Commentary on Elio Conte's “On the Possibility that We Think in a Quantum Probabilistic Manner”

Huping Hu


Conte shows that indeterminism, entanglement and interference in quantum mechanics can be formulated with Clifford algebra. These formulations then allows him to address possible quantum‐like properties in human cognition. Conte also proposes a new logic to connect cognitive function to measurement in quantum mechanics. This new logic is based two new mathematical theorems proven by him and it is the reverse of the matrix logic proposed by von Neumann. Conte and his colleagues have also carried out important experiments demonstrating quantum‐like entanglement and interference in human cognition.
