Quantum consciousness, quantum mysticism, and transhumanist engineering

Love the article! Its an idea that won’t go away. Penrose’s and Hameroff’s Orch-OR has recently been getting some limited scientific confirmation. See links below. I have long wondered if this might be a scientific basis for inspiration ever since I read Penrose’s 1994 book Shadows of the Mind which is influenced by Hameroff’s earlier work on microtubules. You might like my article from a couple years ago, http://www.transfigurist.org/2015/05/spiritual-intuition-and-scientific.html.

Also replies to the article in science direct.

“Reply to seven commentaries on “Consciousness in the universe: Review of the ‘Orch OR’ theory””

“Reply to criticism of the ‘Orch OR qubit’ — ‘Orchestrated objective reduction’ is scientifically justified”
