Science Fiction – Biological Quantum Mechanics?

28 01 2013

There’s an intriguing little article about biology and quantum mechanics here …

What gets me is that we humans use quantum mechanics to help with our sense of smell. Hold on a mo… don’t cats and dogs have a better sense of smell? Does that mean they use more quantum mechanics than we do? Should we have a chart of how much biological entities use quantum mechanics as a measure? Would Schroedinger’s be the top dog?

And is this another aspect of science that science fiction has not predicted?

If so, I’m starting to wonder if there is a gap in science predictions from science fiction. It must have occurred after what they call the golden age of the 40s and 50s… and after the first Star Trek series with all its gadgets in the late 60s….

…and yet we have the scientists and entrepreneurs searching science fiction for new ideas on what to develop next…

..questions, Questions, QUESTIONS…
