    Stuart Hamerhoff has a website about this. No less than Roger Penrose has contributed to his ideas.

    Personally, I'm skeptical, even though I'm working on a SciFi novel with this premise.

      because this stuff interests me. Found it really difficult to read. Mr. Hamerhoff really needs a better website designer!

    •  I couldn't make much sense of the Hamerhoff link. (1+ / 0-)

      I looked up quantum consciousness and found a wiki link about "quantum mind" here, which I am guessing is the same thing.

      I read Gurnt's diary and thought, I basically agree with all of this, although I think it's not very well expressed or explained.  In my agreement, though, I see no need to resort to quantum theory.  

      In fact, resorting to quantum theory to explain consciousness seems to obviate Gurnt's dualist argument.  

      For the record, I'm a relativist.  I think everything we are and that we think we know is a construct and that the objective universe isn't nearly as objective as we think it is.  You could prove all of quantum theory to be a hoax tomorrow, and it would have little to do with disproving or reaffirming my own position.
