Excellence Reporter: Dr. Hameroff, what is the meaning of life?
Stuart Hameroff: The meaning of life is to feel good by resonating with the universe.
In the view I take on the nature of consciousness with Sir Roger Penrose, feelings are related to quantum processes in the fundamental structure of spacetime geometry, including pleasurable processes which drove evolution. Brain activities resonating with pleasurable quantum processes guide our actions, including hedonistic, altruistic, and/or spiritual experiences and behaviors.
Life is about resonating with the universe.
