Fantasic Q! The dual nature of light of wave/particle means that a light wave emenating from outer-space 'collapses' into a particle when observed in our eyes. Darkness is lightness un-observed?
"What is the sound of one hand clapping?" = that's easy! A slap across the face! (backhanded?)
My question: IIf excactly 100 light waves left a light bulb into a room - how come the light does not get dimmer with the more observers are in the room?
How come a light bulb doesn't get dimmer when there is a 100 eyes receiving the particle impact as opposed to just one eye?
"Niels Bohr argued that the collapse was caused by the act of observation itself and proposed that in quantum mechanics there is no longer a distinction between the thing observed and the observer. This is probably one of the most unfortunate ideas ever put forward in physics and many are still entangled in it. They wonder for example what exactly causes this supposed collapse of the wave: is it the consciousness of the observer or the contact to any "macroscopic object" (whatever that means)? Ideas such as the Schr?dinger cat were invented to emphasize the paradoxical consequences of Niels Bohr idea."
