Amit Goswami [carece de fontes?] é um professor aposentado de Física Teórica da Universidade de Oregon e estudioso da Parapsicologia .

É PhD em Física Quântica pela Universidade de Calcutá, na Índia, professor aposentado do Departamento de Física da Universidade de Oregon, nos Estados Unidos, e membro do Instituto de Ciências Noéticas. Depois de desenvolver carreira como professor e pesquisador no Instituto de Ciência Teórica da Universidade de Oregon, tendo publicado 21 artigos na área de física quântica[carece de fontes?], passou a se dedicar ao estudo da parapsicologia, no que passou a chamar de "Ciência e Consciência" .

Segundo Roberta Pinheiro, escrevendo para o Correio Braziliense, o autor é "conhecido no mundo inteiro por defender a substituição do materialismo pela consciência como base do mundo". Outras fontes atestam sua grande notoriedade internacional. Escreveu grande número de artigos publicados em revistas de medicina, economia e psicologia. Entre os seus livros não acadêmicos se destacam os best-sellers A Física da Alma, Criatividade para o Século 21 e O Ativista Quântico. O livro A Física da Alma já vendeu mais de 50 mil exemplares no Brasil. Também é autor do livro texto Quantum Mechanichs usado internacionalmente em cursos introdutórios sobre física quântica em várias universidades.

Vários de seus livros pseudocientíficos foram traduzidos para o português:

A Física da Alma

Criatividade Quântica

Criativade para o Século 21

A Janela Visionária

O Médico Quântico

Citações Amit Goswami

„Místicos, ao contrário de religiosos, dizem sempre que a realidade não é duas coisas - Deus e o mundo - mas uma coisa, consciência.“

—  Amit Goswami

Mystics, contrary to religionists, are always saying that reality is not two things -God and the world- but one thing, consciousness.
entrevista com Suzie Daggett da Insight: Healthy Living (julho de 2006)

„A consciência é a base de todo ser.“

—  Amit Goswami

in idealist philosophy, we speak of consciousness as the ground of all being.

„Not only because you can't understand quantum physics without this new metaphysics but also because the new paradigm resolves many other paradoxes of the old paradigm and explains much anomalous data.“

—  Amit Goswami

Interview with Suzie Daggett at Insight: Healthy Living (July 2006).
Contexto: Mystics, contrary to religionists, are always saying that reality is not two things — God and the world — but one thing, consciousness. It is a monistic view of reality based on consciousness that mystics claim to directly intuit. The problem with science has always been that most scientists believe that science must be done within a different monistic framework, one based on the primacy of matter. And then, quantum physics showed us that we must change that myopic prejudice of scientists, otherwise we cannot comprehend quantum physics. So now we have science within consciousness, a new paradigm of science based on the primacy of consciousness that is gradually replacing the old materialist science. Why? Not only because you can't understand quantum physics without this new metaphysics but also because the new paradigm resolves many other paradoxes of the old paradigm and explains much anomalous data.

„This view does not deny that matter also has causal potency — it does not deny that there is causal power from elementary particles upward, so there is upward causation — but in addition it insists that there is also downward causation. It shows up in our creativity and acts of free will, or when we make moral decisions. In those occasions we are actually witnessing downward causation by consciousness.“

—  Amit Goswami

"Scientific Proof of the Existence of God : An interview with Amit Goswami" by Craig Hamilton in What Is Elightenment? magazine http://www.wie.org/j11/goswami.asp (Spring-Summer 1997).
Contexto: The current worldview has it that everything is made of matter, and everything can be reduced to the elementary particles of matter, the basic constituents — building blocks — of matter. And cause arises from the interactions of these basic building blocks or elementary particles; elementary particles make atoms, atoms make molecules, molecules make cells, and cells make brain. But all the way, the ultimate cause is always the interactions between the elementary particles. This is the belief — all cause moves from the elementary particles. This is what we call "upward causation." So in this view, what human beings — you and I think of as our free will does not really exist. It is only an epiphenomenon or secondary phenomenon, secondary to the causal power of matter. And any causal power that we seem to be able to exert on matter is just an illusion. This is the current paradigm.Now, the opposite view is that everything starts with consciousness. That is, consciousness is the ground of all being. In this view, consciousness imposes "downward causation." In other words, our free will is real. When we act in the world we really are acting with causal power. This view does not deny that matter also has causal potency — it does not deny that there is causal power from elementary particles upward, so there is upward causation — but in addition it insists that there is also downward causation. It shows up in our creativity and acts of free will, or when we make moral decisions. In those occasions we are actually witnessing downward causation by consciousness.

„I had a dream that felt like an admonition to me. I heard it so clearly: "The Tibetan Book of the Dead is correct. It's your job to prove it!"“

—  Amit Goswami

... There are residue dreams which are an extension of our waking life. Then there are what Carl Jung calls "big dreams" and my dream about the Tibetan Book of the Dead was one of those big dreams. One of those can change your life. It can change it for awhile or forever. Those dreams are in the same local time domain as when we have an experience of Holy Spirit.

„In Self Awareness Universe the breakthrough is that consciousness is the ground of being.“

—  Amit Goswami

Interview at NewConnexion (September 2002).
Contexto: In Self Awareness Universe the breakthrough is that consciousness is the ground of being. We have to introduce consciousness into science, but to do this consciousness must have some structure to manifest itself. That structure requires mind, vital energies, supra-mentality, soul in other words. All of that was lacking in the "self aware universe model." If I had stayed with that model I would have felt as dissatisfied as I was before the "self aware universe model."
