A question

  1. Feb 25, 2004 #1
    Is there a quantum basis for HUMAN AWARENESS? Our awareness a PART of the UNIVERSE right?

    Your thoughts are eagerly anticipated.

    Be well,

    I do not think we have decided what awareness is, let alone whether it has a quantum basis. Whether the brain facilitates quantum effects, however, has been the subject of past debate.

    DO you have a BEST guess as to WHAT 'awareness' IS?

    Might I suggest that you go down to the philosophy boards and look at the various consciousness threads? They have been all over most of the definitions and problems.
