While well known for his work and research in stem cells and regenerative medicine, Robert Lanza is also recognized for his development of the theory of biocentrism: a theory of the universe.
Biocentrism is a theory in which life and biology are the central pieces to reality and the cosmos. The central idea is that life creates the universe rather than the other way around.
The biocentric theory proposed by Robert Lanza builds on quantum physics. While physics is considered fundamental to the study of the universe and chemistry is fundamental to the study of life, biocentrism places biology before any other science to produce a theory of everything – a theory of the universe.
