We live is a bizarre reality. Click here: So What is life?
Even today, even after being able to pull it apart and examine it through a microscope and in laboratories, science still does not have the definition for what is life, let alone the meaning of life, let alone what consciousness is in our bizarre reality.

Life, because it is such a complex system of things, with so many interacting parts, each of which is essential, is really tough to make a definition. We live in a bizarre reality, which I will talk about here.
I find this quote striking:
”For what we do as scientists, [a definition of life] is unnecessary. It’s sort of like a lot of big questions in science: ’Where are we from? How did the universe get created?’ These are big questions that we’ll probably never be able to solve. But not knowing what life is doesn’t change our ability to engineer it.”
For me this says it all.
Science is great at pulling the puzzle apart and understanding a few of the pieces. They can re-arrange them, to create something quite marvellous, like inventions we can monetize, and play with; which also changes our lives completely, like the iPhone. But the overall puzzle, even the question what is life, is lost to them, to us.
Yes, they can look at it in its entirety, but still not have an answer. What does the puzzle actually represent?
But if life in its organic mechanized form can’t be defined, what is consciousness, let alone what is life?
Consciousness is part of life, it does not tell us what is life, but it certainly leads us toward a bizarre reality. The fact is that no one knows what consciousness is.
So what is consciousness according to my experience? Consciousness is everything at once.
What do I mean?
Consciousness is everything you are aware of at once.
So consciousness is me being awake, and it is also me when I’m asleep, and dreaming. Yet I’m still that same person aware that I’m dreaming, if it is lucid.
Consciousness is something other than just the brain, it’s something extra, it’s something inexplicable, it’s something we all share, and life would not be possible without it.
According to science : everything we know about the universe tells us that reality consists only of physical things. It is made up of atoms and their component particles, busily colliding and combining.
Above all, critics point out, if this non-physical mental stuff did exist, how could it cause physical things to happen – as when the feeling of pain causes me to jerk my fingers away from the saucepan’s edge?
The problem is that there seems to be no logical reason to draw the line at dogs, or sparrows or mice or insects, or, for that matter, trees or rocks.
Since we don’t know how the brains of mammals create consciousness, we have no grounds for assuming it’s only the brains of mammals that do so – or even that consciousness requires a brain at all.
The argument unfolds as follows: physicists have no problem accepting that certain fundamental aspects of reality – such as space, mass, or electrical charge – just do exist. They can’t be explained as being the result of anything else.
Explanations have to stop somewhere. The hunch is that consciousness could be like that, too – and that if it is, there is no particular reason to assume that it only occurs in certain kinds of matter.
For me the trouble is everyone gets it wrong. It’s not about understanding what the puzzle represents as a whole, it’s about inventing new pieces of the puzzle to accommodate our curiosity.
It’s about creation, which is what consciousness seems to be doing all the time: creating more and more new ways of experiencing this thing we call life.
But there is a new theory that does not try to explain what consciousness or life is. It simply says that life, or consciousness, creates the universe, not the other way around.
At first, when I read about Biocentrism I thought this was seriously far out there, and really hard to grasp. But the more I read about it, the more I understand it, the more I realize this is truly the only way reality functions, and the first realistic attempt at explaining the theory of everything. And the question is no longer what is life, it is: what can I do with life?
Biocentrism looks at reality through the lens of biology, more so than through mathematics. Click here:
