On the Gravitization of Quantum Mechanics 1: Quantum State Reduction

This paper argues that the case for “gravitizing” quantum theory is at least as strong as that for quantizing gravity. Accordingly, the principles of general relativity must influence, and actually

Spontaneous Wave Function Collapse with Frame Dragging and Induced Gravity

I impose the Newtonian criteria of inertial frames on the c.o.m.trajectories of massive objects undergoing spontaneous collapse of their wave function. The corresponding modification of the so far

Quantum superposition of molecules beyond 25 kDa

Matter-wave interference experiments provide a direct confirmation of the quantum superposition principle, a hallmark of quantum theory, and thereby constrain possible modifications to quantum

Optomechanics with levitated particles

Optomechanics is concerned with the use of light to control mechanical objects, and trapped mesoscopic particles are the paradigmatic system for studying nanoscale stochastic processes, and have already demonstrated their utility in state-of-the-art force sensing.

Six Subgroups and Extensive Recent Duplications Characterize the Evolution of the Eukaryotic Tubulin Protein Family

Tubulins cannot be used for constructing species phylogenies without resolving their ortholog–paralog relationships, and the many gene duplicates and also the independent loss of the δ-, ε-, or ζ-tubulins suggest that tubulins can functionally substitute each other.

Quantum mechanics in the brain

Does the enormous computing power of neurons mean consciousness can be explained within a purely neurobiological framework, or is there scope for quantum computation in the brain?
