BIOCENTRISM: How Life Creates the Universe

Bob Berman
Co-author of Biocentrism (with Robert Lanza, MD)  
Contributing editor, monthly columnist for Astronomy magazine
Astronomy editor of the Old Farmers Almanac

Are time and space merely forms of animal perception? Are nature and consciousness correlative? Using the classic double-slit experiment, the Copenhagen interpretation, and common sense, Bob Berman will [try to] convince you that your kitchen doesn't exist after you leave it at night. Humorous but thought-provoking, this lecture will show why any Grand Unified Theory must bring the observer into the equation.
