Sixth Principle of Biocentrism – Time is Our Perception

Time Does Not Exist Outside of Perception

People accept that time exists as a physical entity because we have invented those objects called clocks, which are simply more rhythmic and consistent than budding flowers or apples rotting. In reality what’s happening is motion, pure and simple — and this motion is ultimately confined to the here and now. Everything prior to this moment is the past, gone forever. But this subjective feeling of living on the edge of time is a persistent illusion, a trick of our attempts to create an intelligible organizational pattern for nature in which one calendar day follows upon another, that spring precedes summer, and that years pass. Time in a biocentric universe is not sequential — however much our habitual perceptions dictate that it is.

Science has no real explanation why we’re alive now, existing on the edge of time. According to the current physiocentric worldview, it’s just an accident, a one-in-a-gaziollion chance that we are alive.

From a biocentric point of view, time does not exist in the universe independent of life that notices it, and really doesn’t truly exist within the context of life either.


There are 7 Principles of Biocentrism, all of which are built on established science, and all of which demand a rethinking of the physical universe.

Sixth Principle of Biocentrism: Time does not have a real existence outside of animal-sense perception. It is the process by which we perceive change in the universe.
