Neither can I, but I think the initial slamming of
this idea on this list was premature. Quantum effects
CAN be seen in things larger than elementary
particles. The things just have to be sufficiently
isolated from their environment that they aren't
constantly interacting and their wave functions aren't
constantly collapsing. Can this be said of DNA
molecules inside cells? At first, I thought not, but
I'm beginning to think that the idea is farther from
"totally hare-brained" than it is from "brilliant".
