I’ve been fascinated with the different QM interpretations since I discovered them… but I want to sort of restrict my imagination to more solid ideas. I know about the Double-Slit experiment and that there are many misconceptions about the correct definition of an ‘observer’ and what role the brain plays in all of it but I have a question that I think will clear up the issue for me. I’m looking out of a window at some trees with birds in it and a sidewalk with people walking by. What I want to know is this: Does opening/shutting my eyes have any affect on the wave functions of the objects on the other side of the window? Does the act of ‘looking’ with my eyes collapse wave functions differently than if I were to shut my eyes? Or does QM determine the outcome of events strictly by my body’s mass and position of the mass relative to objects around me in spacetime? I’ll admit that I have trouble grasping the implications of QM. I think that’s the first step toward bettering ones understanding of it... so any help would be appreciated.
