You have written:
>>>Quantum electrodynamics can make no such statement untill it knows what consciousness IS.
Humans do not know what it IS. You attempt to qualify something we do not understand with a variable that we have no evidence of.

First of all, we perfectly know what consciousness, sensations, emotions and thoughts are, because they are exactly what we directly feel. The only phenomenon we directly know is consciounsess. All our knowledges about other phenomena are more indirect.

Besides, we have lots of evidences for the laws of physics; Quantum Electrodynamics is sistematically and quantitatively confirmed by billions and billions of experimental data.
Quantum Electrodynamics provide a consistent explanation of al chemical and biological processes; the point is that it gives no explanations and no justifications (neither conceptually) of the existence of consciousness, sesations, emotions, thoughts.
