Interesting............I wonder what my 'other selves' are doing right now in the other dimensions ?



Quantum physics proves that there IS an afterlife, claims scientist


Robert Lanza claims the theory of biocentrism says death is an illusion
He said life creates the universe, and not the other way round
This means space and time don't exist in the linear fashion we think it does
He uses the famous double-split experiment to illustrate his point
And if space and time aren't linear, then death can't exist in 'any real sense' either

Professor Robert Lanza claims the theory of biocentrism teaches that death as we know it is an illusion created by our consciousness.
Professor Robert Lanza claims the theory of biocentrism, also known as the theory of everything, teaches death as we know it is an illusion.
Professor Robert Lanza claims the theory of biocentrism teaches death as we know it is an illusion. He believes our consciousness creates the universe, and not the other way round, and once we accept that space and time are 'tools of our minds', death can't exist in 'any real sense' either


Lanza, from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina, continued that as humans we believe in death because 'we've been taught we die', or more specifically, our consciousness associates life with bodies and we know that bodies die.

It is the believe that life and biology are central to reality and that life creates the universe, not the other way round.


This suggests a person's consciousness determines the shape and size of objects in the universe.
Lanza uses the example of the way we perceive the world around us. A person sees a blue sky, and is told that the colour they are seeing is blue, but the cells in a person's brain could be changed to make the sky look green or red.


Our consciousness makes sense of the world, and can be altered to change this interpretation.
The universe is a construct of our minds, claims Lanza

In summary, space and time are 'simply tools of our mind.'



Theoretical physicists believe that there is infinite number of universes with different variations of people, and situations taking place, simultaneously.
Lanza added that everything which can possibly happen is occurring at some point across these multiverses and this means death can't exist in 'any real sense' either.
Lanza, instead, said that when we die our life becomes a 'perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse.'
'Bottom line: What you see could not be present without your consciousness,' explained Lanza. 'Our consciousness makes sense of the world.'


By looking at the universe from a biocentric's point of view, this also means space and time don't behave in the hard and fast ways our consciousness tell us it does. In summary, space and time are 'simply tools of our mind.'
Once this theory about space and time being mental constructs is accepted, it means death and the idea of immortality exist in a world without spatial or linear boundaries.
Similarly, theoretical physicists believe there is infinite number of universes with different variations of people, and situations, taking place simultaneously.
Lanza cites the double-slit experiment, pictured, to backup his claims.
When scientists watch a particle pass through two slits, the particle goes through one slit or the other. If a person doesn't watch it, it acts like a wave and can go through both slits simultaneously. This means its behaviour changes based on a person's perception

HOW THE DOUBLE-SLIT EXPERIMENT SUPPORTS LANZA'S THEORY
In the experiment, when scientists watch a particle pass through two slits in a barrier, the particle behaves like a bullet and goes through one slit or the other.
Yet if a person doesn't watch the particle, it acts like a wave.
This means it can go through both slits at the same time.
This demonstrates that matter and energy can display characteristics of both waves and particles, and that the behaviour of the particle changes based on a person's perception and consciousness.

He continued: 'Life is an adventure that transcends our ordinary linear way of thinking. When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix.'

Lanza's full theory is explained in his book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.

Re: The Official Science Thread

Inkjet printing finally makes its debut for mass producing OLED displays. TVs using the process should become available next year, and for much lower prices than they are currently.

I want.

This blew me away, particularly the sorting part.

What's da matter? You can't stand clicking your own link again?
I had to click on your link to see what the misspelling was.

You were gonna have to clicky to see them anyway. You made me waste 4.82 seconds of extra time clicking the link and scrolling down to see which ones you commented on, JUST so we could bond over shared humor and mock those that disagree with us. aintnobodygottimefodat

Regardless, the fact that you loled means the first phase of my plan for world domination is complete.

First put a sausage in your microwave. Remove the turning plate or at least disengage it from the dog clutch( the three triangles it locks into). So it wont turn.

Quote:
Should only take a few seconds until it begins to bubble. Don't over heat!

Quote:
Measure from the beginning of the first bubble to the end of the second. This is why it's important not to over heat you want to identify where the sausage is heated by microwaves NOT simply by being next to hot sausage. Mines 12.5cm from start of first left bubble to end of right bubble.

Quote:
Most will have it on the back of the device. Mine is 2.45GHz (almost all of them will be about this value) Now it's simply maths. 2.45GHz is 2.45x10^9Hz. 12.5cm is 0.125m. Speed = frequency x wavelength 2.45x10^9 * 0.125 = 306 250 000m/s The speed of light is 299 792 458 m/s You just calculated the speed of light to within 2.11% with a sausage at home.
