Stuart Hameroff, a medical doctor specializing in anesthesiology, knew that Van der Waals- London forces in hydrophobic pockets of various neuronal proteins had been proposed as the mechanisms by which anesthetic gases selectively erase consciousness. Anesthetics bind by their own London force attractions with electron clouds of the hydrophobic pocket, presumably impairing normally-occurring London forces governing the protein switching required for consciousness.  Laszlo Institute.
