Each of us will sooner or later facedeath. But what happens at the moment of dying and after it? Throughout its history, humanity has been looking for answers to these questions. Christianity and other Abrahamic religions offer eternal life in heaven or hell, but Buddhism looks at the process of life and death somewhat differently, offering reincarnation. The gods of ancient Egypt, Scandinavian folklore, the myths of Ancient Greece - all these stories are somehow connected with death and attempts to cope with loss. But what if you look at death differently? What if death is not really the end, and your consciousness just loads and appears in another space-time?
Remember the 2014 film Edge of Tomorrow and1993 Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray? These films are similar, as the protagonists get stuck in a time loop and live the same day over and over and over and over again. The heroes of Murray and Cruz die many times, but they wake up again in the same place and at the same time. In fact, the time loop hypothesis is extremely popular among science fiction writers and screenwriters all over the world, so you can easily remember a dozen more similar films and stories.
But if you come to the story about groundhog day a littleon the other hand, the question of whether it may turn out that death does not actually exist does not sound so silly. Moreover, more and more questions arise - what if we just start life anew every time in a different space-time or return to that moment in time where death was avoided?
Robert Lanza is the CEO of Astellas GlobalRegenerative Medicine is an institute for regenerative medicine that develops stem cell therapies with a focus on diseases that cause blindness. Let me remind you that stem cells are precursors of all cells and tissuesthe human body. These cells are able to maintain their numbers through division and have the ability to "transform" into different types of cells. With age, the number of stem cells in the human body decreases.

According to the British Express.co, according to Dr. Lanz, death is not the end, but simply a quantum reboot that moves consciousness to another location in an alternate spacetime. The scientist believes that our consciousness simply creates what we perceive as the Universe, and without an individual, nothing exists at all.
The new theory also suggests that time andspaces cannot be measured, but are simply concepts created by our minds to help us store information. Moreover, Lanza is convinced that consciousness exists thanks to the energy that is contained in our bodies and is released as soon as physical bodies stop the process, which he calls "biocentrism." It is noteworthy that Lanza put forward this theory back in 2012. My colleague Ramis Ganiev wrote a fascinating article on this topic, I recommend reading it.
Biocentrism is an irregular ideology or scientific approach to environmental protection. The main thing in biocentrism is the interests of living nature in the form in which they appear to man.
Long Live Quantum Physics Albert Einstein
It is important to understand that when we talk about the theory of biocentrism, we are at the same time talking about Albert Einstein. It was he who first suggested what Lanz later voiced: when our physical bodies die, the energy of consciousness is conserved and can continue to exist at the quantum level. Remember the famous words of Albert Einstein:
Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only transform from one form to another.
Reflecting on Einstein's words, Lanza suggested that reincarnation is real, since consciousness is contained in the universe itself. On his blog for the Huffington Post, Dr. Lanza writes: "In fact, it was Einstein's theory of relativity that showed that space and time are indeed relative to the observer." He adds: “If the world is created by an observer, we should not be surprised that it collapses along with the death of each of us. Space and time disappear, and with them all Newtonian concepts of order and prediction disappear. " The scientist points to Einstein's belief that space and time are interrelated concepts and one cannot exist without the other.
Consciousness and time
Let's say Lanza is right and time for the deceaseda person is really rebooted and consciousness appears at another point in space-time. However, there is something, without which neither one nor the other can exist - this is the observer. This means that consciousness simply reappears at another point in space-time after death.
“We think that the past is the past, and the futureIs the future. But, as Einstein realized, it just isn't true. Without consciousness, space and time are nothing; in fact, you can accept any time - past or future - as your new frame of reference. Death is a reboot that leads to new opportunities. "

But there is something else that no one at the momentdoes not understand - it is consciousness. Scientists do not fully know what it is, where it is and how it functions. Different researchers and different scientific disciplines look at consciousness and its emergence in different ways, I wrote in more detail about how modern science understands consciousness in this article. In other words, there are still very, very many questions, but personally I like Lanz's theory, it is quite beautiful. What do you think of this theory? We will wait for the answer here!
