Excellence Reporter: Dr. Goswami, what is the meaning of life?
Amit Goswami: As our culture becomes materialist, there is widespread suspicion that there is no meaning. Fortunately, I and others are bringing about a worldview change based on quantum physics that restores meaning.
It is our mind that gives meaning to everything. But matter cannot process meaning. So if you believe mind is brain, you are undermining meaning questions.
Shake yourself lose from such materialist beliefs. Can mind be nonmaterial? It not only can, it is. The brain is like a computer hardware making software representations of mental meaning.
Realize that and realize it is up to you to process meaning and realize the meaning of your particular meaning of life. In the quantum worldview life is saturated with meaning and events of synchronicity–meaningful coincidents–keep reminding us of that!
In the quantum worldview, consciousness is the ground of being and the evolution of consciousness has meaning and purpose. Right now that purpose is to explore the archetypes like love, justice, power, abundance, goodness, and truth and make better and better representations of them. You align yourself to this universal purpose and explore the archetype of your choice and make meaningful representations; in no time your life will seem meaningful. It is that simple!
~Amit Goswami, Ph.D. — Quantum Activist
Dr. Goswami is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicated in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, where he also solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect. In his most recent book, Quantum Economics: Unleashing the Power of an Economics of Consciousness Goswami focuses on critical issues for a new paradigm in economics and business for the twenty-first century, touching upon the stability and sustainability of the economy and leadership, as well as creativity and ethics in business.

A low quality consciousness from a physical perspective can be expressed as being of high entropy. It is high entropy since it is ego centric and the ego evolves out of our bodily fear of death. Our purpose is expressed in religion ,the Magnus opus and yoga and Taoism as to have union. There are two aspects to this union, though it is a wholeness to have union within the Self is to have union with the greater consciousness field. This wholeness is expressed as know God , know Self , giving the gnostic knowledge of the Magnus Opus. The archetype of this consciousness is the Christ the Buddha ,the enlightened consciousness,which Jung calls individuation ,the whole self. As in all reality there is the opposite, which must be realized,the archetype of our own unconscious fear of death,symbolized as the ominous devil.
All the great enlightened teachers have done the battle with this archetype ,the universal battle of good and evil as expressed in the Bhagavad Gita. You are your own hero and your battle is to overcome your own fear. It is the narrow path that few will enter,the path to the kingdom withinin.
