Formatted abstract
The article: “Consciousness in the universe: A review of the ‘OrchOR’ theory” by Hameroff and Penrose reviews work concerning a proposal for the origin of consciousness by Penrose. This model postulates that microtubules can sustain long-lived quantum states and support quantum information processing associated with the effects of quantum gravity (“OrchOR”)...
