This shows that choice is a fundamental property of the universe. Like digital physics or Seth Lloyd who thinks the universe is a quantum computer says, everything is 1's and 0's. Everything begins and ends with choice.
In physics, the quantum eraser experiment is a double-slit experiment that demonstrates several laws of quantum mechanics, including wave-particle duality, which seeks to explain certain wave and particle properties of matter, complementarity, and the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, which outlines the idea that, in quantum mechanics, to gain an accurate measurement of one aspect of certain experimental subjects is to lose precision in its counterpart (much like attempting to view both sides of a coin at once). The experiment also utilizes a special crystal for its ability to produce photon pairs from a single photon and the use of an interferometer to explore the wave-like nature of an object.
