[閱讀筆記] 生命中心論 (Biocentrism):物質宇宙並非獨立於意識之外而存在


Robert Lanza (2014 時代百大影響力人物、生物科學家) 及 Bob Berman (物理學家) 以量子力學為基礎,提出了生命中心論,認為物質宇宙並非獨立於意識之外而存在,生命與意識是瞭解宇宙本質的關鍵!

生命中心論的七大法則 (The 7 Principles of Biocentrism):

1. 我們感知到的真實是一個與我們的意識有關的過程。
What we perceive as reality is a process that involves our consciousness.

「外在」真實如果存在的話,依照定義應該會存在於空間之中。

但這是毫無意義的,因為空間與時間都不是絕對的真實,而是人類與動物心智的工具。

An “external” reality, if it existed, would – by definition – have to exist in space.

But this is meaningless, because space and time are not absolute realities but rather tools of the human and animal mind.
2. 我們的外在感知與內在感知密不可分。
Our external and internal perceptions are inextricably intertwined.

兩者猶如硬幣的兩面,無法分割。

They are different sides of the same coin and cannot be divorced from one another.
3. 次原子粒子的行為 (意即所有的粒子與物體) 與觀察者息息相關。
The behavior of subatomic particles –indeed all particles and objects – is inextricably linked to the presence of an observer.

少了有意識的觀察者,它們充其量只是處於一種尚未確定的機率波狀態。
4. 少了意識的存在,「物質」處於尚未決定的機率狀態。
Without consciousness, “matter” dwells in an undetermined state of probability.

意識存在前的任何宇宙只是處於一種機率狀態。

Any universe that could have preceded consciousness only existed in a probability state.
5. 宇宙的結構只有透過生命中心論才能解釋。
The structure of the universe is explainable only through biocentrism.

宇宙為生命而調適 (許多基本物理常數非常巧妙地正好使得生物能夠生存),這一點合情合理,因為生命創造宇宙,而非宇宙創造生命。

The universe is fine-tuned for life, which makes perfect sense as life creates the universe, not the other way around.

宇宙只是自我的全套時空邏輯。

The “universe” is simply the complete spatiotemporal logic of the self.
6. 時間並不真實存在於動物感知之外。
Time does not have a real existence outside of animal-sense perception.

時間是我們感知宇宙變化的程序。

It is the process by which we perceive changes in the universe.
7. 空間,和時間一樣,並沒有實體。
Space, like time, is not an object or a thing.

空間是動物感知的一種形式,並沒有獨立的實體。

Space is another form of our animal understanding and does not have an independent reality.

我們隨身攜帶空間與時間,就像烏龜揹負著龜殼。

We carry space and time around with us like turtles with shells.

因此若沒有生命,物理事件並沒有絕對獨立存在的基礎。

Thus, there is no absolute self-existing matrix in which physical events occur independent of life.
