Consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all existence, declares University of Oregon physicist Goswami, echoing the mystic sages of his native India. He holds that the universe is self-aware, and that consciousness creates the physical world.

"Amit Goswami steps the reader through a history of the discovery and analysis of quantum physics in his quest to explain how modern Western scientific research has disavowed consciousness to its (science's) detriment. By posing the accepted contemporary thought process against logic unconfined by strict experiential assumptions, Goswami scripts a new paradigm that points physics toward a refreshingly new model of the universe where consciousness and not matter is seen as the essence of reality."
