IOW, Lanza's biocentrism is another contemporary re-working of some of Kant's philosophy. As would partly be the "our cosmos is a virtual reality" ideations a la The Matrix. (The latter hypothesis trend, however, simply duplicates the material / phenomenal world again [especially its computers] at what would otherwise be an ancient Greek's supersensible level. Which then leads to an endless regress rather than termination of such "ultimate" provenances with a traditional intellectual realm of regulating principles, dissimilar from the former that it makes possible.)PhilEx's article wrote: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.
