What if the world around us is just a shadow of reality? Imagine, for example, that you wake up one cold winter morning and look out your window to find that the view is completely obscured by beautiful ice crystals, forming strange patterns on the glass.

The mere mention of “quantum consciousness” makes most physicists cringe, as the phrase seems to evoke the vague, insipid musings of a New Age guru. But if a new hypothesis proves to be correct, quantum effects might indeed play some role in human cognition.
