"Consciousness and the Collapse of the Wave Function": Presentations
## "Consciousness and the Collapse of the Wave Function": Presentations

Our article "Consciousness and the Collapse of the Wave Function", by David Chalmers and Kelvin McQueen, is due to be published in the volume *Quantum Mechanics and Consciousness*, edited by Shan Gao, forthcoming from Oxford University Press most likely in 2020.
We presented versions of this work starting in August 2013 and
circulated slides for these presentations. These versions have been
widely cited and differ from the final version, so we have included
here some links to the older presentations.

The slides were made available online and widely circulated. A
text was not widely circulated until 2019 (aside from McQueen's brief
popular piece in *Philosophy Now*), mainly because we did not
have a good enough answer to the problem arising from the Quantum Zeno
Effect. Eventually we wrote a separate paper on the Zeno problem
("Zeno Goes to Copenhagen") and we developed a speculative solution to
the problem (one in terms of ongoing collapse by localization of
m-properties, an idea briefly entertained at the end of the original
presentation in 2013) in the final version of "Consciousness and the
Collapse of the Wave Function".
