It is well established that at first there was the Singularity. A single point of nothingness. A mass so heavy, that a tea spoon would fill several billion Universes. Yes I am referring to the beginning. This was followed by the big bang. Rapidly, things changed and there was a massive expansion that created the world as we know it. Ok, we don’t really know it, not even our own planet that has vast areas that remain unexplored. Let us say, we have some theories, a partial understanding and some knowledge. From all this arose life, and from anywhere between 70,000 to a 100,000 years ago, mankind evolved. From Singularity to now has apparently taken 14.4 plus billion years.

Darwin conclusively established the theory of evolution. Trial and error; lots of errors led to genetic change. Over time, complex species developed. Finally, there was us. We had consciousness, a soul, a mind, the ability to think, reason, discriminate and make choices and create Gods. We even had the ability to question whether all of this was indeed true.

Quantum physicists deal with matter at the quanta level. They have observed several interesting phenomena. Matter has been observed to be at two places at the same time. Also, matter has been observed to change when observed. Much like the light in the refrigerator issue, this is hard to prove. However, scientists have been able to establish this with certainty. This leads us to the very interesting theory of Biocentricism. What if all matter can only act the way it does in the presence of life? What if in the absence of it, matter simply stops being the matter we know?

It would shake our entire foundation of scientific knowledge. This is because biocentricism would first require the presence of life for our Universe to evolve the way it did. Were you there when it all started?
