It's pretty clear that there's quite a lot of "woo" that mingles QM with other unrelated stuff in silly ways. We can all sympathize with Prof Moriarty's frustration against claims of existence of a quantum afterlife
Unfortunately, at the same time, it's not settled wether we need consciousness for quantum effects. Prof. Moriarty in this video seems overly confident about this with his black and white statements while he also admits that "we just don't know" in the opening of the interview. So why drawing ultimate conclusions, dear prof?
Similarly he seems to ignore that quantum effects do "bubble up" to larger scales of reality which also rings another alarm bell... how about smell? Bird's migration, Magnetism! Why not mentioning quantum biology?
Why would it be so bad if consciousness was part of the fundamental elements of nature (if not THE fundamental one)? What's so scary about these concepts that make all "serious" scientists horrify and deny it although if the question isn' even remotely settled?
p.s. = enjoyed the accent of the prof, is there some Irish in there? I am not a native speaker.
