RE: What if qualia are noncomputable and necessary?

Qualia in my opinion is just a quirk of our sensory mechanisms and our
limited introspection ability. I think it is as computable as most other
brain qualities and thus this discussion is not interesting to me.

This isn't to rule out a role for quantum computation in the brain but to
say that it is not uniquely necessary in the phenomena of qualia.

An interesting page on Qualia:
