Biocentrism can prove the existence of afterlife, claims scientist
London: An expert has claimed to have come up with definitive evidence that there is indeed life after death.
Professor Robert Lanza, from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina, said that the answer to this question lies in quantum physics, specifically the theory of biocentrism, the Independent reported.
He said that the proof lies in the idea that the concept of death is a mere figment of human`s consciousness.
Lanza said that biocentrism explains that the universe only exists because of an individual`s consciousness of it - essentially life and biology are central to reality, which in turn creates the universe; the universe itself does not create life.
In a message that he posted on his website, he said that with this theory in mind, the concept of death as humans know it "cannot exist in any real sense" as there are no true boundaries by which to define it.
He used a double-slit experiment as proof that a particle`s behaviour can be altered by a person`s perception of it.
In the experiment, when people watch a particle pass through a multi-holed barrier, the particle seems to be a bullet travelling through a single slit.
However, when the particle is not watched, it moves through the holes like a wave.
