Hi, I am pretty sure I am not qualified to be here. I had to look up the registration question 'what is the W in W= fx'...so if this is too ignorant a question just let me know and I will slither away I just started poking into the general QP subject and so far have not seen an answer to two questions that keep popping into my head: 1) The act of "observing" an electron causes it to change from a possibility (anywhere in the wave) to a specific locatable particle right? What I keep wondering is, if high energy equipment is needed to do the measurement, could it not be that the measuring equipment itself is changing the equation and effecting the particle? In the discussions I have observed on this, the implication seems to be that it is the act of observation by an intelligent being that is changing wave to a specific particle/location, not the physical machinery doing the measurement..which is it? And if we say its the "observer" that is causing this, how can we be sure the measurement process is not the culprit? 2) Assuming that question one's answer is that the observer is causing the change, has this phenomenon ever been observed on larger objects? Sorry again for my ignorance here, and let me know if this is just too simple for your discussion group. Thanks!
