It is always unwise to attempt to write about things one knows practically nothing about, and sadly this article merely proves an old point once again. The author seems to understand nothing of physics, neuroscience, or in fact anything else germane to her argument. Astonishingly, she seems ignorant of the fact that Schrodinger's famous cat was invented by him precisely in order to show how absurd the "uncollapsed wave function" notion is, not as a "profound" insight into the mysterious realm of the quantum world. Every other example cited is likewise mistaken. It's easy to get a pop version of science; it is however important to understand that pop accounts and facts rarely if ever coincide.
