I'm sure you know that what constitutes consciousness continues to be highly debated. There are several theories ranging from "mind consciousness is developed by the physical brain," to "mind consciousness develop the physical brain" to "the physical brain and mind consciousness develop simultaneously." Recent discovery of quantum vibrations in microtubules inside brain neurons corroborates a controversial 20-year-old theory of consciousness--which claimed that consciousness derives from deeper-level, finer-scale activities inside brain neurons. According to review authors, EEG rhythms (brain waves) may also derive from deeper level microtubule vibrations, and that from a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions.
