Barking Up the Wrong Tree for Life?

Maurice Goodman



The fundamental problem with the Penrose (1) and Loewenstein (2) attempts to explain long range communication in biology and consciousness in the brain is that the mass of the particles associated with electromagnetism and chemistry are too big for quantum coherence to occur at room temperature over cellular and intercellular distances. The electron neutrino (and its associated weak force) weighing in at between 0.1eV/c2and 2.5 eV/c2 is a much more likely candidate for overall organisation and communication within and between cells.
