    There is one common denominator that all forms of sentient organism share, other than pure chemistry and that is microtubules. All Eukaryotic organisms have them and use them for data processing .

    See consciousness in microtubules in pseudoscience subforum,

    IMO, that alone suggests that MT are an essential part of living organisms, from single celled bacteria to humans, else natural selection would almost certainly have eliminated them from some living and/or sentient patterns.

    it ends up taking over the ship .. almost
    salt based
    and self propagates through light
    but also communicates with light(not sure if thats a conflict)

    it is as i recall a mineral light electric based life form
    living in a highly salinated layer very deep i the planets surface

    so the part of the light confuses me
    unless they produce light & so the light helps it propagate as a reproductive cycle exchange
    which would explain it self propagating in high light scenarios

    i know they smash these science things out in their script rooms to make sure they have solid science behind them

    it might have been thought up to represent a brain concept as a living entity

    removing all the biological compound and leaving just the minerals and water

    the episode is in the next generation
    crew member data investigates ... ends up being locked in the laser drill room where the life form trys to attack him with the laser drill and he destroys the laser drill after it has killed 1 or 2 other people who were mining on the planet
    jordi deciphers the language with his optical array implant
    during which they discover the entity which is a socialist organism of many members
    declares war on humans because it believes war has been declared on it as the terraforming laser drillers have killed many of their species(how true this would be to real human space exploration)

    it turns out the mining colony manager had suspected it was life but decided to keep mining anyway

    they were a forward science party expected to terraform the planet

    if rough memory serves

    the star trek crew transport a part of it into their science lab where it grows then starts to take over the ship
    they manage to establish communication and discuss the situation and then teleport it back to the surface and evacuate the remaining mining crew

    after that everything gets a little foggy as one episode bleeds into the other in my memory

    star trek next generation
    ship is called to check in on a terraforming mining operation

    Okay. As far as I can tell, that has nothing to do with the topic of this thread, or with microtubules, or with the "mathematical universe". A topic for its own thread, perhaps.
    You're missing the obvious fact that the question of whether microtubules play any role at all in consciousness is very much up for debate. You seem to think the matter is settled.
    I haven't seen you post anything from a reputable source that supports you notion that microtubules are "dynamic processors" of "sensory data", that they "store memory" or "translate EM data" in any way.

    All of those claims appear to me to be your own fevered imagingings.
    Then it should be easy for you to link me to where you proved the ones you just referred to. Go for it.
    All your posts about the role of microtubules in consciousness are speculations. So are all your posts in which you support Tegmark's speculative ideas about the "mathematical universe". So are all your posts that speak highly of Bohm's "implicate orders" and all that stuff. All of these ideas are speculative and unproven - both by yourself and by the people who originally proposed them.
    Maybe they are. What's for sure is that nobody - not them and not you - has shown they are right. Get it?
    This stuff fills the approximately the same role for you that religion fills for Christians.
    No. Your beliefs speculate far beyond where the facts get us to.
    No. It would be false to claim that anybody knows that.
    Clearly. That is not in dispute.
    Tegmark has not suggested a specific neural pattern for consciousness, as far as I am aware. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

    I take it that your issue with moderation is now resolved. I suggest you post about microtubules and the like in the threads dedicated to those topics. You seem to have reverted to wanting to discuss your pet topics now.
