As I was reading some information on Quantum Mechanics, I came across the following statement: (http://www.thekeyboard.org.uk/Quantum mechanics.htm) From this, several questions arose, but I'll only share a few. If indeed nothing is real until it is observed, and something must exist outside the universe in order for it to exist, doesn't this lead to an infinite regress? Something must exist to observe that which observes our universe, something must then exist to observe what observes that which observes our universe and so on. If this is not the case, does it mean that this concept of observation and reality only applies in our universe? As for John Wheeler's take on the issue, doesn't postulating that the only reason the universe exists is that we are here to observe it pose an issue about how the universe began? If it only exists because we observe it, could it ever have been created considering we were created inside of it? I appreciate any feedback.
