Let me be so very unkind as to start off this review by laughing out loud at Robert Lanza and
Bob Berman: their Appendix 1, entitled "The Lorentz Transformation," features a single
equation (which is reproduced below, with the correct version for comparision):
T = t 1 - v2
/ c2
(Biocentrism version) T = t 1- v2
/ c2
(corrected version)
Like me, you at first (perhaps) think that their problem is merely that of having chosen a bad
typesetter: but, no­­they go on to say " t should be multiplied by the meat-and-potatoes of the
Lorentz transformation, which is the square root of 1, from which we subtract..." No, neither
Robert nor Bob are at home with this simple element of physics. They bollix it! (In their
acknowledgements, they thank Ben Mathiesen for his help with the material in the appendix, so I
must mention poor Ben's name as well.)
Let's go on now to Appendix 2, "Einstein's Relativity and Biocentrism." Here the news is much
better! I did not go through the details of their exposition, but their theme is one that is dear to
