In accordance to our Hierarchic Model of Consciousness (HMC), each specific kind of neuron ensembles excitation -corresponds to hierarchical system of three-dimensional (3D) standing waves of following interrelated kinds: -thermal de Broglie waves (waves B), produced by unharmonic translations

Corresponding hierarchic system of 24 excitations, describing virtually all the properties of any condensed matter, can be generated by quantum transitions of the coherent water clusters, localized in cytoplasm and in the microtubules of neurons bodies. Most important primary collective excitations in form of coherent clusters are resulted from high-temperature molecular Bose-condensation of water (see Appendix). We assume in our model the existence of feedback reaction between the following hierarchy of phenomena, representing interrelation of quantum microscopic, mesoscopic and nonlinear macroscopic events: a) hologram-like superposition of four types of 3D waves, listed above; b) correlated MTs orientations, responsible for volume and geometry of cells body in the tuned ensembles of neurons; c) quantity and distribution of synaptic contacts on the surface of the nerve cells bodies, dependent on geometry of cells. It is assumed in our model that [gel→sol] transitions in cytoplasm of neuron's body, produced by collective disassembly of big number of actin filaments and microtubules, as a consequence of nerve excitation and neuron's body depolarization, -is accompanied by its volume and shape "pulsation". The twisting of centrioles in cells to orientation, corresponding to maximum energy of the MTs distant interaction by means 3D electromagnetic and vibro-gravitational waves -is an important stage of the excited neurons dynamic adaptation to each other. Such adaptation becomes possible only in low viscosity -[sol] state of cytoplasm. As a result of cell's volume/shape pulsation, induced by reversible osmotic equilibrium change, the distribution of synaptic contacts on the surface of cells and/or ionic channels activity -change. These changes provide the long-term and short-term memory correspondingly. The synaptic redistribution is determined by MTs spatial reorientations and changes of their length. The processing of huge number of such "informational acts as MTs -dependent synaptic rearragements", accompanied by emergency of new states of neuron ensembles and hologram-like fields, is responsible for consciousness and braining. The mechanism proposed needs the existence of feedback reaction between following stages of HMC: a) simultaneous depolarization of big enough number of neurons, forming ensemble, accompanied by opening the potential-dependent channels and increasing the concentration of Ca 2+ in cytoplasm of neurons body; b) collective disassembly of actin filaments and MTs, accompanied by [gel →sol] transition of big group of depolarized neurons due to their destruction by Ca 2+ − activated proteins like gelsolin and villin; c) strong decreasing of cytoplasm viscosity and disjoining of the (+) ends of MTs from membranes, making possible the spatial redistribution of MTs orientations, corresponding to maximum resonance exchange interaction of MTs by means of IR photons and vibrogravitational waves in simultaneously excited group of neurons; d) volume/shape pulsation of neuron's body and dendrites, inducing reorganization of ionic channels activity and synaptic contacts in the excited neuron ensembles. These volume/shape pulsations occur due to reversible decrease of the intracell water activity and corresponding swallow of cell as a result of passive osmotic diffusion of water from the external space. The probability of actin filaments and MTs disassembly and [gel→sol] transition can be enhanced not only by the Ca 2+ concentration increasing, but also by cavitational fluctuations, stimulated by superdeformons and macroconvertons in accordance to our Hierarchic theory of matter. Our model predicts that if the neurons or other cells,
