Consciousness could be related to light

(bot summary)


Quote:Quantum consciousness?Three significant proposals stand out in this field: first, the one formulated by Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff in 1996, according to which the brain develops quantum calculations based on what they call orchestrated objective reduction to activate neurons and generate consciousness.



Quote:Second, another no less relevant proposal, formulated in 2015 by Matthew Fisher, a physicist at the University of California, Santa Barbara: suggests that quantum processing would be operative in the brain, which is what allows it to function as a quantum computer.



Quote:Third, the proposal made by Chinese scientists led by Zhuo Wang, from the South-Central University for Nationalities: they discovered in 2016 that photons of biological origin, known as biophotons, may be involved in the quantum mechanism of the brain. They have detected a link between intelligence and biophoton frequency in animal brains.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
