"I do not think that there is a reputable scientist on this planet who would advocate using this technology to generate a human child as was just announced."
"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."Robert Lanza on Albert Einstein
"The typewriting machine, when played with expression, is no more annoying than the piano when played by a sister or near relation."Robert Lanza on Oscar Wilde
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."Robert Lanza on Arthur C. Clarke
"The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life."Robert Lanza on John F. Kennedy
"I am sorry to say that there is too much point to the wisecrack that life is extinct on other planets because their scientists were more advanced than ours."Robert Lanza on John F. Kennedy
"Amazingly when you add life and consciousness to the equation you can actually explain some of the biggest puzzles of science."
"Our science fails to recognize those special properties of life that make it fundamental to material reality. This view of the world - biocentrism - revolves around the way a subjective experience, which we call consciousness, relates to a physical process. It is a vast mystery and one that I have pursued my entire life."
"Our thoughts have an order, not of themselves, but because the mind generates the spatio-temporal relationships involved in every experience."
"So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we'll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow. We've also created entire tubes of red blood cells from scratch in the laboratory. So there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline."
"In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering you can actually grow up entire organs, so as you suggest that sometime in the future you get in an auto accident and lose your kidney, we'd simply take a few skin cells and grow you up a new kidney. In fact this has already been done."
