This means the brain doesn't follow the rules for the classical properties of matter, like a computer. Instead, it follows a new concept of matter altogether that leaves cracks for consciousness and intuition to appear. Now, the Oxford university professor has invited everyday puzzle enthusiasts to pit their wits against the problem to test his theory.
