It has been a long time when we started to question our consciousness. Although there has been a huge debate on this, we are yet far away from any sort of conclusion. There are different theories that try to prove the existence of consciousness which actually controls our life and everything around us. However, the scientific community has been really keen to oppose the concept of consciousness and they have been arguing that there is no scientific base for this and hence, this is nothing but a result of a hyperactive and creative mind.
But now things are going to change through a revolution in science. There has been a genuine paradigm shift in the arena of quantum physics. This shift in quantum physics or quantum mathematics opposes the mainstream science which is truly materialistic in nature. A substantial number of quantum physics scientists have now altered the age old thinking. Currently they are now supporting and developing a paradigm based on the primacy of consciousness. Among them Amit Goswami, Ph.D is a prominent name. He is among the pioneers of this revolutionary new perspective within science. In a recent interview he shared his vision of the unlimited potential of consciousness. He also explained and advocated for consciousness as the ground of all being. In the same interview, he also explained how this revelation can actually help us to live better.
In the interview, Amit Goswami was asked a number of questions about quantum physic or mathematics as well as consciousness. In reply, he had some amazing things to say. According to him the value of quantum physics is really critical in terms of giving us a new world view on how consciousness can be and is the ground of our being. In other words, quantum physic helps us to see directly how we can make sense of the world only if we base the world on consciousness. According to him, the world is made of consciousness and it is based on it and Quantum physics makes this as clear as daylight. As per Amit Goswami, quantum mathematics or Science is the most fundamental description of nature. This clearly shows that movements of object are only describable in terms of possibility not the actual event that we see in our life. Quantum physics calculate only possibilities of that and if we accept this we will face another question who or what chooses among these possibilities of event (1).
So we see that there is something that has to take a decision for those possibilities and bring in the actual event. This is what we consider as consciousness that is actually not within the quantum physics rather is beyond it. It is like an observer and it can’t be ignored. We can only describe the objects not the subjects. So we get the idea that the subject must be more fundamental than the object. Consciousness is also more fundamental and it must be the ground of being which object part is of. The objects are then described as a wave of possibilities which is well explained in quantum physics (2).
