 Quantum Consciousness 
  Unlike the random, "subjective reduction"(SR, or R) of standard quantum theory caused by observation or environmental entanglement, the OR we propose in microtubules is a selfcollapse and it results in particular patterns of microtubuletubulin conformational states that regulate neuronal activities including synaptic functions. 
  When two quantum systems have interacted, their wave functions become "phase entangled"so that when one system's wave function is collapsed, the other system’s wave function, no matter how far away, instantly collapses as well. 
  The nonlocal connection ("quantum entanglement" is instantaneous, independent of distance and implies that the quantum entities, by sharing a wave function, are indivisible.
