I have a question thats been buggin me as ive built an interest in what kind of part does consciousness play in quantum mechanics. My question is if anyone has conducted the Double slit experiment, in a way that the measuring device(s) at the slits (that determine which slit it goes through) were functioning normally but without recording any data from them, as to ensure that any information was not known about the position of the photons? Does the waveform collapse in this scenario? Does the waveform collapse because of the measuring device(s) interfere some how with the experiment or bc theres an observation been made about the position of the photon? Please share if theres any other modifications of the experiment that try to determine "what counts as observation" in the waveform collapse scenario.
