Dear Dr. Hameroff, I mean no disrespect, and with my only credential being that of common sense, I would like to suggest that you consider abandoning materialist solutions to the "problem" of consciousness in your series of seminars on the science of consciousness, for these can never work.
This is because consciousness is simply the perceptions by first person singular. But materialist solutions can only give descriptions of consciousness, those of the third person singular. Kant and Plato have partly described the nature of the first person singular, but Leibniz has given us the most complete and logical definition in his platonic theory of perception: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/leibniz-mind/ So I invite you to look into the platonic, not the materialist, solution.
