When a layman like myself hears the term 'Wave function collapse' is brings to mind physical things. A wave of some sort physically getting smaller or shrinking. Obviously that's not what it is but it does sound like it. In reality, if I have it right it's just a fancy way of saying a measurement has been taken and whatever it was that was being measured has been found to have a value (or range of values). But it might as well be called 'measurement function resolution' or even 'monkeyguts'. And by using "loaded" terms (loaded with physical sounding meaning) confusion might accidently arise. This is similar to web programming with the awful term 'cookies'. We all know it's just a file. But you can imagine a discussion that takes the analogy too far, and wanders into things like, if I mix enough dough, and then add chocalate chips, I can create numerous cookies. And someone replies, well it depends on how you bake the cookies and the type of oven you use. Pretty soon you're talking about cooking itself, instead of file operations and data storage. And if you're not careful you come to conclusions about baking, i.e. about the analogy, and not file storage. Is there a possibility of something like that happening in discussing QM and wave function collapse? Discussions and conclusions are stated having to do with the math (the baking as it were) instead of the thing itself, the files or thing being measured.
