[quote author=“George”]I read the following in New Scientist:
Things get much worse when quantum theory is applied to the entire universe. If the universe is as real as we believe, then it must have been cast into that state by an observer able to view it all. Yet since the universe includes everything, there can be no external observer.
Not sure what to think of it. I though QT applies only to subatomic particles. But then, the whole universe is indeed made up of these very particles.
And if our universe is real (whatever that means), who is observing us…?
Actually if you pick up on of Brian Greene’s books he discusses the higgs field, which is suppose to permeate the entire universe, this field may be the “observer” that we interact with at the quantum level that is doing the “observing”. Make sense? No? Read the book
