I described to her a conversation I was having with "Heartpump" - a WTA member - about the quantum nature of the mind.
Despite their seemingly chaotic nature, feedback automata have a predisposition to stabilize into attractors, which are stable states. Our minds, in order to maintain adaptability in addition to memory/logic functions, would need to "break out" of these stable states. Perhaps it may be taking advantage of quantum unpredictability. This could have naturally evolved in our brains as neuron density increased. Microchips are running into quantum effects today, as chip density increases.
She concluded, "Yes, that's why I dance. It gets me out of my head." She smiled, "Some people call unknowable things God - instead of quantum unpredictability."
