About

I am interested in the physics of unconscious and conscious biological mentality. Until very recently it was assumed that living organisms could not exploit quantum superposition and entanglement effects. This seemed obvious because shielding a quantum laboratory experiment from the effects of environmental decoherence required elaborate planning and equipment. However, it is now established that living organisms do use quantum mechanical processes for photosynthesis, magnetic sensing, and other needs and that they do so using a different approach than the physics lab experiments. Nature basically exploits environmental decoherence at the molecular level rather than merely shielding against it. Since it is now established that organisms utilize quantum effects, it is reasonable to speculate that such effects may play a role in both unconscious and conscious biological mentality. And perhaps this involves a kind of processing that transcends the known Turing theoretical limits of any classical or quantum computer.
