the parallel worlds he will feel danger in time and avoid death. The consciousness that was inside the already dead body will smoothly transfer to another reality where the person is alive. In a word, human consciousness is immortal and exists outside of space and time.
Human consciousness is energy that does not disappear and cannot be destroyed. It can only move endlessly and change its shape, - explained Robert Lanza in one of his works.
