Thank you, but as much as I know Bohm did it himself, but he rather talked about "mind-like qualities", that the mechanism is somewhat similar, not that there is consciousness. (Consciousness is also very bad term because it includes everything, including creativity and feelings what are subjective terms (ie differen people understand them differently), so we cannot say anything objective about consciousness.) What concerns absolutely dynamic systems (proposed mechanism for artificial consciousness) then the mechanism is very simple - just points are connected to each other and everything else comes from the condition that the system must change, ie new points must emerge and because of that other points must emerge and some points must disappear. So as much as I understand what Bohm asked is rather whether such or other mechanism may be involved somewhere in quantum processes, including the ones what may appear in the neuron, not whether there is any consciousness in the quantum level.
