HIERARCHIC MODEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS:
FROM MOLECULAR BOSE CONDENSATION
TO SYNAPTIC REORGANIZATION

The electrical recording of human brain activity demonstrate a coherent (40 to 70 Hz) firing among widely distributed and distant brain neurons (Singer, 1993). Such synchronization in a big population of groups of cells points to possibility of not only regular axon-mediated, but also of physical fields-mediated distant or even quantum nonlocal interaction between them...

The idea of Karl Pribram (Languages of the Brain, 1977) of holographic principles of memory and braining is very popular in quantum models of consciousness. We also support this general idea and try to transform it in concrete shape in our model. In contrast to usual holograms, reflecting the three-dimensional geometric properties of objects in photo materials, the information in the membranes and cytoskeleton of nerve cells is encoded in the form of our effectons and deformons, introduced in our Hierarchic theory of condensed matter (Kaivarainen 1995; 2000a)...

Microtubules are hollow cylinders, filled with water. Their internal diameter about din 140 and external diameter dext 280...

Microtubules sometimes can be as long as axons of nerve cells, i.e. tenth of centimeters long. Microtubules (MT) in axons are usually parallel and are arranged in bundles. Microtubules associated proteins (MAP) form a "bridges", linking MT and are responsible for their interaction and cooperative system formation. Brain contains a big amount of microtubules...
