Bird brains, quantum biology, today's big idea

New evidence suggests that body-temperature quantum entanglement in birds can leave them in an altered chemical state that they can sense. Thus equipped, they manage the migratory route by "seeing" the Earth's magnetic field. Entangled states have also seem to be a by-product of photosynthesis.

This is news.

Should these ideas prove out, they have implications for how we think of life. I wonder, for example, how coauthor of the book Biocentrism, astronomer and IF'09 speaker Bob Berman might address the suggestion that "nature seems to have created the conditions in which entanglement thrives" in the second link above.
