It is one of those days.
One of those days when sleep evades me and I pick up a quantum physics book by Richard Feyman and read through.
The more I read about the double slit experiment, the more the topic becomes dearer and dearer to me over the years. I can’t get enough of it. It eludes me as how man kind can base everything on science when the foundation of science itself is not scientific.
It is like saying ” I know my foundation cannot be proved but all other theorems that most certainly have to be proved are based on my foundation” It just doesn’t make sense.
The experiment that gave rise to this uncertainty is the question what does consciousness have to do with electrons behaving as matter as opposed to waves. Why involve consciousness at all.
It is as though consciousness, just by the mere virtue of being the observer, creates the observed and therefore creates the event.
If there is no observer, the event would not exist, but what is the observer observing and why does it change the very nature of the observed electron ( which is presumably whats light is made of ).
If the observer is creating the event by observing and therefore the matter , then is it possible to create actual results by intending to create them?
What are the larger implications ? Are the laws of classical physics that we take for granted and as irrefutable laws of our belief system, change based on how / whether they are being observed?
I don’t know but , as always, I am in pursuit.
