To begin, I am an avid physics enthusiast and after reading countless books, there are a few questions that pester me in reference to the probability of an electrons location and the 'observer' which changes the electrons location or speed.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand that if you observe the electron, you cannot get an accurate reading, and that if you look at the electron, because it is in a super-position state and is merely a probability, its history does not exist until it is observed.

What then, is doing the observing? Is it human consciousness, photons, or simple matter interactions? Could anyone please explain this to me as simply as possible?
