Gary is watching the sunshine advance through the trees.
What IS the opposite of “shadows recede”? Encroaching illumination?
Need to know: Penrose calc says our Sun may be sentient, “Orch OR with large E.”
Penrose observed that interiors of neutron stars may have huge quantum superpositions which would reach OR with very large E, brief t and high intensity. By Orch OR criteria such events would indeed be conscious. But because the conditions are presumably random, such conscious moments would lack cognitive information processing: OR without Orch. Similarly, OR conscious moments without cognition may be occurring in various crystal-like, large scale quantum materials throughout the universe.
