Tubulins within microtubules Vishnu's cosmic egg of creation
Top: Two states of tubulin in which a single quantum event (electron localization) within a central hydrophobic pocket is coupled to a global protein conformation. Switching between the two states can occur on the order of nannoseconds to picoseconds.

Bottom: Tubulin in quantum coherent superposition of both states.

Floating within the cosmic golden egg, the Hindu god Vishnu rests against Ananta, the many-headed serpent of internal linkinfinite time, before initiating the creation of a new universe in this eighteenth century Indian gouache. 

According to myth, the universe is constantly created and destroyed; before each successive creation, Visnhu's navel sprouts a internal linklotus flower, from which the god himself emerges in his incarnation as Brahma, source of new life. Brahma breaks open the egg, thus beginning another cycle of rebirth and destruction.

The representation of a localized self is derived from a construction path with signal integration by superposition of internal states onto a particle-like structure. This has been described by molecular automaton theory, in particular by the microsite ion channel model (Arhem, 1996).

The advantage of a quantum-mechanical system for generation of the self arises from its non- local quality and ability to determine the internal linkevolution   of a system as a whole (Stapp, 1995). The dilemma is that this system only works non-locally as long as it does not come to a decision by  collapse of the internal linkwave function or decoherence. internal linkPerceptions in our mind, however, are decisions on spatiotemporal states. Accordingly, any representation group of the neuron is strictly classical and local. We will again encounter the previously discussed inconsistency arising from an irreducible mental state, this time described by a coherent internal linkquantum-mechanical operation, and its attempted correlation with a reducible neural state. The resolution of this dilemma is attempted by a "internal linkfractal  approach" to the structure of consciousness.

Dendrites and Microtubules
internal linkDendrites in relation to Microtubules

A fractal or self-similar structure contains the construction principle of the whole in each part.  Any path mapping the self onto subspaces inevitably entails a correlation to a proportionally downscaled whole. By iterative affine transformation, a fractal construction operates on distinct elements (Dubois, 1997). This renders a fractal local by operation and non- local by representation. A substrate for a fractal structure may be composed of coherent membrane lipid arrays surrounding ion channel proteins. Interestingly, these lipid lattices are affected by ion distribution and undergo extended coherence just in a narrow range around mammalian body temperature. This renders the system resistant to decoherence by heat-invasion (Becker and Rahmann, 1995; Perillo et al., 1994). The fractal model could be a supplementation to the microtubule theory. We may think of a multi-layer or sandwich model for the generation of consciousness: The outer layer is constituted by the neuronal cell membrane and works as "fractal internal linkantenna" for ion internal linkflux excited by action potentials. The inner layer is composed of a multi-microtubular internal linknetwork underneath the membrane and houses the self. An internal linkinterface between both layers may be given by an internal linkelectromagnetic field generated by ion fluctuations. This field modulates the  microtubular internal linkquantum mechanics and entangles it with coherent lipid arrays in the cell membrane. The multi-layer theory would smoothly integrate field, microsite, and microtubule model.
