There seems to be more writing available lately about the interplay of quantum mechanics with biology. The interesting thing about this seeming surge in interest is that, I think, most people are going to just accept the idea more and more that reality is defined by the observation of fundamental sub-atomic particles. Maybe another way to say that and one that I like better, is that consciousness creates. The "seeming surge" in interest about the fundamental aspects of reality is a bit misleading because I think it is an area of interest that has been growing for decades and we are just becoming more aware of it because it is becoming more main stream science. Experimental methodology for observing quantum effects is being refined to the point where someday science will, I think, have proven to most people's satisfaction that reality is not at all what it appears but is something which we all, at times, have suspected it may be. Reality may indeed be the consciousness created hologram upon which we play and experience existence together as beings of light - sound far-fetched? What do you think about the growing importance of quantum mechanics in scientific articles? Is this the crescendo leading to enlightenment? Michael Prescott's blog has an interesting entry about this in which he talks about a new book and whether, as the author's postulate, biology creates reality or as Michael seems to prefer consciousness creates reality. It is an interesting blog post and I found it worthwhile reading. I then read the Discover magazine article "Is Quantum Mechanic's Controlling Your Thoughts?" which is also a great article on biological process that are thought to be interacting in a quantum mechanical manner to achieve their purpose. The last section of the article is about the consciousness and the mind which is well worth reading - as is the entire article.
