Doubt in the correctness of a proposition is a component of the process of thinking. Since this process is, to a considerable extent, unconscious, it is natural to assume that the phenomenon of doubt already exists on a subconscious level. In a “subconscious” state, we are aware of the presence of doubt, but it is not yet formulated as a proposition. In such a state, we are able in some form to fix the presence of doubt. Then we can realize, with some effort, that this fixation has taken place… 
An idealist theory of ethics
Abstract: Is ethics a problem of science? It is argued that in order to be considered a force to be reckoned with, ethics must be based on or be compatible with the contemporary scientific world
Quantum Phase Stability in Human Cognition
TLDR
The hypothesis, the quantum phase between unresolved cognitive alternatives in a family of similar decision making situations is nearly constant across national, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds of subjects, supplements the quantum model of decision making endowing it with predictive power.
Quantum–Inspired Measure of Behavioral Semantics
TLDR
A measure to quantify strength of semantic relation between two pairs of binary alternatives in cognition of a subject group is proposed and demonstrated by quantifying culture-specific semantic relations between the archetypal living creatures and their qualities.
Quantum Cognitive Triad. Semantic geometry of context representation
The paper describes an algorithm for cognitive representation of triples of related behavioral contexts two of which correspond to mutually exclusive states of some binary situational factor while
Quantum Cognitive Triad: Semantic Geometry of Context Representation
TLDR
An algorithm for semantic representation of behavioral contexts relative to a dichotomic decision alternative that functions as stable cognitive structure at the same time allowing a subject to model probabilistically-variative behavior.

Wave calculus based upon wave logic
A number operator has been introduced based upon the binary (p-nary) presentation of numbers. This operator acts upon a numerical state vector. Generally the numerical state vector describes numbers
