It is widely accepted that consciousness or, more generally, mental activity is in some way correlated to the behavior of the material brain.
Real Physics Has Some Mind-Bending Answers Science says the universe could be a hologram, a computer program, a black hole or a bubble—and there are ways to check But that was before quantum. Neoclassical Cosmology, Cosmos and Quantum. In other words space, so essential in classical physics, seems to play a considerably less basic role in quantum physics.
Mathias Albert, Quantum mind and social science: unifying physical and social ontology. While written by one of the leading scholars in the field, at first glance this is not a book about International Relations IR. It certainly is a book about almost everything else, including definitions of life, will, subjectivity and consciousness. While this might sound strange to most students of International Relations, there are good reasons why they should read Quantum mind and social science.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. In it, an international group of contributors focus on the possible connections between quantum mechanics and consciousness. Alternatively, what does the nature of consciousness tell us about the role of the observer and time reversibility in the measurement process? Acacio de Barros is a physicist working on the foundations of quantum mechanics, philosophy of physics, and psychology.
Quantum social science is an emerging field of interdisciplinary research which draws parallels between quantum physics and the social sciences. Although there is no settled consensus on a single approach,  a unifying theme is that, while the social sciences have long modelled themselves on mechanistic science, they can learn much from quantum ideas such as complementarity and entanglement. Some authors are motivated by quantum mind theories that the brain, and therefore human interactions, are literally based on quantum processes, while others are more interested in taking advantage of the quantum toolkit to simulate social behaviours which elude classical treatment. Quantum ideas have been particularly influential in psychology, but are starting to affect other areas such as international relations and diplomacy in what one paper called a "quantum turn in the social sciences". The idea that quantum physics might play an important role in living systems has long been considered by physicists. In his book The Emperor's New Mind , Roger Penrose hypothesized that quantum mechanics plays an essential role in human consciousness.
Quantum Mind and Social Science: Unifying Physical and Social Ontology could be a destabilizing reading for International Relations IR scholars, especially for those with materialistic assumptions about what reality is and should be. Wendt is not reinventing the wheel. This is why, according to Nicholas Onuf , Waltz is a constructivist in his conception of what a theory is in the domain of scientific activity. The idea of creativity goes further in the work of IR post-positivist scholars such as Poststructuralists, Postmodernists and even Neo-Marxists. In Quantum Mind , Wendt escapes this paradigmatic war by adhering to a metaphysical tradition that reconciles and synthetizes the most significant assumptions of each tradition: Scientific Realism. The latter is in fact a neo-positivist approach to social reality which assumes the naturalist assumption according to which the Real World does exist independently of human observation. In other words, there is a real world out there, outside our minds.
The nature of consciousness remains deeply mysterious and profoundly important, with existential, medical and spiritual implication. What consciousness actually is, and how it comes about remain unknown. The general assumption in modern science

In this ground-breaking book, Alexander Wendt challenges this assumption by proposing that consciousness is, in fact, a macroscopic quantum mechanical phenomenon.
Кольцо у нее, сказал он. Наконец-то. Он не знал, каким образом она поняла, что ему нужно кольцо, но был слишком уставшим, чтобы терзаться этим вопросом. Его тело расслабилось, он представил себе, как вручает кольцо сияющему заместителю директора АНБ. А потом они со Сьюзан будут лежать в кровати с балдахином в Стоун-Мэнор и наверстывать упущенное время.
Он многое знал об искусстве ведения переговоров: тот, кто обладает властью, должен спокойно сидеть и не вскакивать с места. Он надеялся, что она сядет. Но она этого не сделала. - Сьюзан, сядь. Она не обратила внимания на его просьбу. - Сядь. - На этот раз это прозвучало как приказ.
Не понимаю. Кто будет охранять охранников. - Вот. Если мы - охранники общества, то кто будет следить за нами, чтобы мы не стали угрозой обществу. Сьюзан покачала головой, не зная, что на это возразить. Хейл улыбнулся: - Так заканчивал Танкадо все свои письма ко .
