Amit Goswami, Ph.D., was born in India and raised in the Hindu tradition. He earned his Ph.D. from Calcutta University in theoretical nuclear physics in 1964 and is professor emeritus in the physics department at the University of Oregon, in Eugene, Oregon, where he has served since 1968. He taught physics for 32 years in this country, mostly in Oregon, before fully retiring in 2003. Goswami was a senior scholar in residence at the Institute of Noetic Sciences during 1998-2000. He teaches quite regularly at the Holmes Institute and the Philosophical Research University in L.A.; Pacifica in Santa Barbara, CA; and UNIPAZ in Portugal. Goswami is a pioneer of the new multidisciplinary paradigm of science based on the primacy of consciousness called "Science within Consciousness," as well as the author of the highly successful textbook, Quantum Mechanics. His two-volume textbook for nonscientists, The Physicist's View of Nature, traces the decline and rediscovery of the concept of God within science. His research has been published in scientific journals in three different fields: physics, biology, and psychology. Goswami has also written eight popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness. In his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, he solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect while paving the path to a new paradigm of science based on the primacy of consciousness. Subsequently, in The Visionary Window, Goswami demonstrates how science and spirituality can be integrated. In Physics of the Soul, he developed a theory of survival after death and reincarnation. His book Quantum Creativity is a tour de force instruction about how to engage in both outer and inner creativity. Goswami's last book, The Quantum Doctor, integrates conventional and alternative medicines. In his private life, Goswami is a practitioner of spirituality and transformation. He refers to himself as a "quantum activist." The public knows Goswami perhaps the best since his leading role in the hit independent film, "What the Bleep Do We Know!?". He has also appeared on numerous radio talk shows, including "New Dimensions" and "Thinking Allowed". Goswami currently resides in Eugene, Oregon.

Does God exist? Can spirituality be integrated with science? Is happiness possible? Do miracles really happen? Not only does The Visionary Window answer “yes” to all of these questions, but it skillfully combines the fields of philosophy, cosmology, religion, and psychology to form a new way of thinking about science and spirituality. Stepping beyond the classic work of prominent seventies physicist Fritjof Capra, Goswami details his own pioneering exploration of science and spirit, revealing the complete integration between modern science and spiritual traditions. Using stories and colorful examples from pop culture, Goswami addresses complex issues in language and terminology easily accessible to the lay reader. He provides quantum physics-based theory and new experimental data verifying the metaphysical truth that exists when employed in the context of a new science, science within the primacy of consciousness. With a new holistic worldview, Goswami also discusses the creativity of the body to self heal; the power of spiritual practice and how to choose a meditative path; and the five stages of spiritual growth, culminating in the ability to transcend the physical laws of nature. Readers, scientists and spiritual leaders alike will find answers to many of life’s deepest mysteries.
