Ok, watched and ready to comment.

Interesting interview, I think Hameroff might be onto something.

Didn't realise the interviewer would be skeptical, even more saddened to read the Youtube comments, with most thinking this isn't possible and worse some actually being quite rude citing Hameroff to be a "Quack!"

Of course sometimes there is only one voice of reason in a room and to be honest I hope it is Hameroff's.

Great vid OP.

It is based on a quantum theory of consciousness he and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose have developed which holds that the essence of our soul is contained inside structures called microtubules within brain cells.

They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).

Thus it is held that our souls are more than the interaction of neurons in the brain. They are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe - and may have existed since the beginning of time.

The concept is similar to the Buddhist and Hindu belief that consciousness is an integral part of the universe - and indeed that it is really all there may be, a position similar to Western philosophical idealism.

With these beliefs, Dr Hameroff holds that in a near-death experience the microtubules lose their quantum state, but the information within them is not destroyed. Instead it merely leaves the body and returns to the cosmos.
