Einstein couldn't wrap his mind around quantum physics, why should we try? Because there are explantations that make sense out of a nonsensical world; because there are perspectives that clarify mysteries; because it is fun!
Observing photons changes their reality?
Observing politicians changes their behavior and changes observers' beliefs.
I've read that the effect of "observation" on quantum systems - the way they seem to change from being in an undetermined state to a definite state, is not a matter of "observing something involves transfer of energy-momentum to it so it changes the system". But I don't remember the details of that.
So it's unlike the politicians :)
Best Grandma Ever!
Oh! by-the-way, I am GREAT-GRANDMA, a 77 year old seeing the world through the eyes of my great-grandchildren. Life doesn't get any better than this. Thanks Humble Pie
A shame Dr. Curie didn't understand radium a little better, though. She might have feared it if she had! ;)
Thanks - I enjoy learning new things - thank you Joan.
