Actually, the act of observation itself is not necessary to destroy the interference pattern. The
of observation is enough. If you shined a light between the screen and the slits, WITHOUT actually observing to see which hole each electron went through, there would be no interference pattern.
Does that not suggest that the method of observation (in this case, the light) is responsible for the discrepancy, NOT the act of observing?
