BG proposed this validation method : Qualified as quantum theories of consciousness defended by Sir Eccles, these views are far from prevalent.
BG (Leader of 'Yes') has the opinion that Yes (04/01/2014 09h29)
BG (Leader of 'Yes') says I must say that I was absolutely not convinced by quantum theories of consciousness until yesterday, when I read the news about the NSA developing "quantum computer that could crack most types of encryption" (see ref. above). It occurred to me that brain (and living cells) have developed since the "beginning" in a universe where quantum physics is the rule. It means that complex phenomenons that could help to process data in a "new optimized way" were available to our neurons for millions of years. If the NSA can break codes with quantum computers, why not some of our neurons in a way that we don't understand yet? Sir John Eccles offered a precise micro-tubular theory about that a few years ago. (04/01/2014 09h38)
Dumbo has the opinion that Yes because I have random opinions! (04/01/2014 10h03)
BG (Leader of 'Yes') says An important recent paper to read on this topic Consciousness in the universe : A review of the Orch OR theory (Stuart Hameroff, Roger Penrose): "there is a connection between the brain's biomolecular processes and the basic structure of the universe."... "The Orch OR proposal suggests conscious experience is intrinsically connected to the fine-scale structure of space-time geometry, and that consciousness could be deeply related to the operation of the laws of the universe" (16/09/2014 15h51)
