We're Back At The Center Of The Universe

Galileo has fallen out of fashion once again. Robert Lanza argues that our present reality has been created neither by God nor evolutionary progress but, well, by us:
If we, the observer, collapse these possibilities (that is, the past and future) then where does that leave evolutionary theory, as described in our schoolbooks? Until the present is determined, how can there be a past? The past begins with the observer, us, not the other way around as we've been taught.
