His name is Dr. Amit Goswami and recently I was drawn to his documentary, now on Netflix, called "The Quantum Activist" If you do not have Netflix, own it as a stream online for a mere $3.99.
I saw some video interviews on YouTube where he made some very good points also and I will post them at the end for those that wish to explore his research more. I was very excited, speaking of "Ah ha" moments, to hear him lay out the reason why the materialist fight and resist, tooth and nail, science that reveals the truth about downward causation that he even refuses to call God, but we know better. The paradoxes in science can be eliminated when this one point is realized. More on that later.
OK, let's make the case. Quantum physics states that objects are not determined things. Objects are actually quantum possibilities for consciousness to choose from. Be it material things, thinking, intuit, etc. Waves of possibilities into a conscious choice into an actual event of experience.
Now, in material science, they take the axiom that everything is matter, and that there is only upward causation. Elementary particles make atoms, make molecules, make cells, eventually making brain. Consciousness is an epiphenomenon of the brain. But this does not explain the subtle phenomena of external experience. We have non-sharability experiences also, as an example.
What is the nature of consciousness then?
So possible elementary particles make possible atoms, make possible molecules, make possible cells, eventually making possible brain. Possibility of possible consciousness cannot possibly give you actual objects! This is not a scientific attainable philosophy. A paradox occurs, a Quantum Measurement paradox for wave function collapse.
So consciousness is non-material? No, Same paradox, a tangled hierarchy consciousness. Dualism needs a mediator. 1 Timothy 2:5 comes to mind.
Science does agrees with presuppositional apologetics in that we have to "appeal above and beyond the temporal realm. God’s self-revelation in nature ... informs us of the two-level universe. God is not a fact like other facts in the world. He is the Creator and Establisher of all else. His existence alone makes the universe, and reason, and human experience possible…" ~Bahnsen
Dr. Goswami wishes to avoid the labels we use to avoid materialists attacking a strawman called "God". He wishes to stick to the science, the evidence, of it.
All Quantum Measurement paradoxes were not an issue anymore.
Even in the spring of 2003, the Quantum Mind Conference on "Consciousness, Quantum Physics and The Brain" was held Arizona, USA. Their, now down, web site states, "Recent experimental evidence suggests quantum nonlocality occurring in conscious and subconscious brain function, and functional quantum processes in molecular biology are becoming more and more apparent. Moreover macroscopic quantum processes are being proposed as intrinsic features in cosmology, evolution and social interactions."
The point here being that our brains are receptors to the One consciousness. Brains are different then our minds. We can think independently but cannot will possibilities into actuality. There is downward causation from this nonlocal consciousness that our minds access. We cannot imagine a car in the driveway, or the Euromillions lottery winning numbers for the first lotto drawing in August of this year, for that reason. Christians say, "Thy will be done" and Quantum physics say when the mind lines up with the nonlocal consciousness then we get actuality.
"All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created." ~John 1:3
"For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things have been created through Him and for Him." ~Colossians 1:16
The Doctor also pointed that our immune system simply determines what what is me, and not me. Love is our immune system accepting another. "Two flesh become one" Mark 10:7-9 reveals the One consciousness, God, telling the immune system the chosen mate.
Of course, this is resisted by the materialists, naturalists, and Atheists because they would be forced to change their entire atheistic worldview. So, for Atheists to say that God is not scientific is vastly misleading according to Quantum Physics. The evidence for nonlocal consciousness showed in experiments that the Doctor lists, reveals that.
Also discussed is that we, as humans, are not to only do, do, do but to also just Be. Being is more important then doing. It allows for incubation of the consciousness, like a bird to an egg, Christians call it praying.
"So it's a balance, not just do, do, do. Not just be, be, be. But do, be, do, be, do."
I just recommend the videos to the Atheists as critical thinking skills for their worldview. Caution, your worldview cannot withstand the scientific evidence. From this point forward, it will fully be scientifically recognized as what we have been saying all along, merely denial.
"There is scientific empirical evidence for the existence of "God", the question now is, what are you going to do about it?" ~Dr. Amit Goswami
I wanted to point out something in this three-part playlist. At 1:30 to 6:24 of the second video is an explanation of what actually happened with the separation, and struggle, between science and religion. To me, it has never been put so well online, and I thought everyone would enjoy it. OK, maybe not everyone. :7)
"There was a definite struggle that was so lopsided in favor of Christianity, that it was impossible for a scientist to study the physical world without the interference from the Church of that time period."
"Descartes did a very smart thing" and asserted substance dualism, "that mind and matter are fundamentally distinct. Mind is God's realm and matter is the realm of science, without hindrance of the Church. They both, now, have their own domain. Descartes was trying to establish a truce."
Again, listen from 1:30 to 6:24 of the second video what actually happens next. Very interesting.
The reason for the Quantum Activist title is that he feels when we understand that we are all a part of this Non-Locality, or Oneness, we can make strides to improve our society, our nation, and our world that was destroyed and undermined by the naturalists and materialists. Instead of 'doing' something, like trying to strike down and counter my points, try 'being' and absorbing what I am posing here. Just think about it...Be with that information.
In the post I briefly mentioned something called Quantum Measurement paradox, but I didn't really get into it. First, because it scared me to run down that rabbit hole in the conversation and second, it was not my focus for the post...until now.
So quickly explained is that the paradox, as in Schrödinger's cat, comes in the decision, i.e. when is the trigger point for the actually of quantum possibilities for consciousness to choose from? What is that thing, consciousness, that chooses which reality? Dr. Goswami used the stop light example, which I liked because it is the will of the consciousness that is at play here.
We both arrive at a stop light. Who chooses the stop light to change green in QM language? You or I? It cannot be both. Chaos ensues in the universe if both our consciousnesses makes waves of possibilities become reality of two green lights. Why cannot I will the billions of dollars into my account? It is possible that I can have it, but it is not my consciousness that decides, or wills, that reality. Then who's? Yours? Nope. Anyone? Nope. But the entire QM language is based on a MIND that transfers the possibilities into reality. Yet we do have ego's that allows our souls to have even independent wills and desires.
Again, Quantum Physics is quantum possibilities for consciousness to choose from. So the whole question is which mind. The paradox arrives with the bottom up causation. The materialist believes that the universe is bottom up causation, as you know.
The post says, "possible elementary particles make possible atoms, make possible molecules, make possible cells, eventually making possible brain." So then a possible brain makes a possible consciousness that, in turn, makes the choices from quantum possibilities for consciousness to choose from. To, then once again, make the possible elementary particles make possible atoms, make possible molecules, make possible cells...? Infinite regress abounds. THAT is the paradox. This is NOT a scientific attainable philosophy.
Yet the materialist dogmatically states this is the reality we live in.
Occam's razor even applies here. This consciousness stands outside of space and time and where all brains are tuned in like radio receivers, but not ONLY receivers, relaying the signals. So the entire question, of the entire post and quantum physics, is where is the signal transmitting from? All the paradoxes are a non issue and fade away with Nonlocal consciousness...i.e. God.
