Hi Shinji, do you have a link to that experiment they are planning?
In response to the statement about the space probe, the pictures sent back are observed and measured , observation occurs at the moment the pictures
are viewed, just as in the double slit experiment (as has been mentioned really).
The polygon clip explanation is better than what i was trying to say, more succinct - but with the polygon clip analogy and the analogy i was making,
its not necessarily that things dont exist at all I think, but rather that they exist as a probablility, as undefined. Probablility is a funny
concept, because it can both exist and not exist simultaneiously. The kicker for me is that I actually believe that everything is conscious, just not
to the same degree. Im not so much into the god/creator as guaranteer of existence bit because i tend to think that the "creator" would coincide
with the sum total of existence, All That Is. I suspect that quanta are actually nothing more than small packets of awareness, and that uncertainty
is an expression of the fact that these small packets are actually choosing their paths. Our higher level perceptions of a coherent "reality" are
superimposed onto conscious wave quanta, which then make small choices in response to observation, which, taken over a (very)large average sum,
appears to us as what we like to call reality . Its not so much that things dont exist, but that they exist in relation to everything else that
exists. Liebnitz (the co-creator of calculus along with Newton) believed in a similar theory of "windowless monads" or atoms that were conscious.
