Yes, if we don´t know what slit it goes through the particle is in superposition, meaning it is everywhere, and takes every possible path, it goes
through both slits, interferes with itself and creates the wave, or interference pattern.
If we know wich slit it went through there can only be one possibility and the wave of potential collapses.
You could say the universe is a wave of potential and we are making it collapse into matter because we are observing it within our set parameters.
Totally freaky stuff.
