This is a theory ive come up with based on electrons. In a study of electrons in a double slit expirement electrons behaved as expected when projected through them, but when a device was added to monitor the travel path they seemed to know and they behaved differently. As if they knew they were being watched. Also I was speaking to someone taking a physics course who said electrons in matter dissapear for a brief moment in their path. Now if we used this device to monitor electrons in matter, would we change other dimensions or matter, or just alter the behavior of the electron?

Electrons like all matter exist only as information in the mind. Once you understand this it the strange behaviour of reality makes a lot more sense.

It's nothing new. All that happens is that when an electron is measured it's probability wave collapses. The electron will therefor behave as a particle and you get the standard particle pattern on your detector. If you don't measure the particle it continues to be in a quantum state of uncertainty. It's probability wave therefore travels through both slits and therefore interference is seen on the detector.

Unless a particle is in a quantum state measuring it will have no effect on it.

Electrons can not disapear I don't know who told you that? It is just not possible to measure one without changing it's state. So we can't know 'where it is' if we know it's speed and direction. The act of measuring it causes it's probability wave to collapse.

If you think this is cool - try looking into the double slit quantum eraser experiment. This shows that electrons can see into the future. This is proven by deciding AFTER the experiment is completed to either keep or throw out the route information for the electrons. Depending on that decision, the result of the already completed experiment will be either a particle pattern or a wave pattern.

I would think in order to obtain observation on physical matter some type of frequency would have to emitted and then retrieved by the device "recording" said pysical matter.

Therefore, the frequency would alter the "behavior" of the matter.

Just a thought, feel free to debate upon.

That wouldn't work because the matter in question is not in a quantum state. Effectively you are describing an ultrasound machine, and we know how they work. Or ground penetrating radar too. Both of these systems emit a frequency which penetrates matter, and then receives it back to record the make up of the matter. In no circumstances does this make any change to the matter being scanned.
