Is there a working hypothesis on how consciousness arises?

I know that many debatable theories have been proposed, such as consciousness arising from matter (highly unlikely) and matter arising from consciousness (still debated) but has any quantum physicist proposed a working hypothesis yet?
Sorry I should have been clearer. I mean consciousness at the level of a human, not individual elements or at the cellular level so disregard bacteria etc.

I want to know if there has been a working hypothesis proposed yet, not what it is just where to find it and who came up with it.
