I appreciate your interest in the subject. All I can do is give you my understanding, probably somewhat limited, but nonetheless I will continue.
It is easy to get confused with the idea of quantum consciousness, especially since it is fringe science. Some people would argue that it isn't any type of science at all. I will admit that this is a difficult argument to overcome.
The problem of consciousness has been round for thousands of years. Basically, I think we can now look at it in terms of three possibilities.
(a) Consciousness exists within the brain. In order to understand consciousness we only need to understand the brain.
(b) Consciousness exists outside the brain. Consciousness interacts with the physical brain.
(c) Consciousness exists both inside and outside of the brain. There is a continual interaction between the two types of consciousness.
I might be possible to say that quantum mechanics points to (c) being correct. It is by no means a scientific fact, it is just a pointer to a possibility.
Quantum consciousness exists as a type of proto-consciousness that is non-local. It is information that exists at the most fundamental level of the universe. People such as Hameroff would say this information cannot be destroyed and as such is retrievable.This would fit in with a quantum explanation. Hameroff would describe this information, or data as qualia. In other words,it is experience that exists without a subject to do the experiencing.
I think this has massive problems and perhaps it could be overcome by introducing the human mind as possessing knowledge. Both knowledge and information interacting may go some way in solving the problem. The problem still is that information and knowledge are inadequate to explain intelligence. It is possible to explain how and why a human is intelligent, but at this stage it is not possible to explain how an universe is intelligent.
