Quantum Entanglement Communications in Molecular Systems and in Neurotransmitter Molecular Arrays Arvydas Tamulis Independent expert of European Commission; tamulis9@gmail.com Self-assembly of molecules in supramolecular bioorganic and minimal cellular systems depend on quantum mechanics laws which induce hydrogen and Van der Waals bondings. The work has been done through modelling based on quantum mechanical time dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT), which also makes it possible to study quantum entanglement in such systems. In the work presented here, quantum entanglement takes the form of a quantum superposition of the active components in synthesized self-assembled and self-replicating living systems [1-3]. Furthermore, the modelling indicates that quantum entanglement occurs between the prebiotic subsystems which enhances the photosynthesis of the combined systems [4, 5]. The enhancement occurs because two additional quantum entangled excited states are created through the simultaneous excitation of the combined system’s two prebiotic kernels or two protocells. The additional photosynthesis made possible by the quantum entanglement potentially provides a selective advantage through an enhancement of usable energy leading to faster growth and self-replication of minimal living cells, which in turn can lead to accelerated evolution. Quantum entanglement communication molecular logical devices were designed which hold promise for use in nano-medicine biorobots to fight molecular diseases such a cancer tumors, and against the new kinds of synthesized microorganisms and nano guns [6-8]. Current research concerns implementation of liquid state quantum information processing based on spatially localized electronic spin in the neurotransmitter stable acetylcholine (ACh) neutral molecular radical. Using TD-DFT quantum calculations we proved that this molecule possesses stable localized electron spin, which may represent a qubit in quantum information processing. The necessary operating conditions for ACh molecule are formulated in self-assembled dimer and more complex systems. The main quantum mechanical research result is that the neurotransmitter ACh systems, which were proposed, include the use of quantum molecular spintronics arrays to control the neurotransmission in neural networks [9-11]. The idea of molecular quantum computing living cloud was described in the short communication on 2002 year [12] and displaced in the website: http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/M/molecular_quantum_computing_cloud.html?fbclid=IwAR1qV_aD_qon5vh4uzaTRW4y6cfF2HrRRLtLW_KVRrbEubK2T_JcoU5WYTw References: 1.
