Seeking a “middle path” between the Orch OR & Phi-IIT positions by exploring their common optimal, analogical geometries

Some Asynsis-Constructal speculations on the relationships between the Orch OR theory of Penrose-Hameroff-Bandyopadhyay and Phi-IIT theory of Tononi-Koch-Tegmark in terms of Chalmer’s Hard problem of the subjective self and optimal, analogical geometries.

Based on exchanges with the principals immediately after the TSC Conference at the University of Arizona, Tuscon, April 2014

  2. Nigel Anthony Reading referred me to your post after I posted the following on my facebook page..

    I write what I do having studied Quantum Physics for my Astrophysics degree and during my Masters degree in Molecular Biology, specializing in Quantum Mechanics simulations of drugs that treat the brain and nervous system:

    Einstein managed to show the universe is the way it is because of geometry. The curved nature of space as well as other topologies right down to Quantum levels informs material physics. Certain geometries in molecular biology, especially protein structures, facilitate much of life and consciousness. It is at the point where Quantum influenced particles coalesce into life supporting molecular geometries that scale up through fractal frameworks that we see Quantum effects sustained to human dimensions. This is true especially with neuron and glial cell matrix and network structures through the Reptilian, Mammalian and Neo-cortex layers of the human brain. Geometry then has the capacity to unite Quantum Physics and Relativity into a Unified Field model. Entanglement has been posited at protein scales and as such suggests that neurons and synapses across the brain might influence one another without direct electrochemical exchanges. It has been said that Neurons that wire together can fire together but this suggests that Neurons that are entangled together can fire together -and since they all originate from one source cell after conception this is possible. If such entanglement could be demonstrated between brains of different human beings then that would not demonstrate some mystical oneness but it would demonstrate a fantastic, complex, geometrical field of interactions we are all immersed in. Sometimes the hard evidence is stranger than the perceived or imagined experience.
