Quantum Brain, Mind or Consciousness: Part 2

Current Landscape and Future Direction of Theoretical & Experimental Quantum Brain/Mind/Consciousness Research (by Huping Hu, Maoxin Wu): Abstract: The issues surrounding quantum brain/mind/consciousness research are both confusing and complex. If one can manage to grasp these issues, one may find that the past of this field has been fruitful and its future is indeed very promising. The current landscape and past achievements in this field have already been discussed by our colleagues as pointed herein. This editorial mainly attempts to classify/clarify some of the major issues and discuss what are lying ahead. Whatever difficulties may still remain, recent experimental results by several groups including those of the authors’ own make it very clear that quantum effects play important roles in brain functions despite of the denials and suspicions of the naysayer and skeptics. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/109

Time for Quantum Consciousness (by Massimo Pregnolato)

Abstract: The consciousness is the basis of our reality and our existence, but the mechanism by which the brain generates thoughts and feelings remains unknown. Most of the explanations depict the brain as a computer, with nerve cells (neurons) and their synaptic connections acting as simple switches. However, the calculation alone cannot explain why we have feelings, awareness and "inner life". Indeed, neurophysiological processes and phenomena of the mind are now among the biggest unanswered questions in science. It is time for quantum consciousness. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/105

Experimental Support of Spin-mediated Consciousness Theory from Various Sources (by Huping Hu, Maoxin Wu)

Abstract: This paper summarizes experimental support to spin-mediated consciousness theory from various sources including the results of our own. In doing so, we also provide explanations based on this theory to experimental phenomena such as out-of-body experience and sensed presence, quantum-like cognitive functions and optical illusions. Whether one agrees or not with the spin-mediated consciousness theory is for one alone to judge. In any event, the importance of the experimental results mentioned in this paper is obvious: quantum effects play important roles in brain/cognitive functions despite of the denials and suspicions of the naysayer and skeptics. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/110

Consciousness-mediated Spin Theory: The Transcendental Ground of Quantum Reality (by Huping Hu, Maoxin Wu)

Abstract: It is our comprehension that Consciousness is both transcendent and immanent as similarly understood in Hinduism. The transcendental aspect of Consciousness produces and influences reality through self-referential spin as the interactive output of Consciousness. In turn, reality produces and influences immanent aspect of Consciousness as the interactive input to Consciousness through self-referential spin. The spin-mediated consciousness theory as originally proposed has mainly dealt with the immanent aspect of Consciousness which is driven by the self-referential spin processes. This paper focuses and “regurgitates” on the transcendental aspect of Consciousness which drives the self-referential spin processes. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/111
