Since the beginning of scientific thoughts in more than two thousand years ago, ordinary experience and intuition were the basis for explaining the world around us. However, as technology improved and the range of observable phenomena expanded, our eyes are opened to a nature that is increasingly less in line with everyday experience and fundamentals of classical science. Quantum mechanics, a new discipline, is formed base on new findings to explain the unexplained. Quantum mechanical universe is fundamentally different from our classical perception of the world. To reconcile the two, we must either question quantum mechanics or review the act of perception itself. Century-old experiments have proven the validity of quantum theory. In fact, quantum mechanics is by far the most precise and reliable science that humans have ever grasped. Therefore, in order to resolve the incompatibility, it is reasonable to turn to an assessment of perception itself.
The brain is our main tool for examining  physical reality, so in order to determine the validity of our perceptions, it makes sense to begin with a study of our brain’s physiology, and in particular how the brain perceives sensory stimuli.

Perception and quantum mechanics

In the article, the brain lateralization theory and modern understanding of perception formation is explained. The contradictions between classical physics and quantum mechanics are also reviewed. A new way to look at the inconsistencies between quantum mechanical and classical physics is offered, based on recent understanding of brain physiology.
