SPACE, time, matter and consciousness are omnipresent. But in science, a fundamental problem is created because they are considered independent things—a mistaken starting point for unlocking the nature of reality.
Their view is sustained because “most researchers still believe they can build from one side of nature, the physical, without the other side, the living,” writes Dr. Robert Lanza, in the May, 2009 book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the True N...
The One Life
Dr. Lanza is considered one of the leading scientists in the world. “Biocentrism” is his persuasive, and eloquently intuitive ‘theory of everything,’ and parallels what H. P. Blavatsky taught.
In her article The Life Principle, Blavatsky affirms that:
THE ONE LIFE–is deity itself, immutable, omnipresent, eternal. The distinction between organic and inorganic matter [is] fallacious and nonexistent in nature… matter in all its phases, [is] merely a vehicle for the manifestation through it, of LIFE.
The Secret of Life
Correlating with Dr. Lanza’s main idea, we offer again a foundational quote from The Secret Doctrine—reprinted from a previous post, Hanging by a Thread:
“…the whole secret of Life is in the unbroken series of its manifestations: whether in, or apart from, the physical body. Because if —
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance...
—yet it is itself part and parcel of that Eternity—for life alone can understand life.”
(Enjoy the song!): Both Sides Now
“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all.”
Continuing his thread of thought, Dr. Lanza wonders
: “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?” spiders-web
Answering, he says: “…consciousness is the matrix upon which the cosmos is apprehended. … In the broadest sense, we cannot be sure of an outside universe at all. …
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.“
When we understand, with Theosophy, that the universe and everything in it, are parts of a sentient, interdependent web of life, this changes everything. For emphasis, we turn again to Dr. Dean Radin’s description of:
