However, Jeffrey Barrett, Chancellor’s Professor of logic and philosophy of science at the University of California, Irvine, thinks the connection is somewhat arbitrary from the cognitive science side. “It’s really hard to explain consciousness, it is a deep and abiding philosophical problem.” … This rationalization isn’t convincing to him, however. “I don’t think that there’s any reason to suppose from the cognitive science direction that quantum mechanics has anything to do with explaining consciousness,” Barrett continues.
