Robert Lanza is Chief Scientific Officer of Advanced Cell Technology (ACT) and Adjunct Professor at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Wake Forest University School of Medicine.
Lanza received both BA and MD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was both a Benjamin Franklin Scholar and a University Scholar. Lanza is a former Fulbright Scholar and has worked with well-known scientists Jonas Salk, B. F. Skinner, and Christiaan Barnard. He has been described as "the living embodiment of the character played by Matt Damon in the movie Good Will Hunting."
Biocentrism can refer to the scientific position that life and consciousness form the basis of observable reality, and thereby the basis of the universe itself. The biocentric theory proposed by Robert Lanza builds on quantum physics by putting life into the equation. His theory places biology above the other sciences in an attempt to solve one of nature’s biggest puzzles: the theory of everything that other disciplines have been pursuing for the last century. In biocentrism, space and time are forms of animal sense perception, rather than external physical objects. Understanding this more fully yields answers to several major puzzles of mainstream science, and offers a new way of understanding everything from the microworld (for instance, the reason for Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and the double-slit experiment) to the forces, constants, and laws that shape the universe.

If time is just an animal perception, then how come I can look at a picture of me when I was a child? What was between then and now? Nothing?

Between now, and the past, is called change, also known as time. But there really is no time, there is only a now, that is constantly changing.
For something to exist, it has to be between more than one frame of reference. Otherwise, it wouldn't be observable, and it wouldn't exist.
For example, YOU. You exist now, now, now, now, now, now, ..etc. over multiple frames of referance. "Time" as we know it, is equal to existance.
Our sense of the forward motion of time is really the result of an infinite number of decisions that only seem to be a smooth continuous path. At each moment we are at the edge of a paradox known as The Arrow, first described 2,500 years ago by the philosopher Zeno of Elea. Starting logically with the premise that nothing can be in two places at once, he reasoned that an arrow is only in one place during any given instance of its flight. But if it is in only one place, it must be at rest. The arrow must then be at rest at every moment of its flight. Logically, motion is impossible. But is motion impossible? Or rather, is this analogy proof that the forward motion of time is not a feature of the external world but a projection of something within us? Time is not an absolute reality but an aspect of our consciousness.

So it's impossible to time travel now if that's the case and also do you mean that it's that just our reality or consciousness is continuously morphing(changing) in a set spot for infinite but we perceive it as a path we call "time"?
