This has been around for about 20 years, when Roger Penrose proposed it, 
and later Stuart Hameroff, an anesthesiologist, became aware of it, and 
developed it further.
Hameroff has been hammered by physicists, because they see the brain as 
too wet and noisy for quantum vibrations; and by neuroscientists who are 
protecting their theories, which are no where near explaining 
consciousness, which they call the "hard problem." Scientists shutter 
when someone proposes that consciousness is universal.
