Molecules taking part in photosynthesis can remain entangled even at ordinary atmospheric temperatures, Berkeley, California researchers have found, suggesting the possibility of photosynthetic quantum computers.

Does this support the Hameroff/Penrose idea of quantum computation in brain microtubules as a model of consciousness? – Ed.
