Does consciousness explain quantum mechanics?

Very interesting article. In note the wrap up.

"This line of thinking requires consciousness to be different from all the other physics in the universe. Otherwise, scientists could (and do) argue that consciousness is itself just the sum of various subatomic interactions. If that's the case, there's no end point in the chain of measurement. And if so, then what scientists do in the laboratory really isn't any different from what happens in random gas clouds. While not strictly a physical theory, the concept of consciousness as different and separate from the material universe does have a long tradition in philosophy and theology. However, until someone can figure out a way to test this concept of consciousness as separate from the rest of the physical laws in a scientific experiment, it will have to stay in the realm of philosophy and speculation."

Apply the undeterminable nature of QM to the BB cosmology and origin of the universe :)

It seems there is no reason for anything to exist in the universe today after arising from an area smaller than an electron in the BB cosmology, that science sees and measures today. However, Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton apparently did not think like this, otherwise there would be no heliocentric solar system in astronomy today. No ability to predict any outcome in the solar system to test, or solar eclipses or lunar eclipses, or Galilean moon events at Jupiter.
