Review

"For anyone grappling with the interrelationship of mind, matter, and divinity, this book will offer much new food for thought." -Beverly Rubik, PhD, biophysicist, Institute for Frontier Science Adjunct Professor, Saybrook

About the Author

Amit Goswami is a theoretical nuclear physicist and professor emeritus of physics at the University of Oregon, where he taught for 30 years.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is a small but growing range of writings by scientists who are exploring the strange world of quantum physics and finding that it is not inconceivable that it leads towards a state of reality that could fairly be described as God. This exciting trend away from the dead hand of dreary reductionist materialism will give open-minded, intelligent readers something to chew on, whether or not they agree with the conclusions. The physics, however, is solidly established and set out in this book by an expert by a top physicist who writes clearly for the layman. You can't ask for more. Buy it, read it and expand your horizons.

This book should be both appealing to readers of the materialist scientific background (or conviction), as well as to the common Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, and to readers who are interested in the metaphysical and in ancient spiritual traditions. The perspective of quantum physics to the question of God seems to be the only way in which we can both integrate the material & spiritual into our world view, without the two contradicting each other. If you aren't aware of the most fundamental implications of quantum physics, this book has the potential of changing and challenging your world view. Goswami displays, in a peaceable way, that within "new science", there is room for both physics and spiritualism. "Quantum Activist" Amit Goswami conclusively challenges us, the reader to become Quantum Activists ourselves in order to better the planet and to evolve society as a whole. The insight and acceptance of a true, universal creator alone, and the implications that come with it should be our starting point.

Not having read any previous books of the author (at least ten), it appears to be a well balanced "summary" of his work, as Goswami often gives reference to topics discussed in his previous books, as well as to the work of many other scientists and authors when discussing one of the many related topics. To prove the case of a universal Creator, the most complex problem to resolve in science, it is of course necessary to approach this from many different angles. With all it's different content, the book appears to be very well structured. Sometimes a little dry, however the author on some occasions shows to have great humor which will make you smile.

Amit Goswami, for many years professor of physics at the University of oregon, but today perhaps best known for his contributions to the provocative and profound "What The Bleep"-movie. The movie 'sceptics' loved to hate.

In his previous books Goswami has tackled problems about the universe we live in, life after death/reincarnation and the Eastern concept of enlightenment, all viewed from his special outlook: combining quantum physics and spirituality in a non-dualistic vision.

Here he again tackles the hot subject of intelligent design, presenting af view that's challenging both for creationists and neo-Darwinists (Dawkins & Co.). Showing that there's ample reason to admit, that we live in a Universe that's somehow 'created' by a higher intelligence. And showing convincingly, that subscribing to the sound view of 'Intelligent Design' has nothing whatsoever to do with (fundamentalist) Christianity.

This territory he has covered before, but here he takes it a step futher, dealing with the loaded concept of a Creator/God. And trying to anchor his views in a practical morality, always a difficult matter to deal with.

As always with Goswami the book is well-written, entertaining and thought-provoking. Another cry of insight and vision in the often all to barren modern day intellectual climate! Should appeal to readers interested in a new scientific paradigm. And in writers like B. Allan Wallace, Deepak Chopra, Stan Grof, Fred Alan Wolf. And anyone open minded enough to challenge his/hers prejudices about how the world around us (and in us) functions.

As with his previous book this one is more engaging and challenging than deeply convincing.

I found this book by Amit Goswami far more accessable than his previous "self aware universe" and presents the case for the primacy of consciousness rather than matter as the mainframe of the book. As a former agnostic I have been lead to revise my view based upon my own experiences of non medical healings of serious ailments that cannot fit into the current materialist paradigm, nor rationalised by the fear based atheism of Richard Dawkins. It is only through the works of Goswami and other quantum theorists that these occurrences make some kind of sense. The most interesting part of the book for me presented the experiments detailing "non-local coherence" where a particular thought is transferred to a second party simultaniously rather than travelling from points A to B. This evidences at least on some subtle level, that consciousness is transcendent to the brain and would also be a ground to understanding distant healing.
Goswami also presents a lucid and common sense take on evolution, bridging "ceative intelligence" and current evolutionary theories rather than embracing intelligent design.
A large chunk of the book handles how consciousness "collapses" the quantum waves into our 3D reality, albeit through some quite complex experimental data and examples but in a far more readable fashion than some of his earlier works. Bigotted atheists and religious fundamentalists may not be moved by this book, yet for anyone with an open mind who is receptive to the ideas presented in this work, many of the inconsistencies within the current materialist paradigm can be addressed.
