My understanding of quantum superposition is that a wave-collapse occurs via observation BUT in regards to measuring the particle, NOT necessarily observing it in some way via our consciousness. However, in some articles, the implication is that CONSCIOUSNESS itself is the CAUSE of the wave-function collapse and NOT necessarily the act of measuring where the particle is located (i.e., one not need measure anything, just “observe” the state of the particle via some thought process alone). I don’t know too much about quantum mechanics, so I’d like to get more information about this. If consciousness along can collapse this wave, via thoughts alone, and make a particle stable, then it’s akin to paranormal phenomena. I hope someone can explain this to me. Thanks.
