    Not much to discuss, I'm afraid. Penrose, brilliant as he is, is expressing a personal opinion based on precious little science. It is almost as simple, and simple-minded, as "We don't understand consciousness. We don't understand QM. Therefore, one implies the other."

    The only reason he is taken seriously at all is that he is so supernaturally brilliant. But here he is at least knocking on the gates of Crackpot City, if not running for mayor.
