I am glad to hear they will come into some use. I don't think you necessarily need to get into consciousness. You might just explain that humans, like any other system of particles, can also be in superpositions (because the particles that make up the person are in superpositions). If you don't explain it in this way, how will you account for finding only one black spot? BTW, I like your idea of the photographic plates, and think I will take your suggestion.
