Through Me, the Universe: A Stroll through the Curious Solipsism of Biocentrism

The odd and self-centered biocentrism movement believes the universe is created by consciousness and we are central to it.

If you have religious friends of a scientific bent and you are on Facebook, then you’ve probably been subjected to the phenomenon that has freely labeled itself biocentrism. Biocentrists believe that the universe is created by consciousness and that almost every unknown in current science can be adjudicated by an appeal to the role living beings have in forging the cosmos with their minds. They couch these beliefs in quantum physics and, unlike more blatant New Age appropriations, the science is good enough to deserve a thorough looking over.

For people frustrated with the fact that science has not yet explained everything, it offers ready answers.

In 2010 he published Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Key to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe with astronomer Bob Berman, and it has since become the key text for a movement seeking a scientifically respectable weapon with which to hack a path back to the sixteenth century using the tools of the twenty-first.
