Re: It's always been quantum

That's an interesting point...

I'm not one to say the brain is a specific way (quantum or classical, logical or random, knowable or unknowable) but I'm not keep to rule out any system as being "classical only" until fully known.

We don't know everything about the brain and it's functions. One thing is for certain, cellular activity is on the atomic scale. Is it on the quantum scale within a cell? As my thoughts are effected by my physical makeup, my cells and their reaction, could it be effected on the quantum level?

Even without, it's hard to copy/read/grab a moving target, and the brain is very much a plastic thing.
