Myth Of Quantum Consciousness

I once came across a lengthy essay on the web, entitled "The myth of quantum consciousness", or something.

This notion of brain being just chemical reactions equivocating to people being same, has no substance. Someone writes a novel on a computer- and after pulling apart the computer and finding only quantum mechanics/ electical componentry- does that mean the other dimension of the novel, its dramas and so-on, isn't there? Of course not.

The materialist arguments you use are non-sequiturs.

The biological-reductionist arguments have been dismantled by others- read John Hospers "An Introduction To Philosophical Analysis"; or Thomas Szasz "Insanity, The Idea And its Consequences".

You presumably have forgotten how you developed during your first three years; so please- it is you who make claims from a perspective lacking in knowledge.

Surely you can agree on the desireability of investigating missing data? The best textbook on biology and physics is for you TO READ YOU!

I read not just me; currently I test my ideas against the comprehensive physics book: "The Force Of Symmetry" by Vincent Icke (also "Schrodinger's Kittens" by John Gribben).
