Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe

By Robert Lanza, Bob Berman

Robert Lanza is among the Most worthy scientists within the world—a US information & international Report hide tale referred to as him a “genius” and a “renegade thinker,” even likening him to Einstein. Lanza has teamed with Bob Berman, the main broadly learn astronomer on the earth, to provide Biocentrism, a innovative new view of the universe.

Every from time to time an easy but radical inspiration shakes the very foundations of information. The startling discovery that the realm used to be no longer flat challenged and finally replaced the best way humans perceived themselves and their dating with the area. for many people of the fifteenth century, the suggestion of Earth as ball of rock used to be nonsense. the complete of Western, ordinary philosophy is present process a sea swap back, more and more being compelled upon us via the experimental findings of quantum conception, and even as, in the direction of doubt and uncertainty within the actual motives of the universe’s genesis and constitution. Biocentrism completes this shift in worldview, turning the planet the wrong way up back with the progressive view that existence creates the universe rather than the wrong way around.

In this paradigm, lifestyles isn't really an unintentional byproduct of the legislation of physics. Biocentrism takes the reader on a probably unbelievable yet finally inescapable trip via a overseas universe—our own—from the viewpoints of an acclaimed biologist and a number one astronomer. Switching point of view from physics to biology unlocks the cages during which Western technological know-how has unwittingly controlled to restrict itself. Biocentrism will shatter the reader’s principles of life—time and house, or even dying. even as it's going to free up us from the boring worldview of existence being purely the task of an admixture of carbon and some different parts; it indicates the exhilarating probability that lifestyles is essentially immortal.

The twenty first century is anticipated to be the Century of Biology, a shift from the former century ruled through physics. it sort of feels becoming, then, to start the century by means of turning the universe outside-in and unifying the principles of technological know-how with an easy thought stumbled on through one of many best life-scientists of our age. Biocentrism awakens in readers a brand new feel of probability, and is filled with such a lot of surprising new views that the reader won't ever see truth an analogous approach again.

Extra Dimensions in Space and Time (Multiversal Journeys)

By John Terning, Itzhak Bars

In physics, the belief of additional spatial dimensions originates from Nordstöm’s 5-dimensional vector conception in 1914, via Kaluza-Klein idea in 1921, with a purpose to unify common relativity and electromagnetism in a five dimensional space-time (4 dimensions for area and 1 for time). Kaluza–Klein idea didn’t generate sufficient curiosity with physicist for the subsequent 5 a long time, as a result of its issues of inconsistencies. With the arrival of supergravity concept (the thought that unifies normal relativity and supersymmetry theories) in past due 1970’s and finally, string theories (1980s) and M-theory (1990s), the size of space-time elevated to eleven (10-space and 1-time dimension).

There are major gains during this e-book that differentiates it from different books written approximately additional dimensions: the 1st characteristic is the insurance of additional dimensions in time (Two Time physics), which has now not been coated in previous books approximately additional dimensions. All different books typically conceal additional spatial dimensions. the second one function bargains with point of presentation. the cloth is gifted in a non-technical language by means of extra sections (in the shape of appendices or footnotes) that designate the fundamental equations and formulation within the theories. this option is particularly beautiful to readers who are looking to discover extra concerning the theories concerned past the elemental description for a layperson. The textual content is designed for scientifically literate non-specialists who need to know the newest discoveries in theoretical physics in a non-technical language. Readers with easy undergraduate history in smooth physics and quantum mechanics can simply comprehend the technical sections.

Part I begins with an summary of the normal version of debris and forces, notions of Einstein’s precise and common relativity, and the general view of the universe from the massive Bang to the current epoch, and covers Two-Time physics. 2T-physics has labored properly in any respect scales of physics, either macroscopic and microscopic, for which there's experimental info up to now. as well as revealing hidden info even in commonplace "everyday" physics, it additionally makes testable predictions in lesser recognized physics regimes that may be analyzed on the strength scales of the big Hadron Collider at CERN or in cosmological observations."

Part II of the ebook is targeted on additional dimensions of house. It covers the next issues: the preferred View of additional Dimensions, Einstein and the Fourth measurement, conventional additional Dimensions, Einstein's Gravity, the idea previously referred to as String, Warped additional Dimensions, and the way will we search for additional Dimensions?
