The Visionary Window:
A Quantum Physicist’s Guide to Enlightenment
By Amit Goswami, Ph.D.
With a foreword by Deepak Chopra, M.D.
During the last few centuries, science hasn’t left much room for religion or spirituality, or even for God. According to much of western science, we live in a material world that is governed by physical laws and we, ourselves, are merely the result of the principles of evolution and natural selection. Even consciousness is thought to be the product of physical processes in the brain. Nowadays, however, modern physicists have pulled the rug out from under our understanding of the world – they have discovered, for example, that at subatomic levels, we can no longer locate or identify anything called “matter.” Instead, they suggest, there are only “waves of possibility,” which require some other factor before a “measurable scientific event” emerges. That other factor is consciousness.
In The Visionary Window Goswami shows how quantum mechanics undermines the conclusions of material realism. He also traces how western scientists and philosophers came to believe in a world divided between the sacred and the secular, or matter and mind, and explores the debate between creationism and evolution. Finally, he shows that a complete reconciliation between science and religion is actually possible, since both are seeking the fundamental truths of the universe. In fact, he suggests that the new science may also provide a new foundation for ethical thought and behavior. – JC
