Wave Function Collapse (Part 1)

Here is a nice explanation of WAVE FUNCTION COLLAPSE, a concept from Quantum Mechanics,

Is Consciousness the ultimate wave?

Is Self the collapse of consciousness wave function?

Is Thought the collapse of self wave function?

Is Reality the collapse of thought wave function?

Is Physical universe the collapse of reality wave function?

The ultimate observer or looker is, of course, Unknowable. 🙂

Like the last digit of the decimal rendition of pi.

Because neither exists as we know existence.


Added October 28, 2012:


What is there before manifesting may only be speculated upon. Speculation then manifests.

So all manifesting may simply be preceded by speculation or visualization.

The assumption in the following video is that electrons are like little balls. This assumption is incorrect. Electrons are waves that are simply quite substantial. As far as “observer” goes, they have an instrument there, whose electric field interferes with the experiment. Please see,

    In response to Chris:


    Yes, the TV Snow Experiment is a good demonstration of how the desire shapes what one sees. Ordinary food may appear delicious. Ordinary woman may appear to be the most beautiful in the world.

    I believe that it is layers upon layers of appearances that this universe is made up of. Lot of these layers we share in common. Looking being done by science has been dissolving these layers for many of us.

    Looking and education are the two most important endeavors today, in my opinion.

    I know it is somehow circular or fractal, but I seem to be missing the connection.

    What is a field?

    Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia:

    In physics, a field is a physical quantity associated with each point of space-time… a field can be either a classical field or a quantum field, depending on whether it is characterized by numbers or quantum operators respectively… The field creates a “condition in space” so that when we put a particle in it, it feels a force… “The fact that the electromagnetic field can possess momentum and energy makes it very real… a particle makes a field, and a field acts on another particle, and the field has such familiar properties as energy content and momentum, just as particles can have”.

    What are quantum operators?

    To me, these operators allow one to look at a physical state from a different viewpoint.

    From Wikipedia:

    In physics, an operator is a function acting on the space of physical states. As a result of its application on a physical state, another physical state is obtained, very often along with some extra relevant information.

    The simplest example of the utility of operators is the study of symmetry. Because of this, they are a very useful tool in classical mechanics. In quantum mechanics, on the other hand, they are an intrinsic part of the formulation of the theory… The mathematical description of quantum mechanics is built upon the concept of an operator.
