Biocentrism, also referred to as the biocentric universe, is a theory proposed by Robert Lanza, a renowned scientist from Boston, Massachusetts. In this theory, life and biology are the central pieces to being, reality, and the cosmos. The idea is that life creates the universe rather than the other way around.

The biocentric theory proposed by Robert Lanza builds on quantum physics. While physics is considered fundamental to the study of the universe and chemistry is fundamental to the study of life, biocentrism places biology before any other science to produce a theory of everything - a theory of the universe.

Robert Lanza explains that what we call space and time are forms of animal sense perception rather than external physical objects. Understanding this simple yet revolutionary idea more fully yields answers to several major puzzles of mainstream science. It offers a new way of understanding everything from the microworld to the forces, constants, and laws that shape the entire universe.

These ideas and theories are further developed in Lanza’s books Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe, published in 2009 and Beyond Biocentrism, set to be released in April of 2016.

According to a Discover magazine article adapted from Lanza’s book, “biocentrism offers a more promising way to bring together all of physics, as scientists have been trying to do since Einstein’s unsuccessful unified field theories of eight decades ago”.
