Quantum Consciousness

4 09 2009

I find Penrose & Hameroff’s theories on consciousness extremely enticing.

In this three-part series, Stuart Hameroff, MD, author and consciousness theorist discusses time, classical and quantum theory, molecular biology, proto-consciousness as superposition, and whether or not we create that which we experience as “reality.” Hameroff is a professor of Anesthesiology and the Psychology Associate Director for the Center for Consciousness Studies, University of Arizona. His books include “Ultimate Computing” and the “Toward a Science of Consciousness” series.
