Q&A with Bob Berman, author of Beyond Biocentrism

BeyondBiocentrism_FrontCover1. What is Beyond Biocentrism about?

It’s about understanding the universe. And our place in the cosmos. And the relationship between the living and the non living.

2. Why did you write it?

Because the field of cosmology is currently very muddy. Very few people are satisfied with science’s “official” model of reality, and Bob Lanza and I are quite sure this newer paradigm makes a lot more sense and is far more

3. You write that:

“Biocentrism isn’t a rejection of science. Rather, biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to quantum entanglement and

What are some of the latest scientific findings in the book and how can we apply them to our daily life?

The biggest scientific findings started 75 years ago with the revelations of quantum mechanics. Since then, newer discoveries such as particle entanglement, repeated experiments like the double slit, and mathematical advances that include those of John Bell in the 1960s, all paint a very different portrait of the cosmos than that of our current model which dates back the better part of a century. As soon as we realize how central the observer is to what is being perceived, we quickly lose the “little old me” viewpoint, and life takes on a new vibrancy.

4. What sort of reactions have you received from the book?

Well, you can view readers’ opinions in places like Amazon. There are always some who are not ready for a major overhaul of the established paradigms. But as you can see, the vast majority have been overwhelmingly positive and receptive.

5. What was one of the most surprising things you learned about yourself as you wrote the book?

I don’t think I learned anything about myself, except maybe that I should get up from my office desk and walk around a little every hour or two to relieve back strain. The conclusions of *Beyond Biocentrism* have been obvious to me for decades. But thanks for asking. I’d be far more interested in hearing how the book changes the outlooks of those for whom all these ideas are new.

6. Where can we get a copy?

It’s available wherever books are sold.
