The full results have been published in Nature Physics. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,” lead researcher and physicist Andrew Truscott said in a press release. independent.co.uk article The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured. Experiment suggests that reality doesn't exist until it is measured By Colin Jeffrey A recent experiment by researchers at ANU into the quantum behavior of particles seems to suggest that reality appears not to exist until it is actually measured (Credit: Australian National University) I will close my eyes and y'all will disappear!! Reality Doesn’t Exist Until We Measure It, Quantum Experiment Confirms. Tuesday, July 21, 2015. But it does not mean the electron’s existence is conditional. But when the second grating was not added, no interference was observed, as if the atom chose only one path.

And that's exactly what a team from the Australian National University has now found. This experiment was ahead of its time, and not until 40 years later, utilized to its full potential. The question of whether nothing exists until it is observed is more one for philosophy than quantum mechanics; it's the question of whether we can define an objective reality outside of human or even our own individual experience. Not sure if I worded that correctly, but is this in fact true? The probability to be observed on a straight line is something like 10exp1000/10exp1001. It was observed by the ANU team that when the second light grating was not added, there was no interference and the atom chose only one path. “Reality doesn’t exist unless you look at it, and measurements mean everything.” The experiment in question is John Wheeler’s Delayed Choice experiment , first suggested in 1978. But Proietti and co’s result suggests that objective reality does not exist. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it," Truscott said. One of the most bizarre premises of quantum theory, which has long fascinated philosophers and physicists alike, states that by the very act of watching, the observer affects the observed reality.
