Biocentrism, also known as the biocentric universe, is a theory of everything. Biocentrism proposes that, rather than a belated and minor outcome after billions of years of lifeless physical processes, life and consciousness are absolutely fundamental to our understanding of the universe. From the perspective of Biocentrism, our current theories of the physical world don’t work, and can never be made to work, until they account for life and consciousness.
Biocentrism was proposed in 2007 by American scientist Robert Lanza.
