Consciousness in the universe: A review of the ‘Orch OR’ theory

Highlights

  • The Orch OR theory proposes quantum computations in brain microtubules account for consciousness.
  • Microtubule ‘quantum channels’ in which anesthetics erase consciousness are identified.
  • Evidence for warm quantum vibrations in brain microtubules is cited.
  • Interference of microtubule vibrations are ‘beat frequencies’ seen as EEG.
  • Orch OR links consciousness to processes in fundamental space–time geometry.
