Hello, I signed up cause I was going through the Quantum Eraser threads, but couldn't find an answer to my question. It's about this version from 1999/2000 of the elaboration on the classic double slit experiment: Results seem quite straight forward. Wherever we have "path information" the interference pattern collapses into a particle pattern. Wherever "path information" is unavailable, the interference pattern is retained. Hence, von Neumann seems to be vindicated and the act of observation itself collapses reality into a steady state. I'd like to know the current status of this experiment among you guys who are in the know (and unlike me aren't retards in everything to do with math and physics). Does the statements of this video hold up to scrutiny or is this interpretation of the experiment already discarded? Maybe the video is even New Age mumbo jumbo from the outset? Note that "the observer/consciousness creates reality" feature is the only one I'm interested in. I don't care whether the experiment proves some kind of reverse causality or anything, so please leave that out. Also, if anyone feels like replying, it would be great if you could use ordinary English and not mess up the syntax too much. Like stated, I'm a retard and what's worse, I'm gullible too.
