New evidence that plants get their energy using quantum entanglement

Not proof of quantum consciousness, but it does show that quantum events can happen in nature and have
been selected for via evolution.

The vibrations in question are periodic motions of the atoms within a molecule. It's similar to how an object moves when it's attached to a spring. Sometimes, the energy of two vibrating chromophores match the energy difference between the electronic transitions of chromophores. The result is a coherent exchange of a single quantum of energy.

"When this happens electronic and vibrational degrees of freedom are jointly and transiently in a superposition of quantum states, a feature that can never be predicted with classical physics," explained study co-author Edward O'Reilly.

Here's a nice presentation by Quantum Computing Scientist Seth Lloyd addressing this subject matter of "Quantum Life" in a more comprehensive fashion:

Jim Al Khalili has also given some lectures on this subject. Unfortunately Al Khalili occasionally goes out of his way during his talks to label anyone who synthesizes these ideas with concepts from parapsychology, etc. as a "nut-job" or "crank".
