A Brief History of the Study of Consciousness

Stuart Hameroff explains the Orchestrated Objective Reduction (Orch-OR) theory of quantum consciousness in microtubules. He presents data in support of three hypotheses:

1. Consciousness is a process in the structure of the universe, connected to the brain via quantum computations in microtubules ('Orch OR')

2. OR-based primitive feelings present in the universe may have prompted the origin of life and driven its evolution... to 'feel good'

3. Resonating brain microtubules with transcranial ultrasound (TUS) can safely and painlessly improve mood, and offer promise for Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury and other disorders
