I believe that thoughts occur on 2 levels. One level is the physical brain where all consciousness comes from macroscopic quantum processes ala Frolich, and our visible and auditory consciousness comes from collapse of the quantum waves.

So on the physical level we have both thinking via a classical computer, the visible and auditory consciousness, which can work out problems using words and visualization-

And we also have on the physical level a quantum computer that can solve problems unconsciously.
In both cases the thinking is done with ordinary particles, albeit rather special particles, rather membrane dipoles, that behave as a macroscopic BEC (which happens according to Frolich when we are awake and supply the dipoles with sufficient energy to from a BEC).

In my opinion thoughts also occur on what might be called a non-physical level, although the particles involved, which I think are axions, are just as physical as electrons and protons, just more invisible. Axions have spin and are at rest. So they are automatically a BEC. The spin direction of the axions couple into dipole direction, presumably in the reverse process as well, dipoles couple into axion spin direction.

This level and its axions exist in dark matter. It allows for remote sensing, and maybe for dreaming, at least lucid dreams. I would think of it as the seat of the soul. Again there is both unconscious and conscious thoughts in this level, depending on whether the quantum waves are collapsed.

Now as Paul puts it, this is mostly guesswork, but guesswork that is not inconsistent with known physics.

So the question is, since I am not cognizant of the meanings of various labels, does this set of beliefs make me a dualist, a realist, an idealist, or something else. This is a serious question. I would like to know what I am.

Regards, Richard
