incomplete identities for all

in the quantum theory of self-consciousness, the collapse of the coherent superposition of the quantum states of the brain-mind creates the subject-object split of the world.  with conditioning, however, certain responses gain in probability when a learned stimulus is presented to the brain-mind.  consciousness identifies with the apparent processor of the learned responses, which is the ego; the identity, however, is never complete.  consciousness always leaves some room for unconditioned novelty.  this makes possible what we know as free will.  p. 202
