Is Quantum Mechanics Needed to Explain Consciousness?

Knud Thomsen

Abstract

In this short comment to a recent contribution by E. Manousakis it is argued that the reported agreement between the measured time evolution of conscious states during binocular rivalry and predictions derived from quantum mechanical formalisms does not require any direct effect of quantum mechanics. The recursive consumption analysis process in the Ouroboros Model can yield the same behavior.
