J, and everyone else who is interested. I'd recommend reading Roger's book "Shadows of the Mind". He there expounds his theory in a more complete way, with more precision. To give proper credit, his argument against computable mind is a subtle one (and an old one at that) and one cannot simply dismiss it without proper thought. Nevertheless, it's likely wrong

Okay, sorry, can't pass this by 😂 Roger is a very bright scientist, but his theory of quantum consciousness sounds like bogus. Reason? It is based on two very questionable assumptions: 1) quantum phenomena involve non-computable processes, and 2) human brain maintains macroscopic quantum state across large neural circuits (by somehow using cytoskeletal microtubules responsible for transportation within cells) For his theory to be correct BOTH of these unlikely assumptions must hold true. It's very improbable. Especially the second part

Second part yes a little unlikely.....first part not so much perhaps ..... While the theory is there some quantum phenomena is still hard to prove and replicate in a lab....but that's as it stands only right now.... I think tho quantum physics is very close to re writing some laws if it hasn't already especially with people like Google already developing basic rudimental AI😉 .... And as a side note .... Ty for an intelligent counterpoint georgiy ... It helps no end buddy 🙏👌
