Consciousness is associated with the fine grained "decision making" leading to alternative behaviors within molecular autonomous agents that spans the quantum and classical realms and is identical to the persistent propagation of percolating webbed loops of quantum coherence that simultaneously are persistently losing coherence hence going classical. The passage to classical behavior is identical to "mind" influencing "matter." Consciousness is the inner experience of the agent of this percolating web of persistent coherence decohering into classical behavior.
