My personal belief is that there is, at some level, physical evidence of thought creating matter; Or even observation collapsing wavelengths into

with reality on a sub-atomic and quantum level.
You are of course right and there are schools of thought which interpret the observations in quantum physics in exactly that way.
The "problem" and paradox here is that we try to "observe" something which is not observable out of the context of the human brain and how it works.
It's the classic example of trying to get to find "the truth" behind something - to realize that this "truth" can only be that sort of "truth" we *are
able to* perceive.... and an example where a materialistic view ("THINGS ARE") is entirely in contrast to the idea that some reality might maybe
created (or changed) by thought/observation alone etc.
So...meaning..that a statement like "something IS"...say the "speed" or position of an electron...or "length of a wave" but then of course even
broader in a more general sense ("something IS") literally loses its meanings..
The funny thing here, of course it would also be paradox to use those observations as "proof" that we now see how, for example, thoughts might create
reality. Because this as well would be a statement how "something is"...which is paradox since we just learned that we cannot use those absolutes.
So..saying "the electron is at position X around the nucleus at time Y" (which we can't, obviously) makes as much sense as coming to a "conclusion"
that thought influences matter. (If we can't get information, we should not come to a conclusion).
Ok...as for my own, not so professional opinion, I think the problem might have to do with the speed of light and the limit where information just
cannot be transferred anymore.
Let me give you an analogy:
You have a measuring stick with the smallest unit on it being a mm. You can measure things to the meter, centimeter and millimeter. But you can't use
the same measuring stick to measure thickness of a hair (or atom etc.). We try to get "information" from quantum physics experiments, but we already
exceeded the limit to be able to get any information. This would be another scenario - the question here would be is there still an "absolute"
reality, beyond what we can "process".
