I have read ORCH-OR by Hameroff and Penrose.
I think this is very important because it explains things in a very simple and elegant way. Wave/Particle duality is extended to macroscopic objects
and it's just a matter of scale.
This is from an article in nature.
Early quantum theorists treated the quantum–classical transition almost as a kind of sleight of hand, something that had to be imposed on
quantum mechanics to recover the familiar world. Now, however, there are strong signs that the transition can be understood as something that emerges
quite naturally and inevitably from quantum theory. If that's so, it implies that 'classicality' is at root simply another quantum phenomenon.
“There's good reason to believe that we are just as much part of the quantum world as are the tiny atoms and electrons that sparked quantum theory
in the first place,” says quantum theorist Maximilian Schlosshauer of the University of Melbourne in Australia.
I think it's just a matter of scale and when entangled quantum states reach a certain size, the probability waves become standing waves and a
classical observer can know both position and momentum.
On a quantum level, the probability wave is spread out over different universes or branes.
So lack of information leads to the uncertainty of position and momentum. It's like a box that's taped up. You're uncertain about the contents of
the box until you open it and see what's in the box and then you gain information and reduce uncertainty.
Our universe is like a box that can never be opened. This is because of infinity and the probability wave extends into other universes. This is why
physicist are going into other extra dimensions or parallel universes to try to explain things. This is because our box(universe) doesn't contain all
the information. So we have talk of braneworlds and bubble universes. We can look into the box at different angles and from different corners but
there will always be a level of uncertainty because we can never open the box.
So we're projections of entangled quantum states and we're just a classical version of wave/particle duality.
