The Self Aware Universe: How Consciousness Creates the Material World

November 11, 2012

A Book Review

Author – Ami Goswami, Ph.D. with Richard E. Reed and Maggie Goswami

Ami Goswani

  • Professor of physics at the Institute of Theoretical Sciences at the University of Oregon

Richard Reed

  • Author and literary agent

Maggie Goswani

  • Author of The Cosmic Dancers

Penguin Putnam, 319 p.

In this instance, the book cover really does tell the story–All of Existence looking back at itself. Goswani and his co-authors put forth the concept that consciousness is indeed the basis for All That Is. Building on the extensive work already done in Quantum Physics, the authors help give readers meaning and purpose to their existences. This book effectively links mind and body in such a way as to establish a joyful connectivity between all things.

Clearly written, the authors entice readers with good chapter titles like, “The Nine Lives of Schrödinger’s Cat”, “In Search of Quantum Mind”,  and “Spiritual Joy”. Carefully constructed illustrations and a useful glossary help readers make their own connections with the concepts being addressed. Great end notes and the bibliography add scholarly depth and an excellent index makes for easy reference while reading and after.
