The fields of quantum biology and physics are now starting to unite to solve the mysteries associated with the
field of evolutionary biology. One such question is the origination and propagation of consciousness which has
always been ambiguous and in order to understand this concept, many theories have been proposed by several
philosophers and scientists. This review paper agrees with the idea, that evolution is not a random process but
hypothesizes, that its succession was managed by the expanding level of consciousness due to cell division and
cell differentiation. Several theories propose that the cytoskeleton and its proteins are promoters for
consciousness in the brain, which propagates by means of super-conductance. A better correlation of
cytoskeletal evolution and consciousness could help solve the enigma of the origination, propagation and
existence of consciousness. This review is a compilation of theories, evidences and scientific studies which
intends to bring an association between propagation of consciousness and the evolution of the cytoskeleton and
its proteins.
