no . . . and, no resolution in the debate by theoretical physicists . . .
then to propose that one idea or the other is absurd and not worthy of
consideration is simply pedantic closed mindedness, and not good science
nor good anthropology.
As to neurophysiological processes . . . take a look at Stuart Hameroff's
latest work on microtubules . . . and the theory of quantum structure in
the brain which is developing out of it.
Regardless of if a person is willing to posit an interconnection model
or not, your position seems to be to have a closed mind to anything except
your own point of view . . . and in this case, that point of view is getting
some large holes shot in it by cutting edge research in both physics and
