Main Question or Discussion Point
I learned that the moment a wavefunction collapse takes place is a matter of interpretation. So, I suppose the phenomenon 'wavefuntion collapse' is something that has to be witnessed by observation at some point to be able to establish it at all! So my question is: if collapse doesn't actually occur at whichever moment whatsoever, shouldn't we rather speak of a redistribution of probabilities, I mean that at the 'point' of measurement (the interaction of the measuring device with one single particle) the probability of the particle yielding a particular value mixes with the probability of the measuring device measuring a particular value, without any need for the concept of a 'collapse' at any point, for that is an arbitrary assignment? That is: is the probability the particle has the value and that a particular value is measured temporarily narrowed, for it (the wavefuntion) to spread out again? I subquestion would be: what actually is decoherence of the property of a single particle in the environment?
