Video courtesy of Michael Johnson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBQp34tR0ZQ (also much higher resolution) "Transhumanist Debate 2.0, held in Octopus Literary Salon, April 2nd, 2016. Debate 1 of 3. Topic: How does "global binding" occur in the brain? I.e., how does the brain bind together different kinds of information into one 'global' or 'unitary' experience? Andres Gomez Emilsson argues that any solution must involve quantum entanglement as a fundamental unifying mechanism; Dr. Randal Koene argues that this is neither necessary nor consistent with what we know of the brain."
