Every time I see the thread title "Biocentrism" my twisted brain sees "Biometerology," as posed by Sharknado 1 & 2 creator Thunder Levin.

Just sayin'.

I think. I notice my thinking; at that point I exist.

Actually "I" don't exist in the sense we usually assume.

Interesting rebuttal...personally my Rebuttal would have been, If this is such a great and wonderful revelation for all mankind, whey do you have to buy your book to discover it?

Re: Biocentrism

In you learned folks' estimation, does this construct fall into the "not even wrong" or, heaven forbid, "wronger than wrong" syllogisms I've been reading so much about lately?

Re: Biocentrism

It is also our view that one can find much meaning, beauty and purpose in a naturalistic view of the universe, without having to resort to mystical notions of reality.
Well, that's really gratuitous. It's as interesting and as important as asserting that "our view is that it's fun to drop watermelons out of a high window."
