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?

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.
