Are you afraid of death? This terrible phobia in the scientific language sounds like thanatophobia and, to some extent, is found, perhaps, in every person. Perhaps death is the biggest mystery to humanity, because no one has yet managed to find out what happens after its onset. However, on the subject of death, there are many different theories and the author of one of the most interesting is the American scientist Robert Lanza. In his opinion, death does not actually exist - people invented it themselves.
To some, the theory may seem crazycrazy, but Robert Lanz cannot be called such. Over the course of his life, the 63-year-old scientist has made a huge contribution to the study of stem cells used to restore organs. He is also the author of numerous books in which he even touches on the topic of cloning. For his services, he even won a place in the ranking of 100 most influential people in the world according to TIME magazine.
Is there death?
In 2007, the scientist created the concept socalled biocentrism. We are all accustomed to believing that life arose because of the existence of the universe, but Robert Lantz’s theory completely reverses this idea. The scientist put into the term of biocentrism the idea that we, living beings, are the center of everything that surrounds us - we even create time and the universe itself.
Death is no exception. According to Robert Lanz, death exists for us only because we begin to identify ourselves with our bodies from early childhood. After all, we all believe that after the stoppage of the work of all our organs, we will inevitably face the same terrible and unknown death? But the scientist is sure that even with the inoperability of the body itself, the human mind continues to work and simply moves to another world.

What happens after death?
Feels mysticism, right? However, the scientist substantiates his words with the rules of quantum mechanics, according to which in reality there are a huge number of options for the development of events. For example, if in one of the "realities" (or universes, call it what you like) a person died falling off a cliff, then in some of the parallel worlds he will feel the danger in time and avoid death. The consciousness that was inside the already dead body will smoothly pass into another reality, where a person is alive. In a word, human consciousness is immortal and exists outside of space and time.
Human consciousness is energy,which does not disappear and cannot be destroyed. It can only move endlessly and change its shape, ”Robert Lanza explained in one of his works.
All this sounds like esotericism, but nevertheless - suddenly this is true? This seems to be a great topic to discuss in our Telegram chat. Let’s talk about the credibility of the American scientist’s theory.
Are there aliens?
Also, Robert Lanza does not believe in existencealiens and sure that their invasion of Earth will never happen. In one of his essays, he mentioned that he loves science fiction, but at the same time he emphasized that all this is only fiction and will always remain with him. At the same time, other scientists, including the legendary Stephen Hawking, were always worried about the possible attack of aliens on our planet. But still - why is it that one believes in the fact that an alien invasion will never happen?
