Human Cognitive consciousness, in some difficult to define sense is holistic in character. This gives hope that it can finally be explained in ‘quantum’ terms. Classical mechanics, on the other hand, does not naturally accommodate and adequately explain the dynamics of cognitive consciousness. Cognitive consciousness appears to exhibit "quantum" like qualities. However, this realization can come only when we look at the sub-atomic scale of cognitive consciousness where all regular solid structures disappear or dissolve into waves or waves of probabilities. The way we perceive the reality around cognitive consciousness as of now is basically an illusion or ‘perceived reality’. A number of theories propounded in this regard aim to subscribe to the idea of "quantum neurophysics” explaining how the classical world of consciousness can originate from quantum processes inside the human mind/brain. Moreover, by introducing consciousness, one obtains a philosophically elegant resolution of the paradox of quantum measurement which says that ‘probabilistic occurrences in the quantum world can be replaced by definite occurrences when they enter consciousnesses.
In the area of theological (Science of religion) research, following the architect and biomechanics of human brain, one needs to acknowledge the dynamic possibility of exciting, inducing or setting kinetic quantum conscious neurons through the performance of concentration meditation practices, prescribed as ‘SURAT-SHABDA’ yoga in the religion of saints (more precisely in Sant Mat: Radhasoami Faith) for the awakening of a fairly dormant conscious-spiritual dynamics inside a human mind/brain and transforming it into an enlightened quantum brain.
Quantum consciousness can be understood as a Neuro-Spiritual phenomenon which is inseparably associated and in communion with the dynamic Genetic-physical existence of a human being. The present paper postulates a dynamic hypothesis and scientific exploration of quantum consciousness, it’s neural-genetic correlate and the prospect of quantum computation apart from proposing a thrilling prospect of genetic engineering in order to evolve a perfectly compatibility human physical system in communion with the ‘quantum conscious spiritual system’.
