This is a work in progress. This paper seeks to establish whether that quantum mechanics is compatible or not with moderate versions of dualism about the metaphysics of the mind. § 1 argues that, due to the Koshen--Specker theorem, quantum objects are incomplete objects regarding context-dependent properties, and that ---in a specific interpretation of quantum mechanics--- the transition from metaphysical incompleteness to completeness happens due to the interaction with conscious minds. § 2, then, will discuss the dependence between mind and matter in the context of building relations, and § 3 focuses on if there are metametaphysical lessons to be learned (and what are them) concerning the moderate dualist metaphysics of mind and their connections with quantum mechanics.
