E-mail: maldonadocarlos unbosque. Probably the crux of quantum science is the relationship between consciousness and reality. The name for that relation is varied, and points out to a most fundamental problem, namely the possibility to overcome dualism.

How is mind related to matter? This ancient question in philosophy is rapidly becoming a core problem in science, perhaps the most important of all because it probes the essential nature of man himself. The origin of the problem is a conflict between the mechanical conception of human beings that arises from the precepts of classical physical theory and the very different idea that arises from our intuition: the former reduces each of us to an automaton, while the latter allows our thoughts to guide our actions. The dominant contemporary approaches to the problem attempt to resolve this conflict by clinging to the classical concepts, and trying to explain away our misleading intuition. But a detailed argument given here shows why, in a scientific approach to this problem, it is necessary to use the more basic principles of quantum physics, which bring the observer into the dynamics, rather than to accept classical precepts that are profoundly incorrect precisely at the crucial point of the role of human consciousness in the dynamics of human brains.
The nature of consciousness remains deeply mysterious and profoundly important, with existential, medical and spiritual implication. What consciousness actually is, and how it comes about remain unknown. The general assumption in modern science Hameroff S, P. Pylkkanen, R. Tuszynski Ed.

Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics pp Cite as. Classical physics has no natural place for consciousness. According to the classical precepts, the sole ingredients of the physical universe are particles and local fields, and every physical system is completely described by specifying the dispositions in space and time of these two kinds of localizable parts. The system is logically complete in the sense that it does not logically require, for its description of nature, any things beyond the dispositions of the particles and local fields.
Consciousness Researchers tell us that we are an energy that shifts, changes and travels unbound by time and space. Quantum Scientists tell us that we are energy, consisting of subatomic particles andthat the entire universe is our home. Both are right, we are Quantum Consciousness.
This article examines the relevance of quantum mechanics QM to the free will debate. First, it outlines how QM involves three features potentially of relevance to free will, namely indeterminism, nonlocality, and what may be called observer-participation. Second, it looks at interpretations of QM that might be seen as restoring determinism to physics, namely the many-worlds interpretation and the Bohm interpretation. Third, it considers some objections that have been raised to the notion that QM is relevant to free will.
The book is highly recommended to physicists, mathematicians, social scientists, and intelligent general readers. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents.
Nobody understands what consciousness is or how it works. Nobody understands quantum mechanics either. Could that be more than coincidence? The American physicist Richard Feynman said this about the notorious puzzles and paradoxes of quantum mechanics, the theory physicists use to describe the tiniest objects in the Universe. But he might as well have been talking about the equally knotty problem of consciousness.
