No, the problem with that movie is that they misrepresented what the scientists were saying and edited out the thing the scientists meant that negates what the movie was putting forward as truth and scientific. These same scientists can be seen on you tube discussing what they meant and how ticked they are about being misrepresented. The movie is nothing more than sensationalized garbage with the sole intent on SELLING and not on educating.
You can't make things happen with your mind, or by thinking about them. This is not what science says about the observer effect. Not even god damn quantum mechanics says that for crying out loud.
Well the Double Slit experiment says that we can get a particle to act as a wave and act as a particle again, simply by not observing and observing the process.
So it is exactly what quantum mechanics says.
And what do you mean you can't make things happen with your mind? Would you be able to breath, hear, see, love, hate, experience consciousness at all, without your mind?
Would you and your reality exist without your mind or consciousness?
Again, misunderstanding. Look, the observer effect doesn't literally mean a conscious mind doing the observing.
Also, a couple of clicks around in the double slit article itself brings you to the page discussing De Broglie himself and how his model denies the duality of particle/wave.
It's the fact that when the info doesn't reach a conscious mind, the particle acts like a wave, even though it has been detected by a detector.
