Dr. Hameroff is a clinical anesthesiologist, who studied how anesthetic molecules selectively erase consciousness via delicate quantum effects on protein dynamics. In the world of physics, however, Dr. Hameroff is mostly famous for his work with Sir Roger Penrose on the quantum theory of consciousness called orchestrated objective reduction (Orch OR). Even though Orch OR is a highly controversial theory, […]

Ok, so it’s been a while since I’ve dug up some good free physics ebooks. So today I would like to share 3 beginner level books on Quantum mechanics. Now by “beginner level” in this case I mean mostly undergrad students. These books cover the basics like wave-particle duality, Schrodinger’s equation, potentials, tunneling and so […]
