since every thing is made up of when you get right down to it atoms.

atoms can be used in quantum computing, so can molecules. it has been done in the laboratory. a large molecule may be more problematic with respect to making quantum computing happen, but a large extremely complex molecule such as a protein that is able to change its shape may be an asset depending on it's spatial configuration and the types of chemical bonding and bonding effects that may exist. it could set up an envirenment in which quantum computing could take place using other smaller molecules within that envirenment and work as a network through which useful information could be transported.
it could even provide a cooling effect and a shielding effect from interference heat and interference are the two big problems of quantum computing within the brain.

as an asside to all of this consider DNA the spiral molecule that plays such an important role in genetic information. DNA has been made to work in the laboratory as a computer. probably as a binary model though.

perhaps you were mislead by my statement in an earlier post maintaining that "nothing like uncertainty presents one with the opportunity to make a decision". i admitt that was a bit of a tongue in cheek remark in some respects and that is how it was meant but we should all remmember that comedy (even bad comedy like mine :) usually has a grain of truth to it.
