Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Travel in a rocket at 99 percent the speed of light and you'll enjoy the Travel in a rocket at 99 percent the speed of light and you'll enjoy the consequential sevenfold time dilation: from your perspective nothing has changed; you have aged a decade in ten years' worth of travel. But upon returning to Earth you'd find that seventy years have passed and none of your old friends are still alive to greet you. (For the famous formula that lets you calculate the slowdown of time at any speed you care to consider, see the Lorentz transformation in Appendix 1.) Then the truth rather than the theory — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: The universe bursts into existence from life, not the other way around as we have The universe bursts into existence from life, not the other way around as we have been taught. For each life there is a universe, its own universe. We generate spheres of reality, individual bubbles of existence. Our planet is comprised of billions of spheres of reality, generated by each individual human and perhaps even by each animal. — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Two and a half thousand years later, Zeno's arrow paradox finally makes sense. The Eleatic Two and a half thousand years later, Zeno's arrow paradox finally makes sense. The Eleatic School of philosophy, which Zeno brilliantly defended, was right. So was Werner Heisenberg when he said, "A path comes into existence only when you observe it." There is neither time nor motion without life. Reality is not "there" with definite properties waiting to be discovered but actually comes into being depending upon the actions of the observer. — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Our science fails to recognize those special properties of life that make it fundamental to Our science fails to recognize those special properties of life that make it fundamental to material reality. This view of the world - biocentrism - revolves around the way a subjective experience, which we call consciousness, relates to a physical process. It is a vast mystery and one that I have pursued my entire life. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: number of ways things can happen is stupendous. The mind's potential lies beyond its own number of ways things can happen is stupendous. The mind's potential lies beyond its own comprehension. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: So for instance it becomes clear why space and time and even the properties of So for instance it becomes clear why space and time and even the properties of matter itself depend on the observer in consciousness. In fact when you take this point of view it even explains why the laws of the universe themselves are fine tuned for the existence of life. — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science - to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: if the Big Bang had been one-part-in-a-million more powerful, it would have rushed out too if the Big Bang had been one-part-in-a-million more powerful, it would have rushed out too fast for the galaxies and life to develop. If the strong nuclear force were decreased 2 percent, atomic nuclei wouldn't hold together, and plain-vanilla hydrogen would be the only kind of atom in the universe. If the gravitational force were decreased by a hair, stars (including the Sun) would not ignite. — Robert Lanza

They're not objects, they're not things, they go forever. Space and time are really tools of animal sense perception, the way we organize and construct information. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: We can believe and aver that there's a universe out there even if all living We can believe and aver that there's a universe out there even if all living creatures were nonexistent, but this idea is merely a thought and a thought requires a thinking organism. Without any organism, what if anything is really there? — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: I think the answer of course is that space and time are not these hard I think the answer of course is that space and time are not these hard external objects. Again we're, scientists have been building from one side of nature (physics) without considering the other side (life in consciousness). Neither side exists without the other. They cannot be divorced from one another or else there is no reality. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Eminent Princeton physicist John Wheeler has for years been insisting that when observing light from Eminent Princeton physicist John Wheeler has for years been insisting that when observing light from a distant quasar that's bent around a foreground galaxy so that it had the possibility of appearing on either side of that city of suns, we have effectively set up a quantum observation but on an enormously large scale. It means, he insists, that the measurements made on an incoming bit of light now determine the indeterminate path it took billions of years ago. The past is created in the present. This of course recalls the actual quantum experiments outlined in our earlier chapters, where an observation right now determines the path its twin took in the past. — Robert Lanza

As we evolve, we'll be able to construct other information systems that correspond to other realities, universes based on logic completely different from ours and not based on space and time. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: How does consciousness ever begin? How could that possibly occur? And is that question any How does consciousness ever begin? How could that possibly occur? And is that question any less enigmatic than trying to figure how it might arise at a later date? Is consciousness synonymous with everything? — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Name the colors, blind the eye" is an old Zen saying, illustrating that the intellect's Name the colors, blind the eye" is an old Zen saying, illustrating that the intellect's habitual ways of branding and labeling creates a terrible experiential loss by displacing the vibrant, living reality with a steady stream of labels. It is the same way with space, which is solely the conceptual mind's way of clearing its throat, of pausing between identified symbols. At any rate, the subjective truth of this is now supported by actual experiments (as we saw in the quantum theory chapters) that strongly suggest distance (space) has no reality whatsoever for entangled particles, no matter how great their apparent separation. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: The farther we peer into space, the more we realize that the nature of the 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. — Robert Lanza

People are going to look back at us and say, 'They used to cut people's legs off.' Then they'll just give an injection and the blood flow will be restored and the limb saved. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: The end result is that we have shown that special relativity does not require the The end result is that we have shown that special relativity does not require the concept of rigid, objective space to function; if we start with the presumption of a unified field, then it is enough to propose that disturbances in the field provide a self-consistent relationship between its various parts. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: This and other experiments prove that the brain makes its own decisions on a subconscious This and other experiments prove that the brain makes its own decisions on a subconscious level, and people only later feel that "they" have performed a conscious decision. It means that we go through life thinking that, unlike the blessedly autonomous operations of the heart and kidneys, a lever-pulling "me" is in charge of the brain's workings. Libet concluded that the sense of personal free will arises solely from a habitual retrospective perspective of the ongoing flow of brain events. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: As children we were bombarded by competing answers. Church says one thing, school another. Now As children we were bombarded by competing answers. Church says one thing, school another. Now as adults it's no surprise that if we discuss the nature of it all, we generally spout some combination of the two, depending on our individual inclination and mood. — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Time if the inner form of animal sense that animates events-the still frames-of the spatial Time if the inner form of animal sense that animates events-the still frames-of the spatial world. The mind animates the world like the motor and gears of a projector. Each weaves a series of still pictures-a series of spatial states-into an order, into the 'current' of life. Motion is created in our minds by running "film cells" together. Remember that everything you perceive-even this page-is actively, repeatedly, being constructed inside your head. It's happening to you right now. Your eyes cannot see through the wall of the cranium; all experience including visual experience is an organized whirl of information in your brain. If your mind could stop its "motor" for a moment, you'd get a freeze frame, just as the movie projector isolated the arrow in one position with no momentum. In fact, time can be defined as the inner summation of spatial states. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: When science tries to resolve its conflicts by adding and subtracting dimensions to the Universe When science tries to resolve its conflicts by adding and subtracting dimensions to the Universe like houses on a Monopoly board, we need to examine our dogmas. — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we'll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow. We've also created entire tubes of red blood cells from scratch in the laboratory. So there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: But perhaps we can grant that something happens when the thinking mind takes a vacation. But perhaps we can grant that something happens when the thinking mind takes a vacation. Absence of verbal thought or day-dreaming clearly doesn't mean torpor and vacuity. Rather, it's as if the seat of consciousness escapes from its jumpy, nervous, verbal isolation cell and takes residence in some other section of the theater, where the lights shine more brightly and where things feel more direct, more real. On what street is this theater found? Where are the sensations of life? — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: Perhaps, if science is clever enough to see, it will realize that religion may not Perhaps, if science is clever enough to see, it will realize that religion may not be too far off with its concrete imagery; and that relative to the supreme creator, we humans are much like the microorganisms we scrutinize under the microscope. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: When someone dismissively answers "Of course a tree makes a sound if no one's nearby," When someone dismissively answers "Of course a tree makes a sound if no one's nearby," they are merely demonstrating their inability to ponder an event nobody attended. They're finding it too difficult to take themselves out of the equation. They somehow continue to imagine themselves present when they are absent. — Robert Lanza

Space and time, not proteins and neurons, hold the answer to the problem of consciousness. When we consider the nerve impulses entering the brain, we realize that they are not woven together automatically, any more than the information is inside a computer. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: I think it's science and physics are just starting to learn from all these experiments. I think it's science and physics are just starting to learn from all these experiments. These experiments have been carried out hundreds and hundreds of times in all sorts of ways that no physicist really questions the end point. I think that these experiments are very clearly telling us that consciousness is limitless and the ultimate reality. — Robert Lanza
Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: As Emerson wrote in "Experience," an essay that confronted the facile positivism of his age: As Emerson wrote in "Experience," an essay that confronted the facile positivism of his age: "We have learned that we do not see directly, but mediately, and that we have no means of correcting these colored and distorting lenses which we are, or of computing the amount of their errors. Perhaps these subject-lenses have a creative power; perhaps there are no objects." George Berkeley, for whom the campus and town were named, came to a similar conclusion: "The only things we perceive," he would say, "are our perceptions. — Robert Lanza

Robert Lanza Sayings By Robert Lanza: In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering you can actually grow up entire organs, so as you suggest that sometime in the future you get in an auto accident and lose your kidney, we'd simply take a few skin cells and grow you up a new kidney. In fact this has already been done. — Robert Lanza
