Biocentric Health of the Universe

“What is the role of your presence in this particular time and space?” I asked that question exactly two years ago today in a piece I curated on Biocentrism.  It’s a theory that lends a unified view of the foundations of science by turning reality outside-in.  In other words, it assumes the primacy of consciousness by asserting that life creates the universe, rather than the other way around.

I can’t say the perspective is entirely “shocking” for me.  Partially because I’m stimulated by ideas that conjoin the camps of Science and Religion. I see them both as allies in ensuring the survival of our species.  What’s cool about Biocentrism is that we can assume consciousness plays role in shaping our universe.  Why is that cool?  Well, in case you haven’t noticed, you’re a highly conscious mind with a brain unlike any other.  I’d like to think you could make an impact.

You should know the key proponent of Biocentrism is Robert Lanza, a stem cell researcher, who has been so bold to turn the table on physics by suggesting that life doesn’t emerge from matter.  Rather than keeping biology and physics separate, his model combines them and places we, the observers, firmly in the equation.

Holopticism by Jean-François Noubel

Jean-François Noubel

Noubel describes a holoptical space that is attained through an “artificially reconstituted reality involving modeled representations of the Whole.” Participants who engage this Whole are said to be experiencing “Holopticism” which allows them to adjust actions and coordinate.  Each user is provided “artificially synthesized information” which lends a “point of view” and fits their situation. He suggests there is a feedback loop that “works like a mirror between the individual level and the collective one.”

Noubel further clarifies the state of Holopticism:

“Holopticism is a natural quality of original collective intelligence (OCI). OCI is possible only in holoptical environments, in other words in physical spaces in which our natural senses can access the totality of what happens.”

He envisions that Holoptical communities will evolve toward “self-reflexion, self-actualization, higher consciousness and a high capacity to cohere in the being and the doing.”  He mentions their potential to become a global wisdom driven organizations.
