Robert Lanza Quotes

Our instinctual understanding of reality is the same as most other animals.

Modern science cannot explain why the laws of physics are exactly balanced for animal life to exist.

Until we recognize the essential role of biology our attempts to truly unify the universe will remain a train to nowhere.

We have failed to protect science against speculative extensions of nature continuing to assign physical and mathematical properties to hypothetical entities beyond what is observable in nature.

I do not think that there is a reputable scientist on this planet who would advocate using this technology to generate a human child as was just announced.

When science tries to resolve its conflicts by adding and subtracting dimensions to the Universe like houses on a Monopoly board we need to examine our dogmas.

That's absolutely correct and in addition to that life just isn't an accident of the laws of physics. There's a long list of experiments that suggest just the opposite.

We are more than the sum of our biochemical functions. Even the tiniest flea is an incredibly complex living creature with mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of your cat or dog.

Amazingly when you add life and consciousness to the equation you can actually explain some of the biggest puzzles of science.

Time is not an absolute reality but an aspect of our consciousness.

The laws of nature are structured so that we grow and change and get to experience the full spectrum of biological existence.

For example if the big bang had been one-part-in-a billion more powerful it would have rushed out too fast for the galaxies to form and for life to begin.

We don't have time to wait for President Bush to change his mind. How many breakthroughs have been missed as a result of this policy?

Death is simply a break in our linear stream of consciousness.

Reality is observer-determined - it's a spatio-temporal process which fortunately means that things must change.

Our linear concept of time means nothing to nature.

Religion and science look at reality differently.

Any universe that could have preceded consciousness only existed in a probability state.

We take for granted how our mind puts everything together.

Our thoughts have an order not of themselves but because the mind generates the spatio-temporal relationships involved in every experience.

Nothing has existence unless you I or some living creature perceives it and how it is perceived further influences that reality. Even time itself is not exempted from biocentrism.

In whatever form it takes life sings because it has a song. The meaning is in the lyrics.

Physics tells us observations can't be predicted absolutely. Rather there's a range of possible observations each with a different probability.

Without consciousness space and time are nothing.
