Inspired by the striking evidence for quantum effects in biology,23,24) it has been argued that microtubules, which play critical roles in all eukaryotic cells, possess structural and functional characteristics that are consistent with quantum coherent excitations in the aromatic groups of their tryptophan residues66); the consequence of these observations have been put forth with a proposition that “quantum biology in neuronal processes underlie the emergence of consciousness and these processes are sub-served by microtubules”.66) From information processing perspectives, microtubules in brain has been proposed to serve as a communication channel that facilitates information transfer and storage; these sub-neuronal processes occurring at the level of microtubules might underlie the generation of consciousness.67)

Voices in the head doe's not exist, it is in their own imagination and a fake illness invented by the individual. .....they are all lier's and fakes and attention seekers,
It is not possible to know someone else's thoughts, or what is going on in their heads. It is unreasonable and extremely rude to suggest they are liars.It also goes against the spirit of the rules you signed up to when you joined this forum.
