I suspect we all may.
Wong states that, important as a grand unified theory might be, "... it
is lacking in one important fundamental aspect, viz., the role of
consciousness [which] could in fact be considered the most fundamental
aspect of physics."
Given that conciousness seems all too clearly to be centrally involved
in quantum mechanics, and since it is also the primary mechanism whereby
the world is observed, and thus science made possible, I am in full
The nature of consciousness has been a mystery ever since there have
been people, and remains so even in our high tech scientific age.
However, there is a very specific attribute which can be readily
deduced. Consciousness is to the quantum state the way a projector is to
the frames of the projected movie. It is therefore by definition a
system process, a process 'outside' of the moments, just as the
projector is outside' and operates contextually to, the frames of the
movie. Given that there is nothing outside of the universe, by
definition, such a phenomenon can only be an emergent property of the
unitary universe / multiverse system. We know for certain that it is of
The frame of a movie is of one, primitive, logical type, while the movie
itself, the sequence of frames, is of a different second logical type.
Iteration, the action of the movie projector, is of yet another, third,
different logical type. It is common to all movies. In the same way, the
quantum state, the change of the quantum state - the collapse dynamics -
and the iterative function, consciousness, are each of different logical
type. This is fully described in Logical Types in Quantum Mechanics
As Wong states "The universe might be in some sense a Great Mind". The
implications are so extraordinary that the scientific mind baulks. The
experiencer 'in' each conscious observer is an emergent property of the
totality. No wonder that the intuition of some mighty being is part of
