Large scale quantum affects like these are the final nail in the coffin of determinism. If Roger Penrose and Stuart Kauffman are to be believed, and human consciousness is a result of the collapse of a large scale quantum wave function then free will is also assured. I suspect we are going to find larger and larger scale quantum behaviors. Very exciting stuff!
