Utilizing the latest developments in quantum biology, neuroscience, physics, and cosmology, Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff wrote the attached article in 2014 to bridge materialist science and a non-material solution to the “hard problem” of consciousness.
Through the Orchestrated Objective Reduction, Penrose and Hameroff talks about the brain’s unique structure that enables it to handle quantum processes. This theory has recently been corroborated by a study which showed that the microtubules in the neurons in the brain can orchestrate quantum processes and store memories [Another theory of consciousness was pushed forward by Guilio Tononi. It is called The Integrated Information Theory].
