a quantum of madness

At the top of the interwebs one finds Scott and his most recent blog post. The only problem I have with it is that it encourages me to think about crazy thought experiments and I already know they will not lead anywhere.

Btw I think there is one way to resolve the problem of conscious experience as posed by Scott, but one he would certainly not like: If there is a fundamental reason a large scale quantum computer (i.e. large enough to simulate a human brain) cannot work, perhaps along the lines of Gil Kalai's argument(s), and if the phenomena responsible for such a failure are associated with conscious experience, then every paradox could be resolved imho.
