Biological information processing, storage, and transduction are theorized to occur by "computer-like" transfer and resonance among subunits of polymerized cytoskeletal proteins: microtubules. Biological information functions (ciliary and flagellar control, axoplasmic transport, conscious awareness) could be explained by comparing microtubule structure and activities to Boolean switching matrices, parallel computers, and such technologies as transistor circuits, magnetic bubble memory, charge transfer devices, surface acoustic wave resonators, and/or holography.
