Dr. Stuart Hameroff has been researching consciousness for the past 35 years. As a clinical anesthesiologist, he has studied how anesthetic gas molecules selectively erase consciousness via delicate quantum effects on protein dynamics. He teamed up with British physicist Sir Roger Penrose to develop a controversial quantum theory of consciousness called orchestrated objective reduction (Orch OR) which connects brain processes to fundamental spacetime geometry.
Recently Hameroff has explored the theoretical implications of Orch OR for consciousness to exist independent of the body, distributed in deeper, lower, faster scales in non-local, holographic spacetime, raising possible scientific approaches to the soul and spirituality.
