I just don't understand the connection of how my reality effects the outcome of something that I didn't interfere with, only observed. There are a billion analogies, but I'm missing something.
The idea that we can observe something without interacting with it is a complete farce. Observers are part of the universe, they don't watch over it. Their constituency is made up from the same material as the material they wish to observe.

I am always stunned to hear people who seem knowledgeable and rational about the laws of nature to completely choke on the idea that there is no such thing as an independent measurement.
