“The primate Mystics, most of them brain-damaged, endlessly told the other primates to “look within.” Most of the primates assumed, in primitive Aristotelian fashion, that what was within was some gaseous entity which they called “mind” or “soul.”{ unable to find such an abstraction, they either gave up in despair or took their negative results as a positive revelation and became adherents of the “no-mind” or “no-ego” philosophy of Buddha and David Hume.

Of course if they had truly looked within, scientifically, they would have found that their thoughts, percepts, and reality-tunnels were determined by the structure of the primate nervous system, which was determined by the genetic or molecular design of the primate evolutionary script, which was determined by the laws of quantum biophysics. That is concretely, their brains were shaped by cells shaped by molecules shaped by atoms shaped by quantum probabilities.” P. 344 of The Schr√∂dinger’s cat Trilogy

I love that line of thinking. The implications are amazing. Note the tags that I put at the end, and imagine applying those concepts to your bio-computer.
