Biocentrism

I came across a very interesting theory today, and it’s the physics theory of biocentrism, which is odd but actually makes sense!

So a physicist came up with this theory, which can basically explain what happens after death. So first, something to keep in mind is that every living thing experiences the world a little differently, for example, dogs can only see black and white and have an excellent sense of smell, cats cannot taste sugar but can taste ATP, and the mantis shrimp has the best eyesight in the entire animal kingdom.  So how we interpret everything around us (time and space) is based on our senses, and how we are interpreting our world is through our brain, alive because of an energy within us. And one of the most basic things that we know from physics is that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. This leads us to death. So if energy cannot be destroyed, then our energy technically still exists after death, but we no longer have a medium through which we can interact with the world. We will no longer be able to see, hear, feel, think… we won’t remember anything from our lives because we no longer have a brain to retrieve that information.

Another idea that comes into play then is the idea of parallel universes: we are only able to see our current universe because of our interpretation of time and space, but who knows if there might be more out there that we cannot see? Maybe after death, we will be free to go to another universe and start anew there. Anyway, I thought that it was a pretty neat theory so I just wanted to share it with everyone.

Whew~ bedtime for me. It’s starting to get reallyyyy hot in Taiwan though, and October (when it’ll finally cool down) feels so far away)… I need new clothes! Summer time!

  1. That’s an interesting perspective, especially the first one. It does make sense based on the principle of conservation of energy. We just sort of float around. Fascinating stuff, great post!
