I went through a mountain of material leading up to and during the process of writing this book (in both video and written form). When I finished writing it I thought it might be nice to include a selection of the most relevant research material at the end so that readers could delve deeper into some of the concepts explored.
Assuming the reader would want to do so at the close of the novel, of course…
The only problem, obviously, is that we couldn’t add this information to the audio book. Try typing in a URL as it’s dictated to you sometime and you’ll see why.
So, for all of you good people out there who prefer audio as their primary format, here is that list. As noted, the list is not exhaustive to what I originally examined. It is, in my opinion, some of the more approachable material on the subjects presented – this despite the fact that much of the “homogenized” material on quantum computers is still rather lacking…

“The Future of Consciousness: Stuart Hameroff at TEDxTucson”
“How do you explain consciousness? | David Chalmers”
“The scientific pursuit of consciousness: Christof Koch at TEDxRainier”
“Consciousness & the Brain: John Searle at TEDxCERN”
“Quantum Consciousness And its Nature In Microtubules. Dr. Stuart Hameroff”
“A Beginner’s Guide To Quantum Computing, Dr. Talia Gershon”
“We’re Close to a Universal Quantum Computer, Here’s Where We’re At”
“Michio Kaku: Tweaking Moore’s Law and the Computers of the Post-Silicon Era”
“Carbon nanotube optics poised to provide pathway to optical-based quantum cryptography and quantum computing”

“Amazing Robot Controlled By Rat Brain Continues Progress”
“This clever AI hid data from its creators to cheat at its appointed task”
“Twitter taught Microsoft’s AI chatbot to be a racist asshole in less than a day”
Mostly finished, anyway. It’s out for beta-reading, going through editing, yadda-yadda. But I’ve hit the mountain summit. All down-hill from here. Look for it early 2019.
