Just to clarify: I only have very rudimentary knowledge of Physics, so please correct me if I am wrong. This thought came to my mind after I discovered some youtube videos and articles on the double slit experiment: AFAIK, if the information of which path the electron takes is obtained, there will be no interference pattern. In my opinion, isn't this similar to how computer program works? This might sound crazy, but the interference pattern might be a glitch of the simulation we are living in. For example, in video games, in order to save computing power, the game only renders the essential information (eg. what's in front of you, current map, etc). In our universe, the electron becomes a wave in order to save computing power. However, once it is observed, or the information of its path is being detected, it turns back into a particle. Just like web browsers only load the websites we are accessing to, but not download every webpage on the world, because that requires too much storage and computing power. Additionally, if you go too fast in a video game, the video game glitches. That's why there are always a limit of how fast you can go in any video games. Unless you use hacks or cheats, the in game characters would never exceed that speed limit, because it would break the game. If we compare that to this world, isn't the speed of light similar to the limit present in video games? You can't go past the speed of light, because if you do, something weird would happen. Again, all these above assumptions are just some random thinking by me, after reading articles and watching videos online. There are certainly errors, please correct me! Thank you!
