This is an interesting response but seems to have confused two different approaches to quantum mechanics. This is, obviously, not a case of someone’s consciousness determining a waveform collapse. Newer alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation actually seem to retain most of the traditional view of physical reality but I’m not up to the level to effectively agree or disagree.

My main point is the possibilities inherent in consciousness existing at some level in all components of this universe as a counter to traditional western materialism. At another level, sentience is a force in the universe that has unique properties. I tend to see this as a product of quantity rather than quality but that is purely a guess without empirical evidence.
