Discovery of quantum vibrations inside the ‘microtubules’ in human brain neurons support the controversial theory of consciousness.
As per the views of two popular scientists, the brain of the human is a biological computer and the consciousness of a human is a software programme which is activated by ‘the bio quantum computer’ in the brain.
In addition to this, it continues to be in existence even after death.
According to the researchers, after the death of people, the soul goes back to the cosmos but does not die.
Let’s pause for a while and try to understand the basics of this.
If you enquire this from the scientists they would definitely come out with the debate if the soul exists and that it is an essence of immortality which has been debated for many hundreds of years among the universal thinkers.
The puzzling and shifty nature of the soul has avoided the comprehensive idea in spite of the scientifically considered areas under study.
But now a group of scientists is on the belief with a step closer to understand that the human consciousness and the soul are puzzling and it does not die, yet it goes back to the universe.
Is there any “Evidence”?
These facts are just similar to a fiction of science; but where is the evidence?
Twenty-three years ago, in 1996, Stuart Hameroff, an American Physicist, along with Emeritus in the Department of Anaesthesiology and Psychology and Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematical physicist at Oxford University, worked together on the Quantum Theory of Consciousness. It was able to show that the human soul is real with consisting microtubules of the brain cells.
According to Dr. Hameroff who spoke to the Science Channel ‘Through the Wormhole’ documentary:
“Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing; the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, and it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large.”
“If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules, and the patient says ‘I had a near-death experience.’ If they’re not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.”
All the views expressed by Hameroff and Penrose are based on a quantum theory of consciousness that holds that the core of the soul is contained by the structures known as microtubules within brain cells.
As per Hameroff and Penrose, the human brain is a biological computer and the consciousness is software which can be programmed and operated by the quantum computer within the brain. And they say that this programme is operated even after the biological death of that particular person.
Furthermore these scientists suggest that the consciousness is certainly the effects of quantum gravity inside the so-called microtubules
This is named as “Orchestrated Objective Reduction” (Orch-OR) in honour of the two scientists.
According to the argument of their theory, when people go through the stage called ‘clinical death’, these microtubules inside the brain lose their quantum state. But they keep up the information in them.
“The origin of consciousness reflects our place in the universe, the nature of our existence. Did consciousness evolve from complex computations among brain neurons, as most scientists assert? Or has consciousness, in some sense, been here all along, as spiritual approaches maintain?” This is the question which was asked by Penrose and Hameroff in their current review.
“This opens a potential Pandora’s Box, but our theory accommodates both these views, suggesting consciousness derives from quantum vibrations in microtubules, protein polymers inside brain neurons, which both govern neuronal and synaptic function, and connect brain processes to self-organizing processes in the fine-scale, ‘proto-conscious’ quantum structure of reality.”
Even after 2 decades of skeptical criticism, “the evidence now clearly supports Orch OR,” says Hameroff and Penrose. “Our new paper updates the evidence, clarifies Orch OR quantum bits, or “qubits,” as helical pathways in microtubule lattices, rebuts critics, and reviews 20 testable predictions of Orch OR published in 1998 — of these, six are confirmed, and none refuted.”
Eventually, the lead author Stuart Hameroff ends saying, “Orch OR is the most rigorous, comprehensive and successfully-tested theory of consciousness ever put forth. From a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions.”
