In this paper, I explore the link between consciousness and
quantum mechanics. Often explanations that invoke consciousness to help
explain some of the most perplexing aspects of quantum mechanics are
not given serious attention. However, casual dismissal is perhaps unwarranted,
given the persistence of the measurement problem, as well as the
mysterious nature of consciousness. Using data accumulated from experiments
in parapsychology, I examine what anomalous data with respect to
consciousness might tell us about various explanations of quantum mechanics.
I examine three categories of quantum mechanics interpretations
that have some promise of fitting with this anomalous data. I conclude that
explanations that posit a substratum of reality containing pure information
or potentia, along the lines proposed by Bohm and Stapp, off er the best fit
for various categories of this data.
