Personal (oh the irony) and profound

I suspect one would need to have done a fair bit of reading and thinking on science and perhaps Buddhism (or anything "spiritual" for that matter) to grasp what Lanza is trying to say. And when you do get it, there are simply no appropriate words that could describe the realization.

This really only serves to open the discussion - it is a short book that was originally published as an article. To really get a sense of Robert Lanza's work in this area, readers should check out Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.

Brief introduction to Lanza

This is a brief essay by Lanza that introduces a perspective on time and the human experience. Lanza is very adept at describing the tension between materialism and experience.
A different perspective from a learned man that introduces ideas by Kant, Newton, Einstein and Spinoza regarding humans, time and life.

An interesting take on immortality

An interesting take on immortality

This book was to short to do more than scratch the
surface of whether we are immortal or not but still worth
the purchase price.
