    Keep in mind, I have no personal interest in ESP. In fact, I cannot think
    of a single instance in my life where I think that I might have experienced
    it or something like it. Up to now at least, I have been inclined to
    suspect that the majority (probably all) of the ESP claims are bunk.

    The main point I was making was that we shouldn't have to wait for a
    fully function 20k register quantum computer to decide if Deutches'
    idea is true. I think the human mind itself should already show signs
    of this, at least assuming that the mind has even a small and fleeting
    number of QM registers.

    Thanks much for the references!

    By Grace alone we proceed,
