The Observer Problem Part IV Interpretations. Is the moon up there when we are not looking?. Overview. QM suggests that the observer/experimenter has an effect on the observed. The observer may even change the past as suggested by the so-called delayed choice experiment.

Measuring one of a complementarity pair features of an object disturbs the system such that the other feature acts bizarre.
objects visible by naked eye.
it virtually never decays.
1/ The world is in a classical state. Superposition of states of quantum mechanics is wrong.
2/ The world is in quantum superposition of states, Observers actually reduce it to one classical state.
3/ The world exists is in superposition of states. The observer perceives just one state.
4/ There is a common phenomenon shared by all observers which leads to the progression of state reductions and evolution of the universe.
Physics is not concerned with how nature is, it talks about what we can say about nature.
Shut up and Calculate
There is no super-position.
There is just one process, no need to divide it to wave or particle.
The process is governed by quantum potential.
Humans are physical objects who are influenced by quantum potential and influence it as well.
Our mental processes create our own realities.
Is consciousness a separate entity from what we call physical domain?
They take science as strictly objective and real. Do you?
Is experimenter part or apart from experiment result?
There are so many unknowns. However, bizarre things maybe happening which is beyond or current logic and understanding
In the double slit experiment, we can choose to see interference or a band.
In the entanglement experiment, we choose the polarization axis of a far away particle.
Are we robots?
Are we governed by the neurochemistry of
Are we governed by the quantum potential?
Isn’t free will our intuition?
Determinism of classical physics denies
free will. Uncertainty of QM allows it.
But QM randomness denies it again.
simple, well defined and testable.
chemistry comes to the picture,
as organisms belong to biology.
A conscious observer must be in either one state or the other, hence consciousness is not material in origin.
