I think the materialist monists need to aquaint themselves with Wheeler's delayed choice experiment, which upholds the Copenhagen Interpretation of QM, the "difficulties" of which are resolved only by positing a monistic idealist framework (consciousness, not matter is primary).
If you wish to argue against this, you are forced to argue that the human being, as a free will causal agent, is nothing but a "thing" or an "it"

If the photons can be aimed to go through the slits, why can't they be aimed at a certain place on the wall?
