DR AMIT GOSWAMI has been a professor of physics at the University of Oregon since 1968 and his research has been published in scientific journals in the fields of physics, biology and psychology.

He is one of a number of scientists who have ventured into the domain of the 'spiritual'. Apart from the successful textbook Quantum Mechanics, he has authored many books based on his research of quantum physics and consciousness, including The Self-Aware Universe, Quantum Creativity and Physics of the Soul. His two-volume textbook for nonscientists, The Physicist’s View of Nature traces the decline and rediscovery of the concept of 'God' within science.

He has appeared in various documentary films such as What the Bleep do We Know (which voiced views on the nature of reality which many scientists regard has highly speculative).
