Alexander,

The most revealing inquiry to this post of yours comes from Mario, who asked, “Does Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle refer to our inability to measure both the position and velocity of a particle, or does it refer to a particle actually posessing only one distinct quality?” So far no one has attempted a response.

It’s a huge declaration of ignorance to assume the latter possibility without first considering the former. Before asking things like, “...if QM is mechanics of waves (therefore ‘wavy’ electrons and atoms should obey the uncertainty principle), then why can't brain be to some degree uncertain too?” , one should substantiate his assumption that Mario’s question cannot be answered by the former response.
