Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are. A great example of quantum physics meeting ancient wisdom is seen in the fact that Nikola Tesla was influenced by Vedic philosophy when pondering his ideas of zero point energy. So why is this relevant? The way we think and perceive could be responsible and play a vital role in the physical construct we see in front of us.
If we look at the world and examine it on a collective level, what do we see? How do we perceive it? No judgement here, but many people on the planet are not resonating with this experience. To not question what is happening in our world and to continue on with the status quo, only caring for ourselves and our own lives. As Noam Chomsky would say, our consent has been manufactured. In order to create and manifest a new reality for ourselves, our thought patters and the way we perceive reality must change.
What changes the way we perceive reality? When new information emerges it changes the way we look at things and as a result, our reality changes, and we begin to manifest a new experience and open our minds to a broader view of reality. It starts with the way in which we are observing the outer world from our inner world. This touches on the earlier point of how we perceive our reality. Our perception of the external world might very well be a reflection of our inner world, our inner state of being.
So ask yourself, are you happy? Are you observing, perceiving and acting from a place of love?
From a place of hate or anger? From a place of peace? We are indeed the observers, can we create change and break patterns to open up new possibilities, change our direction, all through the way in which we observe ourselves, others and the world around us. I believe that the human race is in the process of waking up to a number of different things, simultaneously.
So if you want to help change the world, change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change. All that remains is more and more precise measurement. This statement worldview statement was by Lord Kelvin in , which was shattered only five years later when Einstein published his paper on special relativity. The new theories proposed by Einstein challenged the current at that time framework of understanding.
This forced the scientific community to open up to an alternate view of the true nature of our reality.
Reception to Biocentrism by Scientists & Scholars
A great example of how things that once were regarded as truth have changed. Are we really any different today? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked. A group of internationally recognized scientists have come together to stress the importance of what is still commonly overlooked in the mainstream scientific community — the fact that matter protons, electrons, photons, anything that has a mass is not the only reality.
Just to reiterate, at the turn of the nineteenth century, physicists started to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. In doing so, the belief that a physical, Newtonian material universe that was at the very heart of scientific knowing was dropped, and the realization that matter is nothing but an illusion replaced it.
Scientists began to recognize that everything in the Universe is made out of energy. This has been known in the scientific community for more than one hundred years. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulating consciousness. We are talking about what is known as post-materialist science, and the points made below summarize the problem with not recognizing, acknowledging, and examining phenomena that go past the borders of the physical material world.
These points were co-authored by: It was presented at an international summit on post-materialist science, spirituality, and society. They and hundreds of other scientists have come to the following conclusions:. The modern scientific worldview is predominantly predicated on assumptions that are closely associated with classical physics. Materialism—the idea that matter is the only reality—is one of these assumptions. A related assumption is reductionism, the notion that complex things can be understood by reducing them to the interactions of their parts, or to simpler or more fundamental things such as tiny material particles.
The ideology of scientific materialism became dominant in academia during the 20th century. So dominant that a majority of scientists started to believe that it was based on established empirical evidence, and represented the only rational view of the world. Scientific methods based upon materialistic philosophy have been highly successful in not only increasing our understanding of nature but also in bringing greater control and freedom through advances in technology. However, the nearly absolute dominance of materialism in the academic world has seriously constricted the sciences and hampered the development of the scientific study of mind and spirituality.
Faith in this ideology, as an exclusive explanatory framework for reality, has compelled scientists to neglect the subjective dimension of human experience. This has led to a severely distorted and impoverished understanding of ourselves and our place in nature. Science is first and foremost a non-dogmatic, open-minded method of acquiring knowledge about nature through the observation, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.
Its methodology is not synonymous with materialism and should not be committed to any particular beliefs, dogmas, or ideologies. At the end of the nineteenth century, physicists discovered empirical phenomena that could not be explained by classical physics. This led to the development, during the s and early s, of a revolutionary new branch of physics called quantum mechanics QM.

QM has questioned the material foundations of the world by showing that atoms and subatomic particles are not really solid objects—they do not exist with certainty at definite spatial locations and definite times. Most importantly, QM explicitly introduced the mind into its basic conceptual structure since it was found that particles being observed and the observer—the physicist and the method used for observation—are linked. According to one interpretation of QM, this phenomenon implies that the consciousness of the observer is vital to the existence of the physical events being observed, and that mental events can affect the physical world.
The results of recent experiments support this interpretation. These results suggest that the physical world is no longer the primary or sole component of reality, and that it cannot be fully understood without making reference to the mind. Psychological studies have shown that conscious mental activity can causally influence behavior, and that the explanatory and predictive value of agentic factors e.
Moreover, research in psychoneuroimmunology indicates that our thoughts and emotions can markedly affect the activity of the physiological systems e. In other respects, neuroimaging studies of emotional self-regulation, psychotherapy, and the placebo effect demonstrate that mental events significantly influence the activity of the brain. Furthermore, psi research demonstrates that we can mentally influence—at a distance—physical devices and living organisms including other human beings. Psi research also shows that distant minds may behave in ways that are nonlocally correlated, i.
These events are so common that they cannot be viewed as anomalous nor as exceptions to natural laws, but as indications of the need for a broader explanatory framework that cannot be predicated exclusively on materialism. Some near-death experiencers NDErs have reported veridical out-of-body perceptions i. It is noteworthy that the electrical activity of the brain ceases within a few seconds following a cardiac arrest.
Controlled laboratory experiments have documented that skilled research mediums people who claim that they can communicate with the minds of people who have physically died can sometimes obtain highly accurate information about deceased individuals. This further supports the conclusion that mind can exist separate from the brain. Some materialistically inclined scientists and philosophers refuse to acknowledge these phenomena because they are not consistent with their exclusive conception of the world.
Rejection of post-materialist investigation of nature or refusal to publish strong science findings supporting a post-materialist framework are antithetical to the true spirit of scientific inquiry, which is that empirical data must always be adequately dealt with. Data which do not fit favored theories and beliefs cannot be dismissed a priori. Such dismissal is the realm of ideology, not science. It is important to realize that psi phenomena, NDEs in cardiac arrest, and replicable evidence from credible research mediums, appear anomalous only when seen through the lens of materialism.
Moreover, materialist theories fail to elucidate how brain could generate the mind, and they are unable to account for the empirical evidence alluded to in this manifesto. This failure tells us that it is now time to free ourselves from the shackles and blinders of the old materialist ideology, to enlarge our concept of the natural world, and to embrace a post-materialist paradigm.
Mind is fundamental in the universe, i. Since the mind may nonlocally influence the physical world, the intentions, emotions, and desires of an experimenter may not be completely isolated from experimental outcomes, even in controlled and blinded experimental designs.

NDEs occurring in cardiac arrest, coupled with evidence from research mediums, further suggest the survival of consciousness, following bodily death, and the existence of other levels of reality that are non-physical. Post-materialist science does not reject the empirical observations and great value of scientific achievements realized up until now.
It seeks to expand the human capacity to better understand the wonders of nature, and in the process rediscover the importance of mind and spirit as being part of the core fabric of the universe. Post-materialism is inclusive of matter, which is seen as a basic constituent of the universe. The post-materialist paradigm has far-reaching implications. It fundamentally alters the vision we have of ourselves, giving us back our dignity and power, as humans and as scientists. This paradigm fosters positive values such as compassion, respect, and peace.
By emphasizing a deep connection between ourselves and nature at large, the post-materialist paradigm also promotes environmental awareness and the preservation of our biosphere.
In addition, it is not new, but only forgotten for four hundred years, that a lived transmaterial understanding may be the cornerstone of health and wellness, as it has been held and preserved in ancient mind-body-spirit practices, religious traditions, and contemplative approaches.
The shift from materialist science to post-materialist science may be of vital importance to the evolution of the human civilization.

It may be even more pivotal than the transition from geocentrism to heliocentrism. International Summit on Post-Materialist Science: We interviewed Franco DeNicola about what is happening with the shift in consciousness. It turned out to be one of the deepest and most important information we pulled out within an interview. We explored why things are moving a little more slowly with the shift at times, what is stopping certain solutions from coming forward and the important role we all play. A new process is able to effectively turn sunlight into fuel by combining natural processes and human made technologies.
With all of the emerging alternative energy sources that are becoming available to us, do we really need to be burning fossil fuels any longer? The sun is a big burning ball of fire and thus, energy. Really, everything is energy. We already know that it is the light and warmth of the sun that gives life to every living thing on this planet. Yes fuel — the type of fuel that could directly compete with fossil fuels. The researchers used semi-artificial photosynthesis to explore new ways to produce and store solar energy.
Using natural sunlight to separate hydrogen and oxygen including the use of a combination of biological components and human made technologies. This research could revolutionize the way we are currently utilizing the sun for renewable energy production. Their method was able to absorb even more solar light than the natural process of photosynthesis. A paper , published in the journal Nature Energy described how the researchers were able to develop this process of unassisted, solar driven water splitting.
One of the authors of the study and PhD student at St. One of the keys to this process is an ancient enzyme known as hydrogenase. The process of mimicking photosynthesis in order to collect and store energy is something that scientists have been experimenting with for years. The team took the approach to create an electrochemical cell, similar to a traditional battery, but based on the light-collecting biochemistry of a process called photosystem II.
