Pioneering work into Very Large Scale Integration VLSI and the theory of computation reveals a new revolution. Quantum physics is essential to the understanding of deuces with two stable states and to how theoretically, classical Turing computation is physically possible. Furthermore, completely novel quantummechanical computational devices utilizing dimensional confinement can be made similar mechanisms may well exist in natural biological systems and brains. Shows that this new quantummechanical perspective yields the basis for a model of conscious machinery, with correspondingly well defined processes specifying the nature of perception, cognition and information, for which as yet computer science has no agreed definitions.
